Sins of Sevin

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


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?

It was set in stone. Elle and I were getting married. After years of rebelling against everything good and wholesome, I finally gave in and took up with a nice girl.

After a long-distance relationship, I moved into her family’s guesthouse so we could spend time together in the months before the wedding.

Elle was unlike anyone I'd ever been with. She was so innocent, and I had to respect her choice to wait until after we were married to have sex.

I’d accepted that as my fate--even learned to control my desires.

Until I met her…the one.

That was when restraint became a problem…especially since “the one” wasn’t Elle.

It was her sister, Evangeline.

And I was screwed.

Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.

Be prepared for an intensely emotional read!

Be prepared for an intensely emotional read!

I loved the emotions that came through in this story, and “intense” doesn’t even BEGIN to describe how much I felt throughout this whole book! Penelope is definitely very talented at getting a reader to feel exactly how she wants them to feel!

Sevin was absolutely wonderful to read! Tortured, sexy and sensitive all at the same time, he is currently my new book-boyfriend.

Evangeline was fighting her own demons, and the combination of her and Sevin, especially in the first half of the story, was some of my favorite writing.

While I wasn’t in love with the major aspect introduced in the latter part of the story and how it all played out (no spoilers!!!), the writing was still phenomenal and kept me glued to the pages.

This was my first “exclusively-written-by-Penelope” book, and if all of her books are this well-written, she just might be one of my new favorite authors!

Review: Sins of Sevin

A complete story. A standalone romance. A forbidden love story. I knew all this going in and I was still gut-wrenched, heart-broken, frustrated, happy, slack-jawed, and speechless in turns.

Sevin is fighting the bonds of a devoutly religious family (read as bible bashing step-mother) and makes his escape by the way of an arranged marriage (of sorts). The bride-to-be, after all the proper courting and chaperoned time together is the daughter of his fathers friend and this arrangement is his ticket out of his own personal hell. Elle is a pretty, quiet woman with no aspirations beyond being a good wife and mother. That is he goal and more power to her. It's not about judging the dream but achieving the dream. When Sevin meets Evangeline, Elle's sister, for the first time the connection he has never felt with Elle or anyone is overpowering. It leaves him questioning, and her heartbroken when she realizes this is the intended husband of her sister.

This story is complicated and deep, and I couldn't put it down. My own brief synopsis above barely covers the first tenth of the book. The characters are dimensional and flawed and Penelope has really hit it out of the park with this story. It is so different from the usual romance tales - it was refreshing. And don't get me wrong - I blog about books because I LOVE the usual romance tales too. But the occasional outlier is a gem, and Sins of Sevin is one of those gems.

Okay to read

The book was okay. Not what I expected. There should have been a better ending for it. I thought the main character was weak. I don't know how she could give her child away. Selfish. Overall, it was alright.
