    Summary

    “Tell me a story, Jamie,” said Claire. Her voice was content and lazy as her head rested on Jamie’s lap. He was running his fingers through her curls, combing them out just to watch them spring back into wild disarray.

    ...

    “Alright then, Sassenach. I’ve got a story for ye...though ye may regret asking by the time we’re through.”

    Summary

    Jonathan Wolverton Randall lives through the Battle of Culloden. Returning home to a young, grieving, pregnant wife, his self-control will be tested and, ultimately, broken. In desperation, a distraught Mary flees to the standing stones at craigh na dun, and unwittingly travels forward in time to 1948. Sent to live with Claire and Frank (of whom she cannot help but foster an incurable fear), she is forced to acclimate to a bizarre new setting in 20th century Boston. But when Claire realizes that Mary had miscarried Alex Randall's child back in 1746, and is now pregnant with "Black Jack" Randall's child (Frank's all-important ancestor), all three of them must travel back through the stones to the past: Frank into an unavoidable existential crisis, Claire into the waiting arms of Jamie Fraser, and Mary into the considerably less warm hands of her sadistic husband "Black Jack" Randall, to secure Frank's life...

    Summary


    Sparks fly when tree surgeon, James Fraser first meet the editorial assistant for a London-based publishing company, Claire Beauchamp two days before Christmas. As they get to know each other, an intense fascination and attraction develop, and they spend a night in each other's arms. After a mishap that nearly ended a promising start of a love affair, Claire decides to forgive and give Jamie and their new relationship another chance.

    Their new relationship is fragile and Claire, who is young, inexperienced in love, and has the world at her feet, is about to put his peaceful world upside down and his resilience to the test. It will not be easy as Jamie's spirit is a little worse for wear after seeing his fair share of war conflicts as a soldier, resulting in him being diagnosed with PTSD. 

    They both come from two different worlds, but they both have a past that connects them. Will their connection be enough to give their flimsy chance, hope for a brand-new future?

    Summary

    Jamie is a witch hunter. Guess who's a witch?

    ***

    The Mackenzie's were an organization of the most infamous witch hunters in the world. Slaying witches was their main priority, and they did it well. Witches were the biggest threat to the world in their eyes, and they made sure they did everything in their power to put them down.

    In order to take down the witch population, they needed to take down the 7 most powerful witches in the world. As of now, the 7th was the only one left standing.

    Jamie Fraser had been looking for her for years, until word reached him that the she had risen to power in New Orleans, Louisiana; the city famous for its history of witches.

    However, when Jamie encounters Claire Beauchamp and starts getting closer to her, he begins to realize that witches may not be as bad as he was taught to believe after all.
