Blame It On Texas by Tori Scott

Lone Star Cowboys #1
Logan has to go back to his family's ranch because his father had a stroke. His sister, Carol, is begging. He hated the ranch and left as soon as he could. He rented his apartment out for the summer.
Megan rented Logan's apartment. She's a college friend of Carol's. The day she moves in Katie, Logan's 12 year old daughter, shows up looking for her dad. Megan agrees to take Katie to Logan. Megan is attracted to Logan right away. He is gorgeous. But moody.
Megan has experience caring for invalids and helps with Charlie and Katie. Logan and Megan seem to grow closer but he needs an attitude adjustment and has big problems - one of them being custody of Katie. Lots of things happen. Will Logan and Megan be a couple and be happy?

I liked this story. The characters were well written. Logan was a jerk but he had things to get over and needed to grow up.

From the author:
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. He can't wait to get back to Dallas.

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 has a dream of a few acres, a few champion Blue Heelers, and a small-town veterinary practice. The only thing standing 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.
