A Graphic Outlandish Novel
Jamie, Claire, Murtagh, Dougal, Laoghaire, Geillis Duncan
After too long an absence, Jamie Fraser is coming hom to Scotland - but not witout great trepidation. Though his beloved godfather, Murtagh, promised Jamie's late parents he'd watch over their brash son, making good on that vow will be no easy task. There's already a fat bounty on the young exile's head, courtesy of Captain Black Jack Randall, the sadistic British officer who's crossed paths - and swords - with Jamie in the past. And in the court of the mighty MacKenzie clan, Jamie is a pawn in the power struggle between his uncles: aging cheiftan Colum, who demands his nephew's loytaly - or his life - and Dougal, war cheiftan of Clan MacKenzie, who'd sooner see Jamie put to the sword than annointed Column's heir.
And then there is Claire Randall - mysterious, beautiful, and strong-willed, who appears in Kamie's life to stir his compassion...and arouse his desire.
But even as Jamie's heart draws him to Claire, Murtagh is certain she's been sent by the Old Ones, and Captain Randall accuses her of being a spy. Claire clearly has something to hide, though Jamie can't believe she could pose him any danger. Still, he knows she is torn between choices - a life with him, and whatever it is that draws her thoughts so often elsewhere.
