Book Review: Duchess

About Duchess: Book Three in the Daughters of Fortune series.

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

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 voices-and grief-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.

My Opinion
As I always, I want to make sure you know that this is part of a series but it does pretty much stand alone. However, you WILL WANT TO BUY the other two books in the series after reading the Duchess because they are written so well and Susan May Warren is one of the best historical fiction out there! I grab up every book by her every time I can!

I love this book most of all because of the setting - my favorite for historical fiction - early 1900's in America, WWII, and the Depression. I also really loved the look at Hollywood back then. I haven't read a book like that before so this was really interesting!

As always, Susan May Warren has created a book that draws out all my emotions and really creates a lot of NOTHING getting done in my house because all I want to do is read and finish the book to see what happens! :) As always, read this book and EVERY book by Susan May Warren!
