Maria is a big fan of books, nature, dogs, and pretty things - not always in that order, though.

By day, Maria is a historian who specializes in 19th century New Orleans and 14th century London. What do the two eras have in common? Not much, except for disease, scandal, and crime - Maria's favorite historical topics. (For real, if you want to talk any of the above, just reach out!)

When not digging through the archives, Maria writes romances about strong men and the sassy women who sweep them off their feet.

Her favorite book will always be "Scandal in Spring" by Lisa Kleypas - she's worn the pages so much by re-reading it, but will never give it up.

She loves hearing from readers, so feel free to reach out :)

Kandi Steiner has done it again. I started reading this at what was probably the wrong time (I had work to do) because NOTHING else got done as soon as I started. I swooned. I cried. I cheered. I got all hot and bothered.

There are SO many one-liners

“If you know what’s good for you,” I murmur, my voice pitched low, “you’ll leave, and you won’t come back.”

She audibly swallows. “I’m not scared of you.”

My. Heart. Is. Broken.

Or rather, Elizabeth broke my heart a million times over in this book and then sewed it back together so well that I sobbed.

Yes, you read that right. I started Across Eternity last night at 9:30pm. I finished at 4am on the dot.

“Another shrug—the chiffon strap slid even lower. This, Shaelyn decided, was how her cousin attracted hoards of men like bees after nectar. Without even realizing it, Anna reeled them in like bait. Clearly she and her cousin did not share the same genes.”
Maria Luis, Say You'll Be Mine

“Pure love. I’ve always wondered what it looks like and now I know. It can easily be confused with constipation, so you have to look closely to distinguish the difference.”
Maria Luis, Power Play

“If I’m a hot mess, I’ll own it. But the hot-mess express is about to embark on its grand finale voyage, if I have anything to say about it.”
