It's Monday! What are you Reading August 15, 2011?

This meme starts at Book Journey!
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 finished only three books last week -two were longer (450 and 517 pgs).  I posted three reviews, two with Giveaways and an author Guest Post with Giveaway.  As usual, I posted the regular Friday Pick Giveaway; Saturday Sharing Beyond Books, and Sunday posts.

I did better last week visiting early in the week before I got tied up with work. These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.
Finished Reading:

Tears of Gold
by Laurie McBain
This was long but picked up mid way. 
I will post a review this week. Reading for Sourcebooks.

I LOVED this! 
I'll post a review 
and author interview soon.


I pulled this sequel in from my Audible library- picked up on sale.  Interesting survival of zombie attack. Rating 4.0 in case I don't get to post a review.

Line Edits/Releases: 
Released the second Prom Night Anthology Novella:
Lexie's Choice by Deb Logan. Prom is just around the corner, but Lexie has mixed emotions. The guy of her dreams has issued the invitation, but she can’t afford the kind of dress that makes her drool. Fortunately, her best friend is a faery princess. No. Really. Claire is an honest-to-goodness faery princess with flower faeries at her command. The girls want gorgeous prom dresses? No problem! The flower faeries can deliver. Unfortunately, nothing in Faery is what it seems, and prom dresses for mortal friends carry a hefty price tag. Will Lexie earn her dream dress? The outcome is totally in her hands. Too bad no one told her she’s on trial...

Reading for Sourcebooks.
Product Description
"Fascinating reading...authentic atmosphere in a delightful Enlgish tale"
-Chicago Sunday Tribune
Less than a hero's welcome...

Returning to his family seat from Waterloo, Gervase Frant, seventh Earl of St Erth, could have expected more enthusiasm for his homecoming. His quiet cousin, stepmother, and young half-brother seem openly disappointed that he survived the wars. And when he begins to fall for his half-brother's sweetheart, his chilly reception goes from unfriendly to positively murderous.

One of Heyer's most suspenseful Regency romances, The Quiet Gentleman combines an ingenious mystery plot with her signature witty style and effervescently engaging characters.
Midnight WaltzMidnight Waltz 
by Jennifer Blake
I am looking forward to reading this.
Reading for Sourcebooks.
Product Description
" Lilting prose and glorious description. Jennifer Blake weaves a magnificent tale."
-RT Book Reviews
She has no idea what to expect...
In the aristocratic world of the magnificent plantations of nineteenth-century Louisiana, young Amalie knows how to behave as the new mistress at Belle Grove, but her arranged marriage to Julien Declouet is full of surprises.
He's as different as night and day...
Amalie finds her husband perfectly polite, although oddly aloof, by day, but a completely different man when he visits her in her chambers at night, full of white-hot emotions and passion that sweeps her away. As the steamy Louisiana summer swelters onward, and the mystery of her husband's dual personalities intensifies, the once-innocent Amalie finds herself embroiled in one turbulent scandal after another...
I know I will pull in an Audible or Audio on my MP# - I just haven't decided which one yet.
