Ian and Jamie are virgins, in France as mercenaries. This is before the Outlander begins and after Jamie escaped the terrible flogging by Randall and the death of Jamie's father. There's no romance but some pretty graphic scenes with whores and some other sexual scenes that have nothing ot do with romance.

I am a huge fan of the outlander series, this novel is like a prequel of the story of Jamie and Claire, the friendship of Iain and Jamie.
Lovely novel, wonderfully written by Diana Gabaldon.
This is the kind of books, when one begans to read it and can`t stop till the end. ( )

0.5 in the Outlander series. October, 1740 - Bordeaux, France. Murtagh has just deposited Jamie with his best friend Ian and told him to stay out of Scotland. Ian is with a band of mercenaries and Jamie joins them. Jamie is still recovering from his flogging at Randall's hands and blaming himself for his father's death from a heart attack. A nice little read, but very disappointed when the end was reached half way through the book which was padded out with some chapters from the first Outlander book. I thought we might get the story of Ian losing his leg so expectations not fulfilled. ( )

A young Jamie Fraser learns what it really means to become a man in this Outlander prequel novella. 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.
