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 age 18+.

An Excerpt from Sins of Sevin

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.

My Review

Sins of Sevin blew me away. I love, love, LOVE, the taboo/forbidden romance. Sevin? He loves to behave badly starting from a young age. His birth mother is gone and his father is a mess until he meets and marries Sevin’s stepmother. The couple becomes very religious and attends church as a family on a regular bases. Sevin is very handsome, dark hair, sky blue eyes, cocky smile and a swagger to match. The ladies swarm all around him and have no problems fulfilling his male needs. And unexpected tragic event takes place, leaving Sevin in a position to make some major decisions causing drastic changes to his life.

Sevin accepts an offer from his father’s long time friend to move to another state and into their guest house and court their daughter Elle, in an arranged marriage!! YUP, you heard that right!! But the catch is he will one day be handed over the family business. Sevin wants to change his lifestyle and make good choices with a future for himself. He sees a future with taking over a business and having a wife… one he is hoping to learn to love…. What Sevin does not anticipate ,while in route to the family ranch, is meeting Evangeline, Elle’s oldest sister!! The ANGST is off the charts HOT!! heart pounding EXCITEMENT!! … you will laugh and cry! This book takes you on a roller coaster of emotions that you will NOT expect! There were twists and turns that I never saw coming… Penelope does a BRILLIANT job of turning the ordinary taboo story into a phenomenal read. Do not delay in Sinning with Sevin!

Favorite Quote;   “Doing something I knew was wrong was addicting” ~Sevin

“I haven’t forgotten the pain of you leaving or the broken heart you left me with. But you’re also the only one who can heal it. There might have been times when I hated you. But the fact is, I could never hate you more than I love you” ~Sevin

5+2 for SEVIN mind blowing stars! Bravo Miss Ward \o/

    one thing i have learned about lyme dse is that you cant be plpreroy tested and diagnosed until it has been 4-6 weeks since you have been bitten by that tick.earlier than that might produce false positive (meaning you got a positive result but in reality you are not infected) or a false negative (you got a negative result but you are indeed infected) result. in short the diagnosis and the testing is unreliable until after 3-4 weeks has passed.just keep that tick in that box and show it to the doctor when the correct time has arrived. blood testing will be done around 4-6 weeks after the bite to determine if you are infected.
