Valentine Post for Bookish Temptations By Prof. Gabriel Emerson (The Gabriel series by Sylvain Reynard) With Awesome Giveaway!!

It wouldn’t truly be Valentines day here on Bookish Temptations without  Sylvain Reynard, and so I’m beyond excited to share something very special from the Professor himself. Get ready to get your swoon on ladies…

Last year, I celebrated Valentine’s Day with Julianne by indulging in a little Chocolate Body Paint.  (

I take time planning our times together, paying attention to details. This year, my goal is to tantalize and please her five senses.

Sight I’m fortunate that Julianne enjoys wearing beautiful clothes almost as much as I admire her wearing them.  This year I’ve chosen something provocative that we can both enjoy:


Sexy Stilettos

Once I’ve presented Julianne with her Valentine gifts, I move our celebration to the kitchen.  I’ve already chosen music for our evening, and I’ve ensured that the first song is playing.

Sound -I can’t help but pull her into my arms while the music soars around us.


Scent  I’ve also ensured that a few candles are burning, filling the air with the Scent of Satsuma and Sandalwood.  I chose these scents because they remind us of our first night together. And that alone sets a special mood.

Then I’ll tell Julianne that we’ll be doing some cooking …

Taste –We’ll work together to prepare a special dessert we first had in Sardinia while on holiday together.

We take blood oranges and peel them, removing the pith. Then we divide them into sections and place them in a bowl, tossing them lightly (together) to release some of their juice.

We take a bar of dark chocolate, and after sampling a piece or two, we break the bar over the orange sections, tossing everything together.

Then we take some extra virgin olive oil and drizzle it over the top of the orange and chocolate.  Finally, we sprinkle a small amount of cracked black pepper over the top.

I’ll leave it to your imagination what comes next, but rest assured, it will be delicious.

At this point in the evening, I’m pouring a glass of champagne for Julianne and something non-alcoholic for myself.  Then I take her upstairs to our bedroom where we commence the final part of our celebration – Touch.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Everyone.

Professor Gabriel O. Emerson.

  40. Ana Delia says:

    Comment? How to put into words what I feel when the Professor has taken all my vocabulary? He is so great, descriptive and sensual. I do envy sweet Julianne receiving that much attention. it’s so magnificent that a human after everything that has happened to him, takes some time to spoil and pamper a woman like that. Definitely more men should read The Gabriel Series and get acquainted with a formal, respectful, loving and lovely Professor. Words –and books for that matter–are one of the best gifts you could receive on a day likes this; actually all days with Mr. Emerson.


  41. courtney ballou says:

    I’d let the professor buy my chocolates wink wink


  42. Kristine says:

    I love the professor and this series. I have never listened to an audio book

  48. lemonamour says:

  60. karly says:

    I love the gabriel’s series, and sylvain reynard as well. It’s almost like I’ve become addicted to Julianne and Gabriel ❤ There is so much about these books that I love and a few things that I don't love. The writing is superb, the language flows, yes Gabriel can be an ass and yet you want to just hug him and soothe him. Julia can get a bit annoying at times, but she has her reasons. And after recently reading so many books with incredibly detailed sexual encounters, I appreciated this refreshing approach. I listened to the audio version, and the narrator was above average, especially when describing intimate scenes.

    In others words, just I could NOT stop thinking about the books, even months later. Gabriel is definitely my favorite Professor! The way hid story, and the others in the series, are written is purely gorgeous. This entire series is always on my recommendation lists.<3


  61. my1edward says:

    Oooh, I’d love to win this one! Great post & great giveaway!


  62. Annie says:

    Wonderful treat from one of my favorite new authors, thank you!! Now, do I just go and grab all the ice in the freezer or run out side and fall into our 18 inches of Noreaster Ice/snow?? Hmm. Thanks again to my unmet friends at Bookish Temp. for another wonderful giveaway!

    Ever Yours,

  69. Anne Figueras says:

    That was incredibly -ah- hot. You have such way with words, Professor. Thank you for enlightening us again. I hope you and Julia have a great Valentine together.
    PS. The music suits both of you pretty well.


  70. Stephanie Mason says:

    you can always count on Gabriel to plan out such a wonderful gift. He is such a wonderful and feeling man. There are not words to describe what an incredible man he is. He shows his sensuality and vulnerability without abandon to Julia. I wish my husband was like that. He knows how to pick the right music to set the mood also. The lyrics were perfect. If someone played that for me I would probably cry.


  71. Bonnie H says:

    Wow! Just Wow, all my senses are tingling 😉


  72. Michelle N says:

    Wow! The professor definitely knows what is going on! He is very clever to entice & stimulate all 5 senses. I’m sure Julia & Gabriel will have a fantastic Valentine’s Day.
    Thanks for the giveaway! They are one of my favourite couples!


  73. Kimmie C. says:
