    One thought on “A Promise in Defiance”

    1. A Promise in Defiance is the third of the Romance in the Rockies Series. Based in the town of Defiance. I loved it. It is so sad in places that I just wanted to cry. Other places in the book made me evaluate my own relationship with God. I wasn't preached to, I was touched. The sisters from the first two books are once again featured and it is nice to know their stories and see what their lives are like after finishing their books. The stories of the people in Defiance are gritty, harsh, and upl [...]

    2. "Greater love hath no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friend."There are plenty of men lying down again in Defiance, Colorado, but sacrificial love has nothing to do with it. Wickedness has blown back into town in the form of Delilah Goodnight and her houses of ill repute have destroyed many a man. This time she has an investor who vows to ruin Charles McIntyre by re-introducing a growing mining town to the worst kinds of debauchery. And it just might work. Logan Tillane can scar [...]

    4. A fantastic finish to an excellent series. This book picked up shortly after where book two ended. Defiance is still struggling with becoming an actual city when a new preacher and a new brothel owner arrive in town. The fireworks start shortly after the story begins and doesn’t stop until the closing pages. This book reminded me our world hasn’t changed that much. We are still dealing prejudices, all types of evil exist in our world. But we are also reminded there is grace and forgiveness t [...]

    9. I really enjoyed this third installment in the Romance in the Rockies series. After reading the first two , I was very anxious to see what would happen next in Defiance. The author has once again given readers a story that flows easily and has many surprises in it. The characters were amazingly well developed. It was nice to be able to revisit some of the characters from the first two books. Is it true that anyone can change? Does God forgive everyone? This book does a great job of examining tho [...]

    11. "A Promise In Defiance," by Heather Blanton is book three in the Romance In The Rockies series.

    12. A Promise In Defiance, Romance In The Rockies: Book Three by Heather BlantonThis book is a historical, Christian Fiction set in the gold rush days. I did not read the first two books in the series, and that was fine, but I know I would have enjoyed this more if I had read the previous two. The characters are well, but not fully developed, in my opinion. I didn't fully connect with any of them. This may have been because I did not read the previous books, I'm not sure. But, they were developed we [...]

    13. Being the last book in the series Romance in the Rockies, A Promise in Defiance was a bittersweet read. I grew to love most of the characters and hate to see them go. I do feel there should have been more interaction between Charles McIntyre and his son Two Spears, but that wasn't the main premise in the story. Again, I was on an emotional roller coaster with this book from mad to sad and happy to frustrated. Only an author as good as Heather Blanton can make that happen. I had a hard time putti [...]

    14. Great continuation of the saga of the town of Defiance. This story is primarily about God's grace.The third book in this series and yet another great addition to it!

    15. While there was a somewhat heart rending nature to the end of the series, this installment did have me thinking about what I would be willing to sacrifice for Christ. And I have to say, due to the nature of the story, it could have easily slipped over the edge into preachy, but the raw honesty of the characters prevented any kind of self-righteousness and left, instead, a sense that these could easily be people just like ones I know, people like I could be, given the right circumstances. A Promi [...]

    16. This is the third book in the Romance in the Rockies series by Heather Blanton. They are the only books I've read by this author, but I do know that Ms. Blanton writes incredible Christian Westerns. These books are well researched, well written, and impossible to put down once you start reading. I read over 100 books per year, and I've never found Christian Westerns like this. The books are gritty and I wouldn't advise them for younger readers. With that being said, living as a Christian in a fa [...]

    17. No one is perfect but anyone can be forgiven even the most degenerate wretch. God's Amazing Grace is powerful and clearly presented in and through His people in the wild but struggling to reform western frontier town of Defiance. The Preacher with a Past that comes back to bite him is an unforgettable character that makes a tremendous impact on many lives in this community even though he "fails" on numerous occasions.

    18. I LOVED this book! Heather always makes me sit on the edge of the seat, biting my fingernails, and this was no exception. I have read all her books, but I think this one may be my favorite. The characters are well-developed, they do things that make sense for their personality, and the message of God's relentless love for us shines through the entire story.

    19. This was good but sad. I almost didn’t read it because I didn’t care for the second book that much but I’m so glad I did. I don’t quite like how it ended so I knocked off a star. I feel like it left me hanging. I would love to see another book I felt there’s more left to be told.

    20. WonderfulWhat a wonderful and amazing book and series, full of misfortune and adventure, love and loss, will make you laugh and cry.

    23. "A Promise In Defiance," by author Heather Blanton is Book Three in her "Romance In The Rockies" series. This 308 page paperback is a gritty, Christian novel portraying life in the West as it was. Since this is book three I would recommend reading the other two first, but this is perfectly fine as a stand alone.The time period is the 1800's and the setting is a western town called Defiance.

    27. Having read the first two books in this series, I felt as if I already knew the main characters quite well and was not disappointed to see them mature in this story. I appreciated how Mrs. Blanton developed them with all of their weaknesses and imperfections. It was as if she were journaling about real people that had lived in the Old West and faced the dangers and trials of that era.This story focused on the fact that choices – both large and small - have consequences even when the sinner has [...]

    28. Wow! What a gritty, realistic historical fiction novel set in the Rockies in the late 1800’s. This is the third in the series and piggybacks on the previous two so I recommend reading them first but I just loved this book!On the cover it says, Choices have consequences…even for the redeemed. And indeed, the author showcases some of those choices – and consequences. I really loved how she also showed that all people have past history – some good, some bad – which influences their respon [...]
