Accessing Categories from different store (different root node)

Hello.

In the site I’m building, i have a section where I’m going to showcase products that aren’t in the regular catalog.  A different type of user is supposed to log in and then they will have access to this “secret” catalog.  However, it lives in a different section of the site than the rest of the catalog.

My approach was to make that a separate root category, categorize the products that way, and then just access it from a new store (since the store will be pointing to to the new category root node. 

What I’m running in to is the inability to access the categories for a store that is not my current store. Is this possible?

Navigate to Catalog >manage Categories, Select Preferred Store for the category from the left dropdown menu ‘Choose Store View’ and make it active to the selected category.
