Welcome to the world of the Glitter Baby
Fleur Savagar is the most beautiful woman in the world . . . to everyone but herself. With her oversized hands and paddle-boat feet, her streaky blond hair and funny green eyes, she lives a life filled with secrets that began before she was born. That was when her bewitching mother left home to find James Dean and met Errol Flynn instead. Now Fleur has to grow up quickly, and life won't make that easy.
Jake Koranda is both New York's most brilliant playwright and Hollywood's hottest actor. Difficult, talented, and tormented, he has no patience for international glamour girls, not even ones with beautiful bodies and smart-aleck mouths. But there's more to the Glitter Baby than shine, and Fleur's tougher than Jake expects. Even with the odds stacked against her, she's fiercely determined to discover the woman she's destined to be.
An ugly duckling who can't believe she's turned into a swan . . . A tough-guy movie star with a haunted past . . . In a land of broken dreams, can two unlikely lovers trust their hearts?

Susan Elizabeth Phillips soared onto the New York Times bestseller list with Dream a Little Dream. She's the only four-time recipient of the Romance Writers of America's prestigious Favorite Book of the Year Award. A resident of the Chicago suburbs, she is also a hiker, gardener, reader, wife, and mother of two grown sons.From AudioFile:
Phillips's saga spans generations in telling the story of Fleur Savagar, the secret love child of Errol Flynn and a movie-star obsessed fan. Fleur, the most beautiful model of her time, dubbed the "Glitter Baby," falls in love with Jake Koranda, a handsome but tortured movie star/playwright. Julia Gibson's smooth delivery and dramatic style are perfect for the shallow and conniving characters who work to keep Jake and Fleur apart, her movie-star-worshipping mother, and her calculating stepfather, a French aristocrat. She also portrays the gentle desperation of Fleur's stepbrother, a gay fashion designer, and captures the Southern drawl of her best friend, a perky actress. A.C.P. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
