I don't know...AAR's sensuality ratings are fine for me (though just a tad out of date, author/imprint-wise): http://www.likesbooks.com/kissburn.html

Can you suggest particular authors you're interested in? It's a very large genre.

I mean like lisa kleypas,julia quinn,monica mcarthy or rather could you suggest sites which give sensuality ratings along with book review?

Well, this site does! Also, Karen Knows Best (www.karenknowsbest.com) recently started using a sensuality rating, though only for the last several reviews.

Lisa Kleypas I would call hot, Julia Quinn warm, haven't read enough McCarthy to say.

The sensuality ratings on this site should give you a pretty good sense of what different authors writing is like.

I would agree with the previous poster that Lisa Kleypas is hot and Julia Quinn is warm. If you like these authors some others to try are:

Mary Balogh: Warm (The Bedwyn Series is a good place to start, especially Slightly Dangerous although this is actually the last book in the series and you may want to read the others first)

Loretta Chase: Warm to Hot

Julie Garwoods: Hot, although these were written awhile ago and are not as hot as some more recent authors (I don't like her suspense novels but her historicals are great)

Elizabeth Hoyt: Hot, If you like Kleypas you'll probably like her

Eloisa James: Hot, not as good as Kleypas but decent

Stephanie Laurens: Hot
