Publisher's Summary

Love is the most powerful kind of magic. Baodan McMillan values many things in life: friendship, loyalty, kindness, but certainly not love. After the tragic death of his wife many years ago, he hardened himself to the idea of giving his heart to another. There is only one lass who can thaw his chilly heart, a lass he's never met nor knows of, a lass whose birth won't occur until centuries after his death.

Mitsy Fredrickson is in serious need of a distraction. With the ink still drying on her divorce papers, she flies to Scotland determined to forget about her own problems by helping her best friend re-enter reality. She knows Bri's claims that she is able to travel back in time and is currently living in the year 1647 are a lie but, instead of locating her friend, Mitsy falls prey to the same magic and is quickly forced to believe the impossible.

Modern and sassy, Mitsy finds few in the 17th century who know how to take her fiery personality, but she finds her match in Baodan, laird of McMillan Castle. He is her opposite in every way, yet she feels balanced in his presence. The more time she spends with him, the harder she falls. She suspects he feels the same way, but something is holding him back - a dark secret from his past that even Baodan doesn't fully understand. Mitsy works to uncover what is hidden in the hopes that with resolution, Baodan will be free to love her. But the truth is darker than she expects, and it threatens to destroy them both.

    Story
    "Love conquerors misplaced doubt, anger, and fear of succeeding"

    Baodan comes across Mitsy when she arrives 'from the future' with enough strangely spoken futuristic jargon and a too spirited attitude for a lady of that day and time that Baodan believes that Mitsy may not have all her mental faculties nailed in place. And then there is all the havoc that is taking place in and around Baodan's life, home and extended family that keeps the pace of all the extenuating circumstances revved up to full throttle in a way that makes it seem that there is no hope for a positive outcome for all the troubles. But . . .

    Baodan finally opens his eyes to allowing himself to take a less biased view of his circumstances and a more honest look at his feelings for Mitsy, and they do get to have their HEA!!! Was there any doubt?!

    All the characters from the previous books of the series make appearances so you can catch glimpses of their ongoing lives and all of their own HEA's. This is a charming series of stories in the cozy setting of Scotland that simply warms the heart.

    Story
    "Medieval Time Travel with a side order of Sass!"
    What did you like best about Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance? What did you like least?

    I really like the characters. Bethany Claire (the author) has a way of making you like these characters, even when they are in the most ridiculous of circumstances. What I liked least was that the main female character, Mitsy cussed like a sailor! This was supposedly her way of showing that she was sassy and was a thoroughly modern 21st century female.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The relationship between the brothers was the most interesting. Also seeing what it takes to heal Baodan's heart kept me involved in the story. The least interesting was unfortunately the mystery plot. The villain was so obvious within the first 1//4th of the book that there was no mystery left to that plot line.


    What does Lily Collingwood bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Lily is a very nice narrator. Her voice is pleasant to listen to. BUT, these books are based in Scotland, with a modern American thrown in for flavor. But Lily uses no accents. All her voices sound the same.


    Do you think Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Oh yeah... we have to know what happened to "IO" ...(no spoilers, sorry....)


    Any additional comments?

    All in all, I love this series. It's snack food reading. Light, fun, and after you've had some, you want some more!

    "Loving this series!!"
    If you could sum up Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance in three words, what would they be?

    Love and adventure


    What other book might you compare Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance to and why?

    There is no comparing this series to any other story, it is in a class by itself.


    Which character – as performed by Lily Collingwood – was your favorite?

    I really don't have a favorite. Lily does a wonderful job with all of the characters. I can't wait to sit down and listen to the story when she tells it. Her voice puts me right in the middle of the story.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Love's lasting adventures.

    "The Adventure continues"
    What made the experience of listening to Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance the most enjoyable?

    I had already read the book but the narrator really brings the characters to life and enhances the story itself.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance?

    The 2 min characters had been hurt by love before and it was hard for them to see a happy future. When they find each other it is the perfect match. The two together are stronger that each on separately and when there is a threat to the family they bring everyone together


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The wedding scene - they both deserved the happiness of a second chance


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I like to take my time listening to enjoy the story


    Any additional comments?

    The book by Bethany Claire is beautifully written with great dialog but it is further enhanced by the narration of Lily Collingwood. They make a great team

    "Fantastic"
    If you could sum up Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance in three words, what would they be?

    Engaging, Humorous Spectacular


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Beyond Hope: A Scottish, Time-Traveling Romance?

    When Misty and Baodan met in the pond


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When “Eoghanan stepped forward, his voice low and just as angry as Baodan’s. “Surely, ye doona mean to leave Niall to watch over her? He’ll have her undressed and in his bed before sundown.”
    Baodan shook his head, glancing down at me. I assumed he meant to reassure me that he wouldn’t let that happen. “I doona like it but ye are right. I canna leave her with Niall.”
    “Then give me a chance, brother. ’Tis no the same as it was with her and ye know it.”

    Excerpt From: Claire, Bethany. “Morna’s Legacy Box Set #1


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Mitsy and Baodans are complete opposites, she's sassy and he's quiet and demanding. But as they say opposites attract. But there is something funny going on and Baodan must fine out what it is.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a SPECTACULAR Read! This story will have you LOL and If you love romance this is definitely a fabulous choice for your TBR list. I am hoping there will be a lot more exciting time traveling stories.

    Story
    "Texas goes to Scotland!"

    4 Stars
    Series: Book 3: Morna’s Legacy
    Characters: Baodan McMillan & Mitsy Fredrickson
    Setting: Scotland (Past/Present), Texas (Present)
    Mature Themes: Sex & violence

    Recommendation: The story was one that reminded me why I fell in love with the series in the beginning and the last few chapters gave me goose bumps. If you’ve liked the other Morna series, then keep reading, this one one disappoint.

    Mitsy has one friend, and Bri has gone crazy, talking of living in the past in Scotland and marrying a laird. When Mitsy’s marriage falls apart she decides she’s got nothing better to do than to rescue her poor crazy friend lost in a foreign country. Little did she know Bri was far from crazy and magic was real.

    Mitsy was a different character than I was expecting. When she started as a broken flower, her character adapted, overcame, and ended as a fiery woman who gave two brothers a run for their money. The standard Morna cast of characters was present, though in a more limited capacity, but Bri, her mother, the baby and everyone else was there to cry, celebrate, and scheme together. Baodan was a gruff and harsh man who quickly softened when Mitsy entered his life. Baodan was a weaker main character, closer to Eoin than the other previous two. His “flaw” was weak, and his progression to healed was quick and very linear.

    The love story between the two characters was the most cookie cutter of the stories so far, two divorced/widowed people connecting, both given up on love until they meet the other. The underlying story was wonderful, it harkened back to the first book and had a deep and complicated twist that was rewarding to finish.

    Audiobook Review:
    Lily Collingwood’s many voices are growing in numbers and the diversity in her roles and voices is beginning to blur together. Certain characters still stand out as different, and Mitsy’s had the opportunity to as a Texas accent would have been a great differentiator, sadly, the chance was not taken and Mitsy sounded generic. As usual, the recording quality was great with no hum or distortion and made the entire focus on the story.
