The Tiger's Curse Series (formerly known as the Tiger Saga) is the young adult romance series by Colleen Houck. This five-part series was originally an eBook. The first published copy of Tiger's Curse was released in January 2011. The saga follows the adventure of the young woman Kelsey Hayes as she travels across India in order to break an ancient curse placed upon Ren and Kishan, two princes who have been transformed into tigers. Along the way, the three must face many obstacles and challenges whilst battling Lokesh, the evil wizard that cursed the two men. As the story progresses, a love triangle forms. Who will Kelsey choose? And will they ever lift the curse?
The last thing Kelsey Hayes thought she'd be doing this summer was trying to break a 300-year-old Indian curse with a mysterious white tiger named Ren halfway around the world. But that's exactly what happened. Face-to-face with dark forces, spell-binding magic, and mystical worlds where nothing is as it seems, Kelsey risks everything to piece together an ancient prophecy that could break the curse forever.
Kelsey Hayes' eighteenth summer was crazy; the kind of crazy that nobody would believe. Aside from battling immortal sea monkeys and trekking the jungles of India, she fell in love with Ren, a 300-year-old prince. When danger suddenly forces Kelsey on another Indian quest with Ren's bad-boy brother Kishan, the unlikely duo begins to question their true destiny. Ren's life hangs in the balance--and so does Kelsey's heart.
Five mythical Chinese dragons and the open sea beckon nineteen-year-old Kelsey, who must embark on a third voyage--this time to find the goddess Durga's Black Pearl Necklace and free her beloved Ren from both the tiger's curse and his sudden amnesia. Ren's bad-boy brother Kishan, however, has other plans, as the two vie for her affections as they all try to outsmart those bent on hindering their plans.
With three of the goddess Durga's quests behind them, only one prophecy now stands in the way of Ren and Kishan breaking the tiger's curse. But the trio's greatest challenge awaits them: A life-endangering pursuit in search of Durga's final gift, the Rope of Fire, on the Andaman Islands in the Bay of Bengal. It's a race against time - and the evil sorcerer Lokesh - in this eagerly anticipated fourth volume in the bestselling Tiger's Curse series, which puts good against evil, tests the bonds of love and loyalty, and finally reveals the tiger's true destiny once and for all.
The fifth and final book in the series was planned for release in 2014. However, the author has put this book on hold in favor of other projects.
A prequel to the bestselling Tiger's Curse series, this much anticipated novella recalls the beginning of Ren and Kishan's story. Before Kelsey there was a girl, raised by a villain, whose love for a hero changed the course of history. Trapped under the thumb of her abusive and powerful father Lokesh, Yesubai struggles to keep her own magical abilities secret while evading his dark powers. When Lokesh promises Yesubai to the prince of a neighboring kingdom, she becomes the central pawn in his plot to destroy the ruling family and take power for himself. Yesubai is trapped by her father's threats and desperate to protect the man she comes to love, but she knows that any decision she makes will have dire consequences. As dark forces gather around her, Yesubai must decide if she's willing to reveal that somewhere deep within her she has the power to change everything.
A determined and brave teenager, Kelsey falls in love with Ren, the tiger who turns into a Indian prince, as they try to unlock the curse that bounds him to his tiger form. Over the series, they fall in love and she discovers that his brother, Kishan, also loves her. She helps Kishan look for Ren and unlock the curse when Ren is kidnapped, and is heartbroken when she discovers that Lokesh has erased Ren's memory of her. She and Ren get married in the fourth novel and move in together to their home in Salem, Oregon.
A handsome and sweet Indian prince, Ren was cursed by Lokesh 300 years ago. He turns into a white tiger and is only human for 24 minutes every 24 hours, before the curse is extended. He falls in love with Kelsey, and later waits for her when she moves back to Oregon. He wasn't able to stand it anymore being apart from her. He was captured and tortured by Lokesh, and lost his memory of Kelsey. Will he get it back?
Ren's equally handsome brother, Kishan often gets in trouble with his cocky and sarcastic attitude, especially when he flirts with Kelsey. He was also cursed to turn into a black tiger, and punished himself by keeping himself as a tiger since he stole YesubaifromRen. He later falls in love with Kelsey.
