Kane Cannon, is a Ghostwalker and is every mission is prepared for anything that may come his way. However on this mission, he is unprepared when he sees Rose Patterson, a fellow Ghostwalker, and pregnant with his child, Kane is in shock in seeing her, in Mexico in the middle of a war zone between drug lords, and his protective instincts go through the roof at seeing her eight months pregnant, and even though he knows she can take care of her self (she is a Ghostwalker), this demand to protect her and keep her at his side is unrelenting, and he knows it will never stop. Rose, is determined never to have Whitney find her and her child, she still has nightmares over the things she experienced as a child, and now will never let her own child go through what she had to, even if that means running away from the one man she has trusted. But there are factions out there after her, and she must rely on Kane if they mean to survive, and being together...Ruthless Game is ninth installment in the Ghostwalker Series written by Christine Feehan. I have just loved this series, but I think after reading this latest, that this is my favorite book in the series. I fell in love with both characters, and I think I love them both equally, Kane is very much of a more commanding man, however he has a gentle side with Rose, which I found remarkably sweet. Rose although grew up as a fighter and training to be a Ghostwalker, still wants to feel needed and cherished, and have a prince charming of her own. As always a book from the Ghostwalker series, this one was filled with danger and intrigue and a powerful love story that will sing to your heart, just as it did to mine. Christine Feehan has done it again, having me fall in love with another of her creations.
