Interior Designer Kelly Griffin travels to Bangladesh in hopes of finding her lost brother photographer Jeff. However, the only person who would be worth serving as her guide into the dangerous Sundabans region, home of the man-eating tigers, is the half-drunk American Sam Tanner. He tells her that her sibling is dead and she needs to go home.

When an earthquake devastates the area, Sam helps Kelly and others to safety. Fearing she will turn to a nasty person to escort her on her search, he takes her to the Sundabans, a place where his best friend just died. As they search for her sibling and elude hungry tigers, they fall in love, but neither expects the other to survive the quest.

HEART OF A TIGER is an entreating romantic suspense in which the vivid exotic locale in many ways takes on a character of its own. The lead couple is a delightful duo who initially seems out of the African Queen, but the audience will soon realize that neither Sam nor Kelly is really a close match though both are delightful protagonists. Fans of concise plots in an interesting rarely written about location will want to ride this wonderful tiger.
