Backlash: Tender Trap / Aftermath
Montana has provided the setting for some of my favorite stories. In the late 1980s I wrote Tender Trap and Aftermath featuring Denver and Colton McLean—two brothers returning to their family ranch after years away, confronting the secrets left behind. I’m thrilled that they’re now available in one volume, with a striking new cover and title, Backlash . . .
1989 was a world away and a genre away from what Lisa Jackson writes these days. I usually love reading this old stuff. They shows me an authors growth and progression, even though these books can still be intense and filled with angst, just like the plots that now make up the romance genre. Both of these books follow a similar formula: Teen love gone wrong; two brothers who ...more
It is actually a reissue of two books published separately in the eighties collected together in the same edition. From my humble point of view that wasn’t a good decision.

The second half of the story is almost a carbon copy of the first half. Except it involves Denver's younger brother, Colton and his first love Cassie.
It was a refreshing change of pace to have the country setting. I will be looking for more ...more

These books are heavier on romance than on the mystery but it really enjoyed them. They are both second chance romance stories. The characters are well developed & three dimensional. The women were ...more
instead it a republished book from the '80's'.
I loath authors when they republish old works. Especially romance novels. Oh they are old and sappy romance Sh*t. I personally don't like her works of romance. If I want that I'll buy Harliquin books.
It goes with Nora Robert's and Sandra Brown. If there's more romance in the book than anything else. Even suspense and thrills..... ITS A FU*KIN' ...more
Now I've never read any Harlequin Romances, but this book exemplifies what I think they are like. If you enjoy soft, squishy porn, you may like this one. She hates him... she loves him. He hates her... he loves her. If he had less self-control he would have raped her. As it is, there's breast kissing... through clothing no less!
To be fair, I did not read the whole book. I couldn't force myself ...more

Wasn’t aware when I started this book it was two-books-in-one. Loved this story of Denver and Tessa and Colton and Cassie. Very well written from beginning to end. Montana, horses, a little bit of mysterious activity and love stories...what more could a reader ask for?!
