He haunts the jungle – and her dreams
When Dr. Sally Carter travels to India to regroup from a broken heart the last thing she wants is to fall in love. But Raja Asoka (Ash) Bhosle is entirely too attractive to ignore, even though she knows it can only end in tears. Hers.
Ash guards a secret that lives in legend, protecting tigers from mindless slaughter. From the moment he sets eyes on the Australian doctor, he wants her, despite the objections of his mother and her unsuitability as a wife.
While Ash fights tiger poachers, Sally struggles against cultural prejudice and increasingly vivid nightmares. Can the Legend of the Black Tiger be the bond that brings her and Ash closer together, or will it rip them apart? The closer Sally comes to understanding what the legend means, the more frequent the nightmares become. Is she losing her sanity, or is there more to Sally than she herself knows?

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I thought the first few chapters of this book a little awkward, but as it moved on, I became totally absorbed. The story of Ash and Sally is the main theme, but it is set in an exotic background that rings with authenticity. (Not that I am expert on life in an Indian village.) A satisfying conclusion and a book that I am happy to recommend.
Greta van der Rol is known for her action-packed SciFi adventures with a dollop of romance ... and to-die-for male alpha lead characters. Well, this time she's done a romance with a paranormal twist that snares your heart and your imagination right from the get-go. Dr. Sally Carter has taken a position in India, working near a tiger preserve and providing medical care for the villagers in the area. And running full tilt from a broken heart. Raja Asoka (Ash) Bhosle is the man who hires her. Ash has devoted his life to fighting poaching and safeguarding secrets that have become the stuff of legends. Tiger poaching is a nasty business and those who fight it risk much. Ash places his family's resources and even his life on the line to stop the wanton slaughter of tigers. Sally, too, struggles to overcome prejudice and cultural differences ... and her overwhelming attraction to a dangerous man. Legend and reality collide, placing Sally's sanity at risk when nightmares blend into her waking consciousness. What she discovers--about the legend, about her past, and about the man she loves--will change everything. I'll admit it, I fell head-over-heels. This is a page-turner, heart-stopper, whopper of a read. I give it 5 Stars. Enjoy.
