When Emily Blake innocently kissed formidable Italian count Rafael Di Salis, she didn't know that she was bound by her late father's wishes to marry him. Emily agreed to be the count's wife until she reached twenty-one... Count Rafael has bided his time. He's kept his passions under iron control for two years--his bride was young and he did not want to claim her until she was woman enough to handle him. But now she has come of age, she will be his!

I have read many stories like this out of boredom (guilty pleasure xP) but this is just noooooooooooo!!
All biases aside this is a decent story and very well done for a Harlequin. It's not that cheesy and the art is fine. Over all good.
The reason I scream noooo is because its not cheesy enough! For a harlequin, I expect it to be a little bit more dramatic and everything is over the top, but this one barely has it. Its still pretty cheesy compare to normal manga, so regular manga reader beware!

Nicely done for a Harlequin

I liked this Harlequin a lot. The story is nice, it didn't have the "WTF?" moments which ruined a lot of the other Harlequins for me and the art is good.

And on the previous comment: most people who read Harlequins know what they'll be getting and are most likely not looking for a story like First Girl. It's a different type of story altogether.

Poorly done

I'm assuming that the one chapter which is out is the entire volume given that its 180 pages long.
Yeah. I didn't like this. Emily was such a weak person and her character annoyed me. If your looking for a manga like this try First Girl which is much better.

Edit: I'm not going to delete what I put before, because that would make the above comment irrelevant. What I am going to say is I've now read quite a bit more harlequin manga, and this is beyond doubt the worst I've read. Which is saying something.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The thing that's get me is when she finds out she's pregnant she acts so irrationally, it's like she doesn't have a brain. Not that she doesn't use it, that she does have one. The set up as a whole is pretty weak, though it's kind of common in harlequin, but the female lead manages to come across as even weaker than the average for harlequin.

In short, go read another manga, not this one. There are better out there, even within the harlequin genre (is it a genre? Well, whatever it is)
