Eleanor Ackard always knows the right thing to do to help her patients when it comes to their relationships, but when an almost-vacation with her immature boyfriend makes it clear that she needs to take her own advice, she rethinks her plans and sets off on a solo vacation to Scotland. But when a boat tour ends up with her stranded inside a haunted castle, Eleanor is faced with the opportunity to change history. Thrilled to escape her mundane routine for just a little while, she jumps at the chance, never expecting for a moment that it’s her heart that is as likely to change as history.

This is a story of Morna working her magic again. This time it is Eleanor going back in time to save Monroe and his castle. All of the Morna stories are enjoyable and interesting. My only complaint would be that I needed more of Eleanor and Monroe. It was over too soon for me. I loved this novella and can’t wait to hear who is next for Morna.

I was hoping to hear Kate’s story as soon as she was introduced in the last book. Finally Kate gets her chance at love in Love Beyond Wanting. Of course her story can’t be easy going. Her past struggles provide her with the strength and courage to face the new struggles. I found myself using every free minute to listen to the book. Now I can’t wait for the next book.

Years of bad dates with creepy men have left her feeling cynical toward all things related to love. When she and her best friend find themselves caught up in Morna's meddling magic and are transported to 17th-century Scotland, Laurel meets a man who threatens to change her attitude toward matters of the heart.

I always look forward to Bethany’s new books. I have enjoyed each of Morna’s matches in the previous stories but this book is a bit different than the others in the series. There is a new storyline twist that was surprising and entertaining. You definitely won’t be disappointed. The book is great but the audible version is even better.

I love all of the books in this series. The characters are interesting and likeable. I always look forward to the next installment to see what Morna comes up with next. These Christmas novellas are fun quick reads that are perfect for the holiday season. I love a good time travel book but this one sends a beloved member of the family from the past to the present. I love the switch from past to present. I enjoyed reading the book but the audible version brings the story to life. Five Stars!!!

All Morna Conall wants is freedom - freedom to practice and learn about the magic inside her. Perhaps then her world wouldn't feel so small. When she finds the spell books and journals of an old mentor, Morna believes she's found the key to her happiness, but when she crosses paths with an injured man in need of help, her plans are derailed. As she spends more time with the strange but alluring man, her dreams change. Maybe magic isn't the only thing capable of expanding her world.

I have been waiting to hear Morna's story and finally we have it. I loved Morna and Jerry's relationship in the past books and I always wondered what their story was. It is obvious that Bethany Claire saved the best for last. The narrator Lily Collingwood brings the characters to life through the audio version. I already read the book but the audiobook is amazing.

These books are great to listen to while taking a walk. I found myself taking longer walks because I didn't want to stop listening.

Why can't I get stuck in a Scottish castle during a snow storm? I guess I will have to live vicariously through Harper. This is a story of two modern people finding love again in the past. It's another great Morna hookup. I read this book on the day it was released. It's a quick and fun novella with all of our favorite characters from past books. I was given the opportunity to listen and review the audio book version. The book is great but the audio book makes the story come to life. It's great for a weekend road trip. You definitely won't be disappointed.

Gillian Wright dreams of the same man every night - his kind eyes and gentle smile as familiar to her now as her own reflection. She looks forward to her nights spent with him, but when she starts to hear his voice in the winds around Cagair Castle, she can't help but wonder if he's more than a figment of her imagination.

I love all of Morna's Legacy books. Bethany Claire is an incredible writer that allows you to see the book in living color as you read or listen to it. When I listen to this book, I can actually feel as if I am standing there watching it happen in front of me.

This is a great story of Gillian and Orick. I have loved Orick since first reading about him in the earlier books. I'm glad he is finally getting his story told. I love how all if the books continue the stories of the characters in past books.

For Jeffrey Oakes, life in the seventeenth century hasn't been the thrilling change of pace he hoped it would be. The lack of power tools, better hygiene, and cold beer has him yearning for the luxuries of his modern-day life. It might all be bearable if he had someone to maneuver the cultural differences and minimal conveniences with-someone with whom he could make a life. But among the Scottish countryside, with women so different from himself, he knows his chances of finding such a woman are small.

I was hoping Jeffrey would find love in this series. I was excited to see that Bethany's next book was for Jeffrey. I love Cooper and Jeffrey's relationship. I enjoyed all of the books in this series but this one is at the top of my list of favorites. The audio version makes it so much more entertaining and alive. The narrator does an incredible job with each personality.
