Gabriel’s Regret (SYNOPSIS)

Cover

 

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.  For Gabriel, this trip is a punishment for his recent philandering and general loss of control, but for Dmitry, it’s a test to determine what kind of man his nephew is turning into.

 

When Gabriel arrives in the war-torn country of 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 a very small opportunity to take over a much needed border town with an airport, but the militia must move fast.  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 and no priss.  She is, however, fighting not only against 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.

 

Blocked from leaving after an air strike, Gabriel is forced to imbed with the militia until Dmitry can get him help.  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.

I know to so many this project is just a short story. It’s one of 12 short stories in the series about Dmitry Medlov before he met Royal.  But my Medlovian women (oh that rowdy group of gals) are expecting excellence in each and every chapter.

In reading over my work on last night, I just wasn’t satisfied with the story yet. 100 pages of a short story that is supposed to leave you cursing me for more.  Don’t get me wrong. It’s fire, but it’s not ON fire.  So then, the debate happened.  I questioned if meeting a deadline was better than meeting YOUR expectations with my work.  And the answer came up, unequivocally NO.

This is why I’m pushing the book back one week. The 100 pages that we present to you need to knock your socks off, or at least make you want to take off your shoes and curl up to your e-reader.  Speaking of which, do people name theirs?  My e-book reader is named LUCY.  Anyway…

This series means so much to me. It’s the exploration of the mind behind the mature Russian billionaire who grew to be a worldwide leader of underworld munitions and the many relationships that he had to foster and forget.  In Dmitry’s Closet, we have a new understanding of the thick tension between Dmitry and Ivan in their first meeting when he arrived to Memphis from New York many years after the Chronicles has taken place.  We understand why Dmitry did not want Royal anywhere near Ivan, and after V7, we’ll understand why Ivan swore revenge for Arie.

The backstory makes everything fun. And this backstory is dedicated to all of you.  But I can’t dedicate something to you that I know is half done.  I’m asking for your forgiveness and understanding that we’re we a week off the mark, but somehow, I think you’re going to be entertained when it’s finally in your hands.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 6

A year after Dmitry Medlov makes a deal with his lover/business partner, Elsa, and her father, a general in the Angolan MPLA to provide all of their munitions, he hands over the reigns of the agreement to her fully in order to take on more lucrative and legal ventures in Milan, Italy.

Wrapped up in a huge development deal to build a new skyscraper, he turns his attention away from the Medlov Crime Family to strengthen the newly acquired, Hutton Industries.  Only his trust in those whom he has put in charge is quickly found to be misplaced.

His brother, Ivan, is building an army right under his nose to distribute and sell drugs at his clubs through the very men he was commissioned to kill and his new king maker’s son, Vladimir is helping to destroy him one secretive deal at a time.

Meanwhile, Elsa and Ivan’s wife, Arie, wage war on each other, not only over territory but also over Dmitry’s affection.  When Dmitry discovers all of the backstabbing schemes going on around him, he is forced to make life-changing decisions.

Read the sixth installment of national bestselling Author Latrivia Nelson’s The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov as the famous Russian brothers finally reach the point of no return.
