hello everyone, it's the MTL-er here! I gotta say, SCREAMS that was a nice calming sweet fluff story! KYAAAA! I smiled seeing their relationship develop quite naturally---

hey you! Yes you! Did you want a story to read that was just about two calm people's progress in their relationship? No drama! No confusing plot! It's not overly fluffy, but you'll jump on the ship and then let's set sail wheeee! The ending is nice too and makes me happy, ahahah!

i don't usually do this, but I think this time, I do... more>> need to add in a spoiler tag.


the story is mostly of their relationship development after they agree to marry, that's where most of the sweetness is! And yes, I said agree to marry, because he proposed it without romantic feelings, (but does like her) but it's still worth it, no worries! How their relationship progresses afterwards is where the fun part begins, ufufufuf! And also, priscilla's relationship with her in-laws is nice too---


who's the one who gave one star and three stars?! If you didn't do it accidentally, come here and fight me!! Calming sweetness doesn't come by easy these days, why're you giving it a one or three?! Lolol <<less

This story is really disappointing.

Based on all the good reviews, I was expecting a nondramatic, fluffy, and cute read.

Instead, what I got was:

... more>>
  • a submissive MC with a one-sided love for the ML
  • a coldly rational ML that married the MC for convenience's sake

Sure, the one-sided love eventually becomes mutual love, but only the readers know that. The ML never once said he loves the MC to the MC. The readers know that the ML love the MC because we know his thoughts, but in the story, the MC believed that the ML only married her for convenience's sake from beginning to end. There is a crippling problem with communication between the MC and ML. The ML fulfills his duty as a husband/father by being understanding and kind to the MC, but it is never clear if the MC knows that the ML loves her or not.

Even in the scene where the MC flat out tells the ML that she loves him, the ML doesn't tell the MC that he reciprocates her feelings, all he does is have s*x with her. I don't understand how this story can be considered as fluffy and cute when the ML is struggling with communicating between him and the MC throughout the entire story. In fact, it was frustrating to read about how the MC loves the ML, but the ML never says anything. Perhaps actions are worth more than words in this story since the ML is understanding and kind to the MC, but that doesn't cut it. I would have appreciated it if the ML at least clarified to the MC that his intentions towards her isn't only for convenience's sake anymore but because he loves her, yet the ML never said anything directly to the MC. And with how submissive the MC is, she just accepts everything the ML does without trying to talk it out. This story is exasperating.



This story is all about how actions are worth more than words. But too much action, leads to a lack of words. Because of this, the romantic development between the MC and ML fail as they lack communication. It feels like from beginning to end, the MC never really gets an answer from the ML on whether he loves her or not. <<less

The only reason a person would not rate this 5 stars would be because they are looking for a shoujo, expect an overbearing ML or want some action/drama.

Nice slow romance with a little fluff but mainly calming and soothing love story. Would recommend to anyone who wants to read a calming slice of life novel.

Okay. OKAY. This deserves not just 1 star. I am actually quite upset someone reviewed it badly and saying how it's too much actions, not much words, and how both leads lack communication and verbally not saying I love you to each other. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions though. And here's mine:

Sometimes, actions show a lot more than just words. I would agree that it may seem shallow that they don't eventually verbally profess their loves for each other, but honestly, the relationship growth between the 2 leads... more>> already show that much, without even having it to be put into words. The story telling here doesn't just spoon feed us readers with words that they love each other, but rather, by telling us their actions mutually show love for each other. There are different language of love, so the fact that there is not any confirmed "I love you"s, that does not mean they don't love each other enough for their ending relationship to be justified. (Sorry for rambling)

ANYHOWWWW, I wouldn't say I'm an avid novel reader but many times, novels that are still ongoing, even if I follow them, I don't think I anticipate the updates as much as I do for this one (and very few others). I was sooo sooo glad when Momo decided to pick this one up to translate. Not all heroes wear capes indeed. I would also like to thank CrappyAss and Hasr11 for starting to translate this story at the beginning, because otherwise, this story wouldn't be out there for me to read in the first place.

And I need to reiterate, this is full of fluff, endearing moments, NON PROBLEMATIC people (questionable how the ML parents kinda treat or nurture ML but they remind me of my parents in general. Those Asian blood man hahah and they treat FL with respect like hellooo when was the last time I read romance josei/shoujo novel with in laws being decent human beings?). The FL, Priscilla, is seriously GOALS, and she reminds me so much of Tohru from Fruits Basket. And I like that this story is short and sweet. Authors don't drag over s*upid dramas/conflicts. Definitely something I can binge-read now over and over when I'm bored. Rarely that I go out my way to review for the good stuff I read unless it's really really good and warrant the effort from me. And this novel is one of them.

Thank you translators. I wish I can read more of the Lucott Kingdom series too following this one! I will be looking forward to it for sureeee. LOVE Y'ALL, PEACE! <<less

Ok so where do I start...

I started reading this because of the high rating and the summary looks interesting. And the beginning started relatively well to me.

Halfway through and I had second thoughts because this was not going to what I have expected. I scrolled through the reviews and I'm actually relieved someone posted a 1 star review! I was just looking for a nice decent romance story where MC and ML are mature and how their story unfolds. And as you can see that's not what I got.

So for... more>> the sake of world peace and no more heartaches read first BillionJelly's review and if it still didn't dissuade you into not reading this novel then let me add on how this is not for those who want real FLUFF, not that fake cheap fluff they sell in sidewalks (like this one apparently)

Spoilers ahead:

MC is pitiable in the beginning of her marriage tbh, because aside from her husband marrying her for her hands so he can have good sleep, she's already fallen for him while he just cares for her and I don't think he's in love with her just yet. And it also didn't help how he would have proceeded to have s*x while he hadn't even kissed her yet (if MC didn't asked for it) ! Do I need to mention this is half a month into their marriage? Yeah I get it you married for convenience but bro you treated your wife like some bed pillow who just happen to treat your fatigue and headache. Shame on you ML! Also the fact ML made MC feel as if she's not attractive and whatsoever within that time as no contact happened between them aside from a hug. A HUG!!! Does that sound like a good male lead to you? And this is halfway chapter 14. There's only 18 chapters and from the spoiler I got, it wouldn't become better, so why bother?

Truthfully the smut could've been gone and I'd be grateful for it. This is the kind of story where I'd prefer for the romance to slowly unfold and not read chapters where smut happens. Eh there's 'splashing' here and there too and I can't help but think of the pool, really.

Seriously sometimes I can't help but question where do these people see the fluff or am I just blind. It's like they automatically label 'fluff' to everything when in reality it isn't.

Tl;dr: I'm looking for some decent romance story and this is not it. <<less

whilst the concept was cute I hate:

... more>>

icb the mother of the ML thought that her leaving her job which was considered a good job an "of-course-you-should" thing and the guy didn't say anything?? I thought MC liked and enjoyed her job?? MC also didn't try to keep her job.......... she's just going to be a house wife and a f*cking pillow for him, or like a welcome mat that makes one feel welcomed whenever they step in the house or smth. a doormat would be a good description of MC in my as honest as possible opinion tbh.


i might be wrong as it's been a long while since I read this novel, but I found it again in my 'already read' list and it strike me in the nerve somewhere... I just /had/ to write my thoughts on it <<less

This was a relaxing and easy read. There was no drama, just a satisfying plot flow with no antagonists or anything bad. While there wasn't much character development, at least the ML eventually learned to treasure the FL instead of just appreciating the convenience of her hands.

I would recommend this to those who need a break from all the overly long, drama-filled novels.

This is such warm, fluffy, cute, and hot novel with no unnecessary drama. It's a light read perfect for those who just want to satisfy their sugar cravings. The main characters character don't have any issues so they won't make you kill them too. I wish someone would pick this up since I only MTLd 5-18 and it caused me a giant headache.

Honestly I don't get why people rated this a one?? Like I understand it has some faults, its not a perfect novel but its actually really good?? The characters are solid and consistent, the plot is well written, we have some great fluff and fan service +++ it's super relaxing to read. The writing and translations are easy to follow albeit lengthy at times, but it gives it a beautiful and elegant feel to it. 10/10 would want a sequel

Current rating: 3/5

Reviewed after only 9 chapters. (Will probably update if finished.)

So far, this is one of those pleasant, simple Japanese stories that don't shatter the world in terms of writing but can be nice to read if one is in the mood. I think you will like this if you are just looking for a not-too-complicated story of a woman and man gradually falling in love without all sorts of MarySueness and ridiculous drama (so far).

If you've come to want something more from your stories, based on what... more>> I've read so far, you probably won't find it here. As I said, the writing is very simple (although it hasn't quite strayed into simplistic, as some Japanese novels of this style tend to) and, so far, the plot is quite simple. If you're like me and you're wanting a female MC with lots of agency and without the well-worn set-up of noble heirarchies or marriage being the primary focus, this novel tries and yet completely fails to deliver. So far, despite the author's efforts to present something different (in terms of a somewhat more progressive society and a female MC with a career), we still in the end have a story about a handsome, intelligent, capable, highly-ranked (in position and lineage) ML with an average, modest and overly-obedient MC. It's not that this style of Japanese story can't be entertaining or worth reading, I'm just, personally, quite tired of these same old themes that don't fit with my modern, Western and personal values about women and society - and, so far, this one isn't offering anything different enough in terms of plot or writing.

I would recommend this as a nice, simple and pleasant romance story for those who like or are in the mood for that. <<less

Fluffy cute story❤️

The first time I started reading, I paused after the first chapter because it was too wordy and quite slow.
But I’m glad I picked it up again!😊

The story accelerates it’s pace after the third chapter or so.

... more>> the ending is wholesome and complete ❤️

Honestly, I like both the ML who is calm and rational, and the FL who’s mature and sweet.
Their bond strengthens slowly, and even though the ML doesn’t explicitly say that he loves her, it was implied in the story that she will be the only one who hears these words in the futur.

I think that the FL knows and feels her husband’s feelings towards her, so the reviews which depict her as pitiful and used aren’t really accurate.

I don’t understand why some rate stories 1 star after saying they somewhat liked it but only ONE point annoyed them 😐 <<less

Not really that fluffy. Idk why everyone is hype-ing this so much. It was a decent and relaxing read, I can't even say it's romantic. I get it that the setting is medieval so relationships would be quite conservative but it was proved wrong that everyone is actually open minded as what the author implied, so I was at least expecting the ML to be decent to the FL. Their interactions before marriage couldve been made into flirting but it was just meh. Anyway it ended HE, so ranting is... more>> useless. <<less

What a sweet and heartwarming story. I can't have enough of it. It has a simple plot and there are no conflicts or misunderstandings but it's still enjoyable. It has a sm*t tag but it doesn't only focus on the s*x scene, rather it also has deep story and characters.

FL is not extremely beutiful but rather she has a simple look and body. She has a kind heart and a pair of soothing hands. Although she's quite plain and a bit timid, I still love her character. ML is a... more>> workaholic who always has a rational mind. He's not a romantic type and he married FL for his own convenient but he slowly realizes that he loves FL in his own way. It's refreshing to have such ML who is different from other ML in similar novel. <<less

A woman who has a magic hand. Cannot cure but somehow can dispel the pain. Come a man who work so hard that he almost drop death. Prefect match!

A calming and a bit of fluff romance between two calm people. No unnecessary drama and no confusing plot. I smiled reading how their relationship develop naturally ?

The writing and translation are easy to follow albeit a bit lengthy. Really recommend for a short read.

This is one of the cutest stories I've ever read. There isn't any over-the-top/unnecessary drama, actually there is no drama AT ALL. It's a very light read with a good couple and towards the end there is some good smut.

Since fan translation is currently at ch. 12 I MTL'd rest of the chapters. It was... ok. I've just a mild headache. Reading the smut chapters like that was... interesting :D

So why 4 stars? I dunno, I feel like it could have been better and we needed a few more chapters.... more>> I feel like the side characters could have been developed more and I wish we've seen ML and FL interact more.

I highly recommend it if you want a fluffy-light read. <<less

Decent story. I only rated it 3 bec of too much unnecessary paragraphs and redundant points. It's dragging and tedious to read with too many paragraphs in between dialogues and scenes get dragged from point A to point B bec the author narrates too much which could have been easily summarized and shown through actions rather than directly telling it.

Like I don't need a reminder that the ML is the busiest future prime minister every single time and how considerate and kind the FL is despite being ordinary and plain.... more>> No need to reiterate stuff that's already been established in the beginning.

Reading the story literally feels like inside someone's head. It takes many many looong chapters before the main characters meet and interact. Their development as a couple only happens at the last couple of chapters.

The writing voice ruined it for me. The story felt like it could have been summarized in less than 10 chapters or so. Despite the long chapters there's not actual development between the main characters relationship tbh. Would have rated it 4 if it weren't for this. <<less

This is a must read book which is addicting. The plot is simple and interesting, no angst. But sometimes it makes your mind go haywire thinking what's gonna happen next.

The FL is a very decent character unlike many other novels. She is the best FL you could wish for. Although she is young, she is a very logical, down to earth woman. She acts very calm in many situations. The ML is a super loving character who is very kind and devoted to his wife. Smut scenes... more>> were all consensual which were sweet. He treats his wife like a treasure. Their marriage in convenience turns out to be a happy and lovely one in the end.

The chapters are long, I wished they were longer because I couldn't get enough. Novel ends with a perfect happy ending. I'd probably read this again.

Just go for it. Read this without second thoughts. <<less

I MTL this last year and was very happy to find it's been fully translated in english.

This is a sweet story, it doesn't feel like a typical japanese web novel (this is a positive thing for me, lol). The relationship progression is very believable if we're talking about marriage of convenience setting. No love at first sight, MC with common sense appropriate of the era, no unnecesary dramas and childish love rival, just a nice short read.

Might be more suitable for older ladies viewer that enjoy simple laid back romance.... more>> If you want steamy palace drama, you might want to skip. But for this old girl here, this story is a 5 star, yup. <<less

Short but sweet. Two practical people who married for practical reasons and started to learn to love from then on. Some people might find it vanilla without too many fluctuating obstacles but I thought it was just nice.

There's more to love language than just words of affirmation alone. It feels more in character for them too. Sometimes words are not necessary even. There are different types of dynamics between two people that show their love in different ways. Saying 'I love you' is not a solid requirement and sometimes I... more>> feel it's overused. It's nice to hear when it is meant but not everyone is that expressive and some like myself, feel that actions hold more meaning than words. I don't think it warrants a 1 star just because that phrase isn't said though. <<less
