Julia and Gabriel have come a long way. They first met when Julia was seventeen years old. Eight years later, it’s safe to say that their road to a HEA wasn’t easy, and yet neither time nor circumstances and enemies could prevent them from falling in love with each other and being together now and forever. In Gabriel’s Redemption we see Gabriel worki

Burried deep in books and lectures, Julia is concentrating on her PhD. studies. When Gabriel's sudden urge to start family complicates things in their personal live, it seems like there may be troubles in the paradise. Will Gabriel, who is still facing demons from his past, be able to achieve long-seeked peace and find redemption from his sins?

To say that this book disappointed me would be an understatement.

Let me be quite frank..

Was this book needed?

This could have stayed a beautiful duet with an amazingly long epilogue at the end of book two.
But the author went ahead and wrote a book 3, which everyone.. including myself were super excited about.. BUT unfortunately the story didn't work for me.. it felt like too much was happening.. and when the book ended.. it felt incomplete.

The long awaited conclusion to the Gabriel's Inferno series is finally here. I feel like I've been waiting for an eternity to read this. So what did I think... well, Professor Emerson never disappoints me! I loved it! It moved at a bit of a slower pace at some parts then the first two novels, but it was still an incredible 5 star read for me!

SOOOO, this was a highly anticipated book this last year for me. Did I love it,...yes of course. It's the Professor, how can you not love him. But some of the book, Julia and Gabriel irritated me to no end as well, a lot was unexpected.

Okay, so everybody knows the first year of marriage is supposed to be the toughest. That's when you are learning more about each other and if you haven't lived with each other prior to marriage, you are learning what you've really married as well, lol. But this w

★★★★★! Gabriel’s Redemption, book 3 of 3. The conclusion of Professor Gabriel Emerson’s courtly seduction of his chaste student Julia!

“I’d never argue with a naked woman.”

Books in Gabriel’s Inferno trilogy should be read in order:
Book 1: Gabriel’s Inferno
Book 2: Gabriel’s Rapture
Book 3: Gabriel’s Redemption

Rich on symbolism, depth, history and divine message the Gabriel’s Inferno trilogy is set against the backdrop of Dante’s Devine Comedy. The ingenuity of using

That was such a beautiful, tear-jerking ending. Nothing is really sweeter than a HEA for your favorite book couple.

He'd met her when she was seventeen (ten years his junior) and fallen in love with her.

For Gabriel and Julianne it's been a long road, first meeting when she was a teenager, and then six years later as Gabriel's grad student. They'd fallen in love, married and now six months down the track are still blissfully enjoying life as Professor and Mrs Emerson. Gabriel is now a professor at Boston University, while Julianne is working on her PhD at Harvard.

Gabriel's Redemption is a beautiful conclusion to a truly insightful and memorable, one-of-a-kind love story. In continuing with its "redemption-based" theme, this final installation follows our characters through their darkest moments, as we see a lot of what was implied in the first two books generously play out.

In an attempt at remaining discreet with plot details, I'll simply mention that this installment deals with the trials Julia and Gabriel face as a newly married couple, whil

Oh my Gabriel’s Redemption!! Where I do I begin?! I am happy that I was able to get an ARC of such a highly anticipated book but sad because now the series is over! No more Professor Emerson! I was very eerie of reading Gabriel’s Redemption; third books in a series are usually never as amazing as the first two, leaving the reader disappointed.

Gabriel's Redemption was the perfect conclusion to Gabriel and Julianne's whirlwind romance story. For over a year, I'd been waiting for this third and final part of the highly praised Gabriel's Inferno-series and I can honestly say it did not disappoint! Once again, the Professor managed to make me swoon with his many carefully chosen words and poems. He's the perfect example of a gentleman and a hot alpha male all in one!!

I've one thing to say- Sylvain Reynard didn't plan to write this book. He wrote Gabriel's Rapture in the hopes that The Professor and Julia's story would be complete. It's the readers that pushed for this book. They wanted more from this couple...a look into their future a few years down the road. To give us a sense of closure. SR gave us this in spades! Not only did we get the COMPLETE HEA for Gabriel and Julianne, but closure to each and every nuance to their story. Of Rachel and Aaron, he

Sylvain Reynard’s GABRIEL'S REDEMPTION is the highly anticipated final book in the Gabriel’s Inferno series. The series was originally conceived as two books, but Reynard changed his mind after readers pleaded for a third. If you haven’t read the series, I do recommend you read the first two books before proceeding to REDEMPTION because Reynard does revisit past characters and gives you character backgrounds that will leave you lost otherwise.

Before I proceed to the review, I want to say, that i

In this book we have a happily married Gabriel and Julia but their happy ever after is far from coming, since they still have a lot of unresolved issues.
Starting with their past and through all the doubts about their future, the lovers still have a bumpy road ahead of them.

Bookish Temptations
Gabriel’s Redemption by Sylvain Reynard has been my most anticipated read of 2013. I’ve been wanting to have it my hot little hands since I found out that SR was going to write it, so when that moment finally arrived I was ecstatic. I’m just like any other reader when I begin a book…full of anticipation and excitement, and when it’s a favorite author’s book I’m also expectant. I set the bar higher for an author who is continuing a series, and to WoW! me isn’t an automatic, or an easy gimme.

Oh god it’s killing me. Have you ever waited so long to get your hands on a book? I did! For this one and when the GOD’s opened up and yes, I got a PAPERBACK ARC, I think I had a heart attack. I loved book 1, Gabriel’s Inferno and yes book 2 was a bit disappointing, but I figure that was just the filler book.

SAD TO SAY… I HAD HUGE expectations for Gabriel’s Redemption
