Predatory Marriage


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

Princess Leah wrote a suicide note ahead of her wedding.

It was because she was certain that she would die after the wedding night; a miserable end of a princess who devoted her life to the country and to the royal family.

But before giving up her life, Leah planned her last revenge to the family, one that would surely leave them in ruins even after she became a cold corpse.

She would bring them shame by being a non-virgin bride.

“Why did you throw away your first experience? Don’t you just want to run away?”

“I… I want to die.” Leah impulsively confided to the man she slept with for one night.

This novel has almost half the political intrigue of The Villainess Lives Twice and all the smut it should have to make it worth the 3.5 stars I'm giving it. If you read far enough, everything will make enough sense to read further. It is a nice novel. It is worth at least reading once.

Posting some info so you don't get blindsided. Overall I have mixed feelings, but I'll probably keep reading this.

Surprisingly dark CW list (doesn't spoil) ... more>>

dubious consent, attempted sexual assault, non-con/r4pe, roofies/aphrodisiacs, eating disorders, extreme child abuse, cannibalism, snuff/n3crophilia (?), incest feelings/intent, mind control, human trafficking, massacres, past genocide. This stuff isn't subtle, either.


I didn't expect to see

cannibalism (eating human hearts), snuff (murdering someone during s*x with them), or animal sacrifice (killing and eating the raw hearts)

"on screen, " even if it wasn't the main characters.

The Evil G*psy Race makes it hard to enjoy the story. The G-slur is used for the "Toma" race, which is basically a collection of racist Roma stereotypes. Ironically, there's a decent subplot about fictional racism against beastpeople.

I got sick of the weak MC, but later there's a plot-twist reason for it.

She was brainwashed with magic for a long time.

At first it seems like there are lots of plot holes, but several of them have been explained. I'm cautiously hopeful they'll all be resolved.

Despite the genre-typical dubious consent in the early smut, the romance is pretty sweet. ML is possessive but the yandere-adjacent tags seem to be for a different character. <<less

The story is juvenile... The sx scenes appear to be the true goal of the author and the rest is somehow thrown together to create some kind of justification and backdrop. For example, the casual remark by the princess that she ... more>>

is thinking of "reorganising the tax system one last time" before she leaves the palace... supposedly this happens one day before she is set to leave...

I understand that you kind of are expected to suspend judgement when there is a race in a story that is somewhere between "beasts" and humans, but reorganisation of the tax system yet again in a short period of time? By the supposedly weak princess, who is disregarded by all and basically will be sold off? In a society where women have no say? What terrible inconsistencies, this is basically an insult to the readership. Who actually holds the power in the royal family - and how on earth do they manage to hold on to that power when the one busy with all the state affairs is some "powerless" young woman (I forget how old she is, but probably late teens? early twenties?). Perhaps the author should consider consulting some political science books.

Furthermore, and I do not consider this a spoiler, this girl could literally have slept with any servant in the palace, why take the risk and look for trouble. The whole thing is non-sensical. Finally, how could anyone reading this think that a person who easily accepts that their partner in bed is crying and obviously is unwilling despite agreeing (I mean, if you ever were intimate in any way with another person (I literally mean just being friends here) - this kind of thing you can tell pretty quickly) is "sweet"? Can you imagine this situation in reality - you cry and want to escape but they keep coming at you??? This is not legally r*pe, I suppose, since she certainly consented, but this is regardless a bizarre situation.

She literally could have just killed herself before, if she really wanted to die as she so sorrowfully claims. Why bother with the whole ordeal of losing virginity? The MC is basically a genius at making self-harming choices and decisions, she is not clever and I can never imagine her dealing with court intrigue in a way, that would allow her to be in the position to change tax collection systems.

Rant over, read at your own risk. <<less

The storyline is a fresh new take from the normal princess trying to get away from a political marriage trope. Features a strong (but depressed) heroine, I'm looking forward to her relationship with our ML who (I hope) will help her regain her meaning in life. Love the smut and superb translation!

This is one of the best smut novels ever! It’s only been 11 chapters but the chemistry between the characters, the flow of the story, and the smut scenes are f*cking amazing.

Also, I want to say thank you to Ying Yue (the translator), for taking time out of her busy schedule and translating so many great novels, that not only have an interesting plot, but also such good smut. Thank you.

As of now, there’s not a lot to know about the characters except that, FL did her best to help... more>> her family manage the kingdom, but they sold her like a cow and now she hates them (herself included) and wants to die. <<less

Why did they block all my favourite novels? PLEASE UNLOCK THEM, THEY ARE MY HEAVEN OF ESCAPE FROM THE REALITY. I was really interested in the plot. I love Ishkhan soooo much. He is so considerate. I want to know what will he do next? I want to know what will happen to Leah after being kidnapped.

Not only Predatory Marriage, but also Apollo's Heart, Beauty of the Thebes, I don't want to be loved, all of them are gone, just like that! It is not fair!!!!!

The same was with the... more>> Remarried Empress, but thank goodness, I found the real page of the novel and I am reading on, even with Google translate. AT LEAST GIVE US THE CHANCE TO READ FURTHER ON ORIGINAL WEB. Give us the link!!! <<less

Yay, ML are a sooooo damn hot and more importantly, NOT an a**hole! Big applause to that :D

I'm actually in for the smut, yas the smut are soo gooddddd

And I really like the MC attitude, she's innocence but also not innocent, if ya kno wat I mean, like she

... more>>

Did feeling shy for their first time, but after that she just go with the flow and not being overly too shy. And she doesn't trying REALLY HARD to avoid ML after the deed is done (like some annoying novel MC). She just accept the ML kindness while being a bit shy but didn't avoid him. (That's what I like the most about MC)


Enough said, so far,

I love the MC

I also love the ML

I love the plot

I love love love love the smut

So please read it <<less

If you are here only for the smut, then look no further as this is the story for you. Instead, if you want a more interesting story with three dimensional characters and engaging plot, you should skip it. It's a stereotypical story about a delicate damsel in distress who can't help blushing and get flustered when the incredibly hot, a bit savage but sweet inside guy is near. I thought that the premise could be interested, exploring the theme of a depressed woman who wants to die but slowly finds... more>> her will to live again. Clearly I was expecting too much as the situation is quickly resolved thanks to the lucky encounter with the irresistible male lead and the usual romance between a shy woman and hot man ensues. Am I a bit harsh on the novel? Maybe but I wanted more originality or engaging characters who don't fall in the usual generic patterns. <<less

I clicked on this more out of curiosity than because I thought I would like it. But damn I love it. It' so well translated and written. I like that the main wants revenge but what I like even more is her admittance that her family's dismal of her causes her heartbreak and despair. She's not just angry. She's sad and hurt. She's lashing out at those who hurt her. Cutting off the nose to spite the face. Despite how good the smut is (which is not r*pe for once,... more>> thank god) you just feel sad for her. You feel empathy. <<less

If you're still doubting if you should read this, do it! This one is a gem! I don't understand those who gave this a 1 star. Did we read the same thing? This is actually one of the best ones out here on NU. The pacing is good, translation is good, the ML and FL's chemistry is sizzling hot, and the plot is intense. This is top tier and deserves more stars.

The characters seem childish, the smut is just... gross with its descriptions. Uses terms like 'rosebuds' to describe nips among other things, really ruining roses for me I must say. The plot feels like it's only there to get the smut rolling and hardly serves any other purpose. If ignoring the storyline + characters and just taking the smut into account, it's still not done well. The adjectives used are weird for starters and it lacks flow, the way the two main characters got together felt unnatural. I just can't... more>> think of a single positive. If you like flowery language and drawn out coitus scenes, I suppose you may be able to get something out of this - though I can guarantee it ain't gonna be anything special. <<less

Ok, I'm kind of getting fed up with Leah. Yes, I understand that she's in a difficult political position, but she can obviously see that the Kurkans are not 'barbarians' (wow, gotta love racism/xenophobia/etc /s), but people who can actually help her. Rather than trying to 'fend off the Kurkans, ' it would be better to throw a coup (b/c if I was her, there would be no love lost between the other members of the royal family/Byun Gyongbaek and her). The KING OF KURKANS would gladly help her with... more>> that, and it would end in the best way - almost no civilian deaths if she just gets rid of the useless people in the way. Especially, because her end goal is to protect lives and most of the servants seem to like/understand her.

Edit: The website is now not secure, which causes Firefox to not even access it & Chrome to also give lots of warnings prior to accessing it. I hope the translator can fix this!

Edit #2: Ch. 1-68 are now gone - I hope the new uploader will put these up as well! <<less

I feel like the author wrote the s*x scenes first and the plot + characters last.

First, the FL and ML. Their characters are both flatter than an airport landing strip*. FL is literally like any other opinionated shoujo/josei MC. The author had the opportunity to develop her character more when she was talking to the ml. I still don't see the character development other than what was given to me in the summary and first chapter. it's like this is what was going in the author's mind when... more>> developing her character: I don't want to be trophy wife and be married to old man---- (because) -->I don't want to waste my youth----- (because I want to) --->[information n/a] Her not wanting to be a trophy wife of a much older man isn't a personality trait...

The ML's personality https://tvtropes. org/pmwiki/pmwiki. php/Main/TallDarkAndSnarky

And like what other reviews points out, she could have done it with a servant or something. Why risk sneaking to the red light district, where there's drunk and questionable people out? Also, are venereal diseases not a thing in this world? They have s*aves but no mention of STDs/STIs in a red light district... sure ok. Also if I'm not wrong


ML is the king of Kurkans

who was conveniently in the inn she was going to... well ok. Their chemistry is pretty bleh too. The story could be a lot better for a story that's rated 4.7 stars.... <<less

This story peaks my interest

Its like a new start that didn't came from hatred or Love.

For now I really like the ML and the FL. In the beginnning of the storry they gives an aura that they are truly match not like other novels that start from enemy, hatred, arranged, or one sided-love. It's started of interest

I like how they met and the masterr thingy..... And smut hehe

... more>>

although the ML said that they met earlier but the FL forgot (see ch16. I think the FL save him or what just based on the worrds that ML said in ch16



Ch22 and its till interesting.... More more more plssss <<less

I don't know how to express it by words how grateful I am to found this novel. Such interesting story and since its still on early chapters I can't say a lot about the FL and ML but I think they'll become a power couple.

I hope the story will gradually become more interesting and can't wait for how this story will develop.

Big thanks for the translator team for translating this novel ?

I would like to defend this novel as some of the poorer reviews are from people who’ve only read a few chapters.

Ar first, it may seem like the book is written with a whole bunch of cliches, but as you delve deeper into the story, you’ll find that their are connections everywhere and everything was actually planned out very well. The FL and ML both have reasons as to why they act the way they do, and are not as flat as some reviews say.

Highly highly recommend this story! Please... more>> give it a chance and don’t drop it after like 20 chapters. <<less

Story: below average

characters: below average/simple cliche

i have tried to get into this story so many time but every time, I end up dropping because I’m waiting for something to happen.

for the main character to do something other than allow herself to be taken advantage of or used or manipulated.

im sure that there are some redeeming qualities but I can’t get to that point. I don’t waste my time waiting to be ‘captured’ - it’s a sunk cost and not worth it.
