Meet 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 football romance story, Touchback, available on Amazon.

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.



Dawna's Newest Release - Touchback

When he gets a second chance to prove himself on the field, will a forbidden attraction permanently sideline him or hand him the winning score?

Jett Taylor can’t afford to be benched again. When a drunken night with the wrong hookup sidelines him for his first two years in the pros, the former Best-in-College athlete eagerly jumps at the opportunity to join a new team. But after securing a backup quarterback position to his idol, the promising young field general is emotionally blitzed when he meets the star quarterback’s beautiful daughter.

Johannah Thorne Scott owes her father everything. Hiding her failing health from her widowed dad, the twenty-one-year-old is determined to see him finish his stellar championship career strong. But when she’s struck by the dazzling blue eyes of a gorgeous stranger, their instant chemistry puts it all in jeopardy.

Despite his agent’s warnings that even a lustful glance in Johannah’s direction will gut his future, Jett still believes he can have both football and the girl too. But Johannah’s life-threatening secret could call a permanent timeout on all her relationships, including a growing love for the man she’s not supposed to want.

Can Jett and Johannah make it through to the end of the game, or will they fumble and lose everything forever?

Touchbackis the steamy first STANDALONE book in the Scott Family novels. Football knowledge is not necessary to enjoy the captivating characters, emotional rollercoasters, and happily ever after in Dawna Raver’s sizzling page-turner.

The Indulging Series

Indulging in Irelyn: A First Love Romantic Suspense  (Indulging series Book 1) 

She was off limits. He didn’t care.

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 whom he conjured that painful day on the football field. After many one night stands, only she hold his heart. His seraph. His angel.

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.

Can Irelyn and Zolt defy the odds and find a second chance at love? Or, will the events set in motion years ago keep them apart forever?

The story continues in Being Zolt.

Being Zolt: A First Love Second Chance Romance (Indulging series Book 2)

“Green, Zolt. I’m wearing green.”

In Indulging in Irelyn, Zolt Hamil had found his seraph, his angel, and the hazy memory of a woman had become suddenly real. Then five words took her away from him, and Zolt is sent into a tailspin of nameless women, alcohol, and drugs. 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.

Can Zolt and Irelyn mend their broken relationship and find a way back to each other? Or will Marcus succeed with his plans to separate this fated pair forever?

Saving Kenna: A Standalone Second Chance First Love Romance (Indulging series Book 3)

“The problem is I can’t love you and I can’t hate you. I need to just nothing you. Loving you hurts too much.”

Irish born, Sloan Sullivan is a man with a past he can’t escape. Everything about him, from his identity to his profession, is a lie.

Until he met Kenna, he didn’t think twice about his fraudulent life. Now, his past is threatening his future and preventing him from saving the woman he loves.

Kenna Campbell has loved Sloan from the moment she saw him. Though he pushes her away at every turn, and his alpha male tendencies frustrate her, she never leaves.

In a heartbreaking turn of events, Kenna falls prey to Marcus Xavier’s evil game. Though she’s physically survived brutality at the hands of two men, her emotional and mental scars refuse to heal, and she wonders if she’s broken beyond repair.

Is love enough to keep these two together, or will the monsters from both their pasts destroy them forever?

Saving Kenna is a second chance, suspenseful romance set in the Indulging Series world. It is not necessary to read Indulging in Irelyn or Being Zolt first, but I hope you’ll want to read their stories after reading Saving Kenna.
