"When the Dord Fiann—the hunting horn of Ireland's Fianna warriors—sounds three times, the great chieftain will rise again and fight old enemies who have returned." —Maeve McKinley, Sovereign, Bloodlong.

Moira McKinley is Queen of Organized Chaos. She's surrogate mother to her eleven orphaned sisters, eats cereal for dinner, and grows window box herbs with a green thumb. In other words, she lives a pretty normal life. That is until she receives news that challenges everything she holds dear…

It isn't every day an Irish solicitor shows up on your suburban New York doorstep telling you your eighty-five-year-old granny has gone missing. And stranger still, reveals that the woman who has nurtured you for the last ten years isn't the soul you thought she was, but rather is some ancient guardian descended of the gods and whose first duty is not to her human bloodline but to a clan of immortal warriors tasked with saving the world.

That and the fact the gates of the Celtic Otherworld-Mag Mell-have just crashed, unleashing the vilest of Fae demons. And as an extra kicker, just in case all that other stuff isn't enough to cozy your brain up to, you and your sisters aren't really as batcrazy as you always thought. Those little habits you shucked up to nuisance, like waking up in the middle of the night wrapped in thorny briars…while still in your bed…are all par for the course when you're made up of stuff that feeds the dark side.

Stuff those Fae demons are on the hunt after.

Stuff those immortal warriors are determined to protect.

Stuff you might all end up dead over.

Stuff only missing granny holds the key to…

A dragon with a fear of flying...

 

Killian Brennan is a dragon with a problem. Since having helped the Tuatha Dé defeat the Fomori—the Celtic gods of Chaos— he’s been working for the Irish war goddess Macha—currently known as Maeve McKinley, Queen of Bloodlong. And while he’s a fierce Fianna warrior who will stop at nothing to defend his queen, his brothers-at-arms, and Ireland in general, he does have one weakness. He hasn’t been able to fly in centuries. Now the demons he helped lock up have escaped their prison and they’re coming for Killian and the rest of the Fianna who selflessly aided the Fae. But rather than call out Killian, the Fomori are gunning for something far more valuable to this vampire dragon than merely his wings. They’re aiming straight for his heart—for the one woman who can heal his misery.

 

Falls for a witch who can’t keep her feet on the ground…

 

Bridget McKinley is accustomed to waking in the middle of the night, her long hair plaited tight against her face, blinding her vision and suffocating her breath. But what’s a witch to do when the one soul who can help her master her magick—her grandmother, Maeve—has gone missing? Land her ass on the tiny autonomous island kingdom of Bloodlong, that’s what. At least there she has her two kooky aunts—both war goddesses in their own right—her eleven sisters, and a clan of immortal Fianna warriors who are also vampires. But when her unruly hair starts acting out of character and taking her on nighttime flights above the trees, she stumbles on a dragon with a secret even darker—and more dangerous—than her own.

 

And with the storm of Celtic demons closing in, Bridget and Killian soon find themselves TANGLED in magick so deep, it may very well kill them both.

 

 

 SEBASTIAN is the first book in National Bestselling Author Angelique Armae’s Immortal Valentine series, a spin-off from The Paradisian Chronicles. The Valentine brothers are Hell's sexiest bad boys. They're also Lucifer's most defiant nephews, working for Paradise and protecting mankind. They're half-fallen angel, half-mortal, save for Sebastian who is a triplicate soul. He's one-third vampire. He's also a rebel and fights Hell's dope dealers daily, trying to destroy their lethal narcotics trade, specifically the flow of Crypt Candy on earth.

Sophie Gates isn’t your average Criminal Profiler.  She’s a Paradisian Scholar—an immortal human trained in the ways of Heaven and Hell. She’s also a member of the archangel Gabriel’s Gothic Garrison.  So when a fellow Scholar turns up dead of a supernatural drug overdose, Sophie is called in to investigate the crime.  She believes the killer to be a Diabolus Sacratus--a revered demonic drug lord specializing in Crypt Candy, a highly addictive, and sometimes lethal, hallucinogenic distributed among Lucifer’s army. 

To proceed with her analysis and help track down the murderer, Sophie is forced to work with the sexy-as-sin Sebastian Valentine, a Nephilim vampire with a stake in eNVee Laboratories. As the pharmaceutical company catering to paranormal clientele this side of Heaven and Hell, eNVee Labs is the only company on Earth capable of manufacturing Crypt Candy.  Unfortunately, the main component of the drug is a residual substance found in coffins and crypts inhabited by Nephilim vampires. With evidence building against her newly assigned partner, Sophie is quick to make Sebastian Valentine her number one suspect.  If only she didn’t find the man as addictive as the drug he’s capable of manufacturing…

Born to a fallen angel and a mortal mother, Sebastian Valentine is a prince of Hell. As a defrocked Templar, he escaped execution thanks to a Vampiric relative, and now exists as a Triplicate soul—angel, human and vampire. His hopes of redemption are slim.  The only way to save him from eternal damnation is to find the one woman, deemed by fate, to be his life mate.  To do so, he’d have to convince her to share his Hellish soul.  And that’s one sacrifice, he’s certain, no sane person would dare make. 

Paying back a debt owed to the archangel Gabriel, Sebastian joins forces with Sophie to hunt down a demonic killer.   But to find this unholy criminal, Sebastian will have to reveal secrets of Sophie’s past she’s not aware of, a dark legacy that will put her next on the hit list of the Diabolus Sacratus they’re hunting…

 

SHADOWS OF THE SOUL is the first book in National Bestselling Author Angelique Armae’s bestselling angels and demons series, The Paradisian Chronicles.

When Hell's sexiest bad boy—Nicolai Valentine—defied Lucifer, he lost everything.

Now Heaven's fearless human warrior—Isabel Heart—has come to Nicolai's aid.

When the two meet...

A haunting past is reborn...

Isabel Godfroie Heart is a Paradisian Scholar—an immortal human trained in the ways of Heaven and Hell—who's suffering from memory loss. During her last battle, a dark force erased specific portions of her past life memories. Now she remembers little of times past, save for the fact she's a demon slayer mentored by the archangel Gabriel. When ordered to a new post to help translate a volume of ancient text from a forbidden verse, Isabel is forced to work with the dark prince Nicolai Valentine, a soul who may or may not be responsible for her memory loss. If only she didn't find the tempting creature so hard to resist...

Born to a fallen angel and a mortal mother, Nicolai Valentine is a prince of the Grigorcov, the children of the fallen sons of God. Searching for the lost chalice that will save his kin from eternal damnation, Nicky unknowingly unleashes the Hadean Virus, a dark entity targeting members of the Grigorcov. Now the entity has been unleashed on man's world and Nicky's in a race against time to find the antidote that will stop this deadly parasite. But in order to keep the Hadean virus from attacking again, Nicolai must enlist the help of Isabel Godfroie Heart, the Paradisian Scholar he was unable to save from the wrath of Hell centuries ago...
