Fantastic Fables Event: Mark of the Sylph Prequel

Posted on

I’m participating in the Dark Faerie Tales’ Fantastic Fables Event, and just for fun I thought I’d post a little prequel to MARK OF THE SYLPH. It tells the story of how Taeg first learns about Excalibur.

The post is called The (True) Tale of Excalibur and I hope you stop in to read it!

Release Day for Mark of the Sylph!

Posted on

I’m super excited to announce that today is release day for Mark of the Sylph!

MARK OF THE SYLPH (Demons of Infernum #2)

This story features my favorite hero of all-time. Taeg is a sarcastic smartass who meets his match (and then some) in archaeology student (and part-time demon slayer) Maya! If you haven’t read it yet, here’s a bit more about the book:

Half-demon Taeg is desperate to free his pregnant sister-in-law, who is spellbound to an indestructible book that will create an army of the undead. He is convinced that an ancient sword can destroy the book and the spell forever, but this relic has been hidden for a millennia by a powerful glamour. The clock begins to run out on his search when an old rival goes after the book and Taeg’s family in his quest for revenge.

Librarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way.

Maya is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword. Unfortunately, she wants nothing more than to kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth that not all demons are evil. And the worst part? She might be falling in love with one, too.

Praise for Mark of the Sylph:

Because of this book’s absolutely decadent perfection, I would like to award it the Perfect 10 award from Romance Reviews Today. Thank you, Ms. Lario, for a stunning journey.” ~ Romance Reviews Today, Best Book of the Year 2011 Nominee

Love is in the Air Blog Hop!

Posted on Updated on


Update: Thanks so much to everyone who participated! The winners are as follows:

Mark of the Sylph ~ Natasha Donohoo

For Love of an Angel ~ Lori H.

Welcome to the Love is in the Air Blog Hop, which runs from now through March 31st. My name is Rosalie Lario, and I have a confession: I’m a huge romance buff. (Okay, this is probably pretty obvious, since I write romances.)

Paranormal romance is my favorite genre to write, but when it comes to reading, it really doesn’t matter what the genre is. Give me a romance and I’m there.

So what is it about romance that I find so irresistible? In a word, it’s the hero.

When I read a romance, I’m looking to get swept away by the characters. To become emotionally invested in their journey. My hero doesn’t need to be incredibly handsome or built like an athlete (though I certainly don’t mind it), nor does he have to be the perfect gentleman. But what I do want him to be is real: someone with flaws and insecurities. Someone I can connect with. A hero I can fall in love with.

Just for fun, I thought I’d pick out some of my favorite television heroes and outline which of their characteristics draw me to them:

Dean Winchester – Supernatural. This is probably my favorite character of all time. Not only does he have killer good looks and a smokin’ body, but his humor and wit are unparalleled. The wise-cracking funny guy? I’m so there. And he’s loyal to boot. Nothing will stop him from looking after his younger brother.

Sam Winchester – Supernatural. Getting the sense that I love this show? What Sam lacks in pure wit, he makes up for with both book smarts and street smarts. He’ll take the high road and try to talk himself out of a bad situation, but if that fails, he’s not opposed to resorting to his fists. On a primal level, that turns me on.

Clark Kent – Smallville. What I love so much about this character is his how very human he is, even though technically he’s not. With every decision he makes, he keeps the best interests of those he loves in mind. He’s the ultimate protector, the knight-in-shining-armor.

When dreaming up my DEMONS OF INFERNUM series, I kept all of the above characteristics in mind. The heroes of my series are four half-brothers who are intensely loyal and focused on doing what’s right. No matter what.

MARK OF THE SYLPH is the second book in this series, and it releases on March 26th. It has my favorite type of hero: the wise-cracking smartass.

MotS-500pxLibrarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way.

Half-demon Taeg Meyers is desperate to free his pregnant sister-in-law who is spellbound to an indestructible book that will breed an army of the undead if it is not destroyed. He is convinced an ancient sword can break the spell, but this relic has been hidden for millennia by a powerful glamour.

Maya, with her knowledge of all things paranormal, is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword. Unfortunately, she’d rather kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth—not all demons are evil, and she’s falling in love with one.

My FALLEN WARRIORS series features a group of sexy fallen angels. Their kind seeks to destroy the human race, and the Fallen have been cast out due to their protests. They must find nephilim mates in order to preserve their strength and immortality, and together will take on the remainder of their kind in defense of the human race. Read on for a little more about the first book in the series.

Cover Art - 500_650

In a world where angels rule over humans, twelve outcasts dare to defy expectation, warring with their angel brethren to prevent the extinction of humankind.

They are The Fallen.

Michael is one of twelve angels who have been outcast due to their determination to protect humankind. In order to preserve his immortality and strength, he must find a mate with angel blood. Eva Smyth has never believed the propaganda spouted by the Consortium—the elite system of guards put into place once angels took over reign of Earth—but she never expected to learn the angels plan to eradicate all of humankind, or that she herself is part angel. Joining Michael means living a life on the run, at war against the angels and hunted by the Consortium. Eva must decide whether to risk it all…for love of an angel.
