Product Description

*** Semi-finalist in The Kindle Book Review's 2013 Best Indie Book Awards! ***

"The suspense keeps the pages moving quickly in book two of the Blood and Honor series. There are numerous characters, but Delamar does a wonderful job of incorporating them so that readers keep abreast of the story. A fast pace, credible characters and a complex plot guarantee hours of entertainment."
-- RT Book Reviews, 4 stars

"Retribution was great... oh so damn great. So this is the second book in the Blood and Honor series and I loved it even better than the first one.... Another wonderful story filled with action, love, forgiveness, and some awfully hot steamy scenes! This story was beautifully written and I hope you pick it up and read it!"
-- Reading on the Wild Side blog, 4.5 stars

"You are kept on the edge of your seat until the very last page, just like at the end of "Revenge", "Retribution" has a teaser for the next novel that makes me excited to read the next novel. If you liked "Revenge" you will love "Retribution"; this is easily a stand alone novel; I'm just glad that there is more to come in this series."
-- Steph's Book Retreat blog, 4.5 stars

An Interpol agent playing a dangerous game. A Mafia princess. A man determined to exact retribution...

Nick Clarkston, a young Interpol agent, threatens to undo the fragile peace between the Lucchesi and Andretti families when he tries to take down the Mafia don father who abandoned him. He allies with his father's sworn enemy, a mobster both devious and ruthless. The mobster's alluring daughter helps Nick negotiate the murky criminal underworld, but he soon learns she's using him. Trapped, and with nowhere to turn, Nick makes a tragic mistake that plunges him further into danger.

Delfina Andretti appears to be the typical Mafia princess--but this princess wants out. Delfina dreams of being a fashion designer, and hooking up with Nick is her ticket out of an arranged marriage. Her feelings for Nick are genuine, but he's leery of her. Even worse, his heedless drive for justice threatens to get them both killed and to put everyone Delfina loves behind bars--unless she and Nick can forge a new future for their warring families.

Excerpt:

"Leave me alone," Delfina tossed over her shoulder, turning her head to give her father one last glare. She sailed off the last step into the foyer and plowed into a hard body. A hard body that smelled delicious, sexy. Two strong hands gripped her arms to keep her from falling.

She gawked at a face that was eerily familiar. The young man standing in front of her wasn't Enrico Lucchesi--his wavy, tousled hair was a rich chestnut, not onyx, and his eyes were mossy green, not chocolate. But the strong blade of his nose, the high prominent cheekbones, and the full, generous mouth were all Lucchesi. "Who are you?" she blurted.

"Nick Clarkston," he answered, his accent British, upper crust. "Who are you?"

"My daughter, Delfina," her father said from behind her. His hands came to rest on her shoulders, and Nick abruptly released her and stepped away.

Nick glanced from her to her father. "Is everything all right?" he asked.

"Not really," she said. Could he be...? But if he was, what was he doing here, in her father's house?

WOW after reading book 1 of this series I wasn't sure how Dana would top it.... I am almost speachless after reading 'Retribution' book 2 in the "Blood & Honor" series, I do implore you to definitely read the prequel & book 1 before you read this. I have read book 1 but haven't read the prequel as yet, but it's there waiting for the first possible chance.

'Retribution' starts a week or so after 'Revenge' finishes & within the first chapter I was drawn inside the world that is 'Ndrangheta Mafiso, more particular the Andretti & Lucchesi fanctions. The details & descriptions throughout the book made it feel like I had a movie showing in my head, they were that thorough. I truly felt like I was inside the book.

The twists & turns in this book were as compelling as they were in book 1. After reading 'Retribution' I'm so glad I came across the Blood & Honor series, it's not only compelling, but magical with so much detail, love, honor, pain, passion...... the list goes on. Thank you Dana, bring on book 3 & the rest of the series.

Retribution (Blood & Honor #2)
By: Dana Delamar
5/5 stars

When Enrico Lucchesi was sent to boarding school in England, at age 16, after the murder of his mother and brothers, he met a woman and fathered a son out of wedlock. But due to the peace agreement between the Lucchesi family and the Andretti family, he had to return to Italy and marry Antonella Andretti, forsaking his son, Nick and Nick’s mother. If any of the mafia found out he’d broken the peace accord by having a son, then he, his father, and his son would have all been murdered. He was heartbroken over it, but Nick’s heart hardened with abandonment.

Nick Clarkston became an Interpol agent who wanted retribution against the father who let him down and abandoned him and his mother when he was just a boy. Nick only saw Enrico a few times and only spoke to him on the phone a couple times after Enrico left them in England. Nick now works for Interpol and believes that he can best get his revenge by investigating his dad as a Mafioso and putting him in jail. Unfortunately, Nick goes to Dario Andretti, Enrico’s former brother-in-law, to help him with his case against his father.

Delfina Andretti is the daughter of Dario & Illaria Andretti and the older sister to Cristoforo. The only life she knows is the mafia life, and it is a life that she wants to escape. She doesn’t want to be used as a pawn in an arranged marriage to strengthen her father’s cosca. Delfi’s dream is to pursue a career in fashion and to become a designer in her own right and not just on her family name or her father’s money. Nick may be her ticket out of the life. But when she learns of his true plans, she doesn’t know if she can help him put her family in jail because they will also go down if he takes down Enrico. Delfina also tries to help Nick see past his young hurt and see his father through adult eyes.

I absolutely loved this book and was intrigued with future stories. This is the second time that I’ve read this book and have read both of the next two. I love Dana Delamar’s story telling and attention to detail. Her books are passionate & flawless.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heart palpitations all the way! 1 August 2012
By Liz Cabrejos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Suspense, suspense, suspense! Absolutely loved this book. Book 1 was so enjoyable I truly did not expect book 2 to live up to those expectations. It did, and surpassed them. I absolutely adored Delfina from the beginning, your "Principessa". All she wants is to be normal, to not be a mafia princess & make it as a fashion designer. Nick, the illegitimate son of Enrico Luchessi, who wants nothing but revenge on his dad for abandoning him as a child. What he doesn't know is that Enrico did it to protect him, to keep him far away from the Ndrangheta, which Nick falls right into. You struggle with Nick as he tries to deal with his mums death, abandoned by his dad, and figuring out his feelings for Delfi. Wonderful love story, sexy, sultry, seductive & heartwarming . The suspense on the last couple of chapters is so intense my blood pressure truly shot through the roof & gave me plenty of heart palpitations. You absolutely want to read this book, another amazing job by this author. I was hoping book 3 would be about Antonio and I am so happy it is. Great job, can't wait for the next one.

Retribution
What a powerful journey. Enrico’s son works for Interpol and is out for revenge against his father. Is dream is to take down the mafia families including his father. He lands in the lap of Enrico’s enemy will he ever make it out alive? After his mother’s death he cannot love anyone.
The Russians are coming in and trying to take over. Can the two families stop the dealings behind their back or will s*** hit the fan and all-out war start?
This series is action packed to the very end. Very well written and plotted and very easy to follow. I have indeed found a new Author.

Antonio has many surprises dropped in his lap; can he handle them and the men out to destroy him? An old love happens back into his life with a life changing secret; can he love and forgive her? Will Enrico allow him to have her if he does? Seems like Antonio is always being passed by when it comes to being Enrico’s son and the one to truly inherit all can that ever change or will the bond Enrico makes with his nephew keep Antonio just on the edge.

4.0 out of 5 stars Liked the book, but....... 16 February 2013
By Hedge Witch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Liked the book. However I found Nicholas's role somewhat unbelievable. With his psychological problems how did he ever make it into the secret service? The secret service would have definitely caught his psychological problems during his initial interview and testing to join the organization. He definitely would not have made it into the police force but to be part of an organization that is on par with the FBI, CIA, MI5, military, KGB, Mossad and other counterintelligence agencies is testing the readers minds ability to believe. Am I harsh? Yes, because Nicholas does an disservice to all members of the secret service and all law enforcement. First rule he should have learned is learn about your target and then learn more about your targets enemies. And then when you are finished with that investigate the law enforcement in the area. I am quite sure that the Secret Service had enough funds so he could do a thorough investigation. He did nothing. No investigation. Nothing. Nevertheless, I did enjoy the book and I wanted to see how the author was going to solve Nicholas's dilemna which quite frankly he caused and willingly walked into but curiousity kept me reading. The is a phrase from the Godfather...Keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer. Anyone involved in the type of work that the Secret Service does knows this rule by hard or they will end it compromised or killed. He was also extremely naive. EXTREMELY NAIVE. Another quote that Nicholas should have learned...It's not personal its just business. In the first book I disliked Kate with a passion but in this book I liked her alot. Kudos to the author for developing her character to be more realistic after all she is married to the Mafia. I wait impatiently for the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC 8 August 2012
By 2AMomma - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Some novels do not live up to my expectations, especially ones that are in a series, this novel surpassed my expectations. Dana once again brings the world of the Italian Mafia to life, in this her followup novel to "Revenge". The twists and turns in this novel were not only compelling and kept the story going at a great pace that it kept me reading and wanting more as the pages flew by.

Quick Recap ~ Nick Clarkson (Lucchesi) [the illegitimate son of Enrico Lucchesi the capo of the Lucchesi family] is thrown into a world that he knows very little about when he receives a letter telling hom who is father 'is'. As far as Nick is concerned his father abandoned him and wants nothing to do with him; working for Interpol, Nick checks out his 'father' and comes up blank, taking a mysterious man up on his offer to learn about his father, Nick strikes a deal with the Andretti capo, his father's rivals. Add in the beautiful Delfina Andretti, who wants to get out from under her father's influence and not be thought of as a 'mafia princess'. These two strangers navigate the fine line of love, honor, passion, trust and betrayal all the way to the end.

Unlike the previous novel, there is not as much violence, no one ends up getting something in the mail or via 'special delivery', well...... 'Retribution' is as full of passion and Nick and Delfina try to make her 'first time' memorable, only to be stopped and caught in compromising positions; I began to route for them each time they were alone and I thought they would finally make love, only to be interrupted by one thing or another; Dana keeps her reader waiting for that special moment between the characters, as they both deal with their families, work, what is expected and what they actually want, as well as the looming threat of the Russian Mafia seeking revenge and wanting both families dead.

You are kept on the edge of your seat until the very last page, just like at the end of "Revenge", "Retribution" has a teaser for the next novel that makes me excited to read the next novel. If you liked "Revenge" you will love "Retribution"; this is easily a stand alone novel; I'm just glad that there is more to come in this series.
