I'm back again with another delightful book from Therese Beharrie. This time it's the second book in the Royal Duet series, 'Falling For His Convenient Queen.' Once again, this duet is up for grabs, thanks to Therese, so make sure you read on to find out what question you need to answer, in the comments, for your chance to win. 

This story, follows on from where we left off in 'United by their Royal baby.' Princess Nalini is determined to show her mother and grandmother that she isn't the "problem child" that they think she is any longer. She's made a decision that will help her kingdom, one that will hopefully show them that she's become a responsible adult. That decision was to accept the marriage of convenience offered to her by King Zacchaeus, in order to secure the alliance between their kingdoms. While Nalini's past might make her wary of love, she soon discovers that with the right person, it's impossible not to believe in romance. She begins to find her spark again, while also helping King Zacchaeus find his happiness.

It was hard for me not to fall in love with these two wonderful characters. I felt like i'd known them forever, after only reading a couple of chapters. Both of them were equally as strong willed and stood out as beautiful souls. They were both suffering from family problems and wanted to find themselves again and be happy with who they had grown to become, regardless of how their families made them feel. They learnt together that the past doesn't have to define you, if you have learnt your lessons and are stronger now because of it. It was lovely to see how Nalini and Zacchaeus both came to that conclusion together and that by each of them accepting the other for who they were, it helped them shed that guilt and grip they had on who they had been. 

The dialogue and interactions between the two were addictive. It was fun, flirty and irresistible. I loved it when they let their guards down and allowed their chemistry to take over. Nalini could be cute and flirty, while Zacchaeus was just downright sexy. The relationship, even through it's ups and downs, sparkled and made their story a joy to read. That and the fact that I could get lost in the castle and it's gardens, made me happy. Just like with the first book in this series, the setting really captures your imagination. I love picturing the kingdoms, the land and the people. It gives the stories a fairy-tale quality, while simultaneously touching on very realistic, modern day topics. 

If you are looking for a break or are in need of a castle and a good helping of romance, I highly recommend this series from Therese Beharrie! The fantastic news is, Therese is giving away another duet! All you have to do is answer in the comments below:

  1. OK Cupid. But he lives three blocks away. We both thought the other one lived on the opposite side of the city but we realised on our first date and ended up walking home together.

  2. I met my husband at a residential writing workshop. I came from a different part of the country to attend the 6-week workshop; he came from a different country entirely; I ended up getting on a plan 10 months later and moving to Europe to be with him! And I've never regretted it. :)

  3. I met mine at Sixth Form College. He played Paris Prince of Troy dressed in a boiler suit and I played a 'lady of the night' in an updated version of La Belle Helene by Offenbach.

  4. I’m still single but I met my one great love while working. He used to come to the store I worked in as a cashier and wait for me to ring up his goods even if I had a queue.

  5. In grad school. I talked to him at a party in the first week, and then he walked in to one of my classes and I remember thinking "oh, look, the cute boy's here." (Now the cute boy is ALWAYS here!)

  6. I met my husband when a mutual friend of ours brought him when he picked me up to take me out to the movies since I was depressed that my dad was ill. My future husband was going to pick up his girlfriend and then we were all going to go out. Little did I know then that his relationship was on the rocks and that he’d been trying to break it off with said girlfriend, who didn’t want to break up with him. After we all spent time together that night, he wound up finally breaking ties with the girl and shortly thereafter we started dating and got married a year later. We’ve been happily married for 23 years. ( :
