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.
A #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
NEVER BEFORE PUBLISHED
INCLUDES A BONUS EXCERPT FROM CHRISTINE FEEHAN’S GHOSTWALKER NOVEL, NIGHT GAME
Wyatt Fontenot is part of a secret military experiment, he had been altered with catlike abilities. He came home to his Nonny to find she had been bullied by a group of men on the other side of the bayou. He knew the place and who was running it, but what did they have to do with his Nonny and who on earth would bully a little old woman. Something was not adding up. Wyatt was on a mission to find out and to scare the men who pushed her down. What he did not expect was finding Pepper and what came with her.
Pepper also altered but not by choice was running for her life and the life of the child she was trying to save. In the process they got hurt, she needed help. She had to get to the house across the Bayou. The old woman who lived there would leave blankets and food on her porch at night. The old woman also known as Nonny had no idea what was out there, but she left the items anyway. Pepper knew she would help but the help she ended up getting was not what she expected and from whom.
A fight for truth, for life and most of all freedom. What is a life if you can’t live it freely? Feehan portrayed exactly that in this book. Pepper needed help it was not just for her but for three little girls who also was given no choice. What they did to these girls and are still doing because Pepper could only run with one is unimaginable. Pepper who was already strong is now stronger with Wyatt and his crew by her side. They will stop at nothing to get those girls out, even if it means their own lives.
The passion between Wyatt and Pepper was intense to say the least. This is where the story fell a little. The passion was too intense for this story and Wyatt’s domineering and jealous personality added no value. The story in itself pulled you in, but these parts pulled you out.
Viper Game was a not a favorite however It is a series that I recommend
