I have read both Revenge and now Retribution, I loved them both! I had a hard time putting them both down! I anxiously awaiting the next book in the series! Not only were both of these books romantic but so action packed I turned page after page because I could wait to see what was going to happen next! I would highly recommend both of these books to anyone! Both are great reads!

Retribution is book 2 in the Blood and Honor series and is an excellent read. This book concentrates on Nick, Enrico Luchessi’s illegitimate son. Working for Interpol, Nick goes in search of his father with the intention of bringing him to justice. Nick blames Enrico for his mothers death and is intent on revenge. As he gets more involved with the Andretti family, his fathers adversaries, Nick realises not everything is black and white, there are some grey areas and maybe his father isn’t the ma

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.

I did a video review for Retribution, if you would like to watch it and see what I think CLICK HERE.

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. In this book you are introduced to the illegitimate son of Enrico Lucchesi, Nick Clarkson. When Nick was little his father left him for good reasons, but Nick doesn't see it like that at all. Nick hates his Father or so he thinks and wants to put him in

Couldn't put it down! There were a lot of twists and turns which were quite believeable. This is a sequel to the first book Revenge and as much as I liked the first book, this one is much better. But don't worry if you haven't read the first book as this one gives the history between the opposing families without repeating itself too much.

The story centres around Nick and Delfina, the children of two Mafia Dons who are sworn enemies. I don't know how factual it was, but the idea that arranged ma

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 t ...more

Hot Romance and Blood Curdling Action won’t let you put this book down!

Dana Delamar’s second book in the Blood and Honor series, Retribution, is even better than the first… and I loved Revenge. Hot steamy romance and blood curdling action won’t let you put this book down. Expecting this story to continue from the point of view of the Luchessi mob family, the author surprised me with a new twist.

Yes! Sooo much better than Revenge, Nick is dashing and Delfina is adorable....their chemistry was off the charts and holy cow with those wicked Andrettis!!!! Can the next generation usher in some kind of peace? I don't know....I guess I have to wait for the next one! Lol! Rico still has a strong presence in this book, since Nick is his son, but Kate not so much, thank you! The author relates some of the back story on the families which is nice for people just reading the series but doesn't over ...more

Good Mafia book

The author does what a lot of others do not. Portrays the Mafia in a way that they should be. And chose a lesser known Italian Mafia. You see the good, bad and ugly parts. You see more than just two sides, but the minds of all players. This is the way to see all the moving parts even though the characters never see what's coming.

I highly recommend this Series to all Mafia romance fans.

Once again, Delamar had no problem sucking me back into the world of the Luchessis, the Andrettis, and the rest of the Italian ’Ndrangheta. But she really amped up the stakes and the action in Dario’s personal vendetta against Enrico by luring Enrico’s illegitimate son, Nick, to Italy. And we learn that Nick’s little boy lost mentality causes him to fall right into Dario’s trap – again and again and again. Seriously, for an Interpol agent, Nick really isn’t that savvy when it comes to dealing wi ...more

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 'Ndrangh

Great book 2

I really enjoyed this book. Loved how it picked up just days after the first book ended. I read a lot of mafia romance books. This series so far is in my top 10. The men in these books are not portrayed as ruthless and cruel except in the bedroom with their woman. The love for their families and sometimes guilt in the things they must do, helps bringing these characters to life.

Book two on the Lucchesi/Andretti family saga which is really good. So, if you get a chance, check out the series from the beginning and you won’t be disappointed. Lots of fast paced, action with thrills and chills, with a lot of great characters and even the villainous ones held you attention. And you might even learn a word or two of Italian.

Thrilling,Heartbreaking

5 stars If you don't cry when Nico finally realizes the love his father has for him you have no soul.Having said that I still haven't figured out The connection between Enrico has for Antonio??..? This is one of those books that keeps you guessing.

Retribution is the second book in a series, and while the story is fast-paced with plenty of action, it will be lost on new readers.

Read full review in the 2012 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine.
