Princess Adama Fawkes is the pampered and utterly enchanting heir to the throne of Lyros.  It is while attending a ball in which her mother, the Queen, tries very hard not to be obvious about her search for a suitable husband for Adama, that she sees him for the first time.  The Tiger.  Tengri Khan, the prince of the Tarks.  A warrior unlike any other, Adama is at once fascinated and thrilled by the attention he bestows on her.  When he asks her to dance and she accepts, she had no idea how much her life will change from that moment forward.

Tengri Khan is used to everyone doing exactly what he wants, when he wants.  Seeing Adama across the crowded ballroom, he knows without a doubt that he had found his first wife.  Much to his consternation, Adama isnít at all as thrilled with the prospect as he is.  It seems the Tiger now has a she cat to tame, and tame her he will.

I love finding and reading new authors.  With The Tiger, Camryn Cutler has penned a novel of exquisite passion and poignant emotions.  While some scenes in the book are not for the faint of heart, the tale would not be the same without them.  The Tiger takes place in the desert and as such, the reader is fully immersed in a story of one man and the woman he loves.  A man that demands respect and complete obedience.  A man that a woman would follow into death if asked.  It is also the story of one womanís strength and love for such a man.     

Not sure what I would find within the pages of this book, I can honestly say that I hated to see The Tiger come to a close.   Thank goodness there is to be a continuation of Adamaís story in a second book, one that I suddenly find myself craving above all others.   For a first publication, Camryn Cutler has penned an outstanding novel in The Tiger and I want to be the first to admit that I HAVE to read the next installment.
