It began nearly 400 years ago. The Conall clan and all their people were murdered in a surprise attack, their beloved castle and all evidence of who destroyed them burned to the ground with their bodies. In the centuries following, archaeologists searched through the ruins, looking for any evidence of what or who had caused the untimely demise of such a powerful Scottish clan. All efforts were fruitless until a spell put in place by an ancient Conall ancestor finally began to work its magic.
Texas kindergarten teacher Brielle Montgomery finds comfort in the mundane routines of her life, but when her archaeologist mother asks her to accompany her on a dig in Scotland, she decides to step out of her comfort zone. Once in Scotland they discover a secret spell room below the castle ruins, and Bri finds herself transported back in time and suddenly married to the castle's ill-fated laird. Now she must work to change the fate of his people, all while trying to find a way to return to her home and century. But with each passing day, Bri finds herself falling more deeply in love with her new husband. If she can find a spell to bring her home, will she use it? If she stays, will it ultimately mean her own death as well?

It is engaging it isn't of the standard of the Outlander books but the characters are good and it is amusing. Best of the faux Scottish time travel copies that are all systematically coming out of the wood work. Well narrated emotion wise. However, my advice would be, invest in someone who can actually do a Scottish accent let alone a highland accent. I had to get past the accent as best I could it made me burst out laughing at first but I got use to it.

Series: Book 1: Morna’s Legacy
Characters: Brielle Montgomery & Eoin Conall
Setting: TX & Scotland (Past/Present)
Mature Themes: Sex, violence, animal violence
The audiobook was wonderful! The voice actress for the used a variety of voices and accents making the entire listen more enjoyable and easy to understand who was speaking. Her Scottish accent was realistic and pleasant to listen to, while her male voices were a bit lackluster. A partnership of voice actor/actress would have better suited the story and the expository sections felt robotic compared to the life she gave the characters. The recording quality was great with no hum or distortion and made the entire focus on the story.
A highland romance to keep you warm at night and dreaming of far off places. The action, intrigue, and pure heart will have any romance reader ready to buy the second book. As far as I know, this is not a historical romance novel and may not fill that want.
What a great story from all aspects! The writing was solid, the characters were detailed and well rounded and the setting (modern and past) were detailed and described enough to immerse you without bogging you down in details. The love story is realistic with the couple not instantly falling into bed with one another and just as one might expect, Bri attempts to shield her heart as long as she can in her unfamiliar surroundings.
Bri is a wonderfully spunky woman with a huge heart and the ability to fill a room with her laughter and determination. Once she lets herself go and accepts what her heart is telling her she opens up to her new world and fills the pages with her love for Eoin and his time. The magic is an after thought to the story and fits seamlessly into the intrigue and politics that make up the majority of the non-romance plot. The connections between the characters are real and heartfelt, the stable master to his horses, Eoin to his brother, and Bri to her mother, etc. All off this adds to the detailed and rich world created.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
What made the experience of listening to Love Beyond Time: A Scottish Time-Traveling Romance the most enjoyable?
This was my first romance that didn't involve vampires and I really didn't know what to expect. I was afraid it would be sappy and full of heaving bosoms. It wasn't any of that. It was a good solid story that was easy to follow and listen to.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Love Beyond Time: A Scottish Time-Traveling Romance?
There were a few for me but I wouldn't want to spoil the book for anyone. Listen and choose for yourself.
What about Lily Collingwood’s performance did you like?
I thought she did a good job. She was consistent with her character voices and accents so you had a clear idea of who was saying what.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I did not have any extreme reactions to the book. I felt like I knew what was coming next. But I NOT in a predictable or boring way. Just that the book flowed so well it was easy to follow along.
Any additional comments?
I can’t say that I loved this book, but I really, really liked it and was entertained from start to finish. I would definately recommend it to someone looking for a new series and an easy listen. I reserve my 5 star ratings to the stories that I absolutely love and couldn’t live without, so that is the only reason it is a 4. But this story is a solid 4 and I don’t think anyone would regret the purchase. I know I will listen to it again.
