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.

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.

    "People don't talk like this."

    It was just O.K. for me. I caught myself rolling my eyes a lot. I will not be listening to the 2nd book, it just wasn't for me.

    Story
    "Heart Stopping ..."
    Would you listen to Gabriel's Inferno again? Why?

    The first half of the book,the attraction between Julia and Gabriel kept me coming back to the book for more. The second half of the book was so very difficult to stop reading as I just wanted to know what came next. I love their story ... And I loved the references to Dante, the Italian, the artwork, the romance. It connect mind, body and soul. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

    "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.

    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.

    Story
    "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!

    "Loved It!"

    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.
