Pendleton, OR, January 31, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- A newly released novel by Oregon author Shanna Hatfield combines a love of football and romance.
With the approach of the Super Bowl and the end of the NFL season, Hatfield’s book, "Love on the 20-Yard Line," offers football fans the opportunity to enjoy a story focusing on an arena football player and the girl who catches his heart.
Brody Jackson lives and breathes football as a wide receiver for an arena team. Focused on his aspirations to make the NFL, he’s blindsided by the love that intercepts his plans during the first game of the season. Possessing all the skills and talent to be the best at his game, Brody isn’t properly equipped for the playing field of romance.
Successful in business but woefully inept when it comes to men, Haven Haggarty has much to learn. Coached by her outgoing cousin how to pass and receive in the game of love, Haven keeps coming up short of the goal line. Falling for the local arena football team’s handsome wide receiver, Haven realizes she needs to tackle her fears or lose a future with the man of her dreams.
Hatfield began writing romances in February 2010 and her works first published in June 2011 when "The Women of Tenacity" series debuted. She followed those stories with the "Grass Valley Cowboys" series and is currently working on a historical series set in Pendleton, OR, called "Pendleton Petticoats." "Love at the 20-Yard Line" is her 22nd book.
“People like to be entertained, but they also like a happy ending. My goal is to provide readers with both,” said Hatfield. “I want people to read my stories and feel like they’ve made a new friend.”
Hatfield blogs about her adventures in fiction writing, publishing, and promotion at shannahatfield.com. She is a member of Western Writers of America, Women Writing the West, and Romance Writers of America. Her books are available from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Apple, Smashwords, and Kobo.
A graduate from Southern Oregon University with a bachelor’s degree in communications, Hatfield spent ten years as a newspaper journalist before switching gears into marketing. She recently left her “day” job in marketing to pursue writing full-time.
