Blog Tour! Elena Reviews: Angel After Dark by Kahlen Aymes And A Giveaway!

Angel After Dark Cover

The synopsis:

Dr. Angeline Hemming is a beautiful, sassy, no-nonsense type of girl who has risen from a difficult past to become one of Chicago’s most successful and respected criminal profilers. In exchange for free commercials to promote her favorite charitable causes, Angel answers calls and gives relationship advice on a Friday night radio program.

Alexander Avery is a gorgeous and successful corporate genius who doesn’t believe in love. When his girlfriend-of-convenience calls into Angel’s program, he is furious with the show’s host who doles out (what he considers) blind advice, without knowing all the facts… and he decides to give her a piece of his mind, and his side of the story!

When Angel informs Alex he’s the one in need of a much-deserved lesson, all hell breaks loose as these two type-A personalities battle it out for control over minds and hearts, and yes, in bed. Not only are they fighting each other at every turn, but they are also struggling to uphold the convictions they each live by.

It’s unclear who is stronger, but both must discover that to get what they desperately want, they may have to give a little… or a lot.

Elena Reviews: Gabriel’s Redemption by Sylvain Reynard

gabriels-redemption-official-cover

The synopsis:

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 her 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.

My review:

“Our seduction was most definitely mutual. You’re the only woman who ever persuaded me to give my heart. And you still seduce me, Mrs. Emerson. Every day.”

I think it’s needless to say that Gabriel’s Redemption, the third and the last installment of the Gabriel Series, was my most anticipated book of 2013. The story of Gabriel and Julia has a very special place in my heart, and I couldn’t wait to see how everything was going to turn out in their life. Let me begin by saying that I was blown away by the beauty and perfection of this last installment. Every single page, every single scene conveyed so much emotion that I often found myself with happy tears to my eyes. Once again, as it always happens when I review a novel by Sylvain Reynard, I find myself at loss for words, because I believe there are no adequate words to describe the perfection of his writing and all the beautiful emotions he conveys through the pages.
