But first for inspiration, authors are frequently asked what inspires their characters. Beth Kery explains that she had several sources of inspiration for the main characters in "Because You Are Mine".
"I often write sexy alpha males, but Ian was a bit of a departure for me. That’s not to say that as a high-powered business entrepreneur and sexual dominant that Ian isn’t the epitome of an alpha hero. Is he ever!"
"It’s often the young and innocent who see most truly, and that’s certainly the case with Francesca. I wanted Francesca to be strong and talented despite her naiveté—an unpolished jewel that Ian immediately recognises as being priceless."
Did you enjoy last night's Frisky Business?
After 2 episodes it's all beginning to sink in and we're gradually getting used to our fame... (joke!)
Last night saw the Customer Care girls getting well and truly stuck in to the job as they tasted the new range of flavoured lubricants.
Episode 2 also followed the story of how the Annabelle Knight collection came to be, as well giving a hilarious insight in to our Design a Sex Toy competition - which, by the way, has now reopened for 2014 entries!
This episode also lets you in to the world of sex toy recycling and our Rabbit Amnesty programme, which safely disposes of used electrical toys and rewards our customers with loyalty points.
Because we love to treat you, we've decided to put together a prize bundle after every episode, jam-packed full of products featured in the show - so don't forget to watch Lifetime (Sky 156 & Virgin 242) next week too!
Meet the lady who's spelling out how to use sex toys to the nation. Annabelle Knight, Lovehoney's in-house sex and relationship expert, is on a mission to show the masses how to achieve a happy, healthy sex life.
As a presenter for Lovehoney TV, Annabelle has handled and explained more sex toys than we can count, so when she designed her own range of pleasure products we knew they'd be brilliant!
See Annabelle introduce her range in Frisky Business, a fly-on-the-wall documentary that goes behind the scenes at Lovehoney - you can find the programme on Lifetime (Sky 156 & Virgin 242).
Check out Annabelle Knight's sex toy collection to discover exciting new ways of boosting intimate pleasure during solo and shared play.

Unless you've been living under a rock for the past few weeks, you'll know that Lovehoney is the subject of a brand new documentary series!
The first of six one-hour episodes aired last night on Lifetime (Sky 156 & Virgin 242), and we were thrilled to see ourselves onscreen (despite the odd cringe moment!).
Frisky Business offers a unique insight into life at Britain's biggest online sex toy retailer (that's us!), and last night's episode introduced members of the Content, Buying and Customer Care teams.
If you were watching along with us you'll know that highlights of last night's episode include co-director Neal showing off his latest sex toy prototype, Andrea from the Returns Department getting to grips with all 10.5 inches of Bam, and the Content Team experimenting with the Powerful Thrusting Sex Machine. All in a day's work!

You know what it's like - a celebrity does something one day, and next thing you know, everyone's at it.
If Kylie Minogue's new song "Sexercize" is anything to go by, I think we'll be seeing people abandoning the gym for a more hands-on approach to fitness.
The Australian beauty - singer of classics such as "I Should Be So Lucky" and "Spinning Around" - has stripped down in her new music video to proclaim the benefits of "sexercize".
And she's not the only one! Even the NHS has recommended sex as a great way to burn calories, and we've blogged before about sex positions that double as a workout.
Read on for our favourite products that help you stay fit the fun way, and to see Kylie's sexy new video.
