Lady Aurora and Lord Felix have been invited to a Lumis party, but Felix’ family is bitter rivals with the Lumises! This causes the family to go into overdrive planning for the two to have a spectacular debut. Felix’ mother and sister prepare them by gathering tons of information on nobles for them to memorize; a beautiful dress is commissioned from one of the kingdom’s most sought-after designers, and there is, of course, dancing lessons. While this started out as mostly a front, Felix begins to fall for Aurora, and his feelings come gushing out of him at the most unlikely of times - at the party in front of tons of nobles!
This is a pretty wholesome romance series so far, but the finaly chapter in this volume does have a creeper trying to take advantage of Aurora - he expresses his intent through veiled words rather that really trying anything, so this feels more like a representation of men using authority and power over women. I do appreciate that we have some feelings building up between the two leads, and it's the male lead declaring his feelings first - there are so many manga that follow the trope where the male lead has to be stoic until the love interest nearly loses all hope, so it'll be nice to see a romance develop a little differently in this story.
