We’re in a Contract Marriage, But I’ve Imprinted

“We’ll be entering a contract marriage?”

Melissa, an omega and an illegitimate child of the Rosewood County.
Her only family and the only one who was ever on her side—her mother—had passed away.

“…This is not the Count’s funeral hall.”
“I couldn’t be certain because your pheromones were too light, but it’s true. You’re an omega.”

At that point in her life, Melissa was about to become the wife of an old marquis. It was a sacrifice she had to make for the sake of her family.
However, Ian appeared in front of her and gave one final choice that she could make.

“The contract’s main stipulation is very simple. Give birth to an alpha who will become the household’s successor.”

The contract marriage that began as such was like a sweet, sweet melody.
Knowing that one’s life was about to be devoured, but nonetheless addicted to that sweetness—unable to escape.

The story is really well written. The subject of the story is not simply a romance but a dive into psychology. Although at times the MC is frustrating in her cowardice and blindness to how lucky she is compared to others, it really remind me of ptsd after living her whole life in extreme anxiety and stress (not to mention the attempts on her life, all sprinkled with motherhood).

In short, I can't say I loved it from beginning to end, but it's good enough for me to hang on until... more>> the last chapter, knowing full well how it was going to end. <<less

It’s early on into the story so hopefully my rating will rise as it progresses.


I’m usually a fan of the “mean ML” troupe because I enjoy angst and find redemption/regret arcs really interesting but Ian is just extremely irritating and lacks consistency. In a mere 13 chapters he’s done practically nothing yet still somehow earned my resentment, it’s almost impressive. I love a cold ML but he has zero appeal to me. His implied feelings for the side character who’s such a bratty and entitled woman are so strange to... more>> me and seem very out of character for someone who seems to hold even a slight bit of empathy. Don’t even get me started on how he did such a shameful thing to our FL at her mothers funeral!? He’s just so boring and the fact that he has feelings for such an annoying woman that bullied an innocent child yet somehow simultaneously looks down on our FL is so mind boggling to me. <<less

It starts off well, but does not hold up in the end. The author is inconsistent.

This novel has two parts to it. The author gives you a good sense of what the characters are like, their personalities, thoughts, feelings, motivations, strengths and weaknesses, etc. However in the second half, rather than having these characters go through real growth, the author just creates two brand new characters. The main leads in part two are nothing like themselves from part one. Only their names are the same. It's a trainwreck of writing.... more>> The reasons I had for liking the characters in the first place are all gone because they're unrecognizable.

Do not recommend for those who like logic, common sense, and healthy parenting.

Do recommend for those who enjoy angst, woman empowerment, and making men suffer. <<less

I like this novel; liking the angst. Not giving my rate first but the first 4 chapters development and the melancholic narration are very satisfying to me. Thanks translatornim for choosing this Knovel. When is the next update?
