Overview

When the cards tell Ophelia Leoni she's supposed to marry the Prince of Hansarda, the gunrunner grits her teeth and boards the starship that comes for her. It doesn't matter if the ship's commander is the gorgeous stranger she just spent a wild, drunken night with. As a Diviner, she’s painfully aware the cards don't lie. Ever.

Boone O’Keirna knows Ophelia is trouble the second he sees the way she moves. Not about to let the deadly little hellcat marry his sadistic half-brother, Boone pretends to be the Prince’s emissary and kidnaps Ophelia. Too bad they can’t be in the same room without him wanting to throw her out an airlock–or into bed.

Even as they fight each other–and their explosive attraction–Ophelia and Boone sense something is wrong. Too much is going their way. Soon, they realize while the cards may never lie, the truth is sometimes hidden between them...and the future king of Hansarda is not one to take defeat lying down.

Publishers Weekly
Frantic feuding, fussing, and fighting dominate the second Sanctify sci-fi romance (after The High Priestess). Diviner Ophelia Leoni has an under-the-influence one-night stand with delicious smuggler Boone O’Keirna. Already hurting from losing her spacecraft and crew to the evil planet-gobbling fundamentalistic Sanctifiers, who are bent on wiping out all her prophetic kind, Ophelia now has to contend with pregnancy as well as Boone’s plans to use her as a pawn in his struggle against his wicked half-brother, Kristian. Ophelia battles conniving alien traitors and Sanctify torturers to save Boone between minutely described bouts of morning sickness and queasily interrupted passionate interludes. Despite some unusual role reversals, Robert’s repetitive high schoolish lingo, flat characters and settings, and a stale, pedestrian plot will attract neither romance readers nor science fiction fans.

Meet the Author


Katee Robert learned to tell stories at her Grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back. Now living in Eastern Washington, she spends her time—in between ogling men and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse—writing speculative romance novels.

    I'm not a reader of sci-fi romances, this is new territory for m

    I'm not a reader of sci-fi romances, this is new territory for me but I've read Katee Robert's Brazen offerings so when I was offered the chance to read Queen of Swords for review, I grabbed the chance.

    If you've read the synopsis you will have a good idea at where the book is going. Boone is sexy, witty and protective, Ophelia independent and feisty and whilst they can fight & spar against each other, they can't deny their attraction or chemistry and this leads to some explosive passion. But alongside this runs the story of Boone's plight to keep those closest to him safe from the hands of his sadistic evil brother and it's this that keeps you guessing what will happen. And I loved that it was told from both their POV; I love to get in a male characters head.

    With secondary characters to love and to hate, I liked it but I have to confess that sci-fi isn't at the top of of my favourite list; odd considering I like my sci-fi on screen! But I liked that it was different to what I usually read yet had had the passion, intimacy, fight, frustration and humour that I love in a romance. Whilst I can't compare to anything in this genre because this is my maiden voyage, once I got into it, it was a good read and I will likely read more of this genre in the future.

    3.5 stars

    I'm going to admit i had a little trouble getting this one start

    I'm going to admit i had a little trouble getting this one started but once i hit the first sex scene which is is fairly close to the beginning of the book i was hooked. And i loved the uniqueness of the premise behind the story.  As someone who has been known to do a tarot reading every now and again i loved the idea of the Diviner species.

    The chemistry between Ophelia and Boone was fun and sexy and definitely kept me turning the pages.

    The only thing that drove me absolutely nuts about this book and i'm  not sure whether it was my tablet or the version of the ARC but the graphics at the beginning of each chapter would cause my reader to crash which made it very hard to get a good flow on with my reading.

    Overall i give this book 4.5 out of 5 Going to read the prequel now until i can get my hands on the next book in the series.

    The first book in the new science fiction romance is a thrilling

    The first book in the new science fiction romance is a thrilling and adventurous read.  Pretending to be the Prince’s emissary, Boone O’Keirna kidnaps the deadly hellcat Ophelia Leoni to keep her from marrying his sadistic half brother.  Too bad they can’t be in the same room without him wanting to throw her out the airlock, but even as they fight each other and their explosive attraction, the future King of Hansarda is not one to take defeat lying down.
    The fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps readers on their toes with lots of action, suspense, drama and romance.  The author brings her story to life with well written scenes and events that capture the imagination and anticipation builds throughout the story as the Prince gets closer to getting what he wants and the danger escalates.  The characters are strong, compelling, easily related to and grab the reader’s attention from the very beginning.
    The attraction between Ophelia and Boone is very explosive and the sex scenes are scorching, but the relationship has some heavy duty obstacles in the way, lucky for them they do have the Lady on their side.  The reader can’t help but get caught up in their story as it is full of drama, danger, snarky and antagonistic dialogue, betrayals, rescues and saving a kingdom.
    The author has created a fantastic action filled story that spans galaxies and keeps readers on the edge of their seat with surprising twists and lots of captivating characters. The hero and heroine of this one really bring this story to vibrant life and draw the reader deeper into the story; they are fun and ensure there is never a dull moment.  I was totally caught up in this story from the beginning and enthralled to the very end and I am looking forward to reading the next one.

    Review:




    Love, love, love this new series by Katee Roberts!  




    My inner nerd-girl was in heaven when I read this new Sci-Fi Romance.




    I thought the Author did a great job of world building and bringing me into the story and captivating my attention.  It almost makes me feel like being in a Star Wars type of epic adventure, but of the more passionate and sexy kind!   The characters awesome  and Ophelia and Boone were smokin' together!  I loved the sided characters too, Jenny and Cole were two that stuck with me the most.  I loved the witty banter and fasted paced story.  I also, liked the two person POV that Ms. Roberts used I thought it enhanced my getting to know the characters and relating to them.




    Overall, an awesome, epic sci-fi adventure, with sexiness and action!




    I so cannot wait for the next story which according to Goodreads is about Jenny.

    Not my cup of tea

    For some reason this wasn't as easy of a read as some of her other books have been for me. However she is a new writer, so I expect for her books to get better.

    I liked it but too short

    The story and characters were good and enjoyable. But because i was enjoying the book, i was very disapointed when it ended abruptly. There should be another book to add onto this story. I also think the ebook should cost less.
