    With her aging grandfather on his deathbed and not expected by his doctors to live for more than two or three months, it comes as little comfort to the beautiful Gytha Sullivan that he has made her the heiress to his considerable fortune. What is much worse is Sir Robert Sullivan’s fear that she will be seduced by some ‘smarmy fortune-hunter’, who will squander her inheritance.And this deep concern of his makes him insist that she marries one or other of her two loathsome cousins, Vincent and Jonathan, who will do anything to take his fortune for themselves.Desperate to escape from this terrible fate, Gytha goes to visit the Master of the neighbouring estate, the dashingly handsome Lord Locke, whose life her father once saved in the War against Napoleon, and beseeches him to, in turn, save her by becoming engaged to her, thereby making a forced marriage to either of her cousins impossible. Appalled by the poor girl’s plight his Lordship agrees much to the anger of Gytha’s family and his exotic lover the entrancing Princess Zuleika. Little does Lord Locke know that, as he gains a false fiancée, he is truly about to lose his heart!

    Angus:My mixed-breed cat, half domestic tabby, half Scottish wildcat. The size of a small Labrador, only mad. 
    Thongs:Stupid underwear. What's the point of them, anyway? They just go up your bum, as far as I can tell. 
    Full-Frontal Snogging:Kissing with all the trimmings, lip to lip, open mouth, tongues ... everything. 
    Her dad's got the mentality of a Teletubby (only not so developed). Her cat, Angus, is trying to eat the poodle next door. And her best friend thinks she looks like an alien -- just because she accidentally shaved off her eyebrows. Ergghhhlack. Still, add a little boy-stalking, teacher-baiting, and full-frontal snogging with a Sex God, and Georgia's year just might turn out to be the most fabbitty fab fab ever!

    Read the first four books in the bestselling Soldiers of Fame and Fortune series! 
    Nobody's Fool 
    Decades ago, an alien ship fired a missile at Earth as they passed by, and we caught it. That was when humanity truly opened Pandora's box. 
    One more trip into danger, or something beyond danger? 
    Holly Smith has been hired as a consultant to go into the ZOO and retrieve information to help a company find a unique chemical.  
    Holly is not a stranger to danger when trying to uncover that next billion-dollar ingredient, but even Holly has to admit something is wrong with the vibe coming from the ZOO. 
    There should not be a lush jungle in the middle of the Sahara. 
    Needing more information, she leaves the American security enclave and heads to the French/Israeli/India military encampment where mercenaries are known to congregate. 
    Plenty of alcohol should get her the answers she needs, right? 
    The more she learns, the more her concern intensifies. Can she learn if there is real danger, or are they lying? 
    Nobody Lives Forever 
    Holly has found FU*BAR in the French encampment and she hopes to learn more about the ZOO from those who have been there. 
    Will she get the truth, or will she make decisions on tall tales? 
    JB is looking for someone special, someone to help him in the future. He might have found that person in Holly.  
    Will each of them find the answers they need? 
    Holly is back, learning about another story ripped out of the ZOO. 
    Can she learn enough about the ZOO before those back in America push her to make a decision? 
    Nobody Drinks That Much 
    Holly is beginning to understand what her gut has been telling her, and it isn't a pretty sight. 
    Will she listen to what she is learning, or is she feeling the pressure from New York? 
    JB is telling her stories, but does he have an ulterior motive? And if he does, is it better for Holly to know it…or not?  
    Will each of them find the solution they need? 
    Holly is back, learning about another story ripped out of the ZOO. But this one seems too impossible to be true. HOW MUCH can one person drink and not shoot themselves? 
    Can she learn enough about the ZOO to become comfortable with the idea that she can make it inside, and back out again safely? 
    Nobody Remembers But Us 
    Holly has been asking questions, but now they are getting a bit more pointed…and you never know who might be in the audience. 
    There are ghosts everywhere, but now we are talking about ghosts in the ZOO? 
    JB is telling stories again, but this time the story is personal.  
    Will anyone believe him when he says he met an operative—a killer—in the ZOO? 
    Holly is back, listening to another story about the ZOO. But this one seems too mysterious to be easily believed. Is there a ghost in the ZOO? Does anyone know who she might be? 
    Can Holly learn enough about the ZOO to become comfortable with the idea that she can make it inside and back out again safely?​ 
    Join Holly Smith as she learns about the ZOO, how to stay alive, and the opportunities that being a part of the ZOO have brought humanity.
