♡ Excerpt Reveal ♡ Sins of Sevin by Penelope Ward @PenelopeAuthor @RSofRomance





As he gulped down the water, I watched his Adam's apple moving up and down. I used the opportunity to glance over his sweaty body up close. The top of his underwear was sticking out of his jeans. The smell of him was intoxicating, a mix of cut wood, sweat and cologne. I thought about our talk the other night, how he'd confessed his sexual history. As much as it disturbed me, knowing he'd used that body to give a woman pleasure made me weak with desire. I could only imagine what that would feel like with him.

Elle would find out.

I was still looking down at his abs when he said, "Thank you." My eyes immediately shot up to meet his incendiary stare.

He'd caught me checking him out.

"You're welcome."

His mouth curved into a smile as he handed me back the glass. "How have you been? I haven't seen you much this week."

"Yeah. I've been busy."

"I have something for you," he blurted out in a way that indicated he was anxiously waiting to say it.

"For me?"

"Yeah. Wait here, okay?"

Sevin ran over to where his truck was parked and grabbed something out of the open window.

He returned to where I was standing and handed me a CD.

"What is it?"

"If you like the Smiths, you'll like some of the songs on here. I included a few Smiths songs — the ones from your favorite album, but there's also The Lemonheads, The Pixies... and Pulp."

"You made this?"

"Yeah. I made it for myself and burned you a copy."

"Thanks."

He looked me straight in the eyes and said, "Number ten is my favorite." Then, he walked away.

I immediately took it back to my room and dusted off my old portable CD player.

Lying down on my bed with the sun streaming in, I drowned out the world and listened to every song. When it got to number ten, I paid special attention, knowing he'd specifically called that one out.

The name of the song was Like a Friend. I later found out it was by Pulp. With each lyric, my eyes became heavier until they welled up in tears. The words described to a tee exactly how I'd been feeling about him. The singer was shouting out all his feelings about his friend, that she was everything he shouldn't want, everything that was bad for him, but yet he couldn't stop wanting her. He'd take what he could get even if that just meant being friends. Every single line spoke to me. It was the first time I realized that maybe I wasn't alone in my torment. This situation — whatever was happening between us — was taking a toll on him, too.

I must have listened to the song five times before I went over to the window and looked down at him. At one point, he finally looked up and noticed me. He squinted his eyes to see me through the glare of the sun. I still had my headphones on. He knew I had heard number ten. The look on his face when our eyes locked only confirmed that number ten wasn't just a song. It was his way of speaking to me.

From the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, 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 age 18+.

✿ Excerpt ✿


She smiles and lifts the fruit to her lips and takes a tiny bite, closing her eyes and chewing slowly. Her eyes open, and she smiles at me. "Thank you for today. When I'm with you... I forget to be sad."

I quietly watch her as she finishes her fig and tosses the stem over her shoulder. I reach up for two more and hand one to her.

"You'd better be careful, Tink. That's a dangerous thing." I keep a solemn expression, looking down and shaking my head.

"Is it now?"

"Oh yeah. Do you know what comes after forgetting to be sad?" Her lips twitch as she holds back her smile and lifts her eyebrows in question. "Actually wanting to be happy. You think you're ready for that?"

She gently taps the fig to her bottom lip, and she blesses me with watery eyes and a smile. "I don't know, but I think I'd like to try... with you, I want to try so badly," she whispers, then takes a bite of her fig, her eyes never leaving mine as she chews slowly.

A Beautiful Bastard
by
J.L. Perry

Genre: YA/NA

Cover Design: Soxsational Cover Art

Release Date: September 14th 2015





✾ Synopsis ✾


My name is Carter Reynolds. I was born a bastard and I'll die a bastard. I learnt it at a young age, and nothing and nobody can change that. I'm on a one-way path of destruction, and god help anyone who gets in my way. I hate my life. Actually, I hate pretty much everything.

That's until I meet the kid next door. Indi-freakin'-ana. My dislike for her is instant. From the moment I lay eyes on her, she ignites something within me. She makes me feel things I thought I was incapable of feeling. I don't like it, not one bit. When she looks at me with her big, beautiful, haunting, green eyes, it's like she can see into the depths of my soul. It freaks me the hell out. She's like sunshine and rainbows in my world of gloom and doom. I hate sunshine and rainbows.

********

I'm Indiana Montgomery, my friends call me Indi. Despite losing my mum at the age of six, I have a wonderful life and great friends. My dad more than makes up for the fact that I only have one parent. I'm his little girl, the centre of his world. I adore him.

When Carter Reynolds moves in next door, my life takes a turn for the worse. He's gorgeous — sinfully hot, but that's where my compliments end. He seems hell bent on making my life miserable. He acts tough, but when I look into his eyes I don't see it. I see hurt and pain. To me, he seems lost.

I should hate him for the way he treats me, but surprisingly I don't. If anything, I feel sorry for him. I want to help him find peace. Help him find the light that I know is buried somewhere within his darkness, but, he won't have a bar of it.

He's warned me time and time again to stay away, but I can't. I'm drawn to him for some reason. He's always referring to himself as a bastard. That may be true, but to me, he's more like a beautifully, misunderstood bastard. Whether he likes it or not, I refuse to give up on him.

✿ Excerpt ✿


Leaning forward, so my face is only inches from hers, I say, "I can see that." Her pupils dilate and I hear her breath hitch. I immediately know my effect on her hasn't diminished either. It takes everything in me not to pull her into my arms and squeeze the fucking life out of her. Why did I leave it so long to see her? Just being near her again, makes me feel alive. "It's good to see you again, Indi."

"Well, the feeling's not mutual," she says. She's lying, I can tell. Her body language is saying the complete opposite to her words. She's still a stubborn arse I see. My eyes leave hers, gazing down at her lips. I can't tell you how many times I’ve dreamt of those lips over the past five years. Too many to count. I want to kiss her so bad my fucking chest aches. I let my eyes drop a little lower. First I see is the necklace I bought her. I can't believe she’s still wearing it. It has me smiling like a damn fool. You have no idea what seeing that means to me.

I watch her chest rise and fall as her breathing quickens. She can deny it all she wants, but she's affected by me. "My eyes are up here, buddy," she spits. I want to laugh at her comment. I love her smart mouth. I'm glad this part of our relationship hasn't changed.

Underneath the material of her white top, I can see a hint of her white lace bra covering the swell of her breast. It gives me an idea. I can't help myself. I lift the sponge in my hand until it's hovering over her tits. I hear her gasp when she realises what I'm about to do. I clench my fist tight, the water drips out. It soaks into the fabric of her top, making it transparent. Her nipples harden and so does my cock. Christ. I haven't even touched her yet, and I swear I could break diamonds with this fucker.

Peeling my gaze from her spectacular rack, I make eye contact with her again. I'm feeling quite pleased with myself, but that feeling doesn't last long. The anger I see in her eyes is not what I'm expecting. When did she lose her sense of humour? I guess I should've known from past experience, when it comes to her, I'm playing with fire. Especially since she has five years of pent up anger inside her, towards me.

This is one time I'm not anticipating her next move. So when it comes, I'm totally taken by surprise. She raises her right leg slightly, and then BOOM. She knees me fair smack in the nuts. Hard. Jesus fucking Christ.

All the air gushes from my lungs as pain radiates through my whole body. My dick goes instantly limp. Fuck, I think she just killed it. I'm pretty sure my boys are now lodged somewhere in my throat.

A feral, high pitched sound escapes me as I fall to my knees in agony. "Stay the fuck away from me arsehole," she spits, as she turns and runs inside.

Somebody call an ambulance, I think I'm gonna die.
