Former minor league baseball player and now Hollywood’s biggest moneymaker, actor Michael Casey likes to immerse himself in a role before the cameras start rolling.  But he never expects to find himself suddenly transported to the real Regency England, where he is mistaken for the Earl of Ambersley, the true-life hero of the Napoleonic wars he’s to portray in the about to be filmed movie. 


The real Earl of Ambersley is due to arrive in less than two weeks, there’s a murderous spy on the loose, the real Earl’s fiancée is in mortal danger, the script Casey knows cold is apparently full of historical holes, and the secret passage that was his entry to this crazy world isn’t working anymore.


Apparently Casey has to find a way to be a real life hero before it’s too late, and before he can get back to his own time.


How’s that for immersing oneself in a role — the Role of a Lifetime!

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

Nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide

Praise for Outlander

**PLEASE NOTE: This is the JUST GOOD CLEAN FUN version of INDISCREET by New York Times bestselling romance author Kasey Michaels**

Sophie Winstead is utterly perfect, from the top of her tousled honey-brown ringlets to the tips of her dainty pink toes.  Indeed, any man in London Society would want her.  The problem for Sophie lay in what they wanted her from her.  For Sophie is the orphaned daughter of one Constance Winstead, the Widow Winstead, mistress of many men during her abbreviated lifetime.  Woo her, win her, yes.  Marry her?  Don’t be ridiculous!


When the Duke of Selbourne and his lovely Connie met an extremely public and indiscreet end at a country party, Sophie was crushed by her double loss, for she had grown to love “Uncle Cesse” very much.  She cried for days before her only companion (a French courtesan turned lady’s maid), slowly and carefully brought her back to her usual sunny, perfect self.


The Duke’s son took refuge in anger, railed at the mess his father had left behind, and swore that he would never, never ever, follow in his father’s irresponsible footsteps.  For three long years Bramwell Seaton, the new Duke, toed every line, broke no rules; why, he’d even become engaged to the perfect, staid, beauty who would make him a suitable wife.  He might not have been precisely a happy man, but he had managed to rub the tarnish from the family escutcheon.


You know what’s coming, right?  


Bramwell’s father had left behind a mess he could not ignore, and he suddenly found himself reluctantly chaperoning Sophie for the Spring Season. Sophie—accompanied by her maid, her parrot (a bird with the memory of an elephant), and a larcenous monkey —dazzled everyone in the Duke’s household, from his aunt to the lowliest scullery maid. Why, she even gained the approval of Bramwell’s fiancée, who offered to help steer Sophie in avoiding the many pitfalls of polite Society.


You know who didn’t have any intention of succumbing to Sophie’s charms.


Sophie being who she so naturally was, and Bram being a recent reinvention of the bright, charming man he’d been before his father’s “fall from grace,” it isn’t a question of if the Duke will realize where his true happiness lies, but only one of when.


This is the “Just for the fun of it” version of Indiscreet (no explicit sex), and I’m delighted to be able to offer it to all audiences, wishing them joy and giggles as they come along for the journey to romance with Sophie and Bram!
