Chapter 1 from "Change of Heart" by Jude Deveraux in A Holiday of Love The man behind the desk looked at the boy across from him with a mixture of envy and admiration. Only twelve years old, yet the lad had a brain that people would kill to have. I mustn't appear too eager, he thought. Must keep calm. We want him at Princeton -- preferably chained to a computer and not allowed out for meals. Ostensibly, he had been sent to Denver to interview several scholarship candidates, but the truth was, this boy was the only one who the admissions office was truly interested in, and the meeting had been set to the boy's convenience.
