Retribution is a work of thrilling lesbian romance fiction penned by author Susanne M. Beck. Forming the second novel in the Ice & Angel series, after Redemption, we meet our central couple shortly after the events of the first novel have finished. After meeting at the notorious women’s prison known as The Bog, we now find Angel fleeing alongside her fugitive partner Ice rather than be without her in the big wide world. Ice, for her part, has plenty of problems, not least of which is her pursuit by a Mexican cartel, and a man who is determined to frame her and return her to prison. Together, this feisty pair of ex-cons might just have a chance at true freedom in the future, if they can survive to reach it.

Written for mature audiences due to its crime references and sexual situations, this excellent romance novel encompasses really engaging criminal plot elements alongside a powerful central couple who really will stop at nothing to maintain their freedom and their relationship. Author Susanne M. Beck works with character beautifully to create flawed but totally likable heroines, particularly Ice in the case of this novel, whose pressured fugitive life is palpable and heartfelt on every page. The plot and relationship story arcs work side by side with equal footing to make the novel feel fully rounded, and the twists and turns that the women are thrown are both surprising but also realistic and dangerous. Overall, Retribution is a highly engaging novel that fans of LGBTQ+ romance and suspense thriller fiction are certain to adore.
