The sparks of unexpected passion ignite in this electrifying GhostWalker novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan.

When Malichai Fortunes attacks a problem, he does it full force—a habit that earns the GhostWalker a painful injury and a forced vacation in San Diego, California. With nothing but physical therapy on the horizon, Malichai is starting to get restless...until a striking blue-eyed blonde makes all his senses come alive.

Amaryllis is kind and warm and sees beyond Malichai’s rough exterior, but he can tell there’s something she’s hiding. Her innate healing abilities indicate she might be a GhostWalker—albeit an untrained one. Malichai doesn’t think their paths crossing is anything more than coincidence, but he can sense that one wrong word could send Amaryllis running.

When strange events at his temporary retreat put Malichai on high alert, he knows he won’t be able to deal with the threat and keep his woman safe in his weakened state. But calling in his brothers means telling Amaryllis what he really is, and revealing that he knows the truth about her too.…

Lethal Game continues the Ghostwalkers series and I am really loving it! Malichai is an enhanced super soldier who was recently injured on a mission. To his dismay, he must now take a “vacation”. While at a cute bed and breakfast in California, he meets Amaryllis, a worker at the B and B who is most certainly hiding something. Challenge accepted!

Malichai is a badass super soldier for sure, but seeing him in a noncombat setting, doing domestic things like fixing a dishwasher really made him a dynamic character. He breaks a lot of the trends of male heroes-he isn’t conceited, he isn’t a whore, and he values kindness. Amaryllis is a mystery in the beginning (to both the reader and Malichai) but it was entertaining to see Malichai peel back the layers! Amaryllis’ history was intriguing and I really appreciated how developed her character was in Lethal Game.

Don’t let the cute, sea side setting fool you-there is still plenty of action and danger. However, the plot of Lethal Game doesn’t have some of the super dark elements that some of Feehan’s books harbor. I thought it was kind of a nice change (I read Vendetta Road last month and it was VERY dark). While I have not read all the books in the Ghostwalkers series, Lethal Game makes me want to read more of them for sure! If you like a touch of paranormal/supernatural with your suspense, Lethal Game delivers in spades. It also gives you some GREAT characters that will hold a place in my heart for sure.
