Christina Bauer thinks that fantasy books are like bacon: they just make life better. All of which is why she writes romance novels that feature demons, dragons, wizards, witches, elves, elementals, and a bunch of random stuff that she brainstorms while riding the Boston T. Oh, and she includes lots of humor and kick-ass chicks, too. Christina lives in Newton, MA with her husband, son, and semi-insane golden retriever, Ruby. She loves to connect with her fans at Plus, you can get a FREE copy of Christina’s novella, BEVERLY HILLS VAMPIRE, when you sign up for her personal newsletter: ***Not available in stores***

Christina is the author of the bestselling Angelbound series about Heaven, Hell a

A kick-ass heroine who's both a jaguar shifter AND a descendant of Sherlock Holmes? What's not to love!?! Plus, the story is packed with intrigue, action, mystery and a touch of romance. Bottom line--fans of Mercy Falls will love A STUDY IN SHIFTERS!

William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

“The human mind has a primitive ego defense mechanism that negates all realities that produce too much stress for the brain to handle. It’s called Denial.”
Dan Brown, Inferno

“Self editing is the path to the dark side. Self editing leads to self delusion, self delusion leads to missed mistakes, missed mistakes lead to bad reviews. Bad reviews are the tools of the dark side.”
Eric T. Benoit

“NO reader has ANY obligation to an author, whether it be to leave a review or to write a "constructive" one. I put out a product. You are consumers of that product. Since when does that mean you have to kiss my ass? Hey, I like Pop-Tarts and eat them a few times a year; since when does that mean I'm obligated to support Kellogg's in any way except legally purchasing the Pop-Tarts before I eat them? I wasn't aware that purchasing and consuming a product meant I was under some sort of fucking thrall in which I'm only allowed to either praise the Pop-Tart (which to be honest isn't hard, especially the S'mores flavor) or, if I am going to criticize a flavor, offer a specific and detailed analysis as to why, phrased in as inoffensive and gentle a manner as possible so as not to upset the gentle people at Kellogg's."

Christina Bauer You are so very welcome! Thanks for reaching out and letting me know that you enjoy my work!


Sherry Hi Christina, thank you for accepting my friend request. I've already read The first book of AngleBound Origins, Angelbound. I just love Myla, she's tough as nails, with humorous sarcastic comments along the way, and Lincoln 1st yummy and a perfect match for Myla. (Just my little opinion). The rest are on my TBR-list. I like having all the books first, so I've preordered the ones ready to be released soon. Thanks again Sher

Lucinda Dear Christina,
Thank you so much for acepting my friend request! I am looking forward to adding your books to my TBR list.
Kind Regards
Lucinda x

Christina Bauer Thanks for the smile, Shelby! Best wishes back at you :-)

Christina Bauer Thanks for reaching out, Sharon! DYING to tell you what happens next, but Inky the Monster won't let me :-) I'll keep you posted when the next book hits NetGalley!

Sharon L Hi Chrisrina,
thank you so much for accepting my friend vite :)

I really enjoyed Angelbound, and I can't wait to see what you write up next.

Even though Angelbound's ending was somewhat bittersweet, I know Myla & Lincoln will be OK (at least, I hope they will)
