Her Unwilling Hero

Here’s an excerpt:


In the parking lot, Taylor put on her new headband. “Is she your girlfriend?”

Matthew cleared his throat. “We were in high school together.” Girlfriend? Her question stunned him.

“My dad’s little brother is Rick, and he has a crush on a girl in their neighborhood. When he looks at her—you were looking at Miss Amy the same way.”

Matthew told himself his niece was too young to understand that a man appreciates an attractive woman.

“What next, Uncle Matt?”

“We’re driving to the next town for lunch and a movie.”

She giggled.

“What’s so funny?” He could not guess what Taylor might say next.

“It’s like we’re on a date.”

Matthew smiled. He couldn’t believe his niece was eight years old. Eight going on eighteen.
