That’s right, I’m here posing as my sister, Chantal, his fiancée, to trick him into making our plan work out! Ooh, but can I really take advantage of a man like him?

I already bought the raws for this trilogy:

  1. The Sultan’s Bought Bride
  2. HQc The Greek’s Royal Mistress
  3. HQc The Italian’s Virgin Princess

Volume 1 and 2 are great and steamy hot. I was disappointed with The Italian’s Virgin Princess which was so-so. Tanaka-sensei’s art is as pretty as ever but in the 3rd story, there was hardly any smut. The drama was tepid, just like any regular romance plot. Volume 1 and 2 showed so much raw passion, I had too high expectations for the last book.
