Story: I enjoyed the plot/summary a lot. I will say there are some things that are predictable, regarding love rivals and jealousy, but what yaoi book haven't you see these types of situations. hehe I could certainly look past the predictable aspectts of it just as long as its a good story, you know?

Art: Even for very little art in the book, you really didn't need that much art considering Kyoiko Akitsu was very descriptive as she wrote. I did enjoy what illustrations were found in the book that helped support some of the more dramatic scenes. There was only one illustration in color towards read more

Lighter reading with the typical shy romance beginning, deepening into love after a few twists, turns, and flares of jealous temper from Lord Edward's cousin, Angelica, who wished to marry him, yet Edward has set up an arrangement with a Japanese foreign theatre student named Satsuki.

The story premise is good, but it becomes a little uneven once dialogue begins for Satsuki is rather shy and quiet, then suddenly becomes bold and challenging, and it just didn't seem very subtle. The dialogue of the central characters of Neville, Edward and Satsuki, also called May, all changed too suddenly from scene to scene. Really out of character read more

Story: 7/10

A Promise of Romance is a very (well maybe a little) cliche story. I didn't mean it in a bad way though. In fact, I loved cliche stories myself.

You know, a love story between a rich and a commoner. Though this one is a male to male pairing.

Most of the scenes were really predictable though. Getting in a fake engagement contract, rich person paying the commoner for the deal, both parties falling in love with each other. Something like that.

Art: 7/10

It was drawn by one of my fave mangaka, Miyagi Touko-sensei. The art is nice but considering that this novel was written and drawn read more
