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)


The Contingency Plan : Book Four of The Lonely Heart Series is So Much Fun!!!

So everyone knows that my life has been pretty crazy lately with the pending divorce and the complete change of life, but there have been some great things that have happened.  In fact, my list of good completely outweighs my bad list.  That’s all due to the Man Upstairs, who has shown his face in my life continuously and never left my side.

As a celebration of life and love, I released a new book, and don’t worry this won’t be the last. I’m currently working on V5 for all the Dmitry fans.

The Contingency Plan is a fun book, designed to ask “what if”.  It’s not supposed to change any lives or make some huge point, it is however designed to entertain you.

Here’s the synopsis:

How many times do you hear about a woman asking a man to father her child via artificial insemination?  The concept is so common until it barely garners any notice.  But how often does a multi-millionaire, blue blood, heart throb ask Charlene “Charlie” Meadows to donate her eggs to mother his children?  Just once.  And it’s enough to make for one hell of a story.

Charlie is a dedicated solider to the cause of the Democratic Party.  As an intern, she gives one hundred percent to the Orrin campaign, and after hours, she gives one hundred percent to campaign manager, Sullivan Orrin.  Their connection is undeniable, and in her mind, they could be together forever.  Only all that changes when the man of her dreams is offered his dream job.

Sullivan “Sully” Orrin is no regular man.  An alpha male from head to toe with the fine finishing of an upper-class family and an Ivy League education, he is set-up and expected to succeed.  As a former playboy, he’s not ready when a young black girl from South Florida nearly derails his plans and makes him fall in love.  So what does he do?  Run.  Only he can’t run far enough from true love.  It catches back up with him nearly a decade later when he realizes that traditional relationships don’t work for him.  Opting to use InVitro Fertilization to start his own family, he has to pick the perfect woman.  And there is only one candidate that he has in mind.  Too bad she’s engaged.

Now Sully has to grovel and beg to get what he wants, and Charlie is now the successful woman that she always promised she would be.  Convincing her won’t be easy, and even if he does get her eggs, will it only make him want more?

Read the fourth book in national bestselling author Latrivia S. Nelson’s Lonely Heart Series, The Contingency Plan for a story that spans nearly two decades between polar opposite lovers who can’t help but attract in a romance that proves that even the best laid plans still have to be tested by life.

We are currently on the Amazon’s bestseller’s list, and we keep climbing.  This is all due to you.  Please log on to one of the blogs and share your thoughts.  I can’t wait to hear from you, and thanks for your unwavering support during this time in my life.  I love you all.

XoXo and all that jazz,

Latrivia Nelson @ Age 31!

Me in New York on the Hudson Bay with a Friend

It’s the day after my big 31st birthday, and I woke up this morning at 6:30.  Now, anyone who knows me can appreciate what a big step that is for me.  I’m a late riser, and I tend to go to bed very late.  It’s only because I write better late at night.

However, momma’s gotta brand new idea for age 31.  I want to be more proactive.  So, I’m attempting to get up earlier and get used to doing things the conventional way.

My husband, Adam, doesn’t have much faith in my new experiment.  He thinks that I’ll just ease back into late mornings where I wake up after ten to twelve hours of sleep and get started with my day.  But I’m going to surprise him. 

This morning, you should have seen his face when my alarm went off before the sun could rise all the way.  He was on the computer in the corner of our bedroom and when he heard the comforter rustle, he looked back all shocked with that “what in the hell” look on his face.

Well, I’m going to really get motivated this year. 

OMG!!! I am thirty one years old.  This is big!

I remember going out with my guy friends on a few occasions and there were always women in their 30s with us.  They seemed more together, more fashionable, had all the right comebacks and seemed to have it all figured out.  I was very young then, barely twenty, hanging with men ten years older or better.  They used to call me princess and little girl and so many other pet names. 

Now, I’m in my thirties and my guy friends are still around, and they don’t call me a baby anymore.  While I’m still younger than them, I find myself in the most stylish outfits with the busy schedule and quick and often sharp comebacks.  However, I don’t have it all figured out.  I’m still working on that one.

So the big question is what is going to be different about 31.  Well, I have a list.  And I won’t share it with you, because it’s sort of personal, but I can tell you that it includes three subgroups: financial, physical and spiritual.  I want to work on myself in all three areas.  Can you believe the kids fit into all three categories as well as Adam.  They are so greedy.

Many of my readers are well over 31.  I love to get their stories via email.  They share the most interesting stories.  I look forward to waking up, checking my email and getting a story from some of my readers who have had exciting weekends or finally found “the one.”  It makes for great material, and it enhances my life. I’m one of those who truly believes that sharing your stories helps other people grow.  Shame on you if you haven’t shared a story with someone.  It’s enlightening.  Plus, it’s down right entertaining.

One thing I wonder is if Adam still thinks of me as a young woman.  I wonder if my kids think that I’m old.  However, Jordan, our son, told me that I was 100 years old.  He needs to give me a freaking break. 

With every blessed year that you get a chance to be on this earth, however, I imagine that you have to give something back.  You have to pay your dues.  I know what I want to give in terms of literature and it terms of family and friends, but there has to be more.  So, I’m searching, you know.  I’m looking for one incredible way to give back.

What about you?  What things have you promised to give back as a result of you being on the earth one more year?

Well, that’s all for now on this blog.  I’ll be updating new blogs this week.

Oh, one more thing to share.  I started a Lonely Hearts Blog.  www.thelonelyheartseries.wordpress.com.

It’s a way to keep up with what’s coming up versus what’s already out there.

I hope you like it.
