Od as Gabriel s Inferno The book is full of thoughtful ideas about life sin forgiveness and love In Gabriel s Rapture the author connected love and sex in most beautiful way and the way he sees marriage is absolutely wonderful The book has a very substantial effect on me It made me cry and it made me think a lot about the life I don t remember feeling such a strong compassion for main characters as I had when reading this book I really admire Sylvain Reynard for his ability of forming such a beautiful compliments in this book Moreover he book I really admire Sylvain Reynard for his ability of forming such a beautiful compliments in this book Moreover he a master of teasing and all of the sex scenes were so real and so tasteful Some of the compliments said by Professor to Julia made even me blushed when reading it You must have been designed and not merely made The author succeeded again in creating realistic characters Gabriel and Julia are not perfect and they both made various mistakes in this book But this is how life oes how we learn Gabriel has changed a lot comparing to Gabriel s Inferno and I was so happy to read that he was able to find his peace finally This book about love and forgiveness touched my heart and I am sure I will re read it couple of times SR thanks a lot for enable us to read such a wonderful storyMORE REVIEWS ON MY BLOG Reading Is My Breathing This was the joy that the world sought sacred and pagan all at once A union between two dissimilars into a seamless oneJulianne and Gabriel are together at last Holidaying in Italy Gabriel is lovingly The Horse in Celtic Culture guiding Julianne into the pleasures and intimacies of a sexual relationship She proves an apt student But with their return to the university both Gabriel and Julianne are caught up in the administration s investigations into misconduct and inappropriate behaviour between staff and students One of the strengths of both Gabriel s Inferno and Gabriel s Rapture is the many references to food wine languages art architecture music literature and the knowledge of the local shops and eateries of thereat cities of the world Even fashion and surprisingly women s fashion does not escape the notice of author Sylvain Reynard Having read uite a few romance novels by many different authors across most of the sub enres of romance I have never come across any author who is so well versed in the fine arts with such a comprehensive knowledge of literature The 12th century love story of Abelard and Heloise for example is not commonly known I think but it was cleverly written into this story and parallels in many respects Gabriel and Julianne s own love storyThis book also focuses on Gabriel s introspection his uest for forgiveness and redemption Not only emotionally and psychologically but spiritually Where the conflict in Gabriel s Inferno was mostly played out between Gabriel and Julianne this time the conflict comes from a number of external sources Their love is established yet still faces obstacles Gabriel s enerosity and his Every Boys Dream gentleness towards Julianne is demonstrated in a number of ways The love scenes though not steamy are sensual and romanticDespite my enjoyment of Gabriel s Rapture there are a few complaints Julianne is very teary and at times immature for a twenty three year old This may be the author s way of demonstrating her innocent nature but it does sometimesrate Gabriel is overly protective almost cloying and treating her as if she too fragile and precious There were also some unanswered uestions about the final outcomes for Christa and PaulFinally just a word about the author In my opinion very few male authors can write romance well This is not a sexist remark but a personal observation after reading many romances I can count on one hand the number of romance novels by male authors that I have enjoyed Both Mr Reynard s novels are in that number Perhaps other male romance authors simply don t write to my taste in novels Whatever the reason I have been mostly disappointed in romances written by menI have no idea if Mr Reynard is as urbane intelligent educated and worldly as Prof Emerson but he certainly comes across this way in his writing I m a little bit awestruck at a man who knows the story "Of Abelard And Heloise Who Knows About "Abelard and Heloise who knows about certain dress worn by the late Grace Kelly in the 50s a Bordelle chemise a Michael Kors bag and most importantly that no civilised person would drink coffee with milk after breakfastAfter reading Gabriel s Inferno I was convinced author Sylvain Reynard was actually Ms Reynard and mentioned this on a number of occasions to friends Surely no mere male could write a romance so well and convey such depth of emotion that at least in my experience seems to be the preserve of female authors I m still finding it difficult to believe that Sylvain Reynard is a bloke But take that as a compliment Mr ReynardSteam 25.
