Hello all and HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!

I’m not sure what to say but what I already said because I’m not sure you’ll start here or there!! ;) So here we go again...feel free to skip my maundering and get to the love if you like.

I have to say my holidays have changed over the years, of course as a kid it was Christmas, and then when I first had my girls it was Easter because it’s spring and the egg hunt and pretty dresses and the rest.

But these days my favorite holiday is Valentine’s Day because I just love LOVE. And it isn’t just a couples day, it’s a day to celebrate everyone you love, we’re taught that in elementary school when we make little fancy bags and boxes and are told by our teachers to bring Valentines for everyone in the class, even the boys that pull your pigtails on the playground.

Well, the tables are turned as you grow up and while nobody is pulling my pigtails, I do still love sharing Valentines with everyone. So here is my Valentine for all of you. A very special one, from Perry to his lady love. I can’t tell you her name, it has been a closely guarded secret, but TODAY that secret is out in SUBMISSION: The Rake And The Recluse: Part Five!!!

I’m very excited because this has been a long road to SUBMISSION. I won’t talk about it too much, but my novel THE RAKE AND THE RECLUSE came out last February, and now it has been completely re edited, with all new content and images (it is illustrated) and the final chapters including Perry’s Story.

You will find links and fun stuff...later, let’s get to the letter!!

My dearest, my sweet, my wife,

You know how you tempt me with your formality.

Your endearing letter has moved me to respond. I loved every word, and you have no idea how it excites me to learn you wish to polish me, until I shine. I quite look forward to that.

I feel so blessed every day to wake up with you in my arms. That you have changed my life would be an understatement. Today, of all days, let us celebrate who we are together, and never leave the comfort of each other’s arms.

Today I will worship your body and your soul with all that I am and all that you have helped me to become. A man most deserving of the woman you have always been.

I cannot begin to express in words what it is you have done to me, to find you hiding in my carriage, to have you demand I teach you what it meant to be loved, to have your sweet and pure innocence wash over me like warm satin water, cleansing the deepest parts of my soul, to have you...to simply HAVE you.

I am quite sincerely the luckiest man on earth.

My sweet you have learned every lesson presented you with enthusiasm and passion, you have outdone yourself on many occasions and even, at times, outdone me. This is something I never would have conceived of. In two short weeks you had me, you simply had me.

Whatever it is in you that draws me, that holds me, that takes me away, I wish for it to never fade. You have taken what was my life and turned me inside out. You have seen the worst of me and not turned away, you have seen the best of me and not turned away.

The way I fill you, the way you slide against me, the inherent quality to your movement; that took no lessons, but is simply you. You have turned this on me, taken my lessons and thrown them back at me perforce. I am lost within you...within you...within you. And would never choose to be without.

Your body is on my mind and my heart is in your hands. The way your mind wraps around my senses and pulls tight, stroking ever so gently with your words until I cannot possibly hold on for more. You undo me with a look, a simply touch, the pink of your tongue.

Though I have professed many, there are no words for what you truly mean to me, and so I intend to show you, as often as possible. In as many ways as I am able, I will endeavor to to speak to the very heart of you. I told you once that when I set my mind to something there would be no doubt of when it happened. So let me set my mind to this, a task I fear (with the greatest of hope) will be never ending. It is time we discussed these talents you would prefer I not be without.

Put down this letter, and come join me in the bath.
I want to put my mouth on you.

Ever yours,
Perry
