History at the Library


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

Perdi, known widely throughout the continent, is a very famous author of adult novels. But Perdi’s true identity is actually Vivian, the Imperial Night Librarian.

Vivian sends over the fourth draft of her latest novel to her publisher to be reviewed, but her work is criticized because the way she writes hetero s*x scenes isn’t erot*c at all.

“What? So you’re saying I’ll only know what sexual relationships are like after I experience it myself? But what can I do when I’m bound to a chastity contract?”

Unfortunately for Vivian, she had to sign a chastity contract in order to be hired as an imperial servant, and has been forced to remain a virgin ever since. Worse still, only a member of the imperial family could break the contract … but Vivian only has eyes for Ray, a mysterious man who visits the library every night.

But as it turns out, Ray is the imperial archduke and the emperor’s brother! One day, he approaches her with a sweet offer that she can’t resist …

Even though its by far only 4 chapters, considering the plot, I'm loving it so far.

A curious and peculiar FL who is struggling in her writing, RELATE MUCH.

Thank you to Vi, the translator for picking this up and I am beyond excited and looking forward for future updates! (On Wednesdays and Fridays, apparently)


oh btw she also translates other novels so check it out and lets support her!?❤

ugh so much love for this?

Translated chapters at this point have not even gotten to the FL and ML's actual involvement yet, but I already love this!! Jumped right onto this after reading the Promo — the FL seemed so loveable. While I love the smut genre, I have to admit it's difficult to find an endearing FL.

Still can't say much at this point but I found the writing pretty engaging (huge props to the translator!), what caught my attention that makes it slightly different to the usual was the beginning s*x scene that's movement-focused... more>> instead of sensual-focused — just because in the beginning the FL is merely a 3rd party observer, so it only tells us what she sees since she's not feeling it. Even then, the narrative surprisingly didn't feel superficial at all. Sometimes I personally find it hard to invest in smut characters that are introduced by throwing us into an out-of-context intimate s*x from the get-go (then progress retrospectively). On the other handdd... those take too long to get into action can be boring too, because, uh, I need to know the smut quality before deciding whether to continue. In that regard, this takes a nice balance in the beginning by giving us our share of smut, together with a grasp on the FL's persona through her narrative — without throwing her into the action directly. (Did that make any sense at all?)

Anyway, can't give a proper rating to a smut novel until the actual smut comes into action — but having very high hopes and would absolutely love to see more! <<less

I love the novel itself, hands down to the author! But the translation released is too slow and was divided into multiple parts which makes the reading experience frustrating, will go back to it after two years. Bye!

not gonna rate it yet since the romance has yet to even start. They haven't even reached any sort of agreement yet but I'm assuming it's in the next chapter or very likely a few from chapter 35.

like it says ray the archduke-emperors older brother-is forced by his younger brother to soon take in a wife (hoping to warm his heart) and I'm guessing he takes an interest in getting with Vivian (mc) who he's been having talks with at the library.

vivians situation is so that her editor/publishers feel that... more>> her novels, despite being labelled as erotica are getting dry-not evoking strong emotions eg desire. And so advises her to get some experience for herself which she cannot as she's bound to the castle to life-meaning must keep chasteandlie like a nun unless a royal himself frees her from such fate, being the ML.

I think he ends up finding out her identity as perdi (the hot-shot writer) and probably agree too exchange a give and take relationship which later blossoms to love (although she had shown in him interest)

p.s he has rumors of him being notorious and evil but he's still a virgin unlike he's player bro.

i think its worth a shot. The sh*t between emperor, the chick n that one duke is messy lol. <<less
