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.
Queen of Swords by Katee Robert is a great fantasy romance. Ophelia is a head strong woman who doesn’t take crap from anyone. She has a strong sense of self-worth and knows what she can handle. She is a huge believer in what the cards say and had to learn the hard way what happens when you don’t follow the path chosen. So, when the cards tell her what she must do and who she must marry she dutifully follows the path set for her not truly understanding what it meant.
When Boone meets Ophelia he knows that he’s in trouble. They meet during what Ophelia believed to be a one-night stand and later found to be quite a bit more when she finds him on her door step. They have a strong attraction to each other even though they try to fight it. They are both living with their own regrets, complicated pasts and learning to deal with painful memories. Somehow coming together helps heal old wounds and they experience an incredible yet trying journey together.
Excellent read if you like sci-fi romance!
