About this author

Giselle Ellis grew up on a farm thoroughly convinced she was Laura Ingalls; she was quite displeased to find out she was not. Giselle now lives just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota. She spends a great deal of time roaming around the Twin Cities looking in bookstores, museums, and any odd spot she can find. She also teaches, reads voraciously, and obsessively watches movies, which in turn has created an enormous fount of useless knowledge of which she is quite proud. If it were up to her, she would spend all of her time traveling the world, writing fiction, and trying to convince Major League Baseball that baseball should be played 365 days a year.

“I don't function without a heart, he said angrily and then
added under his breath as he grabbed at the front of his Tshirt,
He's right here.”

“Aaron’s mouth dropped open when he entered the “room;” it was more like a huge open loft … no walls, huge floor to ceiling windows, shiny hardwood floors … perfect for a studio. He had no idea how Jake had acquired such a huge space in Manhattan.
As if reading his mind, Alyson leaned over and whispered, “He bought the place next door and tore down the walls.”
“Perfect,” replied Aaron, “and did he happen to find a treasure chest hidden in one of the walls as well?”
“What do you mean?”
“I mean, how the holy hell does he afford this place? He looks like he’s twelve.”
“He’s twenty-​two, and he happens to be quite successful.”
“At twenty-​fucking-​two?”
“He was born with talent?” Alyson said questioningly.
“He’s a lucky wanker who blew the right people?” suggested Aaron.
Alyson tried to scowl but grinned instead, “A child prodigy?”
“A deal with the devil?”
“Naturally gifted?”
“An indulgent sugar daddy?”
“How about ‘c) All of the above’?” asked a third voice from behind the partition at the far corner of the studio.”

“Because whenever anyone gets within a ten-foot radius of him, you go insane.
Any time someone even dares to suggest there’s anyone in his life other than you, you go insane. Any time he’s not within touching distance, you go insane. And any time you think he’s falling away from you, that he’s not there, you go insane. You’ve put your whole life into him; what do you think that means, Jacob? How can you possibly explain that and not make it sound like he’s the axis your world spins on? Because if you can explain him away, and everything you feel for him away, then I’d like you to tell me how you function without a heart.”
