  1. Hi Mrs. Nelson,

    I cannot wait for Anatoly’s story. However, I have one question. I read Dmitry’s closet and I loved Renee from the beginning. However, I not sure if she will be the same way as she was described in DC. Will she look more like the girl in the blog or the one in Dmitry’s closet?

    • Hi Tyesha,

      She will stay true to her form in Dmitry’s Closet with a few modifications that we’ll see as the book goes on. Renee goes on a diet. You know how that drives men mad!

      Thanks for your support!


  2. I loved ,Dimitry’s royal flush, ROTQ, but I must admit I was disappointed in Dimitry when he kissed Victoria and felt her up, was truly turned on by her, wanted her with a passion and after that, with her lipstick on his mouth and her scent on him, still turned on by her, he made love to his wife and she let him, I wish he could have handled it differently than kissing and fondling that ******** who drugged the so called love of his life, no matter what their problems were, I was sad when I lost respect for that character (Dimitry), it took all the happiness, I wanted to feel about their reconciliation. you’re still a very good writer and I will read the next book.

    I do want to thank you for writing the kind of stories that we who, though we love reading about love, we don’t want to read about descriptive actions, that does not show love to us. thanks for writing true romance.

    I am and always will be a big fan
