Outlander (Outlander, #1)

Outlander by Diana Gabaldon
Publisher: Dell Publishing Company
Publication Date: July 26, 2005

The year is 1945. Claire Randall, a former combat nurse, is back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon--when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient stone circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach--an "outlander"--in a Scotland torn by war and raiding Highland clans in the year of Our Lord...1743.

Hurled back in time by forces she cannot understand, Claire is catapulted into intrigues and dangers that may threaten her life...and shatter her heart. For here she meets James Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior, and becomes a woman torn between fidelity and desire...and between two vastly different men in two irreconcilable lives.

Quotes from ebook pages: 10

This absurd thought coincided unfortunately with my dawning realization that the young man was not completely exhausted after all. In fact, it was becoming embarrassingly obvious to both of us. I coughed and cleared my throat, wiping my eyes with my sleeve as I slid off his lap.

"Ye need not be scairt of me," he said softly. "Nor of anyone here, so long as I'm with ye." He let go and turned to the fire.  

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Teaser Tuesdays post, or share your ‘teasers’ in a comment here if you don’t have a blog Thanks! 


  1. Nice quotes....here are mine..

    "Then I have three friends, counting the cabdriver I met tonight. Or four, if I can count you too?"
    Grace shook her head. "Thanks for the offer, but I don't think so."

    "Pickle whats?"
    "Picklebacks. It's a shot of whiskey followed by a shot of pickle juice. They're super yummy."

    Quotes taken from Katwalk by Maria Murnane.. Not sure if I was meant to pick two quotes from the same page or a different page?

  2. Oops. A bit embarrassing. LOL Fun teaser.
