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 notsure 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!
Once the action starts you will not be able to put the book down because you will want to see if they will make it out of their situations and if Jack and Morgan will come to grips that they love each other and have been in love for twelve years. Although you are reading you can picture all the activities in your mind and it feels as if you are at a movie.
I truly recommend this book to all romance and action book readers. You will truly love every minute.
