From the author of the New York Times bestsellers Gabriel’s Rapture and Gabriel’s Inferno comes the epic conclusion to the captivating romantic trilogy.
Professor Gabriel Emerson has left his position at the University of Toronto to embark on a new life with his beloved Julianne. Together, he’s confident that they can face any challenge. And he’s eager to become a father.
But Julianne’s graduate program threatens Gabriel’s plans, as the pressures of being a student become all consuming. When she is given the honor of presenting an academic lecture at Oxford, Gabriel is forced to confront Julianne about the subject of her presentation—research that conflicts with his own. And in Oxford, several individuals from their past appear, including an old nemesis intent on humiliating Julia and exposing one of Gabriel’s darkest secrets.
In an effort to confront his remaining demons, Gabriel begins a quest to discover more about his biological parents, beginning a chain of events that has startling repercussions for himself, Julianne, and his hope of having a family.

I feel it is completely safe to say that Sylvain Reynard broke the mould when he created the stunningly handsome and beautiful hearted, Professor Gabriel Emerson. We all know that Gabriel is a man who imbues such strikingly contradictory qualities, but the more I time spent devouring this trilogy, the more I fell in love with this darkly sexy and incredibly enigmatic man.
We have followed both Gabriel and Julianne Mitchell through a very tumultuous and at times angst-filled journey. We have watched these two grow and develop as their love strengthened so deeply, and Gabriel’s Redemption enhances this stunning trilogy. The Book picks up where Gabriel’s Rapture left off, as we follow the two newlyweds into their new life. Dynamics shift slightly and they are continuously learning the art of compromise in married life. What I adored was that their vulnerabilities were still further explored, and it makes you feel such a deep connection and sense of empathy at what that have each faced in their lives, both together and apart. I also loved that Julianne was more of an equal in terms of the strength she exuded in retaliation to the strong and at times over-bearing (but loveable) nature of Gabriel.
There is truly nothing I could possibly say, except that this book is a stunning conclusion to one of my favourite series ever written. A series that captured my heart instantly and held me captive, in an incredibly romantic and seductive tale that shows true love can surpass both time and distance. In this final instalment, I also truly felt more connected to some of the secondary characters than I did previously. Rachel and Aaron in particular are such an endearing couple and this time around my heart broke for the arduous emotional journey they were taken on.
This is a book and a trilogy that I strongly recommend you read. It was truly wonderful to see how love changed these two stunning individuals, and exactly how much power it holds in healing the scars and deep wounds of a heartbreaking past. This is a novel that also explores the redemptive qualities that can ensue, when one finds peace in their existence and the gift and beauty of true, relentless love.

I’m interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition – particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.
I’m also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.
