Star Catcher (Ghost Tiger Saga, #0)
As a newly-inducted Yukimusha, Iro Kaede's life is already planned out for her. She knows she is to spend the rest of her years defending the empire of Yukura as she has been trained to do - and that one's feelings about it simply do not come into the mix.
When she and her white tiger, Hyung, are selected for an escort mission, Kaede is none too pleased to find them sharing the task with a particular boy she can't stand. Disaster strikes before long, leaving them without any other choice save to rely on one another. A girl and her tiger must now set aside old arguments as well as petty rivalries in order to survive - and, in doing so, discover that there are far greater perils at hand than the sinister call to war.
