Claiming Mariah by Pam Hillman



Pam Hillman is our guest today. She was born and raised on a dairy farm in Mississippi and spent her teenage years perched on the seat of a tractor raking hay. In those days, her daddy couldn’t afford two cab tractors with air conditioning and a radio, so Pam drove the Allis Chalmers 110. Even when her daddy asked her if she wanted to bale hay, she told him she didn’t mind raking. Raking hay doesn’t take much thought so Pam spent her time working on her tan and making up stories in her head. Now, that’s the kind of life every girl should dream of! Claiming Mariah is her second novel. Pam Hillman.

If we get five or more comments on this blog post I will pick a winner using Random.org and Pam will give the winner an eBook of Claiming Mariah .


About Claiming Mariah:

In light of her father’s death, Mariah Malone sends a letter that will forever alter the lives of her family. When Slade Donovan, strong willed and eager for vengeance, shows up on her front porch, Mariah is not ready to hear his truths: her father’s farm, the only home she’s ever known, was bought with stolen gold. With Slade ready to collect his father’s rightful claim and force Mariah and her family out on the streets, Mariah must turn to God for guidance. Though Mr. Fredrick Cooper, a local landowner, promises to answer her financial woes if she agrees to be his bride, Mariah finds herself drawn instead to the angry young man demanding her home.

With the ranch now under Slade’s careful eye, he will unearth more than he ever imagined as a devious plot of thievery, betrayal and murder threatens more than the well-being of the ranch, endangering the lives of those who hold it dear. With days dwindling until the rest of the Donovan clan arrive to the Lazy M ranch, Mariah and Slade must rise above the resentment of their fathers and see their true feelings before greed alters their futures forever.

  8. From reading this today, I found I have two things in common with Pam Hillman: our first names and growing up on a dairy farm (but in Kansas for me). Claiming Mariah sounds like a book I'd really enjoy reading. Thanks for the chance to win.

    2. Lisa, I'm with Jo. WHOO-HOO! Go glad you came by. Love us some cowboys.

      My personal cowboy is a tall, broad-shouldered man. Quiet, doesn't say much, but rock-solid in his convictions and his beliefs.

      A nice counterpoint to my constant state of undecidedness! lol
