Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Istabelle O'Bannon is the bold, reckless heroine of this entry in Sasha Lord's medieval Wild series (In a Wild Wood, Across a Wild Sea). As sea captain, Istabelle plays Robin Hood to protect the Scottish seacoast villages from marauders. Beloved by her men, beholden to no one, Istabelle can do almost anything by herself. But, to retrieve something precious from her archenemy, she calls for help from her cousin Mangan, who, for various reasons, sends his friend, the warrior Ruark, in his place.

Of course Ruark falls for Istabelle immediately. What follows includes confusion (as Istabelle thinks he is Mangan), swashbuckling adventures, and a whole lot of passion -- all of which Sasha Lord blends nicely into a colorful, fast-paced fairy tale. Ginger Curwen

    I don't know what they were talking about!!!

    I loved this book, the characters really meshed well, they had great chemistry. I don't know why they keep saying she is a heartless murderer when she isn't!! Great book, don't listen to the reviews below!

    The heroine was a cold-blooded murder with no honor

    Despite the back cover blurb that described the heroine as 'a Robin-hood who protects coastal villages against pirates and marauders,' the heroine of this book is nothing of the sort. When we first meet her, on land, she steals the money purse and sword of the hero, who's out for a swim, and justifies it with 'The unwary deserve to lose their belongings!' Sorry, but that's not being a 'Robin Hood,' that's just being a thief. The first time we see her on her ship, she, against the advice of her crew, attacks a merchant ship--NOT a pirate ship, or a marauder, but a legitimate merchant carrying legitimately purchased gifts for a Scotish lord's new bride. She orders them to drop sail and surrender, and when they do not (after all, why surrender to a pirate attack?) she orders her crew to board them. When they fight to protect their ship and goods--her own countryman's legitimately purchased goods, remember--she kills most of the crew. The few that are left alive, she sets adrift in the lifeboat, telling them, 'Let's see how you fare on the ocean in a small craft!' Not sure where the 'Robin Hood' comparison came from. This woman is just a thief, a pirate and a cold-blooded murder. Personally, I want a heroine I can admire, who I like, who I root for in the story and want to succeed. Not someone who reminds me of a street thug. This book is an immature attempt at adventure, with a heroine with no moral compass. Her entire viewpoint is a bunch of ultra-left-wing (i.e. Stalinist) drivel suggesting that anyone who has money deserves to have it stolen, becuase there are people who have less, and everyone deserves to have the same, regardless of whether or not they work for it. In fact, rather than work for it, it's ok to just steal it. This is a surprising viewpoint from a writer who's blurb states that she was involved in competitive horse show jumping ($$$) and is a veterinarian ($$$). I've always wanted a horse, but could never afford one... I wonder how she'd feel if I stole one of hers... After all, why should she deserve to have one if I can't?... Don't waste your $7.99 on this book--or rather, let it be stolen. This book isn't worth it.

    Beyond the Wild Wind

    Sasha Lord has outdone herself in this action packed adventure! Intense characters developed with skillfil prose make you so involved that you almost see Istabelle and Ruark crossing swords directly in front of you. Hot love and even hotter sex make you sweat... and the ending scene keeps you guessing until the very end. A WILD ride in a WILD series, this is a definate keeper!!

    Beyond the Wild Wind

    I was lucky enough to get an advance copy of this book, and I am amazed that Sasha can continue to deliver such fantastic books! This one is full of wild adventure, hot romance and plot twists that keep you glued to the pages. I couldn't put it down! The characters are so real, I can see them come alive through the lyrical writing. This is a must read!!

    An intriguing historical romance

    Sea Captain Istabelle O¿Bannon of the Adventuress steals loot from pirates to redistribute back to their victims. However, she has been captured by her enemy Horik who takes her greatest treasure from her something that she needs to have returned if she is to regain her confidence. Desperate for help she sends a note to a monastery where her best childhood friend Mangan O¿Bannon is spending a year of reflection. When mercenary Ruark Haagan arrives at the monastery seeking help for his badly injured companion Sven, Mangan cuts a deal. Ruark goes in his place to assist Istabelle in exchange for no fee for caring of Sven.------ Ruark assumes that Istabelle is just a silly lady with no real troubles. She thinks he is Mangan who she has not seen in a decade so is stunned when he refuses to help her. He changes his mind, but fears he must not reveal his identity for he will scare her off. As she keeps secret her treasure from her champion, Ruark and Istabelle fall in love, but first with his help she must confront her devil Horik while her beloved must reconsider his theory that there is no place called home.----- BEYOND THE WILD WIND is an intriguing historical romance that takes off from the moment that Istabelle tosses the bathing Ruark¿s breeches high on a tree and absconds with his sword. The story line never slows down as she mistakes his identity as her anointed hero, a role the mercenary does not want to be, but his desire of her gives him no choice. The final exhilarating confrontation provides a too convenient solution to part of Istabelle's dilemma, but also climaxes a delightful romance.------ Harriet Klausner
