Highly recommended! I came across this book by chance on Amazon.com and I am extremely glad I did. The first thing that intrigued me about this book was actually the cover which is mesmerizing, but the true spellbinding thing about this book is the story itself. Kelsey Hayes our heroine has been put off close relationships with people after the death of her parents at an early age. Even her foster parents who she loves don't really know her that well. Things change though after she meets the tiger Dhiren during her summer job at the circus. Eventually she finds herself in India battling mythical creatures, uncovering ancient prophecies, and learning that the hardest thing she might have to do is learn to once again open up her heart. Colleen Houck has managed to weave together the perfect blend of Indian culture, romance, adventure, and Mythology in order to create Tiger's Curse, making it a wonderful read for any romance/adventure fans.
