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.
Each book in the Demons of Infernum series is a standalone, full-length story that can be enjoyed out of order.
Book #1: Blood of the Demon
Book #2: Mark of the Sylph
Book #3: Touch of the Angel
Book #3.5: Heart of the Incubus

Oh Cresso, your story is every bit as delicious as I hoped it would be.
This novella is kind of a detour in the Demons of the Infernum series. All the main novels feature one of four half-demon brothers. But here, we get the love story of a secondary character, Cresso. He is the incubus who came... ...more

I have enjoyed the secondary character of Cresso all through the series and I was so excited to see that he was getting his own story alongside the brothers.
Cresso is an incubus demon, but he is also a dedicated scientist, a loyal friend and someone who can be counted on. Like every other sex de... ...more

When it comes to smokin’ hot supernatural beings, you can’t get much sexier than a sex demon! Incubus Cresso Taylor needed sex to live (wait, don’t most guys go by this motto?), and he was always fine with getting what he needed from any willing succubus that came his way. Until Genevieve Russell... ...more

Cresso Taylor is a biochemist at Elcorp Laboratories, a research facility funded by the Elden Council. The lab's work was primarily focused on ways to better integrate Otherworlders into human society. Cresso's job, as we know from his role in Touch of the Angel, is to find a cu... ...more
HEART OF THE INCUBUS is an excellent insight into the world of demons and shifters the author has crafted for our enjoyment. It's tantalizing enough to make me want to read more and longer stories about bounty hunters, half demons and incubi roaming our reality from other dimensions.
I expected s... ...more

Cresso Taylor was used to women flinging themselves at him. Not only was he drop dead gorgeous and very wealthy, he was also an incubus whose natural charms and magnetism drew the fairer sex like flies to honey. How typical that fate would have him fall in love with the one woman who seemed not o... ...more
Heart of the Incubus is book #3.5 in the Demons of the Infernum series. Since I hadn’t read any of the previous books and this book is short (134 pages), I was concerned when I started it…but after reading the first chapter of the book, I knew this was going to be a good read!
This is a... ...more
ASOMBROSO! ME ENCANTÓ en todos los sentidos! Las descripciones, los personajes, la forma de narrar, todo es impecable!
Debo decir que Gen fue un dolor de cabeza cuando la conocí la primera vez, atascada en el pasado, siempre pensando en Jeffrey y cómo la trató, cómo se sintió por Jeffrey, cómo era... ...more
This was such a fun read! Also, it was number 3.5 in the series--the first three of which I haven't read. I wasn't at all lost, though--there was just the right amount of exposition and explanation--and absolutely plan on picking up the other books soon. The hero and heroine of book two play a ra... ...more

Argh. Genevieve is a judgmental cow. She treats Cresso like crap because of her past experiences with men. I admit I'm not someone with much patience for women who are nasty because they can't get past some idiot who behaved horribly toward them. Usually b... ...more

I really enjoyed this story. It was a nice break from the insta-love stories I’ve been reading lately. Cresso and Gen had a genuine connection outside of sex, and you could feel it.

Heart of the Incubus is an unique story of Dr. Cresso Taylor, an incubus who has fallen in love with Genevieve Russell. From Genevieve's body language, he has always thought that Gen (Genevieve) dislike him since she met him at Elcorp Laboratory. The only thing he could do was interact with her o... ...more
Just a quick review here. I really liked Heart of the Incubus. I haven't read anything else by Ms. Lario, and I think I've been missing out. The story of how they came up with a cure/antidote for incubuses/succubi poisoning their lovers (unless said lover is also a succubus/incubus) sounds like a... ...more

This is the first time in reading this author and the description of the book is what caught my eye. Both working for Elcorp is Cresso and Genevieve and both have their own ways and talents.
