Demons of Infernum - Book Four - Rosalie Lario

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 fiancé 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. But when a secret admirer’s affection turns to the macabre with threatening notes and grisly gifts, Cresso appoints himself her protector. As she and Cresso hunt her stalker, she discovers there’s a lot more to the sensual incubus than she ever imagined.

Saph's Review:

Book 3.5 (or 4 depending on the site you use for info) is another wonderful story in the Demons of Infernum series.  This is a novella; about 100 pages shorter than Books 1, 2, or 3.  Heart of the Incubus stars Cresso, a friend of the Keegan, Dagan, Taeg, & Ronin.  He's an incubus that has created a serum that neutralizes the poisons that succubi and incubi secrete, now allowing him to enjoy human companionship.  Instead of being a tale of a bad guy wanted to rule the world, this is more of a tale of romance and suspense. Cresso has his eyes on human Genevieve, who's gun-shy about men and relationships since her fiancé broke off their relationship. And to top it all off, Genevieve is being stalked, and the revelation of said stalker is played out quite well.

We don't see much of the Meyers brothers in this novella  and that's okay.  It helps us get to know Cresso a little more since he shows up on some of the first 3 books.  Even though Cresso is a secondary character in other novels, he handles being the main character here just fine.  He picked a strong female character, Genevieve, too, and while she needs help, she's nothing short of amazing.  Cresso and Genevieve are very strong characters, and the plot, although different from Books 1-3, is solid.
