From Aerandria Scans:

The seventeenth daughter of Lord Neville has been setup for an arranged marriage. She and her close maid companion Ada come up with a plan to derail this plan. From outside appearances, our heiress is an extremely plain girl while her maid is beautiful. Though plans aren't always what they seem… but then again, neither is our gentleman suitor. A definitely wicked story where women take charge of their own fate…and men happily accept theirs?

well, this one definetely depends on your tastes. it s along the line of the author's other works, so if you like them this will probably won't let you down.
but yeah, it's not really my cup of tea.
and it being a oneshot also makes the development (if you expect something, anything else) quite surprising. also, i forgot to read the tags. that would have probably helped.

Not sure what I was expecting when I picked this up. Probably short and sweet. Was not expecting short and hysterical! It was a little twisted but that's what made it so fun. I have never loved a one shot so much.

Ahahaha, made me laugh. The gentleman was such a strange character. I would have liked more along this story line (though with no progression any further than the light BDSM). I would say this is a goofy story, that's left me wanting to read more. smile

This funny oneshot reminded me of Kaori Yuki twisted stories. I'm sure Ludwig would have loved to butt in this one (if you know Ludwig Kakumei, you know wha I mean). Ok, this is twisted, but I don't think it deserves so low rating : it's original and the art isn't bad.

in a way. their relationship is very very close, and the guy is also a good addition. i really like such relationships where they can bare all their desires without being ashamed of them. i read pet shop of horrors by this same mangaka, so this is quite tame by comparison. though, the plethora of 1 rating shows that some virgin girls looking for sappy romance get quite a shock.

The art's pretty...old? Maybe? I can't exactly pinpoint what kind of style it is but is drawn quite sharply.

It's just a 20+ so no time wasted, I guess. It's just really...unexpected. Like weird. Not bad but it's the kind that makes you go "whuuut? Ahahaha". No actual romance. I want to tag stuff to this soooo bad but I don't want to spoil anything.

This is a 20-ish page story. Basically, you have a beautiful maid and her plain mistress (a rich young lady), and a womanizing guy who mistakes which woman is which. (This is all in the first few pages, so it's not a spoiler.) The whole story is a really bizarre comedy with no actual romance.
