Description :  <b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • For writers looking to make sure their next physical interlude on the page inspires readers to share the moment rather than to laugh at it, bestselling author Diana Gabaldon divulges the writing secrets behind the sex scenes in her wildly popular Outlander<i> </i>novels.</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> <i>“Ask me to your bed,” he said. “I shall come to ye.”</i><br /> &#xa0;<br /> In this revealing compendium, acclaimed writer Diana Gabaldon shares her invaluable lessons for creating an immersive reading experience, from evoking a mood to using the power of emotions to communicate physical intimacy.

Gabaldon also notes that sex can be conveyed instead of described. With such tips as “The Rule of Three” for involving the senses, handy lists of naughty euphemisms (with instructions for use), and Gabaldon’s own examples from the Outlander novels, <i>“I Give You My Body . . .”</i> is a master class in writing to draw readers in and keep them riveted to the page.

At this moment, Jamie Fraser returns from a presumed watery grave to discover that his best friend has married his wife, his illegitimate son has discovered (to his horror) who his father really is, and his beloved nephew, Ian, wants to marry a Quaker. Meanwhile, Jamie’s wife, Claire, and his sister, Jenny, are busy picking up the pieces.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> The Frasers can only be thankful that their daughter Brianna and her family are safe in twentieth-century Scotland. Or not. In fact, Brianna is&#xa0; searching for her own son, who was kidnapped by a man determined to learn her family’s secrets. Her husband, Roger, has ventured into the past in search of the missing boy . . . never suspecting that the object of his quest has not left the present. Now, with Roger out of the way, the kidnapper can focus on his true target: Brianna herself.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <i>Written in My Own Heart’s Blood</i> is the brilliant next chapter in a masterpiece of the imagination unlike any other.<br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

Though his beloved godfather, Murtagh, promised Jamie’s late parents he’d watch over their brash son, making good on that vow will be no easy task. There’s already a fat bounty on the young exile’s head, courtesy of Captain Black Jack Randall, the sadistic British officer who’s crossed paths—and swords—with Jamie in the past. And in the court of the mighty MacKenzie clan, Jamie is a pawn in the power struggle between his uncles: aging chieftain Colum, who demands his nephew’s loyalty—or his life—and Dougal, war chieftain of Clan MacKenzie, who’d sooner see Jamie put to the sword than anointed Colum’s heir.<br /><br />And then there is Claire Randall—mysterious, beautiful, and strong-willed, who appears in Jamie’s life to stir his &#xa0;compassion . . . and arouse his desire.&#xa0;<br />&#xa0;<br />But even as Jamie’s heart draws him to Claire, Murtagh is certain she’s been sent by the Old Ones, and Captain Randall accuses her of being a spy. Claire clearly has something to hide, though Jamie can’t believe she could pose him any danger. Still, he knows she is torn between two choices—a life with him, and whatever it is that draws her thoughts so often elsewhere.&#xa0;<br />&#xa0;&#xa0;&#xa0; <br />Step into the captivating, passionate, and suspenseful world of <b>The Exile</b>, and experience the storytelling magic of Diana Gabaldon as never before.<br />&#xa0;

Description :  Recién acabada la Segunda Guerra Mundial, una joven pareja se reúne por fin para pasar sus vacaciones en Escocia. Una tarde, cuando pasea sola por la pradera, Claire se acerca a un círculo de piedras antiquísimas y cae de pronto en un extraño trance. Al volver en sí se encuentra con un panorama desconcertante: el mundo moderno ha desaparecido, ahora la rodea la Escocia de 1734, con sus clanes beligerantes y supersticiosos, hombres y mujeres rudos, a veces violentos, pero con una capacidad de vivir y de amar como Claire jamás había experimentado en su anterior vida. Acosada por los recuerdos, Claire tendrá que elegir entre la seguridad del futuro que dejó atrás y la apasionante incertidumbre del pasado que ahora habita.<br /><br />En esta primera parte de la saga de Claire Randall –que continúa con <i>Atrapada en el tiempo</i>, <i>Viajera</i> y <i>Tambores de otoño</i>–, Diana Gabaldon ha escrito una historia de amor diferente, en la que los encuentros fortuitos y el juego equívoco del tiempo se conjugan en un intrigante final.

Release Date :  2012-07-05
Description :  Nuovo Mondo, 1771: le relazioni fra l&#39;Inghilterra e le colonie americane sono sempre più tese e la guerra è imminente. Claire e Jamie hanno avuto in concessione dal Governatore della Corona Fraser&#39;s Ridge, un ampio latifondo, dove vivono insieme alla figlia Brianna, al suo compagno Roger e al loro figlioletto Jemmy. E benché i rapporti dello scozzese Jamie con i «vicini» inglesi non siano mai stati idilliaci, per non perdere la concessione Jamie è costretto ad accettare la nomina a Colonnello con il compito di arruolare un reggimento per soffocare le insurrezioni dei cosiddetti Regolatori, gruppi d&#39;uomini armati che reagiscono con la violenza ai soprusi che l&#39;Inghilterra infligge ai sudditi oltreoceano. In questo turbolento contesto s&#39;inseriscono le vicende private dei nostri eroi: dal ritorno del perfido Stephen Bonnett, lo stupratore di Brianna e forse padre di Jemmy, al matrimonio fra la zia di Jamie, Jocasta e Duncan Innes; dall&#39;aggressione subita da Jocasta da parte di due malviventi che cercano l&#39;oro francese inviato da Luigi XVI a Charles Stuart e mai arrivato a destinazione, all&#39;assassinio, avvenuto in circostanze misteriose, della domestica nera dei Fraser. James dovrà fronteggiare questi e altri pericoli per difendere i suoi averi, la sua vita, quella dei suoi cari e, soprattutto, l&#39;amore di Claire, che subisce il corteggiamento insistente del dandy Philip Wylie e che, come sempre, è combattuta fra la sua vita in un passato al quale ormai sa di appartenere, e la sua conoscenza del futuro. Un futuro, che per quel che riguarda la sorte dei soldati fedeli alla corona britannica, non promette nulla di buono?

50 Il ritorno

Author : Diana Gabaldon
Genre :  Romance  Books  Fiction & Literature 
Price :  $7.99
Release Date :  2012-07-05
Description :  Nell’Amuleto d’ambra Claire Randall, viaggiatrice nel tempo e nello spazio, aveva incominciato a spiegare una difficile verità alla figlia Brianna. Negli anni in cui era ufficialmente data per dispersa, fra il 1945 e il 1946, era in realtà precipitata, attraverso il magico cerchio di pietre di Craigh na Dun, nella Scozia del Settecento, dove si era innamorata follemente del nobile giacobita James Fraser e per evitare che venisse ucciso dagli inglesi nella battaglia di Culloden, era addirittura andata con James alla corte di Versailles, che tradizionalmente appoggiava la causa scozzese. Tuttavia, James e Claire erano dovuti ritornare precipitosamente a Lallybroch, nelle Highlands, con un nulla di fatto: da Parigi il nipote di Giacomo Stuart, Bonnie Prince Charles, era determinato a organizzare la rivolta dei clan, che Claire ben sapeva si sarebbe conclusa in una carneficina per gli scozzesi. Braccati dagli inglesi che ritenevano James Fraser uno dei principali sobillatori e guardati con crescente sospetto dagli scozzesi, a causa del loro ovvio scetticismo circa l’esito dello scontro finale con gli inglesi, James e Claire consumano la loro ardente e avventurosa storia d’amore, consapevoli che Claire si sarebbe ben presto trovata davanti a una scelta difficile: seguire fino in fondo il suo uomo perdendosi definitivamente nel passato o tornare a un presente che ormai non le appartiene più, con la sola speranza di portare con sé una traccia.
