HIS TOWN. HER GOD. LET THE BATTLE BEGIN.
Charles McIntyre owns everything and everyone in the lawless, godless mining town of Defiance. When three good, Christian sisters from his beloved South show up stranded, alone, and offering to open a “nice” hotel, he is intrigued enough to let them stay…especially since he sees feisty middle sister Naomi as a possible conquest. But Naomi, angry with God for widowing her, wants no part of Defiance or the saloon-owning, prostitute-keeping Mr. McIntyre. It would seem however, that God has gone to elaborate lengths to bring them together. The question is, “Why?” Does God really have a plan for each and every life?
Written with gritty, but not gratuitous, realism uncharacteristic of historical Christian fiction, A Lady in Defiance gives a nod to both Pride and Prejudice and Redeeming Love. Based on true events, it is also an ensemble piece that deftly weaves together the relationships of the three sisters and the rowdy residents of Defiance.
Here’s what the reviewers have to say:
I truly enjoyed this gem of a book. The characters were vivid and well-written. Very descriptive; you could see, taste and touch the gritty town of Defiance and it’s less-than-savory citizenry. The friendship between the sisters was real and honest. Most enjoyable, though, was the saucy relationship between Naomi and Charles. I was up half the night reading!
I truly enjoyed A Lady in Defiance. I felt that I had stepped back in time with the characters. It is an easy read and I did not want to put it down. This is my first read from this author and I look forward to any thing else that she may publish.
I loved this book and will share with all my friends and family. The Christian part of the book was real…Not preachy just a way of life….learning from everything that comes your way…so believable. Felt like I was right there with them
This is a wonderful story of courage and faith. Rich characters, interesting plot, spiritual warfare, this book has it all. Worth every penny. You get more than your moneys worth with this story.
I believe the love of Jesus could not have been expressed more explicitly and truthfully than Heather Blanton’s delightful tale of love, acceptance and forgiveness. Thank you Ms. Blanton and may you write more beautiful, heartfelt stories for many years to come.

About The Author
Heather started writing when she was five; her first tale was a ghost story that her mom typed up for her on a Brother typewriter. Over the years, she has worked as a journalist for newspapers, magazines, and blogs. She has also spent decades in the corporate communications field, marketing everything from software to motorcycles. (Did she really just say “decades”?)
A Lady in Defiance, loosely based on true events, is set in the majestic San Juan Mountains of Colorado, the most beautiful place in the world. While a romance, it is also an “ensemble” piece that weaves together the relationships of the three sisters and the rowdy residents of Defiance. Heather has two sisters whom she loves dearly. One is still with us, the other crossed over to be with Lord in 1999 and it is she who inspired the character of Hannah.
Heather grew up on a steady diet of Bonanza, Gunsmoke, and John Wayne Westerns. Her most fond memories are of sitting next to her dad, munching on popcorn, and watching Lucas McCain unload that Winchester! She loves exploring out West and would happily spend all her time researching and exploring ghost towns till the cows come home.
Heather lives with her husband and two adventurous boys on a farm outside Raleigh, NC. They enjoy riding practically anything with four legs or two wheels, and being outdoors.
Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Heather Blanton and ENT appreciate it.
