I think Sylvain Reynard writes beautifully. I fell in love with this series because of the art and the passionate characters. I originally rated this 2 stars - an okay score, not terrible. But I believe this was better off as a duet. So, I'm going to consider this book a really long epilogue and rate it as if it were. It's not far fetched - It reads like an epilogue, offers some closure, and gives you an HEA like most expect from epilogues. Still, I don't think I'd recommend it unless you were a die-hard fan. I am a die-hard fan of Professor Gabriel and I was very happy for him throughout this entire story. Sadly, I hardly see this book crossing my mind when I think about Gabriel & Julianne in the future.
“This is the culmination of all my hopes, Gabriel... This is my happy ending.”
