Book three in the Condemned Series, Fervent is a dark romance with scenes which some may find distressing. Not one for the faint hearted for sure!
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.
The Condemned series is quite a dark read which deals with difficult issues such as kidnap and rape, so if you’re looking for a light hearted romance this isn’t one for you. Rafe has lost his memory after he was shot and now with Alex has been taken from the island by people they’ve never met before. Both of them are suffering from the physical and mental abuse that they’ve been put from, and just when they thought they could start again, their lives are upheaved once again when they’re put in the boot of a car.
After the time she spent with her brother Alex is barely holding on, and with Rafe not remembering his past they’re struggling to keep it together. When they reach their destination and find out who has taken them, more shocks and betrayals are in store. Locked in a dark room together they must face their demons head on and try to stay alive.
This book is very much the dark read the previous two were, perhaps even more so. Both of the characters are so emotionally and physically damaged, you do find yourself thinking will they ever get their HEA. There are definitely a few scenes which some may find difficult to read, and its not a happy go lucky story that’s for sure. Having said that though I think Gemma James has handled each situation very well, and the way she’s written it is brilliant. I’m intrigued to find out what happens in the next book – will these two ever get a break!!
