Book Summary (courtesy of GoodReads)

Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father.

But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront her about the subject of her presentation – research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets.

In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.

My Review
This book in 8 words of less …

Ever since I heard that Reynard was writing a third installment to Gabriel’s Inferno I was beyond excited with euphoria and jubilation! Forget the Christian Grays, Gideon Crosses and Kellan Kyles of the world because Gabriel Emerson is freakin’ GOD when it comes to alpha dominance. His magnetism is just too addictive to contain! Just thinking about him all over again has it hot in here … please excuse me while I fan myself to douse down the flames of my very naughty thoughts. Oh wait, I can’t because Gabriel is like a chocolate truffle, a sinfully delectable morsel that I would devour slowly just to savior his unique flavor and feast on his exquisite deliciousness that would ultimately leave me wanting more. I just want more. I just want more.


From start to finish this book is just absolute awesome sauce! At the beginning we find our couple six months into their marriage trying to make a home living near Harvard which is where Julianne is currently attending and following her dreams to be a Dante Specialist while Gabriel is a professor at Boston University. While married life has been blissfully filled with unbelievably scorching sex reality has Julianne under some pressure. She has made a name for herself in the academic world and has been invited to speak at a conference in England. The strain of this anxiety has her questioning herself but with the support of her friends, among them Paul (oh, how I love you too), her Virgil has her confidence shining through. The time spent in England for this conference is one of my most favorite parts. We see friends and nemeses alike and lots of feelings are expressed through the drama that escalates.

Gabriel and Julianne have given each another strength and compassion needed to heal wounds from their past but when Gabriel expresses his desire to start a family with Julianne some of her fears that aren’t fully forgotten being to surface. Wanting to focus and finish her studies first causes her to develop feeling of guilt and fear of disappointing Gabriel and his happiness. Meanwhile with Gabriel wanting a child of his own he walks a path that has him facing some of his own buried demons in regards to his own bloodline. Doubt can be a fickle bitch and the fear of losing what you love is the heart of this story. Faith and forgiveness to go hand in hand and redemption cannot be won by actions alone.

Final Thoughts

Reynard has made Gabriel and Julianne’s journey both haunting and pleasurable. To forget a love such as theirs is simply unfeasible. I can pretty much state as fact that if you begin this series you will fall for this ensemble of characters as much as I have and anyone would positively agree. Now I would like to thank Mr. Reynard for creating this sacred love story and may my dreams be filled with a delectable Professor Emerson of my own.,

Gabriel-as-SylvainI’m interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition – particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.

I’m also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.

I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House. For more information, see my Twitter account.



Monsieur Reynard is giving away, hold your breath … a pair of Christian Louboutin’s (Gabriel’s favorite)
and 15 signed sets of the Gabriel trilogy.

    It's still so hard to believe you are gone. We were each other's pain in the ass but oh goodness how I miss you and wish you were here, even if it's just to call you Taco. My world will never be the same without you for I am now a lone wolf in this big world but I know you are with Mom and Nanny. Please keep him safe for me until we can be reunited and reborn.
