Publisher's Summary

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 daughter, 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.

Sweet story but

The reader makes Jaime sound like a grunting Neanderthal. The story was ok, but lacking something. Perhaps it was just the reader. He really didn't seem to capture Jaime well at all.

Not Davina Porter

I've listened to all Diana's novels and it was strange to hear another voice for Jaime....the pace was slower & no where near the humor in others...only reason I liked was because I know characters so well...nice to hear more about Ian though

A good short for Gabaldon fans

I liked the narrator's Scots accent, which fitted the characters well. If you love Diana Gabaldon's other books, this will not disappoint, but if you haven't read them, this may be confusing to some.

Story telling is so important

Why didn't Davina Porter tell the story?
After getting so used to her and the voices for each character I found this hard to follow.
Didn't enjoy this 😔

Fabulous narration, wish it was longer!

Would you listen to Virgins again? Why?

Have already listened to it twice and will no doubt listen to it again before too long. Easy to listen to with wonderful narration (considering it's not the always spectacular Davina Porter).

Who was your favorite character and why?

Well, of course Jamie BUT it was a real treat to get to know Ian a little more, especially as they are both out of their natural environs.

Which character – as performed by Allan Scott-Douglas – was your favourite?

I loved him doing Ian. As daft as it sounds, Jamie is, and always will be Davina Porter in book form and Sam Heughan on screen.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me laugh plenty. Lots of fabulous banter between the two besties.

Any additional comments?

Am so used to all of (well, most of) Diana's books being tomes (which I relish), that I was left wanting. I guess I, like many others, just can't get enough of James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser (et al).

Great Story

Would you try another book written by Diana Gabaldon or narrated by Allan Scott-Douglas?

I always would by books by Diana Gabaldon. I will not buy a book narrated by Allan Scott. I really hated the voice he used for Jamie. To such a degree I actually had to finish the book by reading it. Spoilt the whole experience. Though I did enjoy the story.

Would you be willing to try another one of Allan Scott-Douglas’s performances?

No
