A Promise in Defiance is book three in the Romance in the Rockies series written by Heather Blanton. For this story we continue where the second one leaves off. Charles and Naomi have very recently married and the 10 year old half breed son of Charles has been dropped off at their place. Two Spears struggles with living with them and Charles leaves Naomi to take care of Two Spears. One day Two Spears takes off and ends up in town struggling with 2 men. Just as Logan Tillane comes back to town Logan was an outlaw until he accepted the Lord, now he is back in Defiance as their pastor.
A new lady has arrived in town, Delilah has opened up the Crystal Chandelier as a bar and brothel. She also sells virgins and has shows. Delilah is well know for her businesses and employs men to carry out her orders.
I enjoyed reading this series. The series does have to be read in order to get the most from it. This is a historical series with romance sewn into the stories The first book brought Charles and Naomi together, the second brought the older sister Rebecca and Ian together and in this book we get to seethe younger sister Hannah and Billy rekindle their relationship. The story line through out the series is based on bars and brothels and the wildness of the time and area. This may turn some readers off, but the real story of finding redemption is constant through the whole series. I enjoyed the notations the author has at the bottom of a few pages where she used incidents or people in her past in her stories.
I received a copy of this book from Book Club Network for an honest review.
