Don't Miss This Happy Ending For The Carefree Mother That Stole Your Heart in Love Beyond Time and Love Beyond Reason by USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Bethany Claire

>NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Although this can be read as a standalone novella, it could more accurately be described as Book 2.5 of Morna's Legacy Series. It is highly recommended that you start your reading with Book 1 in the series, "Love Beyond Time," followed by "Love Beyond Reason." The characters in this story and the events that led them to the beginning of this novella have occurred in the previous books in this series.

It's Yuletide at Conall Castle.

Christmas is quickly approaching, and Adelle is determined to make this Christmas the best one Conall Castle has ever seen, but loneliness haunts her. Love for her daughter sent her into the past, but she'd not expected the isolation she would feel. A former socialite and serial dater, she finds that her current age seems much older in the seventeenth century than it did in the twenty-first. She resigns herself to the fact that she will remain single for the rest of her days. At least until an unexpected visitor arrives at the castle...

Hew Moray has spent the last twenty years all alone, only leaving his isolated home once a year to pay homage to the wife he lost long ago. When a winter storm causes him to seek shelter at the castle where his sister lives, he meets the first lass since his beloved Mae to make his heart flutter in his chest once again. Will he be able to release himself from his past grief to allow another love to enter his life? If he does, will his love be returned?

Reviewed by Bil Howard for Readers' Favorite Perhaps it all gets better the second time around, regardless of which century it happens. A Conall Christmas by Bethany Claire is not only a celebration of Christmas and new birth, but a celebration of new and unexpected love that finds two willing participants who had given up on the hope of every finding it again. When Adelle’s daughter finds love in the seventeenth century in a Scottish castle and soon also the prospect of a child, Adelle rushes to her side. As they prepare for the celebration of Christmas and the coming of her grandchild, Adelle has assumed that she would spend the rest of her days alone. Hew Moray had spent twenty years alone and isolated from the rest of the world after his beloved wife died. He had never expected to speak to another human again, outside of a few brief words with his sister who was the cook and mistress of the house at Conall Castle. When he arrived at the Castle and soon found himself breathless at the sight of Adelle, his shyness and isolation began to melt, in spite of the snow which had stranded him at the castle while making his way to the grave of his beloved Mae. What seemed so unlikely for two souls, shadowed with age, might well give both of them new life. Bethany Claire has written a wonderful Christmas story that not only brings celebration and hope, but restoration of two people who had believed that the best of their days had passed. The subtle changes of the characters in such a peaceful and easy way make this a story to be treasured. Transcending space and time, love can come from places that we would never expect and when it arrives, we wrap our arms about it and let it take us over. Gentle, beautiful and delightful, A Conall Christmas is a celebration of hope and restoration that will warm the heart of anyone who reads it.

Bethany Claire writes similar to Diana Gabalden without going into as much depth and detail. I thoroughly enjoyed each book in this series and am axiously awaiting Ms. Claire's next book or series...I hope this will be soon!! c18hawk.

I loved this book! This is such a sweet love story between two people who had basically given up on love. The fact that this story's main characters were a little more mature made it a refreshing break from most mainstream romances today. You should definitely read this book after Love Beyond Reason and before Love Beyond Hope because you learn more about the characters and get even more wrapped up in their world. No matter that it is April and this is named "A Conall Christmas." The story takes place at Christmas but the love story could have happened any time. Christmas is just a backdrop. This whole series is great! I highly recommend it.

Dull, boring, could't finish. No real sparks between the love interests. The story switched frequently from Adelle narating to Hew narating, this made the story difficult to read and at times confusing as to who was talking.
