Description: 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.

Overall thoughts: I am a huge fan of paranormal romance and anything that deals with mythic creatures, ESPECIALLY dragons. So when I saw the blurb for The Dragon of New Orleans I was immediately intrigued/wanted to read it and I was NOT disappointed! The Dragon of New Orleans tells the story of Gabriel, a paranormal being who was cursed by a voodoo Queen to do his bidding. Oh and if you haven’t already realized by the title…he’s also a dragon. Enter the heroine of this book Raven, a woman who sadly has cancer and has strong physic abilities. What a combo right?
Gabriel finds and senses Raven and offers to help her with her cancer if she comes and works for him. They come together to help solve each other’s problems and I was immediately enthralled with their story and intensity for one another from start to finish. Gabriel and Raven’s chemistry crackles right off the pages and straight into your heart, they are definitely one of those couples that I adore to read about. The story, the settling and backstory of being New Orleans plus the love that Gabriel and Raven have for one another really made me enjoy this book and I’m so excited for the rest of the series!
