Product Description

Product Description

I never imagined things could get worse, but they do. The men who took us show no mercy. They won’t stop until they’ve destroyed Rafe for something he has no memory of, and I’m their weapon of choice.

Tortured and defiled, they make me wish I was back in that cabin where death was favorable to drawing another breath, but our captors can’t break what’s already broken.

What scares me is the madness I see festering inside Rafe.

I’ve taken his freedom, his career, his reputation, yet despite all I’ve done, he’s determined to fight for me, kill for me, give everything he is for me. He’ll even die for me.

NOTE TO READERS: FERVENT is a new adult dark romance with disturbing themes and explicit content, including sexual scenes and violence that may offend some. Intended for mature audiences. Part 3 of 4 in the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read, and it does have a cliffhanger! Approximately 47,000 words.

About the Author

She loves to explore the darker side of human nature in her fiction, and she’s morbidly curious about anything dark and edgy, from deviant sex to serial killers.

She warns you to heed their words! Her playground isn’t full of rainbows and kittens, though she likes both. She lives in Oregon with her husband and their four children–three rambunctious UFC/wrestling-loving boys and one girl who steals everyone’s attention.

The ending of Rampant left me shattered, dying for the continuation of the Condemned series. Gemma James has created a dark, addictive world that has held me captive since the very first book. Alex and Rafe are not your average couple and they have endured more pain and suffering than anyone in their struggle to battle their enemies and overcome a condemning past. Faced with impossible choices, one thing always remains between the two of them - their love for each other and their fierce need to fight to the death to save the other.

Taken hostage by an unlikely captor has them both caught off guard, Rafe immobilized by drugs and kept restrained - effectively cutting off their escape. Their only hope? To use their wits and endure the torture inflicted on them until a method of escape presents itself. What I love about Gemma’s writing is that she is able to drag you down into the darkness, into the depths of despair, while still offering you hope for a bright future. The twists in this book are setting up for one hell of a conclusion to this series and I can’t wait to get my hands on that last book.

Alex still remains one of the strongest female characters. The torture and depravity that she endures is unbelievable. Her strength allows her to not only carry on, but to do so with the spirit to fight back. Tough decisions are thrown at her and Rafe as they fight for their freedom and unlikely alliances are formed. What would you sacrifice to save the one you loved?

"Except hope was a sword that would slice us into pieces if we let it."

I am loving this series, Gemma never ceases to amaze me with the shocking twists and the brilliance of her dark mind. Once again, I’m left on the edge of my seat wanting more! If you are a fan of dark, delicious reads - this series is one you are going to want to check out.

This is the third book in the Condemned series and it will have you in tears. While Rafe and Alex try to escape from their captors, will they find out who is behind the kidnapping and why? I loved it and could not put it down and I want the last book to see how Gemma James pulls a Happily Ever After out of the pain and hurt in this story.

HASH(0x9b921234) out of 5 stars WOW! I was completely consumed by this installment of the Condemned series! April 26 2015
By Shayna Renee's Spicy Reads - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
~*~ 4.5 STARS ~*~

With a first chapter that will have your heart pounding faster than ever, and an ending that will leave you with your jaw to the floor, Gemma James takes us on her darkest journey yet in FERVENT. A brutal beginning and with no happily ever after in sight, we find our main characters in the fight for their life. Fighting against an enemy that asks the question, "What would you be willing to do to save the man/woman you love?"

A man fighting a war with the enemy and himself, trying to hold back the monster that's deep inside. With bits and pieces of a memory returned, cravings sliver to the surface, reminding him of what he really is capable of.

WOW! I was completely consumed by this installment of the Condemned series! A thrilling, intriguing, and mysterious dark romance that will have you begging for more. Dark Romance junkies will DEVOUR this book and this series. FERVENT is everything you crave and everything you didn't know you needed in a high anxiety, hard-core, gritty romance.

Alex and Rafe have been through Hell and back. There love is so strong, so resilient, so intense that you can't help feel the emotions flying off the pages. Since the beginning we have wanted their Happily Ever After. Even with all of the events that have happened between them, I yearn for their love story to be filled with nothing but beauty and happiness. But when the light fades once again on their happy ending, the darkness that once surrounded their love, becomes darker and more vast than ever before. Will their love make it through this darker than dark times? How much longer will they have to fight for what they've worked for? The question is yet again, "What would you be willing to do to save the man/woman you love?" When all is said and done, maybe the right answer to that question is to simply to walk away.

FERVENT immediately brings us back into this dark, intense, and gritty world that the amazing Gemma James has created. The emotions, the feelings, the intensity of it all will blow you away. Every whip jerked me forward, every scream hurt my throat, and every tear tore at my heart. This right here, is a series no dark romance fan can deny. It's an absolute must read, and I can't recommend this book or this series enough.

HASH(0x9b92142c) out of 5 stars Dark, twisty and unexpected! April 27 2015
By K A Street - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
having or displaying a passionate intensity.

Fair warning, this is not a standalone. This is book 3 of 4 in the Condemned series. It is the dark, twisted, and passionate story of Alex and Rafe.

Alex De Luca has loved one man. He was sent to jail for 8 years for a rape he didn't commit and on release, he seeks out revenge against the person that sent him there...Alex. Alex feels she deserves his punishment and takes every bit of his intense anger and asks for more. After years of torment from her Stepbrother Zach, she needs the pain to find the pleasure.

Rafe Mason was hardened by years in prison. He hatched a plan for revenge only to find a willing victim in Alex. With the help of his cellmate Jax, Rafe kidnaps, cages and torments Alex and unexpectedly falls in love. After he lost her to her brother Zach who's obsession lead to the kidnapping of Alex and his attempted murder, Rafe was left with traumatic amnesia. When he finally gets Alex back, he is no longer the cruel, dominant man Alex craves.

At the end of Torrent, both Rafe and Alex are still struggling with their past when they are taken by an unknown enemy. This time at least they are together in their struggle, but that can be both better and worse. With terror of captivity, Rafe's memories start to return from the years in prison and his time with Alex. He is haunted by both the memories and his desire to choke and control her. He is stuck between his need to save Alex from herself and the enemy and his lust to dominate her. For Alex it's more simple, she wants Rafe.

"I'd gladly exist as a vagrant beside him, belonging nowhere or to anyone except each other." ~Alex

After all the struggles these two have faced, it's hard to imagine things getting worse, but in the dark and twisted hands of Gemma James, the impossible is reality. I really didn't expect this twisty tale, but I have loved the journey. The writing is amazing and storyline unique and mysterious, even this far into the tale. And the end, well, I'll just say I've never wanted summer to go fast, but I need Vagrant for the rest of the story!

I was given a complimentary copy in return for a honest review.

HASH(0x9b92157c) out of 5 stars I wanted to commit fictional murder. April 30 2015
By Sarah - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
If you’re new to the Condemned Series then I highly recommend that you go pick up a copy of Torrent and Rampant before starting in on this gem. This is a part of a series and was not intended to be a stand-alone, therefore you will be lost.

If you've already read the first two books and you’re contemplating on getting this one as well, then stop dragging your feet and just one-click it already. Trust me. You will not be disappointed.

I can honestly say that I wasn't that impressed with Alex when I first read about her in Torrent, but holy hell. I can’t believe this girl is still standing after all that she endures here. She’s constantly being violated, beaten, and tortured. But despite all that, she refuses to back down. There’s not a thing that she wouldn't do, not a thing that she wouldn't agree to, if it meant saving Rafe’s life. He’s what matters to her. He’s what keeps her going.

My heart kind of broke for Rafe. He’s still suffering from memory loss so it’s like going through hell twice, he doesn’t remember the things he’s being accused of, and the flashes of memory that he’s regained from his time with Alex leaves him with a deep sense of guilt. But worse than that, he doesn’t understand the dark desires that threaten to overwhelm him. It was interesting to see two very different sides of his character, and I rather enjoyed the delicate balance of it all.

Now it took me awhile to figure out how I really felt about this book. If I’m to be completely honest, I kept putting it aside because I continuously found myself getting rather pissed off. It’s very rare that I find myself wishing that I could live in a fictional world just so I could kill everyone, but that’s exactly what was happening here. But here’s the thing. It made me think. It made me feel something. And a week after I finished Fervent, I found myself still thinking about some of the things that I read. THAT’S how I knew it was a five star read. If it stays with you for one reason or another then you know you have a winner.

As with the other books in this series, Fervent does end in a cliffhanger and I’ll be sitting here waiting (impatiently) for the final installment to release. I’m actually really excited to see how it’s all going to end.

**This book was given to me in exchange for an honest review. The fact that it was given to me in no way changes the way that I feel, and this review is based solely on the story itself**

HASH(0x9b921948) out of 5 stars Better than than the last one April 28 2015

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
But it remains a frustrating read. We are being parsed a book - no doubt for economic reasons. There was more action and movement than the last installment, but it was just a piece of a story. And sadly, because this isn't an amazing book, 6 months between installments meant I forgot a lot about the first 2 books, so I was lost at times. I guess that is telling about the series as a whole....

Gemma James is a master at her craft. This book took me on one major roller coaster ride. Fervent is a dark, erotic story that takes you through experiences most people don't go through.. This book had me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't put it down. I can't wait for the next book!
