The Predator’s Contract Partner

“You shouldn’t have crossed this line, Elisha, if you didn’t want it to be like this.”

A sturdy arm wrapped around her swaying body. Her head became hazy and an intentional hot sweet sigh was pulled out of her.

‘How the hell did I get myself in this situation—’

Elisha recalled. This never happened before.

‘Yeah, I remember.’

Her future in which she would become the fake concubine to a demonic man from the same family, and would be eaten to death—even down to her bone marrow. A future in which the Cartier ducal family is embroiled in a power struggle and fragmented.

To avoid that future, Elisha threw herself at Lucerne, the archrival of her former life.

Yeah. There was no problem. She knew this man, before and after her regression. She already knew he was the most notorious maniac in the Empire.

20-year-old Elisha owes 30,000 gold coins (about 15 billion won in Korean currency or around 15 million in USD).

After going back in time, in order to avoid a hellish life because of debt, she becomes the most capable illegitimate child in the world and visits Lucerne, the archenemy of her master.

“What do you want from me?”

“Please lend me some money. And… make me your subordinate. I’ll give you all the information I have.”

“Why should I trust you?”

“I’ll give myself up as collateral.”

Lucerne listened to Elisha and watched her quietly.

“Okay. But I decide how to deal with the collateral.”


“First of all, marry me.”

“…… huh?”

Elisha didn’t expect it either. That her information transaction would become a marriage contract.

It's a fun story and I'd love to know what happens next but what's the point... the translations are being released ONCE A MONTH and there are 220 chapters. I will literally be a decade older by the time this group finishes, if they continue till then

Edit 22/01/03: Yesss the next one it is.. chapter 36 I am waiting for you :D

Edit 21/12/24: Wohoo now there's only one chapter left when the sm*t's finally incoming (⌒ω⌒)

21/05/30: As much as I like the translation an the story as frustrating is the update schedule. I do understand that the translator does have a life and I love her for showing me these incredibly juicy stories she's translating. I swear I reaaally am thankful for all her hard work! But it is so slow that there really is... more>> no point in reading. Even as a patreon... you get 9 (half) chapters more than public readers (most expensive tier). But that's it. If there's only one new chapter each month, only one gets public. I started to read it on my own with my little korean skills just because I wanted to get to the fun part sooner. And I can tell that there are many more chapters to wait for until they really get down to it.

Maybe the translator just has too many novels she wants to translate. And she does round about 32 chapters each month. Respect for all her hard work! But it still is too slow for my patience. Either read it for yourself or drop it. And if you have got enough patience, than you do will have fun with this translation. <<less

For those who have read Lucia it has almost similar plot style.

MC who got exposed to her future and ending but given a chance to redo her life. Now she put up all her courage to ask for for somoene to take her as his ally against someone she despise but instead was offered by male lead a marriage whose in need of tittle to get nobility.

Fun and interesting to read. Btw has finally had its comic adaptation. Yayy!

Nwayss thanks for good quality translations.

The story is good. Well translated. Political turmoil and smut. I read the spoilers about this novel. It certainly is a good one.

BUT, as the other user pointed out... WHATS THE POINT!!

(╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

The story gets me hooked but the speed of chapters is slower than a turtle. Its annoying. Period. And this annoyance gets me off the hook. I had dropped this novel3months ago. And I returned just to see... 5 chaps. JUST 5 chaps. And I have noticed that this group is slow in translations, not only this... more>> one but ALL of their projects are at the pace of a turtle. Understandable, since they also have personal lives.

Therefore, for my own sanity and peace from frustration, I am dropping this. Might return 5-6 years later (ب_ب). I hope that by then, there will atleast be 72~ chaps or something.

4stars for good translation and excellent novel plot. The tension between the leads is evident. Minus one star for the 1chap/month scheme. <<less

I loved this novel that I couldn't wait for the translator so I went and pay for the raw. Besides the steamy smutty stuff the story is written so well that you get so emotionally involved in this. The ending is such a twist which satisfy the reader.

Worth to read!

What I didn't like:

... more>>

I wasn't too thrill or turned on during a part where he held her captive, it was like Stockholm syndrome and r*pey. He is obsessive, possessive and jealous those stuff you have to make sure you dont romanticize those traits in real life.

This has the perfect balance of smut and plot.

I love MCs personality! She thinks in her head very similar to how I think, so I relate to her well.

Actually, this story is surprisingly wholesome despite the premise seeming like a sadomasochistic setting. The ML is very tender with her from the moment they meet. He gives off bad boy vibes but treats her like a princess. He's just a bit controlling and I feel there's zero chance he'll stick to the deal and let her go.

The side characters are all... more>> fun, tho the villains are nothing special. Mostly it's the structural power they have that makes them formidable, rather than their own skills and abilities.

Definitely a good read! <<less

this story is really good and the main characters' designs are so attractive I'm sure this novel will get more recognized just if the releasing frequency increases, this novel is already completed long ago with 220 chapters, it had been almost two years since the translation began but we are yet to reach 1/4 of the story! At this rate it will end only after 6 years💔

dear translator, I really appreciate your hard work and perfect translation but please try to update more frequently🙏🏻 at least one chapter per week🤍

edit:... more>> I can't but edit my review because the updating has improved a lot!! Dear translator pls know that I really appreciate your hard work <3 keep going💖💖💖 <<less

Storyline is like Lucia but with a plot and FL that make sense. I really like how smart the FL is and how determined she is to change her future after her original horrible demise. Her situation is heartbreaking and it makes complete sense that she reached out to the ML in desperation, but I love how she keeps her wits about her, even though she is scared, to make a deal that is sensible and benefits both of them.

The ML is so sexy and I can't wait for the... more>> smut!! Already the tension between the FL and ML is sooo hot!

Also, huge shout out to the translation team! They do an awesome job. <<less

At its heart, this is the story of a woman who doesn't realize she is the chosen saintess sent by god to rout out corruption and set the country back on the good path once more.

To aid her, she has the ML, a hyper powered man slavishly devoted and willing to burn the world down if she wants. He is likewise unaware of his role as her destined tool and guard dog, the "predator" set to protect her.

Their lack of awareness about their status is actually a very refreshing twist.... more>> Normally, such characters are handed so much fore- knowledge that they do nothing except show up to mouth the lines written for them.

Here instead, we have a ML who is in DEEP denial that if his wife says jump, he will ask how high. He is convinced of his power and superiority in the relationship, even as he carefully selects presents for his wife. He tells himself it's just s*x and then gets pouty jealous when she talks to others. He wades into politics and the family competition he has zero interest in and says he's doing it because he wants to, not because he wants to protect his wife and put her on the highest throne he can reach. This boy is whipped and has no clue.

As for our MC, she has no idea that her actions are slowly, but surely, reforming the country. She thinks she is merely being helpful to her husband and avoiding a terrible fate she dreamed about. She is clever and ingenious, and uses her knowledge to make informed, unique decisions, reacting to the ever-changing situation. She doesn't know everything, which I love, and is still required to work hard and use her brain to make things happen.

As a result, this feels a bit more natural and organic as the story unfolds. Like the characters, we're not quite sure how things will go, rather than most stories where we were told the entire plot from the start.

Be warned that there is a lot of s*x. Imagine all those other web novels with an obsessive guard dog type ML, and then imagine if the ban on sleeping with the FL was lifted: they go at it like jackrabbits everywhere. I didn't find the s*x very sexy, as the graphic descriptions are on the technical side for bluntness and the couple likes dirty talk, but maybe it'll float your boat. <<less

I just binge read this novel after reading the first 12 chapters of the manwha. This is my first actual novel reading and I'm glad this was chosen. The translations of this novel is well done and fills in a lot of the missing gaps in the manwha.

Even though it's completed with 220 chapters and we are on chapter 35, I highly recommend this novel reading. So even if the manwha is ahead, I'll still be reading the novels translation. It's well written and very detailed. Thank you so much!

Enjoying this so far-- there's plenty of smut to read, and at no point is it non con thus far.

The s*x between them is steamy and fun, the translation is great, and there's intrigue and fun plotting--Refreshing that this is a time travel type story but it's not all focused on how FL can use her existing knowledge of events to influence those events. While that genre of story is fun, she DOESN'T know what will happen next, can only act in her (and ML's) best interest while anticipating reactions.

FL... more>> has a lot of unfortunate history with the antagonists and so KNOWS them, and uses more of her knowledge of what they're like and what sort of malicious plots they've done in the past to make sure that she's coming out ahead even as she's changed the timeline.

I guess mild spoiler for something in like the first 5 chapters


Her very impulse driven plot in the first place is to make a deal that has her as ML's subordinate and is completely taken by surprise by the wife plot she gets thrown into-- luckily she thinks he's hot and has no problem with having s*x with him and is pretty happy with how things turn out, but this means that things are inherently different from the get go


It's nice that both ML and FL are intelligent, and they both appreciate each other for their intelligence, foresight, and s*x appeal and consider it a mutually beneficial agreement... and while no frustrating miscommunication as you may find in some stories (yet, I hope not at all) it's interesting seeing them dance around the conversations on what comes AFTER given they have both got some significant emotional scarring that makes it hard to trust.

100 % recommended, I picked this back up again from stopping at probably chapter 30 when it was first updating, and still really enjoyed re-reading andthen reading up to now, which is at ch187. <<less

I like how the author portrayed the FL, she's is smart not because it was given but because she learned from her past. That's what made her cunning and smart.

With the ML—I am still contemplating with his character. One thing for sure he is good at giving mixed signals.

Although there are some loopholes, it's bearable.

The plot is good, but this is the first time I find the smut boring and annoying. It was exciting to read in the beginning but then it became too often and repetitive. In the end, it's nothing more than just a filler which increases the number of chapters and hinders the progress of the story itself. After 100ish chapters, I simply skip the smut and focus on the plot only. Btw, the translator split some chapters into two, so it will be more than 220 chapters after it's fully... more>> translated. <<less

TLDR: It is a good novel. That being said people with triggers (eg. Mental abuse, physical abuse, torture, etc.) should be warned that there is triggering material in this novel. They are central to the plot line. Smut and plot are well balanced.

Trigger Warnings: Physical abuse, mental abuse, s*xual abuse (?- I am not 100% sure about that but there are mentions of it), torture, child abuse, trauma.

Healthy Relationship of Main Characters (in my opinion) : Initially, their relationship is not the healthiest thing. It almost edges into dubious consent... more>> but does not cross the line. However, they do have a communicative relationship. They respect each other. It doesn’t make a point to have affirmative s*xual consent (eg. Can I do _?) from what I remember.

Storyline: It is an intricate storyline. There is some world building. Characters are complex, not just the main characters. The antagonists are not 2 dimensional. They have history and motivation for their actions. <<less

This is a very interesting story, it is not like anything I have read before.

I really like it. Of course, I have read novels that are far better translation wise and in the usage of words nevertheless, the translation is good, the plot of the story and the characters are quite interesting.

The more I read, the more I am drawn into the novel and the female lead. I really like her character, it's like a breath of fresh air.

Sometimes, it feels as if the scenes doesn't make sense and it's... more>> quite unrealistic at times but since it's a novel, it can be overlooked.

The smut and translation is brilliant. Looking forward to the updates, thank you for your hard work. <<less

TOP TIER STORY OF NU. Just want to say. Worth it. All of you who stopped reading, got tired, or whatever else happened. PLEASE FINISH THE NOVEL IT'S SOOOO WORTH IT 😭😭😭

I LOVED IT. I LOVED ELISHA. She endured sooo much and still persevered through it all. Even oitwitted Lucierne AHHHH MY GIRL.

AND LUCIERNE IS CRAZY BUT LOVEEE HIM. And man's really got it priorities straight 😭😂😂 Feeds her after ever papapa XDDD.

I lived their dynamic a lot. At first it showed how scary this was was, and I loved... more>> how Elisha was soso scared of him but stood her ground. One time she got so scared she fainted and Lucierne just rubbed her cheeks and consoled her and be like Have I ever gotten angry infront of you why are so scared and my heart😭🫠aaaahhhhhhhhh. And he was like first I gotta do something about that😭😭❤️

It's so much more than just a smut novel. Smut is good too bu*t the plot is chef's kiss. The ending was especially beautiful. Couldn't even imagine. Their past life is so sad, so haunted. It literally couldn't get any sadder. But I'm just glad they found happiness in this life. I want more fluff ughhh😭😭😭And the revenge. Ugh. They got away too easy. Each and everyone one of them should have been imprisoned, kept alive, poisoned, skinned alive istg how can they be so selfish and evil.

Anyways definitely worth the 200+ chapters... I read whole thing in 3 days. Thanks translator for translating this I LOVE YOU FOR NOT GIVING UP HALFWAY😭🙏 I've never read any ny novels more than a 100 chapters but this one I couldn't stop. After chap 231 here I had to go mtl it cause so so good can't stop. Btw the chapter numbers are kinda messed up ig chap231 here is around 156 in the real novel I think.

Smut: ⭐⭐⭐⭐🔥
