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.

By popular demand, Latrivia S. Nelson is proud to announce a compilation of the first four of the twelve volumes from the Medlov Crime Family Short Stories Series.

Dmitry Medlov wasn’t always a billionaire crime boss. His rise to the top was a painstaking process that took many years and many trials and tribulations. From breaking out of prison on a twenty-year bid in Russia to trafficking guns in the back alleys of London and finally toppling a dynasty run by a blood-thirsty Czar, this seven-foot tall, bad boy had to earn every penny.

Along the way, however, he also learned about a woman’s heart, the pain of losing a sick wife, the drain of taking care of a psychotic kid brother, the knowledge of finding out that he was a father and pride of building an empire all before his 25th birthday.

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.

DMITRY’S CLOSET is the story of a hard-hearted crime lord who falls for a recent college graduate.  When Dmitry Medlov first met Royal Stone, she was searching for a job.  The attraction between the two is instant and Dmitry is so intrigued, he hires her to manage his new clothing store named Dmitry’s Closet.  Royal is surprised at the opportunity and salary, especially from such a gorgeous man.  As they work closely together, a relationship blossoms.  What Royal does not know is Dmitry is head of a Russian Mafia and there are enemies trying to destroy his empire. 

One of his staunchest rivals is his equally handsome brother Ivan.  Although Dmitry raised Ivan, he is jealous of the empire his older brother has amassed, so he comes to Memphis with plans to destroy him.  There is disloyalty in the Medlov camp, undercover officers all around and federal agents all waiting to take them down.  The challenge for Dmitry is determining who can be trusted, staying ahead of his younger brother and keeping his world a secret from Royal.

DMITRY’S CLOSET contains intrigue, action and romance.  At the beginning of the novel, I was not quite sure I would be drawn in, but after the first few chapters, I became fully engaged in by the chemistry between Royal and Dmitry.  Although they were an interracial couple, there was no emphasis put on this, which I enjoyed because that should not be a factor.  Royal’s innocence and naiveté coupled with Dmitry’s brusque behavior was like fire and ice.  The drama that ensued continued to engage me to the very end.  The plot took me from the street of Memphis to New York during fashion week, from Russia during the holidays and eventually to Prague.  Complex characters, settings, and concepts kept me on my toes.  I would recommend this one for those who like a romance tale with depth.

“What was Renee to Royal? Why friendship matters.”


I just finished speaking via facebook to a reader that I correspond with frequently over the Internet and a great post came to mind.  Friendship.  Many of us take the word, the notion, the relationship for granite.  However, can you imagine what it would be like not to have a friend?

My reader said that she had her sister, who was close and special to her.  I have my girls, a wolf pack of women who are smart, powerful and cunning, but they are also die-hard friends who are honest and true. 

Royal didn’t have that in Dmitry’s Closet, except through Renee.  We see that their relationship, along with Cory’s, keeps Royal grounded and a little privy to the things going on around her.

How many of us have friends that we can count on?  How many of us are lacking emotionally because we don’t have friends?  When my husband took me half way across the country and dropped me off for about seven months while he went and fought wars thousands of miles away, I would call my friends everyday.  Before we got unlimited, I would rack up a phone bill that would rival any 16-year old girl.  That foundation is key.  Your girls are key. 

What are you thoughts?
