Peek Inside Queen of Swords

Ophelia Leoni grits her teeth and boards the starship that comes to seal her fate - to marry the Prince of Hansarda. When she’s introduced to the ship’s commander, it’s none other than the gorgeous stranger she just spent a wild, drunken night with. Boone O’Keirna can’t be in the same room with Ophelia without wanting to throw her out an airlock–or into his bed. Her marrying his sadistic half-brother is not an option. But while the fates may never lie, the truth is sometimes hidden between them...

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.

Woohoo! If you are looking for a great sci-fi book then look no further this one has it all. Aliens, adventure, space, and one kick ass heroine!! Katee Robert has definitely grabbed my attention with her Sanctify series.

I admit, I had started this one a long time ago and put it down only a chapter in, because I didn't care for the fact that the book started off with the heroine climbing out of the hero's bed after a drunken one-night stand.

I should never have put it down.

There was tons of intrigue, betrayal, ang... ...more

I'll admit, the only reason I picked this book up was because of its title & cool cover, and for once, I didn't regret it.

Normally I'm put off by sci-fi books (which is weird, because I love good sci-fi movies), but Queen of Swords is different. Yes, there are spaceships, lasers & multip... ...more

The story starts out with Ophelia waking up in a strangers bed. She gets a call from her mother saying she needs to come home immediately. She sneaks out of the guys house and when she gets home she realizes she is in for a surprise. She finds out that she is being picked up and is going to marry... ...more

First Line - 'Ophelia couldn’t find her underwear. They had to have been around there somewhere. She’d been wearing them last night, after all, but she was hard pressed to find that small piece of silk amongst the other clothing scattered about the room.'

I don't often read this kind of sci-fi romance but I love Katee Robert's contemporary romance series so I jumped at the chance of reading Queen of Swords when I was offered a review copy.

So Sanctify 0.5 (prequel novella) was The High Priestess and I really enjoyed it so I was looking forward to reading this.

We start off with Ophelia having trouble finding her knickers (best opening EVER), can't run from a one night stand with no pants now, can we? Then her mum (Marianna) tell her... ...more

It was a page turner from the beginning, but some points the pacing was dragging the story and it was hard to follow. I believe I might have enjoyed it more if it were a novella.

Great scifi romance! I'll be posting the review on GraveTells soon and then here shortly after.

I’m a big “I’m in the mood for a good – blank – book”. So far this year it’s mostly been contemporary but there’s been a couple of Westerns thrown in the mix as well as a few Sci/Fi romances.

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.

This book was a great sci-fi read and it came to me at the perfect time.

Katee took this story beyond that with her unique plot and intriguing... ...more

Really, really enjoyed this one! I loved that there was a reason (beyond being in love) that made the heroine shift from being completely kick-ass and hard to being a little less so. I'm not going to say what it is, I'm not a spoiler gal, but it worked and wasn't gimmicky. I also loved... ...more

This is a new to me author, and I quite enjoyed the story a lot! At first, it took me a bit to get into since it’s a fantasy/sci-fi/romance and the beginning of a series, but after a chapter (maybe 2) I got the hang of it and became invested. Yes, it’s a bit predictable, but it was still good to... ...more

This was quite a space opera/adventure. It had a little bit of everything in it: space travel, paranormal, suspense, harlequin-esque secret baby, intrigue, contemporary drunk partying, daddy-issues, etc. I would be hard pressed to categorize this into only one genre.

About the author

NY Times Best Selling, USA Today Best Selling Author

Katee Robert

New York Times and USA Today bestselling 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. Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way, as it often does, and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
