Suji Kim

Most fairytales end with a wedding and a happily-ever-after—but this is no fairytale. The first volume of Suji Kim's hit webnovel, now available in English print for the first time.
 
Lady Maximilian is the daughter of the powerful Duke Croyso, but she is rarely allowed outside her family’s sprawling castle for fear her stutter will tarnish their noble name. When she is forced to marry Sir Riftan, a low-born knight caught in one of her father’s schemes, Maxi doesn’t dare hope for happiness, let alone love. Her stumbling communication and his gruff manner sour their relationship before it can begin, and Riftan leaves without a word the morning after their vows are exchanged.

Now, three years after their disastrous wedding night, Riftan has returned a war hero. To Maxi’s surprise, despite rumors that he was offered marriage to Princess Agnes, a beautiful and renowned sorceress, Riftan still wants Maxi for his wife. And when he comes to claim her, that longing becomes a desire that bewilders Maxi, even as she is overcome by the scorching heat Riftan’s presence ignites within her. As she learns to navigate the intricacies of her new life, Maxi will find herself and her courage, and discover that she is anything but powerless.

A Letter from the Inklore Team

First and foremost, thank you. Inklore is for our readers—in a lot of ways, it’s by our readers—and without them, we never would have had the chance to build this imprint. Our readers have spent years championing stories and creators from around the world that are beloved by so many people, including those of us here at Inklore. 

At its core, being a fan of something means sharing it with as many people as possible. We take what we love and make it big. If you’ve ever spent hours online hunting down the novel that one drama was based on, or the perfect fanfic to scratch the itch of your latest obsession, you’re in the right place.

Inklore is an imprint of Random House Worlds that publishes the best in manga, manhwa, manhua, webcomics, and graphic novels for adults, both young and young-at-heart. Pop culture enthusiasts looking for vibrant, transportive visual storytelling that is emotionally intelligent and indulgent will find a catalogue of the newest, most enticing stories here at Inklore. 

With stunning creators whose work is full of chemistry, escapism, and authenticity, we hope to inspire keyboard-smashing, AO3 ship tags, fanart, and cosplay designs. We aspire for every series to make readers feel like a kid under the covers with a flashlight again, trying to squeeze in one more chapter before sleep. Our incredible writers, artists, and world-builders will bring readers magic, romance, thrills, chills, and the very best slices of the messiest lives. Also, swoopy hair. 

Thank you again for coming with us on this adventure. We are so excited to welcome all of you! 

Best,

The Inklore Team
