Ruthless Game

Ruthless Games by Christine Feehan

GhostWalker Kane Cannon is pure male—animalistic, sexual, protective, instinctive—and his past missions have prepared him for anything. But his newest assignment, to rescue hostages in Mexico, plunges him into a hot zone he never anticipated: the hiding place of Rose Patterson—a fugitive, an ex-lover, a fellow GhostWalker pregnant with his child.

Rose is in flight from the insidious experiments that still haunt her dreams, and from the madman who’d do anything to take her child. Of all the GhostWalkers enlisted to hunt her down, Kane is the only one she can trust. But as their passion reignites, the stakes are raised. Because Kane is now a wanted man as well. And together they’re about to face the most difficult challenge of all: staying together and staying alive.

My Review
Rose Patterson is pregnant and on the run. The small Mexican town seems to offer exactly what she’s looking for, anonymity with the “protection” of a local drug lord. But when members of the cartel kidnap an innocent mother and daughter, she has to do something. Unfortunately, the people she contacted for help sent in the GhostWalkers and one of them is Kane Cannon, the father of her unborn child.

When Kane discovers Rose is their contact, he’s determined to rescue her along with the hostages. But Rose refuses to get on the rescue chopper without him, and together, they go on the run into the desert. She has a hiding place and there Rose and Kane bring their child into the world.

The peace they find with each other and their son is short-lived, however. They’re under surveillance—though not by the cartel, but by their shared nemesis, Dr. Peter Whitney—and they must find a way to get past their observers and onto their rescue chopper without getting caught.

They make it safely to San Francisco, but their safety is only an illusion. The cartel has placed a million dollar price tag on her head and Dr. Whitney will do anything to get Rose—and more importantly, baby Sebastian—back under his control. But with a traitor within their midst, can Kane and the GhostWalkers keep Rose and Sebastian safe, weed out the traitor, defeat Whitney and end the cartel’s threat?

I give this story THREE AND A HALF STARS.
