Both of these manga are about foreign royalty who fall in love at first sight with commoners of other countries. Although one is a homosexual relationship both stories are very similar (although the plot of Perfect Girl keeps expanding), and if you loved one you might enjoy the other.
Kiyo Katsuragi has just arrived at a special mansion in a remote area of the mountains. Said to be haunted, it has been bequeathed to her by a late grandmother who she has never met.

As if dealing with two supernatural beings isn't strange enough, Kiyo soon finds herself deemed to be Kuroboshi's 'bride'.

Although The Desert Prince is less innocent, both of these stories involve sexy men trying to flirt their way into the hearts of someone who resists. If you liked one (and don't mind shounen ai content) then you might enjoy the other.
In both of these series there is a powerful and wealthy male character who falls in love with someone they decide they *must* have. The plots revolve around them trying to make their 'true love' fall in love with them. If you enjoyed one, you'll like the other.
