I Married Jamie
Yes, those of you who know Major Man's real name will say... "uhh, no you didn't".. but just hold on.

A few years ago I read the most magnificent fiction book series ever. Diana Gabaldon's Outlander series. Five books of wonderful storytelling, cliffhanging action and - best of all - romance with the Man of Men.

Jaime.

I absolutely lusted after this fictional character. He was just SO PERFECT with his unemotional bravery and quietly powerful love... oh my I CRIED ACTUAL tears around book two and my heart ACTUALLY FLUTTERED in a way that made me want to sip wine and lay in bed with a smile on my face MANY TIMES throughout the series.

(The final book is coming out this month and I have to put all other books on hold until I am finished it!)

But the thing is, the reason I got so emotional was that he reminded me of Major Man. Never mind that at this time I had not seen him in eight years or so and I was sure I'd never see him again - afterall we lived in two different countries!

Still, they were the same in my mind, Jamie brought so many memories back of the first time I met Major Man that I was left weak, pitiful and sad at the state of life I was in. I was sure that the true love of my life was far in my past and all I had left was this fictional character.

But you know what? Because of that book I tried again. Because that book re-ignited the flickering flame that had almost gone out, I tried again.

And on September 10th I married my Jamie.

I await with baited breath for the next Jamie and Claire story. I, too, am a huge fan and love everything about both of them and their story.

Congrats again on finding your Jamie!

What a cute story!

By the way, A Breath Of Snow And Ashes will not be the final book. Nobody knows how this wrong information could spread so fast but I read an interview with Diana and Barbara Schnell and they said there will be one or even two more books! How cool is that?
