Tour + Excerpt and Giveaway: Tiger's Dream by Colleen Houck


Tiger's Dream by Colleen Houck

A tiger left behind.

A goddess in need of an ally.

Stranded in a time and place he never wished for, Kishan Rajaram must carry out his destiny of assisting the beautiful yet extremely irritable goddess Durga. This daunting task is not made easy by the fact that he must also face the truth about the girl he loves and the brother who stole her away.

When the wily shaman Phet appears and tells Kishan that Kelsey needs him, he jumps at the chance to see her again. In his efforts to save her, Kishan discovers that the curse he thought was over is just beginning. As time unravels around him, Kishan realizes that the fates of all those he holds dear lie in hands.

The goddess’s power hangs in the balance. Kishan has no choice but to sacrifice the unthinkable to fight the dark forces swirling around the woman he’s charged to protect. As he does, he discovers that love and loyalty create their own magic and accepts that he must decide his destiny once and for all.

Tiger’s Dream is the conclusion to the epic Tiger’s Curse fantasy romance series that left you breathless.



Praise for TIGER'S CURSE



“…a sweet romance and heart-pounding adventure. I found myself cheering, squealing and biting my nails-all within a few pages. In short, Tiger's Curse is magical!” ―Becca Fitzpatrick, New York Times bestselling author of Hush, Hush



"High adventure ensues. As in Tiger's Curse and Tiger's Quest, this story is part action-adventure and part romance…The novel will satisfy the saga's fans, who will be delighted by the prospect of a fourth volume.” ―Booklist



“Houck cranks the love-o-stat up another notch…Hypersteamy romance...'hot, melty, smoldering' (but still chaste) make-out sessions…” ―Kirkus Reviews



“Forget vampires and werewolves, tigers are the new hottest thing…a guaranteed page turner with a huge twist at the end that will leave you breathless.” ―RT Book Reviews

EXCERPT
Phet will be a good teacher. I promise. He taught me everything I know.”
She peered up at me distrustfully, one eye peeping through her curtain of hair. “It won’t be the same,” she said.
“I know. But you don’t need me anymore.”
“It doesn’t feel like that.”
“No,” I agreed. “It doesn’t.”
I heard a sniffle and saw her dash her hands across her eyes.
“I’ve brought something for you,” I said.
“What is it?” she asked, turning halfway toward me.
“It’s something to remember me by.” Pulling out the pouch, I drew out the tiger necklace and held it out to her.
“Is it the tiger we saw on our journey?” she asked.
I shook my head. “No. This tiger is very special. When you feel lonely or sad or if you aren’t sure what to do, ask your tiger. He will always be there for you and he will tell you the right way to go. Here.” Prying open her fingers, I placed the tiger on her palm. “Ask him a question.”
“Will…,” she paused and licked her lips, “…will I see Kishan again?” The tiger glowed and she gasped with wonder.
“There. You see? He’s got a bit of magic in him. I promise that he will always watch over you and do his best to keep you from harm. When he warms in your palm, the answer is yes and those around you speak the truth, but when he remains cold, you should move forward with caution. Do you understand?”
Ana nodded, her eyes large with wonder. “Thank you for this gift.”
I touched my finger to her chin and smiled. “I would give you anything you asked for, Anamika Kalinga.”
Tears filled her eyes. “Then will you stay?”
“I will always be with you Ana. Even if you can’t see me.”
