Rosalie Lario: The Lure of Forbidden Love

What is it about forbidden love that is so spellbinding? About finding that one person you just can’t forget, even if you can’t have them? Storylines detailing forbidden love have always been my favorite. Give the hero and heroine a seemingly insurmountable obstacle, something that threatens to keep them apart, and I’m there.

Forbidden love is a common theme in my Demons of Infernum series. The stories feature four brothers who are interdimensional bounty hunters. Set in modern-day New York City, it contains a world very much like our own...with one exception. Supernatural beings roam the streets, undetected by most humans. They aren’t the stuff of horror stories—at least not in the traditional sense. They’re species from other dimensions who have traveled to Earth via portals. Most are law-abiding citizens, but every now and again a fugitive goes on the loose...and that’s where our heroes come in.

Bred to be genetically superior by their demon father, Keegan, Taeg, Ronin, and Dagan are hybrids. Each bears unique genetic makeup, yet the four are similar in their loyalty for one another. But as the brothers battle a growing evil, they will each meet their perfect match. They will find their loyalty—and love—put to the ultimate test. 

TOUCH OF THE ANGEL is the third book in the Demons of Infernum series. This story features Ronin and a love interest who most definitely falls in the forbidden category. See, Amara is a succubus, and her touch is deadly to Ronin. In fact, she nearly kills him the first time they meet. But even though their love is forbidden, they can’t help but fall for each other. Amara is enslaved to an evil incubus, and Ronin is desperate to free her. The two will have to overcome all odds in order to find their happy ending.

To hear more about Ronin and Amara’s love story, be sure to check out TOUCH OF THE ANGEL.

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.

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. You can visit Rosalie at her website:
