    Okay read,I usu like this author's books.The best way for me to describe her writing is lyrical.But this book had a huge OTT moment when towards the end at the marriage ceremony,the hero goes all " bollywood" and starts singing to the heroine complete with mic,and colorfull dressed dancers in native dress with spotlight included.Felt like I was watching an Indian movie where the characters break out in song and dance at any given moment.

    This warm and winsome romance is really the journey of two people who never expected to be linked in any way but who both found friendship to be deeply satisfying. It is not about a king, but rather about a wealthy financier who has lived in the United States for years but longs to make his Middle Eastern country his permanent home. Yet he has no citizenship there, and his best friend, the ruler of his country, wants him as his minister of finance. Marrying a princess of that nation would "grease the skids" so to speak. Yet once he comes to know Kanza (which means treasure in Arabic) he is besotted but too fearful of letting her know his feelings until he has established himself in her life as a close friend. It is a wonderful story that stands in marked contrast to the "love at first site" kinds of romances It is another really great story from an author who is quickly becoming one of my favorites.

    Molto, molto bello. Ha tutto quello che desidero in un romanzo: un'eroina forte e capace di non farsi sconvolgere dalle emozioni, un eroe maschile disposto a rinunciare ai suoi sogni per lei, una trama che regge.La parte che ho amato di più: penso che sia la PRIMA volta che un'eroina, quando capisce che l'inizio del suo matrimonio è stato "manipolato" si ferma, nonostante il panico e i dubbi, fa un onesto esame della situazione, metta da parte l'orgoglio e dice "si ma adesso è chiaro dai fatti che mi ama". Quasi cadevo dal letto quando ho letto questa frase. Questa donna (la scrittrice) è il mio nuovo mito.Cosa non mi è piaciuto: Lui che si mette a cantare al matrimonio. Che americanata! E non siamo neppure in America! Cattivo gusto portami via. Toglie mezza stella al voto finale, se no il libro era perfetto.Si ringrazia NetGalley per la gentile preview!Voto: 4,5 stelle

    Aram missed the country he considered ‘home’ and would love to go back. He also wanted to help his sister and brother-in-law (who was also his friend – We read their story in the first story of the Pride of Zohayd trilogy – To Tame a Sheikh) but in order to do so he would have to become a royal and a citizen of the country. Shaheen (friend/brother-in-law) suggests a marriage with Princess Kanza who Aram knew many years ago when she was a teenager and knew her as ‘Kanza the Monster’. Aram maintains that he does not want to be tied to that woman and refuses to even meet with her but his sister has other ideas and puts her matchmaking skills to work.Everyone knows that I love my sheikhs and sexy Alpha desert warriors and am always saying that nobody can write them like Olivia Gates….So obviously I love this author who is an auto-buy for me and it pains me to say that I really didn’t like this one, I nearly shouted ‘uncle’ several times and gave in but I hate doing that so persevered. I really don’t like writing bad reviews as I feel that I am disrespecting the author so it feels doubly worse in this case, possibly one of the reasons that I am so disappointed in this story is because it was written by Ms Gates and therefore my expectations were high….I think maybe that is the case as so far it seems to have received an extremely high rating and any reviews are glowing therefore I seem to be in the minority :(I struggled with what rating to give and felt that it didn't quite deserve a 1 star as there were some good parts of the story hence the reason I did give it 2 stars.The basis of the story was ok, so even though it has been done many many times before that wasn’t what put me it off. There were several things that did but the main ones were that as well as not feeling any connection to the characters I didn’t feel any between them either and to be honest I am not sure I even liked them. The story was told over several months and as it is a short story there are not enough pages to tell us everything so felt like we only got snippets here and missed out on a lot of events leading to the end, and then what we did get was just so sickly sweet and the best way to describe it is ‘flowery’ - Ms Gates is well known for this but it was just way over the top! I honestly thought I was reading a Harlequin written decades ago, the only redeeming feature was that instead of fading to black and imagining a beach with the waves crashing in we did get to read the sex scenes which were good and fairly graphic by Harlequin standards.

    This was a absolutely amazing read from the brilliant author Olivia Gates. A story betrayal, secrets and ambition. I adored the main characters and found myself completely fascinated with the author's manner of building both characters as individuals in such a manner that both seemed to be in a world of their own yet at the same time already together.The sexual heat and intense tension left me in awe of the author's writing and the very real emotion she packs into her characters. The flow of this read for wonderful, everything fell into place at the perfect moment.I recommend this read for any romance fan that loves a excellent married for convenience. A definite winner! " Will he loose her when she learns his secret?"

    Aram wants to go back to the country he considers home, but if he wants to stay he has to become a citizen. The best way is to marry someone from the country, it was suggested to him that he should marry Princess Kanza. Aram is absolutely against this option, he remembers her as ‘Kanza the Monster’. The storyline was interesting, the sexual tension and chemistry kept the book flowing nicely. Olivia Gates did not disappoint in this book. ARC provided by NetGalley

    Thanks Starbucks, my review is gone. Grrrrr.As with most if not all Olivia Gates' plots, it's complicated. OG creates characters that live in a universe of epic emotions and elemental betrayals. She reigns a wealth of hurt and angst down on her lovers by keeping them apart and where the heavens weep tears for their sorrows. Yes, the H's will still slut shame the h, but it's actually from a perceived actual betrayal rather than just misogynistic BS from a man-whore with mommy issues.Sadly, this is a 3 star unlike The Desert King or The Desert Lord's Bride. The H, a brilliant financier with the body and looks of a god, was shunned from his homeland years ago after dumping the fiancee from hell. Turns the she-devil is the half-sister of the soon to be h. At that time, the h was kind of odd as she must have been in a punk stage or something. She's cute now. A tiny h with a spunky way in contrast to his indulgent big H ways.The H has an offer to come back to the kingdom to be Minister of Finance, but the catch is he must be royal so must marry a princess. Guess who's a princess? The h is tossed to the H by his sister and his BF. They fall in love, have earth shattering sex, and get married in one of the best weddings ever. (view spoiler)[In a gold and cream coordinated ensemble, the H pops out of billowing smoke Bollywood style and sings, yes sings to the heroine. Frankly, I blushed when I read it. O.T.T. (hide spoiler)] The H inconveniently forgets to mention the price tag associated with the marriage, and the h is understandably upset when she finds out. The h, not reading the romance rule book, reacts like a grown up which is a little disappointing.Why 3 stars vs 4? I had a hard time buying the connection between the H and the h. Plus, while I abhor ratty siblings, I really wanted to see the half-sister/fiancee come back and raise a little hell only to get out in her place again. This is part of a series so there's hope she'll put a crank in someone else's plan.

    Olivia Gates is my go to author for over the top, larger than life, gorgeous sheikh's. These fabulous men are every woman's dream but when they meet THE woman, the rest of them might as well hang up their stiletto heels and lipsticks.These guys fall so hard for their woman it probably gets mistaken for an earthquake somewhere in the Mediterranean. Aram is forty and has given up all hope of making a connection. His sister and her husband, Aram's best friend, are worried he's falling into depression from overwork and loneliness. They suggest a marriage of convenience with a girl he hasn't seen for ten years but he isn't interested.So when he meets Kanza, he is astonished as his instant reaction. Her snarky repartee drags him from the brink so fast his emotions almost get whiplash. He's fascinated by her but terrified she will run if he pushes for more than the friendship she is offering.Kanza remembers Aram too well, believing her half-sisters tales of a self absorbed brute who cast her off unfeelingly. So when he demands a fair hearing she is reluctant but fair. Things were nothing like they appeared and so a friendship was born.I really enjoyed this story, although I was starting to find the snark at the beginning a little wearing. But once we got moving, this was a lovely read about two lonely people finding each other despite the well meant machinations of others.Olivia Gates writes on the hotter end of the Desire spectrum *fans self* but tastefully done even when it verges on purple prose. But that dramatic style suits the whole over the top feeling about the book.

    I enjoyed this one. I knew it would be good and wasn't disappointed. The witty banter between the hero and the heroine was too cute. Very entertaining. P.S. I loved the book cover. Most of her books have fabulous cover.

    I have been a big fan of Olivia Gates for a while now. And I loved her First book in the series titled To Tame A Sheikh. And figured this one would be just as good if not better. But I have to admit I was somewhat disappointed. There were parts of this book that were really good, other parts not so much.Aram Nazaryan has always considered Zohayd home. But after being slandered by Maysoon his ex fiancé he left the country he had grown to love. Ten years later Aram is being offered the chance to return to Zohayd as the Minister of Economy but in order for Aram to take the job he needs to either be Zohaydan or marry a Zohaydan Princess. His best friend Shasheen, whom also happens to be his brother in law has the perfect solution marry Kanza, “Kanza the Monster”Kanza Aal Ajmaan is no monster. She was given the nickname by her spoiled self-centered half sister Maysoon. She is stunningly beautiful, nothing like the eighteen year old Aram remembers. Kanza had fallen in love with Aram but after the way he humiliated Maysoon ten years ago Kanza wants nothing to do with him. Shasheen and Johara think that Aram and Kanza would make a perfect match. So Johara sets a plan in motion to have these two meet. And after coming face to face with Kanza, Aram definitely wants her as his wife. But what will happen to her marriage when Kanza learns the truth behind it? At first I struggled to get into the story. There would be a few brief glimpses of the Olivia Gates writing style that I fell in love with. But the book did not have an even flow to it. The Wedding was just corny for lack of a better word. The first parts of the book wasted so much time on what Aram was thinking. At times there seemed to be a lack of chemistry between the Hero and Heroine. But once these two hooked up it really took off. The passionate scenes were very well written. The banter between these two was interesting. I will continue to be a big fan of Olivia’s and this book is worth reading, it just was not her best. Favorite line:“Have I told you lately just how out of my mind in love with you I am?’3.5/5 starsI received an ARC of this book from the NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    When it comes to the Desire line, you usually can't go wrong with one of Olivia Gates' books. She is one of the lines best writers, and she really writes great male characters from the middle east. Aram isn't a sheikh but he is a wealthy gorgeous man.The problem with this book is that the characters aren't very convincing. Aram and Kanza knew each other previously. Aram dated her step sister and when that relationship went south, Kanza held a grudge.Thanks to his sister and his best friend (who are husband and wife) he is thrown together with Kanza, who used to be an obnoxious goth girl, now she's anything but.The plot is ok, but Aram and Kanza just don't click for me the way I'd like them too. Kanza is high strung, stubborn and at times down right mean. I'm not always fond of alpha males, but Aram could have been a little more alpha at times.It really seemed like everything fell too neatly into place for them. They got to know each other and they fell in love? There didn't seem to be a reason why they were in love, at least not a real good one. The other disappointment for me was the lack of spice in this novel. It took more than halfway through the novel before they had sex! This is a Desire! I want some hot scenes before page 120. Sure they made up for it after that, but it seemed more like sex for the sake of having sex...honeymoon sex etc...Aram and Kanza's wedding was very over the top too. Too much so. He sang to her, for crying out loud!I really love Olivia's other books, but this one was a dud for me. Here's hoping this is just a one time thing.

    My favorite author did it again. I can always depend on Olivia Gates to entertain me. Passion laughter and plots abundantly. Im never bored. I was promised a new hero and he was delivered wrapped in gold. I was hooked to the last drop. Wanting for more. The thing I like with this author she writes with so much passion and no two hero's are the same. Thank you.

    I've been a big fan of Olivia Gates for a long time now - I've found that she's one of the relatively few authors who have a real talent for combining scorching passion with intense emotion and drama. That said, her two or three books prior to this were not among my favorites of hers: something about them just left me cold, so my expectations were not super-high when I got my hands on a copy of this book. I have to say, I've read others' reviews of this one and I can see the issues they had with it, but I loved it. The characters were from molds we've all seen before: the alpha male hero, Aram, who has grown detached from life and is basically going through the motions; and Kanza, the tiny, feisty, somewhat younger heroine whose sarcasm and cutting comments mask her vulnerability. The beginnings of their story didn't exactly reinvent the wheel either: they had known each other (non-romantically) years before, but hadn't seen each other for quite some time. When they reunite, courtesy of Aram's sister Johara's matchmaking, there are issues they have to work out, but they dispatch with those quickly, and then it's on to a lot of banter. Here's where things get interesting: that banter - which is a lot of fun - doesn't immediately lead to them falling into bed. They actually start off being...wait for it...friends first. They spend time together and really get to know one another. Granted, while all of this platonic bonding is going on, each is operating under the misconception that all the other wants is friendship, and believes that the attraction and lust they feel is not mutual. Eventually, they find out that they'd both been spectacularly wrong, and the chemistry instantly turns intense. Then, of course, there is the requisite big misunderstanding/reveal of information not previously known to the heroine, and the angst is cranked up significantly. Unlike other books by Ms. Gates, the pain and drama isn't drawn out for a large number of pages: there is a lot confusion, desperation and tears, but it is resolved relatively quickly, and in pretty spectacular fashion. (I don't think that's a spoiler for anyone who's ever read a Harlequin book.) Personally, I loved that their relationships was built on such a solid foundation - I think that made their passion even hotter, and the emotions that much deeper, than they otherwise would have been. In short: this was a real romance and a true love story. Plus, it was nice to see the hero being so honest about his emotions, rather than fighting them tooth and nail until the end of the book. Seeing Johara and Shaheen, her husband, play roles in this story was a treat, as I enjoyed their earlier installment in this series, and I thought that Aram and Kanza were great characters, in their own right, and their love story was incredibly romantic. Was there some repetition and perhaps unnecessarily detailed passages? Yes, but for me, they didn't detract from the enjoyment of the story. I loved it, and I'd urge anyone looking for a quick read that's fun, passionate, and emotional to give this book a try.

    This is the second book of the serie MARRIED BY ROYAL DECREE. It's my second favorite book of the serie after the last one Seducing His PrincessWhat I liked the most about this book is the interaction between the main characters, the dates, dialogues, the way they started to fall in love. Kanza (the heroine) is hilarious! she made me laugh during the reading. Aram is a gentleman!I found the book entertaining, relaxed, funny without no "MAJOR PROBLEM" like other romance books. From time to time I like to read a romance like this.If you are looking for an "uncomplicated" romance book, this is for you! ;) XXP.D. Aram (the hero) is the older brother of Johara Nazaryan. You can read her love story with Shaheen Aal Shalaan in the serie Pride of Zohayd: To Tame a Sheikh (2010)You can read other romance books by Olivia Gates in her new serie The Billionaires of Black Castle. The first 2 books of the serie were released in 2014 and her next book 's release is coming in March. You will probably fall in love with this brotherhood of alfa-males ;)From Enemy's Daughter to Expectant Bride November (2014)Scandalously Expecting His Child December (2014)Pregnant by the Sheikh March (2015)Claiming His Secret Son July (2015)

    I really enjoyed this book! Aram and Kanza are a great couple with amazing chemistry! Aram is presented with the opportunity to return to Zohayd in a high level position, as long as he marries into the royal family. Aram balks at the requirement, and the set-up, but then he meets Kanza again. Kanza is an independent, intelligent, and strong woman. She is used to being overlooked and believes herself to be unattractive. Aram is a strong, sexy, alpha male who craves a home and family. I love how Kanza challenges Aram and how they start by building a friendship first. I love the banter that I now expect from an Olivia Gates book. It was great to revisit many of the other characters from previous series (Castaldini Crown and Pride of Zohayd).

    Pretty good book. Aram is a high-powered financial wiz. His best friend and brother-in-law is Minister of Finance of Zohayd but would like Aram to take that job. In order to do so he would have to be a citizen and the best way to achieve that is through marriage. Shaheen suggests Kanza, but Aram wants nothing to do with her. He remembers her as a teenager, with obnoxious behavior and even more obnoxious fashion taste. When Shaheen and his wife, who is also Aram's sister, throw them together, Aram is smitten. Their romance is fast and furious, but what will happen when Kanza discovers the truth?Aram is forty years old and alone. There were many things that led to it, but lately his loneliness has become overwhelming. Even his friend and sister have no real effect because they are so wrapped up in each other. Shaheen wants Aram to take over his minister's job so that he has more time for his family and suggests marrying Kanza to pave the way but Aram is having none of it. When he and Kanza are tricked into meeting, he doesn't recognize her at first and is delighted by the razor wit of the woman before him. When he does finally recognize her he is still enchanted and determined to have her for his own. I liked the fact that Shaheen's suggestion didn't really come into his decision at all. I enjoyed his utter fascination with Kanza's attitude and his appreciation for her intelligence. He realized quickly that making his desires known would send her running so he went for developing a friendship first. They also developed a good amount of trust which showed most when he was telling her about his past. I really liked seeing the fun they had together. I also liked the way that he kept his desire under control for so long. I thought the way that he considered her happiness important was just what she needed. I did think that the wedding itself was a bit too much and took away from its importance. I did like his actions at the end and how he made things work for both of them.Kanza was quite a character. She was pretty much the forgotten one of her father's nine daughters, so her actions as a teen were her way of being noticed. She had been drawn to Aram even then, but felt that he was way out her league. Then when he was briefly engaged to her sister and broke it off, she only got her sister's side of the story and spent years hating him. She went on to become almost as brilliant a financier as Aram, and started working with his sister. She never realized that their meeting was a setup. I loved the way that she blasted Aram with her accusations, but also that she had the ability to recognize the truth when she heard it. She wasn't very happy with his pursuit of her at first. When he didn't try to seduce her she thought that he was just looking for a friend and was willing to settle for friendship. When their mutual attraction burst into being she was overwhelmed. His proposal was a dream come true for her. One of the things I liked best was her satisfaction at the reactions of her sisters - it had to be immensely gratifying. Then she went from such happiness to such misery that I just ached for her. Her misery matched his, but making it come right was perfect for both of them.

    When a rich and powerful man is ordered to wed, his response is an emphatic “no”. If he marries, it will be done on his terms and not because he was instructed. In the second book of the Married by Royal Decree series, the hero feels there is no way he could be attracted to the woman who is suggested as a bride for him. Yet when he is reunited with her after many years apart, he quickly learns time can drastically transform someone. CONVENIENTLY HIS PRINCESS by the talented Olivia Gates is a compelling romantic tale of fulfilled dreams. When one of the princes from Zohayd visits him, Aram Nazaryan cannot believe his good friend would suggest he marry Princess Kanza Aal Ajmaan in order to become a royal citizen of his country. This would make the businessman eligible to accept an influential governing role, but he keeps recalling how bossy she was plus her peculiar way of dressing. Though he is tempted by the offer because living in Zohayd would bring him much pleasure, Aram refuses to consider the proposal. An accidental meeting between Aram and Kanza leaves him fascinated and wanting to see her again. With each new encounter, the two start to change their opinions as they get to know the person each has become. Kanza discovers he is someone much different from what she thought, and friendship turns to desire. Yet what she wants from him might not be the same as what motivates Aram.Emotions range from extremely joyous highs to dejected lows, and each feeling is dramatically expressed in CONVENIENTLY HIS PRINCESS. The characters frankly speak with a candidness rarely seen in other stories, and their actions also communicate how they feel at a certain time. Olivia Gates has a knack for creating vivacious individuals whose high-spirited personalities are clearly revealed time and again. Aram and Kanza certainly do not hold back when they are talking, and countless conversations of theirs are packed with chuckle-inducing replies. While these two may seem rather quiet and serious to others around them, they are very animated when together. When Aram opens up to Kanza about several past events, my heart went out to him because of all he endured then and even currently. Just because he is wealthy does not mean contentment is guaranteed, and I so wanted him to finally be truly happy. There are numerous times in the story where I could not help but smile over how Kanza was not someone who gave in without a battle. I could easily picture her going head-to-head with another person, regardless of their status or physique. Though there is not as much emotional angst in CONVENIENTLY HIS PRINCESS as in many of the books by Ms. Gates, their road to everlasting joy is not totally smooth. Much of the book focuses on the feelings of this couple, and the scenes turn unmistakably fiery when their passionate natures take over. Settings are imaginatively depicted and sometimes almost take your breath away because of the vivid details. CONVENIENTLY HIS PRINCESS is a captivating love story overflowing with heartfelt emotions.

    At first I couldn't get pass the first couple of chapters. Maybe it was just me but it was too many descriptions. But I finally decided to finish the book and I found out I really enjoyed the book. This book is about finding that one person who truly completes you. Aram and Kanzi started off slow both afraid then all it took was Aram sister Johara (One of the matchmakers) to tell him that Kanzi was going home and another man wanted to marry her and Aram went out of control. (So funny) Things moved very quickly from there. I liked the ending but I was still sad. You will need to read it to find out why.

    This book tells the story of Aram who crave to be back to his country that he called home but there are circumstances that disallowed him to. He is being offer a position to hold, a position that he have envision that he know he do well but it comes with a catch, he have to be a member of a royal family to hold that position. His solution comes in the form of Princess Kanza. Marrying her will means a position in the cabinet as well as contributes to his country. But it is a high price for Aram to take. No way will he sacrifice himself like that; marrying a princess whom people have nicknamed as monster. But his opinion on her changed after he set his eyes on her when they met at his sister’ office and he found himself wanting more of her. Kanza is an independent woman and similar to Aram, she doesn’t have a good impression of him too. But as they get to know each other more, she found her opinion started to change. I like to see the battle of will between the two main characters and where both trying to undermine each other. I like the candidness in their conversations which the author did really a good job. I love them too much that I felt for her when Kanza found out Aram’s initial intention and his thought of her then. Overall, it is a sensual packed with sizzle and sexual tension coupled with witty dialogues that makes it a fun read to me.

    This novel was a bit too much for me. The characters evidently knew each other, and the some readers would know them from a previous book. I did not read the previous book, perhaps that back story would have made the lead couple more compelling for me. The book was very sweet, the love story very predictable, and the lead couple lacked a bit of chemistry for me. I was looking for some angst, some problem for them, but it was a pretty smooth trip to happily ever after. There wasn't much in the way of love scenes either for my taste. I would put it in the category of a gentle read. The pacing was even, the settings beautifully drawn, the ease of immersion good, and the story well plotted; I gave it 4 stars because it wasn't badly written, just not my favorite read. Based on other reader's recommendations I would read other Olivia Gates books, however.*I received my copy from NetGalley.com in exchange for an honest review.

    I think these romances with middle eastern heroes aren’t going to be for everyone – the men tend to have very specific ideas and are more dominant than some romances – but they are very popular with some. Personally, I liked it, so if you are into this kind of thing this is definitely a good choice. It is part of a series, so there are returning characters, but they play a small enough role that you can read this one as a stand alone novel.And being a Harlequin Desire book, some of the prose tended to be a little more flowery than maybe some other romance novels – the hero and heroine make statements that some may find cheesy – but the plot was very interesting and I was quite satisfied with the resolution. Some of the sex scenes were a little florid too, but hot at the same time. Just prepare yourself for a more colorful writing style and you’ll be ok. The story is definitely worth reading as long as you are OK with the tone.

    Conveniently His Princess is the second book in Olivia Gates’ Married by Royal Decree series. Aram Nazaryan is asked to take over the role of Minister of Economic in the desert kingdom. The only thing stopping him is the need to marry a princess of Zohayd. It is suggested that he marry Princess Kanza Aal Ajmaan. He couldn’t believe his friends suggestion as he remembers her in a totally different light. Over time, their relationship develops. Of course, there is drama surrounding their marriage but in the end Aram and Kanza find true happiness. This is another good book by Ms. Gates; however, I find I do have to concentrate when reading her works because of the in-depth descriptions she uses.

Kanza also had a preconceived notion of Aram, other than his disgusting good looks. Together they learn that they should base their own opinions on first person facts only. Aram also learned that being entirely truthful saves heartache.
