Welcome to another month of Share the Love!
*sigh* This book is so good. It's one of my favorite reads of 2011 so far! I'm currently writing the review for it and am having a hard time with it because the words in my review wouldn't do it justice! Yes, it's one of those types of books. So good that you just want to say, it's so good. Read it. And then you'll know what I mean. My doode Kat (Mistress Spice from The Order) recommended this book to me back at the beginning of the year and when I was contacted by the publisher of the author to review it I jumped at the chance! It took me a while to get to it but when I did, I just wanted to kick myself for waiting so long to read it! IT CONSUMED ME as I was reading it! I couldn't put it down. There was mayhem in my house that day because I couldn't put my Kindle down long enough to take care of my kids! They were on their own. LOL But you know what I mean, it was that kind of book! And I want to share it with someone. My giveaway this month is:
Gabriel's Inferno by Sylvain Reynard!
Professor Gabriel Emerson, a specialist in Dante and the art of seduction, believes he has already earned his exile to the lower circles of hell. Since redemption is impossible, there is no reason to refrain from indulging in a life of pleasurable sin, using his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm as a means to gratify his every whim. But when he meets Julia Mitchell, a brilliant, lovely, and innocent grad student with the achingly familiar eyes of an angel, all of his cynical convictions are challenged. Her mysterious allure and the havoc she wreaks on his self-satisfied existence cause him to lash out at her, while her quiet beauty and innate goodness consistently undermine his control, tempting him beyond measure. Despite surviving a traumatic childhood, nothing has shaken Julia's faith that redemption is possible for everyone-everyone but her. Her unworthiness torments her, since the only man she will ever love has managed to forget her very existence, failing to even recognize her when they reconnect. Too naive to see that Gabriel's hostility is a mask for his increasing obsession with her, Julia forces him to come to grips with his past while she continues to unwittingly torment his senses. His fascination grows into a dangerous preoccupation, for Julia is forbidden fruit . . . Will Gabriel survive the inferno, or will he succumb to the flames?Oh I love it so! It will be getting 5 Bells in my review and the review should be on my blog sometime this week. I hope you will stop by and check it out.
