What happens when the one you want is the only one you can't have?
My name is Sevin.
Homeschooled and sheltered by my ultra-religious family, I was always taught that lust was a sin.
Elle was the girl who'd been carefully chosen for me.
After a long-distance courtship, I'd be moving into her family's guesthouse so that we could get to know each other in the months before the wedding.
Boundaries were set: no inappropriate touching, no kissing, no sex before marriage.
I'd accepted those rules and my fate.
Until I met the one I wanted to sin with.
That was when restraint became a problem...especially since THE ONE wasn't Elle.
It was her sister, Evangeline.
You know what they say about best laid plans.
My name is Sevin, and I have sinned.
Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.
Contains graphic sexual content and harsh language.
Only appropriate for adult readers

SINS OF SEVIN EXCERPT
Copyright © 2015 by Penelope Ward
He quietly followed me into the dining room, carrying the flatware. The tension in the air was thick as he walked behind me around the oval table, setting down silverware after each plate I’d put down. It was like some weird game of musical chairs where awkward silence replaced the music. The hairs on my back stiffened. We weren’t saying anything, but it was as if I could feel the weight of a thousand words along with the heat of his body so close behind me.
When I noticed he’d just put a fork where the spoon was supposed to go, I switched it. “The forks go on this side, actually.” My hand was shaking. I couldn’t believe how little control I had over myself.
Noticing my nerves, he suddenly placed his hand over mine and whispered, “Stop.”
Chills ran through me. My heart started to beat faster. My nipples hardened. I hated my body for responding to him with equal amounts of fear and lust.
I turned to him, his hand still over my knuckles. It felt like I couldn’t breathe as he just looked at me.
My mother’s footsteps caused Sevin to move his hand off mine with lightning speed.
Mama entered, and we continued setting the table as if our stolen moment hadn’t happened.
Review by Lys
"It was unfortunate that the one woman who made me feel alive was the only person in the world I couldn't have." ~Sevin
Sins of Sevin is a breathtaking, beautiful story about a boy who never let go and a girl who sacrificed everything for the love of her sister. This story will leave a mark on your heart and tears in your eyes. Sevin and Evangeline's journey is an emotional tale of forbidden love, heart break, and forgiveness. From the very start, their story grips you and holds you hostage to the events that take place. With a compelling storyline and a surprise revelation, you are sure to be consumed from start to finish. In classic Penelope Ward tradition, her characters find their way into your heart. Sevin, stands amongst the men. His transition from a careless, punk teen to a man of integrity is simply...swoon worthy. THIS man is a true book hero. His ability to love unconditionally despite his own hurt was inspirational. Sins Of Sevin was a remarkable follow-up to the delectable Cocky Bastard and I HIGHLY recommend it! Penelope Ward has once again written a phenomenal novel, and I can't wait for you all to read it!♥
"Needing him with all my heart and soul may have been a sin, but it was the truth. He was my truth. Even if that made me a sinner." ~Evangeline
