It was quite clear Ryuki was in love with Shurei but Shurei I am not too sure about Shurei.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Shuurei from the begining wanted to achieve something big and with Ryuki's help she was able governor test which women were not allowed to take and became co-governor of Sa province. If I remeber correctly she had an interest in Seiran her adopted brother who later is known to be also Ryuki's older half brother. Seiran known Shurei since she was a child and is very protective of Shurei. I think it ends after Shurei stabilizes Sa province as co-governor and the one by her side at the time is Seiran. This is assuming the anime covered all the novels before hand. If not it covered atleast 13-14 novels. Manga version still has a long way to go.

It's complex. There is romance between Ryuuki and Shurei, but she can't have children, so she pushes him away. Sorry if that's a spoiler, but that's piece of the plot - Why she feels Ryuuki should give up on her and marry someone else. But, I read a translation of a recent light novel. She did tell Ryuuki about it and she agreed to marry him, but he would have to agree to have a concubine have his heir. Over the series, she does have many men after her affections, but she ignores them all - pretty much.

Found the exact answer to your question :

in the 18th novel, Shuurei will eventually marry Ryuuki. The next year it reads that she will die in childbith ; she was only 30 years old...

Not really considering what she what she wanted to achieve and what she achieved before then.

She became a government official which was not given to females through the same means any male would achieve it. Using all her knowledge she passed the test for government officials (if I remeber correctly it was a very very good score) proving to everyone women are just as capable.

Just wondering but how closely does the manga follow the novel? Is it possible to have a different ending for the manga?
