She found him on the beach. His clothes spoke of wealth, his hands told of work, but it was the scars on his face that told Nan who the man before her was, Sir William Horton, the resident Hero of Ashford. He was the richest man in five counties and a well known bastard. Rumors of every kind were whispered about Ashford's infamous Black Knight, his all encompassing cruelty, his frozen heart, the twisted means by which he found pleasure. Every creature in Ashford knew to give him a wide berth, to keep a wagging tongue still, and eyes trained anywhere but on him when he came into view.

 So when Nan found him and was neither distant, silent nor looking anywhere but directly at him, Ashford's Black Knight began to stumble over the oddity of this girl. Her fearlessness, her honesty, her intelligence, even her unassuming beauty held him captivated. But how could a simple beggar girl be so many things? Who was this woman that held his attention, or more importantly who had she been before coming to Ashford?

Great first chapter! I love the detail you put into it, especially cantankerous. I don't hear that word a lot. XD

"Tell me who would have come once they saw it was I calling in"
                              
                              Or who'd have not who'd of..
                              This is just constructive criticism.. i can see it's been a common mistake between writers these days.. sorry... thank you for the story

this is really touching but nan... your kinks are showing (i.e. hands, back, legs)
Man that ruined the image of him in my head. I actually imagined him barking at her like a dog would.
