About The Book

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.


My Thoughts


Can you imagine living one life after another searching for your lover and every time you find her you’ll see her die?
This is Jason’s destiny, seeing her loved Helle killed on the hands of his enemy, he has been cursed to see the fate of her lover again and again till his enemy, the dominant Woolf, will conquer Helle’s heart and win it over him. This is a story inside a story, where centuries of lives are mixed together to create the present one, the definitive story of these two powerful men fighting for the love of Helle; Woolf is ready to kill anyone to have Helene’s heart but Jason is ready to die to save her loved one. Who will win? Of course you’ll have to read this book to discover the truth.
This had been a sensual and hot story, full of secondary characters that make the story more interesting and guessing which will be the next move of our main protagonists; the only problem is that this is the first book of this story, so there’s no ending yet for it and I have to admit that I didn’t know this was just the first part, I prefer when the story is told in just one book, because I would have waited till all the story is published!
This had been an entertaining read, full of passion but at the same time an interesting story to make this an engaging read, the characters are well written, even if sometimes you don’t exactly like their actions, always the motive is love.
There are a lot of open doors and unanswered questions at the end of the book, I hope we’ll know more about the story in the next book, and more about Jason’s mother, a Wanderer’s story is always interesting to discover!
If you are looking for a love story with vengeance, passion and a little bit of history, this book is for you. If you are searching for a different story, take a chance on “A Torch In His Heart”, I am sure it will surprise you!

About The Author

Anna was raised abroad, on a pungent mix of Latin American culture, English history and Swedish traditions. As a result she’s multilingual and most of her reading is historical- both non-fiction and fiction. Possessed of a lively imagination, she has drawers full of potential stories, all of them set in the past. She was always going to be a writer – or a historian, preferably both. Ideally, Anna aspired to becoming a pioneer time traveller, but science has as yet not advanced to the point of making that possible. Instead she ended up with a degree in Business and Finance, with very little time to spare for her most favourite pursuit. Still, one does as one must, and in between juggling a challenging career Anna raised her four children on a potent combination of invented stories, historical debates and masses of good food and homemade cakes. They seem to thrive…
For years she combined a challenging career with four children and the odd snatched moment of writing. Nowadays Anna spends most of her spare time at her writing desk. The children are half grown, the house is at times eerily silent and she slips away into her imaginary world, with her imaginary characters. Every now and then the one and only man in her life pops his head in to ensure she’s still there.
