“Well written. I couldn’t stop reading this imaginative, uniquely different paranormal story. I want more!” -Goodlife

NY Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Okay, so she’d dated a vampire.

Maybe she got carried away one night.

Becoming a vampire seemed a high price to pay for being foolish.

Nor was this whole transformation thing starting off the way it was supposed to for Marcie Montgomery. She was hungry all the time – not for blood, but tacos and french fries and cheeseburgers, oh my. Then there was Niccolo Maddock, the Master Vampire who was acting as her mentor. Just what did he want?

Going from being an insurance adjuster to a vampire could confuse the most level headed person and Marcie had always considered herself a pragmatist. Even when she was faced with relatives who weren’t who they’d always been, witches who were out to annihilate her, and the stunning knowledge of her own powers. Add in werewolves, shape shifters, and other Brethren and life in South Texas suddenly became very complicated.

When Marcie discovered she alone could transform the vampire race, she was faced with a choice: to embrace who she was or change her destiny.

Why should anything be easy?

For thousands of years mankind has spoke of a legendary, mythical city lost beneath the waves. Now, that legend is no longer a myth.

Ethan Warner and Nicola Lopez are pulled out of hiding in pursuit of their greatest prize yet: the origin of almost every artefact they’ve uncovered in their investigations with the Defense Intelligence Agency. But now there is a new administration in Washington DC and the Russians are colluding with the White House to seek out the city for themselves. Obsessed with recovering the billions stolen from the corrupt cabal Majestic Twelve, men of power will stop at nothing to obtain untold wealth – even if that means all out war between east and west.

Caught in the turmoil, Ethan and Nicola are deployed to find the lost city before the Russians, but they’re out on their own as America seeks revenge on their team. Hunted across the globe, the final showdown has begun. From India to the Aegean Sea, the fjords of Norway to the humid jungles of Indonesia, Ethan and Nicola must follow clues left behind 3,000 years ago by a Greek mariner, and everybody is out to stop them at any cost…

“Absorbing . . . Stott captures the breathless excitement of an investigation on the cusp of the unknown. . . . A lively, original book.” -The New York Times Book Review

Christmas, 1859. Just one month after the publication of On the Origin of Species, Charles Darwin received an unsettling letter. He had expected criticism; in fact, letters were arriving daily, most expressing outrage and accusations of heresy. But this letter was different. It accused him of failing to acknowledge his predecessors, of taking credit for a theory that had already been discovered by others. Darwin realized that he had made an error in omitting from Origin of Species any mention of his intellectual forebears. Yet when he tried to trace all of the natural philosophers who had laid the groundwork for his theory, he found that history had already forgotten many of them.

Darwin’s Ghosts tells the story of the collective discovery of evolution, from Aristotle, walking the shores of Lesbos with his pupils, to Al-Jahiz, an Arab writer in the first century, from Leonardo da Vinci, searching for fossils in the mine shafts of the Tuscan hills, to Denis Diderot in Paris, exploring the origins of species while under the surveillance of the secret police, and the brilliant naturalists of the Jardin de Plantes, finding evidence for evolutionary change in the natural history collections stolen during the Napoleonic wars. Evolution was not discovered single-handedly, Rebecca Stott argues, contrary to what has become standard lore, but is an idea that emerged over many centuries, advanced by daring individuals across the globe who had the imagination to speculate on nature’s extraordinary ways, and who had the courage to articulate such speculations at a time when to do so was often considered heresy.

With each chapter focusing on an early evolutionary thinker, Darwin’s Ghosts is a fascinating account of a diverse group of individuals who, despite the very real dangers of challenging a system in which everything was presumed to have been created perfectly by God, felt compelled to understand where we came from. Ultimately, Stott demonstrates, ideas—including evolution itself—evolve just as animals and plants do, by intermingling, toppling weaker notions, and developing over stretches of time. Darwin’s Ghosts presents a groundbreaking new theory of an idea that has changed our very understanding of who we are.
