Night of the Tiger (Mills & Boon Nocturne Bites)

From the moment she sees tiger shifter Scott O'Brien, Marlee Cerrosa can sense his aura of power, his alluring strength, and the gleam of something wild in his eyes. She also feels his returned interest in her—until he learns she's a prisoner of the Sentinels and an accused traitor. Marlee expects him to reject her, but instead he asks for her…

Chess, the narrator, is sick, but with what exactly, she isn’t sure. And to make matters worse, she must share a hospital room with Shannon, her polar opposite. Where Chess is polite, Shannon is rude. Where Chess tolerates pain silently, Shannon screams bloody murder. Where Chess seems to be getting slowly better, Shannon seems to be getting worse. How these teenagers become friends, helping each other come to terms with their illness, makes for a dramatic and deeply moving read.
