Review of Adella’s Enemy (Steam! Romance and Rails Series) by Jacqui Nelson

The War Between the States ended five years ago, but she still pursues her enemy…

Rebel spy turned government rabble rouser Adella Willows receives her mission straight from a Washington senator—play havoc with the Katy Railroad and derail its bid to win the race. The senator craves wealth. Adella craves revenge against the man responsible for her brother’s death. But her plans crumble into chaos when she enters a battle of wits with the railroad’s foreman.

An ocean separates him from his failures in Ireland, but he’s still haunted by those who died…

Seasoned railroad foreman Cormac McGrady’s sole desire is keeping his workmen safe and employed, which means keeping the Katy ahead of its rivals. But the beautiful spy bedeviling his railroad needs protecting as well. Cormac must choose between winning the race and winning Adella’s heart, while Adella must choose whether she lives for revenge or dies for love.

This novella is part of the Passion’s Prize anthology and the Steam! Romance and Rails series. It can be read on its own or as part of the anthology.



My thoughts:

Adella is a wonderful woman who protects her family at all cost.  She vows to get revenges on the persons who are responsible for her brothers death. Information comes to her through a Senator that Levi Parsons, the owner of the Railroad  is the one to go after.

Cormac is the Forman for the railroad who comes across as an honest man.  When he sees Adella who is trying to get herself killed all he wants to do is protect her.

She tries to cause as much trouble as she can for the railroad to stop progress and Cormac is trying his best to keep her out of trouble and keep the men working.

The author does a wonderful job with the characters and setting.  The reader will be turning the pages as quickly as they can to find out what will happen with these two.  You will fall in love with everyone and laugh at times as well.  A great book for anyone.
