Win a Kindle Paperwhite and Over 100 Prizes in the Hearts on Fire Giveaway Hop!

Welcome to the Hearts on Fire Giveaway Hop!

What sets your heart on fire? What tells you if a man is worth your energy, your devotion, your heart?

My boyfriend set my heart on fire when he wrote me a poem for our second date. What made it so special is that it wasn't a poem about how beautiful I was or anything like that. It was a poem about pursuing my dream of becoming a writer. I already liked him quite a bit, but that poem told me I had something special on my hands: a man who listens, a man who encourages me to pursue my dreams, a man who isn't just into what I look like, but who's into who I am.

Want to share that special moment when your man set your heart on fire, or when the hero of your favorite romance won his heroine's heart?
Feel free to comment below!


Now that you know what kind of man sets my heart on fire, you might want to check out my Blood and Honor romantic suspense series, which is set in Italy among the Calabrian Mafia. The series chronicles the battles--both bloody and romantic--between two warring Mafia clans. Books 1 and 2 are available now. 

Book 1: Revenge (Blood and Honor, #1)

A woman on the run. A damaged Mafia don. A rival bent on revenge...

Revenge (Blood and Honor, #1) by Dana Delamar
Kate Andretti is married to the Mob--but doesn't know it. When her husband uproots them to Italy, Kate leaves everything she knows behind. Alone in a foreign land, she finds herself locked in a battle for her life against a husband and a family who will "silence" her if she will not do as they wish. When her husband tries to kill her, she accepts the protection offered by a wealthy businessman with Mafia ties. He's not a mobster, he claims. Or is he?

Enrico Lucchesi never wanted to be a Mafia don, and now he's caught in the middle of a blood feud with the Andretti family. His decision to help Kate brings the feud between the families to a boil. When Enrico is betrayed by someone in his own family, the two of them must sort out enemies from friends--and rely on each other or die alone. The only problem? Enrico cannot reveal his identity to Kate, or she'll bolt from his protection, and he'll be duty-bound to kill her to safeguard his family's secret. 

Attacks from without and within push them both to the breaking point, and soon Enrico is forced to choose between protecting the only world he knows and saving the woman he loves. 

If you prefer printRevenge is also on Amazon US (paperback) or Amazon UK (paperback).

Book 2: Retribution (Blood and Honor, #2)

An Interpol agent playing a dangerous game. A Mafia princess desperate to escape. A man determined to exact retribution...

Retribution (Blood and Honor, #2) by Dana Delamar
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.

Today is the official release date for A Summoner's Tale by Victoria Danann! 

This is the third installment in a serial saga intended to be read in order.

Book Trailer

A secret society, a witch, a psychic, vampires, modern day knights, heroes, elves, fae, assassins from another dimension, and fairytales come together where emotions intersect. Two souls, joined by a mystical bond, separated by distance, must simultaneously struggle through pain and darkness in an ultimate confrontation with character and an ultimate struggle for life proving that true love waits patiently through lifetimes and finds courage to survive. Even in the strangest places. Even when you're least expecting it. Even when you're far, far from home.

Erotic quotient: A little steam. No menage. No BDSM.

IMPORTANT: Black Swan Books 2 and 3 are available on exclusively as single titles. However, The Order of the Black Swan COLLECTED TALES, Books 1-3 will also be released on or around Feb. 14th in e-book everywhere.  This is the story as it was intended to be read - without interruption.
