A Wish Across Time
Raritan Manor Ranch Book 3
C. R. Moss

A woman once shunned. A man now changed. There’s a thin line between love and hate.

Ryan Keene finds Cassandra enchanting and feels he’s met her somewhere before. She and her best friend, Debi, won’t give him any clues as to her identity. He loves challenges and doesn't plan to back off from her until he finds the answers he seeks. He's told he has three dates to win her over.
Will she close off her heart or will she allow herself to feel again?

Cassandra- practicing Wiccan, owns Myrddin her familiar, detests Ryan for leading her on in High School

Ryan- a changed man, enchanted by an aloof Cassandra, determined to win

This is my favorite book of the three!! Cassandra has been my favorite person throughout the series and now she has her own book. I couldn't put it down. Cassandra doesn't make it easy for Ryan and the trips down memory lane are painful.. they make my inner teen cringe in sympathy. This is a book SO worth reading. You will love it. It is another fast read but it gives you everything you need. Great characters and a great story.

A look at C.R. Moss and Cassandra from A Wish Across Time



Hi everyone! I’m happy to be here today to tell you all a bit about myself and my most recent release.

First a small Q & A about me…

1)      Please tell us 5 interesting facts about yourself that readers might not know about you …
~ I used to crew for a balloon pilot. I watch most of the RHO_ shows on Bravo. I used to dance. I used to compete in twirling competitions. I’m planning on going for my Concealed Carry Permit.
2)      What do you like to do in your spare time?
~ I read, crochet, play cards with friends and family and travel.
3)      How did you get started writing and have you always wanted to be an author?
~ For a very brief period of time, I had ideas of becoming a teacher or an astronaut. Both occurred before the age of ten. But for the most part, I knew I wanted to write at a young age, as early as I learned to read. I was always cooking up stories to entertain myself in the rural area I lived in. Had to since there were no other kids around to play with. My defining moment came when I received an A in English in grade school. I was just shy of being a teenager when I had my ‘calling.’ Ever since then, most of my choices in life have revolved around my goal of becoming a full-time fiction writer and being published.
Upon my ‘calling,’ I had written a story for a magazine. It’d been rejected, but that was my start. After that, I began studying the craft of writing. It started with working on the school newspaper in middle school to creative writing classes and Teens Art Festivals in high school. I received a BA in Communications, Information and Library Studies from Rutgers College with a strong concentration in English Lit/Writing and Interpersonal Communications/PR. Studying under the mentorship of Terri Valentine (author of ‘Sands of Time,’ a Zebra Historical Romance), I honed my novel writing skills. In the mid to late 2000s, I finally put my foot down, got over my nerves and took the plunge into submitting stories to publishers. I’ve been published since 2008, and as for the craft, I’m still learning things by taking the occasional online class, attending industry conferences, and devouring all the writing how-to books I can get my hands on.
4)      If you for some reason couldn’t be an author, what would your other choice be?
~ I’ve worked as a massage therapist, real estate agent and as an office admin/executive assistant. Most of my choices in life have revolved around my goal of becoming a full-time fiction writer and being published. Writing is something I’ve wanted to do since I was a kid. It’s like breathing and eating. It’s intrinsic, a must do or I’ll go crazy type thing. I’m an author in my soul. But, if I had no choice and couldn’t be a writer, I’d probably fall back on what I’ve done in the past.

C.R.

Excerpt


Moments later, he jerked out and away from her, then pulled her up from the floor. In a quick turn, he spun and thrust her back against the wall. His mouth claimed hers with unapologetic force. He fumbled with the fastens of her jeans, then when they were undone, tugged the material down her legs.
“Commando, huh?” Not letting her answer, he positioned his head between her legs and swept his tongue over her pussy.
Fleeting imaginings of her family and friends coming home and being welcomed by the sight of her and Ryan fucking at the foot of the stairs danced through her mind. If it happened, so be it. Getting caught only added to the heightened state of arousal she was already in.
His tongue and fingers stroked her. Her heartbeat sped up, as did her breathing. He seemed to have mastered the technique of cunnilingus if the way her nerves caught fire and flamed up from her pussy to the rest of her body were any indication. She panted. She clasped his head, ready to feel an orgasm rip through her body.
He stopped, stood, and reached into his back pocket. He pulled out his wallet, and from it, the all too familiar foil packet. Ryan held it up. “Yes?”
“Yes.” She nodded as well to emphasize the point.
In a few quick motions, he had himself sheathed and pressed up against her body. “You are one sexy lady. Anyone ever tell you that?”
She bobbed her head again and guided his cock into her pussy.
“Put your legs around me,” he demanded.
Supported by the wall and his hands on her ass, she wrapped one leg then the other around him and found the position to be quite enjoyable. Ryan pumped into her as he kissed and sucked her shoulder. She rode him, feeling the sexual energy build between them.
Her ex had never been so passionate. In fact, their lovemaking had been so normal and ordinary he never would have considered taking her up against a wall, and especially not in a location where they could get caught. It was nice being with a man who exuded confidence and gave into desire, even if it was Ryan.

Quinn VanAlder, who doesn’t realize he’s a ghost, loves Eve and wishes she’d stop saying they can’t be together.
While at the ranch, Alex VanAlder arrives for a visit, and Evelyn’s hopes rise. Perhaps she will be able to have a real relationship after all. Alex, though, has no interest in Evelyn. Yet, every time the house cat, Myrddin, comes around, Alex feels like a man possessed and wants Eve with a passion.
Caught between loving a ghost and putting up with a man who can’t make up his mind, Evelyn is at a loss. Can the magic of the ranch help Evelyn to stop being caught between two worlds?

Evelyn has lucid dreams, believes loving Quinn is just a dream 

Quinn is an artist, in love with his dream girl, frustrated that she refuses to believe their love is real.

This story is not like any I have ever read. I hadn't read many involving ghosts, OK so maybe only 1 book now 2. This was great! Living it two worlds each thinking they are right and not knowing their was way more going on. The characters were endearing and funny. I wanted to know more and more about them. The cat is quite the character himself. This was a fast little read that kept me entertained. Looking forward to the next one. 






Book 2  ~  Journey Across Time


There is magic on the ranch...

A woman examining life. A man on a quest. Time restores his spirit and her love.

Trent, a man in the past on a mission to discover where he belongs, embarks on a spiritual journey. His spirit guide, to his dismay, is a frisky feline named Myrddin. During a ritual, the cat brings the soul searcher forward into Julie VanAlder’s world.
Julie is attracted to the newcomer on the ranch, but his strange mannerisms and speech dictate she use caution, especially when she learns where he’s from. A botched relationship, supposed time travel, spiritual mumbo jumbo…it’s almost too much for Julie to take.
Can Trent make her believe in destiny and win her love before it’s too late?

Julie Van Alder- from the present, Best friend of Evelyn, recently soul crushed by loss, use to weird things happening at her Aunts ranch but Trent may be the strangest thing of all

Trent Whitetail- from the past, adopted by the past Van Alder Family, went on a quest and found himself in the future

This book is a continuation of the first book. It picks up closely where it leaves off. I need to say it, I love this cat, Myrddin. This story is entertaining and different from the first. Watching Julie struggle with everything going on around her while trying not to fall in love makes for a great story. This book is also a good fast read.
