I started this based on a recommendation on a blog. I was doing some research behind the Shades of Grey series and I came across this review. I think if I had not read The Shades of Grey this book would have been a great read. I enjoyed this book but it felt as if the story took a very long time to develop. The references to Dante and Beatrice at first were romantic and towards the end it just seemed redundant. The lost soul looking for love was so pleasing. Some of the things he says just don’t seem like what a true romantic would say no matter how much in love a man is.
Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption.
When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide.
An intriguing and sinful exploration of seduction, forbidden love and redemption, “Gabriel’s Inferno” is a captivating and wildly passionate tale of one man’s escape from his own personal hell as he tries to earn the impossible…forgiveness and love.
