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 fa

Landing the Lawman
By Kadie Scott
5 stars

I loved this book! I have been fortunate to read a few books by this author so I knew that Landing the Lawman was going to be a good read and as expected I wasn’t disappointed! It was a fantastic western romance that had me turning the pages to find out just what was going to happen next. I loved Carter and Logan – she was a fantastic female lead, independent but also with a small side to her that did want a man to sweep her off her feet and romance her! En

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.

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 over

Although this is the 5th book in the series it can still be read as a standalone.  However with any series like this I always recommend reading the series in order because it's lovely to see characters from previous books pop up as supporting characters, as in this one.


As with all the Katie Scott books I've read this is well written with wonderfully warm, engaging characters and great storylines.  Carter and Logan are great lead characters who face many obstacles on their way to true love, and i

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 fri

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.

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 ra ...more

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)

The Texas Hill series can be read in any order, but as the siblings all get married it makes sense to read them the way the author planned.

Carter is the only daughter in the Hill household. Watching her brothers find love, Carter doesn’t regret her decision to leave family and love behind to pursue her dream job. But it’s a lonely life, has she left it to late? Well maybe not, yummy Logan hits all those buttons. An affair might be just the thing they both need.....

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 (Hills of Texas #5) by Kadie Scott. I LOVED this book. Its the 5th book in the series but can be read as a standalone. Its the story of Carter Hill who chose to walk away from a good relationship because she wanted a career outside of the home. If she had married and stayed home she would be working on the ranch and being a wife and mom, she wanted that but she also wanted more. She wanted to be a Water Rights Consultant for a long time and she had worked hard to become one. N ...more

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 s ...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
