Overview

Ruthless Eli Di Luca hides the torment of his past beneath a façade of iron control. No one suspects the anguish he suffers, or the reasons why he has sworn never to marry. Only blackmail could change his mind...

Beautiful young author Chloë Conte's first book zoomed to the top of the bestseller lists. Now, struggling to write her second mystery, she retreats to an isolated cottage in a private vineyard. But with his magnetic appeal and his fascinating tales of Bella Terra's violent past, Eli Di Luca proves an irresistible distraction, and Chloë finds herself falling in love with a man she hardly knows. Soon she discovers that Eli has been keeping secrets from her, and the truth will bring more than heartbreak...it will put them both in mortal danger.

When murder and peril threaten, the only way Chloe can survive is to trust the man who has betrayed her...and that's a price her stubborn heart may not be willing to pay.

    Great read!

    The Bella Terra series by Dodd has both romance and mystery. They are, of course, written with style. Marks story will make it to my book shelf this Spring. :) .... each book has about 250 - 300 pages.

    Tight story, great cast

    More about the Di Luca family and their secrets in this second of the series. The California wine country setting is an integral part of the story. The plot is fairly predictable, but you can count on Dodd to create a tight story with a great cast of characters. Now to wait for the conclusion. Where are the diamonds and the wine?

    Great Addition to the Series!

    Revenge at Bella Terra is a fast paced romantic suspense novel, the second in a series. I love the fact that Ms. Dodd has incorporated two tried and true romance concepts- secret baby and marriage of convenience-into a book you cannot put down. Eli DiLuca is in between a rock and a hard place when it comes to his family winery. He needs 4.5 million dollars and if he marries Chloe Robinson, her father, Tomasso Conti, will give it to him.
    In the typical forced marriage novel, the heroine is a shy, retiring, young thing who can't attract a man and whose father finds her a husband. Chloe is feisty, independent, and fully aware of her father's plots. She and her father have only met recently and he is old school, wanting to plan her life. Eli is closed emotionally and focused only on work. He has a conscience, which makes him hesitate to follow through on the marriage, but circumstances force his hand. The chemistry between Eli and Chloe is combustible (in more ways than one). There is just the right amount of backstory to make both characters believable. The supporting characters are fleshed out as well, so all of the interactions add to the plot moving forward rather than distracting from it.
    The first book introduced a mystery plot involving a feud between families and a missing item that seems to be a key component to the feud. In this book the mystery is unraveled a little more, but there is still enough left to keep your interest peaked. The set up for the third book made me want to read it NOW, not wait for several months. I will definitely be in line to buy it when it comes out.

    Revenge at Bella Terra is a great romantic mystery.  Christina D

    Revenge at Bella Terra is a great romantic mystery.  Christina Dodd did an excellent job bringing the characters to life.  And although it
    could be read as a stand alone I wouldn't recommend it.

    Shire

    She sniffs around. Nosing away plants and tearing bushes out by th roots. She freezes when she sees another she werewolf. She growls warning low in her throaght as a big male steps out beside the trespassing she werewolf. He stand up on hi hind legs and snarls a challenge to shire. And the she werewolf takes a threatening step forward." Im vinyl and this i my mate deoxus. And we want your pack. Vinyl snarled and leapt at shire. Shire dodged nimbly and backed up. She couldnt take on a two werewolves. Especially older more experienced ones

    Good one! Great series!

    This book was really good however it wasnt as good as secrets so i was expecting more. This is the second in the series and Eli has agreed to marry the daughter of a man to have his debts paid off after an accountant stole all the money from their wine business. Then ofcourse he falls for this girl and then has to figure out how he should handle the situation. Overall it really was a good book, just doesnt quite rate up there with the previous book. I cant wait until the next one to be released!
