Malavita (Blood and Honor Prequel) by Dana Delamar

Praise for Malavita

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

"...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

What's it about?

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?

A second divorce and a new baby wasn’t the vision Alison Hayes had for her future. Now a single mother with two young boys, she wants to focus on her kids and what’s left of her stagnant career.
When Detective Johnny Rhay Bennett breezes into her life with his country-boy accent, she wants to run. She doesn’t need another man in her life, or another reason to make people talk. But when her worst nightmare becomes a reality, Johnny is the only person who can pull Ali out of her despair, forcing her to stay strong and not give up hope of finding her missing child. 

Who falls in love after a one-night stand? Johnny Rhay doesn’t believe it’s possible until it happens to him. With Nashville in his rear-view mirror, he’s determined to convince Alison she loves him too, even if it means moving to the West Coast.

Ali’s not easy, and she’s living on just this side of bitter after her divorce, but Johnny doesn’t care. He’s up for the challenge. At least, he believes he’s up for it until baby Micah is stolen right out from under his nose. Now Johnny has to keep it together and get that sweet little boy home safe before his dreams of having a family vanish too.


Memoirs of Love, Family, the Internet, and Obsession ~ 

Nicky's life had changed incredibly since she met Brett. Handsome, athletic, sexy, and simply amazing, he was the man of her dreams. After a whirlwind romance, adventures, and an incredible wedding, Nicky's life was finally on her own terms. She had overcome the harsh strictness of an oppressive upbringing and was on the road to truly knowing herself. Passion, sex, fun, love, marriage, and family, life was good UNTIL Brett's casual interest in pornography becomes an obsession that affects their life.

The book to read, deals with the addiction of our time. Often hidden, denied, and rarely discussed, porn addiction affects many couples today.

How does a woman deal with this issue? Is it her fault? What will people say? Who can she talk to? What should she do? What would you do?

Portrait of Our Marriage is a fictional memoir that was inspired by an episode from The Oprah Winfrey Show, dreams, research, and very personal information shared by 8 women who were living with and facing this issue. 

A roller coaster ride of emotions. A blatantly realistic read of what goes on behind closed doors.

Jalal flees again. He’s nearing the point of no return when the young and feisty Renee blocks his retreat and challenges him to finally face the truth about what he’s trying to outrun.
