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?

Asghar and Zahra follows an unlikely couple through the first year of their tumultuous marriage.Asghar and Zahra were born in the same British Muslim community in west London; both are trying to accommodate their home culture with the world around them. But the superficial similarities between them do not tell the whole story. Their families are rivals involved in running two different mosques: Asghar's is more traditional, while Zahra's is more liberal. Asghar struggles with integrating: he is a shy, closed personality. Zahra is an ambitious and intelligent woman who can't wait to leave her community behind.Told from both characters' points of view, the novel opens on their wedding day. Asghar sees in Zahra an opening to a world he has never mastered; Zahra sees in Asghar the embodiment of the community she has guiltily abandoned. Each is attracted to what they imagine the other to be - and each discovers, to their cost, that their projections do not match reality...A funny, sympathetic and very human novel about the difficulties of reconciling the sometimes conflicting demands of family, religion and society, Asghar and Zahra is the debut of a striking new talent.

The Kalashnikov AK47. A weapon with a unique image. A symbol of freedom fighters and terrorists across the globe. Undercover officer Andy Knight has infiltrated an extremist group intent on bringing the rifle to Britain - something MI5 have been struggling for years to prevent. He befriends Zeinab, the young Muslim student from Yorkshire who is at the centre of the plot. All Zeinab needs to do is travel to the impoverished high-rise estates of Marseilles and bring one rifle home on a test run. Then many more will follow - and with them would come killing on an horrendous scale. Zeinab is both passionate and attractive, and though Andy knows that the golden rule of undercover work is not to get emotionally attached to the target, sometimes rules are impossible to follow. Supremely suspenseful, Battle Sight Zero follows Andy and Zeinab to the lethal badlands of the French port city, simultaneously tracking the extraordinary life journey of the blood-soaked weapon they are destined to be handed there.
