Book Description

Book One in the Lone Star Cowboys series

Logan Tanner shook the red dust of West Texas off his boots at the age of eighteen and hasn't looked back. When his father has a stroke, Logan is temporarily forced to return home and take over the family ranch. He still feels responsible for his mother's death when he was twelve, and has never gotten over the guilt. Now he's faced with having to protect his twelve year old daughter Katie and his sister and her friend Megan Flynn. It's nearly more than one man can handle.

Megan Flynn immediately falls in love with Morris Springs, Texas, population 976, when she delivers Logan's runaway daughter to his doorstep. Raised as a city girl, Megan dreams of owning a few acres, raising a few champion Australian Cattle Dogs, and starting a small-town veterinary practice. The only thing between her and her dream is one stubborn, reluctant cowboy with an overprotective streak as wide as the West Texas prairie. But her stubborn streak is a match for his any day. And she's determined to prove it.

Blame it on Texas is a story of the power of love to overcome any adversity, the strength of family and friendship, and the joy that comes with being part of something bigger than yourself.

Book Two, Blue Moon over Texas, is now available.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Read - I Loved It January 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Blame it on Texas by Tori Scott is a delightful and enjoyable story.

Logan's father has suffered a stroke, so Logan returns home to tend to his dad, after being gone since he was 18 years old. Logan is a single parent of Katie who recently ran away from home. Katie runs into Megan, who brings her back to her dad and immediately, the attraction between Megan and Logan materializes.

This is a wonderful, warm and loving book, with lots of romance and sex. The storyline is captivating and a real page-turner. I highly recommend this book.

4.0 out of 5 stars ;o) December 1, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Logan has left home since he was eighteen and hasn't return since. Now that his father has suffered a stroke, he has returned home to help care for him. While back home, he is worried about his daughter Katie. Megan stumbles upon Katie, who has run away from home. When she returns Katie to her father, she falls in love with Logan and his family.


This was a mellow and sad at times story. I think the author did a great job building a story around this Texas family. Though the story is about Megan and Logan's growing relationship throughout the story, it is also about Katie and the family. Katie is the daughter of Logan. Katie definitely was a child that was very determined, and had her issues dealing with her parents. Logan has issues, but I think everything for him came full circle towards the end, which includes Megan.

Though I mentioned sad moments, this shouldn't be discouraging, as everything brought the story together that gave me different stages of emotions that I went through.

Storyline: GOOD
Enjoyment: GOOD

5.0 out of 5 stars Moved to my fave book from this author!!! November 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I loved this book it was wholesome yet steamy, the characters were engaging and a total page turner straight to the end! I felt emotionally invested in this story from the beginnning and was sent on an emotional roller coaster throughout. This author managed to write about serious life and relationship issues just as seamlessly as steamy sex scenes that raise your body temp a coupla degrees ;) I have read everything I can get my hands on by this author and have never been disappointed so I would gladly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good solid read! Get it, read it, enjoy as much as I did!

Came across this book and got it because it was free. Glad I did! It was an easy read and I found that I couldn't put my Kindle down. It has opened my eyes to a genre of books that I don't typically read. I look forward to reading more by Tori Scott!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blame it on Texas...what's to blame?? January 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I really have been enjoying each book from the Lone Star Cowboys series by Tori Scott. "Blame it on Texas" is a very good story with characters you will quickly become "friends" with and want to know more about. Sometimes in life's busy times it is nice to know you can pick up a book and get "lost" in the story for a while. This book was just that for me! I eagerly look forward to another book in this series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Blame it on Texas June 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A fun, sweet and endearing read that really gives you the feelings of hometown, true love, family and friendship.

Logan is in the only place he does not want to be. His hometown. Now surrounded by women and his sick father he's even more regretful of his decision to go back there. Even briefly. All he wants to do is get out of there, work, and take care of his daughter. But fate has other plans for him.

Megan wants all that Logan has. The hometown, the familiarity, friends, fresh country air and just a great place to call home. She's never experienced any of it before and is determined to make her dreams come true.

Together Logan and Megan are two halves of a whole. If only they realize it and let fate be their guide they will both live the happiest lives possible.

More About the Author

Tori Scott is a former Golden Heart finalist, a two-time Rone Award nominee, a finalist in the International Digital Awards, and a semi-finalist in the Best Indie Books of 2012. She lists several publications among her accomplishments, including a featured Christmas story--The Christmas Wish--in Woman's World magazine.

Tori loves reading, swimming, photography, traveling, and especially writing. When she can talk him into it, she loves riding on the back of her husband's Harley. She's an animal lover, and though she's now down to one dog, at one point she owned cows, chickens, goats, rabbits, ducks, four dogs, and a mule named Doc. You'll likely find animals of one kind or another in her books.

Tori was born in West Texas,and she loves to use it as a setting for her cowboy books because the people who were born and raised there have a code of ethics that makes for great heroes. It takes a tough man or woman to deal with the tornadoes, dust storms, hail, blizzards, rattlesnakes, and drought that are so common in the Panhandle. But they handle whatever comes their way and become stronger for it.

Tori's husband is the inspiration for many of her heroes. He's a country boy who can build a house, ride a Harley, handle a rifle in defense of his family, and wade into a pack of fighting dogs to save her precious Blue Heeler. What more could you ask for?

Check out Tori's full list of novels and novellas, and be sure to watch for her next release, Book Six in the Lone Star Cowboys Series.
