User Reviews For: The Prince's Nine-Month Scandal
The manga must differ greatly from the original novel because the title has NOTHING whatsoever to do with the story. Secretary Natalie and princess Valentina meet by chance and, after noticing their identical looks (the twist is extremely obvious) and exchanging stories of their woes, they agree to swap places for a month. This story follows Natalie as she adjusts to living as a princess and falls in love with Valentina's arranged fianc辿 Rodolfo, a playboy prince who wastes his time skirt chasing and thrill seeking to escape the pressures of having (and failing) to live up to being future king in place of his late brother. The best scene imo is when Natalie first meets Rodolfo, she calls him out on his "double standards" and demands that she be allowed to sleep around if he will! It clearly impresses him as well since he immediately falls in love with her (and her soon after, making their love feel very shallow). I wish there was a bit more substance to their relationship, but oh well.
