Drums of Autumn (TV Tie-In) by Diana Gabaldon Summary

The fourth installation of Gabaldon's Outlander series, Drums of Autumn returns repackaged with official tie-in art from the blockbuster W Network television series Outlander, which will air its fourth season beginning in Fall 2018. In this breathtaking novel, rich in history and adventure, Diana Gabaldon continues the story of Claire Randall and Jamie Fraser that started with the now-classic novel Outlander and continued in Dragonfly in Amber and Voyager, and became the basis for the hit original TV series.

But Claire had left someone behind in the twentieth century. Their daughter, Brianna. . . . Now Brianna has made a disturbing discovery that sends her to the circle of stones. In search of her mother and the father she has never met, she is risking her own future to try to change history . . . and to save their lives.

Le prisonnier écossais by Diana GABALDON Summary

Une nouvelle aventure captivante du célèbre lord John Grey. Lake District, Angleterre, 1760. L'Écossais Jamie Fraser vivrait presque une existence paisible, depuis sa libération conditionnelle, si le souvenir de Claire, sa femme disparue, ne venait le hanter chaque nuit... et si un ancien camarade de rébellion, Quinn, ne s'était mis en tête de le rallier encore une fois à sa cause contre les Anglais. Mais Jamie s'est juré de ne plus jamais se mêler de politique. Londres, la même année. L'Anglais Lord John Grey, aristocrate, soldat et espion, se retrouve en possession de documents révélant une affaire de corruption au sein de l'armée britannique. Pire, une lettre, écrite en gaélique, laisse entrevoir une menace bien plus effrayante : une nouvelle insurrection. Grey n'a pas d'autre choix que de convoquer Jamie, malgré leurs différends passés, pour qu'il lui traduise la missive. Bientôt, les deux hommes arpentent les périlleuses routes d'Irlande sur les pas d'un officier qui serait la clé d'un vaste complot...

Virgins: An Outlander Novella by Diana Gabaldon Summary

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • A young Jamie Fraser learns what it really means to become a man in this Outlander prequel novella. Featuring all the trademark suspense, adventure, and history of Diana Gabaldon’s #1 bestselling novels and the Starz original series, Virgins is now available for the first time as a standalone ebook. Mourning the death of his father and gravely injured at the hands of the English, Jamie Fraser finds himself running with a band of mercenaries in the French countryside, where he reconnects with his old friend Ian Murray. Both are nursing wounds; both have good reason to stay out of Scotland; and both are still virgins, despite several opportunities to remedy that deplorable situation with ladies of easy virtue. But Jamie’s love life becomes infinitely more complicated—and dangerous—when fate brings the young men into the service of Dr. Hasdi, a Jewish gentleman who hires them to escort two priceless treasures to Paris. One is an old Torah; the other is the doctor’s beautiful granddaughter, Rebekah, destined for an arranged marriage. Both Jamie and Ian are instantly drawn to the bride-to-be—but they might be more cautious if they had any idea who they’re truly dealing with.

Délicieux frissons (Harlequin Audace) by Jacquie D'Alessandro Summary

Délicieux frissons, Jacquie D'Alessandro Mallory fixa l'appareil photo que tenait Adam, puis elle roula lentement sur le côté et se mit à genoux. La soie noire du caraco glissa, caresse délicieuse sur sa peau enflammée, et la douce pression du porte-jarretelles à sa taille la fit frissonner. Jamais elle n'aurait imaginé qu'une séance de pose puisse être aussi sensuelle, ni qu'elle puisse faire naître dans son esprit des envies si coquines. Mais à vrai dire, en venant au studio, elle ignorait qu'Adam Clayton serait le photographe, et cela changeait tout : comment aurait-elle pu rester de marbre en posant devant cet homme qui avait embrasé son corps, quelques années plus tôt, et vers lequel elle se sentait toujours poussée par un désir fou ? Pourtant, elle ne devait pas se faire d'illusions. Même si elle voyait bien dans son regard qu'il la désirait plus que jamais, et que ses mains mouraient d'envie de remplacer ses yeux sur sa peau brûlante, il fallait qu'elle garde la tête froide. Car, entre eux, l'étincelle ne pouvait durer que le temps d'une séance de photos...

A Jamaican plantation burns deep into the night. A handful of heroic Highlanders fight their way straight up a vertical cliff to stand on the Plains of Abraham in a fiery dawn. And a torch burns green, through the eerie surrounds of a Parisian cemetery, down into the mysteries of the earth. Four Outlander tales, each set in a different time and place, and yet each one a fiery thread in the warp and weft of the epic story that began in Scotland in 1945, when Claire Randall first touched a boulder in an ancient stone circle and was hurled back in time...
