About this ebook

A cursed dragon shifter, a terminal cancer patient, and a forbidden love that promises to save them both... if they don't kill each other first.


— 2020 Independent Publisher Book Award for BEST ROMANCE E-BOOK

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?

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.

This is my first book by this author. It was well written and kept my attention well into the late hours. If you like shifter and magic this is one not to miss. Even if you are not there is mystery, intrigue and romance. Tho stand alone it is entwined with the rest of the series. Looking forward to reading the rest and if I can find them the tanglewood books as well. Ty Genevieve Jacks for an enjoyable read.

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.

About the author

 USA Today bestselling author Genevieve Jack writes weird, witty, and wicked-hot paranormal romance and fantasy. Coffee and wine are her biofuel, the love lives of witches, shifters, and vampires her favorite topic of conversation. She harbors a passion for old cemeteries and ghost tours, thanks to her years at a high school rumored to be haunted. Although she calls the Midwest home, her heart belongs to the beaches of the Southeast, where she spends her days with her laptop and one lazy dog.
