Football & Lavender by Melanie D. Snitker



What does football and lavender have in common? They are both elements in my newest book, Marrying Raven. I enjoy second chance stories, and Heath and Raven's is no exception. This book was so much fun to write! 

The icing on the cake was that a photographer friend of mine, Jennifer from Jennifer Pitts Photography, took the book's cover image. It's perfect down to the beautiful bride holding a bouquet of lavender. 

Marrying Raven will release March 29th and is available for pre-order now!

Raven Weber hates football. As if her fiancé breaking off their engagement to follow his NFL dream wasn't bad enough, her football-obsessed family only made things worse. Twelve years later, she pours everything into her job as a physical therapist assistant. Helping others never prepared Raven for the day her ex would hobble back into her life. How can she remain professional when spending time with him only reminds her of what they've lost?

The day Heath Shaw walked away from his relationship with Raven, he’d been convinced he was doing it for her. Fulfilling his father’s dream gave him the distraction he needed to get over her. Now he’s back in his hometown with weeks of physical therapy ahead of him before he can escape the past. Running into Raven was going to happen eventually, but he didn't expect her to play a vital role in his recovery. If she's got him second guessing why he left in the first place, what effect will she have on his heart? 

Her meddling family thinks this is a second chance, while Heath's father only wants to squelch what he sees as a distraction. Raven and Heath know they should walk away, but what if they're better together than they ever were apart? 

Releasing March 29th

  6. What do they have in common—you can play football in a field of lavender. Of course, my attention wouldn't be on the football. I love lavender.

    1. Oh, me, too! I'm afraid I wouldn't play well because the lavender would relax me too much and I wouldn't be competitive enough LOL
