Book Review Express Review Corner brings you
“Sworn” Book 1 of the Blood Duet by Maria Luis. (review below)
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…
And he will be my downfall.
Oh My Gosh! Absolutely have no clue how to start this review other that to say: Phenomenal! The author has written a very suspenseful, action packed storyline that will have you on the edge of your set from the very first chapter. A storyline set in the dark shady underworld of New Orleans. A storyline about a young girl who has been forced to grow up and live a life in the shadows and a young man who is forced to do things he regrets but sees no way out.
The storyline takes off as these two meet. The chemistry between them is amazing and by the author’s words you can tell that they are drawn to each other by an unseen force. But what? What draws these two to go against everything they know and to throw out knowledge that have kept them alive in the harsh world around them.
No other words but simply phenomenal writing and a storyline that I can’t wait to see where it turns next – which of course is coming up in part 2 of the duet. A duet that based on book 1 I Highly Recommend! FYI – I’d give book #1 of this Duet 10 stars to if only it was allowed!!

Maria Luis is the author of sexy contemporary romances, though she may or may not have a few historical romances hiding in the cobwebs of her computer.
When she’s not writing about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet, Maria is a historian who specializes in medieval England and 19th century New Orleans. What do the two eras have in common, you ask? Not much, except for disease, scandalous activities and crime–Maria’s favorite topics.
Maria lives in New Orleans with her better half, where she can generally be found hiking with her two dogs, Zeus and Athena, kayaking in Louisiana’s inter-coastal waterways, or curled up on the couch with a good book.
