It's safe to say this is one of my favorite novels I have ever read. Usually, I would review after I read everything to say something and I thought I might as well write about it now for those who are curious about the story itself. :) STRONG FEMALE LEAD ALERT!

Summary: The story is about the FL, Yujo, surviving as a fake wife under the name Dan SoYeon as her country (Yeha) was overtaken by the Red King/ML's Nation (Silver Nation). Yujo made a deal with her current fake husband... more>> Duke MoonYeo (also known as Ha Jewol) to at least survive, reunite with her brother, and finding the Heukra that could lead to possible revenge for her country.

While she readjusts to her fake identity, she found out that Heukra was connected to the murder of many families that mysteriously died as they said "A person will suddenly catch on fire and burn to death." Rumors say the person who is responsible for these deaths was a ghost similar to the deceased mother of the Red King/ML. This is how both Yujo and the Red King (who we find out his name is Garan) encounter each other as they find out who is behind the killing.

Note: Now that I got the gist of the story out of the way, there are some things I want to say just be on the safe side.

-The prologue does not in anyway or form define the character AND their relationship.
Spoiler

Many readers will be put off by how it is seen as adultery with her being married and nonconsensual. However, that is just a snippet of their relationship.

[collapse]
I do recommend everyone to read the tags before reading this novel.

-The first couple of chapter gives us information about the character so it tends to be a bit boring but it will pick up from there. :) -There are sensitive/somewhat dark themes I picked up from this novel like finding out why Duke MoonYeo/Ha Jewol does not like handsome features to Princess Muyeo's backstory.

-Now my last thing before y'all go off doing your thing is for those who want to know about the snusnu. The prologue was a bit intense as
Spoiler

it takes place at banquet and FL goes outside for some fresh air and the ML drags her into the room to do it. Eventually we are left with a cliffhanger of someone walking in on them lol.

[collapse]

Overall, I recommend reading this! A huge thanks to AnonAnemone for translating this! I had no problem reading their work so do check out the stuff they had already translated and are completed for like Doppio Senso, Stigma, & The Man's Perfect Wife!

*I shall edit this once more when this novel is completed* <<less

Well written and well translated. There were not too many hard terms but the world building is definitely not well established and explained. Well maybe the thing about the nine families was satisfactorily conveyed through the plot but I feel like there's not enough explanation or action about the divinity stuff.

Anyway, this is pretty much the same system as the usual kingdom but I'm not sure if I missed it or there's just no explanation why Garan was called 'Red King'. I don't understand. He's just a second prince? Just... more>> curious.

I hate that pig of a Crown Prince! How dare he! And ughhh what he did to 'him' it's disgusting but—

Spoiler

Although the Crown Prince made Jewol go through all those bullsh*t and disgusting stuff I still can't forgive Jewol for what he did to Yeha and Yuha and Yujo. No matter how he feel about the two it still doesn't erase the fact that he spied on them and put them through all those trouble. And he basically went lunatic at the end. His character was frustrating. I pity him for what the crown prince did to him but I also hate his sins.

[collapse]

Yujo is the kind of heroine who doesn't back down for the sake of her nation and family. She can also fight and she's smart but she's also s*upid.

About the ending:

Spoiler

WTF??? I didn't like how she just went and stole Jukmo for Garan to follow her. She admittedly went back to snatch her man. Lol. But seriously girl? You'd really put both Nations at risk for the sake of love? What bullsh*t is that? Have a complete family and experience love at the cost of Yeha which you protected. At the cost of your brother who died to protect you and the nation. I was honestly disappointed. And Garan too! Aaaag it's just so disappointing. I understand the Emperor's anger. They're both s*upid. It all went well because the next crown prince didn't take after his father but what if he turned out to be s*upid, immoral and incompetent? Reading Yujo's thought about everything being part of the destiny—how she came up with the thought that it happened all for the sake of the baby inside her like it's all meant to be and stuff—like girl are you shitting on me?

[collapse]

There's also r*pe. I don't care how you motherf*ckers justify this but point is there's r*pe. I don't care what emotions and feelings they both share but it's r*pe. He literally forced her. Tied her. What else does that mean????

I'm only rating this 4 stars because it was well written and well translated. I didn't have a hard time reading but I hate how he r*ped her. Period. And how they're both s*upid at the end of the book. <<less

Very good novel. Some people (like me) might come for the smut but damn did I stay for the story. Well done to the translator anonanemone, thank you so much for the excellent translation! I'm sad that you're no longer translating but thank you for finishing this story.

Came across this novel while browsing through NU. So far so good! The translator does a good job and I can't wait to see what happens next. The FL can sometimes come across as naive and brash and there's not much to say about the ML yet. Overall I would recommend others to read this

So far I have read two novels that I like in their mood, give me a good experience and enjoy reading because of the characters and the comprehensible narrative.

These novels are called Lady of YeonSung and The Rebirth of the Malicious Empress of Military Lineage. Yes, I highly recommend

Like the author's other works, this novel too didn't let me down. While I was slightly put off by the prologue, like mentioned before in another review, it is only a snippet of their relationship and happens towards the later half of the novel and when you finally reach that part, things really fall into place to make you realize that things aren't what they had seemed to be before. There's a stark contrast between the prologue and the main story, it's like two different MLs actually, so the build... more>> up of how their relation progressed to one stage to the another is really worth it.

Also, I'd like to say that the FL is a strong one, I saw few people say that she was quite naïve and I agree however
Spoiler

the FL is only a person who was forced to go to YeongSeong to save her land and it's people, she is by no means a trained person or a professional or has any such experience before so she might come off as a naïve one who uses brawls more than her brains but I don't dislike it. It actually seems quite realistic (amidst all the unrealistic stuff ofc)

[collapse]

Also, on a different note, I just have to write about how similar I found this story to one of my fave Mangas called 'Basara'. (Seriously if you don't wanna spoil yourself with either this novel or the manga, please ignore the spoiler.)
Spoiler

I mean, I was kind of intrigued when the ML was named as 'The Red King" like that's what's the ML from Basara is called as well. And then, it hit me that these two stories are so similar to each other. Like even the FL, she is supposed to be the ML' enemy as he's destroyed her homeland and then basically stands on the other side of him (like in Basara) however, falls in love with him without knowing his identity and even has s*x with him for the first time in a cave, after like escaping the clutches of death (LIKE IN BASARA) Then, the second male lead is a soft feminine kinda guy who does some questionable stuff at times (Like Agehaaaa) and then tries to save the FL and assist her, also gets... sexually harassed by hateful guys and eventually dies. Alright, maybe I'm reading too much into this but that's cuz the name The Red King just always reminds me of Basara alright, it's definitely not cuz I'm too jobless.

Anyways, that's why I felt like these two stories overlap in certain aspects, but this also reminds me that I should reread Basara once my exams are over lmao

[collapse]

So, I'd definitely ask people to read it, not just for the sake of the smut but also the plot, which is very interesting! A huge thanks to AnonAnemone for bringing us this great story through her very fluid translation. <<less

by the same author of The Man's Perfect Wife. Concept of these two stories are the same: ... more>>
Spoiler

tragic past which was caused by each main characters' family

[collapse]

LoY is about our FL, who is sent to another land for a marriage and ML, the cousin of her husband. I know this sounds like a telenovela, where a wife cheats on her husband with her husband's relative but
Spoiler

i wouldn't say this is adultery considering the fact that it's a fake marriage, but some people might not have the same opinion as me

[collapse]

FL is okay: strong, capable but too naive and weak when the plot requires her to be naive and weak. ML is so-so, I find him very similar to the ML in TMPW.

i'd rather talk about the fake husband. What a tragic character. I really think that he is one of those cannon fodder characters in chinese novels. He is too pitiful, and his ending was even more pitiful.

the ending of LoY was sort of rushed, I felt like somebody broke up with me and I didn't get enough closure (not that serious tho) but yeah, it could've been better. Guessing by the epilogue, I think there will be another book about
Spoiler

the daughter of FL and ML. She seems to have some sort of prediction (?) power. She can see the future, I guess? But it wasn't elaborated much by author so I'm not too sure

[collapse]

overall, 4/5 because I'm not satisfied with the ending!!!! Especially the
Spoiler

death of the brother. I was hoping he would make it even though it was pretty obvious the author was gonna kill him off lol

[collapse]

translator anonanemone is the best. I've been following them since their first translation and I just can't spout enough compliments. Definitely full stars for the translator. <<less

story : 4.5/5

characters : 4/5

world building : 4/5

... more>> writing-style : 4/5

quite a good read, the smut seemed a bit like r*pe most of the time but the FL seems to like so so I guess we won't stop on that matter. The author took time to build his world and his characters, you can somehow guess it's a small kingdom in ancient china. It's a good ending but doesn't feel satisfying when you feel about the bad guys...

the read is enjoyable, sometimes the author really did some good foreshadowing making you think "don't tell me...". Some moment made me laugh but it could be just me (like the horse's love story xD).

recommended if you want smut, because yes, there's quite a lot of s*x, mostly the ML being a pure beast, big and full of stamina. The plot is full of betrayal and treachery with some clever wording.

4/5 <<less

I love this story. I love the plot, the drama, the characters, the sm*t, and I also love how this story got a happy ending (at least for the 2 leads) despite so many tragedies that had happened throughout the story. I really recommend this story for its good plot and its hot sm*t.

For a short and smut novel, this is full-packed with angst, mystery, smut and romance mixed together.

Almost all characters got depth. I feel sad for some characters especially FL and 2nd ML who became pawns of evils due to greed for the throne.

I thought happy ending was unreachable due to many sad incidents... but I'm glad I'm wrong this time.

Really love the story! It's a wholesome story. I love everything about it. Even with the unfamiliar fantasy background, it is easy to understand. Though the villains is a bit easy to defeat, it's still a great story. I just hope they have 2nd series for the kids!

Okay this one started off really dark for me because of the dub con. However, I fell in love with the great plot. All the twists and turns are so worth it! I also love the strong FL. Although she’s sometimes impulsive in doing things but it’s part of her charm. The ML is lovable except in those smut scenes with dub con. But then again FL really is in love with him and vice versa so I’m a bit confused here. Haha oh and I really love the ending!

Wow! I got hooked since the prologue and I couldn't stop reading it! I literally finished reading it in one day! I got to say that the translator did a wonderful job with this treasure! It was a fun and exciting read. At first, I was worried about the [email protected] tag. I was wondering if this is something that I could withstand since I am not a fan of victims falling for the predator genre, but I'm glad that I gave it a shot. I will definitely try other works... more>> from the same author since the author did an excellent job narrating the story and keeping you hooked in every chapter. As I was reading, I was wondering if I could actually like the ML after what he did in the prologue, but it was hard to stop myself from shipping him with the FL. There were times where I thought was cliche such as the cave scene or with some characters, but it was a good read for such as short story. I'm glad the author didn't drag the story plot, but I wouldn't mind reading the sequel :)

Spoiler

I wished there was a better ending for Jewol since his life was quite tragic and it was painful watching him being violated by the CP. Also, it would have been nice if there was a more in-depth look into the characters, especially the villains, such as the Crown Prince. It would be nice to see his human side rather than just the monster he is who is blinded by greed and power. I wished there were some details to make the reader hesitate to hate the villain as we learn his tragic background like with Jewol.

[collapse]

Overall, I would recommend this to anyone who just wants a quick read with good smut, plot, and fun characters. <<less

The novel is very good. It is well developed in my opinion, good translation and being short it is not boring. However, Jowal (second male lead) did not deserve that ending. The author from one moment to another wanted to paint him as the worst villain of the novel when the dialogues and his "villain" attitude did not fit at all with what we saw throughout the entire story.

It's definitely very disappointing that after everything the second ML went through, it had a disastrous ending.
