5.0 out of 5 stars superb historical romantic fantasy Jan. 25 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The peasant girl Zarina was at the mercy of Lothian, Laird of the Serpent clan, who used and abused her. When she became pregnant, he beat her, but the infant inside remained strong. When she came close to giving birth, he gave her a knife to cut out the child. Instead, Zarina flees to the woods until her baby is born. She places her child in a boat to try to save her life. Gondin, sailing with supplies to his loved one, and is exiled for safety on the Isle of Wild Horses, brings the infant he found at sea to his beloved. She raised the child as her beloved granddaughter Alannah.

Commander Xanthier O'Bannon's ship breaks up in a storm, but he manages to reach the Isle of Wild Horses where Alannah finds him. He thinks she is cruel refusing to even look at him, but she believes he is selfish as he has not figured out that she is blind and can "feel" her environment. When her grandmother, who feels Xanthier is Alannah's destiny, dies, she agrees to leave her home with him. As they fall in love, her heritage rises to endanger her and her beloved.

ACROSS A WILD SEA is a superb historical romantic fantasy that combines medieval elements with a fine adult fairy tale like atmosphere. The lead characters are an interesting pair especially Alannah, a unique protagonist, who in some ways her isolation has left her pure, somewhat naive, but never twice. The exciting story line blends the fantasy elements inside a well written historical tae that showcases Sasha Lord's ability to provide a wild read for her fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally OUTSTANDING in EVERY RESPECT!! Jan. 29 2005
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Since my introduction to this author's work of her debut novel, UNDER A WILD SKY, first book in her `Wild Series' I've been totally awestruck by this remarkably original and creative author. In ACROSS A WILD SEA, the author has again created another remarkable heroine in Allanah. Blind since birth, Alannah's mother had set her adrift at sea, rather than risk the infant's life should the father discover she lived. A sailor found Alannah and brought her to his lover, a woman living in exile alone on an island, to be raised. Growing up with only `grandmother' and the wild horses as her companions, Alannah's remaining senses became especially attuned to nature and as she roamed the island she was able to navigate with ease giving anyone observing her the illusion that she could see, particularly when watching her gallop her wild stallion, Claudius across the seashore.

After a particularly ferocious storm when riding Claudius, Alannah came upon a man washed up from the sea. Sensing danger AND his anger, she wanted him off her island! Xanthier O'Bannon, was a very angry sea captain who blamed the fates for sinking his ship, and adding to his anger was this breathtakingly beautiful young woman who was treating him like a common sailor - totally intent on getting rid of him. After realizing he was hurt, she brought him back to the cottage where she and `grandmother' nursed him back to health. Irresistibly drawn and completely captivated, he never realizing until some time later that she was blind. With Alannah, Xanthier found a peaceful bliss that soothed his soul. After discovering her true origins coupled with her disability, he was determined to do all he could to protect her. Thinking it in her best interest, he took her off the island intending to petition the King for ownership of the island, but after learning of the existence of the island, the king made it a prize to be won in a horse race. A race that would pit them against a common enemy, the outcome deciding whether they would ever have the blissful future they both desired.

Crafting totally unique characters, the author imbues in Alannah a resourcefulness, which in spite of her disability, was a marvel to behold. While Xanthier is not as likeable a hero as one would like, (recalling his nefarious plotting against his twin brother from IN A WILD WOOOD) the author manages to imbue compassion in him for the love he has for Alannah, and the sacrifice he ultimately makes in order to save his young daughters life. With a passionately sensual love story, and suspenseful plot this latest entry is sure to please the most discriminating of readers. Read on its own merit, it's a stand alone and fascinating book; reading in conjunction with the previous novels of the series is a fabulous treat of an introduction to an extraordinary new author!! --- Marilyn, for [...] ---

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing book, amazing author Jan. 15 2006
By Lisa - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book swept me off my feet. Anyone grumbling about it has lost the beauty of old time romance and the thrill of intense passion, because Sasha Lord delivers both! The book was so remarkable, I stayed up all night reading it, then I had to re-read it again to pick up all the subtle plots Sasha weaved in. The hero is bad- a real bad alpha male that is desperate for a no-nonsense female to shape him up, and Alannah does just that. And the love!! Whew! Sasha's lyrical voice makes one feel exactly what a blind person would feel in the midst of passion. Her writing is beautiful and awe inspiring. I can't wait to read the rest of her books.

1.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't finish it... March 3 2005
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This has to be one of the worst romances I've come across. The writing is stilted, the authorial voice is heavy and intrusive. The author tells the reader how the characters are feeling and what their motivations are very blatantly rather than letting the characters reveal themselves through their actions. The hero was deeply unsympathetic(if some creep strongarmed me onto a ship, locked me in a room and went off to fix my future for me, his chances of getting willing action would disappear, never to be seen again), the pairing totally implausible (except for the fact that the heroine was 16, and we were all morons and put up with more than we should have at 16), and, well, the writing was awful.

This is not an author I will ever spend money on again...
