(description from Goodreads):  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?

My Thoughts
Green swirlsWow!  I don’t even know where to begin.  I loved this book so much.  I completely devoured it in a day and a half.  It was………………… delicious!

There were a lot of scary tense moments for me and a LOT of healing for Gabriel.  It was phenomenally well done.  The cover is gorgeous and I don’t have anything but praise words.

Gabriel’s character is so well structured that it’s a joy to witness the growth from chapter to chapter.  We’ve seen him at his worst and he just continues to rise from the depths of hell with every single breath he takes.  It’s….

Beyond fabulous!

    Hey France! I’m so sorry I didn’t see this reply earlier. For some reason I’m not getting my notifications on these. I just happened upon it.

    I agree about the The Letters of Abelard and Heloise. That was great!

    I loved the part where Gabriel is reminiscing a lot. He is asking for forgiveness and he is expressing his guilt. Gabriel is by far not perfect. When he is troubled, his bottle of Scotch is his dear friend. Did it help, Gabriel? I doubt so. Of course he knew it and he realized that he needed to do something before he became trapped by his old coping mechanisms. He didn’t want to ruin is future, after all.

    Gabriel is always afraid to lose his beloved Julia. For that reason the atmosphere felt a bit sad and melancholic at times.

    The conflict with the university’s administration was excellent. It was really mesmerizing to witness their struggle. In addition, the author pulled off quite an amazing plot twist when he included The Letters of Abelard and Heloise. Wow, I adored it–it was very clever and enchanting at the same time!
