RETRIBUTION: 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.
"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

Nick turned the music up and caught Delfina’s eye. Was it just his imagination, or had she been admiring his bare arse? “Watching me, were you?” he asked, keeping his voice pitched low.
She blushed, roses staining her cheeks. His chest felt lighter than it had in weeks. “I’m not answering that.”
He strode over to her and leaned in, forcing her to sprawl back on the bed, caged within his arms. He placed his lips near her ear. “Your blush told me everything. Every single naughty thought you were having.”
“Madonna,” she muttered and braced her hands against his chest. “You’re getting a swollen head.”
He darted his tongue out and ran it along the edge of her ear. “Most certainly.” He put a knee up on the bed and rubbed his hard length along her thigh.
She laughed and pushed against him, but he didn’t budge. “Time to get undressed,” he whispered. Her hands went to the buttons that ran down the front of the silk blouse tucked into her skirt. She played with the top one.
“Now?” she asked, her voice lilting and playful.
“Now.” He rumbled the word in her ear and she shivered. “Take it off. I want to see you. All of you.”
The prequel to the series, MALAVITA (Blood and Honor, Prequel) is available FREE at all retailers. Note that MALAVITA is more on the PG-13 side, whereas the other books in the series are all R-rated for sex, language, and violence.
