He is the lord of six kingdoms. If he wants to, his army can raze a country to the ground.
She is a talented beauty, famous across the six kingdoms. Just because of a command from him, her family broke up and she and her sisters are forced to marry strangers in a foreign land . The more he wants to conquer her, the more she will resist!
For 2 such stubborn people, there can never be love nor loyalty between them. He thought that he wanted to see her bowing to him, but when she finally kneels before him, why is there no sense of satisfaction? She thought that she had wanted his death, but when he collapsed, vomited blood, and asked “Why did you return?”, why did she cry?
The 2 of them, can they hold on to each other’s hand for the rest of their lives?
This is the third book in the “Mistaken Marriages” series by Qian Lu. In the first and second book, we learnt that the famous Qing sisters are forced to marry the King, the Prime Minister, and a General of their enemy country. On their way there, the second sister incited the rest to commit suicide and as if it is an insufficient show of protest, she got them disfigure their own faces before they hanged themselves. The eldest and the youngest sisters died in that attempt, but their bodies were possessed by 2 time-travellers which are the female leads in the first and second “Mistaken Marriages” books respectively.
In book 3, we finally meet Qing Feng, the one who wanted to die the most but who ended up being the only survivor. She was suppose to marry the Prime Minister Lou Xi Yan, but due to an identity error, she was sent to the Palace instead where she ended up in the Yan Hong Tian’s harem. Her hatred is strong and constantly fueled her quest for revenge. The story is rather heavy, with entrapments, poisoning, deaths, typical of life in Imperial Harems and the relationship between Qing Feng and Yan Hong Tian is definitely a love/hate relationship where they torture each other nicely (though I tend to think that Yan Hong Tian manage to torture Qing Feng more). For me, I enjoyed the ending best of all because it is a happy ending where some sweet moments finally came through.
