World Building
by Rosalie Lario

My name is Rosalie Lario, and I’m a paranormal romance author. One of the things I love most about writing paranormal romance is the ability to create an entirely new world. When you write in this genre, it’s clear that you are writing fiction, so you have the leeway to create your own rules about the world your characters live in. And needless to say, that’s a whole lot of fun!

When I created my Demons of Infernum world, 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 evil 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.

The nonhumans in my world have different types of abilities, and many of them are in sync with our mythology and lore. For example, vampires really do subsist off blood, though they don’t need to kill, and vampires can be born as well as made. Some of what we’ve heard about the supposedly mythical beings is true...but there are other things we have no clue about.

The demons and other paranormal creatures in my world may be darker than humans, but they aren’t inherently evil. Rather, they choose their own path, just as humans do. Keegan, the hero of BLOOD OF THE DEMON (Book 1 in the series), has made every effort to be the opposite of his evil demon father. He works as a bounty hunter for the council governing travel between the dimensions, hunting down those who commit interdimensional crimes...and he’s determined to stop his father from bringing about the apocalypse on Earth.

I’d love to know, what’s your favorite thing about paranormal romance? Do you enjoy reading about supernatural beings who don’t necessarily fit in with the lore you’ve previously read?

About the author

Formally 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)!

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.
