Teaser (from part 1 of story):
I began again and resolved to eat my dinner off the floor because surely it would be clean enough. I reversed on my knees to the kitchen door, dragging the cloths and the bucket, swearing under my breath, raising a hand to push falling hair away from a sweaty forehead.
A deep voice spoke. ’You do not answer your street door, Lady?’
I crawled around like an invalid to face my interlocutor. He looked down at me, a tip to the side of a straight mouth, his wild hair lying on his collar, his black tunic and breeches a mark of a greater house than the one in which I currently sat on my haunches.
I stood. My heart beat enough to make the fabric in my shirt tremble, I was sure. ‘Lord?’
‘I have come for the taxes.’
‘But I . . .’

as of 7.26.10: So far, I'm loving the eye candy, althouth there is more to the eye with the main characters.
The swoon factor in this storyline is also a fun one to experience - for those of you who like a good romance.
more thoughts to be added as the story continues
* FOOF - Feast On Online Fiction is a new regular feature I'm adding to my blog where I share online serial fiction created by fellow bloggers some of whom are established authors.
This is my first post for FOOF and each one will be updated with the story links as posted by author.
For this post I've included brief descriptions of each post - a sort of table of contents.
