#1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan is "one of the best storytellers around" (RT Book Reviews). Find out why as two lovers surrounded by greed and corruption discover there's no telling whom you can trust—or who will come out on top...

When members of a United Nations joint security force are taken hostage by radical terrorists in Indonesia, Captain Ezekiel Fortunes is called to lead the rescue team. Part of a classified government experiment, Zeke is a supersoldier with enhanced abilities. He can see better and run faster than the enemy, disappear when necessary and hunt along any terrain. There are those in the world willing to do anything for power like that...

A formidable spy genetically engineered to hide in plain sight, Bellisia rarely meets a man who doesn't want to control her or kill her. But Zeke is different. His gaze, his touch—they awaken feelings inside her that she never thought possible. He’s the kind of man she could settle down with—if she can keep him alive...

Stories in the swamp compound of the new Ghostwalkers continue as Ezekial "Zeke" Fortunes finds his mate. He is the ultimate protector--always has been for his younger brothers, and now he is for Nonny, Pepper, the triplets, Cayenne, and his team mates. He has wanted more for is own life and felt a void, but never through he would find someone or really deserved it. He has his secrets and is known as a strong soldier, hunter, and protector...and very few see his vulnerable side or know the power that he is truly capable of.

One sniff and sight was all it took for Zeke to be enthralled with Bellisia Adams. He did not know that she was destined to save him in more ways than one. She's also engineered with special capabilities, but has lived a very different life. Her abilities were kind of awesome and fascinating. She was likable and in some ways vulnerable, but she can also just as dangerous as the other other women.

Can they learn to trust each other enough to explore their attraction? It's a dangerous game.

Their swamp fortress is coming into more and more danger with some new players eager for information and the power and money it brings. It's not just Whitney that is a threat anymore.

I love the characters and how they have formed this tight family unit at the compound.  I adore Nonny and the triplets and like the team. But the last few books with the new Ghostwalker team in some ways feel a bit repetitive (maybe because so much is centered around swamp now and the women are different yet have some common history) and within the story itself it seems like back stories or details get repeated pretty often. It helps us not forget, but sometimes it makes the story drag a bit.

I do like the differences in the characters, their abilities, and especially the DNA mixes.  I still find myself addicted to these Ghostwalkers and their mates. I found both Zeke and Bellisia likeable and I was more connected with them than the couple in the last book. This one has plenty of action, surprises, and steamy scenes. But it also has that sense of camaraderie, family, and humor as well. Their group is growing and it takes more team work to keep them all safe. It's a love story mixed in with action, suspense, and betrayal. There are some definite power moves and plot changes in this one. There are plenty more Ghostwalkers with stories to tell. I am looking forward especially to Joe, Mordichai, and Malichai. 

I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.

See Kim's 5 star and Tammy's 4 star review

Hailed as "the queen of paranormal romance" by J.R. Ward, #1 New York Times bestselling author “Christine Feehan continues to amaze readers” (The Eternal Night) with her phenomenal novels. Now, from the author of the Dark Carpathian series, comes the newest in Christine Feehan's explosive GhostWalker series…

GhostWalker Wyatt Fontenot knows the price he paid for the secret military experiments that gave him his special catlike abilities. After all, he left his bayou home a healer and came back a killer. While Wyatt and his GhostWalker brother Gator may have known exactly the sort of game they were getting into, Wyatt never anticipated where it would lead—or to whom.

The swamps hold many mysteries, but few are as sinuously seductive as Le Poivre de Cayenne. The woman the locals call Pepper is every bit as enigmatic as the three little girls she’s desperately trying to protect. From what, Wyatt is soon to discover. Right now Pepper needs a man like Wyatt. Passionately. But her secrets are about to take them both deeper into the bayou than either imagined—where desire is the deadliest poison of all.


Spider Game (GhostWalkers #12)
Add to Goodreads

In the new GhostWalker novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Viper Game, a trained killer meets his match in a woman whose very kiss can stop a heart.

The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn’t exactly Trap Dawkins’ idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn’t there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It’s where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn’t want to leave a place like this with a woman like her? 

It’s not Cayenne’s fault. Locked up, experimented on and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way—with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.

IN HER WORDS:

I am a mother, first and foremost in my life. Family is very important to me. I have several children all of whom drive me crazy on a daily basis. And I have four Maltese that are even worse. LOL! I love living in the country and I find that it continues to inspire my writing.. which is my ultimate passion in life.

I am a writer and have been almost my entire life. I have to write every day or I'll drive my family crazy. I first became a published author in 1999 with the release of Dark Prince. Before that I had a wide variety of jobs including being a full time mom, a martial arts instructor, a telephone operator, and I even worked for a newspaper. Now I’m able to write full time. I usually have four new books released per year. (www.christinefeehan.com)
