6 More Sentences From Her Reluctant Protector

If you stopped by last week, you met Matt and his heroine, Jessa. Today I'm sharing another snippet from their story, one where they're in the same hotel room they were in last week. Enjoy!

“I don’t know how to shoot a gun.”  Instead of accepting the weapon, she twisted her hands.

“Your brother’s a cop.  He never showed you how to shoot?”

            She shook her head.  “Weapons and danger are part of Mick’s life not mine.”

So, will Jessa take the weapon? Or will she fight Matt on it? Can he convince her it's in their best interests for her to learn to protect them both? You'll have to wait to find out!
