I’m currently writing a sequel to one of my previous stores. My main character got herself tangled in a civil war over the throne, after the previous king died without successor. Along the way she met a potential heir to the crown (distant relative of the previous king), they fell in love and ended up saving the whole country from the evil sorcerer and ended the succession crisis by putting this guy on the throne. Since she herself was barren and a commoner, my main character arranged a marriage between said distant relative and the previous king’s former wife (who was actually the one ruling the country behind her husband’s back), but still stayed as this guy’s lover on a said. All parties involved agreed for this arrangement. This story takes place a year after these events. The queen is now pregnant with king’s first baby. My character stays around as the king’s advisor and a high ranked general in his army. While I have no problem writing king and my character (hidden lovers, who know there may be more important things one day that will force them to separate), king and his new wife (they respect each other), I have problem writing a relationship between my character and the queen. I don’t want to make them bitter enemies or rivals. I would prefer to give them a working, somehow friendly relationship.
