Location: Carlton, North Yorkshire, England, Planet Earth                   Date: early-2300

It might be the 24th century, but the feudal baron lives on. Wealthy industrialist Remus Tallantyre has homes on Mars, the Moon and Planet Earth, and an inter-planetary spaceship that will power him wherever he wants to go, but he still feels the need to rule his staff’s lives with working conditions that belong to the Middle Ages. When his loyal butler, Ezkeil Manton, falls in love with a colleague, their path to happiness seems doomed in the face of non-fraternisation rules. Then fate changes everything…

*** Please note!!!! ***

This story is not a typical, soppy, boring romance between two young lovers. If you want sex, look elsewhere. This story is actually quite gritty, dark even - which plays on the genuine frustration between two perfectly good, decent people with an obvious attraction to each other, but unable to do anything about it due to the power held by Remus Tallantyre. Will they drift apart? Will the red mist descend to take out the ultimate revenge? Will a mystery person come into their lives? Bet you are intrigued now…

Oh yes and the first draft of the story took eight days to write…
