ABOUT LOCKE AND KEY

THE STOIC SPECIAL FORCES OPERATOR

There’s only one person to blame for darkening the last years of Locke Oliver’s military career: Cassidy Noble. And damn if he doesn’t have to save her from the side of a frozen mountain.

Even after the job is done, he can’t shake the woman from his thoughts. He blames her for the deaths in his Army unit so many years ago, and he’s not ready to let that go. It’s driving him to the point of distraction, and now his Titan Group boss says to get his act together or get out.

THE FEISTY, FALLEN REPORTER

Cassidy is a disgraced journalist, once accused of treason—Or she’s an American hero. It depends on who you ask. She’s on a mission to rebuild her name and started with a simple question but discovered a complex web of spies and possible human trafficking.

Titan Group believes in her.

Locke does not. Until he can’t deny the truth any longer about the past or what she’s uncovered in her investigation.

BECOME AN INSEPARABLE TEAM

Cassidy volunteers to go undercover. Locke would do anything to stay by her side as she slips into the network and is sold to the highest bidder. All is going right until everything goes wrong. Nothing is as they expect including falling in love with the woman he thought he hated.

Enhancing your reading experience, showing your love of books

As a book lover, we not only buy and collect books. We also possess other items to enhance our reading experience and to show off our love of books.

For this post, I want to show you some of the items I have collected over the years, and continuously collect, to add to my reading experience. Also, I wanted to give you some shopping items to add to your shopping list.

So, first the items I love and use to enhance my reading experience with items both big and small.

  1. BookBub is a website for readers who are looking for great e-book deals or new books to discover. The website has you choose the genres you enjoy reading, and then every day they email you their daily deals of free or discounted e-books based on your preferences
  2.  Of course, what does it mean to read a book without a bookmark? You may be a reader who burns through a book in a few hours without stopping with no need for a bookmark, and that is awesome! However, if you are like me, you are constantly busy and have days where you can only fit in 30 minutes to an hour of reading time. P.S. these are only the ones I currently have at school with me. I assure you my collection is much larger than just three!
  3. If you find yourself reading at night, then you might find it beneficial to invest in a reading light. I personally bought one because 1) I used to share a room with a roommate and stay up late reading 2) now that my roommate and I have separate rooms, I prefer dimmer lighting and 3) I don’t feel like rolling out of bed just to flip the light switch off. It’s late at night and I am tired, so don’t judge.
  4. This is a new discovery of mine. Sometimes you find holding a book open through a reading spree can cause your thumb to hurt, especially with smaller books with stiff binding. This is where “Thumb Thing Book Page Holder” is great. The only drawback I have found is it is plastic and it tends to dig into the top of my thumb, but there are other options out there. I still use it, though, and it is very helpful.
  5. This little gem is called “The Book Seat” and is my favorite new thing in the world to use when reading. I tend to use it more when utilizing my Kindle. You just rest it in your lap and it holds the book up for you! It has annoyed me slightly with paper books when I need to turn the page, but it’s definitely useful with e-readers. I would recommend this for avid book lovers who want something to help prop their books up while sitting or lying on their side when reading.
  6. When setting up a peaceful environment while reading, usually I like to have dim lighting, occasionally turn on my mini essential oil diffuser and soft, mellow music in the background. Spotify has several great playlists for this. I usually go to the “Focus” or “Sleep” category when browsing or to the coffeehouse playlists in the “Mood” category.

Now, book accessories are great, but a true book lover takes it further and buys many items, showing how much they passionately love books, aside from the bookshelves full of books or, in the case of my future home, a whole room (or two) full of books.

  1. Clothes! Nothing says I love books like clothes saying it loud and proud.
  2. Of course, we can’t always hold a book in our hand, especially when we need them for other activities, like eating. So, to continue to convey to the world what an amazing booklover you are, you eat/drink in style.
  3. My mom found these for me and obviously knows me well enough to know my favorite classical romance novel is “Pride and Prejudice.” Find some temporary tattoos, or permanent ones, to show your love of books.

What are some of your favorite book accessories or apparel?

‘Lords of the Underworld’ series: You have to read them all

untitled-design-6

Overall synopsis of full series

After opening Pandora’s box, 13 immortal warriors are condemned to earth and cursed to carry a demon within themselves. Every day is a constant struggle to calm the demon inside and to stay in control.

The Lords are always actively searching for Pandora’s box and the artifacts that can aid them in finding it. Once they find the box, they can remove their demons and return them to the box. However, in the process of their search, they must contend with power-hungry gods, different powerful species, an old friend who irrevocably betrayed them in the past and a group of extremists who believe they are the epitome of evil and must be destroyed.

In the midst of all the turmoil, each Lord finds the woman he is destined to love forever and who can tame the demon within.

Each Lord is an experienced warrior, fiercely loyal towards one another, and would do anything to protect his fellow brothers and their women.

Top three favorite Lords

                I really do love all the Lords in this series; but, of course, I have my top favorites. The reason I love the three listed below is because they’re cocky and witty. They will make you laugh at their sly and sometimes crude humor. For each of my three favorites, I found one quote within their respective books that can give you a glimpse into their personalities and, I thought, summed up how they act throughout the series.

  • Ego check. He’d told himself he was going to stop patting himself on the back for all his wonderful qualities. After all, it wasn’t fair to the citizens of the world. They couldn’t help being inferior to him in every way.” – Strider, “The Darkest Surrender”
  • “Paris, the FedEx deliveryman of Pleasure and Fatality.” – Sienna (Paris’s woman), “The Darkest Seduction”
  • “’My greatest flaw is my total lack of flaws. Do you know what a burden it is, being perfect all the time?’” – Torin, “The Darkest Touch”

Thoughts on the series

I love each book and each Lord’s story. Some Lords are hilarious, while others are snarky or always act serious. All of them, though, find their match when they fall in love with women who can handle them and their demons, see them for who they are despite their demons and love them just as fiercely as the men love them. You can’t help falling in love with them all and getting involved with their stories.

All the Lords are kickass warriors, and their women have no problem being kickass partners. The women aren’t your average human beings either. How could they be? If you’re going to be in a relationship with a demon-possessed warrior, then you have to be just as fierce, powerful and/or unique.

Get started and check out the “Lords of the Underworld” series by Gena Showalter. If you enjoy mythology, sexy warriors, romance and the paranormal, then this is the series for you.
