Rating: 4 out of 5.

(The Treasure of Paragon Book 1)

A cursed dragon shifter, a terminal cancer patient, and a magical bond that promises to save them both… if they don’t kill each other first.

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 jealous suitor’s 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?

My Review

This book is a paranormal romance with tidbits of fantasy thrown in. It is full of action, adventure, and steamy scenes that will make you fall in love with dragons and witches. The story itself is riddled with danger and issues and a fabulous heroine. This book is the first in a series, each expanding on continuing the problems and adding characters.

Gabriel is an immortal dragon; he lives in New Orleans. He was recently cursed by a voodoo priestess and is now looking for a cure.

Ravenna has brain cancer. She is ready for death, and her body fails her. She gets a supernatural visitor. Who gives her a strange gift and miraculous healing.

This book then jumps forward by four months she is still recovering. As her body was weak from the attack of cancer. She and her sister Avery are making up for the lost time. Things reveal themselves, and we have more questions than answers. Also, unique talents come to light but aren’t explained.

We jump back in time to get more depth into our supernatural characters and the Tanglewood family history. This book gets steamy and more fantasy-themed as the real problems arise. We also get a lot of answers about Raven, and I love that they mated.

I enjoyed the fantasy parts of the story, but I truly enjoyed it when she came back and kicked some Voodoo witch butt; that was fantastic. The ending of this story is okay and leads you into the next book in this tale.
