Sensuous by Katherine Hawthorne

(Sinful Surrender Quartet, Book 2)

Sinful, Book 1 in the Sinful Surrender Quartet, must be read before Sensuous.

Xander was an enemy I never saw coming.

A devastating betrayal shattered our relationship before it ever began, my attempt to escape going horribly wrong. But telling Xander it’s over proves to be a dangerous mistake, revealing a ruthless side of him I was only beginning to suspect. Surrounding me with bodyguards, he swears he’ll go to any lengths to protect me. I swear he’s keeping me prisoner.

Sin was a lie I believed from the beginning.

Instinct warned me we’d crash and burn. A warning I should have heeded. No less his prisoner than Xander’s, Sin is just as ruthless, his determined seduction unrelenting. My suspicions behind his motivations only intensify when he refuses to leave my bed, softening his threats of restraint with a wickedly suggestive laugh I no longer believe.

I was deceiving them both.

Two men who will stop at nothing to ensure I’m theirs. Two men I no longer trust. Yet I’m powerless against my own desires, caving under their dual assault, unable to resist a decadent temptation I’d only gotten a taste of. I tell myself neither man will keep me from my investigation, but as shocking secrets are exposed, I question where my loyalties lie and just how much I’m willing to sacrifice for justice. Ultimately, I know there is only one inescapable truth…revealing the killer will destroy us all.

AUTHOR’S NOTE: This book is intended for mature audiences due to explicit language and sexual content. Sensuous is a ménage romance that’s all about the girl. There are NO M/M scenes. Sensuous ends in a cliffhanger.

The Sinful Surrender Quartet should be read in the following order:

Sinful (released 28 August 2018)
Sensuous (released 2 October 2018)
Scandalous (Coming Soon)
Shameless (Coming Soon)


I recently read SINFUL (read my review here) and was eager to read SENSUOUS, the second book of the series. I was lucky enough to be granted a copy from NetGalley and BooksGoSocial to read and review.  Here is my honest review in my own words. 

Well…. what can I say?   Sensuous is a steaming hot sequel.  Just what I needed after that SINFUL cliffhanger. 

This is part two of a four-part story telling the tale of an exceptionally erotic threesome – a relationship between a woman and two men. Two men who she trusted completely until she received information that makes her question everything she thinks she knows! 

The story is a romantic suspense, a heart-pumping all-action thriller, and so much more. There are many twists and turns, unexpected events – it is a fascinating mesmerising high-speed ride!

Katherine Hawthorne, your writing is fantastic and pulls the reader into the page!  … but may we ask that you please write faster…. we need the next book!

Katherine Hawthorne is the sexier, erotic side of a bestselling romantic mystery author. She loves sexy alpha males and books that come with warnings. By far, her greatest guilty pleasure is ménage romance, which is exactly what she writes. Shucking off the last vestiges of her oh so proper Ivy League education, she traded tedious academic writing, combined her favorite genres, and found her greatest joy in writing suspenseful erotic romance.

When Katherine isn’t writing, you can find her racing down the ski slopes in the winter and relaxing on the beach in the summer, most likely lost in a book. Married with four children, three of which still live at home, life is a never-ending crazy thrill ride, one she quite happily embraces.
