Don't Miss The Latest Tale in Morna's Legacy Series of Scottish Time Travel Romance Novels by USA TODAY Bestselling Author, Bethany Claire

She left her whole world behind to find the one thing that really matters.

Jane Mitchell has many dreams for her life, but living in the seventeenth century was never one of them. Unknowingly transported through time by the meddling witch, Morna, Jane chooses to stay in the past so she can remain in her beloved nephew's life. Castle life doesn't really suit her, and Jane quickly finds that her love for her family isn't enough to fill her hungry soul. Eager for purpose, she takes work at the village inn. One frigid evening, she takes in the most infuriating man she's ever met...never suspecting for a moment that he could be the one her soul hungers for.

Adwen MacChristy doesn't want to be laird of Cagair Castle. With a youth spent traveling the world and sleeping beneath the stars in the company of loose women, nothing weighs on Adwen's heart like knowing the life he loves is about to come to an end. He would rather spend his days as a penniless wanderer than take on the responsibilities handed to him by his father. On his last night of freedom, Adwen stops at the inn near McMillan Castle and meets the only lass to ever deny his advances, bewitching him in an instant. Suddenly, he finds himself believing that responsibility might not mean a life spent in chains if he has a fiery lass like Jane by his side.

Will Jane allow herself to fall for a man who is the very embodiment of the reckless life she left behind, or will fate make the decision for her when it sends her through time once again?

About the Author

Bethany Claire is the USA TODAY Bestselling Author of the Scottish Time Travel Romance novels in Morna's Legacy Series. They include Love Beyond Time, Love Beyond Reason, A Conall Christmas (A Novella), and Love Beyond Hope, Love Beyond Measure, and In Due Time - A Novella.

Bethany's love of storytelling has been a life-long passion. Even in her toddler years, she would sit down with anybody that would listen as she theatrically re-told the latest fairytale that had been read to her.

As she grew, she created stories of her own, but convinced it would serve her best to follow a "conventional" career path, she tucked them away and went off to college.

Fast forward four years and about six major changes later, she realized the stories simply were not going to stay tucked away. Months away from graduating with a degree in Elementary Education, and growing more miserable with every day that brought her closer to a career she truly didn't want, she finally realized writing was the only career that would make her happy.

So, one day in the middle of a summer education course, she got up in the middle of class and walked to the Registrar's office and withdrew from the university on the spot. Since then, she has devoted herself to writing full-time and is following her dreams.

All of the books in Morna's Legacy Series by Bethany Claire are excellent reads, but this one is the best yet. I laughed out loud, cried, and felt like I was reading about my own friends and family. Loved, loved, loved it.

Recommendation: Yes! As this is now book 5 in the series, you should read the ones before to understand, at the very least, read Love Beyond Measure and In Due Time to see how Jane ended up in the past. Grace’s sister (from book 4) Jane, is teleported to the past by Morna who in all her wisdom, must know something Jane doesn’t. Morna often takes the choice for that first leap out of those she helps hands, but Jane is not as thrilled as the others. She is bored, restless, and having dreams of sexy highlanders that keep her up all night. Cooper is the reason Jane stays, but he’s quickly becoming not enough. She misses her city, needs companionship, and a purpose. Luckily, it’s not just Morna who is looking out for her. As with the rest of the series, there’s some prescription with Love Beyond Compare. Woman finds the man; man woos the woman, they sleep together, then marriage. Or is there? Jane is the unwilling romantic. She wants a man who can commit, she’s not about being used for her body and then being set aside, but she also wants Adwen. Adwen is the definition of a ladies man, use them, flatter them, and then boot them out of his bedchamber. Jane’s not that kind of gal. Their chemistry and comedic banter are perfect and is balanced by Cooper’s quick wit, and some of the most heart-wrenching loss I’ve read in this series so far. Love Beyond Compare is beyond compare, Bethany Claire’s most impressive novel yet! Audiobook Review: Lily Collingwood is, as always, enjoyable to hear. The book was 8 hours and fit perfectly during a flight to the east coast. As usual, the recording quality was excellent with no hum or distortion and made the entire focus on the story.

Jane Mitchell is a modern NYC woman transported back to 17th century Scotland by a meddling witch so she can remain part of her nephew's life. (To find out how he and his family ended up in 17th century Scotland, see books 1-4 of the series.) But after living a full life as a working woman in modern day America, Jane finds herself shiftless, bored, stir crazy and hungry for some kind of purpose to fill her days. Since it would not be suitable for the unmarried relative of the laird to seek employment outside the castle openly, Jane secretly finds work helping out at a local inn. One evening, in walks the most infuriating, but also the most attractive man she has ever met--Adwen MacChristy. Adwen has spent his youth traveling and skirt chasing. But as the laird's eldest son, his carefree days are coming to an end. Facing the end of his freedom and his coming responsibilities to his clan with as much enthusiasm as a man facing the gallows, Adwen is determined to make the best of his last trip away from the castle. But when he comes to the inn at his last stop, he meets Jane, the only lass he has ever met who recognizes him for the rebrobate that he is and denies his advances. Suddenly, Adwen is struck dumb by the realization that Jane is the kind of woman he could spend the rest of his life with. Will Adwen be able to convince Jane that he will leave his womanizing ways behind and love only her? Will Jane stop fighting her attraction to Adwen and open her heart to love? Will Adwen face up to his resposibilities as laird? Will having Jane at his side make it easier to leave his vagabond days behind and remain at the castle with her and his clan? While Jane and Adwen's love story alone is entertaining and the dialog is as witty as ever, Bethany Clare usually adds in some kind of drama or plot twist to keep the Morna's Legacy books exciting. Love Beyond Compare does not disappoint--there is plenty of action and drama in this installment to keep the reader engaged while the relationship between Adwen and Jane develops. I throoughly enjoyed Book 5 and began reading Love Beyond Dreams almost right away.
