    “Because I wanted you." He turned from the window to face me. "More than I ever wanted anything in my life," he added softly.
    I continued staring at him, dumbstruck. Whatever I had been expecting, it wasn't this. Seeing my openmouthed expression, he continued lightly. "When I asked my da how ye knew which was the right woman, he told me when the time came, I'd have no doubt. And I didn't. When I woke in the dark under that tree on the road to Leoch, with you sitting on my chest, cursing me for bleeding to death, I said to myself, 'Jamie Fraser, for all ye canna see what she looks like, and for all she weighs as much as a good draft horse, this is the woman'"
    I started toward him, and he backed away, talking rapidly. "I said to myself, 'She's mended ye twice in as many hours, me lad; life amongst the MacKenzies being what it is, it might be as well to wed a woman as can stanch a wound and set broken bones.' And I said to myself, 'Jamie, lad, if her touch feels so bonny on your collarbone, imagine what it might feel like lower down...'"
    He dodged around a chair. "Of course, I thought it might ha' just been the effects of spending four months in a monastery, without benefit of female companionship, but then that ride through the dark together"--he paused to sigh theatrically, neatly evading my grab at his sleeve--"with that lovely broad arse wedged between my thighs"--he ducked a blow aimed at his left ear and sidestepped, getting a low table between us--"and that rock-solid head thumping me in the chest"--a small metal ornament bounced off his own head and went clanging to the floor--"I said to myself..."
    He was laughing so hard at this point that he had to gasp for breath between phrases. "Jamie...I said...for all she's a Sassenach bitch...with a tongue like an adder's ...with a bum like that...what does it matter if she's a f-face like a sh-sh-eep?"
    I tripped him neatly and landed on his stomach with both knees as he hit the floor with a crash that shook the house.
    "You mean to tell me that you married me out of love?" I demanded. He raised his eyebrows, struggling to draw in breath.
    "Have I not...just been...saying so?”

  • Claire and Jamie have been game-changers for the romance world, showing that heroes and heroines need not be flat or one-dimensional for readers to eat them up.

  • It is not a light-hearted read, for sure. There's a very high body count, and some brutal torture scenes. But for me all of that was outweighed by the epic-style adventure and truly satisfying romance that made the novel a "Dove Bar" experience.

  • Overall I thought this book was pretty good, but there are some things that keep it from being better in my opinion. I found a few parts to be kind of boring...

  • There’s no denying that Gabaldon spins a good yarn. She has the bestselling credentials to prove it. But something about Outlander was so unengaging that I’m never going to attempt another book to find out.
