Book Blurb (Goodreads):

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 whose bed she just spent a wild, drunken night in. 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.

My Review:

Boone is fighting to save his plant and people from his sadistic brother Kristin. His plans to kidnap Ophelia to after his brother plans to marry her go from bad to all hell breaks loose once  he finds out she’s the woman he had a one night stand with and he’s also falling in love with her as they spend more time together.
Ophelia and her mother are the last of their people, rare Diviners who can tell the future with tarot cards. So when the cards tell Ophelia she is to marry Boone’s brother, she is none too happy, but goes with it. The only problem is that she’s attracted to the princes brother Boone and that is not good considering she hates him or so she thinks.

There was action from beginning to the end of this story and I enjoyed that. I also thought the story and character development was well done. Ophelia and Boone were good together and I loved how they clashed, they were perfect for each other. They wanted to kill each other, but were too busy trying to fight their attraction; it made for a very additive and humorous story. I also enjoyed the world and creatures that Ms Roberts created, I am a fan of sci-fi and I love reading about different worlds and species, I think Katee Robert did a hell of a job.

Although I liked Ophelia & Boone, I enjoyed Boone’s sister Jenny. She was a riot and funny as all hell. She needs her own book, I think coming up with someone who can deal with her will be quite a challenge. 

My Rating:

4 Kisses (Romantic Kiss - Still Hawt...I enjoyed it)
