Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Bronte is running away from a failed wedding ceremony in the rain when she finds a cabin for shelter, occupied by a blood-soaked man with Gold eyes, who claims he just killed a man. His name is Mars West, and on impulse he kisses her, just as the police come to drag him away.

Five years later Bronte comes to New York to see Mars, who spent two years in prison for the murder it turns out he didn't commit. Then things get strange…

This is a soap opera of the highest order, with machinations and manipulations that only the very rich could get away with…

Based on Ann Major's novel, "Secret Child".

Really dumb protagonist

This wasn't a bad read but you just have to tolerate one of the dumbest protagonist that has ever been created. Bronte definately is a special kind of stupid. I agree with toffeefudge, this is not as good as Silver. She doesn't really have much character growth and isn't really someone interesting to read about either. But Mars West is somewhat interesting and the rivalry between him and Gus Brown has me hooked.

Why do mangakas wish to make heroines sooooo stupid. well I'm not going to put all the blame on the mangaka since this was based from a novel first so there's shared responsibility. I liked to story until the heroine became the most spineless, stupid, lack-witted idiot with a mother Teresa complex I've had the displeasure to read about. (no.1 on my list of terrible manga heroines) Gus basically rapes her and she forgives him. the doctor kidnaps her and tries to use her as a replacement for her mother and she forgives him. And lets not forget Mischief who uses her, almost has her raped or killed on multiple occasions and shoots at her with a gun and Bronte still doesn't want the bitch to go to jail, REALLY!!!!! Bronte wants to try and save her,REALLYconfused? I love smut mangas but the dynamics between Bronte and every other character but Mars makes this story a little tough to swallow. the smut is the only reason i give it a 7.

I'm generally not a hater, I'm receptive to all kinds of character personalities, but I must admit the female protagonist of Gold is really really annoying sometimes, with her all nosense actions. Anyway, it's a good manga despite that...

Ok, not as good as Silver

I had high hopes for this manga because I was literally addicted to Silver (couldn't get off my chair) but ended up not feeling as strongly about the characters and eventually getting bored and dropping it. Unlike the main character of Silver, who was naive but also smart, and showed great character growth, the main character of Gold was a little too straight-laced, meek, and somewhat un-interesting. The story, set in modern-day America rather than Victorian England, also lessens the strength of the plot somewhat. The page-turner of the story is the ex-wife antagonist who is deviously schematic and keeps throwing the unwary couple together (without her, you wonder if these two bores would even be together). When the sex scenes did show up, they did not disappoint, however.

It was alright, actually.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she had the perfect opportunity to get herself out of a gunpoint situation AND SHE DIDN'T TAKE IT because she was afraid of shooting the gun T________________________T**** Just because she shoots doesn't mean she'll kill. At least keep shooting until all the bullets are used up. WTH?!?!

I'm sorry, this is just too stupid for me to take. Who in the world
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
gets their hands on a gun in a crucial situation and just gives it back to the person who threatened them at gunpoint earlier?

My suspension of disbelief has been shattered. What sympathy I had for the character to keep reading is... gone.

It's a shallow read; if you're looking for a fluffy feel-good Cinderella story though, this story was a decent read. The plot feels shoujo-esque in the character's maturity, and is labeled as josei simply because of the more mature elements.

Haha , all i can say is , this is great . To all the fans who loves smut , this is the best for you . My pretty simple review for this story . Choose to see it or not :3
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Personally , i'm not into smut that much, but after reading it , i can't help but to love it . I love how the herorine;Bronte wanted to clarify that she is the one that the hero is finding . However having the same face as the hero's "wife" , the hero was having a great difficulty of having to believe her or not . After knowing the truth that she is the real one . Not the "wife" . They both fall in deep love . But that came the jealousy "wife" (same face as Bronte) . Getting ideas trying to break them apart .

That's all . I just love it . ♥

It has a great storyline and is really interesting and exciting. The main conflict in the story (about poor Bronte getting that face) is ingenious. I love it. It's pretty dramatic- The heroine sure is naive, but not as annoying as in Silver (FUJITA Kazuko) . I can make up with her.
The art is good. I like the mature style. It's more realistic than those big-eyed cuties (no offens ;D; I like them as well biggrin) The relationship between Bronte and Mars is really sweet. Even though it`s a smut, the reader doesn't get the felling that the relationship is just based on sex. This manga leaves me starving for mooore!^^

this is probably one of the best smut manga i've ever read! and the heroine doesn't annoy me at all! Even though she's extremely naive, i can still feel the excitement in the progression of the plot! Plus i love mars he's so sexy and not an asshole! I hate when smut manga have the same mean character least mars has a good reason to be mean! I can't wait for more!

I *actually finished* this atrocity.

Have you ever soldiered through the swamplands of reading an entire harlequin manga? Those usually last four or five chapters. Now, try and imagine if someone tried to drag on a harlequin for FIFTY. EIGHT. FRIGGIN'. CHAPTERS.
That's this manga.

Now, for those of you who've never read a harlequin, try and imagine what it would sound like to hear a complete novice attempting to play a violin whilst holding that stick thingy you play one with in their teeth. Got it? (If your ears are hurting just thinking about it, you've got it) Okay, good. Now imagine you had to listen to that for a total of ten hours, and each period of ear pain had to last at least ten minutes.
That's what reading this manga from start to finish feels like.
