considering there was so much from the original book to condence to fit manga form it is suprisingly faithful... the begining took a huge chunk and reworked it to get the important details in and had to cut my favorite scene (the original meeting of Emaline & Alex). It also left out the bits with Alex's friend John but he gets his own story next. I truly recommend finding the original version by Elizabeth Boyle... but be warned... it covers 13 books lol.
John's story is begun with foreshadowing the history of his (& his eventual lady) with a giant debacle at the opera Emaline skips out on. That is not shown in the manga here (where it should have been)

6 chaps uploaded in 2 "shots" - Such a confluence of coincidence, but still a lovely story, and long enough to involve you a bit more than most.

Read both comic and novel, and they were both wonderful.

    If she thought she was married to that swindler who sold her to the guys who shot her, then she probably wasn't a virgin. Rare for Harlequin, and one settled in those times... well done!

      Elton show up in a few more of the original series's books. In his bosses story and in Jacks also. Do look up Elizabeth Boyle's original books beginning with Something about Emmaline, and going on for several more books! you can't possibly regret it if you enjoyed this. The book series is "The Bachelor Chronicles"

    Usually the HRs pace is too fast to get into the emotions but this one is not so bad. I liked it.

    If someone knows the names of the harlequins shown at the very end of the last chapter, please do tell =)

    I guess I'm glad, I wasn't born in that time.. the Ton is awful!
    Then again, with the right guy at your side, I guess you'll make arrangements with the era ;)
    The language was a little difficult to understand at time in the first 3 chapters, but it got a lot better later.
    Overall, a very interesting and "new" read.
