The Predator’s Contract Partner


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

“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

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

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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

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, sexual 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 sexual 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

I really like the story so much but I had to drop it temporarily since the uploader takes time to translate and they do translate other works Which it dose take time to grab a lot of favorite novels but I do suggest that the uploader to focus on each project one by one, it’s been a year since I started reading this work and waiting for uploads and I dropped the manhwa because of the deleted scenes (why pickup a work to adapt if you’re going to make... more>> it r16 plus I had to guy coins to read it on RIDI) and again I really appreciate the uploader hard work and I gave them my support for that <<less

The plot is amazing, the translation is spot on. The story now has 60 chapters, but at some point you have to ask is it worth it? I love this story it’s witty, well done, and the characters are so charming and real. But I don’t know if I have it in me to wait another 7 years (at the speed the updates are going) to finish the novel. So great novel but read at your own risk.

Just like someone else said already - it looks like a mix between Lucia and Predatory Marriage. I liked the first one, but I was a little bit annoyed with a weak FC. I LOVED the second one. And the author took the best parts from both of them and created something that hooked me so hard that I'm waiting for updates despite long waiting times (though recently they were more frequent, as Translator allows people to pay with Ko-Fi to get the updates faster).

The FL is cunning, intelligent and... more>> cold-blooded. The ML seems to already be a tsundere for her. The smut is great, the translation is of high quality as well. The plot is not advanced much so there's still a lot of aspects to be covered (like magic? Time regression? Political schemes?), but so far it all seems to be going to the just right direction <<less
