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?
"I loved this steamy, fast paced paranormal romance. I need a dragon of my very own." Kim Loraine, Best Selling Author of The Fallen Angel Trilogy
"Reading Dragon of New Orleans made me feel right at home in my adopted city, and I can't wait for the next one. This is a fantastic start of a new urban fantasy series." Deanna Chase, NYT Bestselling author
In the heady first Treasure of Paragon novel from Jack (the Knight Games series), an evil voodoo priestess curses Gabriel, an immortal dragon, and the only one who can save him is Raven, a human woman. When Gabriel appears in Raven's hospital room, she mistakes him for the avatar of death. Then he cures her cancer and bonds her to him for life. Shocked to find out he's a dragon, she reluctantly starts researching how to break the curse. She's initially afraid of his possessiveness, but quickly falls for him. As she learns about magic powers and paranormal entities, she realizes she absorbs any magic she touches. They begin to hope she'll find a way around the curse by developing this gift, which she didn't know she had and Gabriel suspects she's his fated mate as well. Although the possessive dragon nature will be too much for some, fans of paranormal romance will get swept up in this quick, steamy romance and the intriguing mystery wrapped in magic. (BookLife)

I pre-ordered this book based on some ads on Facebook and it did not disappoint!
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.
This was a great read. I loved the theme and saving the heroine how she was saved makes me want to believe magic could work like that too!
