April has arrived with an erotic treat for you, and as always, Lovehoney's Book of the Month comes with a free gift! Enjoy a Cupid's Mini Bullet along with Beth Kery's bestselling erotic novel: Because You Are Mine.
Authors are frequently asked what inspires their characters, so we asked Beth Kery and she enlightened us on the inspiration for her main characters:
"I envisioned him almost like a Harlequin Presents type billionaire tycoon made about a thousand times sexier… There has to be some sort of crack in this type of controlled, powerful character, some wound that the heroine helps heal."
"It's often the young and innocent who see most truly, and that's certainly the case with Francesca. As an artist, she has the ability to see the world with unique clarity, and that includes Ian Noble."
Lovehoney's Erotic Book of the Month is Release Me by Julie Kenner. When you pick up your copy from Lovehoney during March you receive a free Silver Collection Silky Neck Tie Restraint - worth $14.99!
New York Times and USA Today bestseller author J Kenner explains what makes Release Me special:
"In Release Me - and the entire Stark Trilogy - I wanted to tell a story that was both wildly romantic and also deliciously sensual and erotic. I found that story in Nikki and Damien: they are two people who are so clearly meant for each other, despite their own deep-seated issues and the external trials they face.
"Damien may not be a perfect man, but there is no doubt that he is perfect for Nikki. This is a fact he proves to her over and over in the bedroom and, more importantly, in her heart."
Pick up this erotic title today and soon you can enjoy your own red-hot scenes of lust and bondage with the free Silky Neck Tie Restraint. For inspiration, we recommend the steamy scene in Chapter 20!

I have more than a few shelves filled with books in my home; dirty, sexy, erotic books. To me they all represent one thing - escapism. I can indulge in my favorite fantasies and sometimes discover things I never even knew could turn me on with the simple turn of a page. I used to think of my collection of erotica in terms of simply books, but now I refer to them as my shelves of mind candy because that's what they are to me.
Some are full of fantasies, some of which I may decide to act out for myself. Some will stay locked in the deepest recess of my mind, until I feel the need to take matters into my own hands. Some have not been for me but have opened up my mind and taken me on a journey as the author took the main characters through their paces.
Just like candy, erotic books come in all shapes, sizes and cater to most tastes. It's just a case of finding the right candy for you… So if you are sitting comfortably, lets take a look at some of the mind candy that can be found.

The Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, including Fifty Shades Freed, Fifty Shades Darker has been heating up bedroom and bathroom scenes since before Mother’s day. I’ve spoken with very few people who haven’t heard of this NYtimes bestseller and a much larger number (mostly women) who have. From my friends in the scene who tend to have their reservations and doubts, to the more vanilla in the bunch who have stories of receiving it from coworkers or friends of friends - many have had the steamy erotica cross their path.
Queerie Bradshaw suggests that the advent of the e-readers and the ability to read anything without the conspicuous cover showing has helped facilitate Fifty Shades’s pervasiveness. I think that helps but it’s not the whole story, as I’ve seen many photos of the physical paperback selling out in stores and posted on instagram as beach or airplane reading. For example, the woman sitting next to me on my recent flight home from NYC had no qualms about reading Fifty Shades Freed during the flight. I wish I had taken the opportunity to chat her up about the story’s appeal, but I’m not always so bold.
