A Lady in Defiance by Heather Blanton

Click here to start reading a free sample of A Lady in Defiance right now!

A man who wants to rule in Hell. A woman who wants to find her faith again…

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.


Right now A Lady in Defiance, Hearts in Defiance, and A Promise in Defiance are all available on Kindle Unlimited for FREE. Load up your readers for summer now!!!

a promise in defiance by heather blanton

CHOICES HAVE CONSEQUENCES … EVEN FOR THE REDEEMED.

Logan Tillane carries a Bible in his hand, wears a gun on his hip, and fights for lost souls any way he can. Newly arrived in Defiance, though, he has trouble telling saints from sinners. The challenge only worsens when infamous madam Delilah Goodnight steps off the stage. She and the new preacher have opposite plans for the town. One wants to save it, one wants to lead it straight to hell.

Charles McIntyre has a new wife … and a ten-year-old half-breed son dropped on his doorstep. In a town as mean as Defiance, can he dare to love them both? If he tries, will the price be too high, even for him?

All Hannah wants is to marry the man of her dreams, the father of her child … and continue working as Doc Cook’s nurse. Can she have the best of both worlds, or will she have to choose one … and lose the other?

They can all count on one thing: whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap … and the harvest is at hand in the wild, wild West.

The sequel to the bestsellers A Lady in Defiance and Hearts in Defiance!

You can read an excerpt from A Promise in Defiance here.

Right now A Lady in Defiance and Hearts in Defiance are both available on Kindle Unlimited for FREE. Load up your readers for summer now!!! You can order A Promise in Defiance here.


Cook’s Secret Microwave Grill

The Cook’s Secret Microwave Grill is a special grilling plate that becomes super-hot (up to 600 degrees) so your food is getting grilled just like it would on a gas or charcoal grill.  You’ll even see real grill marks!

The grilling dome uses the power of microwaves to create infrared convection heating. The meat cooks on the inside and sears on the outside. The dome locks in moisture for the juiciest meats you’ve ever tasted!

Never before have you been able to grill meats perfectly in the microwave!

portable search light

Portable Search Light

Don’t find yourself in the dark during an emergency. Illuminate shadows with a few minutes cranking of the handle. It’s perfect for the home, car, boat or campground and features versatile search light and lantern settings. A comfortable, easy-grip handle and hanging hook make it a cinch to carry and hang.

• Use at home, in the car or boat, or while camping
• One minute of cranking yields 30 minutes of light
• No power source needed
• Use as a tabletop or hanging lantern
• Use as a search light
• Encased in plastic and rubber material for reliable use, even in inclement weather
• Lightweight and easy to carry

The Review

I don’t know the mechanics of exactly how the Cook’s Secret Microwave Grill works, I just know it does!

I was always told NOT to put metal in the microwave and have to admit I was slightly nervous about using the grill because of the metal lid. No worries, I am happy to report, it went in no problem. The Microwave Grill is the perfect size to cook for two people. You can fit four boneless skinless porkchops inside. I made them for my son and I and we both enjoyed their juiciness and yes, there were grill marks on them.

This is definitely a unique, easy way to “grill” without the hassle and cost of maintaining an official grill. There are specific instructions included that come with this product that need to be read and followed beforehand and during for best results. With a little practice, you can be a microwaving grill wizard too!

My husband absolutely LOVES the Portable Search Light. He seems to have taken it over and is NOT willing to return it!

I was so impressed with this light and its ease of use. No disposable batteries are needed and when you need more light you crank the handle to recharge it. Great for the environment and always ready when it’s needed. My husband loves that it can be used as a lantern for when he is walking around outside in the dark to a searchlight for when he’s working in the barn. Perfect for any survivalist and nature lover too. Love it!

I was given these products in exchange for an honest review. The opinions expressed here are my own.

The Giveaway

Thank you so much to Viatek Products, and as a bonus, they have offered to giveaway a Portable Search Light to one lucky winner and a Cook’s Secret Microwave Grill to a second lucky winner. Due to shipping costs, the winner must have a US address.

The Review

I’m crazy about this case! It’s easy to use, my phone works through the plastic screen protector EASILY, the locks are watertight and easy to open/close. I was given one in exchange for a review and I kinda thought, “Eh, it’s probably OK.” I have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the construction, durability, and ease of use.

the talking shirtThe Talking Shirt was founded in 2013 after a very unsuccessful trip to the local big box store.  We saw the need for tees with positive, uplifting messages.  As our customer base rapidly grows, we have learned that we aren’t the only ones out there that crave appropriate apparel for our little ones and for ourselves.

The Talking Shirt is a USA based company.  We are family owned and operated with a small staff that helps with large orders.  Brandon is “Mr. Talking Shirt” and the head designer.  His “real job” is the pastor of Mokena Baptist Church, located just up the road from our shop.  Rachel is “Mrs. Talking Shirt” and the person in charge of day to day operations.  Our inspiration comes from our two beautiful little girls, Chloe and Avery.  They are truly the lights of our lives!

When you shop with us, you are truly “shopping small”.  All of our tees are designed by us and printed by us in the US.  We are based in Mokena IL.  Our production area is located in the back of our beautiful boutique located at 19805 S LaGrange Road in Mokena, Illinois.

We give God the glory for how our business has grown.  It has been a roller coaster ride and more work than we could have ever imagined, but we are so very grateful for the opportunity we have to spread love, positivity, faith, and kindness in a unique way.

The Review

I LOVE my shirt! It’s made well, is comfortable, and has a great message (“Faith not Fear”). The packaging was impressive, too. Almost boutiquish; a small thing but it shows that a company cares. I will be ordering more shirts from them! I was given a shirt in exchange for a review and am really tickled with the product! Not just empty words.

The shirts are for kids and adults and this company will work with you to get you exactly what you want. I highly recommend them!
