Reckoning: A Mafia Romance (Blood and Honor, #4)

Blood and Honor

Book 4
Dana Delamar

"I burned Thanksgiving dinner because I couldn't stop reading this book! Once again, Dana Delamar has delivered gold! I have waited impatiently for this 4th book in the series to be released. It was so worth it! I gobbled it up the day it was released.....I went back a second time because I was afraid that I missed something. Just as good the second time. The characters are developed, honest, complex and HOT!!" - Amy, Amazon reviewer

"5 stars = I freaking LOVED this book!!!... The final showdown - The Reckoning - was unreal and full of surprises I wasn't expecting. I loved the ending that Delamar crafted, even if it appears to be the series end as well. While it does read as though Reckoning is the final book in the Blood and Honor series, I would not be disappointed to see additional installments written. Nope, not one bit. I have loved this series from the first novella, Malavita, to this one and I'm not ready to say goodbye." -- Angela S Goodrich, Crystal's Many Reviewers blog

"I have been along for this ride since the beginning and all I can say is WOW!!!... Ruggero and Loredana's love scenes make the reader reach for a glass or water and beg to trade places with her.... Dana pulled me into this before unknown world of the MOB with her first book, Revenge and she has kept me there. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to be along for the ride and see these characters grow and make tough decisions and fight for what THEY believe in and for love that may or may not want to be loved. You cannot go wrong with Reckoning, well, only if you don't dive in and hold on tight." -- MommanCali, Amazon reviewer

A brutal hitman. A fervent anti-Mafia judge. A far-ranging conspiracy…

Everyone thinks Ruggero Vela is just an assassin, a cold-hearted thug. But a passionate heart beats underneath his granite exterior. When he finally meets the woman of his dreams, she turns out to be Loredana Montisi, a fervent anti-Mafia judge hell-bent on prosecuting his Mafia don boss. The judge has no idea she's being used as a pawn by much darker forces with a truly frightening agenda. 

With enemies closing in on every side, Ruggero walks a dangerous tightrope--can he win Loredana's heart and her help, or will he lose her and the only family he knows?

Malavita (Prequel) 


He moved closer again, and this time Loredana jumped away, but her back hit the wall. Trapped. Blood pounded in her ears, and his smile widened. He placed one hand on the wall beside her head and leaned in, just centimeters from her. He smelled of espresso, cigarettes, and a light cologne. Something lemony. "I wasn't going to hurt you. I've never hurt a woman, and I’m not about to start."

"Then what are you doing?"

"Reassuring you."

"I thought you didn’t do that."

He chuckled, low and deep, and his other hand met the wall on the other side of her head. He had her caged in quite effectively, but his gaze was what held her captive. She struggled not to squirm, to meet his eyes, to keep him from knowing how desperately she wanted to run.

He leaned in, his voice dropping, his words a whisper. "I want you to remember how you're feeling now: heart beating fast, every cell excruciatingly alert, ready to jump out of your skin. Remember this, and don’t forget. You are in danger, Loredana Montisi, and remembering that is what's going to keep you alive."
