Two lovers bound by their darkest desires… Professor Gabriel Emerson has embarked on a passionate but clandestine love affair with his former student, Julia Mitchell and is teaching her the sensual delights of the body, and the raptures of sex. But their happiness is threatened by conspiring students, academic politics and jealous ex-lovers. Can their love survive against all odds and will Gabriel fight to keep Julia? Gabriel’s Rapture is an exquisite story of a forbidden love that knows no bounds that will touch your mind, body and soul.
