The Spy Wore Spurs - Dana Marton (HI #1364 - July 2012)

Series: SDDU 

Top secret commando soldier Ryder McKay is shot and left for dead in South Texas. But when he comes to in a bedroom on Grace Cordero's remote ranch, he realizes the beautiful former army medic did more than save his life. She risked her own. Not that he can tell her the whole truth about his mission. Ryder is sure dangerous thugs are using Grace's vast property to smuggle drugs, weapons-and people-across the border. But to prove it without blowing his cover, he has to let her ride shotgun on the investigation. And keeping his heart guarded against sexy, off-limits Grace will be the hardest part of all. 

Very good book.  It started out with a bang when Ryder was shot and Grace came to his rescue.  When she also came to the aid of a Mexican woman searching for her children, it put her right in the middle of Ryder's investigation.   When she found out that these things were happening on her land, she insisted on being involved.  I liked the interaction between Grace and Ryder.  He was ready to settle down and had a definite idea of what he was looking for - someone who could work along side of him, but was also able to be a good wife and mother.  He was attracted to Grace, but knew that her issues would prevent her from working with him.  He did find that he liked being with her and also felt very protective when she got into dangerous situations.  Grace had been an army medic and came home with some PTSD issues. I really liked the way that she overcame them when she needed to.  When she got involved with the investigation on her land, she had no intention of just sitting in the background.  She was very good at following leads, not so good at letting Ryder dictate her actions.  I really enjoyed the way that she would stand up for herself.  The conclusion of this one was definitely edge of the seat reading.  I'm looking forward to more from this series so I can find out who the head bad guy is.
