In a room where old books and handwritten notes feel as real as people, science and romance mix in unexpected ways. Craig Bouchard, a New York Times Best Selling Author and innovative entrepreneur, invites readers into this nuanced world through his latest work, “Soul Ties of Spies, book one of the “Natalia’s Game” trilogy,” where romance, espionage, and quantum physics meet head on.
“Soul Ties of Spies” has garnered a diverse following, reflecting its genre-defying content. Blogger Karen Dee captures the book’s essence in her Instagram post: “It’s a love story, a spy story with awesome quantum physics thrown in there. Natalia is a smart, fierce, kick-ass woman with teleporting and astral dreaming skills. Crew is a brilliant spy and quantum physics expert who falls for Natalia. They become spy partners and lovers while discovering a deep soul-tie connection.”
Bouchard’s book uniquely blends espionage, romance, and diplomacy inside a world where the CIA, FSB, Scotland Yard and the Romanian SRI must work together to save the world. Is this a new imprint for the way things should be?
As a business leader and literary figure, Bouchard brings two demanding skills together, as evidenced by his latest work and past achievements, including co-founding six companies and being a finalist for the Platts/S&P CEO of the Year Award in the global metals industries in 2018. His online presence is another sign of his broad impact, with a staggering 6.5 million hits on Google and 50,000 followers on social media sites.
Exploring the Depths of Mind and Emotions
In simple terms, one might say that his newest book, “Soul Ties of Spies,” explores how the mind might reach across to an alternative universe. It proposes that hope in that world can be as powerful as gravity or electromagnetism.
“It’s a word puzzle that must be perfectly constructed to be enjoyable in a book or a film,” explains Bouchard. “Such a puzzle creates intrigue. I wanted to write a modern love story that captures the mind. That’s hard to accomplish inside one genre.”
Karen Dee complements Bouchard’s intentions: “This book was so thrilling I just geeked out reading it. It’s smart, compelling, and will keep you glued to each page.”
With this book, the author and innovator creates a magnetic narrative that educates as much as it entertains. Complex scientific concepts find an audience through an easily digestible and engaging story flavored with love, intrigue, and even betrayal.

In this story, Bouchard portrays life as a complex, beautiful mess of intersections and divergences. Readers find his characters loveable, and they navigate that complexity in an adventure filled with international intrigue, romance, and conflict.
