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)

It has been a long twelve hours. But after many phone calls to Amazon by myself and fans, the book has finally been released and the block has been removed from US readers. Other readers in other countries were able to access the book, but those in the states could not. They told us that the KDP office was closed Monday-Friday, but we spoke with mangers and asked them to send urgent emails. For those managers, I am grateful. For every fan, I am thankful. Your support and patience is what keeps me going. I want you to know how much you mean to me. It’s funny. Adversity comes at you from every angle. They didn’t want to release the book. Three readers gave me bad reviews because they could not download the book even though they had not read one word, but GOD was there and he made all those crooked places straight. I’m smiling with you as you read this and I’m grateful for being so blessed to have you.
So here it is. Click the link and purchase today from Amazon. Gabriel’s Regret: Book Two LIVE.
Sincerely your biggest fan,
That’s right. I’ve hit “Publish” on Amazon’s Kindle and Barnes and Noble’s Nook, and we’re waiting to go LIVE on the platforms to bring you my next story…
“There is nothing redeeming in what we do. We are simply bad men.” Dmitry Medlov
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 actually 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 peace. 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?

Thanks in advance for your support of my work. You guys mean the world to me.
The Synopsis of Gabriel’s Regret
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?
