Review: Night Game - Christine Feehan
But can two people haunted by violent betrayals trust the passion that soon ignites between them? Or is one of them just playing another seductive and deadly night game?

When Gator is asked to return home to the Bayou to investigate the disappearance of a family friend Lily has another task for him. She has reason to believe that Iris (known as Flame), one of the girls Dr Whitney experimented on as a child, is in the area. Gator is the only GhostWalker with psychic abilities to match Flame's so it is up to him to track her down. Flame has every reason not to trust Lily or any of the other GhostWalkers so it's going to take all of Gator's charm to bring her round.
Although Night Game is the third book in the GhostWalkers series I think you could easily read this as a stand alone story. However, I'm really enjoying this series so I'd definitely recommend reading the books in order starting with Shadow Game. I think Night Game was probably my favorite book in the series so far, it will take you on a complete roller coaster of emotion laughing one minute and close to tears the next. I think Christine Feehan managed to create the perfect blend of action and romance along with some great bedroom action.
I really loved Gator - he is charming, funny and sexy as hell. He fell for Flame hard and wasn't afraid to show his feelings despite her reluctance to get involved. I loved the banter between him, his brother and the other GhostWalkers and they had me laughing quite a few times. Another great character was his Grandmother - all I'm going to say is watch out for the bag she gives to Flame, hilarious!
Flame was a great heroine, she was strong and tough and prepared to stick up for herself but at the same time she had a vulnerable side and my heart went out to her. She had an incredibly tough start to life at the mercy of Dr Whitney and it isn't surprising that she doesn't trust anyone who was involved in the experiments that were carried out on her as a child. Some of the scenes with her were heartbreaking and I was close to tears on several occasions.
Overall this was another great installment of the GhostWalkers series & has left me very keen to read the next book. I'm very curious to see if Flame's theory is correct - I have a strong suspicion that it is but I'll have to read Conspiracy Theory to find out. If you're a fan of paranormal romance I'd definitely recommend giving this series a try.
