Book Description

April 14 2008

It wasn't every day a guy saw a headless beaver marching down the side of a road, not even in Chicago Stars quarterback Dean Robillard's larger-than-life world. He slammed on the brakes of his brand-new Aston Martin Vanquish and pulled over in front of her.

The beaver marched right past, her big, flat tail bouncing in the gravel, and her small, sharp nose stuck up in the air. Way up. The beaver looked highly pissed . . .

She was definitely a girl beaver because her beaver head was missing, revealing sweaty, dark hair pulled into a scraggly ponytail. He'd been praying for a little distraction from his own depressing company, so he threw open the door and stepped out onto the shoulder of the Colorado road . . .

Funny, sexy, and touching—Natural Born Charmer is the unforgettable love story of a golden boy who might be losing his luster and a spirited woman who's learned never to depend on anyone but herself.

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Veteran narrator Anna Fields (whose real name was Kate Fleming) died recently, and this audiobook—one of her final performances—shows just what a loss her passing is to the industry. This quirky romance full of eccentric, colorful characters is a perfect showcase for her talent. She creates distinctive, believable voices that bring the characters to life: the slow, deep drawl of football star Dean Robillard and the feisty, sarcastic tone of Blue Bailey, the down-on-her-luck wanderer he picks up on the road. There's also the timid, innocent, anxious-to-please quaver of 11-year-old Riley, whose irresponsible rock star dad also fathered Dean, and the crotchety, elderly, Brooklyn-tinged voice of Nina, the mean-spirited old woman who owns the small town they all end up in. Field's wonderful performance elevates the material and makes this romance even more entertaining on audio than it is in print.

From Booklist

After her ex-boyfriend Monty insists that she is the only person he ever loved, Blue Bailey packs up everything she has (which isn't much) and moves from Seattle to Colorado to be with him. But once Blue arrives, she discovers Monty has found love again with a younger, blonder new girlfriend. With few job options and practically no money, Blue thought she might be stuck in Colorado for a long time, until Dean Robillard drives through on his way to Tennessee. The last person Blue wants to ask for a favor is a way-too-gorgeous-for-his-own-good stranger who annoys her to no end. And who turns out to be the quarterback for the Chicago Stars. But Dean is Blue's only ticket out, even if it means she is stuck with him all the way to Tennessee. RITA Award-winner Phillips creates yet another classic romance in her loosely connected Chicago Stars series with this splendidly satisfying tale of love, family, and redemption. Generously seasoned with plenty of tart humor and snappy dialogue, and graced with a delightfully amusing pair of protagonists trying desperately not to fall in love, Natural Born Charmer is simply irresistible.

4.0 out of 5 stars LISTEN AND FIND OUT IF LOVE CAN CONQUER ALL Feb. 16 2007
By Gail Cooke TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Actress Kate Fleming who recorded audio books as Anna Fields died recently. Audio book fans remember her for her magnificent narrations and her versatility - reading the works of authors as diverse as Joyce Carol Oates and Molly Ivins. She won an Audie Award, and was a narrator for the 9/11 Commission Report. Kate will be greatly missed but thankfully we can still enjoy her voice performances, I treasure her take on the life of Blue Bailey in this heartwarming story by Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

Yes, this is a love story, and a funny one, too. Who can resist smiling at the thought of a young woman walking along the side of a Colorado highway in a beaver suit? Chicago Stars quarterback Dean Robillard did more than smile, he came to a quick stop and picked her up. This is a man who has it all - great looks, life in the fast line, adulation, and more money than he's quite sure what to do with.

He's on his way to Tennessee to check on a farm he recently purchased. Blue (she in the beaver suit) is down on her luck and appreciates the ride, hoping to get somewhere where she can restart her portrait painting business. Despite a bit of bickering she's quick to ingratiate herself with Dean and convince him of how much help she can be


Help is what he needs when he reaches his farm and finds that the person hired to oversee the renovations is actually his mother, April, whom he hasn't seen in years. Motherhood wasn't exactly April's thing - drugs were, and now she's trying to make amends. It's not too long before Dean's Dad appears - ditto Dean's half-sister. Can these folks ever forget and forgive?

Listen and find out whether or not love conquers all.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book is something special. May 2 2010
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love reading Susan Elizabeth Phillips and I loved this book in particular. First you have Dean,this absolutely gorgeous, rich, sexy football player who could have ANYONE and then you have Blue,a feisty, artistic, down on her luck, but never gives up quirky looking girl. You would never picture these two together as they don't really fit into each others worlds but through the course of the book they develop a sweet dependence on each other. This book has Phillips signature funniness but also her characters really come alive in this book and stay with you a long while after.

5.0 out of 5 stars NATURAL BORN CHARMER -BEST BOOK YET !! May 11 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
My favorite novel of this author has always been Heaven Texas but this book has completely taken over first place!!
It is so full of warm, witty characters who continually make you laugh throughout the book, really a jewel of a read.
This is a book you will not want to put down and you will be sad when you realize you have finished the story.
I really cannot pick my favorite character there are so many,the verbal jousting between Dean and Blue and Blue's adoration of Jack,who is Dean's father and I loved the retorts Blue thinks up when holding her own with the rude pugnacious Mrs. Garrison who owns the small town where Dean's farm is located
and as Dean says in the book his family is like Norman Rockwell on crack
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves razor edged wit and a good laugh
If only men were as interesting as the personality the author creates for
Dean's character sigh.....

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful writing Feb. 12 2008
I read all of Mrs Phillips books and this one has become one of my favorites. Characters are alive and real with a lot of humor and living in a fairy tale. The story can't be totally real but we are not reading this genre for the "reality" but for the magic. But even so I don't like characters that are two dimensional and Mrs Phillips knows how to tell a story, make you laugh and enchant you.
I think this is a book to read when you are a little down or sad or you need some cheer up. Read it and enjoy it.
