Overview

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?

wow - ONLY 10hrs?!

It was a good book. The narrator was easy to listen to, changing voices well for all the many different voices I was still able to keep up... I say ONLY 10 hours, because it felt like 20.... but kinda in a good way... I thought it was about 3 complete stories, stacked into 1 book. It could have been sagas, or a series, or something... but the author put it all in one. As a non-paper book reader, I can't imagine how thick the paper book must hve been... probably 1000s of pages. But truly it was a good story, and a continuous storyline, and it did seem complete when the author did finally draw the conclusion. I snickered to myself when I heard, "Epilogue"... and the narrator continued for another couple tracks.

Very Human Characters

This author creates some very flawed characters and allows them to mature as they interact with others in these funny, lite romances. I have been enjoying the series. I also like the link of certain characters from other stories. The mother is very whinning and at first I almost sent the audiobook back, but past tape 2 other voices became dominant and that made the book work.
