I am looking for a shifter series where the male protagonist is a leopard or tiger shifter and she is the daughter of a scientist, or someone from an organization which hates shifters, and stays at some guarded compound. The shifter stakes her, and once she runs or decides to meet his friend and he comes in front of her, she faints. Later he takes her to his place in a treetop.

I read it long time back, maybe 2 years (2016ish). Does anyone know what book this is?

    Stupid question: You are not referring to the Animorphs series by K. A. Applegate are you? Is it a new series or stand alone book that came out later? Wikipedia says the last book came out in about 2001... – Odin1806 Jul 2 '18 at 19:45
  • I made some possible changes. Look them over and see whether they match with what you meant to ask. – FuzzyBoots Jul 2 '18 at 19:48
  • @FuzzyBoots I changed the tag to [books] because the OP mentions a series and not necessarily a novel. – TheLethalCarrot Jul 2 '18 at 19:49
  • Specifically, what do you mean by "stakes" her? Is that supposed to be "stalks"? Or does he impale her with, or pin her down with, a stake? Does he stake her out? – FuzzyBoots Jul 2 '18 at 19:49
  • @Steda "What do you mean by a "cat shifter"? I am not familiar with a word "shifter' used in science fiction and fantasy. – M. A. Golding Jul 3 '18 at 1:17

I'm not at all sure of this...but perhaps you are referring to one of the Psy-Changeling books by Nalani Singh.

The Psy-Changeling world is made up of three races:

The Psy have phenomenal mental abilities, from telepathy to telekinesis, psychometry to foresight. However, these gifts come with a price—they drive the Psy to insanity and murderous violence. As a result, at the beginning of the series, they have lived for over a hundred years under a protocol called Silence, which conditions them to eliminate their emotions. The Psy are cold, detached, and do not have relationships based in emotion. The most powerful among them are called cardinals. Cardinals are identified by distinctive eyes colored like the night sky – white stars on black.

The changelings have two forms—human and animal—and they are at home in both of those forms. Some changelings are dominant, others more submissive. Major changeling groups in the series include: leopards, wolves, bears, water-based changelings, and falcons. They are as emotional as the Psy are cold. Passionately devoted to their mates and blood-loyal to their packs and clans, changelings are physically powerful and as dangerously intelligent. An alpha changeling can go toe-to-toe with a cardinal Psy and not blink.

The humans are like you and me. However, they’re caught in the midst of the power struggle between the Psy and the changelings. At the beginning of the series, the humans are considered the weakest of the three races, but as the series continues, we discover they have a critical role to play. The Human Alliance is the group that represents human interests in the Psy-Changeling world.

The series is set up as a series of romance novels between Psy's and changeling referred to in the books as a shifter fairly often).

If I remember the first novel was a romance between a Psy and a leopard shifter. He has a treetop home.
