Blogtour: Wolf of the Northern Star by SJ Himes

WoTNS banner Title: Wolf of the Northern Star 
Author: SJ Himes 
Series: The Wolfkin Saga, #2 
Release Date: June 15th 2017 

Genre: Gay Paranormal Shifter Romance


Ghost, once known as the cub Luca, is finally home. Back among his kind and learning what it means to be both a man and a shaman, Ghost battles the expectations of his people, his family, and the pressures of a society that is both foreign and familiar. His power is greater than any seen before, dwarfing that of even the legendary Shaman Gray Shadow—and his union with Kane places him in the center of a controversy that rattles wolfkin society around the world.
Kane, greater alpha and Heir to Black Pine Clan, has finally defeated the traitor and murderer that destroyed the heart of Black Pine years before. Freed at last from guilt and pain, Kane has a new enemy to face: his own people. Placed on trial for violation of Law and blasphemy, Kane will have to fight to the death to preserve his bond with Ghost and keep his mate and people safe.

The soulbond between Ghost and Kane is forged by the creator and Goddess of the wolfkin. Usually, a sacred and treasured union that honors the pair and their clans, this soulbond is seen not as a gift, but a threat to eons of tradition and Clan Law.

The union of a Shaman and Alpha is anathema—but how to reconcile that belief when it is the wolfkin Goddess who forged it? Can Ghost and Kane save themselves, preserve their bond, and find a new future when the laws of the ancient past threaten to tear them apart?

*This book is part of a series and should not be read as a standalone. Prior books should be read to understand content. 104,000 words*

WoTNS teaser 3


“Easy, little wolf,” Kane whispered before taking his mouth in a wet, deep kiss. “Shower first….” Ghost rolled his hips, and Kane grabbed his ass with a muffled curse, his fingers dipping into the crease. “Bed, now.”
Kane took a few steps and fell forward. Ghost felt the impact of the bed beneath them, but his mind, mouth and hands were too occupied with the hard, chiseled frame of his alpha to care. Teeth latched onto the side of his neck and bit down, holding him still as large hands spread his legs, lifting his thighs and hips. Kane held him still with his fangs while fingers explored along his crease and pressed inside. It burned, and Ghost whined, but he panted for more. A dark chuckle came from Kane as he released his neck, a long tongue lapping at the deep impressions of his teeth in Ghost’s skin. Ghost arched up, every motion of his body demanding more.

That place in his mind where Kane dwelt grew with each touch and taste. The walls between them fell. Ghost could not define the boundaries of their bodies or souls. He was light and fire, heat and desire. Kane growled, a deep rumble that purred through his body and mind. Ghost arched into his mate, crying out in desperate entreaty. His eyes were blinded by the infinite well of stars and light that dwelled in their joined souls.
He fell, and took Kane with him.
A crimson fire engulfed him. Kane’s fire. His alpha, his mate, his everything, burned and consumed him, renewing him with every touch. Pressure and a sharp sting made Ghost pull back from the infinite, eyes blinking up at Kane as his mate entered his body with a slow, long thrust. Ghost smiled, overcome with a sense of completion. This is what he needed. He would always need this.
He wrapped his legs around Kane’s waist, lifting into each thrust. Dark eyes that held embers glowed above him, wet lips and sharp fangs nipped and licked at his mouth. Ghost opened, accepting everything his alpha had to give him. Kane groaned, and the driving pace of his hips increased, both reaching the peak together. It was far too quick and yet not quick enough. Ghost howled, hot liquid splashing between them as Kane grabbed the back of Ghost’s head by the hair and yanked his head back, slamming his hips against his ass until he came with a roar. Teeth marked his neck, holding Ghost still while Kane came within his body, thick, hot spurts searing his insides with welcome heat.
The bed shook, a shiver of wood and creaking boards, metal springs twanging softly. Sweat ran down his face, stinging his eyes, and Ghost blinked away the resulting tears, laughing quietly.
Kane lay upon him, limp and hot. Ghost smiled at the sight, inordinately pleased at his alpha mate’s exhaustion from fucking him. Fucking. Ghost loved that word. It was a singularly human word, full of different meanings and used in almost every way, but this version he loved the most. Fucking with Kane was worth every frustration and worry since his return.
“Not fucking, little wolf,” Kane whispered against his neck, tongue lathing the spot he’d bitten. Their thoughts were each other’s. Unique, yet the same. “No matter how eager I am for you, what we share is never so simple as fucking.”

About the Author

I'm a self-employed writer who stresses out about the silliest things, like whether or not I got my dog the best kind of snack and the fact my kindle battery tends to die when I'm at the best part in a book. I write mainly gay romance, erotica, and urban fantasy, with ocasional forays into contemporary and paranormal. I love a book heavy on plot and character evolution, and throw in some magic, and that's perfection. My current series are: The Beacon Hill Sorcerer, Bred For Love (as Revella Hawthorne), and The Wolfkin Saga. My last two novels in the Beacon Hill Sorcerer won 3rd Place in the Gay Fantasy category for the 2016 Rainbow Awards.

I live in New Orleans, where the personalities are big and loud and so are the bugs! New Orleans is rich in cultural history, and the flavor and music of the City is impossible to hide. Before that, I lived all over the United States: Tampa, Western Massachusetts, Indianapolis, and on and on.... I'm a nomad, and I've yet to find a place that calls to me strongly enough to become home. My faithful travel companions are my dog Micah, the numerous voices in my head who insist they all get put on paper, and the wind at my back.
