Overview

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.

Meet the Author

Rosalie Lario practiced real estate law for several years before finally admitting to herself that negotiating contracts wasn’t nearly as fun as dreaming up stories. As an avid reader of romances and supernatural stories, she knew she wanted to write paranormal romance.

When not writing, she enjoys spending time with her husband and son in their home-state of Florida, as well as searching out things that go bump in the night. She still hasn’t found any proof of the supernatural, but she’s keeping her fingers crossed.

    Love and Hate Relationship!

    (4.5 Stars!)
    If you read my review on the 4th book earlier you know I gushed about these covers, love them! They set the mood for the book perfectly, it's bit dark and has the romance without the buff guy shot ( not that I don't love those as well! ;D ). I really do enjoy Lario's writing, its right up there with the best of them. It's fun, witty, hot and had the right amount of darkness, sadness and tension. And I love a book with tension to keep the chemistry just right! Mark Of The Sylph was great tale of romance, demons, tension and inevitable danger to bring the couple together and sealing the deal.

    Maya and Taeg made the best couple, with the fighting and the banter and the scorching hot sex! I loved their chemistry ( and the kidnapping and the tied to the bed bit! ;) ), Taeg felt instant attraction, Maya felt instant hate, and watching much strong Taeg toy with Maya who could hold her own was the best form of couple foreplay! Also this is the first I got to know of the half-demon brothers and boy do they have things going for them, I love guys who act arrogant and snarky and yet completely fall for the girl and give her the whole world and the soft heart they had secretly nurtured the whole time just for her. Can't wait to read more of these books!

    The only reason why I didn't give this book the full five stars was because while it was amazing it was slightly slow at parts that made me want to skip a little to get to where Maya and Taeg were the main focus, I could have lived without the enemy's chapters.

    You'll love this if... you like your heroines strong in give a run for your money kind of way, and your heroes tough, strong in the will kick your ass six ways till Sunday kind of way - and love seeing them battle out while falling in love, when that's the last thing they should be doing

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book


    This is a great new series and I wish I had read the first one.

    Imagine my surprise when I started reading this book and found out it was about a half-demon named Taeg. To find out that he had fairy blood in him to. I never thought I would read about a combination like this. I also met other half-demons that had other parts that I never thought I would read about. Such a sexy demon and I wish I could really meet him.

    Maya Flores is a librarian. What everyone else doesn’t know is that she can also see what others really are. She can’t be glamored and magic doesn’t work with her. She is on a mission to rid the world of every single demon that she can. She is a really kick butt woman. One I would love to be.

    To say that I really got into this book is an understatement. The author did a wonderful job bringing this story to life. It was a very thrilling read and was full of excitement. I loved how Maya wasn’t a woman that would back down from anything. I love when a woman in the leading role can stick up for herself and doesn’t let a man make all her choices.

    I can’t wait to read the rest of this series. I know I will have to go and read the first one. I won’t mind that since I had such a great time reading this one. This is the first time that I have read a book by this author. This is why I love what I do. I am always finding more and more new authors to read about. It’s great getting a change every once in awhile.

    This was pretty action packed. I love reading about men that will do anything for his family and doesn’t back down even when he knows that he might lose what he holds dear. These two were really well matched. I just want to thank the author for doing such a wonderful job writing the book and the characters really kicked butt.

    If you love paranormal books and want to change it up a little bit then this is the book for you.

    Once again I have to admit I judged the book by its cover. But that's a good thing. I started this book about 9pm last night and had to put it down because the words became blurry. I just finished it not even 5 minutes ago. I didnt know that Mark of the Sylph was book 2 in this series(but I will be reading that one also. I have to say that I love the character of Maya take no crap kinda girl that I could really relate to. I have to say when she first meets up with Taeg I loved that "I hate you but I think I can like you" situation. After she stopped trying to beat his butt the story took a romantic turn. This will be an author I put on my TBR list so I can keep up with the series. I hope Dagan's book is next.

    This book is the perfect blend of action, humor, and sexy!!! I couldn't put it down. Rosalie has managed to create characters I will not soon forget and we're not talking only the protagonists. She sets up her future books in this very well, providing enough insight into her secondary characters so as to arouse an interest in getting to know them better. The plot was intricate and the action was described very well. Your heart races imagining how the fights would look!
    The fact that Maya is such a strong woman protagonist is probably what I liked best about this book because I’m a firm believer in a woman being able to take care of herself, though sometimes it IS nice to sit back and let our men take care of us. Taeg is loyal, patient, funny, and passionate. Through Rosalie’s writing, we are able to see his many facets through action and dialogue very clearly. It’s easy to see how Maya’s character could fall in love.
    The book was written beautifully with evident care and particular attention to detail. Lately, I’d been veering away from the paranormal romances but this brought back that “thing” I’d been missing full force. I cannot wait to devour more of Rosalie Lario’s books and boy are they a treat!!

    Wow! Okay, if you have something that needs to be done, don’t pick up this book. If you don’t have a sense of humor, and you don’t get subtle jibes, don’t pick up this book. If you’re not interested in action packed adventure, demons and humans falling in love, well you know. This might not be the book for you.

    However, if you like action the kind that keeps you turning the page because you have to find out what is going to happen next. If you love seeing a woman that is strong, determined and downright spunky, you really need to pick up this book. If you love seeing a man, alright demon, trying to explain to a demon slayer why she really should not take him out, this is the book for you.

    Demons come in all sizes and shapes, and there are so many shades of gray. Maya learns through her journey with Taeg that her notions of demons aren’t as cut and dry as her upbringing taught her. She’s got the skills and she’s a demon slaying ball of fire. I loved watching her grow and fall in love with Taeg. 

    This is a wonderful spellbinding treat! I literally hated putting the book down to cook dinner, fold laundry. All of that mundane stuff could wait! This was a story I wanted to get lost in, and it took me for a wonderful adventure.

    Rosalie Lario is an absolute genius!!!  She manages to carry off

    Rosalie Lario is an absolute genius!!!  She manages to carry off a great paranormal romance with scorching sex scenes while adding comedy, suspense, and mystery.  She is my new favorite author.  I didn't read the first book in the series, but I will definitely get it as soon as I finish writing this review.  I love that even though this book is the second in the series with a third on the way--see I've already researched and found it--I didn't have any problems finding my place or being inundated with information from the first book.  It's a fast read with plenty to keep you smiling and reaching to make sure your better half is close by.

    Taeg is the most sexy and delicious combination of fae and demon on Earth--literally.  He's all man and intent on helping his brother keep his sister-in-law and their unborn child safe.  While doing research in the library he stumbles upon a grumpy library worker that apparently sees past his ""glamour"" that disguises the fact that he is not human.  Maya has lived through the loss of her family due to her unique ability to see demons.  She has an intense hatred for them and the skills to kill them.  Too bad Taeg decides he must have Maya to help him with his quest.  The plot of the story was in no way overshadowed by the personalities of the characters.  It was totally believable and I kept forgetting that these otherworldly beings don't exist.  I was totally pulled into the story where I happily remained despite numerous other demands for my time.  I had to make sure that Maya and Taeg accomplished their goal.

    Taeg and Maya are funny, warm, and lovable characters.  They are both very spirited individuals.  I loved how Maya would fight Taeg and he would shake it off and ask for more.  While he was getting his butt kicked he fell for her in the hardest way and while she was hard at work fighting him with her body she left her heart unguarded and he slipped right in.  Maya gives Taeg as good as she gets.  She's fearless when it comes to standing by her man and protecting him.  Forget about the usual silly heroine running from danger in tears and get this book to read about a heroine that pulls daggers and swords from her body and her boots to cut heads from demons like she's slicing bread.

    Mark of the Sylph is the second in the Demons OF Inrernum series

    Mark of the Sylph is the second in the Demons OF Inrernum series, but works really well as a stand alone book. I loved the strong characters and the sarcastic humor. Maya isn't the typical heroin sitting around waiting to be rescued. In fact she's a totally kick ass, angry woman and she isn't afraid to let everyone around her know it. Taeg is just plain hot. Having a deep sense of honor and a whole lot of sass, you can't help but love him. I can't wait for the next installment.
    A 5 star read all the way

    I didn’t read the first book of this series, but I didn’t need to. This book was able to explain everything in a way that didn’t really seem redundant to those who had read the first, but was enough for those of us who didn’t read the first book to know what was going on. There were a few things that I was confused on, but by the end of the book everything was explained.
    This world was incredibly original, and I absolutely loved all the concepts that the author incorporated into the world. The fact that “demons” don’t come from hell but from other worlds was something that I really liked, since I’ve never really cared for the hell concept. I loved everything about the world—or rather, worlds—that the author created.
    I really liked all of the characters in this book (except for the bad guys, of course). I especially liked Taeg and Maya. Their relationship started out with Maya trying to kill Taeg and got better from there. Maya’s internal conflicts were extremely believable, especially with the way Taeg kept following her around. Taeg was also a very real character, whose devoted loyalty to his family is something to be admired and respected.
    The action was great and I loved all the obstacles that Taeg and Maya had to go through so that they could be together—both internal and external.
    The romance in the book left a little to be desired, since the family problems tended to take precedence. But that didn’t stop Maya and Taeg from falling for each other. The romance between them was obvious to the rest of the characters but Taeg and Maya were clueless. When they finally realized that they had fallen for each other, their love was put to the test in a very interesting and unique way.
    The demons that killed Maya’s family weren’t really expanded on—they were sort of glossed over. I would have liked to know more about them and what happened to them. I’m hoping that will be in the next book so I’m not left hanging!
    I really would have liked to know Taeg’s brothers more in this book, but since I didn’t read the first book I can assume there were more things in there. There will also be books for each of the characters, which is great because I can’t wait to hear more about them. I am definitely looking forward to the rest of the series and I will be reading the first book to get more glimpses inside the life of these interesting and sexy men.

    "Who wouldn't like a woman who can cut off a demon's head in heels? ... I may seem to have some sort of a girl crush on Maya which makes this couple all the more doable in my book!" ~Under the Covers

    Mark of the Sylph starts right where Blood of the Demon left off. While newlyweds Brynn and Keegan await their first child, the threat of a zombie apocalypse still looms over everyone's head when an old rival sets his sights on the book of destruction. But Keegan's brother Taeg will do anything to help his family and to see his nephew live. After days of research Taeg finds out that the only thing that can destroy the book that can end the world, is a sword that has not only been hidden for years but is also glamoured. Lucky for him, all those library visits paid off when he discovered Maya, the librarian, who apparently can see through glamours. Only problem is getting her on board. So Taeg does what any other demon in his family does at a time like this, he kidnaps her! What is it with these brothers kidnapping women?! But of course, nothing can be that simple, and soon Taeg finds himself needing Maya in other ways.

    Maya: librarian by day and demon slayer by night. After living through a demon attack that killed her family, Maya is determined to kill every single demon she encounters, even if it is the hottie who's been coming to the library every day. When she finds him tailing her after her shift at the library there's only one thing on her mind and that's killing the demon bastard. Unfortunately for Maya, things don't turn out the way she planned and she ends up being his captive instead. What's even worse? She's figuring out that not all demons are bad; especially Taeg who for some reason seems a lot more appealing than any other demon she's encountered. Soon Maya realizes that she may be the only hope to saving Taeg's family so she joins the hunt for the sword.

    Now let's bring it on back to Taeg. He's just so likeable. Not only is he hot and has a bad boy quality about him but he's funny! Taeg also has a very kind soul, something that comes as a bit of a shocker to Maya since not only is he a demon but he's a demon bounty hunter as well. It takes Maya a while to get used to the fact that not all demons are the same and it becomes a bigger challenge to fight the mixed emotions that start to develop for the oh so likeable Taeg.

    Taeg seems to find Maya very appealing and who could blame him, Maya is hot! She's a bad ass chick and you all know I love me a bad ass chick! Maya's not annoying, she's not clingy and she can kick some major ass! I mean who wouldn't like a woman who can cut off a demon's head in heels? Not only that but she has curves! YAY for curves! Maya's not the normal tall, slim heroine, she's short and thick! I may seem to have some sort of a girl crush on Maya which makes this couple all the more doable in my book!

    I can't wait to get to the next book in this series so I can see what these hot demon brothers have in store for the future.

    Rating: 4
    Hotness Rating: 3 out of 5

    Wow! The Demon's of Infernum series has seriously picked up! Mark of the Sylph is a fabulous addition to Rosalie Lario's series. In fact MotS totally pulled this series out of the shadows and into the bright lights of stardom!

    Mark of the Sylph takes place six months after the first book in the series, Blood of the demon. This book is about Taeg, the half demon half air sylph (air sylph = faerie) and Maya the magic-sensitive human who also happened to be a demon slayer in her spare time. Taeg thought that he could use Maya's gift to right a wrong that he had done to his sister in law, Brynn, in Blood of the Demon. Actually, he really didn't do anything but he thought he had failed her so he was determined to fix the issue no matter what. Even if it meant kidnapping Maya and forcing her to help.

    Maya was sorta immune to magic. Well, it's more like she's sensitive to it. She could see through the different glamors that demons' surrounded themselves with to make themselves appear human. Due to a horrible incident in her past she thought that all demons were hell spawn and she did whatever she could to return them to their maker. I tend to think of her a Buffy wannabe. Not that she wasn't bad ass or anything. But she was just a well trained human not the 'chosen one'. She was a kick ass heroine though. Maya is everything that you would want in a leading lady.

    The big bad in MotS is Leviathos - who just happened to be Mammon's right hand man in Blood of the Demon, book #1 in the series. I remember him as a sniveling brown noser. In this book, he's still an ass, but I understand him a little bit better. The sentiment behind his actions is just. I would have had it out for Taeg too if I were him. No, I wouldn't have gone to the extremes that he did, but yeah, his feelings are understood.

    So now onto Taeg...

    OMFG!!!!! What a heartthrob! And I'm not only talking about his looks people. He's got this unbelievable cocky and sarcastic humor about him. I don't know why I found him so adorable. I'm the kind of person who's usually turned off by someone like him. But then he did something that was so giving, that even his worse critic would say he's the greatest.

    I'm really diggin' these books. Rosalie Lario's Demon's of Infernum series is something that should be put on your TBR list!

    The book/story had me right up to the origin of the sword.
    A really entertaining couple set for hotness in the bedroom and puppy eye love. Mix a room full of hybrid half demons, who are incredibly handsome, add some interesting shifters and hey presto what can go wrong.
    Well at this point the author decided it would be a great idea to combat the most evil of demon items with a mythical sword that has been in so many books I can't even begin to count them. The storyline went from Urban fantasy to Arthurian Legend and it just didn't gel at all.
    I felt the Sylph element and what happens to Taeg could have been delved into more deeply. That sub-plot was left up in the air a little.The implications of his choice in regards to his relationships and how he protects his family for instance.
    If you take that aspect out of the book it is story with solid characters and plots that will entice the reader. The characters have the right combination of wit and brawn to reel in the reader. If the author adds more substantial plots and steers clear of the more cheesy elements then I think this could be a strong series.
    Other than that one tiny mishap this is a series that holds a lot of potential for further books.
    I received a free copy of this book via NetGalley.

    Best Dang Para Book of this year!

    Rosalie Lario, hmmm... well, I think she's quite brilliant. After reading Keegan's story, Blood of the Demona, I sent Rosalie a note and asked for more Taeg. She promised that she was going to give him to me and she did. Oh, how she did. This was by far one of the best paranormal reads I've had in a while. I loved the fiesty heroine, Maya and her kick-butt attitude.

    The story gave me just enough closure from Blood of the Demon to really remember why I loved the first book in this series and then pushed me into Taeg's story. It was non-stop action, sex, more fun action, hero love, heroine love, more hot sex, and did I mention freaking awesome action. The chemistry between the H & H is unbelievable and I love that Maya can so kick his... behind.

    Hurry up and grab this delight. Awesome book. Bought the ebook and now am off to order the paperback to add to my faves shelf. Rock on Ms. Lario and bring on the rest of the bros.

    Rosalie Lario continues the story of her four half demon brothers from Infernum with Mark of the Sylph, giving readers a fun, exciting and sexy ride into the world of others with cocky second eldest brother Taeg.

    Feeling guilty for letting down his eldest brother Keegan and new sister-in-law Bree, who is now expecting, Taeg is on a mission to find a mythical sword that may be the only weapon strong enough to destroy the Book of the Dead and save Bree and her unborn child's life. While doing research on the artifact he notices that there's something strange about the sexy, but cold, librarian. When he realizes that she can see through glamour her knows she is his only hope at finding the hidden sword and will do anything to use her ability, even if it means lying and kidnapping.
    After Maya Flores witnessed her family being slaughtered by demons she believes they're all evil hell spawn and doesn't hesitate to destroy them. When Taeg approaches her she automatically goes on the defensive, seeing through his glamour into his demon eyes, but as she's forced to spend time with him she begins to realize that not all demons are evil. But can she put aside the guilt over her family's death to love one of them?

    Although this is the second in a series, there is just enough back-story to fill in new readers, though I do recommend reading the first book as well since it was pure awesomesauce!

    Full of danger and desire Mark of the Sylph was just as stellar as the first novel in this series, Blood of the Demon. Lario has built a complex, interesting world without weighing it down with too much detail. Her writing style flows from the pages and her characters come to life. I absolutely love each of the four brother's this series follows and for the life of me cannot pick a favorite, which is rare in my case, they're all sexy and intriguing with endearing qualities each their own.

    I loved Taeg's cockiness at the beginning of the story and how baffled he was by Maya's seemingly un-interest. He really stepped up in this novel showing courage and honor, sacrificing the most important things to him for love. I enjoyed watching him grow throughout the story along with Maya. There was also a lot a humor sprinkled in throughout the dialogue that was entertaining, and I crack up at the shirts these guys wear as well!

    Super hot love scenes, some mystery & suspense, action, definite tension all around and sexy half demons and kick ass heroines; a must read for any paranormal romance fan! I cannot wait for the next book in this series coming in December and featuring Ronin!

    Fantastic 2nd book in this wonderful series...

    My Review:
    This is book #2 in the Demons of Infernum series. My review of book #1, Blood of the Demon, can be seen HERE. I really enjoyed book #1, but OMG, I think that this one was even better. This world is so incredible and thorough and the four brothers are nothing short of fabulous. I adore how close they are without being all up in each other's business. I also really love how committed they are to their women by extension. This is a close-knit group of brothers and I love it when there is that relationship like this between guys in a book.


    Love, LoVe, LOVE Taeg!! The absolute best thing about this book...his t-shirts. Everyday when he gets dressed, it is an adventure to see what his next shirt is going to say. I am dying to know if Rosalie made these up. If so, she seriously needs to start up a graphic tee business!!! Some examples of what they say:
    Need a Job...Will Work for Orgasms
    Real Men Don't Follow Directions
    Awesome in Bed. I Can Sleep for Hours.
    I love how even when Maya was terrified of him, the tee's helped her to laugh a little and maybe lighten up a little bit. And Maya is terrified of him. When she was 10 yo, her entire family was slaughtered by 2 demons. All she knows is that demons are evil and she has committed her life to ridding the world of them.


    As such, Maya is one serious kick-ass chick!! She is tough. She is trained. She does not get intimidated, even when she is scared to death. She keeps two knives in the tops of her boots and another strapped around her torso. Demons are stronger than humans, but in her initial contacts with Taeg, she more than holds her own. She doesn't best him, but she does do some damage. This also shows what an incredible guy Taeg is...he is taking some serious hits from Maya and he never gets aggressive with her or even mad. He just laughs it all off and continues to try not to hurt her. He is honestly a real sweetheart.


    In this book, the search is on for Excalibur (yes, Arthur's sword) and Maya is the key to finding it. It is rumored to be hidden by a very strong glamour, but Maya can see through glamours. At issue, she doesn't trust demons...any demons, but Taeg is quickly on his way of showing her what good guys they can actually be. There is definitely adventure in this book, but I liked that the majority of the book is really about Maya & Taeg and the development of their relationship. The bad guy is in the background, but really doesn't become an issue until the climax of the book. This book is a true romance between two incredible people that, as a reader, you can't help but to fall in love with and cheer along as they begin to connect.


    Just like I loved Brynn & Keegan, I truly loved Maya & Taeg. These brothers have such a heartbreaking story, but they are such truly good guys. I am so excited about the upcoming stories featuring Dagan & Ronin. According to Rosalie's website, there are at least three more projects coming for this series:
    *Touch of the Angel (book #3)
    *Heart of the Incubus (novella)
    *Call of the Siren (book #4)
    I am so excited. I really, truly love this series!!!
