About the book:
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.
I had a feeling going into Duchess that it would be a good read - I just didn't know how good. I loved this book so much and it is definitely a favorite of mine now. Wow, Susan May Warren definitely knows how to write a gripping story with a great message. Duchess had me feeling so many emotions and there were a few times I started crying because the story was so touching.
I loved the characters! Rolfe was such a great guy - I absolutely loved his character and would say he was my favorite from Duchess, though Rosie is a close second. I'm sad Duchess is the final book in the Daughters of Fortune series - I just don't want to say goodbye to them yet - but the ending was wonderful and wrapped things up very well.
The whole movie making aspect in Duchess was really interesting and I loved getting a glimpse into that world. I also really liked another part of the story, but I won't tell you what it is as I don't want to spoil it for future readers.
Duchess was a fantastic book and I completely loved reading it! If you enjoy books with drama, romance, intrigue, and a great message, I definitely recommend Duchess - just be sure to read Heiress and Baroness first or I think you'll be a little confused about some things (this is definitely a series best read in order).
