Fun story about a very young woman in old Japan (maybe 19th century?). Her brother is a gambler and she has to look after all the children he randomly adopts. When money gets unbearably tight, she decides to sell herself to pay their debts and ends up suddenly married to a rich, handsome young man who makes her promise that in exchange for marrying him, she will "throw all her love away."

Decent art. The heroine's design is interesting. At first it bothered me that even when she was all fancied up, she looked so plain and childish. But at times, you see her in full "aristocratic lady" gear, and then for those brief moments she'll look really stunning. Anyway, it's a good read.
