Win one of 10 signed copies of ONE NIGHT IN MONACO, the sexy and compelling new romantic suspense by USA Today Bestselling Author Blair Babylon!
One night in Monaco, my best friend, Maxence, disappeared.
I have no idea what Maxence was doing in Monaco that night. Yeah, he loves the Monte Carlo casino—the venue of British spy movies, billionaires, Russian mafia, and roulette.
But too many people in Monaco think he might be a danger to them.
He never should have been there.
Simone was at the casino, too. She's trouble from our past at boarding school. Her husband is a good friend of some of the people who would be happier if Maxence wasn’t around anymore.
They tell me Maxence was here in the casino, and then a few minutes later, he was gone.
Like he dropped off the face of the Earth.
Or like he was dropped off of a cliff or a yacht into the blue Mediterranean Sea, which was just a few feet away from where he was standing.
Arthur and I are here to find Maxence, no matter what it takes.
But we might end up finding his body.
A stirring and romantic historical novel about nineteenth-century Vienna and the tragedy and dynamic passion that inspired Ludwig van Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.
Vienna, 1800. Countess Julie Guicciardi’s life is about to change forever. The spirited eighteen-year-old is taking piano lessons with Ludwig van Beethoven, the most talented piano virtuoso in the musical capital of Europe. She is captivated by his volatile genius, while he is drawn to her curiosity and disarming candor. Between them, a unique romance. But Beethoven has a secret he’s yet to share, and Julie is harboring a secret of her own, one so scandalous it could destroy their perfect love story.
When Beethoven discovers the truth, he sets his emotions to music, composing a mournful opus that will become the Moonlight Sonata. The haunting refrain will follow Julie for the rest of her life.
Set against the rich backdrop of nineteenth-century Vienna, The Woman in the Moonlight is an exhilarating ode to eternal passion. An epic tale of love, loss, rivalry, and political intrigue. A stirring portrait of a titan who wrestled with the gods and a woman who defied convention to inspire him.
"A spellbinding book about a missing child, and about the life of a writer. Bold, suspenseful, and impossible to put down. This one will stay with me for a long time." — Samantha Downing, New York Times bestselling author of My Lovely Wife

They say everything is fun and games until someone gets hurt. Well, someone did—and now the game has changed…
Emily Bennett works as a therapist in Pennsylvania, helping children overcome their troubled pasts—even as she struggles to forget her own. Once upon a time, Emily was part of a middle school clique called the Harpies—six popular girls who bullied the new girl to her breaking point.
The Harpies took a blood oath: never tell a soul what they did to Grace Farmer.
Now, fourteen years later, it seems karma has caught up to them when one member of that vicious circle commits suicide. But when a second Harpy is discovered dead shortly after, also from apparent suicide, the deaths start to look suspicious. And when Emily starts seeing a woman who looks a lot like Grace Farmer lurking in the shadows, she’s forced to wonder: Is Grace back for revenge? Or is Emily’s guilt driving her mad?
Sticks and stones may break your bones, but the Harpies are about to find out just how much words can hurt you.
Enter to win one of 10 signed copies of BEHEMOTH . . . One of the best reviewed horror novels of the year!
Here is some of the praise reviewers have given to BEHEMOTH:
The Horror Review says "BEHEMOTH is old-school gothic horror and historical horror mixed with modern-world superstitions and prejudices and that makes things that much more chilling. Newquist has created a fine horror novel that dares to be called literary/historical fiction and entertains the reader from start to finish."
"I'm not a fan of the frequently overused phrase "unputdownable" but there really is no other way to describe this book. This was easily a 5 star read . . . on my top reads of the year list."
"Newquist is an accomplished writer and it shows on each page of BEHEMOTH. A wild ride that doesn’t ease up on tension, BEHEMOTH is a must-read for any horror junkie."
"One of the best books I've read in a very long time. Sent chills up my spine to where I thought I might need a priest . . ."
