After her cruel death, Xiaofei finds herself inside the body of a pretty young lady from the noble Lin family owning the same name as her. She was blessed with a peerless beautiful face, worthy of winning every men's heart and gaining women's envy in her previous life. But she foolishly fell in love with the prince and was destined to die a painful death at the hands of her very own beloved people. In this new life and body, evil schemes and scandals won't let her escape even after rebirth hence, she starts to do the same and goes ruthless to those who tries to go against her. Men and women needs to be bought. Golden Throne has to be passed over. Empire must be conquered and torched down. Hearts needs to be snatched. With a cruel era like this, one can only forcibly try to make a shell and protect oneself from harm. However, who would have thought that a man full of viciousness and have an arrogance that could pierce the sky would suddenly barge into Xiaofei's life? And would shamelessly whisper next to her ear, "My wife's enemy is my enemy and my wife's wish is also my wish. However, I also have another wish that only my wife could grant for me." "That is to have my wife for breakfast, lunch, snack, and dinner." .... Note: This novel is an ORIGINAL story by (Poisonlily) and NOT a TRANSLATION.

Hi, your Poisonous Author's here making a shameless review of my own novel. 😅😅😂😂 First and foremost, thank you so much for taking your time to check out my story! And I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing them. I'm not Chinese so I have little to no knowledge of Chinese history but I've read and watched Chinese dramas and novel (Love it 😍) and I sometimes base my novel in them. English is my fourth language so, you'll probably see a lot of spelling and grammar errors everywhere in the novel but please, do point it out so I can fix it. I'm always open to critiques but please don't be too harsh, my heart can't keep up with it 😭😭 Anyway, I won't hold you off any longer and let you join Xiaofei in her journey in revenge and love! XOXO Poisonlily


Gah, so good! I'm addicted... I can't wait for another release! The main character is so bad ass and inspiring... ' (@o@) ' I need another dose of poison.


I am INTRIGUE!!! One of the best original novel I've read by far. You got me hooked! Thank you for this creative art. It's explosive! 🌋 Can't wait for the next update...


I just caught up reading this novel and I must say, I am torn between regret and satisfaction! 😅 Regret because I regretted finding this gem way too soon as the updates are not as regular as I want it to be, unfortunately! Author-nim, how about blessing us with daily updates pretty please 😚 kekeke And satisfaction because OHLALA! This story is just similar to my favorite novel, The Rebirth of the Malicious Military Lineage! Okay given that our FL didn't have a rebirth like Shen Miao but was instead transmigrated into a different body BUUUT it's the same world and timeline from her past self. They're similar in a way that she, Xiaofei, is bent on avenging herself on her scum ex-husband who killed her. Of course we also have her pathetic excuse of a family, except for her Grandfather who dotes on her wholeheartedly. Did someone order a case of faceslapping on stupid ex fiance, shrew aunties and feeble uncles? YES! ME!!!✋ And our ML! SIGH. He reminds me of Xie Jing Xing as they both have peerless beauty lol and of course they also both have hidden businesses (pawnshop and restaurant) that is obviously not actually what it seems to be. No love at first sight in here as well, more like interest at first sight 😄 Just start reading this novel y'all and hopefully that will inspire our author to write more chapters! Hahahaha

Overall a wonderful read, I enjoy the transmigration/reincarnation trope and this is what you are served in a "hot dish" lol!, although we are just a few chapters in, get ready to get sucked in to this wonderful story, a female lead that is strong, kick-ass, calculative and endearing, my kind of girl, give it a try guys u wouldn't regret it


So I'm Back!!! Author nim!!! Your other novel MY VILLAINOUS WIFE is amazing by the way!! Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!!! More please!.........


This story is really good, I enjoy how the character is designed and the story development isn't too much fast. The writer is really meticulous when describing the scenes, thing that I love. I like how the FL doesn't change her true self and shows her ruthless side without caring about anything lmao, I recommend this story to everyone who likes strong leads and not really fast developments!


I really really want this book to be picked up. Its soooooo good and it sucked me right in. 60 chapters are way to short to actually see where this book is going... please pick it up!!!! 😁😁😁😁


Looking forward to unluck next chapter... Very good novel...i like this novel waiting to unluck the other chapters... 😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊😊


Looking at the level of the author, the first thing that came to my mind was "*******" but now that am a bit familiar with her works I could not help but laugh at my own first impression of her. Right from the synopsis, poisonlily got me hooked.


This story is so good! Here’s why: 1. First of all, we have a strong FL that is NOT a doormat. 2. A ML you don’t want to mess with (😉 unless you’re the FL). 3. Well written rebirth story. 4. Regular updates. Now the bad news...once you are caught up, you have to wait for the updates.😫

I like the story so much because the FL is level headed and she's very different from the usual rebirth FL from other novels. She rebirthed as someone younger and someone else but she didn't change her attitude and mindset to pretend as someone else. She just being herself. This is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to everyone who loves rebirth and strong FL.

OMG... If it wasn't because it was recommended to me I would have never found this treasure.... I love Shameless Male Leads and Strong Beautiful And Smart Female Leads... Although it's quite a cliché story, it doesn't bore me at all... I will definitely look forward to duture chapters
