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+.

My Review

I can't even begin to tell you what a HUGE fan of Penelope Ward I am. I love all this woman gives me. And once again Penelope has shown me why. From the blurb I was intrigued, the first chapter I was hooked and soon after I was downright addicted.

Ward's ability to tell a tale is incredible. I found her writing just keeps getting better and better. Sevin and Evangeline were two characters that I don't think I will soon forget. Their struggles were real and more importantly their love was beautiful. I love tales of forbidden romance and this one almost broke my heart. The raw emotion was killer as was waiting at the sidelines to see how the story was going to play out. I immediately loved Sevin and Evangeline stole my heart! From the minute they meet you can feel it, their connection is so bloody powerful it shines. I just needed them to be together forever!

My heart broke for both Sevin and Evangeline while reading and there were points where I wondered if I was going to get the ending I needed them to have. I felt so many emotions while reading that I honestly could not put it down. I had tunnel vision needing to just shut out the world to focus on this powerful tale of love, loss, betrayal, and redemption.

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.
