There's a reason why Olivia Gates is one of my favourite authors and this book is just another one of them.
This story takes us into the world of Mohab and Jala and brings its into a love so strong that neither a family feud nor time can diminish it.
I always fall in love with Olivia's heros. They're so delicious! And her heroines are always so strong and loveable and Jala is no exception. Even after a somewhat difficult life she still has dignity and strength.

A fabulous read and I recommend it
"You’re mine, Jala. And no matter how long it takes, I swear to you, I will reclaim you. I will make you beg to be mine again."

This was ONE of the best book I read in 2014. Olivia Gates is the top #1 of my contemporary romance authors.
Jala and Mohab had a romance 6 years ago. When they broke up he told her that one day they will back together. So now Mohab is determined to have Jala again. He asks for her hand in marriage to her brother the king of Judar Kamal Aal Masood. Mohab explains Kamal t

I have to say that Olivia Gates is my go to girl for hot alpha's with high levels of fidelity. Even a reunion romance is safe as houses because the only place these guys are gonna spill their seed is on the desert sands while pining for their lost love. These are my kind of heroes in a world where the moment the heroine is out the door, so many heroes go and lose themselves in another woman. This is not the love I'm gonna trust down the track when I'm tired from minding the kids and he's staying ...more

The read as the title suggests is about Mohab Aal Ghaanem, who once he had his Princess, Jala, but a bitter feud between their families caused him to lose her, and now he has to do everything he can to seduce her back into his life.

But Jala is not so sure she wants to marry the man who had betrayed her trust , she does not however count on Mohab not only being irresistible but dead set on bringing home his Princess.

This was a short read, the kind that fits nicely into a few stolen reading hour

Good reunion story. Six years earlier, Jala and Mohab had met when he rescued her and his cousin during a hostage crisis. A short time later he used deceptive means to keep his cousin away from her, making it easier for him to be with her. Their relationship was passionate and intense, but when Jala found out what Mohab had done her feelings of betrayal ran deep and she broke things off.

Six years later Mohab uses her desire to prevent a war over his land's oil to convince her to marry him. He is

When a couple gets another opportunity to revive the love they once shared, I always look forward to seeing what the future holds in store for them. And if the author is Olivia Gates, then I know the journey will be filled with lots of passion plus challenging dilemmas. SEDUCING HIS PRINCESS is an enchanting romance with spirited characters and one exciting scenario after another.

Although Jala Aal Masood had made the decision to marry Mohab Aal Ghaanem, things did not previously work out for th

I was giving this book as an ARC for an honest review.

This is the story of Mohab Aal Ghaanem and Jala Aal Mosood. Mohab has loved Jala from the moment he first seen her. But because of a family feud he could never approach her. The depth of this love story will pull at you heart strings so be prepared.

Haka is caught in a hostage situation with Najeeb, Mohab has to make a choice save his crown prince or the woman he loves. When Jala and Najeeb find themselves getting close after the hostage situa

I love stories where people who loved before get back together. Mohab is determined to win back Jala and it definitely shows. This is a very short read, that’s perfect for a quick pick me up read that leaves that happy glow behind. It’s a superb example of what Ms. Gates is great at, creating interesting characters that are well written and easy to invest in.

Mohab is sweet, kind and I loved his determined attitude when it comes to getting Jala back. Jala was also sweet and I like that I also see

I really enjoyed Seducing His Princess! This is a great second chance romance and I loved the how the background of a family feud helped to bring Mohab and Jala back together. Mohab is tall, sexy, commanding alpha male who is determined to get Jala back. Jala is an intelligent woman who has devoted her life to humanitarian work. Mohab learned his lesson from their previous relationship and is insistent on full disclosure this time around. He absolutely worships and cherishes Jala. I loved how Ja ...more

In this wonderfully written story of Olivia Gates, you won't be able to resist falling for the hero. He's quite a character, very well defined by the author, of course, but so unpredictable! I love it when a character manages to surprise me,  which is not easy to do, believe me.

Also, the heroine of the story is a very strong, capable woman, who has managed to blossom outside of such a male dominated world, taking charge or her life,  enjoying her independence while also having her brothers wrapp

I really loved this one. It's the third book in Married by Royal Decree series. Mohab won me over for the pets he has and how he treats them. But what makes you fall in love with him is how feels for Jala. Makes you wish you can find a Mohab of your own. The story flows very well and it's hard to put this one down. I highly recommend reading this one. Jala and Mohab have a past that ended on not so pleasant terms. Mohab will do anything to have Jala back in his life, but the deal he proposes to ...more

This is the reason why Olivia Gates is my FAVORITE author. I think she writes with a passion so deep it fills the readers soul.( well at least mine). Seducing his princess again is definitely a can't put me down until the last word.Her characters are so real and special,with her descriptive writing you can visualize every scene and each character. also identify with the heroine, not too modern not too ancient, just enough. This is a TEN star.. love it

It was heart-warming, gave my legs quivers (a lot of it), transported me into amazing and marvelous atmospheres, and made me yearn for more and more of it. You have absolutely won a RITA Award from me (if I was the one awarding)...the story is tormentingly HOT! Heart-meltingly ROMANTIC! and a BEAUTIFUL read!!! I want to read more of this! please!

Awesome! Jala's story is better reading then her brother's. I laughed, I cried, truly an emotional roller coaster. Olivia Gates can make her characters seem so real, you expect to see them jump of the page and introduce themselves to you personally.

While there are many talented authors who are responsible for books in the Harlequin Desire line, Olivia Gates is truly in a class by herself when it comes to creating heroes, and Mohab is the perfect example of that. Here we have a true alpha male in every way: renowned for his special forces-related skills; keenly intelligent and a master planner; ultra-confident; and, as is a hallmark of all of Ms. Gates’ heroes, completely and utterly focused on, and loyal to, his heroine. (In terms of the l ...more

I am a bit on the fence about this book. There were so many secrets and manipulations that they become tangled together and I would have to go back and reread to clarify if this was a repeat from earlier or a new-to-light problem. Simply put, I found it very confusing and never did feel I had a grasp of understanding. I also struggled with the slow pace of the story. To me, it seemed to drag throughout and then abruptly ended as I searched for the next chapter.

I will say that I love how the H an

This was a very nice, simple and quick read. Although I gave it 3.5***stars it was still very much likeable for me, as it wasn't great, but it wasn't bad either.

This story had a little blackmail, unfinished business and love wrapped into a read that makes the reader falls in love with both characters. Mohab was not aggressive, an

I had my finals going on from college when I had gotten this book. After that I didn’t had chance to read the book until just now. And only one word I can say to describe this book is OMG!!! The title of the book is one eye catching and the story of Mohab and Jala is beautiful. I love the chemistry between those two and Jala’s resistances of Mohab’s charms were very charming and captivating.

I had one problem with the book, the story is a spin-off from a previous series of the same author, but in several moments some moments of the past were quoted and it got me a little confused. It felt strange for me to read a follow-up, without knowing there was something previous affecting the way Jala think and act.

I liked the couple and thought it was super cute to follow them reconnect. Mohab was a nice guy and an extra hot special ops kinda guy, but now he just became a king and needs to m

Seducing His Princess is the third book in Olivia Gates’ Married by Royal Decree series. I love books where a couple gets a second chance at love and Jala and Mohab have that second chance. I was hooked from the opening with Jala and Mohab’s break-up. Six years later they are brought together and through a series of events realize how much they truly love one another. They have a lot to overcome but they do find their happily ever after. Seducing His Princess is a great addition to the Married b ...more
I could not have asked for a more smitten, hopelessly-devoted hero in Mohab. Jala on the other hand? Her unwillingness to move forward with Mohab and accept his attempts at atonement wore down my patience. Jala was supposedly so astute, yet had a difficult time believing Mohab loved her like she loved him. Really? In light of all the evidence Mohab clearly loved her to the point of obsession!

I also struggled with the flowery writing and slow pacing during the first-half of the book. Mohab's awe

Liked it.....too much 'I worship thee' hero and a very silly princess to walk out without making effort to ask things of her man. But as far as the standard formula of mills and boon this book will be rated more positive than negative....for me though I would say man do what you need to...go after the woman but need you grovel so so much...?? Apart from that very good feeling to have love midst so much angst.. Even the supporting characters love is very positive.
