It's in that awkward state where the story has a bad length. It would have been better off cutting off more elements to make it a compact short story, or making it longer to add more depth in characterization, interactions, and plotting/scheming.

But otherwise, it's a cute story.

So far so good. The protagonist is a smart, level-headed woman who makes the best of what initially seems like a bad situation. Good business sense, sensible territory management, and a respectable attempt at learning what she doesn't know. The male lead is sensible too, albeit a bit obsessed with dragons. The whole thing gives me a vibe of steady, comfortable slice-of-life growth with the occasional small drama from distant capital city politics. Of course, the first big drama is about to happen now, so we'll see how the author... more>> treats it. <<less

This story actually had some potentials but unfortunately, it's executed poorly and perfunctorily. Also, it didn't help much that the characters weren't that likeable, especially MC and ML.

... more>>

MC praised herself in implicit ways as a magnanimous and wise young duchess who loved her people but sometimes, she also could be apathetic towards others. She only listened to something that she deemed interesting or important and didn't bother with anything else. But how could she become a wise ruler without listening indiscriminately? What she deemed as unimportant was maybe important for other people so she shouldn't determine whether it's important or not by her own interest.

Meanwhile, ML was actually a smart guy but he was a horrible ruler. He immersed himself with dragons and didn't bother to improve his poor territory. He also spent his money on dragon's maintenance until his new bride, MC, was forced to be a vegetarian. Thankfully, MC was a capable woman and had many ideas to help him managing his territory.

Another unlikable character was the duke aka MC's father. He was weak and couldn't even stand up for his own daughter. It's later revealed that MC's marriage with ML was his own idea because ML was his friend's son. But still, he should at least try to prove MC's innocence first before sending her away. How could he let MC have a bad reputation among aristocrats? And if he took his time to investigate, he would come to know that it's all Charlotte's doing so he wouldn't be so amicable towards her who he considered as his 4th daughter. He also shoud tell MC about his thought about her marriage with ML so she wouldn't leave in sorrow.

Aside from the duke, the king was also a horrible character. MC mentioned that he was a good ruler but if he was like that, how could he punish MC without any proper trial? Before listening to MC's testimony, he directly gave her a verdict. Really such as "wise" ruler.


The dragon also failed to become a highlight of this story because:


Aside from being an expensive pet and a mean of transportation, they didn't have any other use. Really such a waste.

It’s a cute story, there are pastel dragons, a ML with a good disposition and a smart fl. But why do these stories always screw the families of the villain? If they did nothing wrong beyond being related and not paying enough attention to their children’s behaviors why are they punished too?

It's good for a quick read. Easy to get done in one day and it has a satisfying ending for the most part.

If it was better executed, it would get more attention and stars but because it was one of those rushed ones, it didn't. But it's on the better side of these rushed plot novels
