Review: The Railroad Baroness by Jayne Douglas

The Railroad Baroness by Jayne Douglas

Publisher: Siren-Bookstrand Publishing
Genre: Menage Romance

Heat Rating: 2



Daughter of a railroad baron, widow of a war hero, fiercely independent Lillian Worthington Cabot is a lady to her fingertips. When her father falls ill before a crucial business gathering, Lillian doesn't hesitate to leave Boston for the end of the line to act as his emissary.

Correspondent Charles Lowell Adams and photographer Conn Maguire chronicled the war together, forging an unlikely friendship between Boston Brahmin and Irish brawler. Now working for the Great Western Rail Company, the men are tasked with recording history as the railroad pushes ever westward.
The luscious widow is everything they desire: Charles's sweet Lilly and Conn's fiery Delilah, a woman they can love as one.

But a traitor is stalking the camp. Lillian and her men must fight through the deadly sabotage and deception to find the villain before he destroys the railroad – and Lillian with it.

Ashira Datya’s Review

The Railroad Baroness is a story of intrigue and new experiences. Lillian is the daughter of a wealthy man from Boston who owns the Great Western Rail Company. When he falls very ill, Lillian agrees to go oversee the expansion of the railroad to the west.

Already at the site of the expansion, where the workmen were planning to blow tunnels into the mountains, is Charles Lowell Adams, a childhood friend of Lillian's, and the writer in charge of logging the events of the work being done. There’s also Conn Maguire, a photographer in charge of photographing things that were happening to and around the work site.

Lillian, reunited with her childhood friend, is introduced by Charles to Conn and the three of them form quite the relationship that is sizzling hot. Despite the reoccurring accidents and other acts of sabotage, Lillian is determined not to disappoint her father and press on with the continuation of the railroad.

I give The Railroad Baroness three Tea Cups, it was well written and well thought out and I give it a heat score of a two. I enjoyed the book and I think others will as well.

3 Tea Cups!
