Rules for Heiresses by Amalie Howard

 

DNF @ 31%

Well, it's AAPI month and I'm reading all of the Asian-authored books that are on my Kindle that I wasn't able to get to during the rest of the year. I had high hopes for RULES FOR HEIRESSES even though I didn't like THE PRINCESS STAKES. For starters, childhood friends to enemies to lovers. Also, a Creole hero who's ambivalent about assuming the dukedom and a heroine who likes to dress in drag. There was a lot about this book that I felt I should have loved, but it didn't really work for me. I just didn't feel like there was enough tension and it kind of felt like it was too modern and too precious. I loved THE BEAST OF BESWICK but so far nothing has hit the same. I keep buying her books because I want to recapture that same high, but the last three books I've read of hers really didn't work for me. Alas, the search continues...

2 to 2.5 out of 5 stars
