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?
I really enjoyed being back with the Professor. I kinda missed the grumpy, tough talking, tough acting, pain in the ass Professor. But in reality I think I really like the new and improved Gabriel.
We pick up in Gabriel’s Rapture where we left off in Gabriel’s Inferno (if you have not read Gabriel’s Inferno, you must really read it first) with Gabriel & Julia still on their vacation in Italy While everything is rosy and good in Italy, waiting for them at home is a firestorm of problems.
Gabriel & Julia’s relationship will be tested yet again, but on a much greater scale. It was nice to watch both Gabriel & Julia grow as characters. Each learns more about them self and what they hold dear in their lives.
I will say that I enjoyed Gabriel’s Inferno a little more than Gabriel’s Rapture. Mostly because I felt that some of the story lines just kinda dropped off. I was really hoping a character or two would get their just desserts. But at last they did not. But overall this was a great book.
