Luke knows his return to Samar City will bring problems, but he never expected the obstacles he ends up facing.  His only hope is his husband Conall but Conall isn’t happy being on land, which leaves Luke wondering if he’s made the right choice to come home. 

A Queen’s Dowry is the sequel to A King’s Ransom which means these books must be read in order.  When A Queen’s Dowry begins, Luke and Conall are traveling to Samar City, with plans of Luke regaining the throne.  Anyone who has ever watched a pirate movie knows that this is easier said than done.  While Addy, Luke’s sister, is happy to have her brother returned to her, others are not as thrilled.  Not only does the young royal have to find out who wants him gone, but he must also deal with the arrival of Nume, the young lady he was supposed to marry. 

There are a lot of little twists in this story that keep it interesting.  Not only do the readers have the ongoing relationship between Luke and Conall, which continues to heat up the pages, but also the budding relationship between Addy and Nume.  These couples are intense but not everything runs smoothly, especially when the subject of Luke producing an heir is raised.  I really felt for both couples at this point, and while the reasoning behind the need for an heir is understandable, the fact that Nume must become pregnant does cause problems, which is also understandable. 

If you loved the first story, you are sure to love, A Queen’s Dowry.  The author’s ability to keep the reader’s interest from beginning to end is sure to make this book a hit with many of her fans, as well as earn her some new ones.
