Feed the beast! Publisher Berkley has gotten the rights to publish Sylvain Reynard’s Gabriel’s Inferno Series, which has already been a top release at several e-retailers. The digital release will be out immediately, with a print release to follow.
Like—very like—E.L. James, Reynard started writing Twilight fanfic, the result of which is this series.
Here is the blurb for the first book in the series, the titular Gabriel’s Inferno:
Enigmatic and sexy, Professor Gabriel Emerson is a well respected Dante specialist by day, but by night he devotes himself to an uninhibited life of pleasure. He uses his notorious good looks and sophisticated charm to gratify his every whim, but is secretly tortured by his dark past and consumed by the profound belief that he is beyond all hope of redemption.
When the sweet and innocent Julia Mitchell enrolls as his graduate student, his attraction and mysterious connection to her not only jeopardizes his career, but sends him on a journey in which his past and his present collide. An intriguing and sinful exploration of seduction, forbidden love and redemption, Gabriel’s Inferno is a captivating and wildly passionate tale of one man’s escape from his own personal hell as he tries to earn the impossible...forgiveness and love.
How long do you think this trend will continue?
