Ditched by her high school sweetheart, Callum Archer, on the night they´re supposed to elope, Jo Kendall casts out on her own, brokenhearted. Over the years, Jo reels in a life she loves, centered on the outdoors, fishing (favoring a lucky wedding band lure), and her fine dining restaurant - a life that crashes away when her husband and business partner cheats her, leaving her bankrupt and alone. Then her uncle dies, bequeathing Jo and her sister, Samantha, his rural property. Jo returns to Greenridge determined to build a new business and permanent home - without the help of a man. Unfortunately, Samantha wants her inheritance in cold, hard cash and hires a lawyer to get it for her, a lawyer who turns out to be none other than Jo´s long-lost love, Callum. Jo´s fledgling plans - and her heart - are at risk once more. If Jo can fight her insecurities, she might end up with a wedding band that doesn´t come with a sharp hook. But should she risk everything she´s worked for, yet again? Before she can decide, she needs to know: Can a lost love truly be reclaimed? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Grant.

The best thriller writer alive´ - Ken Follett I´m not a typical lawyer. I don´t maintain a pretty office filled with mahogany and leather. I don´t belong to a big firm, prestigious or otherwise. I don´t do good works through the bar association. I´m a lone gunman, a rogue who fights bad systems and hates injustice . . . Sebastian Rudd takes the cases no one else wants to take: the drug-addled punk accused of murdering two little girls; a crime lord on death row; a homeowner accused of shooting at a SWAT team. Rudd believes that every person accused of a crime is entitled to a fair trial - even if he has to cheat to get one. He antagonises people from both sides of the law: his last office was firebombed, either by drug dealers or cops. He doesn´t know or care which. But things are about to get even more complicated for Sebastian. Arch Swanger is the prime suspect in the abduction and presumed murder of 21-year-old Jiliana Kemp, the daughter of the assistant chief of police. When Swanger asks Sebastian to represent him, he lets Sebastian in on a terrible secret . . . one that will threaten everything Sebastian holds dear. Gritty, witty, and impossible to put down, Rogue Lawyer is the master of the legal thriller at his very best.
It´s New Year´s Eve. A major terrorist cell is planning a series of attacks across London over the next 48 hours. The government has surveillance on the group, a man undercover, and prepare to move in, to take out the terrorists before they can strike. But they lose contact with their inside man. And the cell vanishes into thin air, dispersing into the streets, armed and intent on completing their assault on London. The best counterterrorist teams in the country are told to take them down before it´s too late. Nine terrorists. Nine lives. The Armed Response Unit is one of these teams. Efficient and ruthless, the task force is ordered to locate the leader of the cell. As they hunt him down, they begin to realize that this is far bigger than any of them could ever have imagined. Bombings, rocket attacks, betrayal, and a series of unexpected and shocking twists leave the ARU fighting to stay alive. Sam Archer, the youngest member of the team, is keen to prove himself and justify his spot on the task force. With crowds all over London celebrating the New Year, and with nine terrorists somewhere among them, the Armed Response Unit is faced with the most dangerous night of their lives. As the savage, shocking plans of the enemy are fully revealed, the ARU officers are faced with the ultimate question: How many times can a man cheat death before death evens the score? 1.
