From the USA TODAY Bestselling author of Scoring Wilder, comes a sexy new STANDALONE novel. I despise Erik Winter.He's arrogant and cruel-a man I wouldn't wish on my worst enemy-and by some twisted turn of fate, he's my new Olympic gymnastics coach.I've had to contend with gruff coaches in the past, but Erik is far worse. His stern demeanor complements a body built for intimidation, and his reprimands come from a mouth so cunning, I know it could strip me of my defenses-if I let it.Though each of us would love to be rid of the other forever, we are bound to each other by need and necessity. I'm his rising star, his best shot at proving himself to his critics. And without a coach, I have zero chance of winning gold in Rio.The easiest way forward would be to wave a white flag and make peace with the man I'll be sharing close quarters with for the foreseeable future, but he is intent on war.Fine. By. Me.If he pushes me, I'll push back harder. If he wants to test me, to play with my head, I'll show him just how many boundaries I'm willing to cross. Because I know it's not a choice between winning or warring-not if you can have them both. At the end of it all, I plan on leaving Rio with gold around my neck and his icy heart in the palm of my hand.

Athletics and politics collide in a critical event for Nazi Germany and the contemporary world. The torch relay—that staple of Olympic pageantry—first opened the summer games in 1936 in Berlin. Proposed by the Nazi Propaganda Ministry, the relay was to carry the symbolism of a new Germany across its route through southeastern and central Europe. Soon after the Wehrmacht would march in jackboots over the same terrain. The Olympic festival was a crucial part of the Nazi regime's mobilization of power. Nazi Games offers a superb blend of history and sport. The narrative includes a stirring account of the international effort to boycott the games, derailed finally by the American Olympic Committee and the determination of its head, Avery Brundage, to participate. Nazi Games also recounts the dazzling athletic feats of these Olympics, including Jesse Owens's four gold-medal performances and the marathon victory of Korean runner Kitei Son, the Rising Sun of imperial Japan on his bib.

Women are, and have been for many years, actively involved as players, supporters and co-ordinators in a range of sports and yet they are often missing from, or sidelined in, accounts of the history of these sports. Commenting first on the lack of inclusion of women in British sports history, the book goes on to examine aspects of women’s participation between the late-nineteenth century and the mid-twentieth century more broadly. It draws together some of the latest research undertaken by international scholars working in the field, and includes case studies about golf, bridge, rowing, figure skating and athletics. Between them the chapters demonstrate that women enjoyed mixed fortunes in sport. They positively highlight the scope of participation, as well as the complex interactions and responses that participation generated on account of life stage, social class, ethnicity and national identity across time and place. The incorporated methodological and theoretical approaches invite readers to reconsider existing sport historiography and point to new directions for future research. This book was first published as a special issue of Sport in History.

Love is worth more than the sum of its hearts… CPA Merrit Callahan learned early not to let passion unravel her orderly life. Back in college she fell hard for a football player, only to be devastated when she discovered he’d been duping her all along—dared by his teammates to score with his bookish tutor. Now, after her back-stabbing fiancé breaks off their engagement, Merrit flees to Baltimore to escape the fallout. After eight years in the pros, a series of concussions have forced Heath Gibson out of the NFL. The transition from player to coach for the Baltimore Blaze hasn’t been smooth, but finding himself face-to-face with Merrit Callahan makes the ride even rockier. He’s been filled with regret ever since a stupid team prank caused Merrit to run away from him a decade earlier. Merrit’s stunned to reconnect with Heath. And despite the authenticity of his reignited feelings this time around, Merrit’s got her mind set on payback. She’ll give Heath a night he won’t forget and then walk away. But Heath’s hold on her heart—and the rest of her body—is difficult to break… Includes a preview of the next Out of Bounds novel, Risky Game.

Drawing on controversies straight out of the headlines, Pielke looks at doping, match fixing, fake amateurism, and other ways of breaking the rules.

Der Graf von Monte Christo ist ein Abenteuerroman von Alexandre Dumas. Das Werk hat viele nachfolgende Künstler beeinflusst und wurde zu einem Klassiker der Weltliteratur. Zur Handlung: Der junge Seemann Edmond Dantès kehrt mit der "Pharao"", einem Schiff des Reeders Morrel, am 24. Februar 1815 nach Marseille zurück. Dantès, der an Bord Erster Offizier ist, genießt die Wertschätzung Morrels und soll zum Kapitän befördert werden. Auch sein privates Glück scheint perfekt: Er liebt die schöne Katalanin Mercédès, die Hochzeit des Paares ist beschlossene Sache. Während der Fahrt der "Pharao"" ist der bisherige Kapitän Leclère, ein Anhänger Napoleons, verstorben. Auf dem Sterbebett vertraute er Dantès ein Paket an und befahl ihm, es dem Großmarschall Henri-Gratien Bertrand auf der Insel Elba auszuhändigen, wohin Napoleon ins Exil verbannt wurde. Dantès erfüllt den letzten Wunsch des Kapitäns, erhält auf Elba wiederum einen Brief Napoleons und den Auftrag, diesen in Paris einem bestimmten Mann zu überbringen.... Alexandre Dumas der Ältere (1802-1870) war ein französischer Schriftsteller. Ein Markenzeichen von Dumas' Romanen sind fiktive oder pseudohistorische Protagonisten (zum Beispiel der Musketier d'Artagnan), deren Abenteuer in einen Kontext historischer Ereignisse und historischer Persönlichkeiten gestellt werden. Die bekanntesten, immer wieder aufgelegten und nicht nur von Jugendlichen gelesenen Romane sind: Die drei Musketiere, Zwanzig Jahre danach, Königin Margot, Der Graf von Monte Christo und Der Mann mit der eisernen Maske, Das Halsband der Königin.
