I have read all of Maria’s hockey romances, recommended book 1 in her rom-com NOLA series on SBC. They were all definitely lighter than this book. I was surprised how gritty, and a little dark, she wrote these characters. I loved Linc and Avery, how she tried to stay away from him, remain off the radar of both criminals and cops. But Linc is tenacious when he sees something he wants, and he was definitely curious about this girl peddling tarot card readings. Linc makes Avery want and she hates him for that in the beginning, but once they give in to the chemistry… whoa baby. Linc will make you blush with his dirty talk, but Avery is no pushover. I can’t wait for the story to conclude.

"If we leave, I'm going to fuck you. Do you get that? There's no third chance. You either agree or go find someone else to play this cat and mouse game."

From The Publisher


I bow to no man.

The words are tattooed on my skin, just as they’re branded on my heart.

But I never planned for Sergeant Lincoln Asher, a man as deceptive as he is cold. His dominance sets my teeth on edge . . . and my body on fire. He won’t stop until I’m his, but I’m not his to take.

My secrets bind me—and blind me.

I live in the shadows of New Orleans. Hidden and protected in the underworld I call home. I know who I am.

I vow never to kneel before a man...

Save one.

And he will be my downfall.

Sworn is Book 1 of the Blood Duet. Lincoln and Avery's story concludes in Defied, which releases on May 31st.

Other Books by Maria Luis

My first foray into the Romance genre came my freshman year in high school English, where the teacher had us all read books from several different genres. So, my first book boyfriend and PnR introduction, if you will, was Richard Merlin, from The Wizard of Seattle. Prior to that, I’d only read Fantasy or Sci-fi, with a little teen horror thrown in for angst. I was reading The Vampire Diaries decades before it was even a twinkle in the eyes of the producers. Now, I am addicted to PnR, always reading at least one book a week about vamps, wolves, angels, demons, Fae, or overall magic.
