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.
I am huge of science fiction and romance, so when I find a book that can combine the two, I am of course in seventh heaven. Queen of Swords is a fun story full of intergalactic adventures and happy endings. I really really really liked Queen of Swords. This book was good, it makes me want to dance with glee.
Queen of Sword is a swash buckler sci fi romance for sci fans, who like things like Farscape and Star Wars. This book is about a daughter of a gunrunner down on her luck and the cocky prince who sweeps in to stop her from marrying his brother. When it kicked off with sexy fun times I knew I was going to be in for one heck of a ride. The action just continued from there, from a damsel who saves her man to a fight to the death. I like the world building. I loved this universe full of all different types of creatures. There were beautiful males with fur and claws, sassy albinos, and diviners with the powers of goddess. I loved the relationship between Boone and Ophelia. I liked that Boone is such an alpha male that he could give Han Solo a run for his money. Most of all I liked that Ophelia is a spitfire who can give as well as she gets. Ophelia is not the type to let an alpha male run all over her. I like that they have to save each other both figuratively and literally.
I cannot stress how good this book is and how much I liked it. I have already bought the next book in the Sanctify series. It stars Jenny the little sister, or hellion, of Boone. I loved Jenny and can’t wait to see what shenanigans await her. I give Queen of Swords four stars because this book most definitely left me on a nice cloud of happy!
