* The Science of Kissing
* The Argument For and Against Romance Bond Mates
Way back in early 2008, Time Magazine’s cover story explored the science of romance. I saved the article as I knew I could one day write about it in a column at AAR. When I read Lora Leigh’s Dawn’s Awakening a few months later, the opportunity jumped out.

The Breeds were created in inhumane laboratories by The Council, a large group of greedy men working with unscrupulous scientists to create the ultimate warrior through experiments combining the DNA of humans and animals such as a lions, cougars, wolves, and coyotes. The purpose of many of the experiments was to insure the procreation of the Breeds. In this, The Council failed. It was only after the Breeds began to escape and to couple up with life mates that they discovered a limited fertility, one which they keep secret to protect themselves against recapture by those on The Council who were not imprisoned by the government.
