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.
