Legend says that fated lovers are bound together by an invisible red thread. Most people think it's superstition, but 17-year-old Chiko knows better -- she can see them! In this latest adventure, the ever-romantic Chiko believes her love for Akeo could never be tarnished, but meeting Nadeshiko may burn it to a crisp! As she struggles to avoid temptation and keep one step ahead of Nadeshiko's efforts to destroy her, Chiko stumbles onto the dark history of the Myoonji family, and learns that her dear Akeo-sensei may not be the virtuous man she adores. Mick Takeuchi has become a fan favorite for her expert blend of fantasy, teen angst, and romance in wildly popular series like A Wise Man Sleeps. Those qualities are also evident throughout Bound Beauty Vol. 4, making it one of her most exciting productions.
