Summary from Goodreads;
The last thing teenager Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing over the summer was meeting Ren, a mysterious white tiger and cursed Indian prince when she learns she alone can break the Tiger's curse, Kelsey's life is turned upside-down. The unlikely duo journeys halfway around the world to piece together an Indian prophecy, find a way to free the man trapped by a centuries-old spell, and discover the path to their true destiny.

Passion. Fate. Loyalty.

Would you risk it all to change your destiny?
The gorgeous and well designed cover was obviously what drew me into getting this book, and the synopsis helped too.

Tiger's Curse captured my attention completely after the first few pages into reading it. The writing was unique and seemed to flow straight out of the book. Colleen seemed to cast a spell on me through the writing, because I couldn't seem to put the book down. I loved the very idea of Indian legends and myths, any type of myths really. The characters were hilarious, really. There would be a time when they were in a dangerous situation and someone would crack a joke or do something completely hilarious.

“He seemed very pleased with himself for surviving a near-death experience. I could practically hear him chanting to himself: I overcame. I conquered. I’m a man etc etc.” 
― Colleen Houck, Tiger's Curse
The romance was totally swoon-worthy. Scoot over Anna and St. Clair, cause Ren and Kelsey are taking over. This book captures the type of romance every young adult person wants, or anyone else, really. I Can't wait to read Tiger's Curse, whose cover holds Ren's brother,Kishan, right?
Tiger's Curse was captivating, hilarious, and had the perfect touch of romance.
You can go on the website and see official music playlists and book trailers for all of the books.
