Nila's world is literally torn apart when she gets attacked in the airport and saved by Mitch. It isn't until later that she learns she's not human or not all human, she's half tiger and the shifter community does not like that all. So Mitch has become her protector by orders from her father.
The whole book was spellbinding and I was absorbed in the story. I felt so bad for Nila, she was just going about her day with not a care in the world and then somebody tries to kill her, that's not right. I would be so pissed if I was put in that situation. The sexual tension between her and Mitch was off that charts and I was rooting for them all the way. I recommend this book.
She shouldn’t exist.
When Nila De Luca finds out she’s the impossible offspring of a human father and a tiger shifter mother, she knows her life will never be the same. She refuses to be a pawn in tiger politics or to have her future dictated by other people’s agendas. But before she can settle into her new life, she has to survive the vicious attacks of her mother’s mate and the covetous grab of a crazy tiger determined to use her for his own purposes. Her only ally is a sexy tiger shifter, a man she wants more than any other before, and with a passion that calls to her animal side.
He can’t have her.
Mitch Chernikov knows exactly how important Nila is to his people. She represents hope for their continued survival. His sole job is to keep her alive so she can fulfill that promise. He knows he won’t be allowed to keep her for himself. That knowledge doesn’t stop him from wanting her. Or from answering the passion that burns so fiercely between them. But to keep her, he’ll have to fight for her. And it will be a fight to the death.
