Synopsis for I'm in Love with the Villainess

Office worker Rei Oohashi wakes up one day to find herself as Rae Taylor, the heroine of her favorite otome game, Revolution. Being surrounded by handsome men vying for her attention would be every girl's dream, but that's not the case with Rae. None of them can compare to the villain Claire François, whose blonde, drilled locks only add to her haughty and irresistible charm.

In the original story, the heroine is harassed and intimidated by Claire, resulting in her becoming close with male love interests. But Rae has no intention of pursuing any of the men; his heart goes out to Claire herself. Unaccustomed to receiving affection, Claire is at the mercy of Rae's endless teasing. Using the power of true love, can Rae successfully convey her feelings to the villain?
