When The Count’s Illegitimate Daughter Gets Married


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

“Dirty wench! You stole my necklace!”

“Unless I knew where your necklace was, I wouldn’t have been able to take it.”

As an illegitimate child, Laritte’s biggest sin was being born.

In the year she became an adult, she was sent to marry the ghost duke who was rumored to be dead. Her miserable life seemed to get worse and worse, however…

Her life changed when the duke came back alive.

“Madam, how do you like it?”

Kind servants,

“You have enough luxury to buy some residences in the capital.”

“…no one will be able to look down on you anymore.”

And the empire’s devoted and mu*derous duke.

It was already too late for those who tormented Laritte to regret it.

In my opinion, it was a wonderful novel. The first half was definitely better than the second, but the second half helped you understand the smaller details of the story better. It started off light-hearted and fluffy and becomes a bit dark in the middle but goes back to being light and fluffy afterwards. It goes from drama (not too heavy drama) to a slice of life novel for 20-30 chapters before treading back to light drama.

The male lead isn't overbearing or cruel, but he's rather cute. The female lead... more>> was a unique character, definitely one of my favourite characters out of all the novels I've read. Obviously, their cat is 10/10 best character <<less

I love this novel, it is very light and more of a slice of life, it doesnt delve too deeply on any plot device but it does have a little bit of everything in terms of cliche. The previous translator made it very clear what type of novel and plot this had, so definitely read his/her last chapter if you dont think you want to invest too much time on this story. But personally I like it. Also, I don't think it's fair to judge the quality of the translation,... more>> most of these novels are translated with no compensation, if you think you can translate and edit any better than go ahead and offer your help to the current translators but complaints could discourage the translators and motivate them to drop this story. The translations--to me--have been understandable. <<less

Almost comically bad, but mostly mediocre. Poorly edited MTL makes a badly paced and ill-conceived storyline go down even worse.

Mostly fluff paired with a half-baked attempt at political intrigue. A couple that struggles with basic communication — they talk to each other, but rarely share their thoughts with each other.

Give it a shot if you want, but be warned that even the two stars I've given it here is generous.

Someone please pick up this series ??

The translator recently just dropped this project because it's not their cup of tea and I'm not complaining. Everybody have different taste and preferences after all.

But I really looking up of how this story gonna progressing. I guess it's a slowburn type novel and I think it's good~~~

If only I could understand korean well, I might've been translated it bcos MTLing is sucks, sometimes you dont get the point of the sentences at all or the translator app just give you nonsense translation :... more>> (

Whoever gonna picking up this novel, I'm rooting on you, i'll be your #1 supporter ❤️ <<less

I have to say, this novel is LIT... for people who wants to enjoy some light reading.

Because I saw a bunch of comments about this novel, I.. kinda... want to try too. So first, the reason I read this, of course bc of the manwha. I get so curious ... more>>
about what happend to FL after the kidnapping, and how the ML responded, and I can say, it's satisfying to read this part

But, everyone has it's kind of tea that they like. But this novel is my cup of the. Light and the plot is easy to guess so I'm not really gonna get depressed when reading (but still careful, there is some part that stings like an onion^^) still I'm gonna give review that I hope will help you all choosing if this novel worth of your time or not.

PLOT : as I already said, this novel is not the deep novels that had so many spice. This one is light and healing? Easy to digest. No inner conflict, the villains are clear since the beginning of the story. considering the chapter isn't that much.

VIBES : I definitely gonna say, it's mellow yet there's a lil bit of comedy. About the romance, I'm sure it's not the diabetic one. Until the recent chapter that I read, the most intimate FL and ML is (find in the manwha ch 18) thats it. Still I like it, and the whole thing is make sense for me
In the early 60 untill recent ch, ML always denied his overprotective behavior to the FL as love but just a gratitude. It is make sense, people. You can take a look at ML background, how they interact, and the situation plus ML's personalities. And I personally like this slow burn. Because bonding take times not just a few months together the BOOMS...a happy couple is created. Well, sometimes situation can make it faster, especially live and death situations. But still, I love how the author take time to explore more about the feelings of FL and ML even though we as the reader can see the seed of love growing.

CHARA DEVELOPMENT: I can't say much in here. Bc once again this is novel plot is simple and light. But one thing I do agree with the other comments is FL character specialty is being beautiful as a goddess (TuT) and a "unique" trait plus kindness that didn't really help. Yes she is the one who sacrifice so many when helping the ML in the earlier arc, but that's it. FL doesn't have further development. To be honest I don't really like how ignorant she is🥲 come on, she officially became the duchess but doesn't learn etiquette and do her job and act like an actuall lord, she looks more like a doll that everyone take care with extra delicatecare. Yes she's not in a top notch condition, but still... (you all gonna understand if read it your self in ch 35 -71)

But I can tolerate it because she's cute for me and it's just a story🤣🤭 for my bias character in here are Nanny and the crown prince.

Okay that's it. Hopefully this will help you all <<less

Well, this is just boring. I’ve tried to read up to the last updated chapters, but I’m not interested I’m not intrigued. This story is kinda weak, moreover the translation is not the best.
Yes it’s sweet in some sense, and maybe interesting up to 30th chapters but that’s it.

In a day I won’t even remember that such a story exists.

I feel like the author lost their way after a while. The antagonist's end was too quick and simple. The main threat kept changing. The dragons were in and out of the scene to complete their purposes, it felt so mechanic. But the MAIN REASON I'm cutting a star is because of the ML leaving FL without explaining sh*t to her. Brother. She won't get hurt by you talking to her for 5 more sentences.

After a certain point, the book lost its common sense, only dating by the rules of... more>> a ridiculous book, allowing her og mother to the mansion. Doesn't make the slightest sense.

After her mother appeared, the story dropped 3 more stars. The annoying misunderstanding was too much.
The writing degraded so much that I didn't want to continue anymore. I think 98 chapters is enough, I'm not going to let myself consume time hating this. <<less

I love how painful the drama was and how MCs struggled in life together until they finally somehow got a well-off life. They're so cute and am actually savoring the slow process of their feelings for each other.

Am so excited to read more of the story 😊.

Worth romance to read...

Although I seriously love this novel's plot and characters I feel as if it was a bit lacking in the early chapters. You know that feeling when you read a multi chaptered fanfic and you get the satisfaction of the story but feel like details were often left out or time skips were a bit too long to be left completely untouched, that's the feeling this novel gives you when you start. The characters and plot satisfy you however time goes by so fast in certain chapters that you’re left... more>> wondering why nothing else was written or why it feels like you jump from one fanfiction trope to the next.

However this problem gets resolved when they enter the chapters in their 20s. From then on you get to freely enjoy a well written novel that drags you into the story, both in annoyance over characters you wish would just disappear already as well as wholesome moments you want to treasure forever.

As others have said before this novel is more like a slice of life than the usual revenge we would read about but it still has it’s good portion of revenge! Don’t worry those who do evil will get their deserved punishment. However these two have been through so much hardships and agony that you can’t help but wish them the happiest slice of life story you could think of.

Overall this is one of my favorite korean web novels and both the female lead and male lead have stolen my heart, ice cube and brown bear I’ll be rooting for you! <<less

I mean I really don’t get why some readers don’t like the FL. You know that felling when you really give up on yourself sometimes. It really hard to get yourself together when you had gone through so much. This is absolutely a healing story type. I really like Ian 😊

The translation is wonderful, so sad it has been dropped?, , the story got MC that has my favorite personality traits. FL is really independent, smart, brave, not a pushover

The ML is really likeable as well. He seems like a kind, responsible, and mature person.

Well I hope someone continue to translate is bcs this novel is a gem!!!!

I’m writing this review 2 chapters away from the finale/the end of the side chapters as I felt like I couldn’t leave things left unsaid.

Having followed this series for 2+ years now, I have to say that every moment has been an absolute joy to read. From the very beginning, Lariette, our lovely main character and female lead’s story has pulled me in, both pulling at my heart strings and making me cheer for her. Truthfully, the story could’ve just been about her and it’d still turn out absolutely amazing.... more>> Adding our ML, Ian, into the mix however, turned this story into an absolute masterpiece. The two characters synergy are the best I’ve seen written, while their moments of fluff always make me so happy to read about.

Now for some actual details; Going into this story, it’s easy to think it’ll simply be a bunch of fluff/lovey dovey moments between the FL & ML. That, however, couldn’t be further from the truth. The story itself starts off as a tragedy and tale of hardship, showcasing the ab*se & neglect our Female Lead suffers that shaped her into who she is. While this is somewhat standard for these stories, what made it really hit home was how this ab*se & how it shaped Lariette, never really “left.” Even with the love given to her, her past didn’t magically disappear, instead she incorporated it into herself and used it to grow in the future.

Ian is much the same. While I can’t get into very many details without spoilers, he has his own tragedies he’s experienced, a sense of duty, and an overbearing love he’d locked away. All of these drive his character to greater & greater heights, until we hit 60ish chapters in, which I can only describe as the stories “climax.” I was on the edge of my seat the whole time reading these chapters, and the aftermath is one of the most satisfying things I’ve read in a novel.

I also need to talk about the side characters of the story. Starting with the maids, while they didn’t have much “screen time” every moment they had was fun to read, and unlike some others stories maids, they helped serve a major purpose in the story. The story even uses them to subvert your expectations several times, making me genuinely shocked at some points. (Incoming spoilers, past the black box nothing else is a spoiler)

When talking about the side characters, I also can’t neglect the dragons, While they only appear towards the end of the story, each of the dragons individual quirks are incredibly funny while simultaneously adding to their characters and giving them their own motivations. It’s also around wonderful. I also can’t neglect Olivia, Lariette’s mother. As a “mother who abandoned her child” archetype, I initially disliked her, as the author intended. This all turned around later however, when Olivia’s backstory was unfurled before us, completely shocking me in regards to her character and simultaneously turning her into one of my favorites. I could easily recommend the story just for her existence.


Finally, the I must mention translation team: Nabi and Effe. Both of them put tons of work into giving us high quality translations, and I can’t thank them enough for that. Without them, I would’ve never been given the chance to read this wonderful story, and I can’t wait to see what they’ll translate next. Please, I implore you, if only for their amazing translations, please read this story. It’s a 10/10 work on its own, and a 15/10 with their added efforts. <<less

Read this if y'all want an easy-to-follow, don't think too much fluffy romance drama. It's quite a light read even though there's angsty parts in my opinion.

... more>>

We'll get to see how the relationship blossoms between Laritte and Ian after the Duke clears his name and take revenge for his benefactor. Laritte's motive in the story is quite simple while the Duke's becomes unclear after he makes Laritte his duchess officially.


Both main leads' upbringing shaped them, leads them to think and make decisions that lead to the misunderstanding throughout the relationship but they get resolved one way or the other. I don't find it frustrating as I sometimes do with those type of tropes.

The pacing of the story is good and it's easy to follow. Angsty parts are not dragged out for the sake of it. All the secondary characters that are important to the plot, made decisions that makes sense to their character setting but I find myself not caring for them as much because I find myself focusing more on the main couple.


There's gonna be a dragon thrown into the mix so we'll see how that will affects Ian, Laritte and the duchy in the latest chapters (at the time I post this review). Maybe the cat they adopted is the dragon 🧐

This is super sweet~! ♡ And realistic. I love the setting of a humble house and a couple that can mutually cohabitate. So thank you so much, translators. I really appreciate youse allowing us the chance to read this. I also highly recommend Watashi no Shiawase na Kekkon for anyone who cherishes this novel.

Note: I've realized after writing my sentiments that I actually rate it 3.

I've enjoyed it at first but the writing really degraded in the latter part. The romance is also not that satisfying. I really didn't see much of Larrite's affection towards Ian who shows how he loves her so much. I was hoping that eventually, Larrite will show improvements in that aspect in the side stories but it just became worst with ... more>>

their son being obsessive to Larrite, leaving Ian out.

Like come on, shows some love to Ian also. It's sad that his love is reciprocated at the minimum. I get that Larrite is usually expressionless but she shows likings way obviously to her hobby whereas, her love toward Ian was only seen in her confession. Nothing or not much actions were seen in her loving Ian.

I'm kinda disappointed but I enjoyed it nonetheless. <<less

The earlier chapters of this story was actually quite interesting so I decided to pick up this novel. But somehow, the more story progressed, the more deteriorating it was.

There were several conflicts in this story but it's all resolved quickly and uninterestingly until I couldn't feel any satisfaction when it's done.

... more>>

For example: the queen's conspiracy. I thought it would be a long war between the queen and ML but somehow, it's over earlier than what I've expected. Then I realized that the queen wasn't actually that smart and she couldn't hide her emotion well so I'm a bit surprised that she managed to scheme the emperor for years. It made me questioned the emperor and other noble's intelligence.

Another conflict was MC's paternal family. ML swiftly finished them without much efforts and MC's family couldn't even fight back. I also didn't like a prolonged revenge since it could drag the story a lot but still, I think the revenge towards MC's family was a bit too fast


I also didn't like how ML behaved. Surely he was a nice guy but he tended to run away when he couldn't solve his problem which was quite cowardly of him.


In the earlier of MC and ML's relationship, almost everyone knew that he loved MC but he kept denying it over and over again until I couldn't help but to wonder, why? What thing that held him back? It's not like he had a childhood trauma or something.

And when MC had a back luck because of ML's mana, instead of communicating with MC, he directly run away to the capital, making others thought that MC was abandoned. There's 1 year gap after that but it felt that he only left yesterday.


Aside from that, the romance was so slow until I felt bored waiting for them to finally make it official. I know they're legally married but they still acted like a good friend until near the end of the story. MC was clueless while ML was like a shy teenager so it's no wonder that their progress was in a snail pace. <<less
