From the Publisher

Raised by Wolves is an epic gay historical romance - in the classic sense - told in four parts and set in the Caribbean during the infamous buccaneer period of the late 1660’s. This is not a series, per se, but one very long novel divided into four volumes. Each book can be read separately, but it is highly suggested that one starts at the beginning. The story chronicles the pivotal years of the life of duelist and dilettante, John Williams, Viscount of Marsdale, aka Will among the Brethren of the Coast, and his relationship with madman and physician, Gaston the Ghoul, once known as Gabriel Sable, the Comte de Montren.

Raised by Wolves is the story of a man who embarks on a voyage of self-discovery revolving around his committed relationship to a man far more troubled than he is. This love provides the catalyst for Will to mature, confront the demons of his youth, understand true love, define his spirituality, and determine what kind of legacy he will leave in the world. Raised by Wolves is a character-driven chronicle written in the first person; and it contains psychology, philosophy, gay issues, history, graphic violence, graphic sex, people struggling with the issues of rape and child abuse, colorful and complex secondary characters, a twisting plot involving hidden motives, and lots and lots of romance expressed and defined by the main characters actually talking to one another.

Some Music Is Inherently Bad—But People Can Be Convinced Otherwise

Artistic appreciation is a deeply subjective process, perhaps the most essentially personal thing that humans do. But are there some explanations for why we like what we do? Why, for instance, does a particular song get popular? Some of it has to do with the quality of the music—and by quality, I mean that there’s something about the music itself the resonates with people and makes them want to listen to it.  One thing that people seem to like in music is when it addresses themes we care about—particularly songs that involve romance. There is a debate over what kind of meaning is conveyed by

Love Can Make You Smarter

Love is supposed to make you stupid. We’re used to seeing the lover as a mooning fool, blind to his lover’s faults and the goings-on of the outside world, or even as a person who has lost all sense of rationality or propriety, driven to a kind of madness. There’s science to back this up: Love has been shown to decrease brain activity in areas associated with memory, long-term planning, learning, and abstract thought, and psychologists have found a correlation between love and irrational and obsessive behaviors. However, as with most human emotions, there are two sides to this love story. Bein

Casual Sex May Be Improving America’s Marriages: One-night stands and friends with benefits are just what your brain ordered.

An American man and a French woman meet on a train in Eastern Europe. They live on different continents. But before the sun comes up, they have spent the night together. What happens next? You’d expect the answer to be, nothing. It’s just a one-night stand in a faraway place. But in director Richard Linklater’s trilogy, Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight, their romance blooms into commitment and kids. While some might dismiss this as Hollywood romanticism, it is actually a common experience. For the past five years, my colleagues at Match.com and I have conducted an annual nati
