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?
