It's Monday! What are you Reading February 7, 2011?

This meme starts at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books!

What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

It was another good reading week with a variety of enjoyable reads! I finished  three review books, plus one for me. I posted and Author Guest post, two reviews with Giveaways, a Valentine Giveaway, a blog tour announcements, an Enquiring meme post and my Sunday post.

I didn't get to reply to posts again last week but I did visit all those who visited me. Plus I visited again a little through Cym's Wednesday and some other reviews but still not as much as I would like.
These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.

To Tempt A Rake (Circle of Sin)Print: To Tempt A Rake (Circle of Sin) by Cara Elliott.  I am a third into this for review and Hachette Giveaway on Wednesday 2/9.  I like this series.
Kate Woodbridge has spent most of her life sailing to exotic ports around the globe, acquiring an expertise in botany, along with a few less ladylike skills. So when a deathbed promise to her parents brings her to London to seek reconciliation with her grandfather, the imperious Duke of Cluyne, she feels like a fish out of water. Her outspoken views and fiery temper tend to set off sparks in Society-especially with the rakish Conte of Como.
A devil-may-care rogue, Marco finds the alluring and mysterious Kate a tempting target for his flirtations. But when murder strikes at the duke's country house party he begins to suspect that she's hiding a dark secret. He has his own clandestine reasons for offering to help her prove her innocence . . . And so begins a journey of dangerous deception that leads from England to the glittering ballrooms of Vienna, where Marco and Kate must duel with a deadly villain . . . and their own explosive attraction.
The Righteous 
Kindle: The Righteous by Michael Wallace I am at 22% on this one. It is well written and interesting. Reading for review for the author.
Product Description
Medical student Jacob Christianson is sent by church elders to investigate a murder within the polygamist enclave of Blister Creek, Utah. He brings his sister Eliza, who at seventeen, must choose a husband from three old men jostling for power within the church hierarchy.

Jacob discovers that the murdered woman has been killed in accordance with secret blood oaths taken within the polygamist temple. Together with his sister, he uncovers a plot to overthrow the church leadership, with murders that reach beyond the community and into the “gentile” world.
Audio: The Collectors by David Baldacci.  Llehn picked this for her audio win so I will listen to it and send it on.  I will start Monday morning.
The CollectorsPeople are dropping dead in Washington, D.C. First the Speaker of the House falls victim to a hit man in a carefully orchestrated murder in front of dozens of the city's power elite. Next, the director of the Library of Congress's Rare Books Room dies in a book vault, but no one knows how. Caleb Shaw, Camel Club member, nearly falls victim, too. Across the country, a gifted con woman assembles an A-list team to pull off one of the most audacious scams ever, against one of the most dangerous men in the world. When the worlds of Washington and the elite con collide head-on, the Camel Club finds itself teamed with a person they don't really trust but whose skill helps them unravel a secret that threatens to bring America to its knees.
Audible: Thinking of changing my audible for now. We'll see.

Destroyermen: Into the Storm by Taylor Anderson. I didn't listen to this at all this week and it will probably be on hold a bit while I get my scheduled February reads in.
