Sylvain Reynard is a brilliant writer, a master with words who draws you into his story on the first page. I never wanted it to end. The saga is a journey about two compelling people, Julianne and Gabriel whose love survives through years of uncertainty and times of sorrow and loss. I fell in love with Gabriel. It also made me want to brush up on my Italian and remember my many trips to my favorite country to vacation, Italy. The reader will also be educated in the story about Dante and Beatrice during the Italian Renaissance. SR is currently writing book 3 in this unforgetable love story. I anxiously await its release.
My favorite character has to be Gabriel. His troubled journey shows his strength to dispel his addictions and achieve something better in life. It results in his finding his one true love. Gabriel is a man who loves like no other. He's willing to make great sacrifices because of his deep love for Julianne.
I loved John Morgan's narration. He's a gifted actor. His deep voice made one visualize the male characters more distinctly, especially Gabriel. I could sense his powerful image. As far as the female characters, a little less. It took a while to get used to it.
I had a box of tissues next to me because I did cry quite often. There were times I laughed as well. SR is such a master with his words that one minute I had tears running down my cheeks, the next I was laughing. And, quite often I was swooning because of Gabriel's expertise in lovemaking. OH MY!
I have listened to this story three times and will listen to it again. I cannot get enough of Professor Gabriel Owen Emerson and Julianne in this enduring love story.
This book is my second favorate.
Without giving away the story that would be hard to say. Too many to mention.
This one is better than the first one I listened to.
Yup...when Gabriel disappeared to save Julias academic career.
Worth using my credit for this audiobook. :)
this story was incomplete, is there a third book? Is this a spoiler?
Learn a new language.
Pretty high.. maybe a 8 out of 10
Different elements remind me of other books like Reflected In You.
Same as the first book... just did not go with the book. The voice just didn't feel right for this one.
Will do anything for books!
Captivating, Emotional, Overwhelming
I loved all the depth in the story. There are lots of twists and turns!
Great voice, good inflection, great pronunciation!
Tell us about yourself!
Oh hell yes
Just finished the series. Beautiful characters. Haunting, powerful, innocent and yet so provocative. What a clever writer you are
yes Gabriel's Inferno this man has a sexy voice wow !!!!
Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student, Julia Mitchell. Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the raptures of sex. But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover. When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he succumb to Dante's fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?
In Gabriel's Rapture, the brilliant sequel to the wildly successful debut novel, Gabriel's Inferno, Sylvain Reynard weaves an exquisite love story that will touch the reader's mind, body, and soul, forever.
The story was fanstastic and believable. It made you belive in true love and soul mates.
I loved it all, but the most memorable was when Gabriel found Julia again.
Ever lasting love
Can't say enough. A must read.
the end and how he gave up a lot for what he wanted the most and became this good person.
A love story does not get any better! You will love this passionate love story. It is worth 2 plus credits.
Say something about yourself!
I was told to read these books as a follow up from 50 and Bared to You...it wasn't, so if that is what you are looking for move on. The first 8 hours of this book could have been summed up in about 20 minutes, I have no idea why it dragged on for SOOO long, but once it got going it was a sweet love story, and the performance was done well.
