DAY 4 of our Book Gifts Christmas Advent Calendar - A Promise in Defiance by Heather Blanton (Romance in the Rockies Series) **Special Offer**


A Promise in Defiance by Heather Blanton
Romance in the Rockies Series

Bestselling author Heather Blanton brings readers the third book in the highly acclaimed Christian Western Romance in the Rockies Series--a gripping tale of two men with dark pasts and the women who could make them...or break them. 

The Reformed Saloon-Owner and Pimp... When Charles McIntyre founded the Wild West town of Defiance, he was more than happy to rule in hell rather than serve in heaven. But things have changed. Now, he has faith, a new wife...and a ten-year-old half-breed son. Infamous madam Delilah Goodnight wants to take it all away from him. How can he protect his kingdom and his loved ones from her schemes without falling back on his past? How does he fight evil if not with evil? 

The Redeemed Gunman... Logan Tillane carries a Bible in his hand, wears a gun on his hip, and fights for lost souls any way he can. Newly arrived in Defiance, he has trouble, though, telling saints from sinners. The challenge only worsens when Delilah flings open the doors to the scandalous Crystal Chandelier Saloon and Brothel. She and the new preacher have opposite plans for the town. One wants to save it, one wants to lead it straight to hell. 

The Reaping... For Tillane and McIntyre, finding redemption was a long, hard road. God's grace has washed away their sins, but the consequences remain and God will not be mocked. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap...and the harvest is finally at hand.

Only 0.99 December 4th - 6th!

"Heather Blanton is blessed with a natural storytelling ability, an "old soul" wisdom, and a wide expansive heart. Her characters are vividly drawn, and in the western settings where life can be hard, over quickly, and seemingly without meaning, she reveals Larger Hands holding everyone and everything together." --Mark Richard, Executive Producer, AMC's Hell on Wheels, and PEN/Ernest Hemingway Award winner

 "Love, love, love Ms. Blanton's ability to weave a skillful tale that captures and carries you from her first words to the end. Compelling story of "Going West" and all that entails in the lives of these ladies in Defiance." --Author Diane Gates

"Captivating story of the town of Defiance. I enjoyed the characters, their struggles, their love and their faith. I will reread them again." --Amazon review
 
Heather Blanton
A former journalist, Heather is an avid researcher and skillfully weaves truth in among fictional story lines. She loves exploring the American West, especially ghost towns and museums. She has walked parts of the Oregon Trail, ridden horses through the Rockies, climbed to the top of Independence Rock, and even held an outlaw's note in her hand. 

Heather is the independent bestselling author of several Christian Westerns, including the Romance in the Rockies series, which has sold over 40,000 copies. Intrigued by the concept of three good sisters stranded in a lawless Colorado mining town, a few notable Hollywood producers have requested the script for her first book in that series, A Lady in Defiance. Heather’s writing is gritty and realistic. In fact, her books have been compared to AMC’s Hell on Wheels series, as well as the legendary Francine Rivers book, Redeeming Love. 

She writes Westerns because she grew up on a steady diet of Bonanza, Gunsmoke, and John Wayne movies. Her most fond childhood memory is of sitting next to her father, munching on popcorn, and watching Lucas McCain unload that Winchester!


Heather says...
The best thing about Christmas for her is... getting a cup of coffee and having my prayer time in the lights of a Christmas tree in the pre-dawn quiet. That is so peaceful. Sublime, really.

This year is special because... we moved my momma from a nursing home in Florida to one near my hometown in Western North Carolina. It's a double-blessing: I get to see her AND my mountains more often!

BOOK TOUR - Rescued by Love (Love in Bloom: The Ryders) by Melissa Foster

COMING SOON
The Ryders are a series of stand-alone romances that may also be enjoyed as part of the larger Love in Bloom series. These hot contemporary romance novels feature alpha male heroes and sexy, empowered women. They're flawed, funny, passionate, and relatable to readers who enjoy passionate contemporary romance and women's fiction.

In RESCUED BY LOVE...
As the daughter of a world-renowned fashion designer, Addison Dahl enjoyed a privileged life attending the most sought after parties, traveling around the world, and having anything she wanted. Until she broke free and went against her father's wishes, needing to prove to herself--and to him--that she could make it on her own. Now she's ready to take her adventures in a new direction and sets her sights on roughing it in the wilderness.

Jake Ryder followed in his father's footsteps as a top search and rescue professional. He spends his days saving those in need and his nights in the arms of willing women who offer nothing more than a few hours of sexual enjoyment. Just the way he likes it.

When Jake's sister-in-law calls, concerned because she's been unable to reach her best friend, it's up to Jake to find her and bring her home. But Addison isn't lost, and she sure as hell isn't going to be told what to do by an ornery mountain man with whom she'd spent one torrid night after her best friend's wedding. Jake has never left anyone behind--will Addison be his first failed rescue?

Sparks fly from the first moment Trish and Boone meet--Tensions run hot and desire runs hotter when they're trapped together on a remote location with no place to hide. Will sparks ignite, or will a hurricane douse the flames?

A quarrel between students on the tram home from school leads Nicole to intervene, beginning a frightening series of events that threaten Nicole.

"A fresh Christmas story interspersed with joyful, age-old holiday traditions." --Kirkus Review

"A beautiful and heart warming story that I really enjoyed from the first page. A marvelous thought provoking story for young and 'old' readers" --Beck Valley Books

"This is a rare story that brings us back to the simplicity of other times. The story is of two sisters in the Austrian Alps one of whom acquires a magical candy cane. For her the magic is not quite what she expected." --Amazon Review

Stephen V. Masse
Stephen V. Masse was born in Boston. He wrote his first practice novel at age 13, handwritten into a composition book. His children s books are Shadow Stealer (Dillon Press, 1988) and Short Circus (Good Harbor Press, 2010) and The Taste of Snow (Good Harbor Press, 2011) The Taste of Snow was awarded Honorable Mention in the 2011 New England Book Festival for best books of the holiday season, as well as Honorable Mention in the 2012 New York Book Festival. In addition, Masse wrote A Jolly Good Fellow, winner of the Silver Medal in the 2008 Independent Publisher Book Awards, as well as Honorable Mention in the 2008 New England Book Festival for best books of the holiday season.


Stephen says...
The best thing about Christmas for him is... the time we take to make togetherness happen -- the magic that comes from people sharing special moments or memories around a table, around a fire, making crafts or decorating, singing, playing music, telling stories. The anticipation, the aroma of real pine, the little bit of extra patience we offer or receive from others.Never being one single thing, but a whole season of things which when folded all together makes the celebration joyous and memorable.

This year is special because... it will mark the 5th year anniversary of the publication of The Taste of Snow. The book has been very well received by middle readers and their parents, and has won many awards, among them Honorable Mention in the 2015 Holiday Book Festival and Honorable Mention in the 2016 Readers' Favorite Book Awards.
