Welcome to my Sweet Saturday Sample from my newest contemporary romance, MEMORIES OF LOVE.
 “Dreaming about her again?” His sister, Jane, had an annoying way of zeroing in on just what was on his mind, whether he wanted her to or not. Only two years younger than he, she had his dark good looks and the same sharp brain. Although they had fought like cats and dogs as children, as adults they were devoted to each other. Even more so since the deaths of their parents.

Grant didn’t answer. Didn’t have to. Jane knew because they had talked about it. Argued is more like it. He remembered the most heated flare-up which had happened while they were strolling by the Lincoln Memorial, seven years ago.
“She left you. Stop holding a torch for her!” Jane fairly screamed at him.
“Can you control your heart? I can’t. I’ve tried, and it’s no good.” He stuffed his hands in his pants pockets.
“Then try harder! This is eating you up. You’ve lost weight.”
“And you holding a torch for Jason Sumner wasn’t the same thing?”
“That was high school, Grant.”
“So? You were torn up over him for two years.” He plopped down on the grass.
She joined him. “Yeah? Well, I got wise. I haven’t been like that since.”
“You haven’t loved anyone like that since, either.” His voice softened.
“And I don’t miss it. The heartache, the drama…”
“The love. The affection.”
I’m sorry, Grant. I am. I loved her, too. Carol Anne was…is…amazing. But she’s gone, big brother, and you’ve got to get on with your life.” She put her hand on his arm and stared into his eyes.
“I am, Jane. I’m getting married.” He trained his gaze on a dandelion proudly raising its head among the green blades.
“For all the wrong reasons.”
