Dani Sullivan has come to Lake Bliss to write her latest cookbook and take a breather. After the year she’s had, she deserves a summer retreat to reevaluate priorities and make peace with past decisions. But from the moment single dad and sheriff Matt Reagan shows up, she has a hard time convincing herself that a life away from Lake Bliss could beat the life she might have here.

Recently divorced Matt is ready for a new relationship, but he doesn’t want short-term—his son needs permanence, and so does Matt’s heart. Unfortunately, it’s the smart-mouthed and sinfully sexy Ms. Sullivan who catches his eye. But when Matt learns Dani’s secrets, will he still want her to stay? Or will her chance for love last just for the summer?


Jenna Rutland writes stories of love, laughter and happily ever after. Her debut release, JUST FOR THE SUMMER,  a contemporary romance, released through the Bliss imprint of Entangled Publishing in March 2013.

Well, March flew by, didn’t it? Here in SE Michigan, we had plenty of snow this winter (actually hit an all-time record!) And even though we can still get snow in April, it’s not typical. After a long winter, there’s something hopeful about April. The tulips and daffodils pek out to brave the new spring. Buds appear on trees. It’s the promise of a colorful, mild temperature spring. Wishing you a beautiful April!!

Let’s see, what’s new with me. I’ve been working on edits for Lake Bliss book #2, with a July release date. My mind has been busy with thoughts of future stories, all contemporary, but some novellas too, which is new for me.

Our wonderful son has relocated to Southern Ohio where he landed an amazing job. We are so very proud of him, but I miss him a lot. Now Mr. Rutland and I are empty nesters!! I can’t believe how quiet it is here. It takes some getting used to!

My sister from Tennessee is coming home for a visit this month and I’m very excited about that–even though we’ll be taking our elderly mom to her doctors’ visits, etc. My big sis and I are so much alike, and we always have a lots of laughs whenever we’re together.

Thanks for stopping by!
