(Radio.com) Prince's death one year ago adrenalized longstanding fascination with his mysterious and colorful personal life--including his marriage to protege Mayte Garcia. The dancer and musician was married to the Purple One from 1996 through 1999, and as a couple they faced major challenges like the death of their infant son shortly after his birth. In her new memoir "The Most Beautiful: My Life with Prince", Mayte reflects on Prince's role in her life but doesn't think of the book as a "tell-all."

"I started writing this book years ago. I wanted to remember, just, my childhood," Garcia told Billboard. "People would tell me, especially after my marriage to Prince, you need to write a book because you've had a crazy life."

She said Prince's death accelerated the writing and publishing process of the book, but she approached it with deep respect for his life and legacy. "It was never like a tell-all or to talk bad about my relationship and my past. Actually, it was done for love, and then when he passed, then I really felt the urgency to do it because I know a lot of people are going to come out with books and stories, but none like mine."
