Read The Peerless Sage And The Secret Contract ( Japanese ) chapter
In a world where magical beasts strike fear into the hearts of people, the privileged few from families with prestigious titles known as magical nobles possess the ability to wield magic and slay these beasts, including the Earl of Norris. Stella, the daughter of the Earl, is believed to have perished after marrying the violent Marquis Elliott and being confined in the basement. But suddenly, she finds herself back on the day of her engagement and decides to flee her home in a bid to alter her destiny. While in the woods, she meets Lucas, the son of Earl Bradley, who is considered incompetent for his lack of magical prowess and incapable due to his unresponsive body to any woman’s touch. Despite his efforts, Lucas cannot restore his magical powers until he makes contact with Stella, which allows him to regain some of his power. To help Lucas fully restore his magical powers, they enter into a one-year marriage contract. However, their frequent physical contact leads to mutual attraction, and they eventually cross the line. With Lucas’s magic now reawakened and greatly amplified, he unleashes his true power.
