The British Agent Series


Victorian-Era Romantic Mysteries

"Ms. McClintock succeeds in masterfully weaving both genres meticulously together until mystery lovers are sold on romance and romance lovers love the mystery!"

~InD'Tale Magazine


Three men willing to risk life and duty for honor.

Three women willing to risk everything for love and family.

The British Agents represent justice, duty, honor, love, and family, which is a lot to live up to for anyone. They are far from perfect, which is one of the many things I love about them. From England, Scotland, and Ireland, the agents and the women they love embark on exciting adventures to save those closest to them. Although a series, each book is written as a stand-alone title.

British Agent Character Guide

Keeping track of characters in a long-running series can be a challenge, which is why I have character guides on this website. I hope they help whenever you have a question about where a character falls in the series. While each hero and heroine have their own stories, many of the other characters are mentioned or make an appearance in each book. Not all minor characters are listed. This guide will be updated whenever a relevant new character and/or story is introduced to the series.
