She holds an Olympic gold medal
Her name is a household word
And her face is that of America's Sweetheart
So why is someone trying to kill her?

Morgan Kirkwood was only nineteen when she garnered a gold medal at the Seoul Olympics. Instantly, her name became a household word, and her face that of America's sweetheart. Twelve years later a new political faction is vying for dominance in the small republic. At the same time, the United States is electing a new president. Morgan is the linchpin in both elections and the shocking secret she holds could affect the outcome of both governments.

CIA Agent, Jack Temple is planning to resign, but discovering that Morgan Kirkwood is in trouble, he accepts one last assignment. Jack traveled as a swim team coach to Seoul at the same time Morgan was a gymnastics competitor. While his real position was to back her up in the political operation she'd agreed to perform, he found himself falling for the young gymnast. Now that someone wants more from her than an interview, Jack is back on trail, and the torch he's carrying could light more than a fire at the upcoming games.

In this heart-pounding, pulse beating government conspiracy romantic thriller, Shirley Hailstock delivers a novel that delves into the halls of Washington, DC's power players. From the complexity of government all the way to the White House, the action never stops. Whether you take MORE THAN GOLD as a beach read or a vacation companion, you won't be disappointed with this novel of suspense.

The first two were fast paced and well developed. Unfortunately in this one the writing and story were stilted as if the author was trying a new style that didn't work. The sex scenes could have easily been halved. The story was outlandish at times. Am now hesitant to try the fourth but probably will give it a try.

More Than Gold by Shirley Hailstock Review by Barb Deane, Barb's All Romance Book Store Shirley Hailstock's latest contemporary romantic suspense, an October release from BET Books/Arabesque, is entitled More Than Gold. Just in time to catch the Olympic fever generated over the last few weeks in Sydney, More Than Gold features an Olympic gymnast heroine. Morgan Kirkwood is a dichotomy. She's a tough kid who grew up on the streets. Orphaned at an early age, she knew what it meant to be homeless and on the run. Fortunately, fate stepped in through the guise of a well meaning, loving social worker who not only took Morgan home and adopted her, but also saw her talent for gymnastics and allowed her to develop it. Cut to Morgan Kirkwood, America's nineteen-year-old sweetheart. Standing on the podium, clutching red roses to her chest and singing the Star Spangled banner for all her worth. While the world watched her accept the gold in the Seoul Olympics, only a select group of government agents knew that Morgan had helped rescue an important American from a North Korean prison during a break in her competition. And only Morgan knows that an American swimming coach has captured her heart and love during the games. However, all of this took place twelve years prior to More Than Gold. Someone wants Morgan dead. She's not sure who the bad guys are, afraid to trust anyone. When Jack Temple shows up in her house just moments before shots ring out and her house goes up in smoke, she runs for her life and Jack follows. He saves her life more than once, but still she doesn't know whose side he's on. She does know that seeing him again, after twelve long years, instantly ignites the attraction between them. Jack was part of the elite government group who helped Morgan to rescue Hart Lewiston. Hart is not only the son of a Supreme Court justice; he is the front-running candidate for president now. Regardless of whoever is trying to kill Morgan, Jack will do everything in his power to keep her alive. The twists and turns of their race to freedom are exciting, unexpected, and thoroughly enjoyable. Shirley has crafted a riveting, believable romantic suspense, with the emphasis on both romance and suspense. The chemistry between Jack and Morgan sizzles right off the page. The suspense is intriguing, believable and even better, surprising. Don't miss More Than Gold - it's definitely a winner!
