JUST FOR THE SUMMER is a contemporary romance released through the Bliss Imprint of Entangled Publishing.

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?

What Readers Are Saying

"It was fun, flirty, sweet, and a great family story."

The Autumn Review

"Lake Bliss is a wonderful little town where I want to live! The community is awesome and I love how everyone wants to give their input on what Dani should title her cookbook. Just For The Summer is a great story about forgiveness, hope and love. If you are looking for a sweet romantic read that is hard to put down and will have you both laughing and crying, I suggest you try Just For The Summer."

Amy R.

"Jenna Rutland presented this beautiful story with excellent description that made me feel like I was experiencing all the emotions of the heroine, Dani. Also I'm a real sucker for love, little boys, and playful dogs -- they're what life is all about! I hope there will be a sequel to this wonderful story!"

Sharon Reaman

“Very flirty...very funny and very emotional love story.”

Barb M.

"I loved Just for the Summer! It was so well written and a perfect length! Many times I feel that love stories can be somewhat "predictable", but that was not the case with this book at all. It grabbed my interest from page 1 and I never wanted to stop reading it once I started. It made me laugh some, cry some and through it all, I grew to love the characters so much. I will definitely be reading more books by Jenna Rutland."

Hot man for hire…

Rachel Clarke is a single mom with three boys, and she needs help. Now. Unfortunately, her only option is John MacDonald—her high school sweetheart and the disgraced hometown hero who’s just returned to Lake Bliss. He’s perfect for the job. He cooks, he cleans, and he’s amazing with kids. He’s also still far too sinfully hot for Rachel’s comfort…

Rachel is just as gorgeous as John remembers. But in order for his new youth activity center to be a success, John needs Rachel’s help to earn the town’s trust back. In exchange, he’ll take care of her boys for the summer while she works. Except keeping their relationship strictly business is harder than he imagined. But summer can’t last forever, and when it ends, so will their arrangement—and John’s time in Lake Bliss.

What Readers Are Saying

“It deserves the 5 stars because it does an excellent job of not only telling that story but also developing a depth to Rachel and John's emotions that made me hurt for them and also want to smack them and yell at them a few times. I could sympathize with everything they went through, just as if it was my own life. When a writer can hijack my feelings like that, I have no other choice but to give them 5 stars and tell everyone they need to read it!!!”


“This story was sweet and left me very much satisfied by the end.”

Jennifer Valencia

“ Such an engaging story that keeps you interested… I give it a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!”
