The Neuroscience of How, When, Why and Who We Love
Author: Judith Horstman
Publisher: John Wiley & Sons
Who do we love? Who loves us? And why? Is love really a mystery, or can neuroscience offer some answers to these age-old questions? In her third enthralling book about the brain, Judith Horstman takes us on a lively tour of our most important sex and love organ and the whole smorgasbord of our many kinds of love-from the bonding of parent and child to the passion of erotic love, the affectionate love of companionship, the role of animals in our lives, and the love of God. Drawing on the latest neuroscience, she explores why and how we are born to love-how we're hardwired to crave the companionship of others, and how very badly things can go without love. Among the findings: parental love makes our brain bigger, sex and orgasm make it healthier, social isolation makes it miserable-and although the craving for romantic love can be described as an addiction, friendship may actually be the most important loving relationship of your life. Based on recent studies and articles culled from the prestigious Scientific American and Scientific American Mind magazines, The Scientific American Book of Love, Sex, and the Brain offers a fascinating look at how the brain controls our loving relationships, most intimate moments, and our deep and basic need for connection.

Free-spirit Crystal Tynan's goal in life was to marry a millionaire. Too bad handsome, sexy mall manager Blake Wright wasn't rich. Still, if she could loosen him up, a fling might be fun…. Everything changed for Blake when Crystal blew into town and temporarily took over her aunt's flower shop. Not only did she turn his mall upside down, he was lusting after someone who drove him crazy with her spontaneous window displays. Luckily, she'd be gone after Valentine's Day. But then, that gave Blake just one month to figure out what to do about their explosive sexual chemistry….
The Vietnam War; a war in which the government betrays its people, the military betrays its soldiers, the soldiers betray those they are assigned to protect...and one woman betrays her best friend.

These women's lives and the lives of all Americans are ripped apart by the turbulent 60's and the Vietnam War, taking 30 years to heal. The daughter of a four star general, Jenny leaves behind her sheltered life for the front lines of a war no one understands. Among the incomprehensible horrors, she discovers love and then great pain as the man she loves becomes a casualty of war. Upon her return to the "world," she is betrayed by her best friend and forced underground to protect her daughter and her own true identity. Music becomes Jenny's tool for survivalthe way back to herself. Kick is also an army brat and Jenny's best friend. She takes another road leading away from the rigid world of her military parents. Without an ounce of Jenny's idealism, she opts to tackle New York. A would-be photographer, she dives into the underground pop art and drug scene, hoping along the way to snag a rich husband who will give her the security and status she longs to possess. Debased and broken by the heir of an industrialist family and driven by jealousy, she betrays her best friend, her husband and herself. Only when the truth comes out, as it does through Jenny's grown daughter as she returns to Vietnam to find her father, can the waters calm and real healing begin.
