"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…

Angelique Armae
 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…

But when she stumbles right into his welcome gathering, Gina has a feeling her carefree days of painting at the medieval-styled castle are over...

After a falling out with his band, Dante Riani wants nothing more than solitude to work on new songs. But when a shy young painter asks to paint him at sunset, he's tempted by the opportunity.

He must keep his distance, but something about her is too difficult to resist.

And a threat might unveil his dark secret...



PRAISE FOR CHATEAU SEDUCTIONS

Dark Velvet

"Looking for a sexy vampire novel? If so, then this is definitely a must buy!"

"...insanely hot chemistry between the female protagonist Savannah & vampire Antoine. Their intensity starts off right away and you're not a chapter in before it takes off like a rocket." ~ Paranormal Romance Junkies

"While it is a story about struggle, it is also about love; and doing whatever needs to be done to be with the one you are attracted to. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Gina and Dante. This story has the perfect amount of witty banter, sex, and romance." ~ Books and Beyond Fifty Shades


Dark Muse

"Gina and Dante had chemistry galore! I liked that we get to be there for their first entertaining meeting and then watch their flirty attraction take off. It's a fast-paced tale and their relationship goes from sweet to very hot quickly! Dark Muse is not just a romantic tale. In addition to Gina's and Dante's love story, the island, itself, is not without danger." ~ Reading Between the Wines

"A wonderful continuation of the Chateau Seduction Series. Involves the previous characters, but definitely a stand alone book as well. I love the new (to me) aspect of the paranormal. I often find hot sex scenes are put in merely to enhance the scene, but in these books the romance and sex intertwine and fit perfectly into the story." ~ Long and Short Reviews
