The Reluctant FiancéeAdding another HQc to my list. The Reluctant FiancéeAs expected from Iwasaki-sensei, the art is gorgeous and the story looks charming. I’m not too fond of Leon’s curly hair, but later on the manga, the curls are cut short… which I like better. Bea looks like a nice and strong woman. Maybe a bit young and quick to jump to conclusions, but both characters’ shared past speaks of so much love and probably explains Bea’s and Leon’s insecurities related to their age gap. The ending is lovely, with a hint of humour. -(๑☆‿ ☆#)ᕗ

If someone is interested in scanlating this manga, you’ll find the specifications and samples of the files in Harlequin & Romance comic raws collection and you can submit a request for the raws HERE.

Synopsis
Second-time seduction! Bea has been reunited with Leon Gregoris, her ex-fiancé. But this time Leon won’t mesmerize her with his dark Greek-Cypriot good looks. Bea is older and in charge of herself now; she won’t be captive to sexual chemistry!
Then Leon announces they are engaged again—which is news to Bea! Before she can protest, Leon has whisked her away to his luxury villa in Cyprus. And guess what: that same mutual, intense physical attraction is as strong as ever. Bea might be unwilling to be Leon’s fiancée a second time, but it’s proving harder to steer clear of his bed!
