In 1823, after spending years overseas, Lord Michael Keynes returns home from India. However, he does not return to the family fold, but instead plans to kill his older stepbrother, the notorious Jermyn, Duke of Tallant, not because he wants to inherit, but because he detests his abominable sibling. Jermyn looks forward to the confrontation with an eye on a different outcome.

Michael, accompanied by his Indian friend Hari Singh, rents a room at the estate of Beata Neri. Also residing there is Mira Holocombe and her wheelchair-bound father, who has almost no muscular movement. Jermyn drove them off their estate. Even though he knows better, Michael falls in love with Mira, but fears that if Jermyn finds out she will become an endangered pawn in their life and death contest. Mira reciprocates Michael's feelings, but seems to react with horror whenever Michael touches her. There is someone else who wants both brothers dead.

HEART OF THE TIGER is a delightful Regency romantic suspense novel with some eastern paranormal elements.
