Selkies for the Holidays!

Hello there,

It’s now less than a week until Ocean’s Touch releases, and I thought I’d share with you a sexy sample. So I’ve gone ahead and shared with you Chapter Three. It’s definitely NSFW but definitely SETHYGTTH. (Sexy Enough To Help You Get Through The Holidays).

I’ll also be holding some contests very shortly to win an ARC of the book, but for right now feel free to dive into my world of sexy selkies.

You can read the excerpt here.

Ocean’s Touch Sold!


It is with great pride and pleasure that I announce the sale of Ocean’s Touch, an erotic romance featuring selkies, to Heather Osborn at Samhain Publishing.

Here’s the blurb:

A lonely widow and a handsome artist have a chance for happiness…with the help of a sexy selkie, that is.

After the death of Meredith’s husband many years before, she allowed his legacy to take over her life. A shell of a woman, she finds little joy in her day-to-day tasks. Drawn to her pain, the empathic selkie Dylan knows she’s ready to live and love again, and he knows that he’s just the man for the job.

As Dylan draws Meredith out of her shell, he realizes that to truly free her, he needs to help her accept her budding love for Alexander, an artist who challenges Meredith on every level: intellectually, emotionally and sexually. To achieve a true happy ending, Dylan must help his chosen humans break down their emotional barriers in order to grab the happiness they so deserve.

I think I’m most excited at having a warning label:

This book features a lonely widow, a hot artist waiting in the wings, and the sexy selkie who brings them together…in every possible way. 

Stay tuned, as very shortly we’ll be posting a very sexy snippet. I’ll also be asking for some feedback on this website and its content, for which I’d very much appreciate your help. Thanks again, and I hope you enjoy Denise’s work.

Ocean’s Touch will release digitally on December 27, 2011, and you can pre-order your copy here.
