Katie Murphy is the manager of overnight pop sensation, Duchess, whose biggest gimmick is that no one knows her true identity. Katie’s job is to keep this secret no matter the cost. When Duchess agrees to perform in a benefit concert for wounded veterans, Katie gets more than she bargained for when she meets Chase.
Carter Chase went from being a soldier in the Army to volunteering at Veterans’ Aid. The charity helped him through a dark time and he would do anything for them, including help plan a benefit concert. But when he finds out the main act is Duchess, the British pop diva who makes fun of America, he is ready to bail out—until he meets Duchess’s manager, Katie Murphy.
As they work together, Chase soon becomes a risk to Duchess’s true identity . . . and also to Katie’s heart.

Duchess basked in the glow. “Are you ready to dance?”
response was deafening, and she fed off the energy. She waited for the fog to
mask the wires attached to the hidden belt inside her dress. As the first few
notes of her new single floated from the back of the stage out to the screaming
audience, a real smile lifted the corner of her mouth. This was her audience,
and they were under her spell.
