I think I am the only who is cheering for Gus Brown. Poor him. The author didn't even let him appear in the ending.

It's true, it happens a lot. I myself prefer the manga as well though, the stories from the Harlequin manga I've read so far just aren't worth taking multiple hours to read, but in a single manga volume of about half an hour the story is often quite enjoyable and it makes you more willing to forgive the flaws. I tend to read them instead of watching romantic movies, since I like manga better. I doubt I'm going to read this one though, I like the others a lot because they are so short (I read them on my way to University as light entertainment), with the length of this one I might as well read the original book :(

 

I'm glad I'm not the only one hunting down trying to read all of the Harlequin manga because of the sheer entertainment value. 

 

Though, by "entertainment value" I mean I read them late at night just to laugh my heart out. I think I did read a good one in over 10 Harlequins I read so far. (Still better than romance novels that make me cringe so hard at the stupid I can't even laugh.)

So who here who reads this manga also thinks that Mischief Jones sounds like a porn name?

Another chapter released!  Just one more chapter to go!

Thanks for the new chapters. but I must admit after the enjoyable and interesting story gets so bad after ch.50. That I facepalm about as often as many pages there are. I'd say its the dumbest thing I've ever read, but unfortunately I've seen worse.

2 Chapters of Gold!  Part of our JShoujo 4th Anniversary release, enjoy folks.  :)

More Gold...  Enjoy...  :)

Chapter 53 comments--You know what would be cool, if those guys in the shadow proved to be pretty good guys. Just b/c the neighborhood is rumored to be bad doesn't mean that all the people that live there have to be bad =l

New chapter update...  Whew, just a few chapters left.

Another release... Just one more volume to go!
New chapter out, Happy Holidays.

It actually happens quite a bit in the Josei demographic. Many of the stories in Harlequin, for example, are based on romance novels/novella/novelettes/stories by Western (American, European) authors and are simply illustrated by a mangaka. It's a way of retelling the story in a visual form without needing to think up their own plot, and Japanese women tend to prefer reading the manga over a translated version in a literary format having grown up reading shoujo manga rather than stories as western women do.
I haven't read the manga, nor do I plan to do so, however I felt the urge to make an unnecessary comment on how strange I find the idea, of making a manga out of an American writer's romance novel.
