Being a huge author's fan makes me frustrated this time.

I don't mind the novel being fluffy and Mary Sueish, but I do mind an abrupt ending. It was like the author decided to drop it halfway.

Has no over thoughts, the plot was finished before you even have time to enjoy it.

I'm just here to write a review because I almost missed this gem due to its rating (back then 3.9).

I'm glad I didn't though and look forward to every update. So hoping to contribute with a 5* review.

This chinese novel takes place in european medieval times which in itself is refreshing even though the times and world depicted aren't refreshing or "fresh" at all yet it is awfully close to historical truth (regarding absence of medieval dixi toilets for example).

The ruthlessness and darkness that envelops the storyworld can sometimes be... more>> engulfing but MC and ML interactions with each other as well as how they handle ruthless side characters brought me to tears many times and brought light into the foggy storyworld.

The description text made the ML sound like a playful dandy IMO but he is more like a playful lion in regards to MC. Semi-tsundere ML meets awfully honey-laden MC (unbeknownst to MC).

Translation for me 5/5. Easy to emerse in the story. Wonderful wording almost poetic. It does the authors other publications justice.

Highly recommend. <<less

Sickly, gorgeous jewelry and fragrance maker MC transmigrates into a world with Game of Thrones-style sadistic nobles. Brash but chivalrous duke's son ML is the only one who shares MC's values. ML is an infamous playboy, and MC was murdered by an obsessed stalker and believes that love only means destruction. But there's a ton of adorable flirting with oblivious but silver-tongued MC and semi-tsundere ML.
MC is described as a captivating flower that withers even as it blooms, and that's a good description of the world as... more>> well, which is full of jewels, silk, and decadence, cruelty and beauty side by side. The European ambience and 18th-century fashions are a nice change of pace from the usual danmei. It's also nice to see multiple female characters with their own motivations and psychology.
The story focuses mainly on the flirting between MC and ML and their developing romance, with some layers of psychological depth. It reminded me of a honey caramel wrapped in dark chocolate. The intro and ending are the thin layers of chocolate, the romance is the big gooey caramel inside. Regarding the external plots (MC's negotiations and ML's family issues) :

Both external plots are wrapped up quickly (esp for ML, his family issues are resolved by chapter 9) and without much fuss (MC's trade agreements are all negotiated offscreen). More time gets spent on side characters who provoke development in MC and ML's relationship.

A lot of authors would have drawn things out for dozens of chapters, and I would have eagerly read them. But clearly that's not what the author wanted to do with this story. It wraps up a bit quickly, but for me it worked. Here's hoping for some extras! <<less

The world logic is so bad it makes my laugh. Its so blatantly black and whiteing the story. And the MC miraculously becomes dumb in situations to be a damsel in distress despite being so smart in other situations. im actively trying to ignore that bc I love sickly handsome MC shous

translation quality is really good I give that 5/5

The translator did an exquisite job with the translation, as the words invokes jeweled imagery that I'd have associated with fantasy manga/novels.

The MC though fragile, seems shrewd and has good judgment of complex situations so far, even though he suffers from past mental shadows.

The MC is very experienced -- no virginal romance interest here, his very presence reads visceral, brutal, and cunning. So far, the chemistry between the two is very explosive, and I look forward to reading more for sure!

I hadn't read a Chinese novel with a medieval Europe setting til now so this is interesting! The MC's calm and collected attitude makes me feel just how mysterious he probably is to the other characters in the story. The ML doesn't strike me as a scum man?? The descriptions for the other noble characters make him sound like an angel lol

They've only just met twice so far but I'm already looking forward to their next interactions (◍•ᴗ•◍) ✧*。

The translation is also really good and super easy to read! Thanks... more>> to the translator (s) and editor (s) ! (╹▽╹) <<less
