Intervista a Sylvain Reynard, autore della trilogia bestseller Gabriel’s Inferno (scroll down for the English translation)

 

Gabriel's redemption

 

 

Oggi è un grande giorno per tutti i fan italiani di Sylvain Reynard! Gabriel’s Redemption – Seduzione ed Estasi, terzo ed ultimo capitolo della serie Gabriel’s Inferno, esce oggi in tutte le librerie italiane, pubblicato da Casa Editrice Nord. Io sono una grande fan di Sylvain Reynard e adoro la serie Gabriel’s Inferno. La storia del Professore e della sua Julia mi ha davvero conquistato il cuore e sono felicissima che il terzo ed ultimo volume della serie sia approdato anche in Italia.

A Dicembre ho avuto l’opportunità di leggere Gabriel’s Redemption in lingua inglese e ora potrò finalmente godermelo anche in italiano. Lo potete acquistare in tutte le librerie come anche su Amazon e Kobo.

Sylvain Reynard è stato così gentile da accettare di fare quest’intervista e voglio anche ringraziare la sua publicist, Enn Bocci.

Ecco cosa mi ha rivelato…

Elena’s Picks: First Encounters…(part 1)

first encounters

First encounters, first impressions… Once I finish a book, I often find myself thinking about how far the two main characters have gone, since their first meeting. It’s very interesting to see how their story developed, since the first moment they laid eyes on each other. As good ol’ Jane Austen teaches us, first impressions are often wrong…and indeed in some novels the two characters get on the wrong foot at the beginning. Some first encounters are awkward, one of the characters embarrasses himself/herself , sometimes they start off by completely despising one another. In other first encounters sparks fly from the very start, desire and passion immediately overtake the soon to be couple…Here are some first encounters  I love, considering how the story between the characters developed throughout the novels and sequels…

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.
