Duchess by Susan May Warren

Duchess (Daughters of Fortune, #3)

About the Book:

The Golden Age of Hollywood is in the business of creating stars. Rosie Worth, now starlet Roxy Price, has found everything she’s wanted in the glamour of the silver screen. With adoring fans and a studio-mogul husband, she’s finally silenced the heartache of the past. Her future shines bright—until the fated Black Friday when it all comes crashing down.

When Roxy loses everything, she finds herself disgraced and penniless. Her only hope is to join forces with Belgian duke Rolfe Van Horne, a longtime film investor. But Rolfe is not who he seems, and he has other plans for Roxy and her movies—plans to support a growing unrest in Europe, plans that could break her heart and endanger her life.

When her country needs her, will Roxy have the courage to surrender her glittering world and her one true love?

My Review:

5 Stars!

Wow! What a fantastic conclusion to the Daughters of Fortune series by Susan May Warren. I absolutely loved this book, as well as the whole series. After finishing this book it made me think it will be hard to read another book since it was that good. Susan May Warren did a fantastic job at drawing me into 1930's and 40's, an era of Hollywood, Glitz and glam with WWII overshadowing all of life. The minute I started the book I knew it was going to be as good as the first two and I found myself having a hard time putting it down. One thing I will say is that this book is not stand alone and the series really needs to read in order.

I just loved following Rosie's story through the great Depression, trying to figure it out on her own to ultimately realizing she needed redemption and that Christ is what she really needed. Rosie did not have it easy, she made some bad decisions at times and was constantly trying to find happiness and worth but with faith she finally does. She learns who she it, the girl she was trying to run from. I really liked Rosie a lot even when she was hard to love.

I highly recommend this whole series to those who love Susan May Warren as well historical romance lovers. You really can't go wrong with the books and they will easily draw you into the time periods and make you really feel for the characters. Great job Susan on an outstanding series.
