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.


Sigh. Yet another Feehan book I can’t finish. This time, it’s because the bad guys are experimenting on infants. But it’s not just in the background, it’s a huge part of the plot, and it’s too much for me. That’s my hard line. I have a baby at home, and all I can do is keep imagining her in place of the baby that Pepper is protecting. It’s too much for me.

The plot itself is interesting, although it feels less like a PNR, and much more like a Thriller. I used to be a huge horror and thriller fan back in middle school and high school, but I just can’t read it anymore. This book felt like it would just be too hard to read.

So, I DNF’d yet another Christine Feehan book. Her men have consent issues anyway, so I may not have liked it to begin with.

From other reviews I’ve read, this is a typical Ghostwalkers book, so take that for what it’s worth.

I think I’m giving up on Feehan.

Luckily she’s popular enough that there are so many reviews out there, that you can find five stars no problem. For me, babies being experimented on and then thrown out like garbage is a hard line. I’m done.
