Gabriel’s Inferno and Gabriel’s Rapture
by Sylvain Reynard
by Sylvain Reynard
Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well-respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption. When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide. An intriguing and sinful exploration of seduction, forbidden love and redemption, "Gabriel's Inferno" is a captivating and wildly passionate tale of one man's escape from his own personal hell as he tries to earn the impossible...forgiveness and love.
Now these are good reads after Fifty Shades of Grey. This story is based on a sexy professor who also you will learn has some power and a very angel-like female character contrast. At first when I was reading this I was not sure if I could follow; it talks a lot about Dante’s work in literature, and I was no were near an English major. I was lost on the whole Dante talk but after reading I did Google it and I learned a little more because it was really sexy. The main male character Gabriel speaks a lot in what I call ‘Dante talk’ to his lady love and lost some of the enduring comments, but knowing that was nice - I at least understood that much. I did like the journey of the story; it was well written and you did not know where things were going until you were right up on the situation. It was an easy read and if you want something soothing and gentle this book is for you.
The first book not really any sexual content but the second not so much. For adults only.
