Professor Gabriel Emerson, a specialist in Dante and the art of seduction, believes he has already earned his exile to the lower circles of hell. Since redemption is impossible, there is no reason to refrain from indulging in a life of pleasurable sin, using his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm as a means to gratify his every whim. But when he meets Julia Mitchell, a brilliant, lovely, and innocent grad student with the achingly familiar eyes of an angel, all of his cynical convictions are challenged. Her mysterious allure and the havoc she wreaks on his self-satisfied existence cause him to lash out at her, while her quiet beauty and innate goodness consistently undermine his control, tempting him beyond measure.

My thoughts:
Gabriel's Inferno by Sylvain Reynard is a contemporary romance that is very sensual and hot. Julia Mitchell has moved to Canada to complete her degree on Dante. Her professor, Gabriel Emerson, is well respected and at the top of his field. He's also an arrogant jerk at times. He's also very hot. They have met before but Gabriel doesn't remember her. In fact he treats her very badly. He's also very attracted to her and overprotective of her as well. He must fight his internal urges or be forced to pay a heavy price.
This book is very hot and steamy but without a lot of sex. Reynard has a gift for building up anticipation that leaves you wanting more. Gabriel and Julia have fantastic chemistry. They both have troubled pasts that binds them together. Gabriel thinks of Julia as an angel but loathes himself. He thinks once she knows the truth about him she'll leave him so he keeps her at a distance. He can't stay away from her. Gabriel's love for poetry as well as music lure Julia to him.
This is a great book. The story line as well as the characters, suck you in. I loved every minute of this book. I was intrigued from the first page. I didn't want to stop reading it until I was done. If you haven't checked out Gabriel's Inferno yet, you need to. You will thank me for it!
