Publisher's Summary

The Lily and the Crown is a lesbian scifi romance about daring to risk your heart with someone you shouldn’t.

Ariana “Ari” Geiker lives an isolated life on an imperial space station commanded by her father. The skilled, young botanist rarely leaves her living quarters, where she maintains an elaborate garden. When an imperious older woman is captured from a pirate ship and given to her as a slave, Ariana’s perfectly ordered life is thrown into chaos. Her nameless slave is watchful, intelligent, dangerous, and sexy, and seems to know an awful lot about tactics, star charts, and the dread, marauding pirate queen, Mir. 

What happens when the slave also reveals an expertise in seduction to her innocent mistress?

There needs to be a sixth star for performance!

While I enjoyed reading this in paperback in 2019, the experience was greatly heightened by what I now refer to as "The Dawe Effect." Narrator Angela Dawe is always outstanding, but I would venture to say she even raised it up a notch here. This is one of the benefits of having a great actor perform these books. It's like watching a film, but with your ears (if that makes sense.) While I squirmed in delight at the low, commanding voice she used for Assistant, her performance of introverted botanist Ariana Geiker was especially endearing.
I love Sinclair's books - which originated as The Devil Wears Prada fanfic and Ylva Publishing was smart enough to scoop her up. They are well written, intelligent and ridiculously sexy. Both this and the X Ingredient both have strong power play elements - and they never go quite the way you expect, which I appreciate. There was one scene in the book of a sexual nature that was on its way to making me uncomfortable, but before that could happen there was a shift. Beyond that, I absolutely loved it. And just so we're clear - this book's focus isn't sex so I don't want to give that impression, but it certainly plays a strong role.
These are two very interesting characters who are polar opposites in many ways, but fulfill something in the other that no one has before. If I could only choose one way to experience this book, it would definitely be on audio. Just when I think Dawe can't possibly get any better, she does. An all-time top 20 for me.

Angela Dawe & Roslyn Sinclair - my new favourite!

'The Lily and the Crown' has been one of my all-time favourite erotica age-gap romance novels! And Angela Dawe has just made it even more steamy and stunning! She made it more NSFW, if I may say so!

This is honestly totally worth the long wait!

Sexy & Entertaining, what more do you need?!

Let me start by saying I loved this book! I was instantly sad when I heard “epilogue”. The intimate scenes were impeccably written and I loved the unique dynamic they had, even seemingly problematic at times.
The narrator was fantastic, she always is.

The synopsis mentioned sci-fi so I was expecting more world building. There was hardly any description of the space ship, station, or planets. Was this the future or an alternate universe?
I’m only critical of this because I think world building would’ve taken this book to soaring heights as sci-fi/romance genre. The story itself is fantastic.

Highly entertaining and HOT!

Superb!

Such a story of power and patience and political worlds for improvement! Roslyn Sinclair deftly guides the reader in two realities, revealing the crucial gray between the black and white.
Angela Dawe breathes depth of character with her narration, letting personalities shine through a moment’s hesitation or trailing words, enriching (never overpowering) Sinclair’s fantastic tale.

Very different

This wasn’t my typical kind of book (science fiction) but it was nice to step out of my norm. I liked the story, but it took me a while to decide as I was listening. The narrator was great and the romance got better throughout the book. I’m just not really into space ship stories. I’m still glad I listened to it.

Fantastic story & performance

I loved this book so much and was therefore VERY excited when I heard an audiobook was released. Angela Dawe narrated it so perfectly. This is one I’ll listen to again & again.

A must read

While I don't usually enjoy Sci-Fi, this was an excellent read. The characters were lovely, and while there was an air of mystery, it was easy to see how the story would unfold, and how the characters would grow.
Really enjoyed the dynamic between the two.
