The Villainess Captured The Grand Duke


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

My favorite novel character died.

After being abandoned by the heroine, he lost his emotions and could no longer use his abilities. While he was weakened, the North collapsed. The novel depicts a happily ever after for the main characters, without even bothering to confirm the location of his body.

I’ve possessed the villainess, Scheuer, and decided that I’d rather he gets his emotions back before meeting the heroine, so I headed North.

“Duke, would you hold my hand? Or perhaps give me an autograph. I promise to keep it as an heirloom.”

“If you want my autograph, then the Lady should also sign here.”

“What’s this?”

“A marriage registration form.”


“Just like right now… the Lady’s behavior makes me feel nervous.”

…Do I possibly have a chance?

Heeding the warning from other reviews, I skipped SLTL version and jumped straight into MTL.

I came across the novel description by chance, I thought that it looked interesting and felt that it would be a nice fluffy cute healing romance, and boy was I right. When I first started reading this, my hands itch to pick up the phone and call the police but after some time I can't help but smile at the MC's antics. I cheer so hard whenever the MC manages to fish out the ML's emotions.... more>> She is such an endearing girl, I can't help but like her. I envy her passion and dedication to freely show her love.

This is an MC chasing the ML trope story and it feels so fresh in the way that MC pursues ML so relentlessly. Of course, it's the typical ice block ML but it had a reasonable narrative that controls the flow of the story. Again this is a piece of fiction that has aligned the circumstances of both MC and ML to fit the trope well so I begrudgingly only left the police on speed dial.

MC is such a die-hard fan of ML, she basically worships him. Any normal person would be disturbed by such a character and rightfully so it affected the ML who was desperate to feel any kind of emotions so that he could wield his family's swordsmanship again. So he let her stay by his side grasping at the unnerving/annoyed feeling she evoked in him. This of course turns into affection in the long run through repeated exposure. It may sound like the MC has water in the brain where all she can think about is the ML but she actually has the ability to chase him! Like gurl yass I stan a baddie proactive girlie that uses her resources smartly and knows how to defend herself and her beliefs.

Although the wholesome romance takes center stage, the conflict that I first viewed as mere background was crazy. It has that wild family/imperial drama and I am just chewing through the melon seeds excitedly. The hints were deliciously sprinkled, maybe too much because I managed to guess the many twists and turns of the plot but then again I also already have read a lot of novels. Anyway, the drama didn't overshadow the romance at all, instead, it managed to enhance it, especially in the later stage where everything was just exploding left and right.

Overall, it was a well-executed warm feel-good story where the love was organically grown and their relationship was tested in various stages. Though I still crave some sort of epilogue, I'd have to say that it was a good read. <<less

It's honestly good. I'll say that, but the Salmon Latte translation is confusing as hell. Even more confusing than the normal bunch of novels that get translated.

The story is good it's just the really bad translation that makes it borderline unreadable. I don't even know what gender or age one of side characters is because the pronouns were switched so many times it's easier to guess by rolling a dice at this point.

This is my initial review so far since the chs are few. I personally think that the pacing is fast and the narrative was kind of dissonant and awkward — like the author cannot decide which timeline to introduce first so instead, she cut off the current narrative just to introduce the typical isekaid fML backstory.

The fML so far is vivacious, a die-hard fan of ml, and immature (imo). FML is young so I feel she tends to do things whatever her feelings tells her to do and I don't... more>> expect her that much to THINK things thoroughly, which leaves a room for her growth in the future chs (cross-fringers). While the ML is almost like a living doll because of his cold expressionless face and non-existent emotions, but there's actually a reason why his condition is like that.

All in all, it's okay-ish and seems promising since the ML hadn't done anything dislikeable. <<less

The story is good and funny, but it has a bad translation. I wanted to give it a chance despite that, it really took the fun out of the story. It's a pity.

This story is one of my favorite, the MC is funny, brave, bold and lovable. This story belongs to the female chasing the male lead (kind of) and I love it. I hope the translator will not stop translating this gem, because its one of the story that I really like to read.

Funny so far! Hoping there's more updates to come, FL is a total fangirl over ML whose stone-faced, can't help but think the antics are only going to get funnier from here. :D
