after being isekaid the mc has to deal with being the fiance of the crown prince.

for queen with a scalpel/lady with a lamp she isekaid to a different world where she became a doctor and she once again isekaid to her original world, for justice of a villainous woman she is isekaid to a novel.

so with knowledge of some events with the future along with the skills they have from their previous lives, they fight for their survival and thus their achievements keep stacking up. 

they also share the same fate of one day becoming the queen.

Villainess in Love

Villainess in Love

So I’ve become Yunifer Magnolia, the villainess who’s crazed with jealousy that Duke Ishid Lucrenze, the devastatingly handsome hero, has eyes only for Raelle, Yunifer’s best friend. Yunifer torments Raelle so much that Yunifer’s killed off at the end. But... I’M Yunifer now. UGH! Good news is, I’ve reincarnated a year before her tragic end, so there’s time to make sure Ishid and Raelle have a fairy tale ending (and I stay alive). Bad news is, I got drunk and woke up with Ishid next to me. Crap.

Not really similar plot wise but both female leads are villianesses with some sort of knowledge surrounding how the plot is meant to play out and were not originally meant to be the FL and even were the OG villianesses of their respective stories. Through the power of their newly changed personality they make the male lead totally head over heels for them. Both also have dark haired male leads.
