Be swept away by the stirring romance and unforgettable adventure of Alaina Claiborne, MK McClintock's first British Agent novel. 
Book One of the British Agent Novels
Alaina Claiborne

How far would you go to avenge your family and save the one you love?

In nineteenth-century England, Alaina Claiborne had a loving family, a cherished friend, and devoted servants. She spent her days riding across the grassy hills of the English countryside, joyful and at peace.

Then tragedy strikes and her world is forever changed. Searching for those responsible is her only focus . . . until she meets Tristan.

Tristan Sheffield, a man of many talents, searches out those who don't want to be found. His past is filled with secrets and deeds he would rather leave deeply buried. However, when his life unexpectedly entwines with Alaina's, he soon discovers they share more than a mutual desire to catch a murderer.

On their hunt for a man driven by greed, Tristan and Alaina find that love is the greatest weapon against evil, and they'll stop at nothing to survive.

Experience romance, adventure, and mystery with the British Agents in Victorian England.
My Thoughts:

This book is an easy and cozy murder/mystery that brings two people together due to similar tragic events in their lives.

Of course, one is a secret agent and Alaina's parents were also agents. They were all ambushed one day and her good friend, Braden threw Alaina out of the way and she was saved by landing in some bushes.

The people responsible for this ambush and murder will surprise you as well as it did Alaina.

One good thing that comes out of this tragic story is that she gets a new neighbor and friend who buys the property adjoining hers in England.

As I said earlier, this is a great murder/mystery book and it is not gory or graphic, so you shouldn't have any problems reading this book if you are not a fan of horror murder/mysteries.

Happy Reading!
