Description: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 Julianne 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.
My opinion: Well written.Beautiful story. I truly loved this trilogy.I cried alot at times. The end was perfect and emotional. Now a few words about this book:Gabriel and Julia have their first fight as a couple, Christa is one crazy bitch, Professor Piccton is a lovely woman and has an interesting story,Simon changed (i didn't see that coming).I was so moved by how much gabriel wanted to be a dad, especially the scene with maria.
My favourite lines:
1)Gabriel fixed her with a look that would have melted snow.Then he brought his lips to her ear. “I want to see your naked skin glow in the moonlight while I’m inside you.”
2)They could go to hell. (And study Dante’s Inferno in person.)
3) (Desk sex can be very, very good, but it’s important to remove the staplers first.)
4)“If you don’t know how this happened, darling, then clearly I’m not doing it right.”
5) He kissed her then, tenderly. It was the kiss of a man who’d just received what he desired most
from his beloved. A most desired, most unexpected gift.
6)(It must be said parenthetically that karma had been served.)
