Book Description

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?

Editorial Reviews


"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." - Jane, Lindsay and Jane's Views and Reviews blog

"From the very first page I was sucked into a world of revenge, family bonds, bloodshed, romance and I was hooked!" - PattySue, Amazon reader

"...once i got started with Malavita, I could not, would not put it down. The storyline is captivating from the beginning.... Not only do you have a fantastic love story, but the mob is involved...I felt dirty (in a good way) just reading it. Written expertly. Exciting, fun, action, suspense, love, honor, loyalty....just fantastic!!" - Liz Cabrejos, Amazon reader

4.0 out of 5 stars SALIVATING FOR MORE MALIVITA July 23, 2013
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 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...

**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 July 18, 2013
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.

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!
