Character’s name: Cassandra VanAlder
Tell us a little bit about yourself …
– Hi! I’m Cassandra VanAlder. I was born and raised in Nevada, and with a friend, run a nice boutique serving the community’s mystical needs. You’ve seen glimpses of me and my feline familiar, Myrddin, in Evelyn and Julie’s stories, and now, in my story A Wish Across Time, you’ll learn how I became the woman I am today.
Is expressing love difficult for you? Why?
– One would think being a student of the universe and believing in The Source, a place of all-encompassing, unconditional love from which we are born and eventually return to, that I would embrace and express love without issue. But I do. My heart was broken pretty badly in the past and I find I still have trouble letting that go.
If you were taken out of the story and placed into your author’s world, what would be the first thing you’d do?
– We’d go to the temple out in the desert.
If you could pull your author into your world, what do you think would happen to them?
– I wouldn’t let anything bad happen to her. In fact, I’d probably put her to work in my shop.
What was the best sexual experience you’ve had?
– My first one and my most recent one. I’d say more but I don’t want to risk spoiling the story. 😉
If you could time travel and/or live anywhere in the world, where would you go and/or where would that be?
– There’s been enough time travel on the ranch recently, and since I’ve lived vicariously through Evelyn and Julie, no need for me to do that. I like living on the ranch so I don’t see myself moving anywhere. I wouldn’t mind taking a long tour of the British Isles, though. All that history and mysticism… I’m sure it would be breathtaking.
Coffee or Tea?
Chocolate: Dark, Milk or White?
– Lasagna and garlic knots
Any other favorite you’d like to share?
– My favorite poem, “She Walks in Beauty” from The Love Poems of Lord Byron: A Romantic’s 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?

Adult Excerpt – A Wish Across Time by C.R. Moss
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.
