"My first foray into Clair Brett's written world was an amazing journey. My intentions were to spend a couple of days reading this new-to-me author but from the moment Devon, Lord Renwick, set foot in Scotland I was completely immersed in the story and didn't stop until "the end.An agreement, a misunderstanding, a secret, Devon's devotion to winning Ella's love and Ella's determination to keep from getting her heart broken had me running the range of emotions. Something a talented writer can accomplish. I'm honored to be one of the first readers of Ms. Brett's foray into the world of historical romance with her 5 star Dealing With the Viscount and am looking forward to see what she brings out next."

From the Back Cover
Does she dare gamble on the one man who wants her to go all in, or risk losing her most important hand yet?
After making a wager of marriage to settle her father's gambling debts, Ella Bowen-Torn Renwick escaped the husband she foolishly began to fall for and disappeared into the Scottish countryside carrying a secret. Four years later, and the owner of her own bakery, she is still not free of the demands of men when a violent and anonymous blackmailer threatens her, her livelihood...and her daughter. And then, there is him...
Viscount Renwick still mourns the wife he began to love before her untimely death--that is, until he discovers her alive and well living in Scotland. Now, Devon's face to face with the wife he thought he'd buried and the daughter he never knew existed. He'd like nothing more than to welcome Ella back into his arms, but mysterious and troubling incidents and a history with an unloving father have Ella trusting no one.
Now, he'll do anything, even make a wager he isn't sure he can win, to reclaim what he lost.
But if Renwick convinces his wife he's the husband she always dreamed of and the father their daughter deserves, will the scandalous secret the blackmailer is holing threaten their future together once more?
