Summary

Northanger Abbey follows seventeen-year-old Gothic novel aficionado Catherine Morland and family friends Mr. and Mrs. Allen as they visit Bath, England. Catherine is in Bath for the first time. There she meets her friends such as Isabella Thorpe, and goes to balls. Catherine finds herself pursued by Isabella's brother, the rather rough-mannered, slovenly John Thorpe, and by her real love interest, Henry Tilney. She also becomes friends with Eleanor Tilney, Henry's younger sister. Henry captivates her with his view on novels and his knowledge of history and the world. General Tilney (Henry and Eleanor's father) invites Catherine to visit their estate, Northanger Abbey, which, from her reading of Ann Radcliffe's gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho, she expects to be dark, ancient and full of Gothic horrors and fantastical mystery.

    Distressed over the current widespread disinterest inmatrimony among their eminently marriageable offspring, the formidable matriarchs of the ton have taken matters into their own meddling hands with the formation of The Ladies' Society for the Betterment of the Future of Britain. Their first challenge: the Earl of Pennington. 
    Miss Gwendolyn Townsend has seen her late father's estate go to a distant cousin she can't abide ... leaving her well-educated, able to make a perfect curtsy -- and penniless. So imagine her shock when it's discovered that a match had been arranged between herself and Marcus Holcroft, the Earl of Pennington -- one of the most eligible members of London society. Marcus constantly leaves her breathless and confused ... and though she's hesitant to marry a man she's just met, in the end she has no choice. But she makes some conditions first ... 
    Marcus cannot believe that the bride who has been foisted upon him is insisting on rules to their wedding ... and bedding! He's a man who has never had to tempt any woman into his arms. But even more surprising is that Gwendolyn is clearly hiding something -- and it shocks him to think that their exquisite kisses -- followed by his lessons in passionate lovemaking -- wouldn't  be enough to make his wife tell him her every secret. After all, he's promised to be a proper husband -- isn’t it fair to also expect a proper wife?

    Troy thought he knew how the rest of his high school life was going to play out. He figured he'd always spend Friday nights at his secret geek hideout in the school basement playing computer games before going back to the dingy motel room he called home.
    One night, though, a wayward basketball at the gym changes everything. Troy meets Aiden: the captain of the basketball team. Sparks fly between them, but despite being in the same school, they come from two different worlds, and surprises are in store for both of them.
    WARNING: This 11,794-word (about 60 pages) novelette is a steamy read that features explicit scenes featuring gay sex, including oral and anal sex, between a cute lean geek and a hunky young jock, and may be too much for timid readers!
    
    -- JOCK HIGH SCHOOL --
    Most every high school has jocks, but only through Corey Stark's JOCK HIGH SCHOOL anthology series can you experience first-hand the kind of sexually-charged passion possible only between athletic young seniors bursting into adulthood for the first time.

    ***This book contains approximately 7,000 words*** 
    Jacqui Schneider couldn't help it. Everytime the memories of her family's brutal murder haunted her, she had to escape. The only thing that could replace her sorrow was sex...and lots of it. And so Jacqui developed a pattern of self-destruction by sleeping with random men that she picked up at a local hotel bar. She made sure the men were attached and from out of town. That way, there were never any strings attached. 
    Depressed and with no goal in sight, Jacqui continued on with her self-deprecating lifestyle until it all changed one day. Uncle Max, an old family friend, appeared unannounced. He was Jacqui's father's buddy from their former military days and the two have remained close friends since they were discharged. Jacqui was astonished when Uncle Max revealed a secret to her about her father. From those few words, Jacqui's world turned completely upside down. She really didn't know her own father. In fact, she didn't even know much about Uncle Max, except that he visited them for a few days at a time over the years. 
    Download and read the rest of the book to find out what Jacqui's father's secret was and how it turned her world upside down.
