About the Book

Title Blue
Genre Contemporary Gay Romance
Author DP Denman
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Long before he was a successful songwriter and black-belt badass, Blue was a survivor.
He escaped a program designed to cure him. Instead, it left him near death with nothing to rely on but the kindness of a stranger. Hostile and headstrong, Blue needs a calmer influence to balance his fury. Someone to save him from himself.
Brady’s life was quiet and orderly until fate sent him a blue-eyed hurricane. Bursts of temper and flashes of despair batter his efforts to quiet the storm in a man he doubts he can tame, one drowning in the wreckage of his past.
With a head full of lies and a body full of scars, Blue works to rebuild his life with the help of a man determined to prove sometimes trust is worth the risk.
Blue features one of the most popular characters of the Saving Liam saga! Destined for greatness, he reveals the past that made him the scarred bad boy readers love.

Interview with M.S. Kaye

Why did you write
this book?
The inspiration for this book I actually found while writing
another book, though the stories are not at all connected. I started wondering
about if a scene had gone another way.
What is your favorite
genre to read?
Uhh…that’s a hard question. I like everything from Charlotte
Bronte to Steinbeck, Harry Potter to O. Henry, Twilight to Jane Austin.
Who is your favorite
character from fiction (not including your own)?
Jane Eyre. She’s the perfect example of quiet and strong, an
unusual pairing in fictional females, and not easy to write.
What are you working
on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
This is going to be a CRAZY year. I have eight books
releasing in 2016. Yes, eight. All three books in the Once series (contemporary
romance), two books in the Born from Death series (YA paranormal), three books
in the Taken series (romantic suspense)
Please tell us about
your latest book.
Her first and also her
Jonathan and Rebecca’s paths cross at exactly the right
moment, when each most needs to hear what the other has to say.
But Jonathan is three days from entering the priesthood, and
Rebecca leaves him to his peace. But he is unable to find peace.
Without each other’s comfort and strength, they must each
struggle to forge a new path, with only memories of the one day that changed
But are they able to forget
and let go?
