If I Disobey the Duke

“Sin… it’s a word that suits me, not you.”

A mesmerizing low-pitched voice rang into my ears. It sounded heavy and deep as if it came from a cave.

It was a devilish baritone, like a deep rumble from a cavern. Lily didn’t seem to notice how it sounded like he was restraining his anger.

This was the first time she heard his voice.

“Tell me. Who were you mourning for until our wedding day today?”

Lily wore a plain black dress that covered her from neck to toe in uncomfortable and unsightly fabric. Even if she really was mourning, the outfit was just too excessive.

“Is it for your first husband who died during the war? Or is it for your second husband who died recently?”

“It’s not like that. I’m really… Ah!”

He turned her over until she was on all fours. A hand mercilessly slid into her dress. The sound of the stiff fabric crumpling accompanied her scream.

It was obvious what a touch to the inner thigh meant. Tension and fear curled in her gut as the duke firmly held her by her hair, causing her to look up and see the sacred artefacts and statues on the wall. Her conscience flinched.

Lily shut her eyes and his voice pierced through like a punishment once again.

“Or were you thinking about your third husband’s―my―death?”

Duke Vladislav de Winter. And as of today, Lily’s third spouse.

They were supposed to be having their wedding in this very chapel.

Lily was unable to answer his question as his fingers unexpectedly dug into the apex of her thighs. Thick, calloused fingers spread her flesh and brushed against a particularly sensitive spot.

Electricity coursed through her body.

I think I can understand a bit to those who have voted a 1 star. Honestly, stretched out misunderstanding is a pain to read but then this is only my opinion, the ML is what frustrates me. Right now the only good thing about him is that he's a gentle, kinky beast in bed, but isn't the right man for seeing things through in the female lead's POV. He could have done things better rather than shutting her up with mind blowing s*x when it's unfavorable to his side or... more>> when his libido breaks like a dam whenever he sees her.

FML seems to like it that she's on the receiving end of it all. What I can describe Lily is "submissive and breedable" she's that kind of woman because she's been trained that way. Perhaps many would find her annoying but give this girl a slack. I'm gonna be completely bias here since Lily is trapped in her situation where her family deemed her as a convenient tool to alleviate their status. So when she thinks that her husband is using her as plaything, she has the right to think and feel that way because Vlad's actions said so, even if he acted out for her own good, his methods are going to backfire on him sooner or later. So far it's so-so, there are other parts that confused me because it feels hanging or disconnected to a particular scenario.

If y'all want smut, this is for you because both of the main characters are sexy and kinky. However, if you want a refreshing, healthy communication, slowly back out on this one because you'll rip your hair out from frustration. <<less

Giving it 3 stars because the s*x scenes are great. But that's it.
the plot and story of this novel is so... bland and boring, In my humble opinion of course.

Everyone's entitled to have their own preferences.
but the FL is just too frustrating!!

Over 100 chapters! And this chicken head is still living in her past.
she has spent months with her husband, and he's constantly reassuring her of an easier better life, but she keeps talking about "her duties" 🙄 and how she's scared 😑 and how she's this and that 🤦🏻‍♀️ biiiiiiiihhh get out that dark route. She doesn't believe in opportunities at all.
about to rename her museum, with all that past she keeps constant presenting over and OVER AND OVEEEERRR AGAIN!
she's so pessimistic that it's cringe worthy.
I just want to punch her in the head. It's too much s*upid stubbornness for me.
I don't really follow the story line anymore. I'll skim through the novel just for smut scenes and leave.
that's how unimportant and bland this novel has become for me.
If the author was fishing for readers to pity the FL, then he's gone beyond it for me.
he did the pity card so much that I'm just like, "she clearly too dumb to reason, maybe she does deserve a bit of suffering."
like, that's how dumb she is, you want life to teach her a lesson.

you burned my compassion up. I have none for her.

the story is not slow-burned... it's just ashes when the FL takes the stage.

This is really hot, and the translation is excellent.

The story beyond the smut is intriguing and both the male and female lead are likeable and interesting.

It seems like there’s a little mystery in this story, I have my suspicions based on the latest chapters I’ve read, but I won’t spoil the story by saying it.

The story is a heated one right away. 🥵 Like in the synopsis, she's been married many times and the ML is her latest husband. Besides the heated moments not much has happened between them yet.

the smut is fantastic! Steamy and hot, but literally everything else (besides the translation, they're doing phenomenal) ? Frustrating.

the FL is the Submissive and Timid kind of dream girl from like, the 1800s. She lives for and fully accepts the ML but too timid to explain how his behaviors hurt her or take a stand to express herself. Admittedly, part of that is because she was abused and conditioned into that mindset, but still.

the ML is the dreamy, mysterious tall dark and handsome type, complete with a horrible childhood and... more>> trauma manifesting still in his current relationship with the FL. He's not very good at realizing his own actions are hurting the FL, only acting in what he thinks is best for her.

they both care and love each other, but they have little to no communication, making their misunderstandings both continuously occurring and taking dozens of chapters to clear up. They go back and forth, hurting each other because of the conclusions they jump to and then are too cowardly to talk to the other person about until one of them is rashly trying to avoid the other.

overall, if you want a healthy, communicative relationship this novel isn't for you. If you're just looking for a steamy smut novel, then it's right up your alley.

EDIT: it took over 170 chapters for the two to have their first real conversation. Even then, it's barely one. FL finally explained how ML's behavior is hurting her. We'll have to see how well this communication holds up. <<less

My only star goes to translator (s). Great effort and inhuman patience with reading every word of this crappy story.
It's smut genre, so I really, don't expect much. But still it goes far beyond the lowest level.
▪︎ FL is a mo**n. Like literally, she cannot spout a single normal sentence to the ML causing tons of misunderstandings.

▪︎ I strongly vote to remove tags: Clever Protagonist, Cute Protagonist, Smart Couple and Weak to Strong as they are nonexisting here.

▪︎ Throught the whole story FL constantly wallow herself in her bitter life not seeing the effort of people around her.

Very boring and frustrating story. Not recommended to anyone 🤢

this book is slow-burn and indeed sometimes the ML can be a little possessive of the FL.

as a reader of the manhwa as well, I prefer the novel much better. The timeline in the manhwa was actually confusing but in the novel, despite it's slow-paced story, you can see the story bulid-up compared to the manhwa. And lastly, the novel has smut unlike the manhwa.

there seems to be stories behind the leads and im excited to see how it would be solved as their relationship grows closer!

Came back to re-read this yet again as the manhwa came out and it's so incredibly disappointing compared to the novel.

For anyone coming to read this for the first time after reading the manhwa, beware! This is SLOW BURN compared to what they did in the manhwa. We only just got face reveal at like chapter 60, and the timeline is shuffled around for, I dunno artistic representation I guess??

Anyways, novel is a banger, ahem literally, if you like possessive and descriptive smut, this is for you!

The rating really doesn't match the sensuality and drama of this novel.

The translation is really clear and well-written.

Our FL is slowly growing and confidence.

This definitely feels like an exploration of patriarchy and sexuality. And I am totally here for it haha.

Both of our main characters have trauma and have a chasm to come together, but the journey is definitely interesting!

Many hot scenes 🤒🥵😳🔥

The family dynamic between our FL & her family is toxic- fascinating to see how it's explored.

Very much enjoying the journey 😊

Dear Author, you need to write full sentences to communicate. This is the base level skill required to write a story that we all can understand.

The premise of the plot had a lot of potential, the characters had potential, but the author...

Not sure which literary tool was engaged here but the dialogue was very very confusing. The premise of the main leads actions and thoughts I really didn’t understand.
Suspense is not derived from incomplete sentences. Please!
