Jodi Thomas Ransom Canyon Giveaway #6

Jodi’s back for another Ransom Canyon Giveaway. YeeHaw!!!

Indigo Lake

It was a dark and stormy night…

I’ve always wanted to write that line. I  think all writers do. So I decided to give it a try in Indigo Lake, a book about a hundred-year-old feud between two families. And, of course, my hero is from one and my heroine is from the other.

You will love reading this story which pulls out the richness of legends and superstitions among the early families who settled West Texas.

  • If you started a story with It was a dark and stormy night… what would your second sentence be?

To enter for a chance to win a copy of the sixth book in the Ransom Canyon series, leave a comment below. Winner will be selected on Monday, July 17.

BONUS: The novella, Winter’s Camp, is included in the back of Indigo Lake!

  1. It was a dark and stormy night and Jessica knew the horses needed to be put up in the barn. So where was Micah? He should have been home hours ago to tend to the horses. Something must be wrong.

    I would absolutely LOVE to win a copy of Jodi’s book, Indigo Lake. Thank you for the chance.

  2. It was a dark and stormy night, the hair on her back rose as the crunch of leaves echoed off to the side in the trees, as she made her way down to the road. Oh why did she forget her cell phone when she left the house. It was only a short trip, what could go wrong.. well a breakdown for one thing, then the snap of a tree branch.. her panic rose as she began to run toward town…

    1. I want to read the rest of the story…

  3. It was a dark and stormy night, the whole town and country side didn’t have electricity. Victoria found a flashlight and headed to the barn to check on the horses because they were overly agitated.

  4. It was a dark and stormy night and Melissa’s car just ran out of gas.

    1. Ok, you’ve got my interest!

  5. It was a dark and stormy night. The barn door flew open as the wind ripped thru the wide path between horse stalls. The horses were on edge as they could feel the tension of the storm in the air. Ivy struggled to grab the bard door to close it as the wind whipped her gingham skirts around her legs.

    Oooh, that was FUN!!!!!! 😀

    1. Good writing and glad you had fun!

  6. It was a dark and stormy night and she felt a blast of paralyzing fear when she remembered the last storm like this.

  7. It was a dark and stormy night. My hands gripped the wheel tighter as I drove toward my final destination. Yes, meeting him would be the last thing I did.

  8. It was a dark and stormy night but who cares – I have a roaring fire, a good book, and my honey snoring next to me on one side and my cats purring on the other. All is good!!!

  9. It was a dark and stormy night…but I’m really glad to be home, safe and comfy with my son and cairn terrier (my second son) and my things about me. The dark and stormy night can be one of the soul or the body rather than outside nature, doncha think?

  10. It was a dark and stormy night… you could hear the roar of the wind and the slashing of the rain… good thing I am inside!

  11. It was a dark and stormy night… The dog was hiding under the bed, afraid of the thunder. The power had gone out and the candles I lit were making weird shadows on the wall. A sudden pounding on my front door deepened the disquiet I was feeling.

    I look forward to a marathon read of this series once I get this and Wild Horse Springs. Best wishes for the successful release of Indigo Springs.

    1. Thanks, Patricia. I am loving this series too!

  12. It was a dark and stormy night, the lightning flashed and the thunder boomed before she counted to three. Where did it strike? Was it the barn? The ready to harvest wheat?

    What a fun post!

    1. Thanks for sharing, Alice. It has been fun to read!

  13. It was a dark and stormy night and I regretted making a date with a total stranger. This was something that i would regret.

  14. It was a dark and stormy night, a night filled with misgivings, deep thoughts and an appointment which would be unforgettable.

    1. Thanks for sharing, Anne. I have enjoyed reading the responses.

  15. It was a dark and stormy night. Unfortunately no one was home except for me and I was expecting a visit from the devil.

  16. It was a dark stormy night and my Shih Tzu was overly terrified and this has actually been the truth as of late and especially today as two thunderstorms came thru and Scout was panicking all day so he wouldn’t have did any good trying to get up any horses or cattle LOL

    1. Storms can really be terrifying for us and our animals.

    2. Glenda,

  17. It was a dark and stormy night, and unlike the depraved thrill he expected at the violence echoed in the skies, the view through the waving curtains delivered shudders through his bodyless soul. He watched, both frightened and relieved, as the estranged lovers shattered through the remaining chains, breaking the curse and love’s blinding light burst forth, creating a peaceful oasis and reuniting for eternity what should never have been separated in the first place, him from his woman.

    1. And thanks for the chance to win one of your books!!

      1. Thanks, Michelle, for sharing and participating in the contest.

  18. It was a dark and stormy night all right–only the It was a he, and knight had nothing to do with the time of day. Storm was over six feet tall–broad shouldered and eyes as black a ebony. He wore his shiny coat-of-army with power mixed with honor and a kind of glory that made her want to be with him forever. But of course, that was impossible.

  19. It was a dark stormy night when I met the love of my life. It was the best night of my life.

  20. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading your very creative responses! Thanks to all of you for participating in my Ransom Canyon Roundup. I am so excited for INDIGO LAKE and know you will love this story!
