Actress and performer Mayte Garcia, Prince's first wife and onetime muse, the actress, singer and dancer Mayte Garcia, is working on an "intimate memoir" about her marriage to the late music icon.

Hachette Books told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Garcia's "The Most Beautiful" is scheduled to come out in April 2017. The title is taken from Prince's 1994 hit ballad "The Most Beautiful Girl in the World," which Garcia inspired.

Garcia and Prince, who died in April, were married on Valentine's Day 1996 and were soon expecting a child. But the baby died just a week after his birth and Garcia lost another child after suffering a miscarriage. The couple divorced in 2000.

In a statement released through Hachette, Garcia said she and Prince had an "almost otherworldly connection" and that she wanted to share their story, "the highs and lows."
