My Thoughts 
Ruthless Game is the eight installment in the Ghostwalker series. I just love Christine Feehan, and she is my favorite paranormal author. The Ghostwalker series are thrilling and exciting, and never a dull moment. Street Game is where we learn about another Ghostwalker team, that grew up together on the streets, learning to survive with only each other at their backs. They are all Ghostwalkers, and I loved how tightly knit they all are. Jaimie and Mack have been lovers before, but now fate has brought them together once more, where danger and intrigue are all the more intense, and the desire between them even more so than before. Such a thrilling love story, so action packed that it left me breathless till the very end!!!!

My Favorite Quote 
“Like hell. Like hell I’ll stay away from you.” He stepped closer, his breath coming in ragged gasps. He burned for her. Every moment of every day. He couldn’t think straight without her. She still his mind. Made him human.

I've been a writer all of my life -- it is who I am. I write for myself and always have. The ability to create pictures and emotions with words is such a miracle to me. I read everything; I mean everything! All kinds of books, even encyclopedias. I am fascinated by the written word and I love storytellers. It is a great privilege to be counted one myself.
