I don't typically love Abby Green's books as her heroes tend to be unlikable, but I really enjoyed this book. Both Sadiq and Samia were likable characters with their own emotional scars and both afraid to love. Sadiq arranges a marriage of convenience with a suitably unexciting, nondescript, meek and royal wife. He wants a bland wife who will blend into the background and make no demands on his emotions so that his life will be ordered, smoothly calm, controlled and unemotional. Little does he k...more
This one is on my keeper shelf!!!!!!!!

This is an excellent example of how powerful a category romance can be in the hands of a talented author like Abby Green. The chemistry that exists between Sadiq and Samia is exciting. I was enchanted by how their relationship developed and how they fought to protect themselves against the growing need for one another. I truly liked that Abby stepped out of her traditional mold with the Hero. He was powerful and arrogant, but yet he was kind and tender. He w...more

I really enjoyed this story. Sadiq and Samia are both afraid to love because of their respective childhood experiences. Samia is the first to come to her senses and after keeping his emotions so well hidden, Sadiq finally does the same.
Sadiq is looking for a suitable bride, someone who has been schooled in their ways and has a royal heritage. He believes Princess Samia is the perfect candidate. She will do just fine. She is meek and mild and will easily blend into the background of his life. Ho...more
I am not a big fan of the sheikhy lurve story but I do like AG. This one was okay, both the H and h had their issues but there was minimal drama and angst, more shy librarian h trying to fit in with manly Alpha H's world and getting some backbone while she is at it. She wasn't too juvenile and he wasn't too jerky. I do kinda wish that being introverted did not automatically make you a weak doormat in HPlandia but this book isn't too focused on the h feelings of incompetence and she does grow. Th...more
I don't actually like sheikh stories but I thought I'd read this cause it's an Abby Green book and I think she is a very talented author. So I knew I would love this and I did. Even though it's kind of a slow burn it was engaging and the chemistry between Sadiq and Samia was explosive. I especially liked the hero's final proclamation of love, it was so sweet, honest and deep I got goosebumps!

Definitely a must read for Sheikh romance lovers out there!

I mean, it's Abby Green, you expect nothing but the best and best is what she gave in The Sultan's Choice

The tale is about an arrogant playboy prince, Sadiq who proposes a marriage of convenience to plain-Jane-wallflower princess, Samia.
His goal was to take a conservative, boring wife so he wouldn't have to worry about compromising his role as ruler. Boy, he was in for a surprise! Inside those boxy-suits was a fiery, sen...more
I enjoyed this latest book by Abby Green quite a bit.Both H/h come from damaged backgrounds and experiences and I loved the buildup to their HEA.What started out as a MOC,beacame a wonderful story of two people who overcame their personal fears and doubts and learned to love each other.The h's brother 's story looks intriguing and can not wait to read.

Really enjoyed this book. Good story about Sadiq and Samia who try not to become emotionally attached as they enter an arranged marriage. But you know they do? Can't wait for Samia's brother's story by Abby which is out in December 2011.

Exseretiko!!!Totally so good....:) i buy and other 3 books of Abby ..she write so perfect her books travel you and the only you want is to finish the book!!!Abby right now you will be my favorite Author :)
A marriage of convenience turns into so much more when Samia and Sadiq get to know each other, but can they express their feelings to each other or are they doomed to misinterpret everything?
Quick read, contemporary romance, angst and smutty fluff.
I think this is one of Abby Green's best book!
Good quick read liked both characters. Nice strong alpha male!! I like the heroine found her strength

I've always enjoyed Ms Green's writing, and this was no exception... The chemistry between Sadiq and Samia was fabulous and melty...there was the requisite shy/awkward/insecure heroine that I could vibe with. And I could actually understand Sadiq's attitude and motivations, so his behavior didn't get on my nerves. All makes a Presents success! ;)
This was a good, basic read. I'm not usually the hugest fan of sheik stories, though I like the modern ones more than the older ones. This never got really exciting, and stories where the hero doesn't know he's in love until the end aren't my favorites, but it was still a fairly enjoyable read.
It was slow but a well written story that actually let the characters develop at their own place and time. I really enjoyed reading it and I would read similar ones as well.
shy princess in MOC with arrogant sheihk who thinks she is too boring to engage his interest for long but he's prepared to marry her for the good of his country.

not worth the time it took to real the whole thing. Some of it was worth it, but not all of it. In fact I did not read all of it. I only got 156 out of 255 pagwes read.

Abby Green spent her teens reading Mills & Boon romances. She then spent many years working in the Film and TV industry as an Assistant Director. One day while standing outside an actor's trailer in the rain, she thought: "there has to be more than this". So she sent off a partial to Mills & Boon. After numerous rewrites, they accepted her first book and an author was born. She was nominat...more
