The Duchess

Steel, Danielle, 1948-2017
Books, Manuscripts
Angelique Latham has grown up at magnificent Belgrave Castle under the loving tutelage of her father, the Duke of Westerfield, after the death of her aristocratic French mother. At 18 she is her father's closest, most trusted child, schooled in managing their grand estate. But when he dies, her half-brothers brutally turn her out, denying her very existence. Angelique has a keen mind, remarkable beauty and an envelope of money her father pressed upon her. To survive, she will need all her resources - and one bold stroke of fortune. Unable to secure employment without references or connections, Angelique desperately makes her way to Paris, where she rescues a young woman fleeing an abusive madam - and suddenly sees a possibility: open an elegant house of pleasure that will protect its women and serve only the best clients.
