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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Robert's Sanctify series kicks off in high gear. Readers will root for the alpha hero, whose determination is easily matched by spunky, gritty Ophelia." -RT Book Reviews

"Intricate world-building, a wounded hero, and a fabulous love story. Queen of Swords is Sci-fi romance at its best!" -Nina Croft, bestselling author of the Blood Hunter series

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. (Mar.)

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.
