I really liked that. Gabriel is the Dark Tortured Hero. At times, he seems morally ambiguous. Ironically, when Victoria cracks through his hard shield I wanted something more dramatic.
It was a quiet, simple, and poignant event. There was a minor bit of psychobabble though not off-putting. If you like Dark Tortured Heroes then this book is for you. If you want a historical romance without the erotic love scenes then try Lisa Kleypas' Dreaming of You.

Community Reviews. Showing Rating details. Sort order. May 30, Review Update I adore this book and decided yesterday to treat myself and read it again. Well, I had an embarrassing moment while reading that I shared on FB. I figured why not share it on my review, too. Maybe it will spark some interest for those who have not yet read the book.
Plus, I thought you'd get a kick out of my faux pas. Boy, did I learn my lesson! My FB comment: Holy cow!! I love this book and author that you're oblivious to your 14 year old son silently reading over your shoulder. You should have seen the look of horror on our faces! For different reasons, of course!
Honestly, I don't think I've read a more tortured soul than Gabriel. The more I learned about his past and his trials, the more my heart ached for him. Victoria is such an endearing character.
She's everything I love in a heroine. Strong and determined while remaining feminine and a little vulnerable. She was the perfect heroine for our tortured hero. I did not see the plot twist coming or the reason for Gabriel's bitterness toward Michael.
I love when a book's plot is cleverly written and, therefore, takes me by surprise. Gabriel's Woman was emotional, dark, erotic, gritty, sensual, shocking, appalling, thrilling, and utterly captivating.
I very much enjoyed this book. It's very important to read the first book in the series The Lover before starting this one. You will be very confused if you don't. View all 94 comments.
Jul 18, Adrienne rated it it was amazing. Gabriels Woman takes up were The Lover finished and so to apprieciate the story you should really have read Micheal and Annes story first. Gabriel is haunted man, Victoria a desperate woman.
The two become enmeshed in an elaborate contrivance which has it's foundations firmly rooted in the past. Gabriel fears for his life and that of his close friend Micheal. Victoria is an innocent party who has been unwittingly drawn into the 'game'. Whilst Gabriel searches to find the man who seeks to destroy him, he also searches for a past, a small part of him that he believes never existed but he desperatly needs to find.
Will Victoria who innocently enters his life whilst trying for one last time to salvage what was an emotionally desolte but secure lifestyle be the one to unlock his past and free him?
Written in an intense style this book unravels slowly, almost like watching someting in slow motion. This has the effect of drawing the reader in, pulling them in tight until you can almmost taste the fear and tension. The writing is sophisticated and erotic in the true sense of the word, no soft porn here.
A riviting and emotional read for who like things dark and intense. View all 21 comments. Despite its failure it's not the end of the world though. Come to think of it, we have quite a few HR authors in common that we both love, i.
I was so thrilled to give Ms. I totally dislike the author's writing style. It feels choppy, stiff, stilted, and incredibly cold and clinical. I felt like I was stuck in a fridge. The story doesn't flow smoothly.
Schone uses a lot of single words too. An example: With food. A position. Her choice. Death inner monologue…again and again After a short conversation with Gabriel, Victoria "knew" that he's afraid of being touched. I couldn't relate at all. Maybe she's a clairvoyant? Their interaction was quite limited.

It was unnerving. I assume it should be a dark story. That said, it has to be livelier and more dynamic. In fact, the outcome was boring and my interest just petered out. Yeah, a fair-haired angel, a dark-haired angel…the second man…pain, pleasure, death etc. Everything is very, very repetitive. I'm so sorry, folks, Robin Schone is so not for me. View all 19 comments.
Gutters are filled with sewage; I was born in a gutter. I lived in a gutter. A nameless bastard. It packs an emotional punch and the plot is so much better than The Lover. There's suspense, romance, toe-curling love scenes, and a hauntingly beautiful hero that breaks your heart.
The Story Hunger and desperate circumstances leave Victoria Childers with one precious item to sell: She will sell it to the highest bidder at the House of Gabriel, a pleasure house well-known to cater to the upper crust. Her goal is survival. Raped fourteen years earlier, the untouchable Gabriel, proprietor of the House of Gabriel, is participating in a deadly play of vengeance. Victoria is a pawn in this game. He will protect her to the best of his ability while searching for the nameless rapist.
Thoughts and Opinions I almost cringed at the idea of a female character selling her virginity. Anyway, it worked in this story.
We see Victoria having searched all other avenues of survival with greasy hair, bones protruding, destitute, and desperate. Victoria had a plan. She marketed herself for maximum financial gain. She wanted to eat, survive, and find a little bit of safety. I really liked that. Gabriel is the Dark Tortured Hero. At times, he seems morally ambiguous.
Ironically, when Victoria cracks through his hard shield I wanted something more dramatic. It was a quiet, simple, and poignant event. There was a minor bit of psychobabble though not off-putting. If you like Dark Tortured Heroes then this book is for you. If you want a historical romance without the erotic love scenes then try Lisa Kleypas' Dreaming of You. The boy who died or the angel who's carrying him? You take broken people and give them new lives.
Victoria did not mistake the clear liquid crawling down his cheeks for sweat--they were the tears of an angel.
Sep 08, KatLynne rated it it was amazing Shelves: I adore Robin's unique talent that blends emotionally intense love stories with graphic erotic scenes. I've been anxious for this book since Gabriel's introduction in the prequel, The Lover. Gabriel is one of the most tortured heroes I've read. He and Victoria both have been damaged by the actions of others.
Here, we journey with them through heartache and pain as they each learn to trust again.
It's a poignant, sensual, erotic read and one that I loved! View all 12 comments. Jun 03, Eastofoz rated it liked it Recommends it for: What an excruciating read —and not in a good emotional roller coaster way either.
The vast majority of this book is a 2 star read for me. The first pages are very hard to follow and up to about page it reads like weird avant-garde historical fiction instead of a historical romance. Gabriel is not nice at all to Victoria until the end of the book and you have to wonder what she sees in him.
She really brought out the love story but not here. The only thing that saves this messy read is the last 20 or so pages with a big turnaround in the writing that warrants a 3 star rating. View all 3 comments. I read The Lover yesterday and Gabriel's Woman today, and I agree with those who say that they're best read in order.
They are both very emotional and somewhat difficult reads, because there is such horror that is faced. Both Gabriel and Michael are tortured souls, haunted by the unbelievable things they have survived.
The ages of the main characters were very unusual for romance and something that I read The Lover yesterday and Gabriel's Woman today, and I agree with those who say that they're best read in order. The ages of the main characters were very unusual for romance and something that I appreciated: Gabriel is 40 and Victoria is Victoria was a wonderful heroine; strong, yet vulnerable.

I thought that the portrayal of Anne and her inner conflicts was better done than Victoria, however her transformation is very fluid, and subtle in a way that makes it seem all the more real.
I did not get the same sense of heartbreaking loneliness as I did with Anne, and in this I was a little disappointed. Victoria had a compelling history and background, the perfect makings to starkly show how constrained and repressed and alone she has always felt, but it didn't come across as strongly as it could have.
Gabriel was an absolutely wonderful hero and his tragic and heartbreaking story were most definitely felt. I liked Michael a lot in his book, but I think Schone did an even better job here in her creation and writing of the hero.
Gabriel is complex and has a very disturbing history, but throughout the story he remains accessible and understandable. The fact that he cannot bear to be touched and hasn't been in 15 years made it so that his relationship with Victoria had to progress a lot more than the Michael-Anne one before they slept together. This made it seem more authentic and as his walls begin to break down and he starts to let her in, you really get wrapped up in their romance and want so badly for these two broken people to together finally find happiness.
One of my complaints with The Lover was that while it's supposedly an erotica, I really did not feel very strong or sizzling chemistry. It was almost too dry and detailed. It wasn't horrible and the fact that Michael and Anne's relationship is so well-written makes it so that you still feel the passion between them, but it hadn't been what I was expecting.
Here, I didn't have as much of an issue on that subject and thought that the chemistry was better. However, it still didn't give me any "Where's a fan when you need one" moments that one sometimes get with regular and more "mainstream" HRs, which again surprised me.
There were twists and turns, but not as many as with The Lover. We're given more obvious breadcrumbs as we go and having already learned things from the first book, it's easier to piece things together. There are still some great surprises though, and I thought they were supremely well-done and definitely caught me off guard. While the bad guys in both books are absolutely psycho and sick, this one and the things that are done made a little more sense.
Don't get me wrong: The relationship between Michael and Gabriel is shown a little in the first book, and from that we already know the unbelievably strong bond that these two men have with one another. We're given even more insight into their relationship here and I just plainly loved it. I thought their brotherly love for one another was beautifully portrayed and didn't feel any confusion regarding the depth or nature of their relationship.
Schone touches on some very sensitive issues and I thought it only showed them both to advantage and made them seem that much stronger and more amazing for what they had survived, and been able to maintain despite it all.
I think I read in another review that this is almost as much a Gabriel-Victoria story as a Gabriel-Michael story and I have to agree. Not in the romantic sense - their love is purely fraternal and friendly in nature - but it's an integral part of the story and of Gabriel's ability to finally be at peace and let himself be happy. Random Notes: It was sweet and cute how they reacted to his developing relationship to Victoria. I would love to see Gabriel and Victoria as parents.
Not essential, but would have liked those to be tied off ex: Victoria's family. Written July 12, View all 14 comments. Oct 13, Catherine rated it really liked it Shelves: This was a very nice follow up to the first book, The Lover. Any time I saw Gabriel in that book he stole the scene. I was fascinated by him and wanted to know who he was, how he thought, and what led him to the point he was at today. I didn't understand how he could love Michael and seem to hate him at the same time.
I just needed to know why. This was very much a story about Gabriel. I know it's advertised as an Erotic Romance but just like with The Lover , that wasn't the appeal for me. I liked This was a very nice follow up to the first book, The Lover.
I liked the darkness and mystery of both of the books more than the actual romance. If I had to classify it I'd probably call it a love story at the most. While they both involve two people falling in love, the way they are executed and the rules that they follow are completely different. A love story is a side concern in the overall story whereas a romance is the main focus of a story. I'd say the main focus here was Gabriel's growth and healing. Even though the focus wasn't necessarily on Victoria, she still managed to shine.
Her desperation and her conflicted view of her sexuality really captured my attention. I found her very interesting and enjoyed watching her gain confidence in it being okay to desire someone. Learning the truth about Gabriel didn't disappoint me. I was shocked and fascinated to learn the truth about his complex feelings for Michael. His fear of intimacy and the reason behind it was heartbreaking. I wish I could have just reached through the book to give him a hug.It's very important to read the first book in the series The Lover before starting this one.
It packs an emotional punch and the plot is so much better than The Lover. It reflected off of a slender nose, revealed the tightening of pale lips that were neither full nor thin. This book had dialogues repeated in a constant loop…just for the sake of drama. His lips. For the first time in many years Gabriel is tempted into physical contact, the consequences of which spiral their lives out of control. Victoria believes that she had friends out on the street. Gabriel's Woman delivers that which I think every woman secretly desires.
The two become enmeshed in an elaborate contrivance which has it's foundations firmly rooted in the past.
