Scandalous Heroes: Yvette Hines Interview

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 (Author Di Topaz) present to you, Yvette Hines, the author of "Sieged by Rym" in Scandalous Heroes...


I have the distinct pleasure to introduce the woman of the day. She was born in San Diego, CA and later moved to the Tidewater area. So, yes she has lived coast to coast. We met while attending College in Southern VA. We spent hours reading and laughing; at ourselves mostly. You see Yvette spends most of her time blazing the sheets. Now get you minds out of the gutter there will be plenty of time for that later. She believes that every woman should have a determined hero that is on the prowl and discover they were designed for love. A man in her life bold enough to steal the bride, because he knew he had to have and to hold her. Eventually finding themselves taking the marriage clause. I know that seems slightly sinful but the fire and desire they would share, would be as sweet as cinnamon buns with sensual chocolate. In the end her hero would continue over the years to pleasure his queen keeping her SASSE for life! It is with great pleasure to introduce to some and present to others Yvette Hines.

They picked the wrong warrior cat to abduct. Rym never liked being ordered about so when he discovers his freedom is weighed against his agreement to breed with Krysteena, he practically purrs at the chance to prove to the beauty who’s truly in charge and escape.
 

 
Di: Tell me how you came up with the plot for your story in the Scandalous Hero boxed set.

Yvette: I can get a romance idea from anything. Especially since I enjoy writing shifter stories. One of my close friends has two cats. They are clever and funny. One day we were laughing at something the cats were doing and I thought aloud, ‘Wouldn’t it be something if Remington (her male cat) was really a big cat from another planet cursed to be on earth? That truly he was a massive powerful, strong cat on his planet?' We laughed about it, but that night when I went to sleep a story was born. I do a lot of dream plotting. I guess my muse likes to work when I'm sleep.

Di: Is your story connected to a series you write?

Yvette: No. It is not. Even though I would hate for these two worlds to fade away. At the moment I have not conceived of a series…but don’t get my muse ,SHE, started, because in a blink she will have started some intergalactic sensual saga.

Di: What was the most challenging scene to write?

Yvette: The arena battle scene. I spent hours and days watching different gladiator type films…especially the fight scenes. I wanted it to be gripping but more importantly I wanted the sensuality. The hero and heroine in Sieged by Rym are not fighting to the death but fighting to have a life together that is balanced in mutual respect and power. They need to learn to give and take in that arena and admire each others strengths. Anytime there is a strong female in a story I think it is important that she doesn’t ‘dwarf’ the hero; that even as she is strong and determined he is not emasculated.

Di: Why did you choose to join the Scandalous Heroes boxed set with these 8 other authors?

Yvette: By now, since mine is the last interview, you have met all the other 8 authors (Aliyah Burke, Bridget Midway, Sienna Mynx, Erosa Knowles, Pepper Pace, Serenity King, Latrivia S. Nelson and Tiana Laveen). They are ladies I have known, watched and applauded for years. Even though a few of them I didn’t meet until last year. Not to say that there are not a lot more multicultural authors that I would not have stepped into a box set with, because there of many, but it was the right time and moment for this group. They all had a heart not only to present a gift to their readers, but to reach out to connect with new readers and on top of that support the other authors with them in the set. What more could I ask for? The best part about it was as I spoke with each author to ask them about coming together to show unity in the multicultural romance community NONE of them hesitated. Proving what I already knew about them.

Di: What do you want the readers/romance world to take away from the collection once they read it? 

Yvette: For the readers I want them to see that they don’t have to choose between authors. They can cheer, support and read all of us. There is no animosity between us, but unity. For the romance world I want authors to see and recognize the benefit of supporting other authors. Cross-promoting is not a bad word. It doesn’t diminish you to post, tweet, share or even gift your readers with a book by another author…it elevates you. I have two saying I use to fellow authors, ‘no one is greater than anyone else’ and ‘we rise and fall together’. What each authors does in the multicultural genre affects us all.

Scandalous Heroes: Erosa Knowles Interview

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.
