2 stars for Iris Johansen’s publisher for having the cojones to reprint “Touch the Horizon”, a 1984 Loveswept story. If you’ve read this one before, there’s nothing new. If you haven’t, be prepared for a story very much influenced by the times of its publication. I’m a big Johansen fan and bought this book on the basis of her name. Wish I’d just traded for the original.
Billie is an orphan who leads a gypsy lifestyle. David is an American by birth but lives in the palace in the mysterious desert city of Zalandan. David rescues Billie from a sandstorm and is immediately lovestruck. But he’s very mystical and mysterious. Billie only believes in what she can see and has no intentions of staying still long enough to care for David.
VERY different. VERY sappy. VERY early in Johansen’s career (I hope).
