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.
Penelope is a master storyteller. This book grabs you at the very start and keeps you involved and engrossed from page one. I started it late at night thinking I'd read a few pages and continue the next day and next day and so on until I finished by tour day. That was so naive of me. Once you start, you can't help but want to keep going and see where Sevin's story leads you.
When P wrote Stepbrother Dearest I thought, this is different, a little taboo and probably naughty. She took on a tough subject for some to wrap their heads around and she does it again in Sins of Sevin. The character development is extraordinary, the plot and exceptional writing keep you wanting more and the hotness factor in this book is off the charts.
The blurb and excerpt give you all of the information about the actual story you are going to get from me- I don't want you to miss experiencing anything for yourself by spoiling it. Just know, Sevin is hot as a firecracker, vulnerability peeking its way through at times, making him even hotter, the chemistry- sexual and otherwise- between him and ______ ;) is sweet perfection and you will want the sweetest taboo for these characters to come to fruition, I guarantee it.
A definite five star read, you are completely missing out on one of my favorite reads of the year if you do not snatch this one up right now. ~ Kellie, Eye Candy Bookstore
