#BookReview #BlogTour A Torch In His Heart by Anna Belfrage
My Rating: 🤩🤩🤩🤩🤩
Series: The Wanderer 1
Publisher: Troubador Publishing
Available: 31 August 2018
In the long lost ancient past, two men fought over the girl with eyes like the Bosporus under a summer sky. It ended badly. She died. They died.
Since then, they have all tumbled through time, reborn over and over again. Now they are all here, in the same place, the same time and what began so long ago must finally come to an end.
Ask Helle Madsen what she thinks about reincarnation and she’ll laugh in your face. Besides, Helle has other stuff to handle, what with her new, exciting job in London and her drop-dead but seriously sinister boss, Sam Woolf. And then one day Jason Morris walks into her life and despite never having clapped eyes on him before, she recognises him immediately. Very weird.
Even more weird is the fact that Sam and Jason clearly hate each other’s guts. Helle’s life is about to become extremely complicated and far too exciting.
ADULT CONTENT: This book contains explicit sex scenes
I absolutely adored this book from the first page, and loved it more the further in I got! If you love Fantasy, Dystopian Romances with unique storylines and revelations throughout, along with some steamy sex scenes, then this is the perfect book for you!
At the start I wondered where the story would go, the Blurb was intriguing and sounded just that bit different to anything else I have encountered in the genres this book had been placed.
The opening scenes are far from slow, in fact they are fast paced with some serious bite, with opening scenes that grab hold of the reader instantly and so surprisingly, that you constantly need one more page!
I loved each of the individual Characters, even the ones I also loathed with a passion. I loved their individuality, their uniqueness, and the fact that they are all perfectly imperfect. The Guy we root for is far from perfect, he’s sweet and endearing, but tough and willing to stand up for things, yet he also doesn’t always get it right.
I love the fact that whilst there is the element of destined love going on, it is neither easy nor simple. In fact, both are trying to understand their feelings in different ways, although I don’t want to say too much more for fear of giving away some of the storyline!
I love the fact that we gradually see bits of the past, each an intriguing revelation into what has brought the characters to where they are, and why they respond in the ways that they do. Each scene is new and adds new depth to the characters we are reading about, a wider understanding of their past experiences and all that has made them who they are now. I feel like all three have their reasons for acting in the ways they do, whether that is because they feel entitled and became dangerously obsessive for that, or whether they feel guilty and want to atone in some way.
There is so much going on with this story, and it was full of action and suspense that easily grip and make you both wonder and dread what will happen next. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next book, what else we learn about the past, and where the story takes each of them later!
There are elements I am excited to see continued, whether because I love the character or know there is more suspense and surprising story twists to come, and those I am nervous about, because I have come to enjoy the thrills and the heartwarming equally, and I feel like this is an author I will have to watch closely! If this book is anything to go by, I seriously doubt that this will be smooth sailing for our main characters from here!
The ending has certainly left me needing more, and I will be eagerly awaiting book 2! Pick this up! But perhaps, give yourself a couple of days to immerse yourself in it. You won’t want to put this down!

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.
