i know a book named "dare to fail " of a malaxian author
So which is right
"to touch" puts the emphasis on "dare", meaning to try something risky.
Removing the infinitive from touch puts the emphasis on "touch", which is likely the speaker's intent. However, this likely began as "Don't you dare to touch it!" and has since been reduced.
