Product Description

About the Author

I live in the beautiful mountains of Lake County, California. I have always loved hiking, camping, rafting and being outdoors. I’ve also been involved in the martial arts for years—I hold a third degree black belt, instruct in a Korean karate system, and have taught self-defense. I am happily married to a romantic man who often inspires me with his thoughtfulness. We have a yours, mine, and ours family, claiming eleven children as our own. I have always written books, forcing my ten sisters to read every word, and now my daughters read and help me edit my manuscripts. It is fun to take all the research I have done on wild animals, raptors, vampires, weather, and volcanoes and put it together with romance.

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Make no mistake, there is the usual GhostWalker ongoing battle with the sociopathic evil genius, Whitney, and multiple bloody, cruel and violent deaths in a variety of scenic locations but at heart this book is a love story. The repetitive self doubt of the heroine, Rose, and the desperate love of the hero, Kane, are somewhat repetitive, but believable and both Rose and Kane are, at heart, decent, courageous and deserve each other. As well, this book contains the most complete and compelling account of the delivery of a baby I have ever read. Feehan forgoes the standard cliche of the screaming mother,the panic and guilt striken father, with the happy fadeout afterwards. In fact, when crunch time happens, both do exactly what is necessary without panic or comic relief and the passage is a graphic instruction for the home delivery of a baby.
I have enjoyed all the GhostWalker books and very much liked this one.

I was eagerly awaiting the release of Ruthless Game and glad to say, the anticipation was worth the wait! Great continuation of the Ghostwalkers series...I love that we're getting to meet other Ghostwalkers from the various teams. I love them all and it'll be great to see them paired up. Can't wait for the next installment :)

Warming up to the new team Dec 28 2010
By Jen (Red Hot Books) - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Ruthless Game" is the 9th book in Christine Feehan's Ghostwalker series. This story features Kane, a member of the 3rd Ghostwalker unit, introduced in "Street Game (Ghostwalkers, No 8)." If you're not up to speed on the previous books: Ghostwalkers are soldiers, who volunteered for psychic enhancements. But they all got more than they bargained for when Dr Whitney (the mastermind behind the project) also altered their genes. To make matters more complicated, Whitney has started breeding programs, where he pairs his Ghostwalkers with enhanced women, in the hopes of creating super-babies.

Kane was a soldier at one of Whitney's breeding facilities and it was there he met Rose. In "Deadly Game (GhostWalkers, Book 5)," we learned that Kane had gotten Rose pregnant and helped her escape. In that book, the men involved with the breeding program were portrayed as nothing short of monstrous rapists, so I was curious to see how Kane would be redeemed. Well, it seems Rose chose him to be her partner. She had seen him at the compound and felt attracted to him; sensed his integrity, and asked Whitney to pair him with her. Because Kane didn't want her to have to be with one of the other men, who were hardly a step above rutting beasts, he agreed to the pairing. And they had one night together before she escaped.


Eight months later, our couple is brought together when Kane is on a rescue mission in Mexico. Rose has tipped off the government about some hostages and he senses her nearby when he gets on the scene. After the Ghostwalker team saves the hostages, Kane goes on the run with Rose and hides out with her until she has the baby. The hideout is under surveillance by Whitney's men and they are quickly on the run again. It doesn't take long before they are back in the fold with Kane's team. But Kane is injured during their escape --and Rose saves his life with her secret healing ability.

They all make it back to San Francisco, but Whitney's men and members of a Mexican cartel are still on the hunt for Rose. Kane needs to ensure her safety and help her learn to trust the team that is essentially his family.

I liked this book. But it was different from the previous ones in the series. Primarily because our couple didn't have sex until about 200 pages into the book. (Most of these books have frequent and hot sex scenes.) And the scenes we do have here, just don't have the same spark that the other books had. (My guess is that the pregnancy/post-delivery issues are to blame. I could live without hearing about Rose's breast milk when they're getting hot and heavy.) That aside, the actual love story was nice. Kane's love and devotion to Rose and the baby are tangible. And it is nice to see her finally have someone in her life she can trust.

I missed our old Ghostwalker friends, especially the SEAL team, so it was nice to get a small glimpse of them and their families before the story's end. I am starting to like our new unit... at least more than I did in the last book. I hope we can find away to bring them more into the fold with our old familiar faces in the coming books. 4 stars.

Getting warmer... Dec 30 2010
By Jessie Potts - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I gave this book 3 stars because it was sooooo much better than the last book, but I still miss our old ghost walker team a lot and this book is scarily similar to one of Lora Leigh's books. In this book the hero and heroine knew each other from before, in addition it took them a while to actually fall into bed. I wish this was how Kaden's book was.... Anyway Feehan also threw a baby in to the mix.

Kane worked for Whitney, oddly enough it was actually Rose who requested to be paired with him, I mean I guess I would do the same if all I had in comparison were men who couldn't wait to rape the women willing or not. The point is that unlike the previous pairings the woman actually chose the man. On top of this Rose escaped and didn't seek out Kane for protection or assistance with the baby. It was Kane who found her after she tipped off the government to a hostage issue. This means that Rose is now being targeted by Whitneys' men and the Mexican Cartel (whom she pissed off in the tipping off). The thing is though that this whole story reminded me of Lora Leigh's book with..... I'm not kidding..... Kane and Sherra called Kiss of Heat. Yes the lead character in that book is Kane too, and yes he worked in the Breeds lab and `paired' up with Sherra like Feehan's Kane paired up with Rose. In addition Sherra escaped the lab, was pregnant (lost the baby though) and they meet back up later and both Kanes are completely devoted to their women.

The close similarities were obvious and Leigh published her book back in November of 2005. Besides the similarity and the odd sex talk (think pregnancy and baby plus hot and heavy) I liked the way this book is pushing the series compared to the last. Fingers crossed that we get to see more of the old team and we start loving the new team a big more.

Another Winner Jan. 4 2011
By RomanceJunkie - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Though I have yet to read a Feehan book I didn't like this one is great. I love that she moves through the different teams, this will prevent the problem she had with the Dark series where after the 12th book it was just the same story all the time. The alpha male persona is definitely there but its great the interaction between hero and heroine. The heroine is lovably vulnerable with her man, but hard as nails and always prepared to do what must be done. The hero is protective but learns to trust his woman with the care of them both and accepts her skills as a soldier.
I look forward to learning more about this Ghostwalker team and seeing more of the other teams and how they interact as well.
Now if only we got more than one of the series a yer I'd be much happier. :)

This is diffidently the best of the GhostWalker series. Very fasted paced the story had me on edge and biting my nails, I was so nervous during the escape scenes. This is Kane and Rose's story they were forced into a breeding program by the deranged Dr. Whitney, Kane helped Rose and the other women escape from the facility wear they were held, but they got separated and Kane has been looking for her for 8 months when they were separated he believed she was pregnant. Kane finds Rose in Mexico right smack in the center of the Mexican Drug Cartel holding hostages. Once Kane and his team of GhostWalkers has secured the hostages they must escape but Kane and Rose get left behind and must escape on their own with her due to have the baby any day!! This story was so exciting and fast pace. The developing Love Story between them was very believable. At time their banter was very funny especially when Rose went in to labor and their enemies were dead on their heal!! Ruthless Game has strong character development with a group of strong secondary character some who were lead characters in previous book. I loved the way she incorporated the baby in the story. The Romantic Loving Making scenes take a while to happen because of Rose condition and then the wait after the baby was born, but when they due happen they have great sex scenes as only Christine Feehan can write!! THIS IS A MUST READ!!! I am more than sure you will not be unhappy after reading this book it leaves you with a good feeling. This book is a stand alone read but I would suggest you read the others books in the series to get the maximum benefit of the story. VERY WELL DONE MRS. FEEHAN!!! PLEASE KEEP THEM COMING!!

This Book Fires on all Cylinders...A Great Blend of Action, Adventure, and Romance Dec 31 2010
By Baroness of Topaz - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ruthless Game is simply outstanding. This is the quality of writing that Christine Feehan excels at delivering. This story features Kane Cannon, a member of the San Francisco-based Ghostwalker Team 3 and Rose, one of the orphaned girls taken and raised as an experiment in Dr. Whitney's compound to be trained as one of his enhance psychic soldiers then forced in the manipulative doctor's experimental breeding program.

The story flows so well because the plot seamlessly intertwines the right amount of action, adventure, fantasy, and romance. While the first part of the books focus on Rose and Kane, the latter section incorporates the other members of Team three, showcasing how they operate not only as an elite tactical team with unique psychic abilities but as a family unit.

Ruthless Game is book nine in the Ghostwalker series and the character and plot development is progressive, exciting, and action-packed. Of special interest was learning how all the teams are banding together in various locales to network with each other and create a safe community for themselves and their growing families. Seeing all the infants and learning their names were a wonderful glimpse of the future of super soldiers.Very highly recommended.
