I’m A Villainess, But I Picked Up the Male Lead


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

I possessed the most powerful villainess in a novel, Countess Edina.

To be exact, the villainess who attempted to assassinate the male lead, took his heart, and sold it to a neighboring country.

And so, I tried everything to avoid the male lead until I got his heart back. But then, I happened to find him one bloodied night.

I tried to look away and just leave him there, but his condition was simply too terrible.

‘Just this time, and only this time! I’ll help you and pretend I don’t know anything!’

However, since this is the nth time I run into him, I think it would be better to just leave the male lead there next time.

I’d rather just be nice to him for once, pay my debt, and get over everything!

“No, I don’t need your kindness.”

But… I think the male lead despises me too much…

Can I survive all this?


“I still remember those days when you would poison me and send assassins after me.”


“Yet, once again, I still love the Countess.”


The male lead, who saw me as an enemy just a year ago, is now confessing to me, the villainess.

“Doesn’t this make me seem like I’m crazy?”

I was frozen and couldn’t say anything, but it was I who felt crazy.

“But that’s okay. Because I am a crazy bastard.”

He whispered softly to me in a deep voice.

It wasn’t that I disliked how he’d changed…

Ha. This is all too much. He’s exactly my taste-

What should I do?

It barely has a chapter and has already been rated with 1 star? Amazing. I also go alone in the beginning so I am one to speak, but, at this moment I only have compliments, a plus is that the artist of the cover, I think the second cover? The cover in which he appears with the male lead; is the same as the manhwa and novel "How to protect the heroine's older brother". The labels are to my liking and they make me have high expectations, the fact that... more>> this is the most powerful villain and not a simple extra who died trying to capture the heart of ML makes it even better, this villain tried to do that but in the literal sense of the word. I long to see what she has ahead and also to solve my various doubts that the description left. I am very excited, if my opinion changes over time and as it updates I will lower my ranking, however I doubt it very much. The translation is quite good, I do not know if I can say much since English is not my native language and I speak it very little so I have to translate it into my language, but it was translated quite well and I saw no faults, it was understood in a way excellent. <<less

I have no doubt this could be a gem for most readers. The story is interesting, it's just that I personally did not like the pacing of it. It's quite slow and explains a lot without anything much happening. Already at c3 but we are still at the introduction part of the plot and grasping the world.
