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.

    Kyle’s best friend Marshall resurfaces and he’s in a lot of trouble. Can the men at Kiss of Leather convince a former Dom to take on the mouthy sub?
     
    Master Derek and his new sub Corey have signed a contract and enjoy their first scene together. The love between them is strong and Derek is as protective of his boy as ever. The only thing left that would make their world perfect would be to bring Corey’s ex-Dom and abuser to justice.
     
    The legal firm that represents Kiss of Leather is charged with hiring a private investigator to flush out the man who orchestrated Corey’s gang rape. Stone Manning is hesitant to take the job, though. He was once wrongly accused in the death of a sub and swore never to enter a BDSM club again. But he owes attorney Glen Sharp his life after the lawyer got him acquitted.
     
    Their meeting is disrupted when Kyle’s missing friend Marshall calls for help. Master Josh promises to help the mouthy Marshall get back on his feet under one condition: Marshall must sign a six month D/s contract as a fulltime sub and prove he can fully submit to a man as well as learn to respect those around him.
     
    Stone Manning suddenly finds himself charged with taming the brattiest sub ever. In truth, the bigger the brat, the more his heart races with excitement. Marshall promises to be just the type of challenge to inspire Stone to be a Master again. As Stone learns more about him, he sees the pain that Marshall has always tried to numb with drugs and alcohol. Stone also sees a man he could love—if he can ever reach him.
     
    In the meantime, Stone and his investigative partner, Chuck, continue to search for Corey’s attacker. The abusive Dom appears to have gone underground. But what they don’t realize is that the closer they get to their prey, the more dangerous he becomes.

    Everybody loves Miss Molly: a lively 72-year-old who gets a huge kick out of the retro scene and everything associated with it — the clothes, the hairstyles, the dances and especially her newly-renovated vintage trailer!  
    Tammy, Georgie and Layla are thrilled with her reaction to their carefully-planned surprise, but their joy turns to concern when Rosa — an unexpected guest at the vintage trailer rally — tells them bluntly that sweet Miss Molly is in big trouble.  
    They quickly learn that Molly is facing the prospect of having to sell the home she has lived in for fifty years, after her finances have taken a disastrous turn. Molly keeps her woes to herself while she teaches the retro crowd how to jive and faces down the card sharks at gin rummy, but bit by bit Georgie, Rosa and the team put together the pieces and find out what went wrong.  
    What they discover leaves them both astounded and angry. Someone close to Molly is to blame for this situation - but who? Is it one of the waifs and strays that she welcomes into her home, or is it someone professing to be a good friend?  
    This is a case that is very close to the hearts of Georgie’s little band of amateur sleuths, because one of the ‘lost lambs’ that Molly once took under her wing is none other than Tammy Dyson, the retro set’s “Rockabilly Princess” and girlfriend of Jerry B. Goode, Georgie’s brother.  
    There is no way that Tammy is going to let anyone get away with doing the wrong thing by Miss Molly!
