Greetings everyone! May 2014 brings you happiness. Here’s my first post of the year to update my raws collection with my latest acquisitions. Two of them are already translated and published, but I could have the Japanese versions at a bargaining price so I didn’t hesitate and purchased them.

Merry Christmas everyone!

I wanted feel-good mangas for the holiday season. So part of this selection consists of sweet light stories and the other part of Christmas theme Harlequin comics.
These are only a few of my December acquisitions. Among them, there are the San Rimini series and the Princess Swap duet the publisher has started translating into English but hasn’t yet completed. In case they would forget about these pending series, I at least have the raws to get an idea of what’s going on for other characters.

Princess Swap
The first story of Jessica Hart’s Princess Swap duet is already translated and published. I still wanted the raws for both books while waiting for the publisher to release the second story in English.

I bought lots of books this month. One day, I hope to be able to get all those manga adaptations based on Western romance novels. o (◡‿◡✿)

Fool's ParadiseBased on the number of positive reviews and good ratings from the Japanese readers, the manga version of Fool’s Paradise seems to be the most appreciated HQc, or at least one of their top 5 favourites. That’s the reason why I decided to take a look at the manga books.

Honestly, Fujita Kazuko-sensei isn’t a favourite of mine, though I admit she’s among the best illustrators for manga adaptations of Western romance novels. I know she’s considered in Japan as the Queen of HQc.
And for Fool’s Paradise, I’m just gonna say the 3 volumes are well drawn and full of adventures. Most HQc fans will probably like it.

I’ve never read the novel version, though I did read a couple of Tori Phillips’ books when I was younger. I can’t say they were unforgettable. But I don’t feel adverse to this author, so they must have been okay-to-nice read.

I’m not especially fond of periods prior Regency England but Elizabethan era fans will certainly welcome this change of setting. The hero’s status is rather unusual for a romance story: a commoner and a jester to boot!

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

Fool's Paradise

Fool's Paradise

Synopsis

‘Twas no laughing matter…

When fleeing an odious arranged match, the Lady Elizabeth Hayward found herself under the protection of famed court jester Richard Tarleton. But even disguised as the fool’s boy apprentice, there was no hiding the fact that she’d fallen hopelessly in love!

Though Tarleton’s ready wit had won him royal favor, his tongue was tied in the presence of the sweet-voiced Elizabeth—at least about things that truly mattered. For how could he offer the queen’s own goddaughter a gift so lowly as his own foolish heart?
