As readers who have seen, bought and read several boxedsets with multiple authors, I'm sure you wonder, how did the author chose their particular story? or why did this author decide to do a box set? or What's the purpose?. Well, I'm bringing you those answers.
Today I present to you, Erosa Knowles, the author of "Double Trouble: Men of 3X CONstruction" in Scandalous Heroes...
If you know anything about Ms. Knowles writing...you know she is bold, confident and she loves to challenge writers to look at their preconceived views or address dark secrets of hurt or shame to learn to love again. I mean only a writer that daring would put together a series of heroes that are ex-cons. I'm sorry did I not say a SUCCESSFUL series? That's right. So, discover what this writer is all about.
Blaine and Donald had no idea they have not one, but two sons from Belinda, the one woman who ever came between them. Seeing her again test family ties as they fight to rescue their son and reclaim the only woman they ever loved.
SASSE: Tell me how you came up with the plot for your story in the Scandalous Hero boxed set.
Erosa: I had readers asking for the twins story and I was hard pressed to write a story about Dominant Twins. I could not imagine how to make it a romance. Plus, how to split them up, when it had already been hinted in previous stories that they couldn’t be. I had a reader who lives the lifestyle as a submissive to her husband suggest they share the same woman. According to her, that was not taboo in BDSM. But making it a romantic, believable read was a challenge. Once I realized I needed to remain true to the previous story lines, I started seeking reasons why a woman would accept two men, why would she remain with them, and what kind of woman would she be? Inexplicable love of two men who were so similar it was impossible to separate them, and she would need to have a part of them both to keep them connected. That’s how I devised the plot for Double Trouble.
SASSE: Is your story connected to a series you write?
Erosa: The first book of The Men of 3X CONStruction launched in 2011 and there have been five books identified as Men of 3X CONStruction, and then Loving a Bad Boy was written and since Julio was a part of construction crew, his book is considered number six. Double Trouble is the seventh.
SASSE: What was the most challenging scene to write?
Erosa: The most challenging scene was the discovery that her son had left home with someone he knew despised her. I have kids and all I kept thinking was… don’t make this personal but if it were me… I had to tone it down and focus on her pain, the sense of betrayal, and the need for forgiveness. Kids are basically self-centered and as the adult, she (I) had to let it go.
SASSE: Why did you choose to join the Scandalous Heroes boxed set with these 8 other authors?
Erosa: I was honored when approached to be a part of the collection. I read all of the authors in the set and they are some of my favorites. I knew all of my readers would be super excited to join me in reading the other stories in this book. I thought it was important to make it happen.
SASSE: What do you want the readers/romance world to take away from the collection once they read it?
Erosa: It’s my hope that every reader will pass on a copy to someone who does not read this genre to introduce them to Interracial romance. It is here to stay and should be celebrated. The stories showcase strong men and women falling in love, not matter what challenges fall their way, their love is the star that shines at the end of the story.
