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.

Guest Post by Rosalie Lario - Building a Fictional World

First off, I’d like to thank Arianne and Kayla for inviting me to their blog! My name is Rosalie Lario and I’m the paranormal romance author of the Demons of Infernum, a series featuring four sexy half demon brothers who are interdimensional bounty hunters here on Earth.

One of the things I enjoy most about writing paranormal romance is the ability to create the world in which my characters live. This is a big deal for me, because I love characters who have a little something ‘extra’. When I first thought up my series, I knew I wanted to have sexy demon heroes who are stronger, faster, and heal quicker than humans. But I didn’t want to have the usual take on demons: making them creatures from Hell. So I created a reality with multiple dimensions, where demons are a race of beings from a world called Infernum. Portals allow for travel between dimensions, and a lot of nonhumans live here on Earth. But nonhumans can be glamoured to appear otherwise, so most of the people born here on Earth go about their lives in complete ignorance of the various races of beings that inhabit their world.

Once I decided my brand of demons would be from another dimension, I had to go about building that world. I gave Infernum many of the characteristics that are often associated with our modern definition of Hell: it’s a desert like world that’s always dark and hot, and there isn’t much in the way of technology. People born on Infernum are used to fighting for their lives on an everyday basis, and they’re all dying to escape their world.

Making Infernum such a hellish world had the benefit of giving me some tortured heroes. I built that up even more by making the heroes half-brother bounty hunters who grew up with a sadistic demon father. Oh yeah, they’ve got some major daddy issues. And when dear old daddy becomes the fugitive most hunted by the Elden Council—the political council governing travel and interaction between the races—the brothers are more than eager to help take him down.

I’d love to know what you enjoy most about paranormal romance. Is it the intricate world building? The superhot Alpha heroes? The kick-ass heroines? All of the above?

rosalieFormally trained as a corporate and real estate lawyer, I practiced law for 5 years before finally admitting to myself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. As an avid reader of romances and supernatural stories, I knew I wanted to write urban fantasy and paranormal romance.  Tales of vampires, demons, and other supernatural beings ensued.

I’m currently working on the Demons of Infernum series, a series of paranormal romance novels featuring four sexy half-demon brothers and their reluctant heroines.

When not writing, I enjoy spending time with my husband and son in our home state of Florida, as well as searching out things that go bump in the night. I still haven’t found any, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed.

If I ever do find evidence of the supernatural, it remains to be seen whether I’ll jump around in excitement, or run screaming in terror (but I’m betting on the latter)!
