Elle Schroder (elleschroder) | 51 comments From what I can remember, the book opens with a guy sitting outside his mountain cabin, and he sees a cougar sitting on the rocks above him (near him?). I think he's been away, possibly on a mission, but don't quote me on that. I don't remember much about the guy. He thinks it's a regular cougar, doesn't realise it's a shifter. I think he maybe nicknames her Mellencamp, after the singer. It's told from the guy's point of view, at least at first. Maybe he leaves food for her?

I don't think she's part of a shifter community, but rather running wild as a cougar, but can't remember why.

That's all I can remember. Sorry! I know it's not much. It's been a while since I read the book. I think I read it between 2000-2010.

Shivani | 14 comments The only female shifter romance I know of is The Art of Seducing a Naked Werewolf and she's a wolf.

Have you tried this listopia of human male mates: https://www.goodreads.com/list/show/1....

Good luck!

Elle Schroder (elleschroder) | 51 comments Thank you, I checked out that book and the list you linked, but no luck. Will keep looking!

Shivani | 14 comments Okay, could it be Golden Eyes by Maya Banks? The female shifter is a cheetah though.


message 6: by Elle (new)

Elle Schroder (elleschroder) | 51 comments It’s not Golden Eyes, I have that book and have read it multiple times. Very similar though, I think. Thank you for the suggestion!

Elle Schroder (elleschroder) | 51 comments Thank you so much for the suggestion, but it's not in that discussion. I did find another one to read though! Ha ha!

April | 37 comments The Gathering by Kelley Armstrong?


message 15: by Elle (new)

Elle Schroder (elleschroder) | 51 comments I don’t think so, as the one I’m looking for has a female living in cougar form and the man unaware that she’s a shifter. But thank you for the suggestion!

Emily | 16 comments Are you sure the main guy is a human? If not, it could be The Awakening


message 17: by Elle (new)

Elle Schroder (elleschroder) | 51 comments Thanks Emily, I read the sample on Amazon and I’m sure I haven’t read that book before, so that can’t be it. Thank you so much for the suggestion though!

A long shot - Amber Eyes by Maya Banks?


message 22: by Elle (new)

Elle Schroder (elleschroder) | 51 comments Thanks Kris, it's not that one but I have read Amber Eyes multiple times. It's a similar scenario I think. :)

I added some plot details to the topic header, so your book might be recognized from that description alone. Many members only read the headers.

Feel free to update it by clicking the small "edit" link after the topic header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app. (On the Mobile website, there's a "Desktop version" link at the bottom of the page.)

Yes, it's possible. I really don't remember anything of the book beyond the opening scene where he sees her (leaves food out for her?) and nicknames her Mellencamp. And with no luck finding it, now I'm beginning to question that too! But it's not Amber Eyes by Maya Banks.

MJ | 1430 comments No worries, I’ll keep an eye out for the book I’m thinking of.
