Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate, yet clandestine affair with his former student, Julia Mitchell.
Sequestered on a romantic holiday in Italy, he tutors her in the sensual delights of the body and the rapture of sex. But when they return, their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics, and a jealous ex-lover.
When Gabriel is confronted by the university administration, will he be forced to share Dante’s fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever?
Gabriel's Rapture is the sequel to Gabriel's Inferno. If you haven't read the first book this will contain spoilers. The story line picks up where the last book left off. Gabriel and Julia have finally taken their relationship to the next level. Gabriel and Julia are in Italy and it's the perfect back drop to their love affair. Julia feels as if she is in some sort of dream because she is so happy.
Their bubble gets burst when a student of Gabriel's sets out to not only ruin him but Julia also. Gabriel and Julia's love is tested by constant problems that keep arising. It seems that the universe doesn't want them to be together.
After I finished Gabriel's Inferno, I started to read this book. I couldn't get enough of the characters and I wanted to find out what would happen next. Gabriel's arrogance has finally caught up with him. He has made some bad choices and now he has to face the consequences. The cost of these consequences could force him to lose everything, including Julia. Julia wants desperately to protect Gabriel. Her character has developed a lot since the beginning. She no longer is the shy girl from the beginning. She has found her strength and is not afraid to use it. The only thing she's afraid of is losing Gabriel.
Gabriel's Rapture is a great sequel. The characters go through a lot in this book. At times I cringed at the decisions that they made. Gabriel's characters has grown a lot also. He is finally forced to deal with his actions and to face his inner demons. This is the perfect conclusion to this series however, I didn't want it to end.
