Look What the Cat Dragged In
for Evelyn by C.R. Moss
A woman in love. A ghost in need. A man possessed.
Myrddin, Cassandra's frisky feline familiar, has his work cut out to get two lovers together.
Evelyn is in love with Raritan Manor's resident ghost, Quinn, but can only experience his embrace in her dreams. Quinn, who doesn't realize he's a ghost, loves Eve and wishes she'd stop saying they can't be together. While at the manor, her friend, Julie, is prompted by Cassandra and Myrddin to invite their cousin, Alex, for a visit. When Alex arrives, 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 Myrddin comes around Alex feels like a man possessed and wants Eve with a passion, but the moment the cat leaves he's back to his old self again.
Caught between loving a ghost and putting up with a man who can't make up his mind, Evelyn is at a loss of what to do and feels as if she's losing her mind.
Can Myrddin get the right people together without causing too much heartache in the process?
Excerpt from Look What the Cat Dragged In
He looked at her, his gaze traveling over her face, searching her eyes. Then, he crushed her to him and pressed his lips on hers. Hypnotized by his kiss, she matched his eagerness with her own. His hands did a hungry search of her body. Warm passion rose in her and her thoughts fragmented. When his hand molded around her breast, a sense of caution clicked in her mind. She pulled away.
His broad shoulders heaved with every breath. "What is it, love? What is wrong?"
"Quinn, we can't keep doing this," her voice, faint and breathless, hitched on the words.
"Why not, sweetlin'?" She rose from the couch and smoothed her palms along her shorts while gaining her composure.
"Because, I told you, you're not real. You're a man who haunts my dreams and my friend's aunt's house."
Quinn's face darkened, his eyes narrowed. He stood and grasped her shoulders. "I wish you would stop this nonsense talk. You are not dreaming and I am real. The other day I thought I showed you—"
Evelyn put a finger up to his lips. "We had a wonderful experience, but it can't happen again. I wouldn't be able to live with myself."
"There's someone else," she lied.
Sadness melted Quinn's gaze. "Do you love him?"
Evelyn breathed with exasperation. "No, I don't." She paused, then added another lie, "Not yet at least."
Quinn took her in his arms. "Good. I do not know if I could handle you being in love with another man." He placed a kiss on her cheek, then nibbled her neck.
Her harnessed control broke free. Excitement drilled a hole in her center and desire twisted in its wake. Her mind spun in turmoil. She wanted him, but what would forging a bond with a ghost do to her psyche?
A relationship like that would eventually drive her insane.
