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.

This book is written in such a way that it keeps your attention. I finally had to turn it off at 2:30 am, so that I could get some sleep before the next day. I'd recommend begin reading it on a weekend you're off work, because you're not going to want to put it down.
The story line is excellent, the narration is the best I've listened to. I can't say one bad thing about this book.
People who can't read well.
I don't know, his voice was too low...the female voice was creepy
The middle...it just started to drag on and on.
Also, people don't really talk like this do they? Lot's of "I will call you" instead of I'll all you...most people use contractions when they speak, but not in this book!
this was a 3.75.
I enjoyed this book but I think I will like book 2 much better. Julianne & Gabriel are two tortured souls who long for someone to just love and rescue them out of their own personal hell.
They both suffer from a lack of self-worth for various events that transpired in their younger years. Their family situation was pretty crappy and after suffering neglect, Julianne & Gabriel's level of their self-loathing was a bit much.
Their romance was a tad slow to develop, but i guess it was important for them to trust the other and eventually themselves. i am glad they found each other, but I would love for them to find counselling too!
supporting casts. I liked Rachel & Richard. While I didn't like Scott, I understood where he was coming from. I can tell Richard and Grace probably neglect Scott in order to lavish Gabriel with attention. That kind of resentment doesn't evaporate just becuase Gabriel got himself together later. Julianne's dad, well, the jury is still out on him. I want to see what he does from here, before I can be okay with him.
I look forward to some emotional and mental healing for Dante and his Beatrice
i liked this book more than 50 SOG, but less than Bared to You. Plot was plausible and has happened to people in real life. If you are a fan of the books listed above, buy this book.
New author and read for me and I found it VERY,VERY, enjoyable - the narrator John Morgan ( Whew!!!) I don't have the word to describe his voice.. I listened to the book in one day... Yep!! Yep!! and I will be downloading the next one..
I would have have read the book a couple of times and I like the story.
When Julia takes Gabriel home drunk.
I like his deep voice as that is what I would imagine Gabriel sounding like. He brings the story to life very well.
I have read the book before but no extreme reaction really just a well rounded book.
I loved this book! The character development is very similar to Fifty Shades and Twilight. It focuses on the development of the relationship, rather than physical intimacy. This was a little frustrating but worth the tension. There were a lot of Dante and Botticelli references, so I can see how someone who is not familiar with those topics would not like the book. For me, this is one of the best romance novels I've read in awhile.
The narrator was also wonderful. He had a wide range of voices and tones to signify different characters and moods. His voice was soothing to the ear.
