Duchess -- Book Three in the Daughters of Fortune series.
Susan May Warren

I have really enjoyed the Daughters of Fortune series. Each book has done a great job of standing alone, yet they weave together in a fabulously complex manner if you read all three!

This book takes you inside the wild world of early Hollywood and the intrigue of Germany's rise at the beginning of  WWII. The characters are struggling to find their places in a world that has no lack of expectations. Susan May Warren has done a masterful job of researching these different times and places, and her writing is the kind that makes you forget that your family would like supper (yes, that happened to me and I didn't want to put the book down)!

I hope this series either continues or transforms into another series. I'd love to learn more about Coco, Sophie, Angelica, and Finn!

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.
