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…

Books 1-5 in National Bestselling Author Angelique Armae's Bestselling Shifters of Dundaire Series.
Welcome to Dundaire, Scotland, a magickal city that doesn't appear on any map, where kilt-wearing, immortal Highlanders are plentiful, and where romance and danger brew daily...
DARK WOLF 1 - When Highland wolf Callen MacHendrie catches intern Miranda Kendrick stealing his prized sword, the term wild romp takes on a whole new meaning.
CHRISTMAS WOLF 2 - When Highland wolf Rhys MacGregor goes in search of the perfect tree-topper for Wolfsden Keep's eighteen-foot-tall tree for the pack's Christmas Eve ball, he ends up rescuing a cat who turns out to be more than he ever imagined.
VIKING WOLF 3 - A beautiful sin-eater falls for an immortal Viking cursed with a beastly wolf entombed in his heart... Leila MacHendrie has always dreamt of finding the perfect fairytale hero. Which in her case means a guy who doesn't attract curses, dark auras or the worst the full moon has to offer.
Then she met the immortal Vidar von Hess. A man who is everything Leila doesn't want.
For starters, he's a Viking, not a Scot.
He doesn't wear a kilt, detests them to the point of calling them skirts.
And he's an immortal wolf, when all she desires is your very-mortal-guy-next-door type.
Plus, there's that little matter of the aura that keeps pulling from Vidar's body, tempting the sin-eater in her soul. Being a living, breathing Pandora's box isn't easy. Especially when that box contains the key to thawing Vidar's frozen heart.
But breaking the man's curse means unleashing a centuries-old evil capable of killing them both. And being the untrained sin-eater that she is, Leila knows this is one love match that just might spell disaster for all involved.
Too bad she finds the tempting Vidar so irresistibly sexy.
HIGHLAND WOLF 4 - Bane MacHendrie is Scotland's most powerful alpha. He's also the Highland's most selfless wolf, having spent a thousand years sacrificing his own needs for the sake of his pack, his sons, and the goddess who owns his heart. But when an old enemy rises from the dead and challenges Bane for the woman they once both fought over, Bane must choose between love and honor. And being the noble beast that he is, his heart might just lose out for all eternity…
RETURN OF THE WOLF 5 - For 500 years, Conall MacHendrie has lived as a ghost.
To regain his body, all he has to do is forgive a witch of the debt she owes him.
Too bad time hasn’t lessened his desire to collect that one night of passion with her.
Warning: Contains a happy-go-lucky castle, a sexy Highland immortal who can’t keep his kilt on, and a feisty witch who’s the perfect match for Dundaire’s scorching hot Scot.
