Book Description

7 Jun 2013 Blood and Honor
A son determined to avenge his family. A daughter desperate for peace. Two fathers intent on destruction…
Enrico Lucchesi never wanted anything to do with the Mafia. But when his brothers were murdered, he accepted that he would someday be the next don. However, he doesn’t accept that he must marry the daughter of the man who killed them. Enrico will never trust an Andretti, never mind love one. The Andrettis are up to something with their so-called “truce”—and Enrico must avenge his siblings. But will his dark secret spell the end of his vengeance—and possibly the Lucchesis?
After Antonella Andretti’s father tries to destroy the Lucchesis, she persuades him that an alliance—achieved by her marriage to Enrico, the “golden boy” she’s loved from afar—would be in everyone’s best interests. As her wedding day approaches, people close to her father start dying, and her fiancé’s behavior is suspect. When she learns Enrico’s true feelings about her—and what her father’s actual plans are—will Antonella damn their families to eternal war, or will she broker a peace that might destroy her heart?

5.0 out of 5 stars 4.5 Stars 20 Jun 2013
By MJ
Format:Kindle Edition
Malavita is the prequel to the `Blood and Honor' Series and Follows Enrico's early life from the death of his mother and brothers, to his marriage to Antonella Andretti. It was interesting to have the background to this story in such detail. We were told certain things in Revenge (book 1) and Retribution (book 2) but we were only given the out line information that we needed to understand those books. We now get to taste Enrico's pain first hand and can fully understand his need for revenge, and his hatred for the Andretti's. The day his family were killed, his life changed forever, he was forced to join the family business, which he never wanted, and his union with Antonella was decided for him.

Personally I would have liked to have seen more of Enrico's time with Veronica; Nico's Mother. It would have been nice to actually see how they were with each other, if they were truly in love etc. I felt sorry for him having to leave his son but had no emotion where Veronica was concerned because I didn't manage to connect with her or feel for her in any way. Meeting Enrico as a young man allowed me to see him as a more rounded character. My image of him in `Revenge' when Kate went to him for help was totally different to the one I have of him now and it has made me want to re-read the other books with this new, somehow tougher Enrico in my head.

I just love Dana's writing, the plot is very well thought out, fast paced and full of action, and as I've said before with her work, every word is relevant. The story has everything, romance, revenge, `blood', `honor', suspense, action, you name it this book covers it. Dana Delamar is definitely an author to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, but as blood on a rose 6 Mar 2014
By Dale
Format:Kindle Edition
This tale of vengeance tinged with romantic suspense surprised me with its intensity. Dana Delamar presents a story of a man driven by grief to embrace a life he tried to avoid, and a young woman who must overcome her fears if she is to achieve a peace that seems destined to elude their warring families. A novel of love and the burdens of honor set in a reality of ruthless violence, Malavita masterfully depicts characters challenged with tracing a path obscured by passions, pain and rage, and at its end leaves one wondering what lies ahead.

The author used words to paint her story as brush strokes from an artist. Brava, signora.

4.0 out of 5 stars SALIVATING FOR MORE MALIVITA 23 July 2013
By Yankeelin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Malavita is fairly short book that allows you to finish it in one night, but be prepared for little to no sleep!
Evidently it is a prequel to a series i have yet to read but as a stand alone it is top notch. Love, murder, mafia family, fast-paced, and hooked from page one- can i say more? Sure. But read it for yourself and you'll be begging for more....an awesome writer has chosen an awesome subject to delve into and characters that come alive on a printed page.
I gave it 4 stars because there is no 4.5 option...

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting & Steamy Prequel to 'Revenge' & 'Retribution' 16 July 2013
By MommanCali - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
**DISCLAIMER** I was provided a copy in exchange for an honest review.

Once again, Dana has drawn her reader into the world of the Mafia, this time, she transports her reader to the very beginning, when Enrico and Antonia meet and fall in love. In this much anticipated prequel, Dana does NOT let her reader down.

Watching how Toni and Rico go from basically being enemies to eventually falling in love, the reader understands more about Rico and why he does what he does in "Revenge" and "Retribution", at the same time, you also want them fall in each other's arms and ignore their families strife and just do what THEY think is best and stop playing around. The love scenes are as intense as the action scenes as they leave the reader on the edge of their seat and wanting more. Unlike in some novellas in this genre, the love scenes and action don't feel forced or out of place, they are natural and realistic.

With a delicate undercurrent of what happens in the following novels, I was compelled to read late into the night finishing, `Malavita'.

Dana grabs her reader's attention and doesn't let go until the very last page; and even then, she leaves you wanting to read `Revenge" (if you haven't already - shame shame shame on you... go READ it) and the follow up, "Retribution".

Once again, Dana has captured my heart and attention with her larger than life Mafioso characters and brings them to a whole new level and depth in her much anticipated prequel.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great romantic suspense 18 July 2013
By A. Clark - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
In 1982 Enrico Lucchesi's mother and two brothers are murdered by an order from Carlo Andretti. A couple of years later Enrico has returned to Italy from England to fulfill a marriage contract. In order to end the feud between the Lucchesi's and the Andretti's he must marry Antonella (Toni) Andretti.

The book kept me reading and turning each page to find out what happens next. Fast paced with action, suspense and romance. With secrets, lies, betrayals, murder and family feuds. A great author who kept me wanting for more between the two families. Can't wait to read the other books in this series that's sure to be as great as this book was.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo...Fantastic Read! 25 Jun 2013
By Read On - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Malavita is a an fantastic read. I love this criminal mafia world that Dana Delamar has created. I always wanted to know more about Enrico's past with his first wife Toni and this prequel did not disappoint. The writing is superb, fast paced, with lot's of action. You'll be taken back to Enrico's youth where he learns as young man what being part of the mafia family really means... having true honor, seeking revenge for your family, learning to trust & taking a chance on falling in love...with the enemies daughter. Enrico & Toni's story pulled me right in from the beginning and I was entertained & engaged right to the end. I recommend the Blood & Honor series as a must read! Job well done!
