GIVEAWAY: St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop March 14-21



St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop
March 14-21


Hi everyone! Welcome to the St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop! In addition to the Grand Prize pack below, which has $80 of gift cards plus ebooks, audio books and more, each stop on the blog tour is running a giveaway as well. That's 40 chances to win! Today I'm giving away a $5 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble - winner's choice!

I write very steamy, gritty, dark Mafia romance. The "Blood and Honor" series is about two warring Mafia families, the Lucchesis and the Andrettis. This crime family saga starts with a prequel (Malavita) set twenty-eight years in the past that details the origins of a feud that continues in the present with the books RevengeRetribution, and the latest release, Redemption. The final book, Reckoning, is slated for release in early 2015. 

Each book features a hero and heroine who face impossible odds and must fight for their love--and their very lives--within the murky underworld of the Italian Mob. 

Be warned--these are dark, sexy, violent books that are definitely not for the faint of heart! If they were movies, they'd be rated R. Think "The Godfather" meets "Romeo & Juliet." (The prequel, Malavita, which is free, is more PG-13 than the rest of the series.) 


Here's what readers are saying about the series: 


“Plenty of sexy scenes, drama, action, adventure, suspense, blood, love, friendship, just a fantastic read. Highly recommended, wish I could give it more than 5 stars, this is a perfect TEN!”

“I cannot get enough of a good Mafia story. I think those Italian boys are so cute in leather. Ahem. Sorry, off-topic. Malavita is tragic love story with blood and bullets. Really, what more could anyone want? Oh, it’s set in Italy. And it is so good. The characters are brilliant Mafia. The dialogue perfect. The only problem was it ended.”

"This series is awesome!!! If this series was ever made into a movie it would put the Godfather to shame! I am always pulled into the lives that Dana creates in her books. Heart beating so fast it is like I am part of the story line!!! If you are looking for fantastic writing style and being pulled into a story this is it!! I VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. I WANT TO GIVE IT MORE THAN 5 STARS."

REVENGE (Blood and Honor, #1)


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

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. 


*** Revenge was a double-finalist in the 2013 Booksellers Best Awards! ***

Excerpt: 

Enrico raised a hand in greeting to Kate, and she returned his wave and started descending the steps. She headed straight for him, her auburn hair gleaming in the sun, a few strands of it blowing across her pale cheek and into her green eyes. With a delicate hand, she brushed the hair out of her face. Enrico’s fingers twitched with the desire to touch her cheek like that, to feel the slide of her silky hair. A small, almost secretive smile crossed her features, and he swallowed hard. Dio mio. He felt that smile down to his toes.

She stopped a couple feet from him. “Signor Lucchesi, it’s good to see you, as always.”

He bowed his head slightly. “And you, Signora Andretti.” He paused, a grin spreading across his face. “Since when did we get so formal, Kate?”

She half-turned and motioned to the doorway behind her. And that was when he noticed it—a bruise on her right cheek. Merda! Had someone hit her? Tearing his eyes off the mark, he followed her gesture. A tall, sandy-haired man, well-muscled and handsome, leaned in the doorway, his arms crossed. “My husband, Vincenzo, is here.”

Enrico’s smile receded. He looked back to Kate. “I’d like to meet him.” And if he did this to her, he’s going to pay.

Sounds awesome! Where can I get the books?
