As you may know I own a Kindle, and having preordered The Scottish Prisoner was able to read it the day it was released, November 29th 2011. My intention was to take my time with it, read only perhaps a chapter every couple of days, really draw it out. This would be, after all, the last time I could savor brand new things about Jamie, get inside his head *cough* kilt until the release of Written in My Own Heart’s Blood, due out in 2013. (That being said I really do appreciate Herself’s Daily Lines from MOBY- they keep me going!) Well, that opening scene; I mean just the thought of him desperately aching with longing/loneliness for Claire- it was all downhill after that. I devoured it, finished it in like 2 days. I had to keep reading until I got my next Jamie fix!
Yes, I was happy to learn more about Willie. And yes, I do so love Lord John and enjoyed his scenes too. But let’s be honest, what I love most about The Scottish Prisoner is that Jamie is in it, a lot, and that’s good enough for me. I got my Jamie fix!
