Mating Games: Wildcat by Cheryl Brooks

Please welcome Sara Shield and Jerden Morokovitz for today’s round of The Mating Game! Sara and Jerden star in Wildcat by Cheryl Brooks. Wildcat is the ninth book in the Cat Star Chronicles. This space romance was released on February 5, 2013. At the end of this post there is a giveaway for a signed copy of Wildcat, provided by Cheryl Brooks! Check out their naughty interview below!


DFT: What did you think when you first laid eyes on your mate?

Sara: To start with, he was riding my stallion. My very expensive, missing, Andalusian stallion that I’d imported all the way from Earth. To put it mildly, I was pissed.

Jerden: Oh, come on, Sara! You had to notice that I was naked—and hung like a horse.

Sara: So what if I did? I wasn’t interested in men.

Jerden: Well…not yet, anyway. When I first saw you, I knew you were a mystery that only I could solve.

DFT: Describe your mate in three words.

Jerden: Sara is determined, beautiful, and loving.

Sara: Jerden is charismatic, honest, and very, very sexy.

DFT: What is the most unique place you have ever made whoopie together?

Jerden & Sara: The rose garden in the moonlight.

DFT: What would you do if you caught someone hitting on your mate?

Jerden: Deck him.

Sara: Rip her a new one.

DFT: Describe how your mate smells to you.

Jerden: Absolutely incredible. Not to put too fine a point on it, one whiff of her makes my dick hard.

Sara: He has his own unique scent—sort of an aura, really—but breathing it in makes me feel better than anything else in the galaxy.

DFT: If you could have your mate dress in anything you want, and we do mean ANYTHING, what would choose?

Jerden: Boots and spurs and nothing else.

Sara: Nothing at all. He was naked when I first saw him, and that’s his best look.

DFT: Toliet paper, under or over?

Jerden & Sara: Over.

DFT: Leather or lace?

Jerden: Leather.

Sara: Leather or nothing at all.

DFT: Foreplay or roleplay?

Jerden: Foreplay

Sara: Definitely foreplay

DFT: Underwear – yes or no.

Jerden: No.

Sara: Yes for me, no for him.

DFT: Between the sheets or on top?

Jerden: Anywhere.

Sara: Ditto

DFT: My mate tastes like _______.

Jerden: She grows roses and smells like them, but she tastes like desire.

Sara: Mmm… Chocolate. He tastes like chocolate, and his semen tastes like whipped cream.

DFT: The sexiest noise my mate makes is ___________.

Sara: He purrs.

Jerden: Every sound she makes is sexy.

DFT:  My mate’s sexiest article of clothing is _______.

Jerden: Her tall black riding boots.

Sara: (grinning) Nothing at all—or maybe that loincloth.

DFT: The hottest thing my mate has ever said to me is ________.

Sara: “I will give you joy unlike any you have ever known.” But then, most Zetithians say that, so I’ll give you another of my favorites: “Bite me.”

Jerden: *grins* She had me at hello.

DFT: Porn movies or magazines?

Jerden: Neither. Both are totally useless.

Sara: What if they were pictures of me?

Jerden: That wouldn’t be porn.

Sara: Ooh…

DFT: The quickest way to turn my mate on is by ________.

Jerden: Purring

Sara: Putting on my spurs

DFT: Would your mate rather have chocolates or flowers for Valentine’s Day?

Sara: Flowers. They’re food for the soul.

Jerden: I would give her flowers because I know how much she enjoys them. *winks* Then I would give her a taste of me because she also loves chocolate.

About this Book:

When horse breeder Sara Shield encounters Jerden Morokovitz riding bareback and naked, she’s stunned by the magnificence of both man and stallion. But Sara came to Terra Minor to get away from men.

The murder of Jerden’s lover by a deranged woman has left this former star attraction of the Zetithian Palace brothel shattered in mind and body. Jerden is sure Sara can heal his anguish—but not unless he can find the key to her heart.

    It sounds really good. I have to wonder about the cover model – he looks like the same guy as on Thea Harrison’s gryphon Rune.

    I’m a big fan of Cheryl’s and I’ve read the entire series…including Wildcat. (If I happen to win, I have book addict friends;) I’ve also read Sex, Love, and a Purple Bikini, Midnight in Reno, If You Could Read My Mind (written as Samantha R. Michaels) and some of The Sextet books.

    I’m sorry that the book, “If You Could Read My Mind”, isn’t under the “Cheryl Brooks” name because I believe the exposure would be better. I say this because I particularly enjoyed the story…it isn’t sci-fi but has a touch of paranormal and the rest of Cheryl’s repartee. I could feel the love between hero and heroine.

    Obviously I’m into Cheryl’s voice. I think of The Cat Star Chronicles as a magic weave of sci-fi-love-hot sex and wicked sense of humor. Even if fans like the whole series, and they do, I also know they pick their own personal favorites…mine are Wildcat and Fugitive.

    The books stand alone and to the opposite, there are benefits from starting with Book 1 (Slave) but that’s not how I read them. I accidentally read them out of order.

    Don’t know about the cover model, Viki. They use stock photos from Dreamstime for most of my covers. Would love to see him in person, though!

    I am ready for this story! Any story with a horse and hot sex goes to the top of my TBR list :lol: I have read some of your stories, but I do have some catch up to do as well. I have them, but so many books, so little time. I can’t read a book a day like my friend Nancy :mrgreen:

    Cheryl I loved every minute of Wildcat.
    It broke my heart with the deep emotions between Jerden & Sara. But I was healed with the intense passion, friendship and true love that both characters found.
    It was a bumpy start, two individuals filled with so much pain. But you pulled it off without pretense.
    Thank you again. I love the Cat Star Chronicles and having rekindled my relationship with your books again, I am so happy!!

    Wonderful series…I’ve just finished the 3rd in this set and love that it’s got some humor mixed in with the steaminess!
