My Thoughts:

General Thoughts--

I loved this second book with Team Three! This is one family I would want to have at my back. Being a sappy person who loves babies and gets jazzed with the inclusion of a pregnancy into the storyline, I was a happy camper with this book. And to think Ms. Feehan was able to successfully integrate this into a high-octane action romance, even better. The storyline takes the Whitney GhostWalker conspiracy to a different level, and it's kinda twis
This review turned into much more of a rant than I intended. Sorry. But here it is. There might be a few spoilers.

This was a decent entry in the series but I think I'm getting tired of it. I really loved the first 4 or 5 books in the series but nothing seems really new and fresh here.

This book seemed to go on too long. These two DNA paired lovers are reuniting and it doesn't take long before they admit that they love each other and belong to each other. They escape to the desert, the baby is bo

Wow! Another fabulous installment of the GhostWalker series.

Our Hero and Heroine, Kane and Rose, met in the labs when they were part of Peter Whitney’s experimental breeding program, but even before they were “paired,” they were drawn to one another. When the opportunity arose, Kane helped Rose escape the labs, but then lost track of her. Now, 8 months later, he’s found her, pregnant with his child, and he’s not about to lose her again.

Ruthless Game is the 9th book in the series, and has all the
I wait anxiously to find out each year who the new Ghostwalker book will be about. Then, I start stalking my usual sources for the cover art and official synopsis. I have to say, that this series is one of the few that I absolutely cannot wait for...and I have yet to be disappointed. I love the Ghostwalkers, and this one was no exception.

The funny thing is, of all the Ghostwalker books, I was most hesitant about this one. I don't usually like books with kids as a main plot point, or books where
Meh, I think I'm done with this series. I fully expect a Feehan novel to be overwrought and overwritten and, while I usually find them entertaining, you could easily edit out 10-20% of this one without noticing. Also, the subtitle of this particular book could be "when inconsistencies become plot holes".

Plot: While I appreciate the Feehan spends a lot of effort on getting the fight scenes right, I wish she's spend some of that energy on the actual romance. The genetic engineering + pregnancy/bab

Review for Ruthless Games by Christine Feehan

This is a solid showing for Feehan, not my favorite Ghostwalker story, but still a good addition to the series. I found the relationship between Rose and Kane not quite as intense as the other couples. One of the things I love about this series is the fact that the alpha Ghostwalker boys are sooooo over the top. Over the top alpha-warrior-kick ass-sexual dynamos-hot for their gals-will kill anyone who gets in their way, etc. etc. You get the picture.
Loved it! Loved it! :0) If you have been following this series at all, then you know that this whole time Whitney has been pairing up his female soldiers with his male soldiers. Sometimes with their consent and sometimes without. All in the name of gaining that first Superbaby. With Rose it was Kane she choose, she thought and Kane thought he choose her. But once Rose realized that her baby was going to be taken from her, she escaped.

Now she is on the run in a little border town at the end of h

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. Mexico is the hiding place of Rose Patterson, fugitive, ex-lover, a fellow Ghostwalker pregnant with his child. Rose is in flight from the insidious experiments that still live in her dreams, and from the madman who’d do anything to take her child. Of all t ...more

Christine Feehan’s Ruthless Game starts out with Kane Cannon and his team of psychic supersoldiers infiltrating a drug cartel owned town to liberate some hostages. During the mission, Kane finds out that the love of his life, Rose, is in the town. She is pregnant with his child which she got when the evil Dr. Whitney forced them to copulate to produce supersoldier offspring. Kane and Rose escape together and start a difficult path in discovering whether their love is genuine or just faked by the ...more
As per usual, the newest Ghost Walker book just makes me even more excited about the series and in suspense for what will happen next and who the couple will be. I liked that this book was a little different than the previous books. We have actually seen the main couple before, and they had a previous relationship (if that is what you can call being in the breeding program together...). They know that the other is a Ghost Walker, and already have a bond and trust that previous couples (other tha ...more
The ninth installment in the sci-fi/romance GhostWalkers' series and it did not disappoint This Reader. The main character's story--Rose and Kane--began in an earlier book, and I questioned how the author was going to redeem Kane's character. Redeem him she did and with gusto!

Started with a bang, had some intense action-packed scenes, hot love scenes, and minor updates on past characters. Brief mentions of Flame and Gator (Night Game), Lily (Shadow Game), and a few others.

Grrr. I had a spectacular review written and Goodreads lost it. So....

Revisiting with Mack and the team. They are truly a self made family and it shows.
Kane is a stand up guy, going to be a great father and definitely one of the more Alpha males I've read lately. Loved him!
Sebastian is such a cutie. As long as he doesn't start speaking in sentences before he's a year old, I'm fine with his special abilities. LOL

Rose has been on the run from Whitney and his breeding program for 8 months, and Kane has been searching unsuccessfully for her. Then Kane’s GhostWalker team is assigned to rescue some cartel hostages, and it turns out that Rose is the informer who provided the information about where they were. The hostages are successfully rescued, but Kane and Rose don’t make it to the helicopter in time, and now they’re on the run from Whitney and from the cartel. And Rose’s baby decides that now is a good t ...more
Kane may officially be my favorite ghostwalker! I loved this book so much, and the relationship between Kane and Rose was so sweet.

I know Kane was all lethal just like every other Ghostwalker, but he was just a big teddy bear when it came to Rose and Sebastian. I found him less controlling and demanding on his woman, and he really listened to her and cared about HER needs. This is a little bit different from some of the other Ghostwalkers...they tend to think of themselves first.

They were both
AWESOME addition to the GhostWalker series!! These books just keep getting better and better!

Rose and Kane were two amazing characters! I love that there wasn't a struggle between them about wanting to be together. They both knew right from the start that they wanted to be together. Very refreshing!

I do think this one was my favorite Ghostwalker book or tied with my favorite ghostwalker book.

Ruthless Game is Kane and Rose’s story. For those of you like me and don’t know who the heck these characters are let us refresh your memory. Think back to Deadly Game (book #5 and one of my all time favs). Kane was in Dr. (Evil) Whitney’s breading program when he fell for Rose, one of the orphan’s Whitney bought to enhance and run his inhuman tests on. After finding out that she is pregnant Rose escapes with the other girls and run away from Kane (this isn’t even mentioned
Another great entry in Feehan's action paranormal series about the Ghostwalkers. This one centers on Kane, a member of Ghostwalker Team 3 [urban combat specialists based in San Francisco] whose story started in the last book, Street Game.

I really like the concept behind Team 3 - they are a self-made family who found each other as kids on the streets who had some psychic powers. Whitney [the brilliant but evil mastermind behind the GhostWalkers] enhanced them even further but they are still fami

When Kane Cannon's team goes on a misson to Mexico to save the lives of, El Presidente's kidnapped family members, he finds the last person he ever expected to see, but has spent the last 8 months looking for: Rose Patterson.

Kane is a member of the third Ghostwalker team that volunteered for Dr. Whitney's psychic enhancements and met Rose when he was assigned to base where Dr. Whitney implemented his "breeding program". Kane is immediately attracted to Rose and asks to be paired with her in the
Ruthless Game is book 9 in Christine Feehan’s Ghost Walkers series. Although this is my least favorite of her series’, Ruthless Game is probably my favorite of the nine books so far.

The Ghost Walker series is sort of a techno-thriller/romance series – concerning a group of genetically enhanced “super soldiers,” with a wide range of special psychic and physical abilities. In most of the past eight books I’ve found myself skipping through the military missions and focusing in on the romance aspec
This book was fun to read and had a different tone from some of the last ones. I was so happy when Kane and Rose actually talked to each other about what they were feeling instead of hiding it. It made for a much more fun, especially when they were great with verbally sparing with each other, that teasing tone at the forefront. After they had the baby, the time they spent together was a great way for them to really get to know each other and build that trust they need.

I also loved when they fin

I had hoped that this would be the book to raise my flagging enthusiasm for the Ghostwalkers series, but it did not turn out to be the case. Nonetheless, I did like the heroine and the sex scenes were hot, so I give this book a star for each.

After a series of disappointing or unmemorable female protagonists (not Feehan), it was quite exciting to read a book whose heroine seemed rather remarkable. One of the first things that distinguished her from the other heroines I've read recently was the f

It does make me want my own warehouse to mkae over with all the fun e-toys! Ruthless Game is the ninth in the military, science-fiction GhostWalker series an revolves intimately around Rose and Kane; less intimately around the San Francisco-based GhostWalker team.

Pregnant with Kane's child, Kane helps Rose escape Whitney's lab and Rose promptly goes on the run. A constant run. Everytime Whitney's men get close, Rose takes off until she has to contact her government to rescue two cartel hostages.
This is the ninth book in the GhostWalker series and focuses again (as with the eighth book) on members of GhostWalker Team Three. In this book, the team is deployed to Mexico to rescue two hostages (relatives of el presidente) from a drug cartel. In the process, the team discovers Rose, one of the women who escaped from Dr. Whitney's breeding program with the help of the GhostWalkers. Kane, one of the team members, has been searching for Rose for months, ever since Dr. Whitney paired them as pa ...more
Loved this one - one of my favorites of the Ghostwalker series.
Ruthless Game, the ninth book in Christine Feehan’s GhostWalker series, is filled with high octane suspense, friendship, loyalty, and love. With hostage rescues, drug cartels, a redoubtable and loyal group of fellow GhostWalkers, a courageous and loving hero and a heroine who can shoot an Uzi with the best of them and also happens to be pregnant, well, you have the makings of hold-on-to your seats, exciting romantic suspense. I have
I like a lot of Christine Feehan's work, and Rose is an awesome heroine. Absolutely tough as nails and able to handle herself without any help. But that doesn't mean she wont accept it from Kane. Equally tough, this is one of those types of stories that I am sucker for. Lots of good action featuring two people that love each other even though they haven't had any love in their life until they met each other. The lengths both of them, but especially Rose, will go to protect their baby lends a ver ...more
Eva (TXBookjunkie)
Better than the last few GhostWalker books - probably due to better pacing of the action/dialogue scenes and less pages long of self-contemplation by the hero/heroine. Kane and Rose seemed like much stronger characters and their relationship grew steadily through the book as they reconnected. Some of the action scenes (and I'll admit some of the sex scenes) dragged a bit due to the length and I was a little put off by the constant reference to breast milk, but if you can stand some of Feehan's l ...more
We met Kane Cannon before. He is part of Team 3 GW and he served for a while as a guard in one of Whitney's "facilities". He helped Mari and some other women escape from Whitney's breeding program. However, he was paired with Rose who was pregnant when she escaped.

This book starts with Team 3 going into a Mexican town to rescue hostages from a drug cartel. They were tipped off by an informant - who turns out to be Rose. When they save the hostages, they find out there is also a 5 yo boy - who i

Ruthless Game is the ninth book in the Ghostwalker series from author, Christine Feehan. It’s not absolutely necessary to read the previous eight books to follow the story of Ruthless Game, but for a more complete picture I’d suggest reading them. The protagonists in Ruthless Game are Kane Cannon and Rose Patterson. In Street Game, the previous book in the series, Kane was stationed at one of Whitney’s compounds as a guard for some of the girls in the breeding program and was eventually paired u ...more
