Dmitry’s Closet by Latrivia S. Nelson

For the first time in his life, Dmitry Medlov was considering breaking the code, departing his empire and starting a new life with Royal Stone.  But, because of his ties to the Russia Mafia as the ruthless leader of the Medlov Organized Crime Family, that was easier said than done, especially since every known law enforcement agent was determined to take him down.  And, it didn’t help matters much that his one and only blood brother was trying to take over his kingdom by permanently eliminating him with deadly force.  Yet, the worst part of it all was that his beloved Royal was totally in the dark about his criminal life.

While searching for a job, Royal Stone met Dmitry Medlov.  Greatly intrigued by her, Dmitry instantly hired her to manage his new clothing boutique named Dmitry’s Closet.  Although, surprised by the offer, Royal felt very gracious by the opportunity and quickly agreed to the offer.  It was long before a super hot love affair blossomed between them.  What Royal wasn’t aware of was that Dmitry led a double life as a Russia Mafia crime boss.  When discovered, will she or won’t she continue to be his woman?

Wow!  While I devoured Dmitry’s Closet, I felt as if I was right smack in the middle of a smoking hot soap opera.  This plot had the true markings fantastic storyline where race had no boundaries.  It was jam-packed with drama, cold-heartedness, betrayal, envy, humor, suspense, lust and raw passion.  Once started, I simply couldn’t get enough.  I was hanging on the edge of my seat turning page after page eager to see just how the story would unfold.  Dmitry and Royal were on total opposite ends of the spectrum.  Whereas Dmitry was worldly wise and callous; Royal took things at face value and was very inexperienced – almost too native.  Yet, she fitted perfectly with Dmitry and made him want to have more out of life than his criminal activities.  She softened his outlook on life.  Dmitry’s Closet is not for the faint of heart because it contained violent actions that some might find offensive.  Nevertheless, it needed to be told because of the cruel lifestyle of the mafia.  If you are looking for a thrilling read that will capture and tightly hold your attention from start to finish, then look no future than Latrivia S. Nelson’s Dmitry’s Closet.

Anatoly Medlov: Silence is A Virtue.


Ladies, I know that I’ve been gone for a while.  I’ve had quite the events going on, but now that things are settled for the moment, I had to get back to you, and how I’ve missed you.  The thing that has been on my mind has been my favorite character, Anatoly.  I’ve been working away everyday on his character development and in order to do so, I’ve had to constantly look at where he came from. 

In Dmitry’s Closet, Anatoly is the silent type.  However, in my opinion, his silence spoke in volumes.  There is something to be said about a man who can “hold his secrets.”  Have you ever met a man who was a chatter box?  You sit down with him and in ten minutes you know his entire life story.  There is nothing exciting about that.  For one thing, he likes to talk about himself.  Secondly, you can bet that half of what he’s telling you (unless he’s Forest Gump) isn’t true.

The only men who should be allowed to tell their life stories are old men and young boys.  Old men don’t have long on this earth and may be able to impart knowledge and wisdom.  Young boys (ten and under) haven’t been here long enough to bore you out of your mind.  Every other age group in between should learn to be conservative.

Our ongoing theme is the undying quest to find the Alpha Male.  Are there really many Alpha Males who are chatter boxes?  I wonder this often.  You meet a man in a bookstore.  He’s tall, beautiful, educated, but if he’s long winded, he’s probably trying to cover up something by talking.  You meet a gorgeous guy at the gym.  He’s muscular, he’s tan, he’s rich and he’s infatuated with his ex-girlfriend, whom he talks about whenever he’s reminded of something.  You meet a great doctor with hand that are strong and firm, but he uses them to talk and hypnotizes you with his long fingers as he describes how he performs each and every small procedure but couldn’t give you a back massage if he had instructions.  I could go on and on.  My girlfriends and I talk all the time at our dinner meetings (which consists of a lot of Jack Daniels and Scotch) and we always lament over the things that scratch men off the Alpha Male List.

What is the Alpha Male List?  It’s a list of undeniable characteristics that only a true Alpha Male has.  It’s fun and ridiculous, but it’s a great conversation topic.  You should try it.  Get your girls together and build your own Alpha Male like a Build-A-Bear. 

Anyhow, all of that is said to say this.  Anatoly is silent because behind his beautiful bright eyes are dark secrets that aren’t meant to be told.  The mysterious nature of his youth is what will propel him to an awesome future in the series. 

Now, quick question to all of you.  What is your ideal Alpha male?  And would you agree that he need be quiet? 

XoXo and all that jazz,

Latrivia

Introducing Anatoly Medlov: Complete Reign (Video Trailer)

E-Book Piracy May Change the Future of RiverHouse Publishing’s Releases


Let me vent for a while, ladies, if you don’t mind.  I spent many months, weeks, days, hours on my work.  So, it pains me to no end when I see that readers purchase my book and then post it on illegal forums, even against 17 U.S.C. § 512 and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (“DMCA”).  Why a person would want to first pirate another person’s personal work, then pawn if off for free.  Needless to say, I’ve already contacted the FBI and my lawyers.  This upsets me very much and provides to me the understanding of that double-edged sword of technology.  While I have loved the Kindle, Nook and PDF capabilities, I’m not sure that it’s worth being the victim of other people’s inconsiderate and costly behavior. 

What are your thoughts? Have any of you ever experienced this with your own work or have you ever pirated? 

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

Drop Date Pushed Back to July 15th Due to Printer


It’s a sad state of affairs for me ladies and gentlemen.  The book is complete, but the hard copy format will not be ready until July 15th.  Please world, do not be angry with me.  I’m working around the clock to provide some benefits in lieu of this horrid blunder.  Last time, the drop date was off by a month and half.  So, I’m happy to report that it’s just ten days later.  For many, it’s ten days too long.  So, I’m offering this:

However, you can still pre-order on my site (www.latrivianelson.com) starting tonight or on www.dmitrysroyalflush.com

Pre-order and you will receive a free PDF copy of the book for you to read until your book arrives.  I made the announcement tonight and have received great feedback from the readers.  Thanks so much for you all who have understood.  And I’m so blessed to have so many supporters. 

The good news is that the book will still be available on Kindle on the 5th!  You can also purchase the PDF format without the hard copy for $5 on www.dmitrysroyalflush.com.  So, if you don’t have a Kindle, like to read at work or home or prefer to laptop or desktop to pick up books, you won’t miss a beat.  For my hardcopy readers, the printer says that it could very well be back next week, but they’ve given me that date to be safe.  So, I’ll keep you updated. 

For all of those who receive the PDF, please send me your thoughts through the blog, facebook and email to let me know what you think (Latrivia@LatriviaNelson.com). 

And please Pray for me that I don’t jump off a cliff:-(

Xoxo and all that jazz,
