I dare you to find me the perfect match, she said.

Luke O’Connor has never turned down a dare. Ever. But that was before his last deployment left the charming playboy a shell of his former self. Now he just wants to be left alone – no hookups, no relationships.

Single mother and the CEO of New Orleans’ hottest lingerie boutique, Anna Bryce has it all – except that a business can’t keep her warm at night. She’s determined to find Mr. Right, but can’t fight her attraction for Mr. All Wrong, the wounded veteran who says he’s not into her.

I dare you to kiss me, she said.
I dare you to love me.

All Luke has to do is resist her dare – but for the first time in his life, he’s betting on losing.

Excerpt
Almost without thinking, Anna pushed away from the security of the car and took a half step toward him. There was no mistaking Luke’s sharp inhale, nor the way his fingers readjusted their grasp to cup her elbow and jerk her close, erasing that final gap between them.
The subtle spice of his masculine cologne hit her, and, oh man, but it was utterly delicious. She wanted to press her nose to his neck and inhale, maybe even run her tongue along the outer rim of his ear before begging him to claim her mouth with his.
Her hand found the hard plane of his chest, the fabric of his cotton T-shirt bunching under her fingers. “Now who’s evading?” she taunted with a half-grin.
She still couldn’t make out his expression, so it came as a surprise when she found her back abruptly pushed up against the car again.
His hands captured her wrists, tugging them up to the hood of her car, just above her head. And, oh my God, but he made no attempt to shield his hips from hers. He was packing, that was for sure. A pistol formed exclusively for a woman’s pleasure.
He settled his hips between hers, dropping his head to her ear to rasp, “What exactly are you asking for here, Anna?”
Anna’s tongue felt swollen, clumsy. Anticipation, maybe. Five years’ worth of pent up lust, most definitely. “I told you,” she whispered, her voice sounding rough even to her own ears, “I want to meet a nice guy who will learn to love Julian.”
Though the words were true, they hung hollow in the air and he certainly caught on.
“That’s not all you want,” he said gruffly, his mouth so close to the column of her neck that as he spoke his lips rasped against her sensitive flesh, drawing out goosebumps and a shiver down her spine.
Their entire relationship had been one set after another of challenges, games. Who was she to stop that now? She shifted her lower body to better cradle his hips, making them both moan at the intimate contact. “Tell me what I want then, since you know all.”
His mouth brushed the underside of her chin. “Me.”

Author Bio
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.
