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

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.

"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!
