I like this story despite that it was only recorded in female voice. Strong FL character, my type of heroine that knows her own mind. Even though ML married three wives, don’t get disappointed with the story as it was a plot to disguise his intention to help the emperor to to take back control of the ruling. Of course, there were couple misunderstandings between the main leads but it ended happily for them.
FL – Shang Zhui is a daughter to a magistrate. Her mother died of heart break after her husband married a second wife. She burnt down her home and ran away after her mom passed away. She became a personal maid to Miss Yan. She and her mistress have very good relationship.
ML – Bai Shi Fei is businessman plotting with the emperor trying to get rid of the empress dowager. She has been taking control of the throne behind the scene. Many years ago when the empress dowager was still a consort, the Bai family had supported her financially to reach the empress’ position. Due to this, the Bai family was closely linked to the empress dowager. ML was even sent to the palace to be the crown prince study companion when he was young. The empress dowager wanted to continue to control ML by suggesting a few marriage candidate to ML.
ML married Miss Yan in name only to help her to reunite with her lover. Since FL is the personal maid to Miss Yan, she followed her mistress to stay at ML’s home. ML fell in love with FL.
ML was forced by the empress dowager to take another new wife. At the same time, ML was also threatened by his childhood friend to marry her. He married both girls at the same time. ML promised FL that both new marriages are in name only and his intention was to get rid of the empress dowager.
Of course at the end, ML only has FL as his wife.
