Gabriel's Promise by Sylvain Reynard

New York Times bestselling author Sylvain Reynard returns with the fourth installment of the beloved Gabriel's Inferno series.

When Gabriel and Julia Emerson first lay eyes on their newborn daughter, Clare, they realize life as they know it will never be the same. Gabriel has vowed to be a good father when he suddenly receives an invitation to give a series of lectures in Edinburgh, Scotland—an opportunity of high prestige—but that would mean leaving his wife and child in Boston. Hesitant to bring it up, he keeps the opportunity from Julia as long as he can, not knowing she has a secret of her own.

When a frightening situation arises that threatens their new family, both parents must make sacrifices. With the family in danger, the looming question remains: Will Gabriel pursue his lectureship in Edinburgh, leaving Julia and Clare vulnerable in Boston, or will he abandon the chance of a lifetime in order to ensure his family's safety?

This is the fourth book in this utterly enchanting series – and I have just reread the first three in anticipation of further goodness. I was delighted at the renewed pleasure of reading Julia and Gabriel’s story – and finally finding out what happened next! I would highly recommend that anyone new to these books do the same, and start at the beginning – truly, you need to know how far they have travelled – but if it has just been a while, then there are enough pointers to remind you of any past events that your brain has forgotten.

Seeing Gabriel and Julia as parents is a real joy, and along with the reality of dealing with a new infant, we see their shift in priorities, and their growth together. Of course, there are hurdles to cross, and once again the past threatens to spoil their present – but they have a number of faithful friends, though none more so than Katherine Picton. I love that she continues to play a significant, if not seminal role in the couple’s lives.

I will not divulge any more, but promise, along with Gabriel, that this is the book we fans have all been hoping for, and I have loved spending a few days catapulted back into that world that I enjoyed so very much over half a decade ago.

Thank you, Sylvain Reynard, thank you.

When I saw that there was another book coming out about Professor Gabriel Emerson, I knew I had to read it. I fell in love with the good professor from the very first book and my love for him is still going strong. Although I will share him with Julia and baby Clare.

When Gabriel receives a prestigious invitation to lecture in Scotland, he is conflicted about leaving Julia and baby Clare at home. Julia has a few concerns of her own after having the baby and she hopes they disappear before she has to tell Gabriel. But when a frightening situation happens at home, Gabriel is thinking about declining to go to Scotland so he can keep Julia and Clare safe.

Will Gabriel tell Julia his concerns and they decide what would be best? Will Julia explain her concerns before they get worse? Will the frightening situation continue to plague them?

With the way the story ended, I wonder if there might be a chance for another book? I hope so! I enjoyed seeing Gabriel and Julia adjusting as parents, Gabriel is even sexier as a daddy. I highly recommend you read from the beginning so you don't miss a delicious second of the good professor. So sit back and enjoy all that is Gabriel's Promise.

I absolutely loved the first three books in this series. They are must reads, especially if you want to understand what's happening in this story.

We find ourselves back with Gabriel and Julia. They have just had their first child and while trying to figure out how to parent and continue with their careers, they have to navigate being married too.

While we get to see their lives more in depth, this book lacked something for me. It was more just a story about what was happening, rather than furthering the story along. And while there is some mystery within the story, I didn't really feel the pull that I did with the first books.

Hopefully the next book won't take too long, because I would love to see where their lives go.
