I gave this 5 stars, since I could not give it 4 1/2; it's a book I know I'll read again.
I'm not usually the kind of person who will seek out a book that talks about the Mafia - I'm not a fan of 'stuff in boxes', etc, however, in this case, I'm very glad I took the chance and read it. The amount of research that Dana did was impressive. The way she captured the language, the way that the Mafiso works in that area, the 'c ...more
Good job on Dana's first book and I will read the other books in the series .I am looking forward to Antonia's story. ...more
But this was such a good and intense mafia thriller. So much goes on in this book and some things do get confusing like their names, titles, etc. There's too many people involved and too many Italian words I don't know even though it had a little mini dictionary in the beginning but I ain't got no time or effort to keep checking back to that page on epub its too difficult ajksdljsl.
I'm glad I had ...more

Wow. First let me tell you that I was very impressed with Dana's writing. As a self-published author this book was EXTREMELY well-written. She must have had one hell of an Editor. Also this particular book had to have required mountains of research. She went to great depths to explain a completely "fictional" story of the Italian Mafia and it was exquisite.
I really appreciated the introduction of the main characters in the b ...more
>Subject - book review - Revenge
>I received this book from the author and from Paranormal Romance and Authors that Rock. This is the first book in the Blood and Honor Series and is part of a boxed set entitled Killer Romances. The book ends this particular story, somewhat, but this is the mob, it is never over.
>Kate Andretti is married to a nephew of a mob boss, yet is unaware of this fact. She moves with her relatively new husband to Italy and begins working for an orphanage. The orphan ...more
Filled with lots of action and suspense, the plot is constantly twisting, keeping you on the edge of your seat. I loved the characters and felt sorry for Kate and Enrico. Thrust into a situation neither of them ever wanted, it is heart warming to see the way they fall in love with each other.
Enrico is still a little lost after t ...more
Journey you took me on. This is one of those books you can't put down, you want it to never end, yet you need to know what happens next. I love when you're able to get the perspectives of both main characters, and the author did an amazing job at making sure you knew & "felt" both sides of this story. Don Lucchesi, Enrico, absolutely loved his character. This man is full of honor, strength, kindness, love. He is torn by the oath he took to be the Capo of the Lu ...more
