A Contemporary Romance novel
From New York Times bestselling author Penelope Ward, comes a
new forbidden STANDALONE romance!
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

This book was one of adventure, and doing what we wanted or do despite our past. I say that because both the hero and heroine have to overcome things in their past to get to where they want to. With love, heartbreak, and things most of us can’t understand this book takes you on a journey of self redemption.
Sevin was great, he did things that were less then right yet he still try’s to overcome them. While it overcoming them he is thrust into more sin. I loved that he was his own person. He didn’t always make the right choices but he still did right by his responsibilitys. He was one sexy build of sin 🙂
The heroine Evangeline was amazing, she was headstrong and defiant while she still had great values. She pushed buttons and broundries yet is just trying to be true to her self.
The secondary characters play a huge role in this story, they support the hero and heroine thru everything that they go thru. Some a lot more then others, but you never wonder if someone is just a filler. (best way to put it)
The plot was different, it’s something I have read once or twice, but the way it was done was refreshing and new. I didn’t think I would love it as much as I did but I have already read it twice. You will get heartbroken but not as badly as you would expect. Things happen and you can’t help but cry for all the parties involved.
Overall this is an amazing book. If you have ever read anything by this author then you will love this book. She writes such amazing stories. Stories that make you feel whole by the end. Get this you won’t be sorry!!!!!!
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.
