I truly enjoyed listening to this book!! It was fun as is any story with Morna involved. But it also contained a gritty element as Kate tried to deal with the baggage of her past and her accident. Maddock sees more than her angry demeanor. And determined he is the man to get the job done. And that job is to win her heart.

Laurel's life bears no resemblance to the love stories she writes. While handsome heroes are easy to imagine, they're much more difficult to find. 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.

What did I enjoy the most about this book? Everything! I got to tell you that Laurel's dating woes reminded me of my own that I had plenty of laugh out moments... I also enjoyed the mysticism of the 8 Druids. That is actually one of my interests(mystics and stuff that is) With Raudrich coming into Laurel's life. And with Marcus learning the full extent of his mission and of course, Morna who is always up to her old tricks. This made for an entertaining and special read for me. I enjoyed Love Beyond Words immensely!

Charming and wonderful tale of love and magic. Morna is always up to matchmaking. And this time is no different. I absolutely loved Kenna's and Malcolm's story. As wend their way towards each other, you get to catch up with some of the characters from Morna's Legacy. As always, I am enchanted by Bethany Claire's books.

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 must say how much I enjoyed Love Beyond Reach. This time around we learn about Morna's story, It was a fascinating ride through time from learning how she and Jerry met and came together. Morna has always been such a meddlesome lass with her witchery and matchmaking. So it was definitely fun to see Morna matched with her one true love. Of course, the usual cast of characters are sprinkled throughout the book. It's like reuniting with old friends every time I listen to an Morna's Legacy tale. It seems the best was saved for last with this one. Loved it!!

A little bit of Christmas magic and Christmas miracles come true. This is the gamut of emotions I felt while listening to A Mcmillan Christmas. It was a fun trip back into the past and the present and the past and the present again...lol Kamden and Harper worked through their issues and got their second chance. It was the best Christmas ever for them. Magic was definitely in the air at McMillan castle. I love the Morna's legacy series because they transport me back in time. And I feel as if I'm one with the story. Of course, it's always awesome to hear from the other characters from previous books. You get to reconnect with old friends. Everyone is one big happy family here...you gotta love these guys... I sure do! The best time travel series ever with each story being exciting and new.

Maybe then her life will finally start. When she receives a job offer to serve as chef at a castle resort in Scotland, she gets her wish and happily leaves the restaurant to begin a new chapter in her life.

I feel this has been the best yet in this series. Why? I really dug Sydney, she was fierce as a firecracker. She brought a breath of fresh air to the story. This particular book seemed as if time flew by while listening to it. It had it's moments of laughter and of course romance. I love how the author keeps the storyline fresh while adding characters along with the old ones. It's also Callum turn to find love while trying to solve the mystery of his burning castle. Even the fighting/action scenes towards were described so well,I felt like I was watching it on tv. And as usual, it was awesome to hear from the characters from previous books. Cooper and his mama,Bri, Morna and grumpy old Jerry as well as others. This has been such a fun and exciting time travel series.

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.

This was story was of Gillian and Orick. Gillian, who constantly dreamt of a handsome Scotsman. Orick, a man who was literally trying to find himself. The chemistry between these two when they finally come together is off the charts. I knew a hooy ending would bev in store for them despite the issues they faced. It was good to see some of the characters from the previous books such as Callum, the ever precocious Cooper, Morna. These books never get stale for me. Each one is an exciting ride. And as a reader, I enjoy riding into the past and back into the present with the characters.

It seems Morna is back to her old tricks again. This time, her unsuspecting victim is Jane, who by the way is quite skeptical about time travel. She meets Adwen and course sparks fly. I knew they were meant to be together,even if they rubbed each other the wrong way at first.

Cooper of course, is always a scene stealer. Loved, loved this book!

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 can never get enough of the Morna's Legacy series. I thoroughly enjoyed this novella just as much as the other books in this series. Cooper is quite the rascal, isn't he? He made the book really fun for me. Of course, It was wonderful seeing Jeffrey and Kathleen fall in love.

After listening to the previous books in this series, I was quite eager to begin another journey into Scotland. I adored the very precocious Cooper. And Grace and Eoghanan were quite a pair. And of course, there is always Morna in the background doing her thing. I also liked that Grace hailed from New York, like myself..lol Highly entertaining and a very enjoyable series. Looking forward to the next book.
