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.

I love the chemistry between the ML & FL. FL has a strong mind and strength of personality yet under the constant bereavement of love and compassion from her own family and people, she, it truly seems to me, was suffering from depression that ultimately has driven her to implement the drastic decision to end her own life. Instead of choosing a new path that may lead her to live a harmonious & peaceful, if not meaningful life, she wants to give up altogether and chose death instead. Her very... more>> soul seems too ridden with burden of fruitless devotion to her family and responsibilities while her melancholic lonely heart has lost all hope. I truly Hope the Beastly Animalistic ML could save her not only from the world but from her own self as well under his captivity, ahem, I mean protection that is !! <<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 rape, 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!

Only 6 chapters yet but already like the female lead I like her determination for revenge against her family for selling her to a powerful old man for power and favour but she mistakenly chose a wrong person (ml) for one night stand now interesting point why ML want to kidnapped and ruined her life when she was on her way for the marriage and though they share only one night.

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

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'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.

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

This is suuuch bullsh*t I can't believe it's rated 4, 7.

Logic died tragically on every turn of this story, I say, if you have no brain, don't right novels! An author should have at least some basic reason, no?

And I feel somewhat aggrieved about the translators' wasted time and effort on something like this. There are so many good untranslated or dropped stories for you guys...

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 developing... more>> 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

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

Originally, I read this for the smut. But the plot is actually really good! As other reviews already tell of what happens in the translated chapters, I’m not even gonna go into detail xD

The smut is alright, not high-quality, but not low-quality either. It’s kinda above average-ish (?) for Korean smut novels.

5/5... deserving of its rating... currently. Hopefully it doesn’t go downhill o3o

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

Honestly, if you want to read this for the smut, don't bother. It's worded like someone is trying to check boxes with metaphors and analogies for genitals and arousal, and the poorly-placed censorship just makes it read like something ridiculous, so you can't even get into it. The only reason I've made it this far is because I want to know what happens next. And you know the smut is bad when you're no longer wondering when the next s*x scene is, but what will happen next, plot-wise.

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 💜

been reading this, and im so confused by the heroine's suicidal plan of revenge. like yr goal is to have yr family fall into ruin and imo the easiest and freeing way to achieve that would be is to finally liberate herself from her family.

But her overall plan is to force herself to lose her virginity and when the time comes when her fiancee finds out during their wedding night that she's not actually virgin he's going to flip and will sever his support to the royal family and then... more>> she commits suicide.... like thats so moronic??? Reading into her character, she despises her fiancee (cos he's a pig) but then she's still willing to endure sleeping w him in their wedding night for what?? for the s*upid plan? and she hates her abusive family so much but she still keeps following their orders and rigorously doing her princess duties to the point of almost fainting due to exhaustion when she could jus say f*ck it and escape the palace and her wedding gets ruined and her idiotic fiancee gets angry to the royal family for the disrespect and then the royal family is then doomed 4ever.

also the family cant survive without her anyway cos she's the only one doing any work <<less
