It's Monday! What are you Reading February 28, 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.

This was another good reading week with three completely different review books read. I posted four reviews, three with Giveaways; an author interview; the Enquiring meme post and my Sunday post.

I did visit at least 10 blogs over the week. I still want to do more.
These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.

Print:  My Love, My Enemy by Jan Speas
My Love, My EnemyI am a third of the way into this.  I like the premise but hope it picks up a bit. I plan to post the review and ARC giveaway 3/3.
Product Description
Casablanca Classics presents this runaway bestseller, a swashbuckling historical romance by a beloved author
A passion for adventure...
Beautiful, naïve, and impulsive, Page Bradley inadvertently rescues English spy Lord Hazard in Baltimore during the tumultuous War of 1812. Now she must put herself at the mercy of her country's enemy.
An aptitude for deception...
Lord Hazard is no stranger to the atrocities of war, but he never imagined the beauty that could come of it until he meets the fiery and irresistible Page. Now he finds himself questioning every loyalty he's ever felt for King and Country.
Amidst the turmoil of war and the peril of the high seas, these two sworn enemies are destined to discover that denying love may be worse than treason.
Print and Kindle:
House Divided by Raul Ramos Y Sanchez  
I have the print but thought this would be quicker to read on Kindle.
This is a very interesting plot!
House DividedOnce they had a country, a culture, a future. Today, upheaval and betrayal have turned their world upside down. And for one family-a U.S. war hero, his deeply religious wife, and their impressionable fourteen-year-old son-a new struggle has just begun.

Mano Suarez made a choice to fight against injustice, and his wife can only pray for his deliverance. Now their son, Pedro, takes up his father's cause . . . disappearing into the ranks of a cult-like organization and leaving his family far behind. To rescue him, Mano must face the consequences of his past deeds. But how can he convince his son to give up the very ideals he, Mano, embraced? How can he prove that home and family are the most important ideals of all?
