Seven Seas Licenses The Villainess and the Demon Knight Light Novel Series (Steamship Imprint)

(May 22, 2024) – Seven Seas Entertainment is excited to announce, through its Steamship imprint dedicated to sexy romance for women, the license acquisition of the light novel series The Villainess and the Demon Knight by Nekota and Asahiko. This steamy isekai follows an unfortunate villainess and the deranged knight who's obsessed with her—inspired the hit manga also available from Seven Seas!

Being reincarnated as an otome game villainess is hard enough, but fate sure didn't hold back on stacking the odds against Cecilia. Her engagement is broken off, the heroine is harassing her, and she's forced to work in a brothel! To make matters worse, her first customer is none other than the heroine's childhood friend and debauched leader of the Imperial Guard, Duke Lucas Herbst. Terrified, Cecilia shares an intense night with him, only to wake up the next day in his mansion—marked as his fiancée?! Bound to this unhinged knight, the troubled villainess must endure his obsessive love. But is his intoxicating affection a curse...or is it a blessing in disguise?

The Villainess and the Demon Knight (Light Novel) Vol. 1 will be released for the first time in the English language in October 2024 for $15.99 USA / $19.99 CAN, with the series available in single large-trim editions as part of Seven Seas' Steamship imprint. Ebook editions will also be available (early) on digital platforms.
