Wasn’t expecting it so soon. Do you have any idea how happy you’ve made me? Love the cover, btw.
I LOVE IT!!!!!
Thank you so much SR!
I am so looking forward to reading this! 🙂

Tonya Lyn says
WOOHOO…i can finally breath again on May 22!!!! Actually, probably more like May 23 after I have read the book.. 🙂
I’m so happy right now, SR! We have a release date! I can’t wait for May 22nd!
I love the title!!!
The whole cover is beautiful.
I love the couple in the middle, the way they are embraced and the way he’s kissing her. They seem lost in the moment and the love and passion they have for each other is perfectly conveyed. I also love the light blue color of the cover and the male figure.
I’m so looking forward to May 22nd! Congratulations 🙂
I love it!!!
I love the title and the cover! Can’t wait for May 22!
Thank you! You’ve made my day with your announcement!
I would like some explanation on synchronizing the cover with title …I know paradise and heaven are the synonyms of it
But why you chose Rapture ? 🙂
And the smock/ blurry impression or vision on the cover is supposed to represent he is in cloud nine ?
Thank you for writing SR.
My Tuesday has improved significantly.
I’ve been ecstatic with the title, in love with the cover and seduced by the advances. At the moment the book is not available for purchase at Amazon.com *waiting the happy moment*
Thanks for writing and sharing your talent.
Thank you. Great cover for a great love story. Well done, SR, as always.
My After Car says
Double entndre? Raptured into Paradise?
Love the cover – it’s beautiful. And, my day has just been MADE – the sequel will be in my hands as quickly after release as Amazon can deliver it! Hooray!
Congratulations on book number two!
Natalie W says
Oh wow, love that cover! Congrats and anxiously looking forward to it!
I love the title!!! I love the cover!!! May 22nd can’t come soon enough!!!
The Autumn Review says
Love it! So excited! Just added to Goodreads. 🙂 I don’t see it on Amazon to pre-order yet though.
Oh it’s wonderful!!!
It’s a perfect title, WAY better than any of those silly guesses I made last week!Of course, now I will have Blondie singing in mah head all day!
I adore it SR. Just completely adore it.
Just two weeks. I can wait two weeks. (I think)
Rapture! I had other ‘R’ words in my head but that works well! Thank you for the cover and I do look forward to May 22! So is it cloud or smoke? I was picturing the fire from the first being snuffed out so they can rise from the flames. I look forward to snagging that e-book ASAP while I wait for the paperback to arrive in the mail! What a journey this has been! I look forward to your future projects but remain so greatful for you SR, and your 1st characters in Julia and her Gabriel and MAIA too. I wonder what stories Opa is telling her today?
Wishing you all the best,
Amanda C. says
Once again, I’m excited. I will not look at the cover again for the rest of the day. I must show some restraint.
I will, however, begin my in depth research on the rapture, how it relates to Dante’s Inferno, and how it could relate to The Professor and Julia.
Looking at the cover art, obviously, the fire is no longer there. It reminds me of when Gabriel said, “If you feel scorched, flip the switch and the inferno will go out,” when he was referring to his fireplace. I wonder if she was able to do so. Or maybe he released her from her own inferno. They are now surrounded by smoke (perhaps incense) and are fully clothed.
She’s definitely in a pose of surrender. Ain’t no defense against some good necking! Her face is also illuminated like an angel while his has a shadow. Light and dark.
Is the male figure holding his head in relief, in thought, or in prayer? Maybe it’s just the narrator thinking, “Get a room!”
I’m done rambling and analyzing. (My work productivity has dropped for a mysterious reason this morning.) I feel like I’m back in school. I love being taught. You’re a great teacher, SR. You’ve got me reading more books than I thought I had the time to. Read your books and you’ve got the entire liberal arts curriculum including physical education.
No tengo remedio con mi amor de este cuento.
SR, what can I say? You have done it again. I can honestly say this is my most anticipated book of 2012.
I love it SR! Beautiful cover, a wonderful title, and a release date that is fast approaching. Woot!
See the blue wisp on the cover could be smoke, but I’d like to think it holds more religious symbolism-that of the Spirit.
Congratulations, SR. I am so looking forward to reading more of your words!
Me encanto, me encantoooo estoy emocionada, ya quiero que sea 22 de mayo 🙂 un saludo desde Colombia.
Sheri Zee says
LOVE it! May 22nd seems so far away! I’m counting down the days!
Jennifer Lane says
Love it! And May 22nd will be here soon, yay!
Absolutely lovely! Can. Not. Wait.
India Rose says
Well done, SR.
RAPTURE is a perfect title for the second half of this story, juxtaposing Gabriel’s INFERNO nicely. And the cover art is so compelling. I like that it is a direct parallel with the cover of Gabriel’s Inferno. Really lovely.
Thank you for sharing this with us and for sharing this beautiful and unforgettable story. It will always be in my heart, as will you be.
Looking forward to the big release on the 22nd. My credit card is ready. Hope the Gabriel’s Rapture merchandise will follow soon. Or maybe merchandise featuring both Inferno & Rapture? Love it all!
All the best to you. You are such an amazing writer with your art of words, and a wonderful friend to us all.
The cover is perfect! I am so excited for the sequel! Can’t wait!
Congratulations, SR….you’re the best!
Looking forward to May 22.
Thank you kindly.

Too excited..cannot wait!
Sara R. Rice says
Beautiful cover and love the title! Looking forward to the release of the book on May 22. I tried to pre-order it but it’s not available yet. Sigh….
I see Gabriel and Julia continuing with their love and passion for each other. I envision the clouds around them as ethereal…surrounding the beauty of the two of them.
Thank you SR. I am hoping for more and more.

May 22nd can’t get here fast enough!!! and what a captivating cover!! must start a countdown!!
A Dream Come True!!
A perfectly chosen title, and lovely cover to go with it! This comes at an excellent time for me personally to re-read the first book and then be ready to continue with the sequel.
May 22 cant come quickly enough…
Sure have missed your writing,SR!
Thanks so much!
Cant wait for the 22nd! Hope you are already working on book #3 as I’m sure we will want their story to continue!
That’s the day after my birthday. I AM ELATED!

I thought everyone here might enjoy this. SR, the title is beautiful! I am anticipating being thrown into raptures myself in less than a week when your sequel hits my kindle.

I stumbled upon Gabriel’s Inferno through my Kindle and it is one of my all time favorites. Can’t wait to purchase this one at midnight.
I just tried to pre-order the kindle version on Amazon and there isn’t one to pre-order 🙁 Are they only going to have it in paper back??? I’m desperate here!!
Kindle/ ebooks may not go up for sale until the 22nd.
Aw you didn’t hear your book sold out the first day on amazon. I am so happy for you. It truly is a work of art.
Lovely work or art! I pre-ordered and it didn’t ship for 4 days! So glad it is that popular SR. All the best. Now back to reading it. The PDF anyway. still waiting for the books 😉

I needed to send you the tiny remark so as to say thank you over again over the amazing things you’ve shared at this time.

This is surprisingly open-handed of you to provide publicly just what many people could have marketed for an e-book to earn some…
