A little irritated at first, but it gets better

This one had quite a few bad reviews but I decided to read it anyways, and that was a right choice.
What I like about this manga are the female lead, the grand duke and the pleasing clean art. The female lead is neither stupid nor too naive, but I'd rather say that she's a unique girl. She isn't someone we have seen before - innocent, sweet and caring, yet so bold and quirky. Grand duke the male lead isn't the typical bad-tempered and mean male character, he is very kind and wise toward his people, he just has his own principles and sense of just. My other fave would be the quirky and playful assassin. The plot is also good, and the development isn't bad either.
What irritated me was the way some characters act toward the female lead. Treice (only when they first met) and Reiden (almost always) doesn't even listen to her and act only based on their feelings toward grand duke. Even when she says that she wants to go back/stay or that she's happy with her life as his wife, they still act like they didn't hear a thing and try to drag her out of the place. And also, the maid claims to be the duke's lover, while he doesn't even show any affection, and even try to harm her really gets on my nerves. However it does get better later on, so that problem's solved. The later part of the manga is actually a nice and sweet read.

Expectations not met

I kept expecting more to happen. Every chapter I wondered if this is when Alicia's character would get flushed out a bit more. Even by the end I sort of just felt like it was the end of an introduce all the main characters and plot arc. By the end, it felt like, "ok so now the story can began" but nope, that is the end.

The story is not bad, I will admit that while I knew what would happen, I did want to see it happen. I did wish there was a bit more to be told though. The storytelling by my opinion was not as smooth as I'd have liked, but it is fine.

The art is nice; the characters lean more on the likable side, with only two at a high risk of becoming annoying.

Overall I had fun reading it and would have kept reading if it had more to offer.

Too many annoying parts.. Cute otherwise.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she is wedding a ass that ends up being killed on the alter. She is then wed to a conceded guy that has a maid that is his mistress?! And he lets her run the household and his wife. He's stupid. She's stupid. But the plot otherwise is cool. And their is this kid that tries to interfere with them. But he gets back stabbed in the end and adopted by the duke he hates.

Art is great but terrible execution of dialogue and plot

I was attracted to the clean and incredible artwork however that ends there.

One description: A story for females to self-insert themselves as the female where men fall for her unconditionally.

Every arc always involve a pretty boy dashing himself up to her and asking her to leave with him with no previous story or dialogue established. It's always "I see you're the wife of that duke! Elope with me instead!"

The plot goes no where and the dialogue is stale. The male lead is the typical character with a bad personality. The female is incredibly naive.

Moreover, the male mc married the female mc with the goal of producing children with noble blood. Despite being the her husband, everyone treats them as "you can't lay your hands on her even if she's your wife!" What nonsense is this...

Loved it!!!!

i loved this manga. i really don't understand why it got bad reviews. the heroine is unique and original. she wasn't stupid, just a little innocent and naive at times but not in an annoying way. It was cute(come on she's only 15). it's was a refreshing change from the over the top shoujo heroine that have become the norm. Best thing she didn't cry once during the whole manga. I'm not use to that. At some point the heroine always cries over something or another. Getting jealous and disappointed over every little thing the guy does. I even like the hero. He was a well thought out character. He wasn't some sadistic a$$hole who felt the need to bully and tease the heroine(which sadly is also the norm). every characters' actions were well within ranges of what i consider normal and not over the top. So ignore the bad reviews and decide for yourself if you like the manga.

This is an interesting read actually. The main heroine may look like some dimwitted chick but she's frankly honest and I really like her. I like Kashburn and Nora too. Although Nora is like, trying all kinds of ways to get rid of Alicia in somewhat funny ways. The storyline is pretty interesting, I kinda like the twist here and there but there's one thing I'm not really sure of though. Like the part where the assassin killed Alicia's first "husband". I mean, what was the reason for?

That part should have been clearly pointed out although I know it's just a way to get the heroine's story started. Also, the twist at the end is a bit complicated, what with the "angels wings" or whatnot. I guess I gotta re-read the ending to understand what's going on. But I'd say give it a try. The art is pretty good too (especially the hot looking guys, minus Earl Reiden. He's like a brat, honestly). But yeah, this manga has a lot of potential.

Well, if you were considering reading this, but decided not to because of the more negative comments, trust me:
Read it anyways.
Personally, I only read one comment before I read the work, (I was afraid of spoilers) but it happened to be a negative one. Thank Mang (don't bother googling it, it's a deity me and my atheist brother made up as kids xD) I decided to read it anyways! It was really good. Really. For me, my only issue was that negative comment I read! You see; due to that comment, I refused to let myself like the characters or plot no matter how likable they became. I kept thinking, no, you can't fall in love with this story. You'll be so disappointed by the end. Don't.
But after reading the entire thing, the only thing that disappointed me was that I hadn't allowed myself to enjoy it. The female lead is just quirky beyond belief, and I love it! I love how her reaction to basically everything is Oh look, this is happening. How interesting.; and yet, she wasn't as rediculously stupid as people say. She's actually really intelligent. If she's stuck in a dangerous situation, she's not going to just act blindly. Her thoughts just aren't narrated to the reader, so you have to do a bit of guesswork and factor in completely objective logic before her motives become clear. I can see how people would think she's stupid, though, but rather than being stupid she's just blunt.
She says what she thinks, when she thinks it and that causes her to cross plenty of lines when she asks questions; but I don't really see that as stupidity. It's more like a philosophy of what's wrong with curiosity? If I don't know anything, I won't get anywhere, anyways.
As for the male lead, really nothing wrong with him. He wasn't super unique like the female lead, but he was still a decently realistic and well-rounded character.
I tend to save my tens for things that I really enjoy, but this one deserves it. The only reason I didn't utterly adore it is because I didn't let myself, so my own personal bias should not subtract from the rating. My way of rating manga is: Everything starts at ten. You subtract an appropriate amount for every annoyance and perhaps subtract more as they stack.
This manga had absolutely nothing wrong with it and would have been very enjoyable; so it gets a ten.

The protaganist is so completly dumb and oblivious to erything going on around her and because of this, the story goes nowhere. The romance is a letdown as well. More of,a comedy than a romance, and not a very funy one. Art is good.

I don't understand why some people think the protag is annoying - She's ditzy, a little bit airheaded, but she has her feet on the ground and knows where the limits are, and apologizes when she crosses them. She's a realistic with an imagination and isn't focused on stuff like "oh no hes no talks to me he hates me wah i love him all of a sudden", nah, she does her own thing. The development with the love interest is subtle, but it's there and strong, extremely from his side. There's also some comedic value in this. The main guy isn't angsty or broody with a stick up his butt when the heroine does something he doesn't like (she took her chances but felt bad about it), so that was a plus. There wasn't anything needlessly dramatic about anything, except for the whole "princess of death" title she was given.

As for the plot, some twists there, but it's more towards the end. Enjoyable

The art is great, the execution is great, I just only wish it was longer! Off to the sequel smile

Cute art, good plot, annoying heroine

Title says it all.
It could have been much better, have we had a decent heroine. She really is annoying beyond belief and stupid to the point of impossible.
I wish the author would have made her a bit more aware and calculating, while still keeping that 'realistic' and blunt side of her.
The art and the idea of the plot gives it some points, otherwise, it's quite bad.
