Escape to a world where the impossible becomes possible. WHISPER CAPE is a town of secrets and Addison MacKenna soon becomes tangled in a web of them. Plagued with nightmares of her father’s sudden and brutal death, Addie struggles with her anguish and refuses to believe his demise was accidental.
Fighting to shake off one of those devastating early morning nightmares, Addison finds it even harder to escape from the vision of a man lying on the side of the road—a man she may have just killed. When she frantically tries to locate him, he seemingly disappears, just the beginning of strange occurrences in her life. She also cannot ignore the weird sensations in her own body. Suddenly, the impossible seems possible, but is that a blessing or a curse?
Believing that her continual and worsening nightmares are both the key to her own new abilities and the clue to her father’s death, Addie knows she will not rest until she has the answers she craves. As she strives to cope with her new remarkable talents, someone else learns of her abilities—a disgruntled maniacal psychopath with his own agenda that involves eliminating Addie. The only one who can protect her, instruct her in the use of her powers and teach her how to destroy the murderous monster is the same man who makes Addie’s heart race and her blood heat with passion. The same man she’d left for dead.
Cael Sheridan may be arrogant and mysterious but he's also undeniably gorgeous. A member of a secret society, he is sworn to protect the woman he believes to be the daughter of his recently murdered mentor. In the process, he finds it impossible to resist her magnetic sensuality, complicating his efforts to shield and guide her as she learns to manage her newly acquired skills. At the same time, Addison has much to teach him about trust and commitment. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them both in end?
Here is one of those books where the cover can be deceiving. When I first got this book I really didn't look much further that the cover and that it was in my genre of reading. Where I thought I would be reading a bit of mystery/romance, I got much more. Whisper Cape is a dark, edgy, suspenseful read that is captivating from page one. With so many twists and turns within a story, you are compelled to continue to find out more secrets hidden within this town. Nobody is who they say they are and everyone has a secret past. The characters in this story are creatively written and have questionable personalities. You never know who is for real and who you can trust. Within this story is a female who has been raised by her aunt after he mother died. Her father, someone who traveled a lot growing up, was always a beacon of light for Addie. When he died, there were so many unanswered questions that left Addie feeling like it was no accident. When Addie and her aunt Maia move back to Whisper Cape, where she was born, mysterious things start to happen. It all begins with Cael. The stranger whom she almost kills with her car, brings feeling out of her that she wants to resist. Not only does Cael make her question everything she's feeling but also becomes her savior. Cael is the one person who can help her with the mystery of her father's death but also the suspicious deaths of women in her town. Enjoy this fast pace action/mystery/romantic story who need each other more than they realize.
