A few weeks ago I was speaking to Sylvain Reynard’s assistant, Enn, and when she asked if Lit, etc wanted to be part of the cover reveal for the third book in the Gabriel’s Inferno series, I couldn’t say no. I loved Gabriel’s Inferno and enjoyed Gabriel’s Rapture. While I’m a little disappointed we’re getting a third book (only because SR said early only on he wouldn’t write a third and then changed his mind), I’m happy to say hello to the Professor again. Come December don’t bother me because I’ll be busy reading Gabriel’s Redemption, but before I can do that, we have a cover reveal! Are you ready?
Series: Gabriel’s Inferno
Publication date: December 03, 2013
Genre: Contemporary Romance
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.

I am honoured to have both of my books appear on the USAToday Bestseller list and the New York Times Bestseller list. I’ve also been a Semifinalist for Best Author in the 2011 and 2012 Goodreads Choice Awards. “Gabriel’s Inferno” was a Semifinalist for Best Romance in 2011 and “Gabriel’s Rapture” was a Finalist for Best Romance in 2012, in the Goodreads Choice Awards, as well.
I’m interested in the way literature can help us explore aspects of the human condition – particularly suffering, sex, love, faith, and redemption. My favourite stories are those in which a character takes a journey, either a physical journey to a new and exciting place, or a personal journey in which he or she learns something about himself/herself.
I’m also interested in how aesthetic elements such as art, architecture, and music can be used to tell a story or to illuminate the traits of a particular character. In my writing, I combine all of these elements with the themes of redemption, forgiveness, and the transformative power of goodness.
I try to use my platform as an author to raise awareness about the following charities: Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep Foundation, WorldVision, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and Covenant House.
