Beneath the Sun

By Claire Lorrimer

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

A thrilling tale of love and danger from bestselling romance author Claire Lorrimer.

It was a routine flight to Africa but the passengers were destined never to arrive. Hijacked at gunpoint, the pilot is forced to land in the desert where, in the blistering heat and with remote chance of rescue, the passengers face imminent death.

For Chris and Liz, on their honeymoon, the intense passion they share proves to be an even deeper and stronger commitment than they had realised - until now.

And for the stewardess Eve, and handsome American Bruce Mallory, will the lighthearted mid-air flirtation end - as it always does - on landing?
