The #1 New York Times bestselling “queen of paranormal romance”* is back with a sexy new series starring a Chicago crime family that hides a dark, mystical secret…
 
Whether it’s fast cars or fast women, Stefano Ferraro gets what he wants. When he’s not fodder for the paparazzi, he commands Ferraro family businesses—both legitimate and illegitimate.

While their criminal activity is simply a rumor yet to be proven, no one knows the real truth. The Ferraros are a family of shadow riders capable of manipulating light and dark, an ability Stefano thought ran in his family alone—until now…

With little left to her name, Francesca Cappello has come to Chicago in hopes of a new life. She wasn’t expecting to attract the attention of a man with primal hunger in his eyes, driven to claim her as his to protect and to please. And if he discovers her secret, it could ruin her…

Excellent, Excellent start to this new series. Shadow Rider penned by bestseller author Christine Feehan starring a Chicago crime family that hides a dark, mystical secret. The Ferraro family is respected by many feared by everyone. The Ferraro isn’t your normal crime family. They’re what you call enforcers. When you can’t get help from the police or if your problem is too big for the police to handle then the Ferraro are the people you go to see.

In Shadow Rider, we’re introduced to Stefano Ferraro head of the Ferraro family. I really loved Stefano he doesn’t take  BS from anyone one, matter affect none of the Ferraro members does. But Stefano is the worst of the lot. When he was in a rush to get to a meeting something told him to be late that day. Turning around he sees her…or her shadow first before the women. A strong impulse told him that this mystery woman was someone very important to him.

Francesca Cappello was down on her luck and has come to Chicago in hope to out distance herself from her mysterious past. She wasn’t expecting to attract the attention of any man. Especially someone like Steffano. But driven to claim her as his own, he has forced his way into her life. Now, when her past has caught up with her it will talk all of Steffano’s skill to keep her alive.

I did read other reviews before deciding to read the book for myself. Regardless of what the other reviewers written about this book I was going to read it either way being a big fan of Christine Feehan. Yes what you have read about this book was true there was a lot of “F” bombs going around mainly by Steffano himself, in fact Francesca called him on it a few times. But I don’t think that took away from the story at all… show me a crime family who doesn’t swear.

Shadow Rider is a fast pace, action packed from start to finish. Christine Feehan captured your attention from the very first word and didn’t let you go until the end.

I definitely will recommend Shadow Rider as a must read this summer. I can’t wait until the next book in this series.

Spider Game (Ghostwalker Novel Book 12)

In the new GhostWalker novel by the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Viper Game, a trained killer meets his match in a woman whose very kiss can stop a heart.

The Cajun dive in the middle of the godforsaken swamps wasn’t exactly Trap Dawkins’ idea of fun. But the GhostWalker wasn’t there for a good time. He was looking for her. Cayenne. It’s where she found her victims. Poor suckers. Then again, who wouldn’t want to leave a place like this with a woman like her?

It’s not Cayenne’s fault. Locked up, experimented on and never knowing kindness, she was bred this way—with a heart of pure venom. Trap understands her. He survived his own dark past and he shares her desire for getting even. But now Trap’s greatest danger is Cayenne herself. Because what’s inside her is hard to control—especially when it’s aroused by a lover as reckless as Trap.

My Review: I just love Christine Feehan “GhostWalker” series. I have been a big fan of this series since the beginning with Shadow Game. When it comes to this series I don’t have any favorites. I just know that it just keeps getting better and better, and that Spider Game fits right in with the rest.

What will Dr. Whitney think up next he has snakes four of them matter effect. Now he has one special Black Widow spider. When it comes to alluding soldiers there is no one better than Cayenne.

If you don’t know Cayenne, she was set for termination in “Viper Game” , while rescuing two children also set for termination, Trap Dawkins set her free as well.

In Spider Game we get more detail about Cayenne and Trap. Which to me crazy Dr. Whitney knew what he was doing when he paired these two together they both was lost and both without family due to know fault of their own. Cayenne finally getting the first taste of freedom since her conception doesn’t know what to do, only thing she knows is that she will do anything to stay free.

Trap…his name is fitting since at an early age with his very high IQ felt trapped, especially after his father and uncles murdered his entire family. Now, Trap is looking to make a home  for himself, and he has set his eyes on Cayenne to make that happen. But first he must go on a hunt to keep Cayenne’s enemy from completing their mission.

Viper Game (GhostWalkers Series #11)

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.

My Review: This was a really great book. But what book in Christine Feehan GhostWalkers Series weren’t great. What I really love about this series is that all the books are stand-alone making picking up one in the middle of a series not a hardship.

Viper Game was excellent from start to finish from the time Wyatt returns home to the Bayou to the time Wyatt meets Pepper and three little girls she is trying to protect from an all too familiar foe of Wyatt’s and the GhostWalkers. But there is a mystery behind Pepper and the three little girls that took me for a surprise once it came to light. Viper Game was such an enjoyable read that I read it twice back to back which was very unusual for me.

Cat’s Lair (Leopard Series #7) Book Review

I had the pleasure of reading Cat’s Lair (Leopard Series #7) written by the very talented Christine Feehan. And can I say that I actually enjoyed this book. The plot was very well thought out and the characters old and new were very enjoyable all in themselves.
The story is about Cat Benoit who is on the run from a very and controlling male leopard who becomes the guarding of Cat at a very young age. The story heats up, as soon as, Cat meets Ridley Cromer, the instructor at the martial art school she attends.
There were some twists in the story that I totally didn’t see coming. it was really great to see old characters for instance Jake and Emma make an appearance. For those of you who don’t know who Jake and Emma are pick up a copy of Burning Wild the story that started it all.
