Best one yet! Just when Charles thinks his new life as a reformed man is going well, the past comes blazing back. Will he succumb to his old ways to protect his town -- and his family? Or will he lean into his reformed life and trust God will provide?
Blanton writes gritty, action-packed Western inspirational fiction (that's a mouthful!). Gritty, because that's the way life is - things aren't always wrapped up neatly, just like in real life. Action-packed, because the reader is pulled into the s

I LOVED this book!!! I've been waiting for this book!! I couldn't wait to see what would happen to Charles, Naomi, Two Spears, Hannah, Billy, and Little Billy!! I had to know if Hannah and Billy would marry, or if she'd leave him for nursing school. I had to find out if Emilio and Mollie got together. Now, I know!!! I found out all about characters from the previous books, met some new ones, and found out more about other existing characters. This was a great read!! Heather handled a delicate to ...more

WOW!! Romances and rivalries were simmering in Defiance… and this story has plenty of each! Rivalry, secrets, lies, family and revenge at the bottom of most of it. These characters show all their good sides and certainly try to hide their bad sides to make this a... what is coming up next! Loved it, couldn't put it down and I certainly hope there is another book soon!
I was gifted a copy, no review was required. My opinion and review is voluntary.

I loved the first two in the series, but there was way too many characters and side stories that took away from the main plot. I love the story of Naomi and Charles and there is almost no interaction between them. I started skimming some of the side stories which seem like the same story over and over but just with different characters. It was really hard to connect with any character or see any relationships develop. The plot itself was just too much. It felt way over done.

The town full of corruption and the people who try desperately to save it. A female Dr afraid to admit her profession and the sisters who have hearts set on peace entertained and share the adventures that life tosses at them. Full of emotion and love and most importantly faith.

As always I love this series and it was awesome. Lots of action in this story. Does Charles turn against God or does he allow God to work in his life. Hope is introduced in this book as a highly skilled”nurse” but what secret is she keeping.?

A Destiny in Defiance is an action-packed Western romance by Heather Blanton. Although one could read this book as a stand-alone, reading the previous books in the Romance in the Rockies series will significantly enhance the reading experience. So much happens in this book--as one character says Trouble, 'never stops coming in this town.' Blanton knows how to keep the interest high making the reader wonder how in the world will the various situations be resolved. Characters are portrayed with re ...more

“Heather Blanton is blessed with a natural storytelling ability, an ‘old soul’ wisdom, and 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.”
