Exciting New Series By Jodi Thomas!

Winter's CampNew York Times bestselling author Jodi Thomas has captivated readers around the world with her sweeping, heartfelt family sagas. To introduce her brand-new series, Jodi tells the story behind the unforgiving Texas landscape and how one man claims Ransom Canyon—and a timid beauty—for his legacy…

A wanderer’s life was all James Randall Kirkland had known since he was an orphaned boy in San Antonio. And while years of adventure had satisfied his younger self, now he’s longing to put down roots of his own and is prepared to go it alone. But when he sees the Apache slave woman with the startling blue eyes, the course of his journey is changed forever.

Ever since the Comanche raided her village and took her for their own, Millie hasn’t known any kind of freedom. After years of being outcast, beaten and traded from tribe to tribe, she’s unprepared for James’s patient tone and gentle ways. Still, as her handsome savior slowly earns her trust, Millie struggles between desire and fear, sure it’s just a matter of time before James tires of her and her burgeoning feelings are nothing but another wasted memory.

While Winter’s Camp is a historical, the rest of the series will be contemporary. The first book, Ransom Canyon, will be out in less than two weeks on August 25th. I love both of these stories and I think you will too.


Ransom CanyonRancher Staten Kirkland, the last descendant of Ransom Canyon’s founding father, is rugged and practical to the last. No one knows that when his troubling memories threaten to overwhelm him, he runs to lovely, reclusive Quinn O’Grady…or that she has her own secret that no one living knows.

Young Lucas Reyes has his eye on the prize—college, and the chance to become something more than a ranch hand’s son. But one night, one wrong decision, will set his life on a course even he hadn’t imagined.

Yancy Grey is running hard from his troubled past. He doesn’t plan to stick around Ransom Canyon, just long enough to learn the town’s weaknesses and how to use them for personal gain. Only Yancy, a common criminal since he was old enough to reach a car’s pedals, isn’t prepared for what he encounters.

In this dramatic new series, the lives, loves and ambitions of four families will converge, set against a landscape that can be as unforgiving as it is beautiful, where passion, property and pride are worth fighting—and even dying—for.

    • Hi Giselle! Thank you for coming by. I’m so glad you read Winter’s Camp. James Kirkland found something a lot better than a horse!

      I’m excited that I was able to help get her there to Ralls. And glad I’m coming with her. Jodi is such a warm friendly person and she loves to talk about her books and interesting historical facts. A great speaker. You’re in for a treat.

  6. Love Jodi’s books and this series sound different. I am reading The Legacy of Copper creek by R. C. Ryan.

    • Hi Quilt Lady! I’m so happy to see an old friend. The Legacy of Copper Creek sounds interesting. She’s a very good author. Keep looking for good books. You never know what you’ll find.

      I’ve entered you in the drawing. Good luck!!!

    • Hi BN100! Thank you for coming to join our party! That’s a great book by Nora. There are so many wonderful books out there to read. Even if I read twenty books a day for the rest of my life, I’d never read them all and I hate that. Makes me depressed.

      I’ve entered you in the drawing. Good Luck!

  7. I am currently on book three, KANE’S DESTINY, of Cheryl Pierson’s Kane Trilogy. The series is for young teens, but a good, quick read for adults. I am going to try it out on my grandson’s next. I am having my husband read it now. I also have a YA anthology, THIS SUMMER STORM, in which she has a story that I am working on. Am enjoying it too.

    • Hi Patricia!! So happy to see an old friend. I LOVE Cheryl Pierson’s books! She just really knows how to tell a good story and lingers in your mind long after you finish. Some of the young adult books are better than the adult ones. We’re living in an exciting time for a reader. There are tons of good books out there if you just look for them.

      I’ve entered you in the drawing, my dear! Good luck.
