Part of the 2015 Don't Write in the Closet Anthology

Eric is a broken man. When his latest attempt at salvation fails, he believes he's out of options. No one cares whether he survives. Not even him and he saw a solution in the violent temper of his current lover.

One more time, his plan doesn't work the way he'd expected. Instead of a fiery afterlife, his reward is a hospital bed and the unexpected attention of a stranger who appears in his room to read him books. He doesn't understand the motivation of a man who goes out of his way to help someone he doesn't know, but one visit at a time, Marcus starts to grow on him. 

Eric doesn't believe kindness ever comes without strings. Marcus doesn't believe kindness should ever come with them and Eric must decide whether Marcus' offer is real or just another ploy to lure him in.

About the Story

Don't Write in the Closet is an annual tradition for the MM Romance Group at Goodreads. Readers submit a story idea along with a related picture and each participating author picks their favorite. In this case, the story isn't inspired by fantasy. It's true. Eric was a real kid in a bad situation, betrayed by everyone who had ever offered to help him. No one knows what really happened to him, but the person who submitted the story idea wanted Eric to have the happy ending he deserves. 

Most of my stories start that way. The characters are fictional. The situation isn't. 

Sometimes love comes from unexpected places. So does tragedy.

When David arrived on Vancouver Island, Jack thought he was just another tourist. A few hours on the water together proves he is more than that. As a world traveler, David is a man of mystery who has been everywhere and seen everything. Attraction draws Jack to him, but his attempt at a meaningless fling fails one touch at a time. The love affair sparks fear in David and jealousy in Emerson, the man who frequents Jack’s bed in a relationship of empty sex. 

At odds with the men in his life, Jack tries to talk David into staying and Emerson into going. Will the attempt leave him empty handed?

Praise for Changing Tide

"If you’re in the mood for some romance to lift up your spirits during these dark autumn days, Changing Tide would be a great choice."
I Heart Reading Reviews

"...CHANGING TIDE delivers a solid story to get lost in. With the right balance of intriguing characters, a fast paced storyline and a twist the reader doesn’t see coming, I was blown away by it all. I can’t wait to see what else this author has in store for his readers in the future."

Praise for Dancer's Heart

"As a fan of the m/m genre I'm always on the lookout for authors that are new to me and found one in DP Denman…with her suspenseful and pulse-pounding new m/m release, Dancer's Heart."     
Words of Wisdom....from The Scarf Princess 

"I anticipated a book about a guy having an angst-filled break up with an asshole ex before moving on to a super dreamy, perfect new guy.What I actually got was so much better than that."
