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!

When will V6 be released? We are tired of waiting?

 

Everyone should recognize where their strengths and weaknesses are.  It makes you a better person.  I have a lot of strengths but my weakness is that I want so badly to give readers a book until sometimes, I forget to give myself breathing room for life.  Simply put, I look at a calendar, say Oh, I can get a book out by then,” without ever really taking into account things like root canals, kiddie homework, crazy office work and Trivi’s occasional writing block.

When I started V6, I knew exactly what I wanted, but after I got more than half way done, I hated it.  It didn’t capture me at all. In fact, it didn’t capture Dmitry. So I threw out the entire story and started again.  Now, I’m feeling it. I like the story and I like where it’s going, but when am I going to be done?  Hell if I know.  It won’t be a long story.  It’s not designed to be.  V6 is all about outlining that pivotal point of no turning back for Dmitry and Ivan (and all the bystanders around them).

So, I wanted to let you know that I’m working on it, but it’s not there yet.  It will be soon.   However, please bare in mind that the synopsis is still the same.

How soon? Well, that’s how I get into this the first time.  I’ll never give a date again (PROMISE).  I’ll just let you know when it’s done and ready for you to order or download.

But I promise to keep you updated.  In fact, I will put up the prologue in a couple of days for you to read and see where it’s all headed.  Of course, it’s a rough, rough draft, but it will still be fun!

 

XoXo and all that jazz,

Latrivia
