    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?

    Katheryne says: "I swoon for the Professor!"

    Where does Gabriel's Rapture rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The two book series ranks at the very top. This should be made into a film....I'm sure it would rival "Gone with the Wind".


    What did you like best about this story?

    The personalization of the human condition, how we relate to one another. Second and even third chances to make wrongs right.


    Have you listened to any of John Morgan’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, Gabriel's Inferno..he is beyond awesome! Each character took on their own personality (became three dimensional), because of the way he narrated this book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    There are no words! I couldn't put it down...even lost some sleep over this one.
    This is by far and away the best series I have ever read! A must read


    Any additional comments?

    I'll be waiting for this authors next book....I will be reading all this authors works.
    This series was inspired me to read more on Dante as well. I could relate to many of the scenes in Italy having been there..it sure made me hunger to return! Very romantic!!!!!!

    The crash of a Dallas-bound jet wasn't just a tragedy to TV reporter Avery Daniels; it was an act of fate that handed her a golden opportunity to further her career. Mistaken for a glamorous, selfish woman named Carole Rutledge, the badly injured Avery would find that plastic surgery had given her Carole's face, a famous senatorial candidate for a husband, and a powerful Texas dynasty for in-laws.

    It keep me interested and guessing as to who the villain was and I was totally wrong and blown away at the end.

    The first time I have listened to Dick Hill 9I think)


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Jack's wife and daughter getting their act together


    Any additional comments?

    I liked Dick Hill narrating and the author's story line so much that I just got three more of their books.

    Dr. Ali Torveau knows just how fragile life can be - she sees death and tragedy every day in the trauma unit. Battling the dark forces of fate is her life's work and she doesn't want or need anything else, certainly nothing as transient as love. Plenty of women try to change her mind, but she never has any trouble saying no. Not until the day firefighter Beau Cross shows up in her ER and sets Ali’s carefully ordered world aflame.

    Would you try another book from Radclyffe and/or Nicole Vilencia?

    Not unless the book summary gave me more detail about the book


    What was most disappointing about Radclyffe’s story?

    The book summary did not get evidence that it was about two gay women

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES, AFTER THEY READ THE OTHER 6


    What other book might you compare An Echo in the Bone to and why?

    GAME OF THRONES: BECAUSE OF THE DETAILED DESCRIPTIONS OF EACH OF THE CHARACTERS.


    Which character – as performed by Davina Porter – was your favorite?

    I LOVED JAMIE BUUUUT THEY WERE ALL RIVETING. SO MANY TEARS AND LAUGHS.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE ADVISE IF AND WHEN THIS SAGA CONTINUES. I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH THE QUICK CONCLUSION OF THE BOOK. I SAY CONCLUSION BECAUSE THIS JUST CAN'T BE THE END OF THIS OUTLANDER SERIES.

    Nicholas Duncan is a semi-retired shipping magnate who resides in idyllic Beautiful Bay in Indonesia, where he is known as the old patriarch of the islands. He is grieving the loss of his beautiful Eurasian wife, Anna, and is suffering for the first time from disturbing flashbacks to WWII, the scene of their first meeting and early love. His other wartime lover is the striking Marg Hamilton, a powerful and influential political player in Australia who has remained close to Nick.

    Where does Fishing for Stars rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    LOTS OF TEARS


    What did you like best about this story?

    THE STORY OF WHAT WAR DOES TO PEOPLE. NOT TO MENTION THE TERRIBLE THINGS THAT PARENTS CAN SOMETIMES DO THAT PERMANENTLY AFFECT OUR MINDS.


    Which character – as performed by Humphrey Bower – was your favorite?

    ANNA, BY FAR SHE HAD EVERY REASON TO BE THE TYPE OF PERSON SHE TURNED OUT TO BE.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    YES!!!!! MOSTLY CRY. IT ALSO CAUSED ME TO LOSE SLEEP AND BECOME VERY DEPRESSED.


    Any additional comments?

    IF THIS AUTHORS' GOAL WAS TO CAUSE ME TO DESPISE MARG AND DISLIKE A SELFISH SELF CENTERED MAN, WHO BELIEVED HE COULD/SHOULD HAVE IT ALL, THEN IT WORKED. NICK WAS SO INTO HIS OWN SELF I WANTED SOMEONE TO KNOCK HIM OUT....AND THEN DO AWAY WITH MARG. WHILE THE BOOK HELD MY ATTENTION (MAINLY BECAUSE OF ANNA) I WOULD NEVER CONSIDER IT FOR A REREAD.

    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.

    If you could sum up Gabriel's Inferno in three words, what would they be?

    THE HUMAN CONDITION


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gabriel's Inferno?

    WHEN HE RECALLS TO HIS "BEATRICE" WHAT HIS FATHER HAD TOLD HIM ABOUT WORSHIPING ONE WOMAN FOR A LIFETIME WITH HIS BODY.


    What does John Morgan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    HE GAVE THE STORY SO MUCH MEANING AND HIS DELIVERY WAS SUPERB.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    GABRIEL'S INFERNO (THE HUMAN CONDITION)


    Any additional comments?

    THIS STORY WAS SO TOUCHING. WRONG DECISIONS, PATRONIZING ONE ANOTHER NOT KNOWING THAT HUMANS CONDITION. SHYNESS, EMBARRASSMENT, FORGIVENESS (WHICH ONLY UNCONDITIONAL LOVE CAN BRING). AND FOR THE MAN AND WOMAN WITH ANY MORAL CONSCIENCE THE NEED FOR REDEMPTION. CARING FOR ONE ANOTHER. I COULD NOT PUT THIS BOOK DOWN. I THANK GOD MS. REYNALD WROTE A SECOND BOOK AND I CAN'T WAIT TO START IT. ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS I'VE EVER LISTENED TO.
