Contains 2 classic novels previously released: PIRATE'S GOLD--Proving once again that interesting things can happen when you mix business with romance. And, DARK SIDE OF THE MOON--About a love affair that strains to withstand the ravages of politics and time.
OY! I need to remember that when I find an author I like that I should never read their very early stuff! :)
This book contains two early Lisa Jackson books- "Pirate's Gold" was her first and "Dark Side of the Moon" was very early as well- and it is really obvious in the writing. The dialogue is trite and repetitive. The characters, frankly, are annoying and I had a very hard time getting through this.
Pirate's Gold--- Maren McClure & Kyle Sterling are enemies in a cutthroat, fast-track industry. He's threatening the company she fought to build; she endangering his empire. But their instant attraction will raise the stakes from risky-- to explosive. Dark Side of the Moon--- Ten years ago Andrea Monroe loved politician Jefferson Harmon, and watched helplessly as their relationship was destroyed by her brother's lies. Now they are thrust back into each other's lives, and their hardest challenge will be to trust each other--and resist their long-simmering hunger.
I'm not big into Lisa Jackson's latest work, but really enjoyed both of these from her earlier writing days, particularly 'Dark Side of the Moon'. Here's more in-depth summaries of what you'll find inside...
PIRATE'S GLOD: They were business associates, executives in the cutthroat, fast-track industry of rock music and video, both burdened with the mistakes of past relationships. As often happens, adverse circumstances drew Maren McClure and Kyle Sterling together--two passionate lovers in a competitive world.
Suddenly several videotapes were pirated, and all the evidence in Kyle's investigation implicated Maren in the crime. Kyle was furious: how could she turn against their love? Maren was devastated: how could he doubt her?
DARK SIDE OF THE MOON: Ten years before, Andrea Monroe had loved politician Jefferson Harmon, then watched helplessly as their relationship was destroyed by her brother's lies.
Time had brought Jefferson renown and Andrea a career as a television writer, but had failed to change the intensity of their feelings. Yet when mistrust clouded their renewed passion, old wounds surfaced along with new fears. Though simple trust seemed difficult, the devastating pull of their emotions demanded they leave the shadows and bring their love into the clear light of a luminous moon.
I am huge fan of Lisa Jackson's current work. The thriller genre appeals to me. I picked up this book on a whim and wasn't a huge fan. The writing was great, but it didn't fit in with my typical Lisa Jackson favorites.
From what I can tell, this leans more toward her older style.
If you enjoy Lisa Jackson's writing and favor the romance over the thrill..I definitely suggest this one for you. It is the best of both worlds.
