Sherry Sonnett

Author Sherry Sonnettabout this book: RESTRAINT is a very sexy erotic noir thriller. Publishers Weekly says, "Strong, sure, evocative...combines suspense, sex, morality, identity and impressive novel," while People Magazine calls it, "Smart, sharp, sexy...a terrific twisty novel."

I began writing RESTRAINT (a title I chose because my heroine has none) while I was getting a Masters degree from Harvard Divinity School. At first glance, this may seem very odd, but there is a real connection between sex and spirit. In fact, RESTRAINT is the story of a perverse spiritual awakening (which leads to a very dark place), one in which Vega Johnson, a financial planner in Los Angeles, embarks on a voyage of self-discovery, set off by an affair with Paul, a mysterious international businessman. In this exploration, Vega discovers a desire to test her boundaries both sexual and moral, and her life becomes about the quest for self-knowledge, the limits of self. As she goes from various sexual entanglements to criminal activity, she discovers her capacity to transgress -- to walk up to the edge and go beyond. Every experience, both sexual and criminal, leaves her feeling expanded, stronger, more capable of doing whatever needs to be done. When things go bad with Paul and Vega discovers that she'd been used, she doesn't flinch from a single explosive act which changes her life forever.
