Publisher's Summary

From national best-selling author Sylvain Reynard comes the haunting, unforgettable tale of one man’s salvation and one woman’s sensual awakening....

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.

    Story
    "Long, boring, written for the naughty victorians."

    I can't get thru the first part. Yuck, Yuck, Yuck.
    Over done, wrong narrator. This book is not for me at all.

    "Excellent"

    I read this on Kindle prior to its' release on Audio. Now listening to it. Love the audio version and I was surprised by the male narrator but it so works.

    Yes, I am addict... I love books, I read and listen and just can't get enough. I do not like non fiction because it is too much like learning and I would rather dive in and be transported to a new world or adventure!

    Story
    "This might be my favorite book ever!"
    Would you listen to Gabriel's Inferno again? Why?

    Oh yes and I can't wait for the next book!


    What other book might you compare Gabriel's Inferno to and why?

    There really is no other book that I have read that compares to this one. It does, however , make me curious about actually reading some of Dante's work to understand more of what the characters were talking about and the story behind it.


    What about John Morgan’s performance did you like?

    Hi voice is sexy and sensual and perfect for Gabriel. He did all of the characters voices very well and I always knew exactly who was talking. He's one of the few male narrators that doesn't make the female characters sound like simpering idots.


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

    This was so wildly good that at one point I woke up at three in the morning and had to finish a chapter before I could go back to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the most delicious book I have ever read. It's a hopeless romantics dream, redemption, second chances and true love.

    "Loved it!"
    What did you love best about Gabriel's Inferno?

    The characters and pretty much the storyline itself..


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

    When he realized who she was.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The voice just did not work for this book. I listened to it twice but still could not get into that voice... good thing I loved the storeyline!


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

    Given enough time..yes. It was hard to turn it off everynight!

    I found myself completely engulfed with this love story. While it does play on the classic professor & grad student story line it is a beautiful story & done so tastefully. I am so excited to finish the series!

    Story
    "INCREDIBLE"
    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.

    "Wonderful story!"
    What made the experience of listening to Gabriel's Inferno the most enjoyable?

    The voice of John Morgan went perfectly with the story. Listening to the story put you right with the characters.


    What about John Morgan’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Morgan's voice worked very well with the story. I felt like Mr. Morgan's voice was the voice of Gabriel.


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

    Absolutely! But it was a story that I wanted to take my time with. I listened to the books over a week. I read the book a few times and I can see listening to the audio version a few more....


    Any additional comments?

    Gabriel's Inferno is one of my favorite books of all time! I hope to read more by Sylvain Reynard.

    Story
    "Snore....."

    This is about a guy who is the son of a hooker ( I think ) orphaned at 9 found roaming the halls of a hospital after his mom died where he was then found and adopted by a family and who later became addicted to drugs but then got clean and became a pompous bow tie wearing professor at a prestigous college. Enter adopted younger sister's best friend who fell madly in love with said professor when she was 17 and is now the student of this professor who wants her in return because she is so "pure" but she can't decide if she really wants him after pining for him for the last 8 years. And they have to sneak around due to the whole professor/student thing while she is deciding. The end. This is summed up in about 5 minutes then the rest of the tale is drug out for 24 hours listening and its just plain 'ol boring. It's the whole angst thing--"should I but I'm scared-want to but I don't know how-and in the meantime while I'm beating that dead horse lets hang from the rafters and have crazy monkey sex". Not only is the plot tired the story is just boring. Oh, yea--and she calls him Dante and he calls her Beatrice and a guy named Paul calls her Rabbit. And although they speak to each as if they are from the 1800's the f word is thrown in every once in a while to current it up a little. I'd be laughing if it wasn't so boring and unrealistic.
