  • BEFORE SHE SLEEPS

    In modern, beautiful Green City, gender selection, war and a virus outbreak have brought the ratio of men to women to alarmingly low levels. The government uses terror and technological surveillance to control its people, and women must take multiple husbands to have children as quickly as possible. Yet there are women who resist, women who live in an underground collective and refuse to be part of the system. Secretly protected by the highest echelons of power, they emerge only at night, to provide to the rich and elite of Green City a type of commodity that nobody can buy: intimacy without sex. As it turns out, not even the most influential men can shield them from discovery and the dangers of ruthless punishment. This dystopian novel from one of Pakistan?s most talented writers is a modern-day parable. It takes the patriarchal practices of female seclusion, gender selection and control over women?s bodies, and recasts them to imagine a world of terrifying postreligious authoritarianism.

  • THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON

    Every year, the people of the Protectorate leave a baby as an offering to the witch who lives in the forest. They hope this sacrifice will keep her from terrorizing their town. But the witch in the Forest, Xan, is kind. She shares her home with a wise Swamp Monster and a Perfectly Tiny Dragon. Xan rescues the children and delivers them to welcoming families on the other side of the forest, nourishing the babies with starlight on the journey.

    One year, Xan accidentally feeds a baby moonlight instead of starlight, filling the ordinary child with extraordinary magic. Xan decides she must raise this girl, whom she calls Luna, as her own. As Luna?s thirteenth birthday approaches, her magic begins to emerge–with dangerous consequences. Meanwhile, a young man from the Protectorate is determined to free his people by killing the witch. Deadly birds with uncertain intentions flock nearby. A volcano, quiet for centuries, rumbles just beneath the earth?s surface. And the woman with the Tiger?s heart is on the prowl . . .

    Fall in love with the next book in Lauren Asher’s hot and sexy Dreamland Billionaires series . . .

    Declan: I’m destined to become the next CEO of my family’s media empire.
    The only problem? My grandfather’s inheritance clause.
    Fulfilling his dying wish of getting married and having an heir seemed impossible until my assistant volunteered for the job.
    Our marriage was supposed to be the perfect solution to my biggest problem.
    But the more we act in love for the public, the more unsure I feel about our contract.
    Caring about Iris was never part of the deal.
    Especially not when breaking her heart is inevitable.

    Iris: My plan to marry Declan was simple in theory.
    Move in together. Throw a wedding. Have a baby.
    We set rules to prevent any kind of issues.
    Ones that were never meant to be broken, no matter how much Declan tempts me.
    But what happens when our fake relationship bleeds into our real one?
    Falling in love was never an option.
    At least not for me.

    Rowan : I’m in the business of creating fairy tales.
    Theme parks. Production companies. Five-star hotels.

    People like me don’t get happy endings.
    Not when we’re destined to ruin them.

    Zahra: After submitting a drunk proposal criticizing Dreamland’s most expensive ride, I should have been fired.
    Instead, Rowan Kane offered me a dream job.
    The catch? I had to work for the most difficult boss I’d ever met.
    Rowan was rude and completely off-limits, but my heart didn’t care.
    At least not until I discovered his secret.
    It was time to teach the billionaire that money couldn’t fix everything.
    Especially not us.
