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.

MY FOUR STAR REVIEW OF GABRIEL'S REDEMPTION...
After waiting so long for Gabriel's Redemption, I was not disappointed. Usually after the hero and heroine get together in a romance novel, I usually don't like to read about them anymore. They're together - that's how I like to leave things. But because I loved Gabriel and Julianne so much, I was intrigued by what would come of them after marriage.
Gabriel and Julianne are still far from perfect (though to the reader, they are perfectly perfect for each other), their flaws characterized in the most sensitive and appropriate way. Though they've developed since the first and second books, Sylvain Reynard keeps their subtle (and not so subtle) shortcomings realistic. No one changes overnight and that is true for Gabriel and Julianne. They grow with each other in spite of Gabriel's temper and Julia's insecurities.
The obstacles that Gabriel and Julianne have to overcome in Gabriel's Redemption are not easy ones, but the love between the couple never falters - even though Gabriel insists on still keeping secrets from Julia. Her reactions to his keeping secrets and finding out those secrets were fairly appropriate, though I'm not sure I would have accepted his reasons for keeping them as easily as Julia did.
Sylvain's ending to Gabriel's and Julia's story was perfect and true to the original story line - keeping in tune with the original story of Dante and his nine circles of Hell. However, and this is the reason I gave it four stars instead of five, the literary references got a little too much. I'm sure for many, these were the reasons they'd give it the five stars, but for me, there were a lot of references I didn't get. When I'm reading a romance, I'd rather keep to the romance and not have so many literary lessons - though I realize this was a big aspect of the story since book one.
Gabriel's Redemption really is a great ending to a great trilogy. I definitely recommend and I may even read it again - maybe I'll do a little research on those literary references so that when I read it the second time, I'll understand a lot more.
Bravo, Mr. Reynard. Bravo
