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 three of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read! Please begin with TORRENT and RAMPANT, otherwise, FERVENT might not make much sense.


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.
