Exclusive Excerpt: Sins of the Innocent by Jamie McGuire

sins of the innocent banner

A good while back, before I started blogging, I read and loved the Providence series by bestselling author Jamie McGuire. I fell in love with Jared and Nina’s tumultuous story and was so sad to finish the series. Now… we all have the opportunity to jump back into that world when we experience the story of their daughter—Eden Ryel! Sins of the Innocent, a novella from the Providence series, is out June 28th and I’m so thrilled to share an excerpt from it to share with you guys today!

Pre-order: Amazon | iBooks | Barnes & Noble ✦

Synopsis

sins of the innocentIn the horror show of gods and monsters, Eden Ryel was the star. Conceived of her mother, a Merovingian–a direct descendant of Christ–and her father, the half-human son of a fallen angel, her very existence had prompted The Great War. Prophesied to be the Keeper of the Balance, Eden struggles to realize her purpose.

Levi, the overconfident and charming half-human son of Lucifer takes nothing seriously. Not even when he finally meets the young woman who is destined to end his existence. A common bond is formed under the pressures they face from both sides, but their respective religious texts predict opposite outcomes. Either way, they must choose: war, death, or love.

Excerpt

The violets and fuchsias of the sky reflected off the water, but I still pretended we had all the time in the world. I crossed my legs, getting comfortable on the wooden bench. Morgan rested his arm behind me and then decided to make a fist and let his head rest on his hand.

“I hope we get to have more days like this,” he said.

“Melted ice cream and sticky fingers?” I asked.

“All of it.”

“What makes you think we won’t?”

He shrugged.

The standing hairs on the back of my neck alerted me to something approaching, something not human. It wasn’t until the pungent smell that was Levi hit my nose did I relax.

“Look who it is. My favorite couple,” Levi said, hopping over the bench—and Morgan’s head. Then he wedged his backside between Morgan and me.

Morgan instantly stood and took a few steps back, trying to look casual by shoving his hands into his pockets. I suspected Levi made him nervous—and with good reason.

Levi stretched his hand behind me and across the ledge of the bench, cupping my shoulder and pulling me close. “Hi, gorgeous. Have you missed me?”
