The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: V4 Finally Released!!!


It’s been a long time coming, and to all my faithful fans, I do apologize.  Life always gets in the way of my writing plans.  It makes me remember a saying, “if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.”  During the last quarter, I had planned to drop several books, including V4.  My expectations, however, did not include my husband nearly dying in sleep, kids with insane homework assignments and several family trips, outings and visits.  Not to mention, RiverHouse opened a new office dead smack in the middle of the financial district of Manhattan (NYC).  I have been buuusssyyy.

The good news is that Adam is doing much better.  You don’t realize how special they are until they are nearly taken from you , right beside you.  For that, I am so thankful to my dear sweet savior, Jesus Christ.  The office is working out great in New York and will offer even more opportunities for readers and authors alike who follow RiverHouse and the family visits were awesome.  I saw my cousin for the first time in ten years and it was amazing.  We are even moving to the Miami-Ft. Lauderdale area next summer. 

But with everything going on, my writing slowed to a pitiful crawl.  Now, I’m back.  And as normal after being pulled away from my work, I am on fire.

I have a lot in front of me.  Saving Anya and The World In Reverse are due out both on Christmas Day.  It will be out no later than December 31st.  Please be patient with me.  If I pull this off, this will be the biggest project that I’ve ever taken on.

Now on to Volume 4 and Book One of the Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov.

The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov: Volume 4

Now a widower, Dmitry Medlov’s life has completely changed. Wealthy beyond his wildest dreams, his aspirations quickly move from more money to more power. Only the power he seeks is held by the commanding and elusive Czar of the underworld, Boss Smirnov.
When Dmitry successfully talks the underboss and the all-knowing eye of the underworld, Khalid, into arranging a meeting between he and Boss Smirnov, he has no idea what troubles he is about to face. There are secrets that will be exposed in Prague that will forever change his young life again, leading to a decision that will rock the underworld for good.
Meanwhile, back in London, the city is buzzing about the deaths of the entire board of directors of Dmitry’s newly acquired business, Hutton Industries, minus the company’s former front man, who was involved in a gruesome home invasion that left him blind, deaf, mute and paralyzed.

With no witnesses, leads or proof combined with the botched attempt on his own life during the horrid chain of events, Dmitry is looked over as a person of interest by Scotland Yard and is given carde blache to turn his new private company into his personal money laundering hub right under the public’s nose with the help of his Africa girlfriend, Oxford University senior and business genius, Elsa. And it’s just in time for his new secret alliance with the leaders of a powerful paramilitary sect led by Elsa’s father in Angola, Africa.

Dmitry’s new found power creates a checkmate for his ambitions to be boss but puts a target squarely on his back by not only organized crime heads around the world but also by his own brother, Ivan. Secret alliances are formed. Money is exchanged, and a definite war is looming. Only no one is willing to give up as much as Dmitry is to be king.

Read the last volume of the first book, The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov and witness the heart stopping rise of a giant and everything that he’s willing to do to become the world’s most powerful and deadly boss.

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.

 

The Many Sides of Dmitry Medlov: The Gym and Tattoos


Have you ever witnessed the beauty of a man pealing out of his suit to reveal tattoos on a well-sculpted body?  There is something that catches in your throat.  It throws you off.  He looks like a business man, but underneath he’s a bad boy.  Then all those other thoughts enter your mind.  You wonder other things:-) about him. 

Dmitry Medlov has many sides.  But he can’t keep the body of a Greek sculpture unless he goes to the gym.  So, what does a mob boss do?  He builds one in his home. 

We see that he thinks while he’s in there.  Early in the morning, he’s not sleeping in or eating a fattening breakfast.  He’s in the gym pumping some serious iron.  He’s always been that way too, since his time in the rough prisons in Russia.  (If you haven’t picked up The Chronicles of Young Dmitry Medlov Short Story, pick it up today at www.latrivianelson.info). 

When I developed this part of his character, several images came to mind.  Rough. Soft. Refined.  And Animalistic.  Dmitry is the type who can clearly go into any board room and conduct business, but he can also rip his clothes off and show scars, tattoos and muscles that would make any woman blush. 

Skinny guys have tattoos too.  I know this, but the best guys to look at have plenty of muscle.

Let’s remember that he wasn’t always rich and powerful.  He was a kid from the streets, or as he put it , a rat from the gutter.  Both he and Ivan were huge naturally, but when Dmitry added on pounds and pounds of muscle he became irresistible.

The next time that you’re in the gym, take notice of the guys who are muscular and their choice of tattoo.  I know some guys get names of their girlfriends and moms, children and etc.  But see if you can pick out a tribal tattoo, an elaborate tattoo, something different.

I saw a guy in Miami once with a beautiful tattoo on his back.  He was really, really buff – muscles everywhere.  When I asked him what they meant, he said, “If you have to ask, it’s not your business.”  I agreed, but I still made him buy me a drink:-)

Suits and Swagger


We talked about Dmitry and his jeans-and-beer side.  Now, it’s time to talk about Suits and Swagger.  When Royal first met Dmitry, he was in the restaurant playing the violin alone and wearing a suit.  When he arrived back from a trip to New York, he was wearing a suit.  When he showed up at her door for their first date, he was wearing a very nice suit.  Dmitry is not scared to put a suit on and wear it well.  It speaks to the more sophisticated part of his character. 

A man in a suit is a powerful thing.  Could you imagine James Bond in bib overalls?  Life just wouldn’t be the same.  The suit doesn’t make the man, but it does make him sexy.  It’s the swagger of the man once he puts the suit on.  It screams power, virility, control and yes, even sex.

One of the things you do notice is Dmitry relaxes a little more when he’s in other clothes.  When he’s in his suit, he’s boss.  When he’s in jeans, he’s just Dmitry. 

Have you noticed what a suit can do to a man?  Maybe that’s why you can only dress casually on Friday’s at the firm.  The suits exudes something more highly respected…maybe.

What are your thoughts?

The Many Sides of Dmitry Medlov: Jeans And Beer


Excerpt from Dmitry’s Closet:

She listened to the storm rock the city with wind, heavy rains and lightning as she waited. Curiously, she looked out the window across his large gated lawn undisturbed by the late night rumblings. Security guards with dogs walked the perimeter of his property even in the rain, while Anatoly stood on the porch watching her and waiting for Dmitry. Rich people, she thought as she sat back in her seat. They are so freaking dramatic.

She closed her eyes finally and relaxed her head on the leather, feeling the warm seats caress her body. She had nearly gone to sleep when Dmitry arrived back. As the door opened for him, rain quickly rushed inside, dampening her face. He jumped in with a pair of dark jeans and a blue v-neck top, looking the most casual that Royal had ever seen him.

“Hope I wasn’t long,” he said, taking a swig of the Foster’s beer that he carried with him.

“Actually, I dozed off there for a minute.” Royal sat up in the chair. “You look…great. Like a walking Ralph Lauren advertisement.” She nodded.

“A compliment? It seems that we are making progress, Royal,” he said as he tapped her knee. “Anatoly, let’s go,” Dmitry instructed, keeping his eye on Royal.

The car started, and they pulled off. Royal watched Dmitry curiously but did not speak.

***

There are so many sides to Dmitry. The gentleman. The killer. The businessman. The dude. The sex machine. The lover. The father. The husband. The brother. The boss. As we move forward with the series, it is important to always keep this blog going with discussions about the foundations of each character. Since Dmitry is focus of all the characters, it’s important to look at his many faces. He doesn’t try to be everything to everyone, but in this series, he has touched a lot of people (and not always in a good way).

Tonight, I wanted us to look at the Jeans and Beer guy. It’s not the biggest part of him, but it’s a soft, easy way to start the discussion off. A man whom you met wearing a suit and playing the violin pops out of his mansion in jeans and holding a beer on your first date. He has so many layers. While serious, there is something about Royal that makes Dmitry almost whimsical.

If there are any of us out there who are serious most of the time, is there a special someone who makes you relax, loosen up, forget the stick lodged firmly up our anal cavities and just be fun? Oddly enough, Royal wasn’t the whimsical type but she did give him normalcy that made him forget his place as boss and made him remember that he was still just a man who liked a girl.

What’s your favorite Dmitry?

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
