Author Biography

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 told them fairytales as if she was sharing life-saving information.

As she grew, she began creating 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. Six 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 was going to 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.

She lives in the Texas Panhandle with her two loyal and perfect dogs, Charlie and Flag.

In Love Beyond Reason (Book 2 of Morna's Legacy Series) by Bethany Claire, kindergarten teacher Brielle Montgomery from Texas finds herself looking at a strange, very old portrait that looks remarkably similar to her own portrait. As she reads the description on the plaque, she finds herself being taken back to 1600s Scotland to the very place her mother has spent her entire archaeological career researching, Conall Castle. A 17th Century Scottish lass, Blaire MacChristy is forced into an arranged marriage and detests her future groom. The day of her wedding she fled to the basement of the castle to find herself staring a portrait of herself. As she reads the description beneath, she finds herself being taken to Conall Castle, only it's in ruins and the year is 2013. Each girl must adjust to the scary and new life style of a different time, pretending to be the other.

Bethany Claire creatively introduces readers to the power of witchcraft, and the power of true love and friendship. The plot thickens in book 2 of the Morna's Legacy Series as the author depicts 1600s Scottish villains, evil people, and their plans to destroy everything and everyone in their path. The methods of transportation, weaponry, language, mannerisms, attitude, clothing, and actions of the characters within the book are very vividly and creatively described - it is as if the reader is watching a show on television, not reading a book. Love Beyond Reason should be read after reading book 1: Love Beyond Time to ensure a better understanding of the characters and plot for the reader's enjoyment.

Loved,loved,loved the entire series. I couldn'the wait to get my hands on each enchanting book! The characters were amazing in their depth and differences of each other. I really loved that every book sounds as if it could be true as you're reading it. It makes you BELIEVE in magic! The only thing it missed, I think is some really steamy Sex!! After all, you have all these incredibly hunky Scottish guys that that ooze sensuality and then such tame sex, if any. Too bad... didn'the keep from reading every one, though a little disappointed! Keep up the great work, AND PLEASE let this series go on (and on...). Thank you. Jan Patterson
