About Erosa Knowles

I’ve been a published author since 2009 writing multicultural romance. My first book, Special Forces, was a story about a military guy in a contract marriage. Living in a military town and knowing a couple of females who were involved with this type of arrangement, I was off and running. Professionally, I was involved in Real Estate and knew if all the trades were in one company, it wouldn’t take long to build a house. During that time, the Governor of Michigan boasted of a training program for convicts in various trades that allowed them to become successful after prison. Those two factors led to the Men of 3X CONStruction, a 7 book series that originally had been planned for 3 books.

Afterward, I wrote various kinds of books that spoke to me about injustice, social perils, cross-starred lovers, paranormal, siblings and even a book about a male submissive. Variety keeps the creative juices flowing and me a happy person.

I read more than I write. I have varied interests and read everything, from historicals to Christian fiction to Sci-Fi. Good writing makes for great reads. Thanks for your interest and support over the years.

Entrepreneur Theodore Barnes recently learned that his mother was murdered 19 years ago and is searching for the truth.

With a net worth of over a billion dollars, life should be sweet, right? That’s what Theo thought until he learned the same person who murdered his grandfather’s attorney plans to kill him and everyone he loves. It’s a short list. Imani, his lady, tops that list. Even without his inheritance, he’d never tuck tail and run from anyone who thought it was cool to kill an unarmed old man. 

Imani Randall would love Theo with or without his inheritance. After the hell she went through with her ex-husband, his rough, straight-up, personality suits her just fine. She decides to work alongside him in his newly acquired companies and is swept away by the changes his wealth and inheritance bring. With enemies gunning for them, she agrees to keep their engagement a secret as she falls deeper in love with this complicated man.

Theo’s grandfather had his fingers in a lot of pies and there are those who expect Theo to continue in the old man’s footsteps. Except Theo’s not his grandfather and has no interest in doing those things. All he wants is to be left alone with his woman to live an uncomplicated life and he’s willing to fight for that right.

Letting Go

Have I Told You Lately

He released her hand and placed both his palms on the counter behind her, caging her in. “Tell me when’s the right moment to tell another person your past bullshit, your damn secrets that you don’t wanna face, your skeletons?” His eyes skewered hers. Everyone claimed to want to know shit, but there was a price to the telling.
“I know people who marry and never share some of their secrets,” he said, inching closer. “A lot of shit dies with them. How do you know when it’s right to share? Because I’ve no idea how to ride that train.”
The pink tip of her tongue leisurely moistened her lips. “I think when you care about someone, you build to a level of trust and you take them into your confidence.”
A level of trust, Women bullshit.
“Yeah, but that’s the problem. It’s easier to give your body, than your deep personal shit.”
She ducked her head.
He continued speaking in a low whisper. “I mean the real stuff that’s close to your heart. The fucked up shit everybody keeps locked up. Most folk don’t get close enough to ever see the dark places inside.” He watched her swallow hard.

Not This Time

This is a short story in the men of 3X CONStruction series hightlighting a romance between two favorite characters from earlier books. Frank is Red's brother and Veronique, is Cherise's mother. Enjoy!

Loving A Bad Boy

It never occurred to her that she had been denied her most important patient. 

On the best days, you’d never put these two together. They had contradicting points of view on life. One believed in saving life at all costs, the other – not so much. One valued honesty, the other believed truth should be couched in shades of gray. One believes in love, the other refuses to think long term. Nevertheless, they become the breath the other needs to survive, proving once again, everyone needs love. Even Bad Boys.
