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…

Smoke In Her Eyes is an hugely entertaining and gripping read which is rather steamy in places!
I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of reincarnation so the blurb for this book really appealed to me. What I liked most about this book was the concept that even if you did get the chance to redo your life things might not necessarily be better. I thought this made the story seem very realistic and has kept me thinking about it long after I’ve finished reading.
The love story between Helle and Jason was great to read about and I found that I really enjoyed watching it develop. Again the author has created an intriguing idea that even if you are meant to be together it doesn’t mean that the relationship will be perfect. I also liked that the book wasn’t based on a simple mishap or miscommunication but was more complicated than that which made the story really interesting.
The plot moves at a great pace and there is always lots going on to keep the reader interested. Some of the love scenes between Helle and Jason were rather steamy which I wasn’t expecting and while it didn’t bother me, if you aren’t into that sort of thing you might wish to give this book a miss. This is the second book in the series but I feel it could easily be read as a standalone, like I have, as anything you need to know is explained.
Huge thanks to Anne Cater for inviting me onto the blog tour and for my copy of this book. I’ll look forward to reading the next in the series!
About The Author:
Had Anna been allowed to choose, she’d have become a professional time-traveller. As such a profession does not exist, she settled for second best and became a financial professional with two absorbing interests, namely history and writing. These days, Anna combines an exciting day-job with a large family and her writing endeavours. Plus she always finds the time to try out new recipes, chase down obscure rose bushes and initiate a home renovation scheme or two.
Her most recent release, A Torch in His Heart, is a step out of her comfort zone. Having previously published historical fiction & historical romance, with this first book about Jason and Helle Anna offers a dark and titillating contemporary romance, complete with a time-slip angle and hot & steamy scenes.
Her first series, The Graham Saga, is set in 17th century Scotland and Virginia/Maryland. It tells the story of Matthew and Alex, two people who should never have met – not when she was born three hundred years after him. With this heady blend of time-travel, romance, adventure, high drama and historical accuracy, Anna hopes to entertain and captivate, and is more than thrilled when readers tell her just how much they love her books and her characters. There are nine books in the series so far, but Anna is considering adding one or two more…
Her second series is set in the 1320s and features Adam de Guirande, his wife Kit, and their adventures and misfortunes in connection with Roger Mortimer’s rise to power. The King’s Greatest Enemy is a series where passion and drama play out against a complex political situation, where today’s traitor may be tomorrow’s hero, and the Wheel of Fortune never stops rolling.
