Toni St. John is a nosy reporter chasing the story of her life, a story that will hopefully win her the Pulitzer Prize and national acclaim. When a tip about four mysterious suicides that happen in an upscale hotel in New Orleans, LA lands on her desk, she packs a bag and heads to the Big Easy to investigate.
What Toni doesn’t know is that the mysterious deaths are closely connected to her own sordid past, and the sexy alpha manager of the hotel, Jericho Laveau, is indelibly linked to her epic future. However, her adventure is not just about her own life – she discovers she is the key to the future of man. With warlocks, witches, angels and mayhem on her heels, this ambitious journalist gets more than she bargains for and possible more than she’s willing to write about.
Read Warlocks: The Creole Coven, Latrivia Welch’s first paranormal thriller about the power of love, the pain of truth and the strength of family in a classic good vs. evil story guaranteed to entertain you for hours.
NOTE TO READERS: This book was originally part of the Creole Nights boxset released in 2017. It has since been extended by over 160 pages and five additional chapters. If you think you enjoyed it before, wait until you read the extended version now.
Thank you for making this happen. Through your love and support, we hit the #1 slot on AA Mystery, and people are still talking about Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One. I am so honored and proud, but I could not have done it without you. THANK YOU.
Please continue to share the book and vision that is ours of the Medlov Men. For only $3.15, readers can enjoy a world of fun with the first family of the Russian Mafiya – The Medlov Men.
Also, if you’re up for it, join us this Saturday from 4-4:30 CDT for a book chat. Now, if you haven’t gotten around to the book, don’t listen in. There will be spoilers, but for those who have read and want to share their thoughts, we’d love to have you.
The book is finally out. After a few months of haggling with myself to get it done, I finally released Anatoly from my clutches. I have to admit that it’s hard. You grow so close to the characters until the manuscript is never really complete in the author’s mind. I could re-edit, rewrite for the rest of my life on the Medlov Men and never find a stopping point, because I enjoy it so much.
Alas, I have worked through my desire to keep this project close to my bosom and given my baby to you – for your personal entertainment.
So, now my question is, what are you doing this weekend. Outside of all the other things we have to do – soccer games, homework, dinner, weddings, hitting the gym, grocery shopping, laundry, quality time with the family and loved ones, etc. – I truly hope that you’ll be reading my book as well.
So far, I’ve received nearly 100 emails from our Quill Pen readers who have already read the book. They want to know when the second part of the book is coming out, because in the past I have been notorious for disappearing for months after a book drop. Well, not now. I’m back, ladies and gents. And Book Two will be released on November 1st. It will also be $3.15.
The second question that seems to be very popular is will all the questions be answered in the second book that arise from the first book. The answer is ABSOLUTELY! I love giving you a firm foundation and understanding of the characters and their state of mind before we get to the action and adventure of it all.
This book, in paperback format, which will come out on Amazon in one week, is 400 pages long. However, on the Kindle, they say it’s 246. If you’re hoping to get the paperback for your collection. We’ll send a separate update on that.
I really hope you buy the book today. We’re on the Amazon bestseller’s list in both Romantic Suspense and Multicultural/Interracial Romance. This is because you all have been so very wonderful with your support over the years.
I cannot express my gratitude for each of you. This new book is a celebration of life for me. LIAM is here, and he’s beautiful and precious and wonderful. The love I have for him is immeasurable. Y’all he is so perfect. God has been good. So, I’m on cloud nine. Thank you for being patient with me.
Also, I still have to put my collaboration with nine other amazing authors in our New Orleans project, Creole Nights. This was my first paranormal romance. Warlocks: The Creole Coven is the last book in the box set. I plan to re-release it in December with more meat. Make it bigger, better and more exciting. However, I can say it was an honor to watch the women on this project work. They are true professionals and talented their crafts.
So now back to my question. Are you going to read Anatoly’s Retribution: Book One this weekend? I truly hope that you will. And don’t forget to leave a review on Amazon, especially if it’s a good one. LOL.
Sending all my love to you. May you have a wonderful weekend.
It’s always nice to be able to give the readers what they want. And while I can never churn the books out as fast as we all want, I can work on getting the books out in the format that you’d like. That is why I am pleased to announce on behalf of myself and the RiverHouse Publishing, LLC team that we have made Gabriel’s Regret: The Complete Story available for pre-order on my website. You can get the complete story, Book one and Book two, in paperback for only $21.99. This price includes shipping, handling and my autograph. It’s great for your own bookshelf or to gift to a friend. We will take pre-orders until February 1st. Then books will be delivered no later than Valentine’s Day (2/14/17) to you and/or your loved ones.
What I was shocked about was the page count. 792 pages of one dynamic story. I can’t help it. I’ve read it a few times since its release and while I’m in the process of writing Anatoly’s Retribution. For those who haven’t be able to pick up either book yet, I’ve listed the synopsis of both below. Also, later this week, we will post the complete story online on Amazon and other digital platforms for $5.50 for each book. I do hope that if you haven’t read it, you’ll give me the opportunity to entertain you.
“There is nothing redeeming in what we do. We are simply bad men.” Dmitry Medlov
Read the second epic installment from the original Russian mafia crime family of the interracial romance genre. Gabriel’s Regret: The Complete Story is now available and ready to download.
THE MEDLOV MEN SERIES is the contemporary look at IR’s favorite Russian bad boys, their billionaire lifestyles, beautiful heroines of color, adorable children and action-packed adventures that promise to keep you entertained for hours.
Gabriel’s Regret: Book One –
Gabriel Medlov has lived two very different lives in his 30 years on this earth, mostly because of his very different parents & paths.
Gabriel’s mother, Emma Hutton, was born into British royalty with billions of dollars, but after her mother married the rugged Russian mobster, Dmitry Medlov, and gave him her inheritance, she denounced her family and became a freedom fighter, spending most of her life in the trenches of third-world countries fighting for the oppressed until her untimely death.
Gabriel’s father, Ivan Medlov, was a lot less selfless – a reputed Russian crime boss, the brother of Dmitry Medlov, and a rabid sociopath, he spent his life running guns, women and drugs until his nephew, Anatoly Medlov, murdered him.
With parents on two far extremes of the spectrum of good and evil, Gabriel was born right in the middle and spent most of his life as a second-string beta. Until now. After a series of bad events, the brooding, six-foot-nine, black-haired, blue-eyed, safe bet is on the verge of self-actualization or self-destruction, only he doesn’t know it.
All Gabriel does know is that his normally level-headed thinking and cool exterior are starting to give way to a much more violent and vocal monster that may or may not have been lurking below the surface for many years.
After a major fall-out with his live-in girlfriend in front of the entire family, Gabriel is sent from the palatial confines of the Medlov compound to the war-torn country of Ukraine to oversee a large munitions deal worth millions of dollars that he and his cousin tanked a few days before. For Gabriel, this trip is a test to determine what kind of man he is turning into, for everyone else it’s a rest from an ongoing domestic squabble.
When Gabriel arrives in the Ukraine, he is met by militia who are fighting a regional war on an international stage. As Russia shifts its focus to Syria, its military forces are being pulled out of the Ukraine. This allows for a very small opportunity to take back part of the ruptured city of Donetsk, but they can’t do it without his guns. Ready to business as usual and get back to the states, Gabriel is transported and introduced to the head of the militia – Valeriya Nenya. The music stops. The world stops. Gabriel’s heart stops. Who is this black woman and how did she just still his heart?
Born into a life of poverty and hate, Valeriya Nenya, is no princess. She is, however, fighting not only against the Russians who want to come in and take over her country but also Neo-Nazi separatists who have been terrorizing the country from within for years. With access of munitions and other aide cut off by the outside world, Gabriel Medlov and the Medlov Crime Family becomes Valeriya’s only hope to winning this war.
Deciding to stay a few days in Ukraine to gain Valeriya’s favor, Gabriel is forced to imbed with the militia until he can convince Valeriya and her money contacts that the Medlov Family is the right fit for their fight. While he is there, he is forced to see the world from a very different lens. Third world poverty, extreme racism, violence and starvation take on a whole new meaning as he discovers what Valeriya is fighting against. He also, for the first time, sees what his mother died fighting for. Only, with his father’s blood and his family’s trade, Gabriel discovers what he was possibly made to do and the movement and woman who will shift him from being a beta in the world of Medlov to an Alpha in a world of regret. But at what cost does this epiphany cost?
Gabriel’s Regret: Book Two –
Russian Billionaire bad-boy Gabriel Medlov is in serious mortal danger. Captured by a Neo-Nazis separatist group while trying to save his black girlfriend and business partner, Valeriya Nenya, during an ambush, he is relegated to being the prisoner of a man who not only hates Gabriel’s family, but also hates everything that the handsome six-foot eight crime boss stands for. However, even though he is a captor, Gabriel refuses to be broken, either mentally or physically, by anyone so beneath him. Reaching down inside of himself, he discovers that his past experiences with his family were not crutches, but actual lessons designed to prepare him for this very moment in his life. Will what he has learned keep him alive?
The Medlov Crime Family is not taking the kidnapping of one of their council members lightly. While they are no strangers to abduction, they realize it will take drastic measures to get him back in one piece. The head of the organization, Dmitry Medlov, pulls his men together and wreaks havoc on an army completely unready for his unrelenting retribution. The message is clear. He wants his nephew back. But even with his vast resources, can he get him back alive?
While protected by the Medlov Family from the outside world, Valeriya Nenya has to wage her own war inside the family, not only to get Dmitry to take her back with him when they extract the man she loves from the clutches of the Neo-Nazis but also to fight the battle going on between herself and the pregnant ex-girlfriend of Gabriel whose secrets will cost someone their life before the tale has ended. But who will die?
