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!!

The Love Letter:

My Lord Perry,


    As you have requested, I am practicing my written communication by writing to you. Though I do not see it as a chore, it does seem to be a bit troublesome, as I have difficulty finding words for you even without a quill.

    I cannot imagine my life without you. The day I crawled into your carriage and escaped my past was the day that changed the path of my life. If there had not been you, there would not be me.

    As you can readily see, I practice every single day, I want you to be proud of me. More than that I want people to see past who I am; to see who you really are and what it is you have truly accomplished. I do not want to be your tarnish.

    I wish to rub you clean, to shine you, so that no one who sees you will be left in doubt as to how well polished a man you are. You are brave and strong, and so very...very.

    You know I have difficulties still, with this...but I practice. And I love you. For who you are, for who you were, for who you are becoming. I have to love your past for if it weren’t so, there would never have been us. As well, it has given you certain talents that I would prefer to not go without.

    So today I say yes to your proposal, we shall lock ourselves away and not listen to the pounding on the door, or the complaints of your staff. Today we will shut away and I will learn from you, whatever you have to teach me. I believe you had a few more things to show me concerning your cravat, and those brackets on your headboard.

With my deepest regards,

Your Viscountess

    1. Di, it will eventually go to print. Probably this spring, but as it is illustrated it costs a bit more to produce than a regular trade paperback. You can read it on your computer, or a smartphone as well though. :)
