Disowned for being a human, Vivian was taken in as a maid at the age of seven by the Carmichael household. Serving one of the most respected and elite pureblood families in Bonelake, there were rules. Rules that must be followed by all servants and maids. Like everyone else, Vivian was repeatedly reminded not to disobey the rules. But before she could learn to blend into the background like the other servants, the Duke's young son calls to her, “Bambi.” And all hell breaks loose. ----- "What? Never seen a bruise before?" Leonard scoffed at the girl. "Does it hurt?" Vivian asked, gently kneeling beside him and examining the several bruises covering his face. "Not that much." Remembering what her mother used to do when she got a bruise, Vivian brought her sleeve to her mouth and blew warm air on it before placing it on the boy's cheek, taking him by surprise. Leonard swatted her hand away, a hint of pink appearing on his cheeks embarrassed, "W-what are you doing?" "Mama told me this will make the pain go away," the girl held her hand close to her chest as she shared her past memory. "I’m not a child!” Leonard huffed at her. “I don’t think you’re a child,” she stared at him with a crystal-clear gaze. Taken aback, Leonard locked eyes with her for two seconds before shaking his head. “Don’t worry about it. They’ll heal in a day or two anyways," he reassured her before getting up and taking a seat at the table where his books were placed. "Odd girl," he muttered to himself as he pulled the top book from the stack and lost himself in it.

Excerpt: "Why do you even want to sleep with me again? It's so strange of you!" Euphemia said. Lucien took her hand and pressed his lips on the back of her hand. "It felt very nice. I liked feeling your body against mine. I liked seeing you wake up. I would like to see your face when I sleep and when I wake up." Euphemia was shocked. She had not expected Lucien to be this affectionate. She had only prepared herself for an engagement that was like a business transaction. She had not prepared herself for something like this.

Chef Zoe Kim, hired by the (dead) heroine from the book she read once, entered the novel and possessed the body of a side character to do one job: save the abandoned Crown Princess. But the character that she possessed is meant to die at the hands of Duke Isaak Viotto--- the ghoul duke. Yes, GHOUL, a creature that eats human flesh. Regardless of what the duke is, she can't avoid him because he's the key to her success. Luckily, she just knows how to get to his good graces. 'THE WAY TO A MAN'S HEART IS THROUGH HIS STOMACH,' right? She's a chef and the ghoul duke has an awful eating habit. And she's about to fix that, With the help of her lovely pastel pink chef's knife, she's determined to feed Isaak Viotto until he's wrapped around her finger. Wait, no, that's a bit excessive. The last thing that Zoe needs is a ghoul duke obsessed with her (god-tier cooking skills)! *** [ORIGINAL BOOK COVER. Artwork commissioned by sola_cola from Artist CJ.] *** (EXCERPT 1) [I didn't expect to meet Isaak Viotto, the ghoul duke, as soon as I entered this novel.] Scratch that. Zoe should say that she didn’t expect to find him in a dark alley but there she was. Isaak Viotto was crouching down at the corner while holding a dog. Considering the fact that he had his mouth wide open as if he was about to bite the dog, it was obvious that she just interrupted his meal. He only closed his mouth when he felt her presence, then he turned to her. [Oh no, he's hot!] Isaak Viotto snarled, baring his fangs at her. “What are you looking at?” “Your violet eyes,” Zoe said without thinking. “They look yummy.” “Huh?” “I like putting violet pansies in my salad,” she explained. “They’re delicious.” He just looked at her as if she was crazy. She was aware that Duke Isaak Viotto was a GHOUL and ghouls, apparently, eat human flesh. But... [Dang, he's really hot.] “Give me the dog,” Zoe told the ghoul duke. “I’ll make you steak tartare in return.” [So, how did I end up in this situation again?] *** (EXCERPT 2) “You shouldn’t be too rough on animals even if you plan to eat them,” Zoe lectured the ghoul duke that she caught in the middle of trying to eat a dog--- alive! “There’s a humane way of taking their lives, you know?” Isaak Viotto, the ghoul duke that allegedly eats human flesh, just looked at her with glowing violet eyes. “You’re not scared of me,” he said bluntly. “Are you not afraid of getting eaten?” “Literally or sexually?” “What?” “What?” Zoe asked back. “I thought we were flirting.”

Anne Hastings was reborn again. FOR THE THIRD TIME. She already lived miserably for two lives, why is she being forced to live it all again? No matter how much she struggled to change her fate, Anne didn't want to go that path again. She married Duke Aiden Winston two times, and in both of them she lived an unhappy marriage and died time because of him... Being reborn again, Anne swore that she would live a different life this time. First, she would find a way to break the loop. Second, she would get away from that heinous Duke... ---------------- So, have we received the acceptance letter from Count Hastings?", the Duke asked, almost in a rethorical tone, as he direct his gaze to the reports in his hand, trying to figure out from where to start. With a light cough, the usually unfazed butler replied in a awkward tone: "Count Hastings didn't accept your marriage proposal, You Grace". Aiden, who was signing a document, froze. "What?" Aiden was startled. He was the most powerful and rich duke of Serenia. Not only that, he knew he was handsome, since lots of girls in his undercover missions would try to get close to him. All his life he had never been rejected by a girl, even though he never wanted to be with any of them. He was rumoured to be the most coveted bachelor in the kingdom, even more than the crown prince according to some more daring ladies. So why a decadent family like the Hastings had refused him? The temperature in the room dropped impossibly cold and the butler, afraid of the Duke's piercing gaze, hurried to amend the situation: "Count Hastings didn't refuse your proposal, You Grace. He merely requested to postpone his answer until his daughter's debut, which will take place on month from now". "I don't see why to wait. He could have answered now", Aiden frowned, still not entirely convinced with the explanation. "Y-your Grace, if you allow this servant..." "Yes?" , asked the Duke in a glacial tone. "Perhaps... Perhaps Count Hastings is a doting father". Seeing the clueless face of the Duke, the butler continued: "Some fathers deeply love their daughters. As such, it's normal to be reluctant to give their daughters to other men, even if the fiancé is as qualified as Your Grace". "I need her. We've tested several women and she's the only one compatible, you know that". With his hand on his chin, the Duke seemed in deep thought. "Should I kill him?" "NO!", the butler screamed a little too loud for his position. Sighing internally, the poor butler tried to maintain his composure. "Your grace, I meant you should court his daughter. You should prove your worth to Count Hastings until her debut". "Oh... I see". With a deeper frown than before, the Duke asked: "And how do I do that?". ****** "I'm sorry for the delay", Anne said with a half courteasy, not even making an effort to hide her disdain from her guest. "You don't look sorry", replied the Duke, with an emotionless expression. "I dare say you don't look even happy to see me, your suitor". "...I guess I'm shy". "You didn't seem shy in the letter you wrote me" "Most writers are only daring with a pen in their hands". "A pen, huh? What about a ring?" "Rings are awfully bothersome to use while writing. And I tend to lose them everywhere". -------------------- *Author's words: Hi, this is my first time ever trying to create something like this, so I appreciate any constructive feedback.

#The Royals: Anna and Williams Anna was a simple girl, a free spirit and not your usual prim and proper kind-of girl. While girls her age were busy having tea parties, playing castle and attending debut balls, Annalisa-Jane Jacobs loved to play with children, wear trousers under her gowns and climb rocks. It didn't help that she was a princess. She was also stubborn and rebellious; traits she got from her father. And she hated to be confined and controlled even though she was the Princess of Worcestershire Castle. Annalisa-Jane Jacobs wanted to be wild and free and this went against her father's wishes. Her parents, the King and Queen of Worchester, thought getting her married would make her act like a woman. They believed that marriage was the solution. So when his childhood friend, Duke De Beaumont tells him his second son, Williams De Beaumont had returned back from completing his masters abroad in England, the Royal family and the Dukes decides that the young Duke was the perfect match for their daughter Annalise, the Princess. But here is the problem. The Duke and the Princess hated each other from their first meet. William was pompous, proud. Arrogant! Annalisa-Jane was simple, stubborn. Rebellious! They were bad combinations for each other. They rather kill themselves than to get married. And seeing that their parents were hell bent on going through with the marriage alliance; thus they made sure to flaunt their parents plans, get them angry, do un-royal-like things just so they cancel the wedding. It was a ‘’ruin it’’ or ‘’run-away’’ plan if it doesn’t work out. Their hate for each other was evident. But there is one thing as strong as hate -which is love, especially when they did not see it happening. Not Ever!!!! Set in recent times and having an ambience of classic royal family politics, unknown enemies and a bust of unexpected turns, the Royals: Anna and Williams takes us on a journey of hate and eventual love; without restrictions to foul language even in their thick Worcestershire accent, raw unfiltered desires and mixed emotions that would get you laughing, angry, giddy, frustrated and toes curling and heart beating fast waiting for that moment. It would keep you at the edge of your seat because you would not want to stop turning those pages. I mean how can you, it’s too juicy, so don’t blink!!

"Brak!!!" Suara alat berat jatuh dari gedung di tempat ku bekerja dan tanpa ku sadari membuat diriku mati saat itu juga. Aku berusaha untuk tetap tersadar tapi karena darah yang bercucuran dari kepala ku sangat banyak aku tidak tahan untuk menutup mata. "Semoga saja ada yg langsung membawa ku kerumah sakit, tapi meskipun tak ada dan aku harus mati kurasa aku tidak punya penyesalan di dunia ini, karena semua orang yang berharga bagiku telah mati, dan sekarang saatnya aku menyusul mereka ke sana" pikir ku saat memejamkan mata.

Yang membuat ku tersadar akan ingatan gadis ini bahwa aku telah berenkarnasi menjadi seorang istri Duke. .......
