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?

The hero had a past, and when I foun...

1) How is this Wynette, Texas? It takes place in New York, Cali, France, and Austria.2) I don't know what it is with these books, but the feel like they take forever to read. I don't mind the main characters, despite the fact that they aren't always likeable. I feel like I get bogged down the parent...

This was so much different than I thought it was going to be. I really did enjoy it. I didn't know exactly where it was going and I kept trying to figure it out. Then I just stopped doing that and enjoyed the ride. I don't think I really expected a love story between Jake and Fleur so I was plea...

I almost gave up on this one. It took me quite a while to care what was happening. I really didn't like Belinda because she was so weak, so fixated on Hollywood and actors and stardom and such. And she could care less who got hurt along the way to her dreams. She went to the Garden of Allah with one...

The cover is deceptive - this book was originally published in 1987, and it shows. It has all the over-blown character and plot that turned me off romance novels for 20 years after I read the likes of Lace and Princess Daisy - there is the unloved but beautiful heroine with the ugly duckling comple...
