Carter Hill had to choose between the man she loved, ranching lie or following her dreams, her PhD and her job where she knew she could make a difference. She could only hope that love would find her again now that her brothers have all married, but until then, she would work hard as a water rights consultant, fighting alongside the lawyers who advocate for those taken advantage of.

Logan Cartez, too serious, an all-business and no play attorney is on a mission to ensure that ranchers like his

Landing the Lawman is the fifth book in the Hills of Texas Series by Kadie Scott. Even though this is the fifth book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. It is another great contemporary romance- with a little drama, lots of chemistry, emotion, steam, tension, angst, banter- and a friends to lovers element.
We’ve met the Hills in the previous books, and this is Carter’s story. This is one of my favourites of the series and I loved following Carter and Logan and seeing how things

Goodness me. There is so much mind changing in this book that you might get whiplash. And you know what? I don't care. The back and forth between these two is hugely enjoyable and really, just pulled me further into the story.

I loved the pull these two had. The tension. The restraint. The depth of their connection. All of that came together in a beautiful cocktail to make a very tasty love story.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Received an Advance Reader Copy in exchange for a fair review
An enjoyable read featuring a seemingly aloof hero, who is indeed a very lonely and passionate man and a strong, determined heroine
The attraction and chemistry between Logan and Carter in “Landing the Lawman”, by Kadie Scott (Tule Publishing), is very palpable; co-workers and both intelligent people, they have a solid history and friendship before the romance happens.
Logan is a fascinating hero, hiding a past full of hurt, but not

Sometimes what you are looking for is right in front of you....

Carter Hill was once engaged to a man she had known all of her life. The problem was that he didn't see the real her nor was he willing to open his eyes and see her. So she did the smart thing and broke it off. She had worked hard to earn not only a BS in Engineering but her Masters and a PhD in Hydraulics. And while she loved living in Austin being the best in her field, she still feels like something is missing. But she has her

I loved reading the book Landing the Lawman (Hills of Texas Book 5) by Kadie Scott. It is a western romance book that pulled me in from the beginning and I found myself not able to put it down. I loved reading about the character of Carter Hill and Logan Cartez. Carter is a strong, intelligent, and independent woman. She does, however, feel the loneliness seeing her brothers who are happily married. Logan is a man who doesn’

This is not what I expected for Carters Story. This is better! I love the humor and attitude she has. I don’t think I could love this family any more than I do. They make me laugh, cry and just smile a lot when I’m reading.

Now I have many favorite parts of this book but DAYUM!....Who knew Lawyer talk could be so HOT! Logan knows just how and when to use those words! I don’t think I could be in a courtroom with him after that and not be *uncomfortable* (if you know what I mean)

I loved Carter and Logan’s friends to lovers story in Landing the Lawman by Kadie Scott, book five in The Hills of Texas series. Carter chose her career over a perfect life and relationship, a job as a water rights consultant that she’s wanted since a teen. With all of her brothers happily married and starting families she’s lonely and has an emptiness she needs to fill. The only other man in her life is Logan Carter, a lawyer married to his job, working to make sure what destroyed his family ...more

Landing the Lawman by Kadie Scott is a warm and timely story about the only Hill sibling that is female. A sweet hot romance from the get-go, it also pointed out early in the story the importance of available clean water, which is a global concern. The work that the Carter Hill does is important, she is not a damsel in distress sort of heroine. Logan Cortez is more the one who needs saving with his too serious approach to all of life.
This friendship to love story works on so many levels. Carter

Landing the Lawman is the fifth book in the Hills of Texas series from Kadie Scott. If you’d like to start here and haven't read the others that should still be possible as there is enough background info that carries through all of the novels.

In this one we get the story of the only Hill daughter, Carter, and the handsome lawyer Logan. Carter would like to find the one one day but in the meantime as she recovers from a heartbreak she swears to focus on the career that ignites her passion in

Landing the Lawman by Kadie Scott is the fifth book in the Hills of Texas series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although personally I think all these books are worth reading.
As usual when I picked up this book I found myself reading a sweet and heartwarming story. This book is about the final Hill sibling, Carter, a character that I definitely loved. Her connection with Logan is lovely to read about. They have such a believable chemistry that made the book even better.

This series is an absolute delight! Up until this point we’ve only seen the romances of the Hill family boys, most of whom are sexy as sin alpha cowboys. Well, after four full-length novels featuring the Hill men, we’re finally privy to the one Hill daughter falling in love with a dashing lawyer. It feels like I’ve been waiting for Carter’s story since book one, and I’m thrilled to say it doesn’t disappoint. I might even go so far as to say that Carter and Logan’s romance is my favorite of the ...more

Landing the Lawman (The Hills of Texas Book 5) by Kadie Scott is another enticing story in the series. It is a sweet and funny tale that is sexy and endearing characters that you can’t help but fall in love. Each book has been about all the siblings and has focused on the sons but this story is about the only daughter, Carter. Kadie is a must read author.

Carter is sassy and strong, opinionated and definitely not shy. She knows what she wants and isn’t ashamed to go after it but there is one man

I received this arc in exchange for an honest review. I have now read and loved all 5 books in the series by Kadie Scott. Each book is about a different Hill sibling. This book is about the only daughter, Carter. She is a PhD and works as an expert witness in Austin on water rights cases. She recently ended a long term engagement because she didn’t want to give up her career and move back home to live on a ranch. Carter works a lot with one of the lawyers that specializes in water rights, Logan. ...more

They start off as working together, then they become friends and then they become more. I loved this book and I loved reading their story. As each chapter finished you could see the development from each step of their relationship. You could see them fighting what they both wanted. It was truly a really good book. I ...more
