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.

Written Review:
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 jail for all of the things he has done.

When he finds a letter about his Father he tries to get information and when he can't he turns to Dario Andretti, which is a BAD freaking idea. The Lucchesi's and Andretti's have been at war with each other for a long time and Dario wants to use Nick to get back at Enrico for killing his father. When Nick goes to the Andretti household he runs into Delfina (Dario's daughter) and she tries to tell him to leave... but he misunderstands and doesn't listen. Nick really doesn't know what he has gotten himself into until it is too late... he gets himself into a WORLD of trouble and it is great seeing how he figures things out, and begins to see that his Father isn't actually the bad guy he thought he was.

He also starts to have a thing for Delfina which he is too damn stubborn to admit... their encounters with eat other are HOT HOT HOT! You will love them, they are both stubborn and it makes for an interesting relationship between the two haha.

Dana has written another wonderful story filled with action, love, forgiveness, and some awful hot steamy scenes! This story was beautifully written and I hope you pick it up and read it!
