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 raptures 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 succumb to Danteís fate? Or will he fight to keep Julia, his Beatrice, forever? In Gabrielís Rapture, the brilliant sequel to the wildly successful debut novel, Gabrielís Inferno, Sylvain Reynard weaves an exquisite love story that will touch the readerís mind, body, and soul, forever.
