"An impressive mix of Greek mythology, Vodoun rituals, and the distinctive mystique of New Orleans, past and present. It's a compelling start to what seems destined to be an entertaining series." - InD'tale Crowned Heart review

From USA Today Bestselling Author Genevieve Jack

New Orleans: city of intrigue, supernatural secrets, and one enigmatic dragon. 

A deadly curse....
For 300 years, Gabriel Blakemore has survived in New Orleans after a coup in his native realm of Paragon scattered him and his dragon siblings across the globe. Now a voodoo curse threatens to end his immortal existence. His only hope is to find an antidote, one that may rest in a mortal woman.

A lifesaving gift...
After five years of unsuccessful treatment for her brain cancer, death is a welcome end for Raven Tanglewood. Her illness has become a prison her adventurous spirit cannot abide. Salvation comes in the form of Gabriel, who uses dragon magic to save her.

A harrowing price...
To Raven, the bond that results from Gabriel's gift is another kind of captivity. Can Gabriel win Raven's love and trust in time to awaken the life-saving magic within her? Or will his fiery personality and possessive ways drive her from his side and seal his fate?

"The romance burns slowly, and the suspense will keep you glued to the pages" -Uncaged Reviews ⭑⭑⭑⭑⭑

This was a great read. The cover was what did it for me and caught my attention. I love anything with dragons,their one of my favorite shifters. The writer wrote a great tale and over all I loved the main characters. Gabriel is a dragon who was cursed by a dark witch who he had the hots for him,but who he wanted nothing to do with. So she cursed him,if he can't find a way to break the spell he will turn to stone by mardi gras. So he has been searching for someone with magic to help him. Raven has cancer and she is in the hospital close to dying when gabriel appears making a bargain with her. If he saves her she must help him,she agree's and her feeds her one of his teeth and the Dragon magic cure's her cancer. Raven has no idea that she has powers,but with gabriels magic it awakens. Their Was a great chemistry between raven and gabriel,I just wished he was more alpha and less broody. I like my dragons with a edge of bad boy and dominanting and take charge kind of attitude.But I think his brother tobias might be more my kind of dragon,he was very intriguing! This book was somewhat steamy,but for a dragon shifter it was on the mild side. I will definitely check out Windy City Dragon which is Tobia's book.

Not every shifter’s book is a fantasy. Dragon lore is a favorite and this did not disappoint. The land of dragons with a huge teeth-clenching storyline. Will evil win? Will love survive. Romance that makes the heart soar. Worth every word!

I love this book. I only wish it was longer! The author gives us the story of a Dragon and seven of his siblings who have been cast from their home and forced to separate. Dragon??? Sign me up. She had me at Dragon. Gabriel is sexy and charming and, of course, lumbering under a curse that just might end his life. And he is running out of time. Enter our heroine, Raven, who knows what it is to live under a death sentence. She is delightfully brave, curious as a damned cat, and has a bonafide talent for attracting trouble. She also has other talents that DO come in handy in this story, if she could only just get a handle on them. The world building and all the side characters kept me turning pages as much as the romance between these two main characters. Ms. Jack delivers a well written, well structured, well paced read and sets the stage for the books to come. I can't wait to get my hands on The Windy City Dragon up next. If you are fans of Kresely Cole, Sherrilyn Kenyon, or Jennifer Blake and are between books, you really need to check out these Dragon books. Start with this one, The Dragon of New Orleans!

I enjoyed this book for everything that it was. The author did a good job of pulling me in and making me care for the characters. Made me feel like I was in the moment with Gabriel and Raven. That being said, this book was not nearly as long as it should have been. I feel like only the surface layer was scratched for Gabriel & Raven. I feel short changed in their story. I crave more of Gabriel and i want to learn more about Ravens gift. Let me at that Library! The intimate situations in this story left much to be desired. They are not necessary but are nice to get. I would be more than happy to wait longer and pay more for a longer book. I dont feel like a little over 250 pages was nearly enough.

This is the first book in a series and the first book I've read by Genevieve Jack. I love dragon shifter books, and this is a great entry into that particular sub-genre. This was a really good, entertaining, edge of your seat read. I really liked Gabriel and Raven. I loved seeing them interact with each other, and seeing Raven learn about her bloodline. I was in her corner the entire time. There was also a cool plot twist I wasn't really expecting, but that just mad the book all the more enjoyable. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.

So this is the story of Gabriel and Raven and what a fabulous and addictive ride this was. So first Gabriel's ring has been cursed by a local voodoo Queen who wants his power to aide in her own immortality. Gabriel a long-lived dragon who also walks in human form needs his ring to stay on earth if he doesn't find a cure or return to his homeland Paragon he will turn to stone. After locating Raven in a human hospital and sensing her psychic abilities he offers her a choice he will cure her cancer if she comes to work for him breaking his curse. So I adored that this was set in New Orleans and that Gabriel had an antique shop: very fitting indeed. The opening scenes here with Raven's illness and suffering as she slowly dies from a brain tumour seemed believable and authentic. I felt her internal struggle and also her final acceptance of her nearing fate that is until an additional fantastical option is brought to the table that could potentially save her life. This was for me such an easy addictive read that I was instantly invested in almost from the first page. The connection between Raven and Gabriel here for me blazed so brightly and I felt it from the instant they first connected. This also had a fantastic underlying story and the setup here for progression was great really paving the way for future books: I for one can't wait to read the rest of this imaginative series. This was a book I read in one sitting so that says it all really: this is rich in magic, legend and love so if you like your paranormal then this one I highly recommend. I voluntary reviewed a copy of The Dragon of New Orleans (The Treasure of Paragon Book 1). All opinions expressed are entirely my own.

A dragon and a curse in colorful New Orleans. Did I mention a dragon? This first book in the series is packed full of supernatural creatures, romance, suspense, adventure, and magic. The story is well-written and pulled me in from the very beginning. Raven and Gabriel were both terrific characters and so much fun to read. Raven is such a strong woman even when she doesn't realize it, and she and Gabriel are just so good together. This story is completely engaging, and I can't wait to see what's next in the captivating world the author has created.

What a fabulous start to this new series! Raven is a great heroine; tough, plucky, funny, and brave. Her voice is so strong, right from the first page, that you root for her immediately. Gabriel is a grouchy, heart-stoppingly hot hero, and his transformation from gruff, secretive loner to protective partner is a delight to read. Even if you don't usually read paranormal romance, I highly recommend you give this one a try. You'll be hooked! Bravo, Ms. Jack!

Beautifully written, compelling, and (pardon the pun) spell-binding! A good writer draws you in to the story by the end of the first few pages. A great writer draws you in from the very first paragraph; and Genevieve Jack has done just that. This is one of those books I just couldn’t put down, and I don’t even read this genre very often. I fell in love with Gabriel and Raven immediately. It is more than a story about dragons and witches; much more. Action-packed, intriguing, and exciting, The Dragon of New Orleans will take you through a roller coaster of emotions and keep you on the edge of your seat. Genevieve Jack has done more than just create a world of dragons and witches; she’s written it in a way that will leave you breathless and in awe. I am eagerly awaiting the next book in this series.

Genevieve Jack has done it again. Readers will be sucked in from the first paragraph and find it difficult to put this book down. GJ is fantastic at world-building, and her creative mind is nothing short of brilliant. This series is going to take the PNR world by storm. I'm eagerly awaiting the rest of The Treasure of Paragon books.
