The Lady and the Beast

Following a life of bloodshed and heartbreak, the great Empress Martina is reborn as Astina, the genius daughter of a humble count. But her peaceful world is shattered when bankruptcy forces her father to marry her off to the dangerous Archduke Atalenta. All of high society knows him as "Terriod the Beast" because of a family curse that turned him into a wild monster. Luckily, even the deadly beast of Atalenta is no match for the former empress's mighty sword. Everyone is shocked when the new archduchess tames her husband all too easily and takes over as the family head. No one's more surprised than Astina, however, when her casual kiss returns Terriod to his human form. Not only does he resemble her past life lover, but he has no memory of her from his wolf days. Despite these awkward circumstances, can the new power couple join hands to rule over the archduchy?

What a kyut doggo! This story so far can be split into three distinct sections, which each one having its own (somewhat separate) appeal. The introductory section (ch. 1-5) is the worst section. It's setting the stage, showing Astina's prodigious sword skills and intelligence which comes from fem being Empress Martina reincarnated. If you can get through that section, the second section (ch. 6-24) is very entertaining. It offers the hope of bestiality sex between a giant wolf and a human girl, and I'm not ashamed to admit that this hope added a very compelling piece of tension and interest to the story. Primarily though, it's super cute seeing the wolf in its domesticated form, acting all dog-like and stuff. This section also shows Astina taking power as the Grand Duchess and dealing with the corrupt vassals trying to take advantage of the Grand Duke being incapacitated. The third section (ch. 25-present) has only just started, but it has so far dealt with the Grand Duke returning to feir human form and being impressed with the work Astina has done. While I feel some disappointment that bestiality might now be off the table, I do enjoy the story potential of the Grand Duke waking up to find femself already married and having to get to know feir wife from that point onward. They've been slowly unveiling what actually went down back in Martina's lifetime, especially concerning the person fe loved, Theodore, and what led to Martina tearfully killing fem.
