Morgan Kirkwood was only nineteen when her performance at the Seoul Olympics made her name 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.
Jack Temple’s been in the CIA long enough. He’s planning to resign, but finding that Morgan Kirkwood is in trouble, he accepts one last assignment and rushes to her rescue. 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. Being in the CIA offers him no opportunity for entanglements and she was definitely a complication. Now that someone wanted 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.
