After months of no work, interdimensional bounty hunter Ronin Meyers jumps at the chance to locate an incubus who’s using succubi as murder weapons. Faced with deportation to hellish Infernum if he fails, Ronin will stop at nothing to take out the incubus and anyone else involved. Even the beautiful succubus who stole his heart—and nearly his life—during the most mind-blowing hour of his existence.
Night after night, Amara and her fellow succubi are forced to extract special abilities from the strongest Otherworlders for their psychotic master’s growing collection. When the gorgeous angel-demon hybrid she believed to be dead captures her, Amara is both stunned and elated.
But the happily-ever-after Amara’s dreamed about will have to wait. Before she and Ronin can find salvation, they must bring down the madman hell-bent on destroying everything—and everyone—they love. And Ronin and Amara are at the top of his list.

If you were to describe your e-book/book in only one word, what would it be?
What would you say inspired you to write it?
I came up with the plot for this series after a dream I had which featured a half-demon hero and his psychometric love interest. This became the plot for Keegan and Brynn’s story in Blood of the Demon (Demons of Infernum #1). Once I wrote Keegan’s brothers, I knew they’d need to have their own stories, with their own happily ever afters!
Your all time favorite book?
It’s so hard to pick just one, but right now I’m thinking it would be Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling. The book is just packed with amazing scenes, and I love the storyline involving the mermaids. I desperately want to write a mermaid tale of my own.
What made you pick that one above all others?
It’s been on my mind lately. I think it’s about time for another re-read!
What’s the longest time you’ve spent working on a project?
Blood of the Demon took me a year, on and off. The first draft was completely different from how it finally turned out. The only things left were the names of the main characters and the fact that demons were involved!
Would you say becoming an author has changed you? In what way?
Being an author has been a dream come true, and it’s given me the confidence to bring to life the stories I’ve always had streaming in my mind.
Was there ever a time, during your work for the e-book/book, when you felt like giving up? What made you change your mind?
Always right around the middle of the story, lol. It’s really hard to write a complete novel! I force myself to push through the slump, knowing the story needs to be told, and that it will kick ass in the end. 😉
What does your day-to-day life consist of? What else do you do, aside writing?
I also teach business law courses on a university level, so my day often consists of school work followed up by an hour or two of writing (hopefully), and then some more writing at night after my children have gone to bed.
How do you deal with bad reviews or acid criticism? What would you advise other authors to that effect?
I try not to read bad reviews. They have too much of an effect on me, and ultimately I’ve found them to be detrimental to my writing process. I try to remind myself that no story is going to be universally loved. I write for a very specific audience, and as long as they like me stories, I’m happy!
Is this title part of a series?
Without giving us spoilers, of course, what can we expect from the next e-books/books in the series? This is book 3 in my Demons of Infernum series. Next up, on December 30th, is Heart of the Incubus, a novella based in the Demons of Infernum world. Here’s the blurb:
Biochemist Cresso Taylor lives the sort of lifestyle most men would envy—he has wealth, natural incubus charm, and more women than he can handle. But it’s not enough anymore. Not after meeting Genevieve Russell, the sexy scientist who works with him at Elcorp Laboratory. And she wants absolutely nothing to do with him.
After her fiancé broke her heart, Genevieve has had enough of womanizers. She’s determined to steer clear of sexy-as-sin Dr. Taylor, despite the fact that his incubus allure makes her want to rip his clothes off. But when a secret admirer’s affection turns to the macabre with threatening notes and grisly gifts, Cresso appoints himself her protector. As she and Cresso hunt her stalker, she discovers there’s a lot more to the sensual incubus than she ever imagined.
What do you have stored for us in the future? What are you working on/planning on next, aside this title/series?
You’ll see the end of this series in March 2014. Call of the Siren features the fourth and youngest brother, Dagan. He’ll finally get his own story.
If you could wish for any one thing, and it would immediately come true, what would you wish for?
For my next novel to be finished already. It’s taking longer than I’d hoped!
If you were stranded on an isolated island, what’s the one book you’d absolutely wish to have with you?
Either Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire or To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Marie Moning. What a great love story!
Name your favorite fruit.
I can’t get enough of fresh blackberries. Yum!
Coffee or tea?
Varies. I live in FL so the winter weather is definitely the most pleasant.
How about fav time of 24 hours?
Usually around 10 pm. Kids are in bed and I’m relaxing before bedtime.
Favorite food for breakfast?
Scrambled egg and Italian five-grain baguette.
Latest book you’ve bought and read?
Allure by Lea Nolan. It’s amazing! You all should read it!!
Favorite color, you know you want to tell us!
Burgundy. I love its depth and richness.
Drama or comedy?
Give me a comedy any day. Real life is drama enough!
Have a fav quote or personal motto?
Never give up!
Cats or dogs?
Uh, ferrets actually. Yeah…ferrets.
Dinner by candlelight or a night out clubbing?
Usually dinner. Clubbing maybe once a year. Man I’m getting old, lol.
About the Author & Links:
Rosalie Lario is the award-winning, paranormal romance author of the Demons of Infernum and the Fallen Warriors series. Rosalie double majored in Anthropology and Classics as an undergraduate student, and briefly considered becoming an archaeologist before realizing they don’t actually live the life of Indiana Jones. So what was a classical geek armed with a lot of useless knowledge to do? Become a lawyer, of course!
After attending law school in Florida, she practiced real estate law for several years before finally admitting to herself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. She never imagined all the mythology she’d learned throughout her undergraduate education might actually come in handy, but it makes perfect fodder for the paranormal romance stories she now dreams up.
When not writing, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two young children in their home state of Florida.
