Dmitry’s Redemption: Book One by Latrivia Welch

“Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown.”
William Shakespeare

After killing a fellow Vor on the international council, who sought to hurt his family, billionaire Russian crime boss Dmitry Medlov becomes the target of his old mentor’s final death wish. A special hit team is tapped to carry out the assassination, but a simple mistake only leaves him wounded.

“You should have killed me when you had the chance. Now, I’m coming for you and there is not a damn thing anyone can do to save you.”

With a second chance to protect his family, the Medlov family crisis plan is activated, causing them to upend their lives completely. The women of the Medlov family are carted off to an undisclosed location, while the men head to declare war on one of their own.

While trying to protect his family and appeal to his brotherhood, Dmitry is forced to deal with past demons, his own insecurities and his greatest fear – to lose control. However, his vulnerability might lead to making him an even stronger adversary, especially when his family and friends step up to protect the man who has always protected them.

Read Book One of Dmitry’s Redemption, from the first family of Bratva Romance in the final installation of the Medlov Men Series by USA Today bestselling author Latrivia Welch.

The Creator of the Russian Mafia Romance Genre – Latrivia Welch (Latrivia S. Nelson)

My names is Latrivia Welch, and I am the godmother of the Russian Mafia Romance genre.

Latrivia Welch – Dmitry’s Closet – Russian Mafia Romance Genre Founder

 

In 2010, I released Dmitry’s Closet, the first book of the Medlov Crime Family Series.

This book was a dark romance/ action-adventure set around an African-American virgin who had recently graduated from college, Royal Stone, and the Czar of the Russian Mafia underworld, Dmitry Medlov. He was a seven-foot blonde billionaire mobster from the ghettos of Kopotnya, a district in Moscow, Russia who had been accidently released from prison and after a planned assassination fled to London England and eventually to Memphis, TN.
Along the way of his awesome journey through young adulthood, I introduce his sociopathic brother, Ivan Medlov, his devoted friend and second in charge, Davyd, and a host of clever men and women from Angola, Africa to the halls of Oxford, who truly articulate the migration of organized crime from the Eastern bloc to Western Europe and finally to the US during the fall of the USSR and the rise of the Vory v Zakone and other factions like it, internationally.
Dmitry is very unique. He is multi-dimensional character who realizes his shortcomings, but truly maximizes on his potential and his strength – hence the anti-hero that everyone loves. He’s the ultimate alpha male and all it takes is one chapter for you to see that about him. His ambition and his compassion are what propelled him from being a poor, struggling soldier in the mafia to a billionaire Czar with international reach and fame.

But his love for his younger lover, Royal Stone, and the growth of their union by marriage and children, including an awesome set of twins, is what makes him the type of man that women like to read about.

When I first wrote this book, there was nothing like it out there, and I was told by quite a few major book reviewers and literary agents that the idea was too far fetched and far too unorthodoxies. Just check out some of my reviews on Amazon back in 2010. WOW!

Eight years later, I have written over 20 books around the Medlov Crime Family and hundreds of authors have written hundreds of books since I introduced the concept. This includes other African-American women authors who expanded the bwwm Russian mafia craze and the main stream white heroine/white hero stories that are out there produced by white female authors who took the concept across the aisle.
Now, Russian Mafia Romance is wildly popular.

Back then, it wasn’t widely popular to romanticize this particular lifestyle and to marry it with strong, African American, was even more farfetched. It was nothing that the major publishing houses had considered or dared touch.
However, the fans supported the work. We went from 50 readers to over 50,000 to many more for the Medlov Crime Family, who had dubbed themselves Medlovians.  Our collective success has been because of each of these women.  The women who bought the book, read the book, reviewed the book, suggested the book, posted the book online, gave us all an opportunity to connect with them and create something special. THANK YOU!! SPASIBA!

Latrivia Welch, Founder of the Russian Mafia Romance Genre and creator of The Medlov Crime Family Series

I’m very proud of the genre, very proud of how it has grown, but it’s important to me for people to know where it began. With an author who couldn’t get traditional backing or attention and decided to become an indie author with a very bold statement.

What was that statement?

Believe in yourself and your work and you can make it happen.

The First Russian Mafia Romance Novel was Dmitry’s Closet in 2010

FACT: The First Russian Mafia Romance Novel was Dmitry’s Closet in 2010

Series: The Medlov Crime Family Series

Year: 2010

Author: Latrivia S. Nelson (Now Latrivia Welch)

Books in Series: Dmitry’s Closet (2010), Dmitry’s Royal Flush: Rise of the Queen (2010), Anatoly Medlov: Complete Reign (2011), Saving Anya (2012).

I get asked the question alot these days.  My answer is the same.  I’m proud that the genre I started with one book has grown to hundreds of books and hundreds of authors across racial lines and country lines.  But I do hope that those who love the genre know it’s origins.  It doesn’t matter if you’re into interracial romance or not, this book is one of the truest testaments to the Russian Mafiya lifestyle.  It will also give you an idea of how these men do business.  We started the billionaire mafia craze with the introduction of The Medlov Crime Family and the seven foot lover, Dmitry Medlov.  Check it out and tell me what you think.  Remember, it happened here first.  #Medlovian

 

SYNOPSIS:

“A man like Dmitry was never irate. His coldness was only reflected in the manner in which he destroyed.”
Read the book that started the Russian Mafia Romance genre nearly a decade ago. From USA TODAY bestselling interracial author Latrivia S. Nelson (now Latrivia Welch), comes a story about a deadly faction of the Russian mafia and an innocent woman who threatens to dismantle their empire with the promise of forbidden love.

The virginal recent college graduate, Royal Stone, is looking for employment in one of the country’s toughest recessions. While desperately wondering downtown Memphis résumé in-hand, she stumbles upon the seven-foot, blonde billionaire Dmitry Medlov, who offers her a job as the manager of his new boutique, Dmitry’s Closet.
Royal Stone is in for a big surprise.

After the clueless beauty accepts Dmitry’s generous job offer, Royal soon accepts his extravagant gifts, his bed and his upscale lifestyle. What she does not know is that her knight in shining armor is also the head of the Medlov Organized Crime Family, a faction of the elite Russian mafia organization, Vory v Zakone.

Dmitry Medlov faces a fork in the road.

For the first time in his life, the brutal mob boss is introduced to happiness, but not everyone around him wants the lonely Czar to have a happy ending. Under investigation by a joint task force, working to uncover a conspiracy on his council and battling with the old guards to bring their organization into the 21st century, the last thing Dmitry Medlov needs is to lose focus.

However, falling in love with Royal makes Dmitry want to break his coveted code, leave his self-made kingdom and start a life far away from the perils of the Thieves-in-Law. She is his purpose in life made flesh. But when his sociopathic brother, Ivan, comes to the Memphis bent on a murderous revenge, old sins resurface, and Royal becomes the unsuspecting target of Ivan’s wrath. What neither of the men know, is that Royal is carrying a secret of her own.

Who will win? Who will lose? Who will die? Watch all the skeletons as they tumble out of the interracial romantic suspense sensation, Dmitry’s Closet.

Warning: This book contains graphic language, sex, and various forms of violence. However, it will also melt your heart!
