“I may have married you, but I have no intentions of sharing a bedroom.”

Dooha Yel Bashal, the only princess of the Bashal tribe.

Dooha, who was deprived of her position as chieftain simply because she was a woman, decided to marry the duke for the sake of her tribe.

Her marriage partner was the owner of Halton and the strongest swordsman in the Empire. Grand Duke Leonhart von Esbaden Halton.

“As long as you don’t lose your dignity as the Duchess of Esbaden, I won’t care about what you decide to do here. ”

Contrary to his dazzlingly beautiful face, eyes cold as ice stared at her.

As if no matter what happens, he wouldn’t give Dooha his heart.

Yes, this marriage was just for an alliance.

It was obvious that it would be like this.

“I should have told you that you’re the only woman in my life.”

When did it begin? His blue eyes contained her alone, filled with ferocious longing .

Dooha came to a realization only when she heard the sound of her heart crazily beating.

Their marriage alliance was no longer just an alliance.

just for the few chapters translated I can firmly say the FL has become one of my favorite fls, damn she is so baddass, not a pushover and and smart, she's just the best

... more>>

(especially in this part)

"I have something to tell you in advance."

He spoke with a voice as cold as his cold eyes.

"I took you as my wife, but I do not intend to share a bedroom."

Dooha was not s*upid nor ignorant enough to misunderstand what the man in front of her meant.

Although she frowned at him, Leonhart continued speaking with his indifferent face, as though he didn't care at all.

"It's not like we got married because we wanted each other, so there's no need to live like a real couple."

He wasn't wrong.

Dooha, too, agreed to this marriage of alliance only for the sake of the national interest.

Of course, there was a personal reason, but it was a story that did not need to be revealed.

"I don't care what you do here as long as you don't lose your dignity as the 'Duchess of Esbaden'."

Do not invade each other's private space, but be faithful to each other's roles in the public eye.

That was the Duke's first rule of marriage.

"Then I wish you all the best in the future... "

Leonhard stood up slowly.

"... Madame."

He left the bedroom with similar words of farewell.

The short but intense first night passed in vain.

Dooha, who stared blankly at the place where her husband had disappeared from, burst out laughing.

No luck either.

'I can't believe my husband is such a j*rk who can only stay to say what he wants to say.'

Dooha ruffled her hair violently.

She abandoned her homeland and escaped to the Empire, but there was nothing she liked about the man who became her husband except for his outer appearance.

"I'll be glad if my husband doesn't get naive... "

Just then, she remembered what her brother had said before she left Bashal.

Slowly, she felt her head getting hotter with anger.

Doesn't that guy even know who he got?

She, Dooha, was the princess of Bashal.

Among all five tribes of Bashal, there were very few people who could honestly ignore Dooha. She was initially a princess and was even nominated for the next tribal leader. Instead, Nihir, who was insane, got the position.

"It's ridiculous."

She didn't want him to play with her like a goddess, but just to be treated fairly. It was not as if she was a docile thing that would leave as soon as she got hurt.

'We aren't going to share a bedroom? We're not a real couple, so let's not care about each other?'

'How dare you treat me as if I was a sad princess who has been forced to sell everything she had? Who do you think you are to accept me as your wife, sir?'

(I love her especially at this part since normally other fls would react like crying or telling themseleves "it's okay I'm going to make you fall for me or something but not her, she isn't sad nor crying, she is just like "how dare you me treat me, a PRINCES, like this, she's truly the best)


as for the male lead well I don't have anything to say about him since so far he has been behaving like a a**hole, but there's room for improvement especially since it seems he's getting interest in her

It would be nice if he falls first and struggle to make her fall for him

overall the story is good so far, I really like this pair of Strong FL and cold ML so now I'm corious how this is going to progress <<less

First of all, I didn't expect that the FMC would be a strong and smart one. I was expecting a timid and quiet lady but surprisingly she's not. Dooha's character is admirable, I love FLs like her and for the ml, Leonhart, he's decent (well not rly) and yes kinda possessive (?). Even though he's not showing it, he actually (slightly) cares for his wife. He ain't that tr*sh like the other mls out there who are cruel to their wife just because it's an arranged marriage.

Same storyline as the... more>> others but I can't wait to read the next chapters. <<less

This novel is really worth reading!! The FL and ML are ones of the best main characters and their relationship is so strong!! This novel is for people who don’t like long misunderstandings and the FL is STRONG AND BAD*SS they both work together to solve their problems and it’s not actually like what other reviewers saying the FL end up depending on the ML eventually THIS IS NOT TRUE!! They both contribute and help each other there is no one better than the other please read it fully and... more>> then judge it’s one of the better Korean novels that doesn’t have the repetitive overused reincarnation/possession element!! Don’t miss this! <<less

Another "strong", "smart" FL who gets outsmarted and saved by the ML all the time. Why not just write her as a weak idiot if every OI with a strong FL is just going to have her play the role of damsel in distress? So annoying.

Honestly at the beginning I quite liked it, but then it suddenly changed the tone in a completely different direction? I mean she was supposed to be the the steong fML but as soon as the ML did something unexpected it got weird. The interest in her was way to fast?

... more>>

he wanted to see her embarrassed state in chapter 5? Like bro just was described as cold now he suddenly got interested cause she can look him in the eyes?

Also the sentence "Dooha froze on the spot, like a rabbit facing a lion. It was a very unfamiliar look." What is this 💀 and that in only 5 chapters, nah thank you.

Also tbh honest I felt like the pacing was so unnecessarily fast? I dont like reading about wedding preparations but that was just way to fast imo.


Well not my cup of tea, maybe the others liked it, I sadly did not. <<less

The author brings Dooha in strong but then she gets held back after that and protected by her husband. She can't be seen being aggressive as a political representative of the foreign country. I appreciate her learning how to deal with the politics and etiquette of her new home, but I'm disappointed she isn't shown keeping up her physical skills. I'm going to be very disappointed if she is still a brilliant fighter in six months despite no training as that's just not how muscles work...

The translation is very good,... more>> though, and I will revise my opinion if future Dooha gets to continue being as badass as she was in the first 10 chapters. <<less

The FL and ML are both strong and clear headed, I love how they clear the issues among theirself and how they trust each other along the way. Definitely will be one of my favorite novel.

I really prefer strong FL leads like her who aren't annoying. I also like that she's a hands on and efficient duchess who doesn't discriminate. I just had to disagree about her point of view about family issue discussed in the pub which she thinks they're the same. The duke denied but she still said it is which is quite wrong for me given she's a wise character. The duke then had to say no again and explain..

Leon looks after her real well imo, tho its after the first night... more>> and morning after incident. <<less

i quite like it at first because she is 'strong and bada**' but she gets annoying as the story progress, She spends more time with the 2nd ml. She is self righteous for her own good. She was supposed to be a chieftain but she is like a damsel in distress. There are time that she is strong but sometimes she is just like those typical og FL in transmission novel

Really love this story so far. I like Dooha and her character. I feel like she is the most realistic one among fantasy FLs.
