Sensual Romance Novels

We read romance because we enjoy a good love story, because we like getting to know the characters and to see how they get their happily-ever-after. Many of us also read romance because we enjoy the sexy parts.

Truly sensual romance novels are a treat to read. They go beyond being sexy and instead venture into passionate, gratifying books.

There's nothing wrong with reading books that are sexy for the sake of being sexy, but some readers get something more out of sensual romance novels, such as an exciting and fervent build up between love interests, resulting in a satisfying payoff by the end of the book.

If you're looking for an exciting romance novel to read, here are seven you'll love!

But she also isn't supposed to go against her father's wishes and quit her "respectable" job. It seems Eve has been breaking a lot of rules lately.
