USA Today bestselling author Amalie Howard whisks you away with a historical romance full of drama, true love, and the perfect happily ever after.

Readers will devour this tale of:

  • A rebellious heiress determined to be independent

  • A shunned duke forced to return to his family estate

  • And a scandal between them that will have the whole ton aflutter

Sometimes, finding love means flouting the rules...

Born to a life of privilege, Lady Ravenna Huntley rues the day that she must marry. She's refused dozens of suitors and cried off multiple betrothals, but running away—even if brash and foolhardy—is the only option left to secure her independence.

Lord Courtland Chase, grandson of the Duke of Ashvale, was driven from England at the behest of his cruel stepmother. Scorned and shunned, he swore never to return to the land of his birth. But when a twist of bad luck throws a rebellious heiress into his arms, at the very moment he finds out he's the new Duke, marriage is the only alternative to massive scandal.

Both are quick to deny it, but a wedding might be the only way out for both of them. And the attraction that burns between them makes Ravenna and Courtland wonder if it'll truly only be a marriage of convenience after all...

Most stories will have you wade through the shallow waters of a few introductory chapters to get our feet wet. But, in Rules for Heiresses, Ms. Howard tosses you straight into the deep-end as our hero and heroine (in disguise) first face off in a battle of wits at the card table and then a battle of wills when they are soon after caught in a very compromising position.


Betrothed as children and the best of friends until bigotry and greed tear them apart, Ravenna and Courtland were destined to be reunited, but old hurts and new enemies are determined to destroy any chances of a "Happily Ever After" for this volatile couple.

Fortunately for them both, Ravenna is no damsel in distress, willing to simply let fate run it's course!

To put it bluntly, she's a bit of a bad-ass! And I love her to pieces.

Courtland is no slouch in that department either, but years of childhood mental abuse have created protective walls around his heart that only a woman as strong-willed as Ravenna stands a chance of breaching them.

Finding in Courtland someone who accepts her unconditionally, Ravenna is more than up for the challenge of winning his heart and taking down anyone who stands in her way.

If you love stories that feature strong heroines who fight as passionately as they love and heroes that adore them for it, then you will simply love Rules for Heiresses as much I did.

It's a fast paced and steamy roller-coaster ride that doesn't hesitate to break the traditional rules and roles of your typical historical romance set in this period, taking readers on one hell of a ride!
