"A marvelous addition to the literature of inspirational sports stories." - Booklist (Starred Review) "This remarkable and inspiring story shines." - Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) "Crossing the Line will not just leave you with hope, but also ideas on how to make that hope transferable” - New York Times bestselling author Wes Moore An inspiring memoir of defying the odds from Kareem Rosser, captain of the first all-black squad to win the National Interscholastic Polo championship. Born and raised in West Philadelphia, Kareem thought he and his siblings would always be stuck in “The Bottom”, a community and neighborhood devastated by poverty and violence. Riding their bicycles through Philly’s Fairmount Park, Kareem’s brothers discover a barn full of horses. Noticing the brothers’ fascination with her misfit animals, Lezlie Hiner, founder of The Work to Ride stables, offers them their escape: an after school job in exchange for riding lessons. What starts as an accidental discovery turns into a love for horseback riding that leads the Rossers to discovering their passion for polo. Pursuing the sport with determination and discipline, Kareem earns his place among the typically exclusive players in college, becoming part of the first all-Black national interscholastic polo championship team—all while struggling to keep his family together. Crossing the Line: A Fearless Team of Brothers and the Sport That Changed Their Lives Forever is the story of bonds of brotherhood, family loyalty, the transformative connection between man and horse, and forging a better future that comes from overcoming impossible odds.

I just need to rehab—a boatload of rehab—and who’d have thought I could do it on the boys’ hockey team?

I’ve worked my tail off getting my team in a position to win the championships—hopefully in front of major college scouts, too—so what’s a guy to do when a figure skater ends up as our new goalie?

In this gripping companion novella, she tells the story of Lila and Lincoln, who discover that sometimes it’s worth crossing the line for love… Lila McCormick first met Lincoln Turner when tragedy struck both their lives.

Hurting Lila is the last thing Lincoln wanted. For two years, her letters have been the only thing getting him through the day. Admitting his feelings would cross a line he’s never dared breach before. But Lincoln will do whatever it takes to fix his mistakes, earn Lila’s forgiveness-and finally win a chance to be with the girl he loves.

A relationship between them is strictly forbidden, but they are drawn to each other like moths to a flame. Neither would dare cross the line, until now. He calls me PG, short for Paisley Grove, and my heart skips a beat. Nobody calls me that but Hercules Lord, a guy I've had a crush on since we first locked eyes in high school. Even though our attraction has always been strong, Hercules and I could never be together. The hate between our families runs deep enough to create an invisible line in the sand that neither of us has ever dared to cross. But that's never stopped us from gazing longingly at each other from across a crowded room. And we've always been cordial to each other but never true friends. Then there was that night seven years ago. I bet Hercules doesn't know that he's my first. Yet here we are again, locking eyes like old times. As usual, my heart skips beats as desire spreads down my spine like a warm kiss. This moment feels so sweet, fulfilling, and so right, but yet and still, our families would disapprove. However, tonight is very different from the past. Our raw desire cannot be contained. Maybe it's because Hercules and I are older, wiser, and finally ready to cross the line. This standalone must-read billionaire romance has plenty of angst, steam, and romance that'll keep you turning the pages; it also ends with happily ever after.

A hot new standalone in the series that's been called "A total, utter must read." - Book Fanatic Recovering from a pulled groin muscle isn’t exactly how I planned to spend my much-needed summer vacation. But being nursed back to health by my gorgeous friend Bailey, who’s just graduated from medical school, doesn’t exactly sound like a hardship. We spend a week together at my family’s beach house, a week of swimming and barbecues, a week of entertaining my little cousins and sleeping right across the hall from each other.

From 1947, when Jackie Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, through 1959, when the Boston Red Sox became the last Major League team to integrate, more than a hundred African American baseball players crossed the color line and made it to the Major Leagues. Each of these players is profiled in this comprehensive book, which includes their statistics and capsule biographies, their triumphs and trials. Some of these players became superstars of the game and eventual Hall of Famers—Jackie Robinson, Ernie Banks, Hank Aaron, Roberto Clemente, Roy Campanella, and Bob Gibson; most were average players. All were pioneers, facing down the enormous difficulties of integrating organized baseball. The authors provide a new preface and appendix for this Bison Books edition.

Sharing secrets and stories, tales from the track, and insights into her personal life, Danica reflects on her extraordinary rise from a ten-year-old go-kart champion to the most successful woman in the history of American racing. Danica Patrick's life moves at 220 mph. She drives every race and lives every day like she has something to prove—and she does. As a 5-foot 2-inch, 100-pound woman, she had to qualify a little quicker and race a little faster than the boys—just to earn the respect she would otherwise be given if she weren't the "girl on the track, driving the princess mobile." But you don't get to be an IndyCar driver without talent and determination. Danica is living proof that if you work hard and aim high, you can do whatever you set your mind to, that you can rise to any challenge, and that what makes you different is what makes you great. An inspiration to all, Crossing the Line offers Danica's unique perspective on how to compete in life, how to stand out, and how to get the respect and attention you deserve.

She has a job she loves, friends who care about her, and a fresh start in an apartment of her own. She can finally put the horrors of the past behind her. Or so she thinks. When the past merges with the present, Hallie is soon feeling like the scared and vulnerable thirteen-year-old of ten years ago.

What she doesn't expect is the help to come in the form of Sawyer Mitchell, a Close Protection Officer who looks like he should be starring in a Hollywood movie rather than watching her every move. For Sawyer, the assignment to protect Hallie is like any other assignment he's taken on. He'll do what he needs to do and then walk away. He never gets close to a client, it makes protecting them all the harder if he does. All that changes when he meets Hallie. He's inexplicably drawn to her, knowing instantly she isn't like anyone else he's protected. Can Sawyer protect Hallie and keep his feelings for her under control, or will he cross a line, putting both of them in danger?
