It's Monday! What are you Reading April 18, 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.

I had a good week reading. I finished four books and posted four reviews, two with Giveaways; a Blog Tour announcement; Enquiring Mind Meme, Sunday post and winner posts.

I had to work crazy on closings in the early part of the week, especially since one of my assistants got sick. I was at a ladies' retreat Friday and Saturday which was wonderful. But I am still frustrated that I haven't gotten to visit other blogs. There is just not enough time to do everything I would like.

These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.

This is the second book for Hachette Review, Giveaway
and Author Q&A on 4/20.
Product Description
Private investigator Vivi Angelino loves living life on the edge, but stepping into the shoes of a movie starlet to bait a serial killer isn't just a thrill . . . it's a ticket to the big time for her fledgling security firm. That is, as long as a certain risk-averse FBI agent stays out of her way-and out of her fantasies.

Assistant Special Agent in Charge Colton Lang isn't above using his well-worn rulebook to stop Vivi's latest walk on the wild side. But when they learn her client is involved in something far more insidious than bad acting, Vivi and Colt must work together despite the electrifying attraction arcing between them. For each new clue is bringing them closer to a high-profile crime with a dark and deadly truth at its core . . . and a cold, calculating murderer with nothing left to lose.

This is for Hachette Review, Giveaway
and Author Q&A on 4/22.
Product Description
Miss Grace Fairchild is under no illusions about her charms. Painfully plain, she is a soldier's daughter who has spent her life being useful, not learning the treacherous ways of the ton. She may have been caught in a scandal with society's favorite rogue, but how can she marry him when it means losing herself?


Diccan Hilliard doesn't know which of his enemies drugged him and dumped him in Grace's bed, but he does know the outcome. He and Grace must marry. To his surprise, a wild, heady passion flares between them. Yet Diccan is trapped in a deadly game of intrigue Grace knows nothing about. Will his lies destroy Grace just as he realizes how desperately he needs her? And how can he hope for a future with her, when an old enemy has set his murderous sights on them both?
I'm not planning on starting a new Audio this week.

This is the second in the series and 
I am looking forward to reading listening to this.
Action heats up between Lt. Eve Dallas and Roarke
The first victim was found lying on a sidewalk in the rain. The second was murdered in her own apartment building. Police lieutenant Eve Dallas had no problem finding connections between the two crimes. Both victims were beautiful and highly successful women. Their glamorous lives and loves were the talk of the city. And their intimate relations with men of great power and wealth provided Eve with a long list of suspects - including her own lover, Roarke.
As a woman, Eve was compelled to trust the man who shared her bed. But as a cop, it was her job to follow every lead... to investigate every scandalous rumor... to explore every secret passion, no matter how dark, or how dangerous.
I am listening to The Listener's Bible NIV 
read by Max McLean. I am at Joshua 5 and Psalm 75 and Matthew 24.

Line Edits: Next I will work on finalizing formats on Soylent Red by Jamieson Wolf.
