The first in the Barbourville series, A Summer Sentence was originally published in 2005. The current edition features a new cover and updated text. This wholesome romance takes place in McCray County, Tennessee, and begins when an overzealous deputy pulls over Megan Marsh, who’s just passing through on her way to Chicago to start a new life. Hauled before Sheriff Daniel McCray, Megan tries to explain that she didn’t knowingly assault his deputy, but Daniel’s uncle, the county judge, intervenes and sentences her to four weeks of community service.
The sheriff knows his uncle has an ulterior motive in sentencing the lovely stranger to community service, and he’s afraid he knows what that motive is. His uncle would love to see Daniel find a new love after his former fiancée left him behind. But Daniel believes he and the sophisticated Miss Marsh have too little in common despite the powerful attraction between them.
As the summer progresses, not only does that attraction deepen, but they also discover they share similar ambitions for the future—if only his weren’t tied to rural Barbourville while hers lie far north in the inner city of Chicago.
