Claudio Roman was forced to retire from opera two years ago after a fateful random attack caused him to lose t only his sight but also his confidence as a performer. His prowess with women, however, was t impaired. So why would he hire a petite, mousy-looking woman as his new publicist, accompanying him night and day on his world travels? Laura accepts this new position at her agency the morning after her twenty-sixth birthday, but t without hesitation. She considers herself a professional who would rather t get involved with such a lothario, but the offer is n-negotiable, and she takes up the post effective immediately. Could Laura s sincerity be just the ticket to restore hope to Claudio s cynical worldview and bring him back around to performing live with the opera?
