THE STORY: Griffin Stone, Duke of Rotherham is coming to his country home in search of a traitor when a woman runs through the woods and is hit by his carriage. The woman is unconscious but has been obviously mistreated. When she awakes, she doesn't have any memory of who she is or what happened to her. The two go on a search to discover her true identity (Lady Beatrix Stanton) and to solve the mystery of what happened to her.
OPINION: I liked the premise of this story very much. There was great tension between the characters because of Bea's amnesia. In addition, Griffin has much baggage as a result of his unhappy marriage. That created a great amount of sexual tension between the two main characters.
There is also a very interesting mystery surround what happened to Bea and how that might or might not be connected with Griffin's mission.
Unfortunately, I felt that this book was not as sexy or hot as previous books in the series and thus was somewhat disappointed by the romance. The book felt a bit incomplete as a result.
WORTH MENTIONING: There is only one incomplete sex scene between the couple making this book less hot than others in the series.
FINAL DECISION: I liked the story and the relationship between Griffin and Bea, but I kept wishing for more heat between the couple.
CONNECTED BOOKS: GRIFFIN STONE is the fifth book in the Dangerous Dukes series. It can be read as a standalone without missing anything.
STAR RATING: I give this book 3.75 stars.
