Jenny has been assigned to go pick up the inventor, Mac, and protect him from Sanctify. She thought it was going to be an easy mission, but she didn't count on the blazing hot attraction the two of them would experience. And I mean blazing hot. Jenny protects herself by making it out to be a casual sex thing between them, but deep down they both know it is so much more.
I fell in love with Jenny in Queen of Swords and couldn't wait to read her story. She is super smart, courageous, and loves those around her big enough that she would do anything to protect them. She also has a vulnerability that she often uses her snarky wittiness to hide. Mac is just so perfect for her as he totally sees through all of that and gets her. She can let down the mask and share her heart with him and he is there to listen and support her. I loved watching this tough chick fall in hearts and flowers love with her nerdy inventor soul mate.
The adventure they were on together rocked too. Knowing that someone on the inside had betrayed them, but not sure who it was. I have to admit that I was shocked at who and why.
We do get a peek into what life is like for Boone and Ophelia as well too which was a sweet bonus.
I LOVED Queen of Swords!
I give it 5 hearts!
About the Book
When Jenny O’Keirna gets a chance to slip her older brother’s leash, she jumps at it, even if it means playing babysitter to a too-smart-for-his-own-good inventor. She’s not expecting the attraction that sparks between them—or that Sanctify is just as desperate to take him for their own.
Never in Mac Flannery’s wildest dreams did he imagine Jenny would be the one sent for him. He sees beyond the mad grin the sister of Hansarda’s new king presents to the world, and that combination of vulnerability and wicked humor is a siren call he can’t resist.
But Sanctify is always three steps ahead of them. On the run—and unable to keep their hands off each other—Jenny and Mac devise an insane plan: kidnap the leader of Sanctify, and stop this war once and for all. Unfortunately, they’ve just played right into his hands…
About 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.
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.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn't want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time--when not lost in Far Reach worlds--playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
