Duchess by Susan May Warren

Duchess (Daughters of Fortune, #3)Book Description:
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.

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

My Thoughts:
This was a good book.  Rosie Worth is now an actress in Hollywood's golden age and she goes by Roxy Price.  She has achieved everything she wanted.  She has a husband that propels her career and fans that adore her.  Then, Black Friday happens and Roxy loses everything and her only option is to partner with Rolfe Van Horne.  He is a film investor that has ulterior motives for Roxy.  Can she do what she needs to for the greater good?
I loved watching Rosie/Roxie change through this book.  Her marriage was simply an agreement between two people, there was no love.  She seems to make mistake after mistake, bad decision after bad decision and you want so bad to make her 'see' what she should be doing.  The history woven in makes the book more interesting.  The overall theme of you can't control everything and you have to let go spoke to me.
I rate this one a 4/5.  A wonderful conclusion to this trilogy.
