Setting: Contemporary America

Sensuality: 8

Olympic gymnast Morgan Kirkwood was only 19 when CIA agent Jack Temple recruited her for undercover work at the Korean Olympics. Years later, they meet again when Morgan's cover is blown and Jack answers her call for help from the CIA. Someone holds a grudge against Morgan for having helped the U.S. government free an inmate from a South Korean prison 12 years before, and that unknown someone is determined to kill her.

Morgan has never forgotten the handsome CIA agent, and Jack has never been able to wipe Morgan from his memory either. Now the two of them are thrown together, their lives in danger as they're hunted relentlessly by powerful, unknown killers, while Morgan wonders if she can really trust Jack. Who wants Morgan dead? Is it the Korean mob, searching for vengeance after twelve years? Are the assassins somehow connected to the man Morgan helped save from that Korean prison, Hart Lewiston, now a U.S. senator and potential presidential candidate? Or is it someone in the CIA who believes Morgan left Korea with more than an Olympic gold medal--perhaps secret information?

More Than Gold is a nonstop, roller coaster ride of thrills and chills coupled with a riveting romance between a hero and heroine who are fearlessly brave, smart, and passionately committed to survival. Hailstock has single-handedly redefined the nature and scope of the term "romantic suspense" and raised the bar by which readers measure a spectacular story. With this level of plot and prose, Hailstock is a sure bet to hit the bestseller list. --Lois Faye Dyer
