The Engineer

Magic & Steam: Book One

Special Agent Gillian Hamilton is a magic caster with the Federal Bureau of Magic and Steam. His unsurpassed skills lead to Gillian being sent to Shallow Grave, Arizona to arrest a madman engineer known as Tinkerer, who’s responsible for blowing up half of Baltimore. Gillian’s handled some of the worst criminals in the Bureau’s history, but even he isn’t expecting a run-in with the country’s most infamous outlaw, Gunner the Deadly.

Gunner is also stalking the wild and lawless West in search of Tinkerer—who will stop at nothing to take control of the town’s silver mines. Neither men are willing to let the engineer hurt more innocent people, so Gillian agrees to a very temporary partnership with Gunner.

If facing illegal magic, Gatling gun contraptions, and a wild engineer in America’s frontier wasn’t enough trouble for a born and bred city boy, Gillian must also come to terms with the notion that he is rather fond of his partner. But even if they live through this adventure, Gillian fears there’s no chance for love between a special agent and outlaw.
