Against The Sun - Kat Martin

Book Blurb:
She's got the face of an angel and the body of… well, isn't that what he'd expect from an exotic dancer? But there's something about this girl that Johnnie Riggs can't shake. The former army ranger is hot on the trail of an elusive drug lord—and suddenly very hot under the collar, as well.

Amy's got her own agenda to pursue: her sister is missing and Amy seems to be the only one who cares. She'll enlist Johnnie's help and do her best to ignore her growing attraction to finally get some answers. But when the two trails begin to converge and reveal something even more sinister than they imagined, their mutual desire is the least of their problems. They'll bring the truth to light…or die trying.

In My Own Words:
While leaving the comforts of her home and her job teaching kindergartners behind wasn't easy for Amy, she knew she would do what ever possible to find out what happened to her sister.  She heads for the bright lights and big city, takes over her sister's last job as a stripper and starts working angles to see if she can dig up any leads.  When the trail is more than ice cold, Amy has no choice but to suck in her pride and ask for his help.

Johnnie Riggs' knows that Amy isn't what she appears, but what the hell does he care, right?  When Amy approaches Johnnie about helping her find her sister, he just can't say no.  As soon as Johnnie starts poking around, things seem to get weirder and weirder.  When the trail suddenly looks like it is leading them to a notorious drug lord, Johnnie is no long only afraid for only the sister, he is also worried for Amy.

Notable Quote:
And he'd have to let her go.  He was who he was and she was who she was.  A not-so-ex-Army Ranger and a kindergarten teacher.

Just another of God's little jokes.

I think this is my favorite so far of the Raines of Wind Canyon series.  Johnnie is a major hottie and a protective streak that can make you swoon.  Amy is determined and no slouch, has a get it done attitude and takes no crap from anyone.  Coming together they are almost combustable, and sparks to fly.  Amy isn't to fond of taking orders and Johnnie isn't to fond of orders not being followed, but it works.  This series seems to get better and better with each book.
