Rhonda Laurel

The Blake Boys Book One This quarterback is making the greatest play of his life… Quiet bookstore owner Morgan Reed can’t wait to lie on the beach on her much-needed tropical vacation, but getting tackled by a tall, green-eyed stranger playing touch football isn’t exactly what she had in mind. Neither is falling for said stranger, or going along with the eccentric islander who sends them off with a mock wedding. But all’s fair when it comes to vacation romance, and Morgan has plenty of time to get back to reality when she gets home. When he slams into the beautiful Morgan on the beach and sends her to the infirmary, superstar quarterback Seth Blake insists on helping her recover—if she agrees to share his bungalow with him. Seth is nothing less than smitten, and the best part is that the beauty has no idea who he is. But when he finds out that their little “wedding” was the real thing, Seth finds himself in a sticky situation. Especially when Morgan finds out the man she fell for isn’t at all who he made himself out to be… Keywords: sports romance, football, quarterback hero, BWWM, interracial romance, multicultural romance

Nancy B. Bouchier

Nancy Bouchier traces the increasing importance of amateur sport to Woodstock and Ingersoll, two small nineteenth-century Ontario towns, revealing its intricate ties to urban boosterism and middle-class culture. Focusing on civic holiday celebrations, the establishment of organized clubs for cricket, baseball, and lacrosse, and the rise of spirited urban sports rivalries, Bouchier shows that small town interest in sports was much more than a pale imitation of the sporting life of Canada's major urban centres.

Nick Cutro

For The Love of the Game is Nick Cutro's humorous account of the years he spent as a player, coach, and professional evaluator of American football talent. His maverick career includes decades of work analyzing over three thousand athletes for both college and the professional ranks. The NFL's New York Jets relied on his keen insights as a scout between 1964–1968. During that time, the New York Jets managed to assemble enough talent to win the Super Bowl under the direction of quarterback Joe Namath. Cutro knows football inside and out. He was signed by the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles but an injury forced him to retire. As a star high school and college player he set several records, and his love of the game, youthful heart, and unique style or relating to young players made him an outstanding coach. Hank Stram, the legendary NFL head coach, said that coaching involved finding talent, evaluating talent, and motivating talent. Cutro is a master at all three. For The Love of the Game is a special book about the game of football. The book is a funny collection of memories and stories, mostly focused on author's experiences playing, coaching, and scouting. Few men know and love the game as well or as much as Cutro. His nonfiction memoir is for all football fans, but especially for those who might remember how “things used to be” back in the 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s.Cutro's savvy and funny memoir goes the extra yard.

Frank M. White

A century before Kirby Puckett led the Minnesota Twins to World Series championships, Minnesota was home to countless talented African American baseball players, yet few of them are known to fans today. During the many decades that Major League Baseball and its affiliates imposed a strict policy of segregation, black ballplayers in Minnesota were relegated to a haphazard array of semipro leagues, barnstorming clubs, and loose organizations of all-black teams—many of which are lost to history. They Played for the Love of the Game recovers that history by sharing stories of African American ballplayers in Minnesota, from the 1870s to the 1960s, through photos, artifacts, and spoken histories passed through the generations. Author Frank White’s own father was one of the top catchers in the Twin Cities in his day, a fact that White did not learn until late in life. While the stories tell of denial, hardship, and segregation, they are highlighted by athletes who persevered and were united by their love of the sport.
