After making a wager of marriage to settle her father's gambling debts, Ella Bowen-Thorn 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. 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 holding threaten their future together once more?
I really enjoy reading historical romance book. The only think I do not like is that so many women are weak and cant really do anything on their own. When I started reading “Dealing with the Viscount” I was afraid it will be like any other book but I was wrong .The story and build-up is perfect and we have a strong female character who can take care of her and her daughter, both financially and literally. When you have great characters in a book you tend to like the book better and so is the case for me.
I wish I would be able to write a long review but pain makes it hard and I dont want to retell the story as in so many other review. I hope I will one day to be able to go back and write a longer review.
I will end it will that I really enjoyed reading this book and I really hope Clair Brett will write more stories like this, in this world because I really enjoyed it, and love this story! A really good read that I can recommend.
