Order to Read the Medlov Books

Are you a Medlovian?

In what order should I read the Medlov Books?

First, thank you for your interest in the series that started the Russian Mafia Romance genre. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. The Medlov Family is a fictional look into one of the most complex clandestine societies that the Russian culture ever gave to the world. Currently, there are three series around the Medlov family: The Medlov Crime Family, The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov and The Medlov Men.

The Medlov Crime Family consists of four books and I would recommend reading these first.

• Dmitry’s Closet (2010)
• Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen (2010)
• Anatoly Medlov: Complete Reign (2011)
• Saving Anya (2012)

Each of these books introduce the characters who will continue to play a role in shaping the world of the Medlov empire and family.

The next group of books to read would be the Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov. They are a look back at Dmitry Medlov’s life from the time of 18 up until the transition of his life when he became the Czar of the underworld. There are so many questions answered in this series. We see the relationship between Ivan and his brother grow and wither, the introduction of beloved bodyguard Davyd, intimate relationships between al the main characters and the birth of many of your favorite bad boys. I am still working on Volumes 8-12, but there is plenty to read in Volumes 1-7.

• The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book One
• The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book Two
• The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book Three
• The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book Four
• The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book Five
• The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book Six
• The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Book Seven

The Medlov Men Series is a contemporary look at the men of the Medlov family and council. Instead of just focusing on their arms deals, we focus on the interpersonal relationships they have with each other and the women they love. After you have read the other series, you will definitely apprecieate the Medlov Men Series, but you don’t have to read the other books to understand these. I’ve designed them to be stand-alone books with full explanations, so you’ll never be lost.

• Vasily’s Revenge
• Gabriel’s Regret: Book One
• Gabriel’s Regret: Book Two
• Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One (Coming Soon)
• Anatoly’s Retribution: Book Two (Coming Soon)
• Dmitry’s Redemption: Book One (Coming Soon)
• Dmitry’s Redemption: Book Two (Coming Soon)

 

Dmitry’s Closet (Book 1) Medlov Crime Family Series – The Beginning of the Russian Mafia Romance Genre

“A man like Dmitry was never irate. His coldness was only reflected in the manner in which he destroyed.”
Read the book that started the Russian Mafia Romance genre nearly a decade ago. From USA TODAY bestselling interracial author Latrivia S. Nelson (now Latrivia Welch), comes a story about a deadly faction of the Russian mafia and an innocent woman who threatens to dismantle an empire with the promise of forbidden love.

 

The virginal recent college graduate, Royal Stone, is looking for employment in one of the country’s toughest recessions. While desperately wondering downtown Memphis résumé in-hand, she stumbles upon the seven-foot, blonde billionaire Dmitry Medlov, who offers her a job as the manager of his new boutique, Dmitry’s Closet.
Royal Stone is in for a big surprise.

 
After the clueless beauty accepts Dmitry’s generous job offer, Royal soon accepts his extravagant gifts, his bed and his upscale lifestyle. What she does not know is that her knight in shining armor is also the head of the Medlov Organized Crime Family, a faction of the elite Russian mafia organization, Vory v Zakone.

 
Dmitry Medlov faces a fork in the road.

 
For the first time in his life, the brutal mob boss is introduced to happiness, but not everyone around him wants the lonely Czar to have a happy ending. Under investigation by a joint task force, working to uncover a conspiracy on his council and battling with the old guards to bring their organization into the 21st century, the last thing Dmitry Medlov needs is to lose focus.

 

However, falling in love with Royal makes Dmitry want to break his coveted code, leave his self-made kingdom and start a life far away from the perils of the Thieves-in-Law. She is his purpose in life made flesh. But when his sociopathic brother, Ivan, comes to the Memphis bent on a murderous revenge, old sins resurface, and Royal becomes the unsuspecting target of Ivan’s wrath. What neither of the men know, is that Royal is carrying a secret of her own.

 

Who will win? Who will lose? Who will die? Watch all the skeletons as they tumble out of the interracial romantic suspense sensation, Dmitry’s Closet.

 

Warning: This book contains graphic language, sex, and various forms of violence. However, it will also melt your heart!

It’s a sad state of affairs for me ladies and gentlemen.  The book is complete, but the hard copy format will not be ready until July 15th.  Please world, do not be angry with me.  I’m working around the clock to provide some benefits in lieu of this horrid blunder.  Last time, the drop date was off by a month and half.  So, I’m happy to report that it’s just ten days later.  For many, it’s ten days too long.  So, I’m offering this:

Pre-order and you will receive a free PDF copy of the book for you to read until your book arrives.  I made the announcement tonight and have received great feedback from the readers.  Thanks so much for you all who have understood.  And I’m so blessed to have so many supporters.

Introducing the cover to my newest book – Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen

Let me be the first to say how proud I am of Kandace Tuggle,  our exclusive designer at RiverHouse Publishing, LLC for her fabulous work on the new cover for the much anticipated Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen book from the Medlov Crime Family Series.  We had a great conference call with the girls a few days back, where I told them that this would be coming.  Now, here it is as promised.

For me, when I see the cover, I know that the entire book is almost complete.  I always save the cover until the end to make sure that it really encompasses what the story is all about – mostly because I tend to deviate.

So, ladies, here it is.  We also have the site (www.dmitrysroyalflush.com)  , Twitter (HisRoyalFlush) and very soon Facebook. I hope  that you all are having a great day.  And don’t forget the drop date of July 5th.  More information will be coming out in the next few days.

Talk to you soon.

Xoxo and all that jazz,

Latrivia S. Nelson

Synopsis:

For Dmitry and Royal Medlov, money doesn’t equal happiness.  Forced to leave Memphis, TN and flee to Prague after a brutal mafia war, the couple nestled into the countryside to raise their daughter, Anya, and lead a safe, quiet life.   But when Dmitry’s son, Anatoly, shows up with an offer he can’t refuse, Dmitry is forced to go back to the life he left as boss of the most feared criminal organization in world.  Consequently, the deal could not only destroy the Medlov Crime Family but also Dmitry and Royal.     

 Royal hasn’t been the same since she was attacked three years ago.  Where she used to be a sweet, innocent girl, she’s now a jaded, bitter woman, who can’t be coddled by riches and luxury.  However, a reality check is in store for the pre-Madonna when Anya’s new teacher shows up with her sights set on stealing Dmitry, and Ivan’s old ally shows up with sights on killing him.  Can Royal save them all?  Will she?

With a family in such turmoil, the only way to survive is to stick together.  Read the gripping tale of a marriage strong enough to stand the test of time as Dmitry realizes that he has the best cards in the house as long as has a Royal Flush.

Typing Inferno – Pary Time, Part Time!

What I call a relaxing weekend (couch and book):-)

What I call a relaxing weekend (couch and book):-)

Some seasons, you have no new ideas.  You want to type, you long to write but nothing comes to mind.  Other times, you can write without eating or sleeping.  It’s “your own brand of heroine.”

For me lately, I’ve been faced with the better of the two.  New ideas have been flooding in like the River Jordan.  I think it has a lot to do with God’s mercy, because I’m so pathetic when I get writer’s block.  Plus there is no motivation like Chris Cornell’s old album Euphoria Morning.  I pulled out my Cornell collection to clear my mind and just when I dumped everything out, new GOOD stuff started to come in.  Chris has that effect on me, way back since Black Hole Sun when he was with Sound Garden.

I’ve had ideas springing forth like oil from a Texas well.  I wake up happy in the morning for no reason at all, wondering what I will come with next.  To celebrate my new motivation, even Adam has been reading lately.  Bless his soul; he went from being interrogated for my book to having to read about his interrogation.  (Did I mention he hates Romance novels?)

So far, I’ve started three new books.  I bet you I’m all finished by Easter with all of them. 

It’s party time people.  The fingers can’t type fast enough.

Xoxo and that jazz,

Latrivia
