She sent an innocent man to prison. Now, eight years later, he's returning the favor... 
I’ve been obsessed with Rafe Mason since I was thirteen. The twisted part of this story is that I still want him, even now. 
Now that he's holding me captive on an island. 
Rafe has his reasons for doing what he's doing, and if I'm honest, I can't blame him. I’m the girl who sent him to prison for a heinous crime he didn't commit. 
But now he's free and the tables have he's the one driven by obsession. 
TORRENT 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 one of the CONDEMNED series. This is not a stand-alone read. Approximately 43,000 words.

Alex should be a spoiled little rich girl, living the good life but thanks to her obsessive step-brother Zach she lives in hell.

Rafe and Zach are best friends but when Rafe catches Alex's eye Zach becomes jealous. Zach does not care that technically Alex is considered his sister, he wants her and no one else will ever touch her, even if she wants them too.

Alex's mother commits suicide and the story glosses over it a bit not giving us too much of the information but letting us piece it together. Seems as though Alex's mom uncovered some of the truth with Zach and Alex.

Alex thinks she is completely screwed up. Does she like being raped? Is that why she gets off on it? That can't be right. She does not want Zach, never has.

When a secret is uncovered Rafe is accused of rape and Alex backs up the story sending him to jail for 8 years.

Now Rafe is out and he wants those 8 years back so his plan is to take those 8 years from Alex. Rafe is after the truth of why she sent an innocent man to prison. And he will kidnap her and torture it out of her if he needs too. With the plan in motion Alex is ripped from her home and presumed dead.

Now as Rafe's prisoner she will be punished for her lies. Rafe loves and hates Alex. He loved her when she was 15 and he could not do anything with her because she was an innocent child. Now his hate for her has turned his dark tendencies into something more twisted. Rafe tortures Alex until the truth unfolds before him. He was not prepared for that truth or the realization that his torture methods have been terrorizing, humiliating, and hurting another victim and the woman he ultimately loves. Rafe knows he needs Alex forever but he must give her a choice to be free or stay.

Alex likes that she is presumed dead. Zach won't look for her if he thinks she is dead. The prison within her freedom will vanish. Alex will be able to make her own choices even if that choice is to stay with her kidnapper. The kidnapper being the one man she has always wanted and always loved.

This story leaves you with a cliffhanger. It will not be a stand alone. Rampant is book #2 in the Condemned series and will be released on 10/28/14 so not too much longer to wait.
