The Stripper (Available Now on Amazon)

The Stripper by Latrivia Welch

There is nothing worse than being alone on the holidays. For Jade, a consummate professional with little else in her life, when she is invited to a bachelorette party as recompense for discovering a work-place affair, she finds the cure for her holiday blues.

Kennedy is a stripper, but he likes to be called an exotic dancer. Beautiful and ambitious, he teaches Jade a lesson. One should never judge a book by its cover. However, the lesson he teaches soon becomes the same one he learns in the itty-bitty romance, The Stripper, by USA Today bestselling author Latrivia Welch.

*NOTE* This is a revised version of Seeking Santa from the 12 Alphas, 12 Months boxset.

The Pie Folks satisfied my Father’s Day need for sweets (Latrivia Welch Article on Tri-State Defender Newspaper Site)

by Latrivia Welch, Special to The New Tri-State Defender

A little bistro with a big name, The Pie Folks LLC is owned by Audrey and Ronald Anderson. It’s not uncommon for droves of people to line up in front of the eatery on Germantown Parkway in Cordova to buy pie before 11 a.m. in the middle of the week.   

The same warmth and hospitable demeanor the Andersons exude when you meet them is reflected in their restaurant. Black chairs accompany small tables perfect for an afternoon lunch meeting or quick getaway. Flavorful treats and delights, like imported orange hot tea and a chicken and veggie quiche, are among the items on a well-balanced menu.

“My husband and I always talked about owning our own business, and then one day while at church, we received a sign from God that it was time,” said Audrey Anderson, as she sat across from me at her restaurant.

Her debut to the IR world came on November 14th will hopefully flood Amazon with many more of her works. As a friend has coined, She is a ‘artist of the written word’ and is truly looking forward to sharing her misunderstood imagination with those that love a good romance book to escape to.

Right now she is enjoying life and seeing her works come into fruition make it that much more pleasurable especially when her books make others smile. Kassanna wouldn’t have it any other way.

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.

Just a little thought that has nothing to do with anything – #1

My husband and My sister…

Latrivia’s Round House Kick

So, I have two very special people in my life. My husband is my best friend and my sister is my best friend, and together they are the same side of the same coin. But, they never listen to me. They always bust my ass when I try to be soft and gentile, though it’s not my nature. What should I do about them? Should I shoot them? Should I hug them? Should I ignore them? Time will only tell.

All I know, is they are the most honest and loving people that God has ever given to this world. They always make fun of my (1) awesome round house kick (2) my ideas of how to make a family feel loved (3) my fashion sense. They may be right on two of the three, but I’m certain that I’m absolutely right on one of those issues, just not sure which of the three.

To be serious, ladies and gentlemen, life is short – shorter than we ever imagined. To have people who are willing to walk with you every step of the way is a blessing. Hold on to those people and those moments, because you never know when it will all end.

P.S. I can’t live without either one of them.
