Welcome Award-Winning Guest Author Rosalie Lario! #demons #yum

Welcome fellow Entangled author 
Rosalie Lario!
And congratulations on all your recent awards, particurlarly GraveTells Debut Author of the Year! Woot!

See below for a GIVEAWAY!

Welcome, Rosalie!  Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.

My name is Rosalie Lario and I’m the author of two different paranormal romance series: the award-winning Demons of Infernum series, featuring sibling, half demon bounty hunters; and The Fallen Warriors, featuring a band of fallen angels who seek to save humankind from eradication.

Aw, man, both sound awesome! I love series! Okay, tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.

Heart of the Incubus is a novella set in my Demons of Infernum world. It stars an incubus named Cresso, who works as a biochemist for a laboratory sponsored by the Elden Council (the council governing travel between dimensions). Cresso gets more than he bargains for when he falls for Genevieve, one of his coworkers. Not only can the woman not stand him, but she’s also being pursued by a stalker. When Cresso determines to find and stop the sadistic stalker, he never believes he’ll be able to convince Genevieve he’s worthy of her love. But as they work together to solve this mystery, Genevieve discovers there’s much more to the sexy incubus than she ever imagined.

Heart of the Incubus takes place after the events in Touch of the Angel, Book 3, of the Demons of Infernum series, but it can and does stand alone.

Book 1 in the Series!
Sounds great! Which character is your favorite and why?

It’s always so hard to pick a favorite character, but I admit to having a soft spot for Cresso. He first appears in Blood of the Demon as a friend of Taeg’s. I truly enjoyed witnessing the admitted playboy fall hard for Genevieve.

I love my heroes best, too! Cresso sounds delicious! Will there be any sequels or other books in the same series?

I’m currently hard at work on Call of the Siren, Book 4 in the Demons of Infernum series. It’s set to release in July or August of this year.

Wonderful! Good luck! So, what happened to the first book you ever wrote?

Oh wow. In a word, it sucked. I have it saved on my computer and I’ll probably pull it out one day for laughs. But as horrible as it was, the book was invaluable because it was one big step in the process of learning the craft.

Yes! That’s so true! What do you find easiest and hardest to write?

I think the love scenes are both the easiest and the hardest to write, LOL. It all depends on my mood when I’m writing. Sometimes I’m not feeling it but I have to muscle through it anyway; that’s hard. But then there are times when my fingers can’t move quickly enough; I love it when that happens!

So interesting how often love scenes appear here authors’ responses! *grins* Have you incorporated actual events or people from your own life into your books?

No, I haven’t. I guess I don’t know anyone that interesting!

LOL! Is there a theme or message that runs through your work?

If there were one overall theme to my books, it would be that love is all-powerful. I truly believe that, with love, we can accomplish anything.

Love that! What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?

I love the thought of the paranormal but I’m truly a wimp in real life. Horror movies scare me so badly that I usually can’t watch them, LOL.

That’s awesome, Rosalie! I like to think I’d be brave if I encountered a real spooky baddy! Which romance book or series (or other genre, if you don’t write romance) do you wish you had written?

I only wish I could write a stunning romance novel like To Tame a Highland Warrior by Karen Marie Moning. It’s probably my all-time favorite book.

Oh, wow! I’ll have to check that out. Highland? Warrior? Taming him? Sounds good to me! Of all the characters you’ve ever written, who is your favorite and why?

Taeg, the hero of Mark of the Sylph, Book 2 in my Demons of Infernum series. I just love his personality. He’s such a sarcastic know-it-all, and the perfect blend of confident and easygoing, with only the slightest touch of Alpha. Sigh...I love him.

Oh, yum! I can’t wait to read this series, and you’re making me want to NOW! *grins* Okay, now, just for fun:

Milk chocolate or dark chocolate? Both!

Salty or sweet? Depends on my mood. ;-)

Bed or kitchen table? I’d love to say table, but I’d be lying. I’m all about the comfort.

Beach or mountains? Beach

Give or receive? Uh...what exactly are we talking about here? *grin*

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 fiancĂ© 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.

Linda said...

I just my hot little hands on a copy (it was a giveaway!) of Touch of the Angel & Heart of the Incubus sounds just as yummy!

I'm a wimp too. I don't mind (too much) reading spooky stuff but graphics would scare me silly.
