Blog Tour: Soul Bond by J.S. Harker

J.S. Harker is making her clubhouse debut in support of Soul Bond, her first published novel! Find out more about this paranormal romance, read our 4.5 ❤️ review here and read an excerpt below!

Hey there! I’m JS and my stop here at BMB Reviews is the end of my first blog tour. Writing Soul Bond was a lot of fun and now you can pick up a copy! I’m so happy I get to share Ben and Noah’s story with you.

Though this is my first published novel, I’ve been writing for a long while. At some point, my heroes just started announcing themselves and insisting on being written. For Soul Bond, Noah pretty much showed up with a giant sign saying, “I’m going to steal the thing.” (Which when you flipped it over, it said, “Give me all attention now.”) He’s flippant and a liar and he believes he can get away with anything. Ben stepped in as a reflection in so many ways. He’s a believer and he’s determined.

From the moment they meet, Ben and Noah have problems keeping their hands off each other—something I swear they were doing all on their own. The following excerpt is part of their second meeting.


Undeterred by the falling painting, Ben caught Noah around the waist and hauled him off the floor and into the opposite wall. Their touch sent a warm pulse through Noah. He ignored it and shoved at Ben, but Ben was stronger and larger. Switching tactics, he tried to squirm away.
Ben tightened his hold and pulled Noah through a door. He shut it and pushed Noah up against it, releasing his hold in favor of pinning Noah down. Those muscles were definitely real.
This wasn’t how Noah pictured getting into this position. He pushed, got nowhere, and glared up at Ben. “What the hell are you—”
Ben clamped a hand over his mouth. “Shut. Up.”
Voices echoed. Probably security checking on all the noise they’d made. Ben knew what Noah had done, and yet he wasn’t planning on turning him in. Elias Coldwell had a reputation for punishing intruders. Apparently that was true of the next generation. With all this extra power running through him, Noah had a chance at blasting his way past security and making a clean break. He bit Ben’s finger.
“Fuck!” Ben pulled back and checked his hand for signs of blood.
Noah used the door as leverage and pushed at Ben, gaining precious space between them. He made a grab for the door handle, only Ben caught his wrist and yanked him back. This room had a window. Noah rushed for it. Ben grabbed his jacket sleeve, so Noah twisted free of the garment, pulling the dagger from its hiding spot. The hilt was a cold leash in his hand, and he nearly dropped it.
He could use the dagger on Ben.
No. He was a thief, not a murderer. He shoved the dagger into the back of his waistband and spun toward the window.
With a growl, Ben threw the jacket down and came at Noah, shoving him onto the bed. They struggled, and Ben swept aside each attempt to hit or scratch. He straddled Noah. Losing, and badly, Noah shoved his hand over Ben’s eyes and barked out the command word for his light spell. Bright white light flooded out from his palm.
Ben knocked Noah’s hand aside and pinned his wrists to the bed. The damn spell hadn’t fazed him. Noah bucked, only worsening their position. Twisting back and forth caused Ben to sit on his legs.
Soothing tendrils caressed Noah’s arms, and his muscles relaxed on their own. He sagged into the bed and panted, the magic messing with him again. This position would be great in other circumstances. The mixed signals continued to blare as Ben pressed his hands down and rocked forward. Noah arched up, which he used as an opportunity to pull the dagger free.
Ben hefted it in his hand, bringing it into view. “The Dagger of Nemesis. Not a bad choice. Who’re you planning to kill?”

Stealing his heart.

As a thief and a warlock, Noah survives by using his wit and charm to prey on the privileged. His dangerous criminal boss wants an enchanted dagger belonging to a family of wealthy mages, including their pampered—but handsome—son, Ben. Failing to complete the job will be hazardous to Noah’s survival.

Noah bumps into Ben at a lavish party, and as soon as they meet, the connection’s undeniable, and it goes much further than ordinary attraction. Their bond reaches into their souls, entwining and changing their magic.

Which Noah thinks he can use to get to the dagger. After all, he isn’t sure this soul bond Ben seems so obsessed with is even real.

He also doesn’t count on being caught red-handed…. Or falling in love.

JS Harker loves stories. She was one of those kids who always had a book in her hands and spent many hours adventuring with her siblings. These days she wanders into her imaginary worlds and conjures up tales of magic, passion, and happily-ever-afters. She currently lives in the part of the Midwest that makes Tatooine look interesting by comparison (not that she’s ever obsessively thought about becoming a Jedi or anything).
