About Dawna Raver
Smart ass by nature, writer by accident.
Dawna Raver didn't always want to be a writer, but now the voices in her head won't shut the f**k up and the stories keep coming.
The Indulging Series was her first new adult romance series, but she has a new sports romance story, Heart Punched, coming November 2021.
When she's not spending time in her fantasy world, Dawna loves NFL football, reading all kinds of romance stories, and pretending she's a top chef in the kitchen---even though experiments often lead to ordering out.
Oh, and fawning over her dogs and husband, sometimes in that order.

NFL quarterback Zolt Hamil was America's heartthrob until a career-ending injury changed his life. Years later, that injury still haunts him, so does the hallucination of a young, sable-eyed, blonde beauty he conjured that painful day on the football field. After many one-night stands, only she holds his heart— his beautiful seraph.
On the first day at his new job at a law firm in Scottsdale, Arizona, Zolt comes face to face with his hallucination, Irelyn Wilkes. Their star-crossed connection and explosive passion for each other pulls them together, and this time, Zolt refuses to let her slip from his life.
But Irelyn has her own demons to fight, and her controlling boyfriend is one of them. He doesn't take kindly to other people playing with his toys, and he'll stop at nothing to keep her by his side.

But when he realizes that Irelyn lied to him, he sobers up and sets into motion a public rescue, making an even greater enemy of Marcus Xavier. Marcus doesn’t take kindly to people taking what is his, and he’s not about to let Zolt and Irelyn ride into the sunset without a fight. He’s already murdered her brother; taking out Zolt Hamil would make his day.
