    Amar had a preconceived idea of the type of person Kanza was based off of an ex fiancée's opinion of her half sister. 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.

    Conveniently His Princess is the second book in Olivia Gates¿ Ma

    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.

    I think these romances with middle eastern heroes aren¿t going t

    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.

    This was a absolutely amazing read from the brilliant author Oli

    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?"

    This is truly the first romance book I read that followed that t

    This is truly the first romance book I read that followed that trajectory in relationship between hero and heroine, making Aram and Kanza unique for me. And they were the best in every stage. I laughed out loud so many times and shed tears when all seemed lost. But my jaw dropped when the twists kept coming, as Kanza the unpredictable didn't behave like it's expected from romance heroines and believed in her man, when any other would have run screaming, making everything worse. And Aram....oh, Araaaam! He's so absolutely luscious...alpha all the way yet with a fathomless need for love and belonging and a gigantic heart. 




    I can't recommend this book enough!

    Rating: 3.5 Stars Aram Nazaryan gave up on his dream of marriag

    Rating: 3.5 Stars

    Aram Nazaryan gave up on his dream of marriage and putting down roots long ago when he was forced to leave Zohayd, the only place that felt like home to him. When his best and only friend approaches him with a proposition to take over his role as the Minister of Economics in the desert kingdom, Aram is tempted to take the dream job. There's only one catch: to serve in the cabinet, Aram has to marry a princess of Zohayd. He's less than impressed when Shaheen suggests Princess Kanza Aal Ajmaan.
    "You want me to marry Kanza the Monster?"
    But Kanza has changed in the ten years since Aram has seen her. It only takes one run in with her for Aram to become intrigued and invigorated by her. Kanza, wary at first, begins to enjoy a friendship with Aram, unaware that she has been offered as the perfect solution to Aram. As their relationship grows, is it the lure of returning to the only home he's ever had and finally being able to start a family that compels Aram, or has Kanza wormed her way into his heart?

    I usually don't like desert romances or stories with royalty. The billionaire businessman is wearing thin as well. But I have to admit, I enjoyed Conveniently His Princess. I loved Kanza and Aram's witticisms and sly comebacks. Ms. Gates did a great job with the dialogue in this book. The dialogue was fresh and zinged across the page. The complexity of Aram's feelings kept me turning the pages. I liked how so much of Conveniently His Princess was from his perspective; it's nice to roam around in the male mind every now and then. 

    However, aside from the dialogue and steamy sex scenes, I wasn't as caught up in the writing of Conveniently HIs Princess. 
    "Instead of getting used to being inundated in his vibe and pervaded by his presence each time the experience got more intense, had her reeling even harder."
    Passages like this felt a little clunky to me. 

    Overall, this was a solid read. I loved the dialogue, the development of their relationship, and the complex nature Gates gave Aram. There are a few clunky passages and the story drags in part, part Ms. Gates writes the sex and dialogue with a sure hand. I would recommend Conveniently His Princess to anyone who enjoys witty dialogue, steamy sexual encounters, and a multi-faceted hero who goes after what he wants with masterful precision.
