The Dragon of New Orleans (The Treasure of Paragon Book 1)

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

For 300 years, Gabriel Blakemore has survived hidden among humans after a coup in his native realm of Paragon scattered him and his siblings across the globe. Keeping his secret has preserved his dragon magic but led to a life devoid of true intimacy. 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.

Death is a welcome end for Raven Tanglewood. After five years of unsuccessful treatment for her brain cancer, her illness has become a prison, something her adventurous spirit cannot abide.

When Gabriel heals Raven and binds her to him, he awakens a connection stronger than any he’s ever known. But she sees the bond as another kind of captivity. Can Gabriel win her 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?

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

When I saw this book, I was curious for a couple of reasons.  The first is I wanted to read a book from this author and jumping into series that are already out plus a few deep is hard to do.  The other reason is HELLO SHIFTERS…..HELLO DRAGON SHIFTERS.  To be honest, I have only read one other series about dragons.  I loved the direction/spin she took with her series because it was very different from what I expected.

I will say the world building was slow and a time or two I was a little confused BUT stick with the story because after a while I couldn’t put the book down.  I was dying to know about Raven and her dragon Gabriel.  My favorite scene is when Gabriel admits how crazy he is for Raven…..this woman brought a powerful dragon to his knees…..sigh……..

The angst between the characters builds and it BURNS people…sooo burns!!!  I was so ready, much like Raven, for when they did some “How you doing “ time *Wink wink*  Their love story was very sweet and I enjoyed watching them fall for each other while also trying to protect the other.

The curse and the family fall out Gabriel has to over come was crazy intense.  Poor guy has a crazy woman and crazy uncle after him!!  I mean he can’t live anywhere without having threats to his life!

I am so looking forward to the next book and hanging with Gabriel and Raven again.  I am sure Gabriel will be just as possessive over Raven with his brother which is hilarious BUT also trying to find their siblings will be good reads.   I wonder how the family will react to the everything Gabriel has to warn them about in regards to their family!!

#WOTR18 – #Review – The Ghost and the Graveyard (Knight Games #1) by Genevieve Jack

The Ghost and the Graveyard (Knight Games, #1)

 

**The Ghost and The Graveyard is a funny, exciting, and sexy read intended for adults. Due to sexual content, language, and violence this book is recommended for ages 18+**

Grateful Knight isn’t looking for love when she moves into a rent-free house on the edge of a graveyard. At twenty-two, all she wants is to recover financially so she can move back to the city where she belongs.

But sparks fly when the gorgeous cemetery caretaker, Rick, introduces himself and mentions his suspicion that her new house might be haunted. Her attraction to him seems supernatural, and despite her resolve to not get involved, she literally can’t keep her hands off him.

When things in Grateful’s house start moving on their own, another man enters her life, Logan, a sexy ghost with a dark secret. He says Rick isn’t what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul.

One thing’s for sure, magical forces are at work in the tiny town of Red Grove, and they’re converging on Grateful. Life will never be the same once she’s forced to choose between the ghost and the graveyard.

The ghost or the graveyard….make a choice….what?! So I am not gonna lie. I picked this book up solely because of it’s cover. What can I say, it just yelled “read me!”. So, without reading the synopsis I jumped right in. Grateful is our main character. Like most/some women at 22 years old she had her run in with some not so great relationships. The last one has done her in. To get out of financial debt she moves to this little town and is going to stay in the house behind the graveyard until her father is able to sell it. As she stays in the house she finds herself smitten with the caretaker of the graveyard but then also has a ghostly friend in her home as well. As she is forming friendships with these two she is faced with a truth that blows her mind. I actually never saw this twist coming and bravo to the author as I was completely surprised by the twist. As Grateful is trying to get her life figured out a past life is constantly throwing curve balls her way. There are many supernatural creatures in this story and one in particular I am super excited for you to meet. I under no circumstances want to give the story away but it is sooooo much more than the synopsis. It is super witty, lots of sass, and some hawtness!!! As I was reading I could picture the house in my mind, I could picture the graveyard, and best of all I could picture all of the facial expressions Grateful was giving everyone!
