From New York Times bestselling author Sylvain Reynard comes the first novel in the Gabriel's Inferno series, a haunting, unforgettable tale of one man’s salvation and one woman’s sensual awakening—NOW A FILM FROM PASSIONFLIX!
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.
Moving Love Story
This is one of the most magnificent love stories I have ever read. The characters have a spiritual depth that you don't find in many contemporary romances. They are on a journey that changes who they are as people and how they define love to each other. This book is about kindness, love, redemption, and salvation. The reader will see shades of the writings of Dante, Lewis, Tolkien, and Greene and as the characters embark on their journey of the discover of love for each other, the reader is swept away too.
This was an awesome book... I couldn't put it down. I love how they made references to a divine comedy and other classic italian love stories...i felt like i was there in italy in my own love story...
This book was a delight. I couldn't put it down. I have NEVER left a review and felt compelled to once I completed this book.
Please stop comparing it to 50 Shades. These books have nothing in common other than originating from Twilight fan fiction.
This book has meaning and direction, a purpose. Life lessons and reminders to what is important in life abound in this book - without being preachy.
My favorite quote from the book is:
“Why not think that sometimes—just sometimes—you can overcome evil with silence? And let people hear their hatefulness in their own ears, without distraction. Maybe goodness is enough to expose evil for what it really is, sometimes.”
Maybe I'll try that approach the next time someone is unkind....
Last thought, READ THIS BOOK!
