All I can remember is that it takes place on several planet locations. There's two main characters; a female agent for a galactic government and a male who, if I remember correctly, lives in some kind of dome that gets attacked.

There aren't many details in the question (date read, language etc.) but I'll take a shot in the dark:

What about 'A Memory called Empire' by Arkady Martine?

The novel is about a female diplomat visiting the capital of a galactic empire. It includes an attack on the (male) Emperor's palace. The part that doesn't match is the dome structure but it's possible the palace is described that way; I don't remember that detail.
