He wanted her the first time he saw her. It didn't matter that he was on stage in front of a room full of reporters, or that his publicist was telling him to move on, or that she was asking him a question about racing. One look at her "just been bedded" hair — completely at odds with her deliciously prim appearance — and Ty Riggs is hooked.
Corrine Bellows is one of the woefully few women in a male profession: sports reporting. In a field where "Hey, sweetheart, can you fetch me a cup of copy" is part of her job description, she's determined to keep things professional. And while interviewing Ty Riggs, the hottest new driver on and off the track, is a major scoop, Corrine knows that she is in major trouble when it becomes clear that Ty wants so much more and is determined to get it. As things heat up between them, Corrine finds herself on shakier ground. Her big secret just may destroy everything.

Review/Rating: 4 cups of scalding dose of caffeine thats guaranteed to keep you turning the page
Crossing the Line is the third book set in the fast paced world of race car driving and with stakes that high, allegations of cheating can't be taken lightly.  Ty Riggs, current golden boy of the race tracks has been having a tough time, keeping secrets can do that to a guy.  But getting involve with a journalist is downright asking for trouble.  Cori Bellowes needs to prove herself.  Being the only female sports journalist covering the racing circuit is tough but getting down and dirty with the guy she's supposed to do a story on is added complication.  Ty and Cori's attraction is off the charts since the moment they met, but if both of them are keeping secrets, how is it all going to end?  Part of the Hard Driving Series, Ms. North takes us back into the highly competitive world of race car driving and this time its Ty Riggs turn to get his own story.  He meets his match in Cori, a passionate sports journalist who happens to be in a highly misogynistic field.  Their sexual chemistry is evident right from the start and like the previous books, the pacing is fast and yes to some readers its an insta-lust/insta-love kind of thing.  But its also a page turner, with a little bit of edgy suspense since no one can predict how everything will play out in the end.
