Excerpt from "My Comic Valentine":
Penny’s skin heated up as he ran his hand further down the terry cloth encasing her body. From her breasts, he slid his hand over her belted waist, and on down to caress her abdomen and thigh…
She basked like a great cat beneath the stroking of her master’s hand, enticed, yet not moving a muscle. She heard Bobby’s breathing deepen as he stroked the curves of her body, and she looked at the arousal beneath his own robe.
“If I was a cat, I’d be purring right now,” she said huskily.
“I thought you were purring.”
She chuckled. “Wait—I think you’re right.”
He slid his right hand up inside the robe’s lapels and caressed her neck. She arched her chin up in a feline gesture that begged for more.
“I want to take my time. Do you mind?”
“No,” she mumbled, “why would I mind? This feels great. I don’t want to rush anything.”
“After thinking about you all these months, imagining what it’s like to be with you…I don’t want to rush the real thing.”
He slipped his hand further inside her robe. She grew hotter as his hand closed to encompass the roundness of her breast. He clasped her hard nipple between his thumb and forefinger, swirling them around its tip, squeezing and releasing repeatedly. She reached her arms up to embrace and kiss him.
He pulled back, unlatching her arms. “No, wait,” he murmured, “not yet. Let me.”
“But I want to feel you—”
She obeyed, dropping back to the pillows as he reached for her belt. He loosened it, opening the robe just enough to reveal part of her chest and belly. He ran the back of his hand along her golden skin before pushing her lapels apart for full exposure of her breasts.
“Mmm,” he said in a pleased voice. “They’re more beautiful than I’d imagined.”
“You imagined them?”
“Oh, yeah. I’m not kidding—I thought of you a lot while I was gone. I often fantasized about you.”
She said nothing, only arched her back up as an invitation for him to take her flesh. He complied by grasping the lapels of her robe and yanking the robe away, pulling it down her back and arms. The rush of cool air against her hot skin made her nipples pucker. Bobby smiled, massaged her breasts, and lowered his mouth to taste her.
