Overview

Fallen angels rule Moscow's seedy underworld, promising untold pleasure to the females who dare to mate them. That promise--and Brends Duranov's own raw sexual power--has hopefuls mobbing the velvet rope outside his elite club G2's.

But Mischka Baran has no intention of hooking up with one of the Fallen. Not even after Brends gives her an unforgettable taste of the sin and seduction he can deliver with those wicked lips. She's after information, not a stint as some fallen angel's toy of the month. What she doesn't know is that with a sadistic killer carving up his brethren, Brends is playing for keeps, hunting the one woman whose bloodline can end the mayhem, whose bond can restore his lost wings.

Meet the Author

A professional technical writer, Anne discovered that getting laid off was actually A Very Good Thing. While looking for her next writing gig, she picked up her pen (well, okay, she used her writing as an excuse to buy a new Apple laptop) and started writing. She soon discovered that writing was uncomfortably similar to sit-ups: add a few more crunches each day, wake up sore, but, by God, you will fit into that bikini. Or finish the book (she’s still working on the bikini). Now she cranks out software manuals during the daylight hours– and writes about alpha shapeshifters the rest of the time.

If I could have given no stars for this book, I would have. What looks like an interesting fantasy concept for a book ends up being just poorly written porn. To be honest, after reading the first couple of pages, and scanning the last few, I knew this was a total waste of my time. Thank goodness it did not cost anything. Having been burned this way just a few too many times with BN free books, I am no longer going to take advantage of their offers unless it is for a classic book with which I am already familiar. It looks like BN (and I'm sure other places will follow suit) places more importance on pushing self-publishing authors on it's customers than truly well-written offerings.

I wasn't sure because of some of the reviews I had read, but now I am looking forward to more. The storyline has great potential for a couple of sequels. The idea of Heaven being taken over by a dark angel and true love and acceptance of differences being the only way to save Heaven AND Earth speaks volumes about what can be accomplished by looking beyond prejudices and seeing individuals for who they are. The eroticism is NOT overdone in my opinion (I have seen just as much in some best sellers) and it adds a little spice without being overly pornographic. Anne Marsh will be on my "watch for" list. Don't let the naysayers scare you off.The plot is well thought out and nicely developed! I am glad I found this one!!!!!

Three thousand years ago, the Dominion angel guardians of Heaven's throne were murdering their brethren rather than protecting them. With proof, Archangel Michael punishes the rebels by removing their wings and souls, and exiling them as half man and half beast goblins with little hope of return unless they are redeemed by their soul mate who must teach these fallen to love. Three millennia later by 2090 none have redeemed their souls. At the exclusive G2 club in M City, Mischka Baron searches for her cousin Pelinor "Pell" Arden who she fears has bonded with a fallen angel, which she knows means they suck at your soul. Club owner Brends Duranov wants her from the moment he senses her, but to his shock, Mischka rejects him. Right before her refusal, Brends learned from his sire Zer that a rogue Goblin Changed and was killing human and the Fallen. Brends vows to find the serial killer, but soon has a stronger motive when Mischka becomes the target; as he believes she is the one for him. Bond With Me is a superb romantic urban fantasy with a strong enchanting world and a solid cast. The story line is a fast-paced suspense thriller as the serial killer and Brends target Mischka for totally opposite reasons. Action-packed, the key element that makes Marsh's land seen genuine is the goblins as these are soulless predatory beasts; of whom, for the most part, are unsympathetic. Harriet Klausner

I'm no prude, but the amount of sex talk in the beginning of the book turned me off, not on. I've read a lot of romance, so when I read the reviews I didn't think much of the ones that were complaining about the amount of sex. But when the word "p*ssy" was used 3 or 4 times in the first 30 pages, along with quite a few instances of "creamy," "creaming," etc., I decided this wasn't for me. I've archived my copy and maybe one day I'll try it again, but I have enough worthwhile things to read at the moment that I don't care to waste my time on erotica masquerading as romance.

So-so story drenched in soft porn

Despite some of negative reviews and ridiculous comparisons to other authors, I found this to be a definate great read. Anne Marsh did a wonderful job creating all the aspects of a paranormal action/mystery/sexy-romance story that we all love to read. If don't like books with (explicit) sex scenes, any adult paranormal book is probably not for you, unless you stay within the youth books (Twilight). This was a great book from beginning to end. I liked the fact that the author ended the story with the assumption that this will be a series, which means.......more to come. I just love series!!! And thanks Anne Marsh for the free read, I will definately check out your other books!!

What price would you pay to save someone you love? Would it be too much to ask for your soul? This is the dilemma Mischka Baran finds herself in when her cousin, Pelinor, goes missing. Before she can find Pell, Brends Duranov, resident club owner and fallen angel, convinces her she must accept his mate bond to ensure her safety from a rogue angel. My first thought when I read the blurb for Bond With Me was "Wow, this sounds darkly seductive". Let me tell you, I was right on the money! Dark and seductive only begin to describe this powerful and creative journey into the Russian underworld. Ms. Marsh had me riveted from the very beginning. Her characters exude strength in personality as well as spirit. I felt like the setting of an inhospitable war torn city and neglected countryside in the year 2090 is representative of the fallen angels or Dominions. After they were accused of heinous crimes, they were judged and sentenced to be separated from their families in Heaven, forced to suffer a lifetime on Earth until one among them finds his bond mate, and feed their internal beast that craves human souls. The differences in Brends attitude from the beginning of the story to the conclusion is like walking out of darkness into a brightly lit room. Brends character is filled with a soul consuming combination of self denial of his inner Beast, anger at the one he holds at fault for the lives of the fallen and a longing to return to Heaven. His one chance at redemption shows up his club needing help. Mischka is the consummate caretaker in her family. She feels it's her duty to always "do the right thing" when secretly she wants to be more carefree like her cousin, Pelinor. Brends brings out the bad girl in Mischka and she in turn reminds him that doing good has its own rewards. While Pell and Dathan are secondary characters in this novel their story is beautiful, poignant and pivotal to the plot. There is a rogue Fallen that does the dirty work and then there is the evil "puppet master" that manipulates the Fallen as well as circumstances to put himself into a position of power. This is a very typical bad guy plan that isn't quite completed by the end of this story. That was just fine by me because that means that hopefully Ms. Marsh is planning a follow-up book that will allow us to revisit Brend, Mischka, Pell, Dathan and the rest of the Fallen to see if they find the redemption they were promised.

Brends Duranov is Fallen Angel called Dominions turned Goblin by Michael for his part in rebellion. Michael offers redemption in the form a soul mate to regain all that is lost in the Fall from Heaven. Brends stop believing in soul mates over millennia ago. Zer tells Brends that there is a rogue killing women much like Michael did and that they need to find this rogue fast. Pellinor (Pell) Arden is seeking protection from a stalker and only Dathan can provide it. Dathan wants Pell to bond with him in return for his protection. Mischka Baran is searching for her cousin Pell in G2's despite her disgust with paranormals. Mischka made a promise and she intends to keep it. Mischka is suppose to meet with Brends but ends up discovering murder soul mates instead. Mischka is horrified by the deaths which remind her of her parents deaths as child. Mischka is straitlaced person that she shows everyone but secretly wants to be wild child instead. Brends knows Mischka's secret desire and intends to show her how good it can be. The rogue is Eilor. Will the killings be stopped? Can Mischka submit to Brends? Are soul mates real? Your answers await you in Bond With Me. This a very unique take on Fallen Angels. I adore Mischka for her wanting to be wild child. I also love the protective streak Brends has for Mischka. I want to claw Eilor's eyes out along with his boss. The best part of this book that is it's setting in Russia something that doesn't happen very often in books with the exception of classics like Anna Karenina. I will definitely read more of this author.
