Entangled in Love Character Interview and Giveaway with Rosalie Lario

Valentine Character Interview and Giveaway
By Rosalie Lario

Today I thought it would be fun to feature Cresso, the main characters from Heart of the Incubus, my novella set in the Demons of Infernum world. It takes place late spring, shortly after Genevieve and Cresso get together, but he’s been in love with her far longer than that...

Rosalie:  I’ll start off with a brief introduction. Cresso, you work as a biochemist for Elcorp Laboratory, which is an Otherworlder research lab funded by the council governing travel between dimensions. This is where you met Dr. Genevieve Russell, right?    

Cresso:  Yes, Gen started working at Elcorp over a year ago. She’s a chemical of the most brilliant in existence, if I may add.

Rosalie:  So, from the moment you both met, it was love at first sight.

Cresso:  Not exactly. She hated my guts.

Rosalie:  I still find that incredibly hard to believe.

Cresso:  I know. It wasn’t until recently that I realized her feelings toward me weren’t personal, but based on her past experiences. To put it plainly, her ex-fiance was a douchebag.

Rosalie:  What does that have to do with you?

Cresso:  She walked in on her ex with two other women. Since she knew I was an incubus and survive off sex, she assumed I was the same kind of man.

Rosalie: a way, weren’t you? I mean, you weren’t necessarily known for living the life of a monk before you two got together.

Cresso:  That was before Gen. She’s changed my life completely. I know it sounds corny, but she’s made me whole.  

Rosalie:  Okay, since Valentine’s Day just passed, I was hoping you would repeat a story Gen told me about what you did last V-Day.

Cresso:  Crap, she told you about that?

Rosalie:  You know I know everything about your personal life.

Cresso:  Ah f***. Okay, here’s the deal. This past Valentine’s Day, she didn’t know how I truly felt about her, and I still assumed she hated me, but...she always seemed so serious and caught up in her work. So sad. I wanted to make her smile.

Rosalie:  So what’d you do?

Cresso:  So I, uh... *mutters something under breath*

Rosalie:  What’s that?

Cresso:  I slid a box of Fauchon chocolates into her lab when she wasn’t looking. Seems obvious and trite, I know, but I noticed that she has a weakness for that brand of chocolates. Didn’t tell her they were from me, of course. She might’ve tossed them back in my face if she’d known.

Rosalie:  So she didn’t get suspicious about receiving chocolates from a mystery admirer?

Cresso:  I left a note saying they were a gift from the board of directors at Elcorp. They do give gifts for the holidays, so it didn’t seem like such a big stretch.

Rosalie:  Aww, that’s so sweet!

Cresso:  Stop, you’ll make me blush.

Rosalie:  I didn’t think an incubus could get embarrassed about anything.

Cresso:  Guess you found my weak spot. Anyway, the chocolates put a smile on her face, so they were well worth it.

Rosalie:  That was an awfully nice thing to do for someone who professed to dislike you.

Cresso:  What can I say? No matter how she felt about me, I knew I loved her. Seemed like such a small thing to do, really.

Phone rings, and Cresso pulls it out of his pocket and reads the display.

Cresso:  Gotta go. That’s Gen. She’s downstairs waiting for me.

Rosalie:  Thanks for taking the time to answer my questions.

Cresso rises and starts for the door.

Rosalie:  Oh, Cresso.

Cresso:  Yes?

Rosalie:  I hope you two stay together forever. I truly do.

Cresso:  *Smiles widely* No worries. We will.

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.

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 hellbent on destroying everything—and everyone—they love. And Ronin and Amara are at the top of his list…

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.

DEMONS OF INFERNUM - Book One by Rosalie Lario

Keegan lives to exact revenge on the evil demon who sired and abused him. When his father devises a plan to bring on the apocalypse, he and his three half-brothers, interdimensional bounty hunters for the Elden Council, are charged with capturing and delivering their father for punishment.

Art gallery owner Brynn Meyers has no idea that her ability to read memories embedded in objects and drain people of their life force means she has demon ancestry. Unfortunately for Brynn, she’s also the key to raising an ancient zombie army, which puts her on every demon’s Most Wanted List.

And no one wants her more than Keegan’s father.

Keegan must protect Brynn from his father by any means necessary, but he’ll have to learn to harness the other half of his genetics—the far deadlier, uncontrollable half—when he starts to fall for the one woman standing between him and the vengeance he so desperately seeks. The one woman he’ll never be able to resist.
