Brain to Books Cyber Convention Blog Hop!


April 7, 2017 —


Hi! I’m Maria Riegger, and welcome to my Brain to Books Cyber Convention Post! I’m a banking/corporate attorney in Washington, DC by day (please don’t hold that against me), and a fiction author by night.

I’m a Gemini whose head has always been in the clouds. From a young age, my mother scolded me for not paying attention; when I was bored, I would make up stories in my head.

I’m an irreverent Gen X’er, who has been caught air-guitaring in public on multiple occasions, and who always laughs at lame jokes. I write gritty contemporary romance, with plenty of sarcasm. Thanks so much for visiting!

Where to find me at B2B Cycon

I’ll be participating in the Romance section, and will be doing a giveaway of the first two novels in the Law School Heretic series here.

You can browse through all your favorite genres at the Book Expo, and discover new authors at the Author Showcase, which is also accessible on Goodreads. Stop by my Goodreads Author Showcase booth here.



Book 1 available now on Amazon (Kindle and print) and Nook.

Description: Outspoken and abrasive, law student Isabel enjoys arguing with just about everyone, including her friends. It’s 2010, and her strained relationship with her mother, less-than-stellar job prospects and frustrations with the conformist political culture of Washington, DC have left her resentful and unfulfilled. Only her sisters and a few good friends are able to keep her semi-grounded. When she meets a new fellow student who dares to challenge her, she is intrigued but skeptical. While Isabel is risk-averse where her feelings are concerned, she is also becoming increasingly curious. She’s afraid to get close, because being vulnerable always lead to being hurt, doesn’t it?

Book 2 available now on Amazon (Kindle and print) and Nook.

Description: Antagonistic Washington DC law student Isabel must face her unsettled past and navigate the final weeks of the semester while figuring out fellow student Tarek’s feelings for her before he slips away.



Available in late 2017.

Description: Monica, a Republican congressional candidate, who had a past affair with her Democratic opponent, Brian, must now deal with the fallout from a public scandal while navigating a razor-thin election and resolving her recurring emotional attachment to her opponent. As oversized egos and the desire to win an election at all costs threaten the bond slowly forming between these two political opponents, they end up discovering that they may have more in common than they originally thought.
