Ten things you didn’t know about Isabeau Montgomery.
- Unlike most, lyrics are not the first thing Isabeau hears when listening to a new song. Music is what stands out to her. Typically she has to hear a song multiple times before she ‘hears’ the words accompanying the music.
- She has issues with her height. She doesn’t like standing only 5’4” tall with a petite build so she attempts to compensate with heels. Isabeau wears heels every single day. The only time she isn’t wearing heels is when she’s jogging or sleeping.
- Isabeau’s favorite clothing staple is retro music T-shirts.
- Everything Isabeau made as a child star was placed in trust. She gained access to her money upon turning 21 but doesn’t touch it. Most people have no idea just how much she’s worth, and that’s the way she likes it.
- She owns a bar but has never drank alcohol.
- Isa knew who Noah was the moment he stepped into her bar; as a teenager she had a Black Phoenix poster on her bedroom wall.
- She loves to cook and experiments with really complicated dishes as much as time allows.
- She feeds the big stray tomcat that hangs out near her bar.
- She loves cookies – all types of cookies – but hates pie.
- Isabeau doesn’t like to recall her past and has packed away everything related to her years of touring in a closet at her father’s.
Thirteen years — that's how long Isabeau Montgomery has been living a lie. After an automobile accident took her mother's life, Izzy hid herself away, surviving the only way she knew how. Now she is happy in her carefully reconstructed life. That is until he walks through the door of her bar...
Black Phoenix singer/front man Noah Clark came to Long Island City with a goal — one that doesn't include an instant, electric attraction to the dark-haired beauty behind the bar. Coaxing her into his bed won't be easy, but he can't get her pale, haunted eyes nor her skill on the piano out of his head.
Can Noah help Isabeau overcome the past? Or will her need to protect her secret force her back into hiding and destroy their chance at happiness?
