Smoke in her Eyes by Anna Belfrage (Review)

Happy Thursday! Today I am on the blog tour for Smoke in her Eyes by Anna Belfrage which is out now in both Kindle and Paperback editions. It is also available as part of Kindle Unlimited! I received a copy of this book for my participation in the tour.

First, can I just take a second to say how absolutely beautiful the cover is for this book? It’s absolutely stunning. Though I admittedly have a thing about moons… but yeah. b e a u t i f u l.

Smoke in her Eyes is the second book in The Wanderer Series by Anna Belfrange. It’s a tale of a guy who has been searching for his beloved for 50 life times and his lover, Helle. Helle can’t see her past lives, she just sees snippets and glimpses of them, however, her partner Jason, he remembers everything, including the pain of searching for her for so many lifetimes. Finally they are together! But will they live happily ever after? Not if Sam Woolf has anything to say about it.

Sam Woolf is this books bad guy, and he is a right rotten sort. He wants to destroy Jason and make Helle his own. He’s entitled and jealous and just generally horrid. Himself and Jason have some paranormal abilities, special abilities he has no qualms about using to meet his own ends. He’s also written so incredibly well. It’s easy to hate him.

Then there is Juliet. Jason’s lover from a past life. Someone he still cares deeply about. Juliet is putting a huge strain on Jason and Helle’s relationship, after a horrible accident, she’s in the hospital and Jason wants to be by her side because she has no one else. I really feel for Jason here. It’s understandably tough. Will he and Helle make it through? Will Sam Woolf get his way? You’ll have to read it and find out.

Smoke in her Eyes is a beautifully written book about lovers who have finally gotten together after actual lifetimes with some spicy, steamy scenes that are tastefully written. Anna Belfrage has created an incredibly immersive world and intriguing characters. Her world building lead me to feeling like they were almost part of MY world. The only thing I’d say is while this can be read on its own, I think you should read the first book in the series prior for a better understanding of what brought the characters to this point and their own world.

About the Book

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…

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. 

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 eight books in the series so far, but Anna is considering adding one or two more…

Presently, Anna is hard at work with her next project, a series set in the 1320s featuring 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.
