Angelique is no ordinary diva. She’s the world’s greatest singer – and mystery. That’s why Brian Andrews, an American investigative reporter at Our World magazine, is assigned to do what others have failed: uncover Angelique’s past and secrets.

But Angelique herself has never known her past and fears that she will never see her future, thanks to a controlling couple who hold her career and life in their tight fists. Raised by nuns in an abbey in France, she has never known freedom. Brian offers her hope by aiding in her escape from her sequestered life, putting his career on the line.

Is he after the glory of the big story, or is he the one person Angelique can finally trust to help her?


Angelique was raised by nuns at an abbey in France.  She has a beautiful angelic voice that captures all that hear it.  Angelique is young and naive when is thrust in to the clutches of the Davidson’s.  In the end it’s a double edge sword because without them she might not have had the fame and money she ends up having. 

Brian Andrews is an investigative reporter from the United States, he works for Out World Magazine.  He has been given a task that everyone before him failed at, finding out Angelique’s past.  He is a hot and sexy man who after meeting Angelique wants to protect her. 

The chemistry between Angelique and Brian is blistering.  While Angelique has been sheltered its easy to see she is no fool and she did not fall for Brian because he was there and saved her.  The sex scenes were scorching hot. 

I found the story very well written.  The main and secondary characters were realistic and intriguing.  I really liked this story, even more that I thought I would after I read the summery.  I read this book in one sitting.  I hope there is a sequel and we get to see Angelique and Brian again.  Overall, this was a magnificent story.  I will be reading more by Nancy Loyan Schuemann in the future.
