fiery cross, once used to summon Highland clans to war, now
beckons readers to take up Gabaldon's 5th installment in the
Outlander series featuring the time-traveling Frasers. Historical
fiction fans who have waited four long years since the publication
of Drums of Autumn will thrill to Gabaldon's trademark detail
and sensuality, both displayed liberally throughout the nearly
1,000 pages of The Fiery Cross. In this pre-Revolutionary War
period, Claire Fraser and her husband, Jamie, have crossed oceans
and centuries to build a life together in the bucolic beauty
of North Carolina. But tensions both ancient and recent threaten
not only Claire and James, but their daughter, Brianna, her
new husband, Roger, and their infant son, Jemmy, as well as
members of their clan. Gabaldon delivers on what she does best:
poignant storylines, empathetic characters, meticulous detail,
and searing passion. Savor every carefully chosen word, readers;
it may be a long time until the next installment!

Highlander's Touch This
book tells a great story. There's time travel, war, & romance.
The story doesn't elaborate on war much at all, just basically
that there is one. But the romance that builds between the charaters
and the way the author describes them is awesome! You will fall
in love with Circenn, and the passion he has for Lisa.

Scottish Bride Coulter
completes her quartet of Regency-set historical romances about
the Sherbrooke family with a refreshing twist. In contrast to
the rakish men featured in the three preceding books, the hero

children who arrives in Scotland after inheriting a castle. With
admirable bravado, he rescues Mary Rose Fordyce from the clutches
of a local man who will do anything, including rape, to get what
Scottish Rose If
I have ever read a novel that should be made into a movie this
is the one. It has everything to make it appealing. You almost
forget you aren't there with them on their exciting journey. Jill

She is just great. Review by D. Robinson.
