I Got Marked By My Shadow Guard After Pretending To Be An Alpha


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

The second prince from the Yan State, Yu Yan, has pretended to be an alpha for many years, but after having an unexpected heat, he slept with his personal shadow guard.

And what is more unfortunate is, due to Yu Yan using suppressant medicines long-term, damaging his constitution, his heat is no longer controllable.

He can only ask his shadow guard to assist him regularly to deal with his heats, but good thing is that his shadow guard is very obedient and loyal, willing to do whatever he says, and doesn’t mind helping him.

But the situation slowly becomes strange –

Yu Yan, with a hoarse voice, cursing: Get out!

The shadow guard restrains him in his embrace, with an innocent look in his eyes: Where does master want me to pull out from?

Yu Yan: …QAQ

And even later, the new Yan State emperor ascends the throne, the young monarch sits upright on his dragon throne, under the gaze of of many: vomits –

The state officials suddenly realized that their emperor was pregnant.

A nice quick read.

I'm not a super big fan of this type of novel (although I like them sometimes), and it was decent. Nothing special, but at least the characters didn't feel absolutely soulless. They weren't fleshed out the most, but for a short story they were fine.

The plot was predictable and bored me though. The romance was average. I would recommend this novel if you really like this type of novel or if you just want to read a quick novel that isn't tr*shy.

I love it so much! Mu yungui is such a considerate, devoted, doting and excellent alpha ML. I loved how the characters developed, and how both MC and ML's relationship advanced.

... more>>

love how Mu Yungui went against Yu Yan to give birth again, being mindful of the latter's health. But the princess would've been adorable too~


Their children in the extras were sooo adorable! I'm already shipping Little Leafy (i see as gong) x Little Blockhead (I see as shou) hehe. Also, the second couple Ye Shu & Jin Wang was also super cute. It'd be nice if there was a sequel about the two CPs children.

It's one of the best omegaverse BLs, totally worth reading! <<less

Translator here. I really really like this prince x shadow guard pairing. One silently loving (but also being a blockhead), the other being a tsundere.

Simply too fluffy and with the novel being only 25 chapters, it's a very easy read! You don't need to read the other novel to start on this. One of my top favs for ABO world

I like the story!! I just hope that the author develops the plot because it is too short, 25chapters. I find it really cute, the love story between the MC and his shadow guard. Because I'm bored with the usual alpha emperor 😅 or dominant alpha.

It's an okay short featuring ancient ABO. The story itself was pretty bland and the characters were not that interesting.

Like the summary states, MC goes into heat and is marked by his shadow guard ML. There's some weird pseudo-in*est in the middle. Then MC becomes the emperor and has kids with ML. The end.

All in all, not bad. I found it cute, wholesome, and it was good for its intended purpose - a short fluffy ABO novel.

I thought that the MC and ML were good characters (not annoying, not s*upid, etc) and their relationship was pretty adorable. It was respectful and although there were a few dub-con moments where the MC was under the influence of pheromones, he was still coherent enough to give his consent (which is great, seeing that most ABO novels gloss over this entirely).

The story was a bit rushed,... more>> but I went into this knowing this would happen - there's not a whole lot you can do with 25 chapters. However, I wasn't really reading for the plot anyway, more for the romance, so I was satisfied with how the story went. A solid 4.0/5.0 stars from me.

(Also, the translation for this is very good! A big kudos to the translator for their hard work <3) <<less

Rather cute, no smut.

There is actually a storyline but its not really the main point. Important is the flow between MC an ML which love each other but are unable to confess.

I think it's sweet and perfect if you need something in-between.

I like it!

Well I didn't have much hope for the novel and thought that it would be bad but no. It's not that bad.

Firstly you need to know that it's actually a side story not a main story. So author wrote it as a fanservice I guess.

Haven't read the main text tho. Anyway, the story is mainly based on their relationship and a little bit of politics. So don't expect too much of the plot and enjoy the short story.

A fast read with a nice male lead and a decent enough plot for a short story. It's a cute read with a lot of fluff and it actually has consent for the most part. There's some plot, but it's not really important or good enough for me to give it 5 stars, but it's a short story. All things considered, it's a nice read if you read it mainly for the romance. Sorry for the bad English and have a nice day.

Ahhhh Just what I needed right now, something cute, simple and sweet. A perfect read if you're looking to de-stress at the end of the day. The story and sweetness starts right off the bat, sometimes you just don't want 30 chapters of slowburn. Only criticism is that the bedroom scenes are left to the imagination, there are ways to write sensual moments without being explicit, hell I'll be completely satisfied with kissing and foreplay if writtened well. All in all, I'm pretty happy with this novel!

Cute short story worth to read. 1st time read abo in ancient china, so for me it’s had a different feel. Because the chapter is short, the story is rightly pace, and it’s wrap up quite nicely. Tq

It was a short ride, the pace is just right as it doesnt dwell on irrelevant details.

If you want to read a short, fluffy, no dog blood good bl novel, this is for you.

It just lacked more extra talking about their married life and the little blockhead UwU. I want more!!!

Nothing special but I'm giving it 5 stars because the author accomplished, without unnecessary bells and whistles, exactly what she wrote it for: to bask in sweet CP content.

See, a good story doesn't have to be complicated and poetic to be good. It just has to put forth exactly the author's intentions.

This one definitely delivered dig food without bogging readers down with dog blood that end up with plot holes and cringe plot armors that could've been avoided.

I just completed this series and I fell in love with it. It didn't have that much of dog blood but it wasn't without it. Lobe both of their relationship. But on the same time its too slow progressed. They didn't realize each others feelings at all which was quite frustrating, but all in all. I loved the series. And actually I was hoping they will show yan hong's (fifth prince) love story too but I will reluctantly let go

It's a side story from Marked by a Tyrant After Transmigrating. Although the main cp from the main novel will have cameo here, it is fine to read this by itself.

I completed the novel in a day which is pretty short, sweet and nice to bridge over your readings. There wasn't really any plot since the problems are almost solved very quickly and easily. For an ABO novel I actually expected a little more smut but it's very little and non descriptive.

I do like the interaction between the MC and... more>> ML. Both grew up together - well they met at a young age so they are pretty much in love with one another but both have mouths that are for decoration. It took a while for them to finally declare their love. My only regret was ML still feels a bit formal to the MC and I wished he calls him some special nickname after they get together. <<less

It was a nice short novel to pass time. The plot is easy and there's no unnecessary drama or prolonged problem. But why do I give 3 stars? I just don't like the personality of the shou. He's too tsundere and he act like a pampered young master in front of the ML. Although he do have some strong personality considering ... more>>

He can become the emperor by scheming. So he do have good personality of an MC


But I don't really like a tsundere shou. But well it's short. So I don't really get disappointed. <<less

I just casually started reading this after taking interest from the summary but a pleasant surprise awaited me! It took me a couple of chapter before I realized that this is the story of the couple I was curious about (from Marked by a Tyrant After Transmigrating)

No wonder this ancient omegaverse felt familiar. Grateful that the had author made this story as a standalone. Not much complications so the story turned out very cute and free of dogblood. I'm actually fine that the focus is in their relationship instead... more>> of royalty infighting (which I see as commonplace among ancient stories) Pregnancy around last part of the story. MC loves kids though I understand they cannot have one in the middle of throne struggles.

Also, as a note there will be the common timeline with the other story + cameo of the transmigrator friend


it is when he experienced estrus when he visited the prime minister Ye Shu. It felt novel coming from another perspective as they came from another kingdom.


To conclude, its a good read when taking a break from long novels. Since it's cute and doesn't have any stressfull stuff and satisfied my wanting to read more omegaverse existing in ancient era with billowing clothes and all. <<less

This is an ABO story with impreg.

The story is nice and easy to read. Author said there's not much plot but there actually is! But yes, not much character development.

No angst and a happy ending ;)

I enjoyed reading it.

Absolutely Fun Enjoyable Great novel!

Short but not heavy nor it was light. It was well written in the pace of the story, plot and characters.

To be honest, better read the first novel first before this, or at least Don't Forget like me that this novel has spin-off with timeline started earlier than this. Because the MC keep mentioned Ye Shu (MC of other novel) as if we know who he is or what his role or if his character is good or not. It took me few chapters to remember... more>> this novel has spin-off and double check the name of the characters. Lol

Anyway this novel is really Enjoyable. The characters all well written and Lovable.

Great start and Great ending!

I LOVE IT SOOOOOOOO MUUUUCH!! Now I'm gonna read the Spin-off! <<less
