For your viewing pleasure.
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)
We’re working on the last part of Gabriel’s Regret: Book One. I’m so excited to release this book. Book 2 will be released at the end of September and will be placed on Amazon for pre-order. More will come every day as we count down to the release, but the date won’t be released until the day before. I know you’re going to love it. Fifteen chapters of excitement – Medlov Style.
I’ve had quite the month. When you think of the word “victorious” what comes to mind? For me, it’s being able to accomplish goals and stand in the face of adversity and speak His words to dominate the evil trying to attack me. No weapon formed shall prosper. Is that deep? Well, so is life. It often helps with my writing and it helps me stay grounded. This month, my husband and I were about to announce the soon-to-be arrival of a new little member of our family. We were at the 12-week mark and then at the doctor’s office while trying to get a better look at our little baby, we discovered that his/her little heart had stopped and we would have to heal and try again. It was hard. I remember the shock that overcame me and hearing Bruce cry in the background while holding my stepson. Tears. So many tears and so much adversity. But I spoke His praises despite my pain. Thank you, Lord for taking away the sting of death. Our little angel is gone to heaven. And I believe that He will bless us again. Still, it left me feeling a little blue. Then two weeks later, this last Thursday, while trying to leaving my office after a long and trying day, I heard the distinct sound of a hand gun behind me. Two rounds. I searched my purse, but my keys were at the bottom of it. No time. So, I turned to find a co-worker who was standing frozen in fear. The bullets were still whizzing. I pushed her inside of her car, dove into her back seat and called the police. 911 was busy. So I called my husband. His only words were, “I’m on my way.” He called dispatch and headed straight to me. Two weeks ago, my baby died. Thursday, I almost died, just being in the wrong place at the wrong time while some couple got into it on our premises or whatever. God is good. He kept me. And although I should feel shook up, I’m only grateful for another day. Funny, I was just telling my mother that. I told her that the real blessing in this life was to wake up and have another day. And boy, did my words resonate with me over the weekend. But it hasn’t stopped me. None of it. If anything, it’s made my purpose and drive clearer and given me one more testimony. I have many. So, I’m happy to share this with you. Gabriel’s Regret is going to be a great book, one of a man coming of age in his own right. I’m going to enjoy this book and every other that I write, because I have a great LIFE and I’m living it.

It’s Valentine’s Day Weekend, and no matter what reality looks like for you, a HAPPILY EVER AFTER should be part of your holiday. That’s exactly why I’m hoping that if you have not already purchased The Grunt 2 (which is the sixth book in the Lonely Heart Series) that you’ll purchase and read it this weekend.
As a matter of fact, you should purchase it now and have it ready for when you finally slow down.
Sure, everyone is going to suggest their book to you this weekend, but I’ll give you five reasons why you should pick The Grunt 2.
- In PDF format, it’s 535 pages long.
- The main characters truly are in love with each other. You can feel the passion.
- The supporting characters have full, fun plot lines. Plus, they make you feel “some kind of way.”
- The ending will make you laugh and cry. You won’t be disappointed.
- At $3.99, you’re literally getting 111,299 words of hot, steamy, sexy romance with a pinch of adventure.
Now, if you’ve already purchased The Grunt 2, then you should tune in this Saturday, February 13th to my radio show to talk about the book. For 30 minutes, we will talk about Brett, Courtney, Gavin, David and Amy; we’ll discuss how the story made you feel and what you want out of upcoming books by #LatriviaWelch. That will all be happening this weekend on the Skinny on Interracial Romance.
From your biggest fan,
Unless you’re a football fan (guilty as charged), then Sunday’s holiday won’t have much of a draw for you. And if you plan to use your day of doing something outside of watching millionaire’s toss the pig skin, then you might want to consider gobbling up a good HEA.
That’s right. The Grunt 2 is all about Courtney and Brett Black finding their happy ending. You can grab a glass of wine, a cup of coffee or tea, some cookies and a warm blanket and curl up to a military interracial romance (bw/wm) that is filled with a few laughs, a few cries and a few moments of utter victory.
But if you do happen to be watching THE GAME tomorrow, then you might consider topping off the evening after your team wins, with a good read to calm you down.
Only $3.99 for over 300 pages of excitement. If you haven’t read The Grunt, then start there. It’s definitely a fun read and if you like steamy, hot, sexy love scenes, then you’ll love this Grunt especially. Brett Black knows a thing or two about how to make a woman feel special.
But don’t take my word for it. Check it out for yourself. The Grunt and The Grunt 2, part of The Lonely Heart Series. Available for purchase today on Amazon’s Kindle and other select e-book platforms. Also, when you’re done, don’t forget to tell me what you think. Post a review or send me an email to Latrivia@LatriviaWelch.com.
Always my readers’ biggest fan,
“Marines don’t know how to spell the word defeat.” Gen. James “Mad Dog” Mattis

Immediately, he is shipped back to the U.S. with the expectation of being medically retired for injuries sustained in the line of duty. Only for a man who has only known one way of life his entire adulthood, the prospect of being kicked of out the Marine Corps creates an internal crisis and an external family conflict. Will he be able to fight back to the man he was in order to stay in his beloved Corps or will he have to take a new path?
Courtney Black is a new bride with an adorable stepson and a brand new baby girl; however, she doesn’t want to just be a military wife her entire life. So, when her husband is injured, she sees an opportunity for them to leave Camp Lejeune and start a new adventure, especially when Brett’s son’s biological father comes out of the shadows and threatens to take away the little boy that brought Brett and Courtney together. It’s her job to keep her family together despite everything that is tearing them apart. Will she be able to find the balance between personal aspirations and family obligation?
