Rhapsody of Succession PrintCoverV1

Finally, after doing a lot more research than I anticipated, I’ve completed Rhapsody of Succession, the fourth book of the Rhapsody series, continuing the global adventures and romantic journey of nuclear scientist and Cassini CEO, Professor Lauren Hind.

This one is a hoot, all the usual Rhapsody characters are back in humorous and fighting form plus a few more new and intriguing additions to the series, set to plague Lauren Hind’s well thought out plans yet again. And I’m really pleased with how the cover design worked out. Here’s the description:

Following confirmation, scientist and Cassini Chairman Lauren Hind adjusts to the realities of becoming pregnant with triplets at the age of forty-three. But husband Philippe, struggling to return to normality after the trauma of Murmansk, loses communications on an extended hunting holiday in Siberia. Whilst her news filters out, he remains unaware of Lauren’s plight, adding to her frustration and growing alarm with unresolved dilemmas, as she falls back on past affections to try and come to terms and understand. In the midst of this and grappling with continuing international success, Lauren suddenly finds her daughter, friends and colleagues making their own declarations of pregnancy as a veritable epidemic ensues, with major consequences as daughter Charlotte announces it’s time to wed again and step-daughter Svet abruptly ends family ties. When a mysterious Russian gas engineer, Olga, appears from nowhere into her life, she is reluctantly forced to reassess her foundering marriage and make an array of life changing decisions. An unexpected phone call triggers a journey to the darkest interiors of Central Africa. Why must she go, given her condition? And can anyone confront the murky plot and consequences that await and save her before the nightmare of the last nine months finally knits together for a devastating conclusion?

Where does nuclear fusion meet romance and adventure in Sicily? In the Rhapsody of Restraint now available on Amazon Kindle everywhere.

This is a contemporary romance and suspense novel, where you head to your nearest coffee shop, buy yourself a round of Cappuccinos, download the book and while away the rest of the day in pleasurable escapism and indulgence. Professor Lauren Hind is a scientist who appears to have it all – global recognition for her nuclear fusion work, a doting designer husband who she loves and a mega salary in a large corporate so she can indulge freely in her joint passions of haute couture and mathematics. But is this sufficient to quell a growing and unexplainable mid-life unease about her feelings and what she really wants?

In the spring she embarks to Sicily to lead a prestigious research conference but unexpectedly meets up with the mysterious and beguiling Luis who lures her into a culture she had not experienced. Fuelled by drink and intrigue, a train of events and happenings take off and Lauren finds herself desperately buffeted by a seemingly irresolvable kaleidoscope of emotional and confused outcomes which threaten to violently overturn her well-structured lifestyle and relationship bearings.

When her husband turns up she intends to use her innate scientific brain and good leadership skills to quickly analyse her way out of the mess she has created and save her marriage — but new and interrelated twists and turns throw her into further turmoil, entanglements and more betrayal as she is forced to question everything she has stood for and taken for granted. She has to make fundamental choices and face the consequences or break free. But just when she thought she had made the right and logical decision, someone turns up who has the capability, passion and desire to take from Lauren whatever she wants.

Lauren needs to muster up her best problem solving skills and find the will and the strength to confront and resolve this additional adversity and get to the bottom of her own complicated needs but can she overcome the temptations …?

THE RHAPSODY OF RESTRAINT is the debut novel of Roy Baldwin and is the first book of the Rhapsody Trilogy series which continues the intriguing scientific and emotional destiny of Lauren Hind.
