National best-selling author Sylvain Reynard continues the story of Gabriel and Julia, two lovers bound together by their darkest desires.
But those very desires may destroy them....
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 listener’s mind, body, and soul, forever.

I love to listen to audiobooks. It is great when the narrators get into the story and really bring the characters to life.
I think that there is no real comparison between 50 Shades and Gabriel. I loved 50 Shades and I really like Gabriel and Julian's Story as well. These books are not as intense as I thought they would be but still a really great story.
The separation and re-connection of Gabriel and Julia!!
When Gabriel took Julia to the apple orchard and proposed!!
I loved this book! It was so good, i listened to it all in one sitting. Some twists were unpredictable, others you knew were coming. it was worth the credit.
1st book was great, this book was not a good read at all... Ugh... don't buy
loved book two! We learn more about each character and the narration was perfect. I can't wait to listen to the final book to see how Gabriel and Julianne's story ends!
John Morgan makes it believably enthralling and hard to stop listening. Keep writing more novels!
Say something about yourself!

Them falling in love
The entire book
In my review of Gabriel's Inferno I mentioned that this book was eloquently written and so smart. The author did not fail in carrying that to the second book. Gabriel and Julia are wonderful characters and though Gabriel can come off so sweet that my teeth hurt he also can be brooding and pompous but it does it so well you cant help but love him.
I've learned a few things from this series: 1. is that if you are familiar with the Italian poet Dante and Beatrice's story along with other famous poets then this is the book for you and you will appreciate the quotes used throughout the story. I'm not familiar with famous poet's quotes so I had to really think about the meanings of the quotes and how it applies to the storyline. 2. is that you have to have A LOT of patience. This book is not only long, but aggrevating for me at times because I have little patience and I found myself pounding my fists on my desk in frustration because Julia is so naive and insecure with her relationship with Gabriel. I can't believe the things she says or feels after all they've been through. 3. but alas, if you have patience to listen to the first book, then you will have patience to listen to this book which will result in a happy ending. It was an enjoyable listen during the end and I look forward to the next book in the series.
