Seven Seas describes the story as: 

Natsumi, also known as “Ham-chan,” hustles at a demanding office job like a hamster running in a wheel. Meanwhile, her boss Samejima is more like a shark. He’s handsome, sure, but he’s also imposing and scary…at least, until he confesses his feelings for her?! Natsumi is a little overwhelmed at seeing a vulnerable side to this gigantic man, especially since she doesn’t have a lot of experience in the love department, but she’s secretly thrilled to see more. Together, this big boss with a carnivorous appetite and the smaller woman who’s hungry for his love are ready to unleash their wild sides!

I Can’t Refuse S is a manga series written and illustrated by Ai Hibiki about a young woman learning the erotic arts from a handsome butler. It was serialized on Mobile Flower from November 20, 2017 to October 20, 2019. Six tankoubon volumes have been released in total as of January 2020.

Seven Seas describes the I Can’t Refuse S manga as: 

Miku is in a bind: her father has taken on too much debt, subjecting her family to so much work and stress that now her mother has fallen ill. Miku is willing to do what it takes to help her family, so she offers to become a wealthy benefactor’s mistress to raise the cash they need! Unfortunately, that alone isn’t enough—the wealthy man has a preference for women who are experienced in bed, and Miku is anything but. That’s when the man’s butler, Kamishiro, steps in. The gorgeous but sharp-tongued Kamishiro is blunt: he says he’s been sent to train Miku in the sexual arts. Under his hot and heavy tutelage, can Miku become experienced enough to inflame the desire of any man…including her teacher?

Revenge: Kaedama Kon is a manga written and illustrated by Sayo Momota. It follows the scandalous drama of a pair of twisted sisters who vie for romance through heated deception. Momoto launched the series in Shogakukan’s Cheese! magazine on August 1, 2020 until February 5, 2021. Four tankoubon volumes have been released as of March 2022.

The manga will be released in North America in November 2023 as single large-trim editions under the Steamship imprint.

The story is described by Seven Seas as: 

Beautiful, charismatic Mitsuki has it all. She’s got so much, in fact, that she sends her more timid sister Tsukiko on dates disguised as her so Mitsuki doesn’t miss out on other things. But one such body swap backfires after Mitsuki gets engaged: Mitsuki asks Tsukiko to stand in for her at a wedding planning meeting, and Tsukiko ends up falling into bed with Mitsuki’s groom-to-be! Tired of playing second fiddle to her beautiful sister, Tsukiko decides to take something for herself for a change. In this startling tale of intrigue and romance, revenge is a dish best served steaming hot!

Loyal Soldier, Lustful Beast is a light novel written by Sumire Saiga and illustrated by Saya Shirosaki. The story follows the forbidden love affair between a lovestruck soldier and the king’s concubine. A single physical volume was released in Japan on December 3, 2020.

One day out of the blue, noblewoman Giselle is summoned to serve as the king’s prized concubine. Alas, her heart belongs to another man: Wallace, a former slave and the soldier who saved her brother’s life. Wallace worships the ground Giselle walks on and attends to her every need as her manservant. Much as Giselle mourns the line drawn between them, her days with Wallace are filled with bliss. Yet the king’s word is absolute, so Giselle decides to give up on her paramour. Then, late one night, Wallace steals into her room in the palace. His gaze is desperate and hungry as he watches her. She knows it’s a crime to spend the night with him…but can she help herself?
