Aimee Horner's dreams have been getting worse over the last few months, which is good for her job as a graphic novel illustrator. But bad for her in general, especially when a friend convinces her to go to the carnival that has just arrived in town. Seeing a gorgeous carousel while there, she can't help but touch one of the animals -- a white tiger -- that is a part of it. But what happens when she does drags her into the very world she's been dreaming about.

In a desperate attempt to save her warriors from the horrors of hell, the Lady of the Beasts imprisoned Roric and his fellow warriors in their animal forms on a carousel. For their imprisonment to be lifted, a simple touch by their destined mate is required which puts not only Roric, but also the woman who awakens him, in danger.

Night of the Tiger is the first book in a new series for this wonderful author and what an incredible start it was. The plot was enjoyable and the way the book starts with a prologue of the Lady of the Beasts captivity by the very powerful demon Hades, and his plan to release her warriors from their imprisonment so he can use them for his own personal gain, was outstanding. I learned about the devious ways of demons and the lengths they'll go to to be Hell's Ruler. As for the dialogue, it showed how strong both characters were and that they were both survivors no matter what was happening in their lives. The sex scenes were hot and just right where they were in the story, especially considering neither the hero nor heroine knew what would happen to either one of them when the demons came. What I liked so much about the heroine was her strength and that she was willing to stand by Roric's side, even though he was likely to betray her if it meant helping his goddess. While with Roric, I enjoyed the fact he was willing to go against those he thought were on his side to protect Aimee. After all, she certainly had earned his devotion with the way she helped him when trouble arose.

Overall, this author has once again proven what a great author she is. I recommend this book to fans of the genre and I can't wait to see what is in store for the warriors that are still imprisoned on the carousel.
