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.

BOOK REVIEW: Gabriel's Inferno

Sylvain Reynard

Book Series: 


“Look at me. Look into my eyes. I'll give you anything. My body, my soul, Take them. Take everything.”

Rarely does a book leave such an impact on me, but I couldn’t get this story out of my head for days. Sylvain Reynard really takes his time to develop the characters thoughtfully and responsibly, and you are left with the feeling that you know these people, understand the reasoning behind their every action, and you finish their story hungry for more. A stunning love story between two flawed people who seek redemption and a chance at happiness, I was overwhelmed by how well the theme of forgiveness was developed throughout the book, and it made me truly consider my own choices in life.

“When I am an old man and I can remember nothing else, I will remember this moment. The first time my eyes beheld an angel in the flesh. I will remember your body and your eyes, your beautiful face and breasts, your curves and this.” He traced his hand around her navel before dragging it lightly to the top of her lower curls. “I will remember your scent and your touch and how it felt to love you. But most of all, I will remember how it felt to gaze at true beauty, both inside and out. For you are fair, my beloved, in soul and in body, generous of spirit and generous of heart. And I will never see anything this side of heaven more beautiful tham you.”

Gabriel and Julia are two people who love each other body and soul, who offer each other solace and comfort, but above all, unconditional love from the get-go. Their love story is somewhat inspired by the love that Dante felt for Beatrice, which the author describes as a love matching “the fire of a thousand suns,” but the references to Dante’s Inferno are neither heavy nor hard to follow for non-fans of the genre. They simply thread a subtle backdrop to a contemporary love story that somehow feels timeless. Please do yourself a favour and read this beautiful book. I am still breathless from it.
