Publisher's Summary

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 am so in love with Gabriel!!"

    I had my doubts that this book could be as good as the first, but Sylvain Reynard did not dissappoint!!! I simply did not want this book to end; and I cannot wait for the third book!!

    The narrater, John Morgan is absolutely wonderful. Between the beautiful love story and his sexy voice, I was mesmerized!!! This is one book that I will definitely listen to many times.

    "LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this story...."
    What made the experience of listening to Gabriel's Rapture the most enjoyable?

    If you've read Gabriel's Inferno, and you got hooked like I did, you know how important it is to finish out the story. I had to find out if they made it. I had to see if he married his Beatrice. Finding out if the fairy tale romance had a happy ending was important to me.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Gabriel. I liked that he was so wonderful to her after he found out who she was. He treated her like a princess.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The time in Italy.


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

    Get ready for some steamy action...

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

    like the first book in series better but narrator has voice to sit back and enjoy. I would not have gotten same pleasure from reading either of the titles.

    "Still Under the Spell of Gabriel's Rapture"

    I just finished reading this second entry in the Gabriel Emerson series, and I am so sorry it is over! I haven't even deleted it yet, because I do not want to come out from the spell it has me in. Fascinating yet flawed characters you care about, want-to-be-there locations, and all given depth and sensual appeal with the beautiful language of poetry , mouthwatering descriptions of food, and a background of music that can be quickly downloaded from Amazon (I doubt I am the only one out there with a Gabriel Emerson play list!!!); all adding up to a listening experience that can virtually surround you.

    If you loved the first book, you will love this one even more and will probably wind up, like me, eagerly awaiting the next installment...it can't come soon enough for me!The narrator of Gabriel's Rapture, John Michael Morgan, is the perfect voice to tell the story; his American English is perfect, without any suggestion of regionalismHis readings of scripture and poetry, as well as romantic declarations and sexual descriptions sound natural and moving and are delivered with complete believability. His narration is just....well.....elegant! He really was the perfect choice.

    Readers will find so many aspects of both of the Emerson books to be familiar ones:tensions, fears, worries, desires and longings. If you are like me, you will want to be in the places that the characters visit and inhabit. I really appreciate the spiritual life that the characters have and that they grow in, particularly Gabriel, as Juliann becomes an anchor to him, drawing him into the light. How great is it to read about characters who do not feel that their growing in their relationship with God precludes them from the delights of the senses; but increases the wonder and beauty of what they share, be it food or music or sex. I also thank the author for including the main characters coming to terms with who they are through therapy, since some of the advice given to Juliann, regarding the fact that partners bring different things to a relationship, and even if one person does not bring an equal amount of financial support to the relationship, that one thing alone is not the measure of their worth or importance. I am not expressing it as well as the therapist, but the advice is some thing that really helped me with feelings I have been dealing with for years. It may sound silly, but those few paragraphs were like wings to me, and very literally took a weight off of me.

    Well, enough, I know...I will just say that for so many reasons, I love this series, and this book even more than the first. I will be waiting for the third!!!!! Recommended, to say the very least!!

    "Love this book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gabriel's Rapture to be better than the print version?

    I much prefer audio books. The narator is great!


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

    When he asked Julia to marry him.


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

    I'm not sure if I have listened to him before but I think he's great. He has a wonderful voice and is good at different voices.


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

    If I could have I would. But it was split between 2 days.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope there is a thrid one. I can't wait!

    "Wonderful sequel"
    Would you listen to Gabriel's Rapture again? Why?

    YES, I sure would. Loved listening to the narration of this great book.


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

    When Gabriel asked Julia to marry him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The very first time Gabriel and Julia make love. It was so long coming and he was so sweet and romantic. He really made the experience perfect for her.


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

    Yes, Professor???


    Any additional comments?

    What I liked most about this AND the first book was that they are both complete books that have very satisfying endings. I hate "cliff-hanger" endings.
