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. The story, based on true events, is 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:

This was a most enjoyable read. This was my first reading from this author and was not disappointed. The author, in my opinion, created very loving and believable characters. With each turning page, you were eager to find out more about them and what choices they would make and if they would stand firm.


In `A Lady in Defiance’, Heather Blanton has composed an incredibly interesting and compelling story. It is gritty, bold, and at times breathtakingly dramatic! Engrossing from the onset to the finish, this Historical Romance set in a Colorado mining town, captures you within its pages with a firm hold and doesn’t let go.


I really enjoyed reading a good clean romance novel with good Christian morals. Set in an interesting time and era. Thank you for offering us a good read.


A Lady in Defiance has certainly become one of my favorite books and Heather Blanton a new favorite author. A little different for a Christian novel but thought the plot and storyline was really engaging and had me hooked to see how it would all end.


I really enjoyed this book, the plot was laid out nicely and the development of characters were real. I loved that these ladies desired to see people the way God does. Heather Blanton does an amazing job at allowing her characters to deal with emotions such as sorrow, hurt, anger, love, and pity. It’s a great book and I hope you read it.

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. The boys really spend a lot of time outdoors because their mother spends a lot of time listening to 80’s music, but they love her anyway.

Thank you for considering today’s Book Of The Day – Heather Blanton and ENT appreciate it.
