Demon protagonists: love ‘em or hate ‘em, they’re everywhere.
I happen to be a huge fan of demons as heroes, so when I dreamt up my latest paranormal romance series, the DEMONS OF INFERNUM, I instantly knew what I would write about.
The world I’ve created consists of multiple dimensions, with different species of beings on each world. One of the worlds, Infernum, is home to a multitude of demon species. Some are good, some evil, but most fall somewhere in between.
Since I write sexy romance, some of these species have very… let’s say interesting abilities. Here are just a few of them:
- Avaritia are gorgeous demons whose natural appearance includes red eyes. They have preternatural strength and are predisposed to desire wealth and power. The four brothers in my series are half avaritia.
- Haknasa are beautiful demons whose saliva induces a drug-like state of ecstasy. One of the brothers, Dagan, has quite a run-in with a haknasa in Blood of the Demon (# 1 in the series).
- Incubus is a gorgeous male demon who feeds off sex. His female counterpart is the succubus.
- Ishtari are demons who can fly. The females are beautiful, large-breasted, and very distracting.
Oh, and did I mention that demons have the ability to telepathically communicate with humans in their sleep? It’s called dreamscaping and it makes for some fun and sexy scenes.
In Mark of the Sylph (#2 in the series), 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.
