Wildcat by Cheryl Brooks

Wildcat (Cat Star Chronicles, #9)Science Fiction
Wildcat is book 9 in the Cat Star Chronicles and the story is still going strong.  Here is the Goodreads summary:
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.

I loved both of the main characters in Wildcat.  Sara Shield is so independent and does not think she needs a man, especially one like Jerden.  Jerden, on the other hand, is thought to be dangerous and a little insane.  Living like a hermit he does not think he will ever respond to any woman again.  When Sara shows no reaction to him as a man it really catches his attention  The more they are together the bigger their attraction to each other grown.
This is a good story line.  The opening scene with Jerden riding Sara’s missing stallion, Danuban, bareback and nude is priceless.  The addition of the black leopard running at Jerden’s side makes it perfect. The way Sara just ignores the lack of dress and the leopard gives a good insight into her character.  I just knew with that beginning that I was going to love the story.
Nathan Wolmack makes a good bad guy.  It takes awhile to find out what he wants from Sara but I knew from the beginning he was up to no good.
Most of the characters from the previous books make an appearance in Wildcat.  It was great to see Jack and Cat again.  I loved how the beginning of the first book was worked into the story.  It was great to also see all the rest of them again.  I think I saw the star of the next book.  Look and see if you agree that there is a new main character making an appearance.
On a recent trip to another blog there was a question about what male character I would like to see come to life.  My Answer:  Any one of the Zethithian’s in Cheryl’s books but preferably one I could call my own.
Wildcat is another book that will not be released until February of 2013.  Put Wildcat on your wish list or go ahead and pre-order.  I received Wildcat as an ARC from Netgalley.
Sourcebooks will publish Wildcat by Cheryl Brooks in 2013.
