The Prince's Mistress by Yu Kohaku
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The Prince’s Mistress by Yu Kohaku – based on the original novel by Sandra Morton.
Finally, I have a winner!
I was determined to find a Harlequin Manga in which the story matched the quality of the illustrations.
The original novel by Sandra Morton, appears to be a very short story, probably posted as a free online read on the Harlequin web page. As such, I was unable to locate it since it was originally published back in 2009.
That said, this story, if it had been published officially, would probably have been released under the HP line, because of the focus on the wealthy and glamorous, a hallmark HP trope.
Therefore, if you know what to expect, none of the over the top aspects of the story will surprise you. In this case, I’d suggest taking it for what it is meant to be- a fantasy. Pure fantasy. Nothing about this story is realistic or plausible. However, it was sweet, sexy, and romantic, and I have to say Prince Nick is kind of dreamy. Chloe, however, is a harder sell, but she caved nicely.
I thought it was funny that both characters were hiding their true identities, hoping to avoid the marriages their families were expecting from them. Naturally, there are misunderstandings and pain along the way, but the ending is very nice-predicable, of course- but nice- with a proper happily ever after!!
