Editorial Reviews

Review

"Not your typical Christian read. Awesome Read, had me in tears right from the beginning. This is not your typical Christian read, it has prostitution, drunkenness, murder and violence that goes with the old west. Loved this book, good romantic, not preachy, but a tear jerker. Can't wait for book two." --
G Fontaine, Amazon Book Reviewer

"I really am not into reading "Christian" books-romance or otherwise but after being assured it was not like most of the rest I took a chance. I am glad I did. There was a lot of "being a good Christian and all that entails" BUT the character's were definitely not all perfect--far from it!! Even one of the main character's had a time of it reconciling God's will with her own!" mikishope.com/

"This is the best book I have read since A Lasting Impression, A Belmont Novel by TAMERA ALEXANDER. It is also the first book I have read by Heather Blanton and will not be the last." --Pegaleg, Amazon Reviewer

"A Lady in Defiance has certainly become one of my favorite books and Heather Blanton a new favorite author."  --Annie Grace Woods, Amazon Reviewer

"I thoroughly enjoyed this book. This was my first time reading a book by this author and she's now one of my new favorites! I love how she writes. I felt likeI was walking through the dusty streets of this little town and I love how allthe characters were so believable. A wonderful Christian historical romance. Icannot wait until the next book. " --Miranda, Amazon Reviewer

From the Inside Flap

"Oh, I don't mean to make it sound as if I'm angry or to be pitied, Mrs. Miller. I'm truly content." McIntyre placed cards on the table with skilled, easy movements as he talked. "Taking God out of the equation frees a man to find his own destiny, make his own way without worrying about divine whimsy...There." Naomi looked down and saw that he had placed two cards in front of each of them; a ten and an eight stared up at her. He was graced with a king and a five. "The French call this Vingt-Et-Un. We call it Blackjack. The object is to get as close to twenty-one as possible without going over. Whoever is the closest wins. If you win, Mrs. Miller, I will give you that building for your hotel. If you lose," he paused. "If you lose, you will run the hotel for me."

Her face paled. "I can't agree to that."

"You're fifteen hundred miles from the Carolinas and still a thousand miles from California. I'd say your options are limited." While the statement was true, he didn't wish to frame things in such a grim light. "I've got fifteen," he said tapping his cards. "You have eighteen. The odds are in your favor."

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! Hope there will be a sequel.

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 like this kind of historical fiction/Christian fiction.

I recently bought my first e-reader and this is one of the first books that I read on it. I thought is was a very good book. You never quite know what you are going to get with an author that is unfamiliar. but I was pleasantly surprised. I look forward to more by this author!

Rough and rowdy town turns respectable! Lovable heroines bring the Gospel to prostitutes and pimps! Believable real life issues of trust and letting go of bitterness. Can't wait to read more of this author and I hope she has a series to include the other two sisters. Eve though this is targeted for adults some teens can handle the subject matter.

I really enjoyed this book by Heather Blanton. I can't believe it's her first! A very professional and seasoned writer. I loved the descriptions of the town of Defiance and it's very 'interesting' citizens. The book had a lot of inspirational Christian content, with the theme of forgiveness being central to the story. I liked that the characters weren't perfect. Each of them had their own strengths and weaknesses. If you like Francine Rivers and Tamera Alexander, then you'll enjoy this book immensely. I look forward to reading more books in the series (hopefully there will be more).

This was areally good story. Great characters. I don't read Harlequin because they go so far into the fleshy details.
It is only my preference. I wouldn't suggest this book because parts were rated R with nothing left to the imagination. It would have been Great if it were not for those parts. Some young Christians have never been exposed to situations like the Flowers did.

My sister lent me this book, "Lady in Defiance," from her kindle to mine. I couldn't put it down! The writing was superb, the bantering was heartwarming, the storyline was well thought out, and our Lord was glorified! I would love a sequel. Heather Blanton has it all together!

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 believeable 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. Life is full of choices and we are given a "free will" to make choices but as indicated throughout the story we are never left alone though the choice we've made was not a good one. This is brought out in the story with perfection. The author, Heather Blanton, created believeable and heart-warming characters of whom live long with you after you have finished. She has a way, although characters are fictional, to draw you into their lives; experiencing their struggles and joys, cheering them on in keeping with their faith and anticipating the outcome of their walk in faith.
