Meg asked Bella Andre:

Hi Bella. This may be a slightly left-field question.... but I am asking out of professional interest as a sexual health researcher. What are you thoughts on including references to safe sex (e.g. condoms, contraception) in sex scenes? Is it important for your characters to consider these issues, or do you think it just kills the romance? Thanks!

Bella Andre Hi Meg! My characters always have safe sex. I don't think it kills the romance, but I think it is important to write that part of the scene in such a way that it doesn't jolt my reader out of the book.
