I've finished "The Heiress and the Chauffeur Vol. 1" by Keiko Ishihara.
At an all-girls school during the Taisho era in Japan, rumors swirl that heiress Sayaka Yoshimura is having a forbidden love affair with her chauffeur, Shinobu Narutaki! Sayaka scoffs at the rumors, but could a romance between master and servant actually be brewing?
Sayaka wears a crimson ribbon that signals she is at the top of her class, and her classmates all revere her. So when Narutaki ignores decorum and breaks school rules to protect Sayaka, will she stand by him or dismiss him as the school demands?

I highly recommend this manga if you like a unconventional love story between two different classes who have a strong tie to each other.
I really enjoyed that Shinobu wasn't your usual stuffy chauffeur instead he loved sweets and ate them when gifted, was popular with the female crowd young and old, was dishiveled with a loose tie and was very devoted to Sayaka. I'm glad that he stood up and protected her against anyone!
I was glad that Sayaka didn't let her lame foot detour her from anything.
