Book Blog Tour Stop - Duchess: Daughters of Fortune by Susan May Warren





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 Thoughts:

I have really looked forward to this installment of the Daughters of Fortune series, and I'm so pleased to say that I wasn't disappointed at all!

 Susan May Warren takes her readers into the heart of the birth of the movie industry with "Duchess," and it is a fascinating journey. She captures the essence of the time period in this novel brilliantly, and the thrilling storyline that moves from glamorous Hollywood to pre-World War II Germany is fast paced and intriguing. The characters are amazing, as usual, and it's great to see the return of favorite characters from the  previous novel.  I would love to see Susan carry on this series with stories of Rosie's daughter, Coco!

Fans of historical fiction will love this story, as well as those who enjoy inspirational fiction.
