If you like the Qian Jing series (贺府千金 (He Fu Qian Jin) – The He’s Daughter, 蒋门千金 (Jiang Men Qian Jin) – The Jiang’s Daughter, 小户千金 (Xiao Hu Qian Jin) – The Zheng’s Daughter), then you will most probably like this one. Whenever I need a light-hearted romantic comedy, I will read one of Gong Cha’s books.
FL (Lin Mei) has a sickness. Her sense of smell is extremely sensitive after getting her first period. Whenever she gets close to a handsome man, her body will turn soft. When FL was a baby, her grandfather betrothed her to Su Zhong Xing. Old Master Lin and Old Master Su were good friends and colleagues. FL’s mother (Gu Ke Er) and Su Zhong Xing ’s mother were also best friends.
Old Master Su got promoted and moved to the capital city. FL’s father was a wastrel and lost the family inheritance. After FL’s parents passed away, FL went to the capital city with Gu Nanny to look for Su Zhong Xing.
Su Zhong Xing loves his cousin sister, Luo Ming Xiu and asked FL to cancel their engagement. FL knows she has no family support and it will be difficult for her to marry someone else if she cancels her engagement knowing she has a secret sickness.
Old Madam Su suggested FL marry Su Zhong Xing as his concubine. FL turned it down and suggested Luo Ming Xiu marry Su Zhong Xing as his concubine instead. Madam Su never like Luo Ming Xiu because she got bullied by Luo Ming Xiu’s mother when she first got married. Her husband and son always follow Old Madam Su’s advice. Hence, Madam Su wants to pick her own daughter-in-law, hoping to influence her son to side with her in future when there is a difference of opinion with Old Madam Su.
Everyone in the Su’s family looked down on FL except for Madam Su. Gu Nanny took out the money that she has hidden to buy new clothes and accessories for FL instead of relying on the Su’s family.
Madam Su took FL, Luo Ming Xiu and Mo Shuang Qi to the birthday party of Yong Ping Hou Fu. Yong Ping Hou Fu was also Gu Ke Er’s best friend. FL met 3 handsome men at the party.
Wu Yu Yi, Lou Ming Xiu’s cousin also went to the party. At the party, Wu Yu Yi purposely fell into the pond hoping that one of the gentlemen will save her. But Wu Yu Yi got saved by FL instead. Lou Ming Xiu plotted to embarrass FL in front of the men so that FL will cancel her engagement to Su Zhong Xing. But her plan got backfired. Wu Yu Yi ended up as Su Zhong Xing’s concubine.
Lou Ming Xiu did not give up and set-up another trap for FL. Liu Yong (ML), a young and ambitious official, one of the eligible bachelors in town fell into Lou Ming Xiu’s trap. ML accidentally drank the aphrodisiac tea. When FL walked into the room, ML hugged FL from behind thinking that she was Zhou Ming Ming. FL’s body turned soft her looks was seductive and alluring. ML thought FL has drunk the same tea. Both realised that they fell into a trap. ML helped FL to escape via the window since the door was locked from outside. When Su Zhong Xing entered the room, ML hit his head and fed him the leftover aphrodisiac tea. When ML heard another person approaching, ML hit the man (Zhou Si) and fed him the same tea as well. ML then put both men on the bed. Sensing the effect is starting on his body, ML immediately left the room to look for a release. ML bumped into Bai Tou (Zhou Ming Ming’s maid) who schemed with Lou Ming Xiu. ML hit Bai Tou and almost raped her but stopped himself when he heard someone approaching. In addition, ML has the plan to marry Zhou Ming Ming hence it will be appropriate to sleep with her maid. ML decided to look for FL instead.
Zhou Ming Yang, the first young master of the Yong Ping Hou Fu went to the garden and saw Bai Tou. He thought of having sex with Bai Tou but changed his mind when he heard someone approaching. It was his page-boy and when the page-boy saw Bai Tou, he slept with Bai Tou since his master already promised to give Bai Tou to him.
ML found FL. ML had oral sex with FL and promised to take responsibility for his action. Zhou Ming Yang heard voices and called out. FL show herself and said she got bitten by a snake and asked Zhou Ming Yang to get the servants to help her.
Madam Su and Madam Zhou found both their sons on the bed. After Madam Su and Madam Zhou left, Lou Ming Xiu told Su Zhong Xing and Zhou Si that it was done by FL. They found Bai Tou and all started to put the story together. When FL met them, she swore that she did not do it. FL criticised them for using dirty tactics towards her hence decided to cancel her engagement with Su Zhong Xing. Zhou Ming Yang heard how FL defended herself and clapped his hand in support.
FL went to see Madam Su to cancel her engagement and told her the reason. Su Zhong Xing said he does not want to cancel the engagement and said he will marry FL and Lou Ming Xiu at the same time. FL refused.
ML thought of marrying either Zhou Min Min or Ren Xiao Yu initially but after he met FL, he decided to marry FL instead despite the lack of family support to help him with his career.
FL married ML at last and her sickness slowly disappeared. Su Zhong Xing married Lou Ming Xiu but their marriage was not perfect. Lou Ming Xiu regretted that she puts all her hope on Su Zhong Xing.
