Book Review: Smoke In Her Eyes

Smoke In Her Eyes by Anna Belfrage

Publication Date: March 15, 2019

Timelight Press

eBook & Paperback; 352 Pages

Series: The Wanderer, Book Two

Genre: Romance/Erotica/Paranormal


Six months ago, Helle Madsen would have described herself as normal. Now she no longer knows if that terms applies, not after her entire life has been turned upside down by the reappearance of not one, but two, men from her very, very distant past.

Helle Madsen never believed in mumbo-jumbo stuff like reincarnation—until she came face to face with Jason Morris, a man who purportedly had spent fifty lives looking for her. Coping with being reunited with the lover from her ancient past was one thing. Having Sam Woolf, her vindictive nemesis from that same ancient past join the party was a bit too much. Suddenly, Helle finds herself the reluctant heroine of a far-flung, time-transcending epic story, one in which pain and loss seem to play a very big part.

This time round, Jason and Helle are determined to make it to the happily ever after. Unfortunately, Sam Woolf will stop at nothing to crush them. That ride into the golden sunset seems awfully far away at times…

Review: I have to say, Anna Belfrage is a favorite author of mine. If I see she has a new book, I'm reading it.  Seriously, go out and read the Graham saga...especially if you like Outlander.

Smoke In Her Eyes is the second book in The Wanderer series. I recommend with Anna's series that you read them in order, because of continuity, also because they are so darn good you'll want to.

This book had reincarnation front and center and it reminded me of another favorite author of mine, M.J. Rose. I love the idea of lovers going across the ages to find one another until they get it right. Oh it has a little of the Time slip going on too, for those of you that loved The Graham saga. (And I did)

Its a little darker than her other books, but that's fine with me too. I like to change things up in my reading and all that matters is the quality of the story is there, and it is here in spades.

If you are looking for a new series to obsess over. This is definitely one you should try.

About the Author
Had Anna been allowed to choose, she’d have become a time-traveller. As this was impossible, she became a financial professional with three absorbing interests: history and writing.

Anna has authored the acclaimed time travelling series The Graham Saga, set in 17th century Scotland and Maryland, as well as the equally acclaimed medieval series The King’s Greatest Enemy which is set in 14th century England. (Medieval knight was also high on Anna’s list of potential professions. Yet another disappointment…)

With Jason and Helle, Anna has stepped out of her historical comfort zone and has loved doing so.

Thank you for a lovely review. I rather like the idea that you obsess over my books :)
