A soldier trained in war finds himself being schooled in manners by a red-headed tyrant known as The Terror of the Terringtons.

Sergeant Ross MacCailan of the Rifles and newly elevated to the title of Viscount St. Jerome reluctantly returns to England to enter the fight to retain Wellington as Commander of the British Army. Under orders from Wellington Ross has a month to turn from a battle-hardened warrior into an elegant gentleman of the Ton. He is determined to do whatever it takes to succeed; even if it means he must place himself beneath the dainty and ruthless thumb of a lady as exacting as she is alluring.

Known for her success in turning country bumpkins into eligible men about town, Miss Adalaide Terrington has never failed a pupil yet; but then, she has never had a pupil quite like Viscount St. Jerome. Bringing the former sergeant up to scratch will require all of her talents as a tutor, and resisting her growing attraction to the viscount will require all of her skills as a woman.

Adalaide has never met a man she couldn't browbeat into submission, and Ross has never given any quarter to those who would seek to conquer him. While the political battle for Wellington rages on, it is the battle for the heart that poses the greatest challenge...and danger.
