    Summary

    “My parents are gone,” Jamie says. “My mam first, then my da.” He lets the sentence hang there, not requesting pity, or a response even, only presented for her to take, and she acknowledges it with a nod.

    “It can be lonely,” she says.

    “Yes,” he agrees. “But not now.”

    “Not right now,” she says, and holds out her glass for more.

    Summary

    Claire is precariously close to the edge. She loves her job but everyone thinks it's causing her stress. She would love a holiday but can't quite work out how to book the time off. She loves her husband but he wants a divorce.

    It's all starting to be a bit much.

    In a daze, Claire boards a train to a place called Broch Mordha, where a chance encounter leads her to Jamie Fraser, the new owner of the dilapidated 'Dragonfly In Amber' Inn. Claire needs a place to stay whilst she attempts to put her life back together and Jamie needs a paying guest to help cover the cost of fixing the roof. Realising that they need the other to get through the next four weeks, it soon becomes obvious to everyone in the small Highland town that Claire and Jamie were meant for each other.

    Now, if only they could realise that as well...

    Summary

    "Stop, stop, Dougal. . ." I sigh, "Let me see if I'm understanding you, okay?"

    He shrugs, "Go ahead."

    "Your nephew needs to get married in order to continue to live and work in the U.S. Right?"

    "Aye."

    "And, presumably, he wants to marry a woman, yes?"

    "Indeed so."

    "And due to a highly unfortunate clerical error, this marriage needs to happen within the next two days."

    "Ye'er three fer three."

    "So. . ." I rub my temples, "The first person you thought to ask for such a massive favour. . . was the woman who won a workplace harassment suit against you last year?"

    "Aye, a'course," he nods, "Ye'er the perfect choice."

    Modern day AU with a twist. Apparently not for everyone, so please buckle up, keep your arms and legs inside the ride vehicle at all times, and read the tags. Thank you for your cooperation.
