She is drawn to this quiet and mysterious man.

And it doesn’t take long before she is fully immersed in his family, including caring for three small kids.

This is an exciting take on both these TV shows.

And the writer really did a great job with it, as you can tell from the 122,000 hits this story has already received.

3. Downhill

In this story, Claire just started at the Edinburgh Medical School.

There, she finds out she is pregnant after a wild one-night stand during the holidays.

In a twist of fate, she meets Jamie Fraser, a man who is more than willing to love her and her unborn child.

So now Claire only has to figure out what she wants.

The story contains 51 short chapters that all read quite easily.

The story is a proper slow burn and worth every chapter’s wait.

4. Modern Glasgow AU

The prompt for this story is a scene where Jamie becomes blind with jealousy.

Jamie and Claire are in attendance at a French court ball.

There Jamie notices a man who keeps staring at Claire.

And he does not seem to mind that she is married.

Jamie can’t control his jealousy and drags Claire from the dancefloor outside.

This story is part 16 in the “Gotham writes for Imagine Claire & Jamie” series.

So make sure to check out the other parts if you enjoyed this.

5. Mint & Thistles

This is another story that takes place in modern times.

Claire finds a new job in Scotland at a Landscaping business.

There she falls in love with her new boss James.

But James is not only her boss; he is married too.

So now Claire has no idea what to do with herself.

She does not want to lose her dream job, but working with someone you love but can’t have is hard.

The story is 33 chapters long and a real slow burn.

It’s ideal for people looking for a more modern retelling of Outlander.

6. This Is Us

This is another modern-day story with the characters from Outlander.

Claire and her now ex-husband use a fertility center to go through IVF.

She gets pregnant, but as it turns out, the sperm got mixed up, and the baby isn’t his.

The real father is Jamie Fraser, and Claire reaches out to him to let him know.

Neither of them expects it, but they actually fall for each other.

Even though the circumstances are strange, they end up as a family.

This is a very romantic story with some lovely writing.

7. Dr. B. II: New Frontier

This is the second part of the Dr. B series.

So you probably want to read the first part before starting this one.

And Claire and Jamie face things that will change their lives forever.

9. Loving Jamie

Claire is sent to live with her uncle when a man attacks her.

She is adamant that the man didn’t touch her, but people are sure she was ruined.

She is forced to marry Jamie, a mute crofter, to save her reputation.

Jamie falls madly in love with her the moment he sees her.

But Claire just wants a man who is good to her and has no expectations of love.

And she is up for a surprise when she gets to know him even better.

This is a slow-burn and very romantic story with all the feels you want from a romance.

10. You’ll Be in Mo Cridhe

This story is a sort of crossover between Outlander and Tarzan.

Claire and her uncle visit the continent of Africa to see gorillas in their natural habitat.

Jamie was already grown when a tragedy at sea caused him to live in the jungles of Africa.
