About the Book

Meet the Author:

Maria Riegger is based in the Washington, DC area. She is a banking/corporate attorney by day (but please don’t hold that against her), and a fiction author by night.

Maria is a Gemini whose head has always been in the clouds. From a young age, her mother scolded her for not paying attention; when she was bored, she would make up stories in her head. She has been writing since she was about thirteen years old. A lover of languages, she speaks French, Spanish, and Catalan.

She has been caught air-guitaring in public. She loves to laugh, and is the “go-to” person if a friend needs someone to laugh at his lame jokes. In true Gemini fashion, she indulges both her logical personality as an attorney as well as her creative fiction-writing personality. She loved law school and even misses it, which led her friends to conclude that she is certifiable.

A native of the Washington, DC area, she is a political junkie who has respect for all views and who admires the political involvement of Americans. She loves nothing more than a solid political discussion where all views are represented.

An irreverent Gen X’er, she writes gritty contemporary romance, with plenty of sarcasm.


Best Book Bit:

In front of Tarek’s door, I took a deep breath and exhaled slowly. Before I could think about it, I reached out my fist and knocked.

Maybe I should leave, I thought.

All of a sudden, the door opened in one movement, and Tarek was staring into my eyes.

“Isabel.” His tone was surprised. Oh my God, he looked happy to see me.

“Hey,” I said. “I, uh — I came to see you.” I paused, putting my hands in my jacket pockets
nervously. “But if it’s not a good time —”

“No, no,” he said, touching my elbow and leading me inside. “Come in.”

I stood there right inside his door like an idiot, with him waiting for me to say something.

“Tarek, I’m here because —” I looked down, then gathered my courage and raised my eyes to his. “I wanted to apologize.”

“For what?”

I was still looking at him. My God, did he really not know? Did he really think that I had nothing to apologize for? Maybe he was merely humoring me. But his eyes were questioning.

I still had my hands in my pockets. “I was such a jackass to you on the phone and — you were— you were so nice to me. You were so nice.” I shook my head, incredulous. “You’re always so nice to me. Even when I don’t deserve it. And I don’t — I don’t deserve it.”

“That’s not true,” he insisted.

I sucked in my breath sharply. “But I’m getting away from what I really wanted to tell you.”

“Tell me,” he said without hesitation.

I realized I was holding my breath. I exhaled as I painfully said, “I can’t stop thinking about

Tarek’s eyes widened. I guessed he had not been expecting this.

There was no going back now. “I’m crazy about you,” I breathed. “And if you don’t feel the
same way, we should stop spending time together, because I can’t do it anymore. It would feel awful to spend time with you, if you don’t —” I choked on the words.

My pulse was racing, my entire body on fire.

But apparently Tarek was more impatient than I was, if that were even possible, because the next few moments shocked the crap out of me.
