Links are NOT allowed. Format your description nicely so people can easily read them. Please use proper spacing and paragraphs.

If she had to marry, she wanted to marry a normal man and live a quiet life.
However, the man she was to marry by imperial decree was the exact opposite.

The man who was holding down the borders of the nation, Chief Commander Lee Heon.

To him, MoonWon was the daughter of his enemy.
However, if she did not marry him, she would lose everything she was trying to protect.

“If you’d only marry me, I’ll live as if I’m dead.”
“…All you’re going to do is breathe?”

And like that, she got married in order to survive.

“You won’t be able to move with legs like that. Get on my back.”
“I received an imperial order to attend a banquet taking place at the Imperial Palace. Do you want to go with me?”

The way he treated her was very subtle.
However, her heart was strangely racing inside her chest.

Summary: As the daughter of a fallen noble family, MoonWon always did her best. After her family collapsed in shame and humiliation, she did her best to keep them afloat and alive. However, she is soon thrust onto the political chessboard as a pawn. An imperial decree orders her to marry Chief Commander Heon, the son of the Emperor's beloved consort. As she is swept up into the political intrigues that rock the nation, MoonWon decides to grit her teeth and make the most of it.

As the son of a... more>> woman who abandoned her family to enter the arms of the Emperor, all Heon can think about is revenge. In his eyes, all women are cutthroat monsters who only know how to manipulate others to get what they want. Therefore, when he is ordered to marry the daughter of the very woman who helped his mother gain the Emperor's favor, he has no thought of heeding the decree. But there is something about MoonWon that sparks his interest.

As the world turns against them and their marriage, Heon and MoonWon do their best to weather the storm. However, what cannot be will not be. Will this star-crossed couple find their happiness? Or will fate ultimately tear them apart?

Warning: Depictions of verbal and emotional abuse. Dubious consent. Graphic descriptions of violence.

Review: This was a long read. The first half was relatively fast compared to the second. Both the male and female lead can be quite stubborn! However, if you enjoy seeing the male lead grovel for forgiveness and affection, this may scratch that itch. It truly does feel like everyone is on a mission to tear the couple apart, and at times, their obstacles seem quite daunting. However, there are pockets of sweetness sprinkled throughout the novel that redeem the heavy, convoluted plot.

The leads slowly learn how to communicate with each other, but once they click, they're on the same page. The male lead is your typical historical army general. Little to no words, not very good at expressing himself, and very distrustful of others. However, once he falls in love, he loves with everything he's got. The female lead is a lot more hesitant, but she compliments the male lead very well and is suitable to be the wife of a chief commander. Overall, I enjoyed this novel. I'm not sure if it will be everyone's cup of tea, but I think that those who like novels like this will really love it. For others, it might be best to just pass on this one. <<less

Okay, so its still pretty early on in the novel, but I think I've read enough.

I totally get that the ML had a horrendous childhood, but I just can't stomach his apathy towards the fl. Throughout the first few chapters, he neglects and leaves her to endure the abuse from his mother and her attendants for months. And whenever they DO interact with each other, he's so unnecessarily aggressive, condescending, and just plain abusive. I'm frankly shocked that the FL wished to become closer to him, when all he's shown... more>> were tiny moments of bare minimum kindness. I feel absolutely disappointed and disgusted.

I quite liked the fl, but the way the ML treated her was just too unbearable for me. <<less
