I found the first half of the book very promising but lost interest in the plot half way through.

I always hope to find a romance book that has a great story, passionate love scenes, a twist of the magical or fantasy, powerful leading characters!!

What can I say? I loved...this book!! I had grown quite bored with reading historical romance novels for a couple of years, because they all seemed so similar in plotting, and just couldn't hold my interest! I don't know how I discovered this author, but I'm glad that I did! The characters had their own unique personalities,it wasn't difficult at all to become swept into the story. However, the first few pages were VERY difficult for me as it goes into details of what had happened to Ronin's family, and how they were murdered. Beyond that, the story really moved along and I couldn't put it down. Now, I am anxiously waiting for the sequel that Amazon has already shipped. Yes, the sex scenes were pretty explicit, but this just builds to their growing attraction to each other. Maybe some people don't have that kind of strong, fierce, once in a lifetime love for that one special person in their life? If you desire a well written historical romance that has EVERYTHING to offer, including the "sex", than by all means you must read this book! Enjoy!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ronin McTaver's whole family has been killed by Lothian the Serpent who wants to get his hands on a tapestry which will lead him to the Scottish Gold. Ronin manages to escape into the mysterious Loch Nidean Forest which is guarded by its forest inhabitants. There he does battle with the forest people and captures Kal, a dirty young lad, as a hostage until he reaches the saftey of the edge of the forest. Little does he know that Kal is in fact Kalial, the forest princess who is sworn to protect her forest. Confused, Ronin, finds himself attracted to the young "lad".

Ronin takes Kalial to his cousin's to find back up to attack Lothian and reclaim his lands. However, he finds out that his cousin Percy is not the man he used to know. Together Ronin and Kalial help train an army of young men to do battle with the Serpent. Along the way they find themselves falling for each other.

I found the first half of the book very promising but lost interest in the plot half way through. I found neither Ronin nor Kalial very endearing and couldn't really care for these two characters. However, the sex scenes were very graphic and very hot, although sometimes out of context of the story. I found myself speed reading just to read the sex scenes. There's even a scene where Ronin and Kalial's horses have sex. Enough said! If you love animals and magical forests I recommend Jill Barnett's "Wild" instead of this book which is much better written and more romantic.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
At Castle Roseneath, Ronin McTaver survives the murders of his family though he feels haunted by the cries of his one sister who did not have time to receive the poison from their desperate mother to stop their betrayer Lothian from raping and torturing them. An earthquake saved his sister with death and Ronin escapes without revealing the secrets of the tapestry of the Second Hunt that is a roadmap to the Scottish Gold.
Ronin flees to the "safety: of the evil Loch Nidean Forest. Inside the forbidden forest, Ronin faces a new foe, but captures the boy leader of his attackers. Using his prisoner as a hostage he forces the forest fighters to cede him safety to the ocean. Ronin is stunned that he is attracted to a male especially an underage lad. He is unaware that his prisoner is a she. As an inferno threatens the forest, thinking that Lothian's mercenaries caused it and how he failed his siblings, Ronin vows to keep the lad safe even from his own unwanted desire, but what will happen when he learns that Kal is a female who wants him too?
UNDER A WILD SKY is a tremendous Scottish historical romance that fans will appreciate and place immense pressure on debut author Sasha Lord to match the intensity of this descriptive novel. Ronin is a wonderful protagonist struggling with guilt for living and with his growing attraction towards his too young "male" prisoner. Kal seems mystical as she lives in a forest feared by outsiders with her only true friend being a Scottish wild McCat. This is a winner for sub-genre readers.

I had never really thought to write a review, until now!! I just have to let people know that they SHOULDN'T pass over this book!! I always hope to find a romance book that has a great story, passionate love scenes, a twist of the magical or fantasy, powerful leading characters!! This book gave me everything I look for. A glorious and strong hero and a magical heroine. The passion between them is mind blowing!! If you don't like sex scenes being too explicit..this is not for you!! It is HOT!!! I can't stand those books where, in the love scenes they start to kiss and then.....voila....it's the next morning. I'm greedy....I like the full shebang!! (Wink!!) This book DEFINITELY has it. The mystical qualities of our heroine are beautiful; our hero....to die for!! (As usual) And the story itself truly is a great one. I'd love to tell you more but I just don't wish to give anything away!! Please.....take my word for it (and those of the other reviewers)....READ THIS BOOK.....you'll honestly LOVE it!! Just beware......keep a fan handy for those VERY STEAMY love scenes!! And they truly are LOVE scenes!!
I'm going to check out more 'Sasha Lord' books!! I just hope Ms Lord isn't like some authors who manage a brilliant first book with all you require for a marvellous read....then the following books become so different.....less love scenes......stories become bland etc. PLEASE Sasha Lord.....keep the imagination you have now and embroider on it!! Please don't take away from it!! Bravo for a truly stunning book!! And THANK YOU for giving us romance readers a true gem of a book!!
