One day Griffin, the Duke of Rotherham, was in his carriage when he hit a woman who ran out into the street wearing only a negligee. She lost consciousness, so he had no choice but to take her home and nurse her back to health. When she woke up, she was without her memory. Who was this strong, handsome man? More important, who was she? She was unable to come up with even her name, so Griffin began to call her Bella.
