To Say a little word…

Here’s Jamie and Claire:

“What is it, Sassenach?” he asked, laying a hand on my arm.

“Oh, nothing,” I said with a sigh. “Only thinking that I rather doubt anyone will ever describe me as ‘graceful as the wind’.”

“Ah.” His head was half-turned, the long, straight nose and firm chin lighted from behind by the glow of the nearest lantern. I could see the half-smile on his lips as he turned back toward me.

“Well, I’ll ye, Sassenach, ‘graceful’ is possibly not the first word that springs to mind at thought of you.” He slipped an arm behind me, one hand large and warm around my silk-clad shoulder.

“But I talk to you as I talk to my own soul,” he said, turning me to face him. He reached up and cupped my cheek, fingers light on the temple.

“And, Sassenach,” he whispered, “your face is my heart.”

And this is why all men are ruined for me. Jamie is one smooth S.O.B.

    1. IT’S SO GOOOOOOOD!!!!! I’m completely in love with it.
      Definitely read it, it took me about a week to read the first one because I was like HOLY MOTHER OF GOD THIS IS AN EXCELLENT BOOK!!! *nerdgasm*

      1. The Bookery has a bunch of them, I bought a bunch for Lisa and had every intention of borrowing them. I’m very much immersed in Game of Thrones right now but they’re totally on my list!

      2. Yeah, definitely finish Game of Thrones first! haha, I stopped reading it when I finished the third one and I tried reading the fourth and I’m like what on earth is going on! When did all of these people die?!
        And thank you!

      3. Lol yeah I wasn’t going to read them because there’s still two more books to be written but when I finished watching season 3 I had to know what happened next! I just started book 3 it’s so absorbing!

      4. Two more!? I thought there was only one!!! What is this guy doing to us!!!
        I had to stop reading the fourth so I could watch the third season and figure out what the hell is going on before i continue haha

      5. Yeah apparently there will be seven in total :$ I’m afraid to read to the end of the fifth in case it’s a really bad cliffhanger but I just can’t stop lol
