For Rowan Valor, faking her own death is a regular necessity. How else would an immortal dragon manage to live in a place like Manhattan for close to three hundred years? But changing her identity leaves the community center she founded vulnerable, and for the sake of the children, she must find a way to undo the damage.
He’s leading a new life.
Human detective Nick Grandstaff entered law enforcement to escape his violent roots. But closing the door on his past has resulted in an unnatural obsession with his work. Perhaps it’s for the best that his longest relationship has been with his dog. What woman would choose to be with someone with such a dark and tangled history?
To have a future together, both must face their past.
When Nick investigates a case that leads him to Rowan’s door, their passionate connection promises to heal old wounds and grant them both the once-in-a-lifetime love they deserve. But fighting a common enemy entangles them in the dangerous supernatural underworld of Manhattan where power is shifting, and unbeknownst to Rowan, a former ally has become a deadly enemy.
This is the third book in the Treasure of Paragon series by Genevieve Jack.
This book did not disappoint. The story just keeps getting better and more intriguing as we go along. I am hoping since there are eight siblings we will get eight books. Crossing fingers!
Basic premise: When you are a dragon who lives forever, it makes sense that you have to reinvent yourself time after time in order to not seem so obviously like an immortal being. Rowen has just faked her own death just as her brothers are looking for her. She is in danger from more than one direction. Then Detective Nick Grandstaff stumbles over her while investigating a case. The two are drawn together by an other worldly bond. But the closer they get to knowing each other, the closer the enemy comes to finding them.
I like that in these books that we get to still see other characters like Rowen's brothers and their wives from the previous books. Not sure how likely that will be when we get farther into the series. But for now I love that family connection. They each work to their own strengths and that makes this story all the more awesome.
Even though book one is my favorite "love story" this one really stands up to that one as a close second. I seem to really resonate with the stories with the handsome detectives.
This is definitely a series you will want to dive into if you love contemporary paranormal romances. You won't regret giving it a try!
