From the Back Cover

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 that his demise was accidental. But that's not the only thing she struggles with. All of a sudden, the impossible seems possible, and it's not clear whether that's a blessing or a curse.
 
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.
 
A powerful woman, an extraordinary man, and a murderous maniac who wants to destroy them. Fate has brought them together, but will it make them stronger or destroy them all in the end?

A compelling mix of love, paranormal power and long kept secrets that will keep you reading into the wee hours. Well done!"

Addison MacKenna is having devastating nightmares, and not just a few. She suspects the reason might have something to do with her late father's death, but has no other evidence that she possesses any other specific cause. From the opening scene describing Addie's reaction to her most recent nightmare, "Hot and tingly blood pulsed through her body... [and] a force strengthened and burned as though her veins were on fire," WHISPER CAPE'S readers are treated to hints that she is more than just your average waitress. Just moments later, tiny sparks shoot from her fingertips. A shaken Addie doesn't have a clue why.

Thus begins a series of events with questions she struggles to answer. Enter luscious hero Cael Sheridan and we are treated to more clues about his peculiarities. He can teleport, for example. And disappear. (And judging by Walsh's description of this sexy beast, we definitely don't want him to disappear.)

As with any fine romance, their relationship suffers from the start, with each keeping secrets from the other. Addie's telekinetic powers grow as Cael follows his quest to find a powerful crystal and associated sacred book. Together they are bound to solve an ages old mystery and fight an evil that threatens their very existence. While saving the world as we know it with supernatural powers isn't exactly a new idea, Walsh puts a wonderful spin on these already charming characters by mixing in a healthy dose of human traits. Cael may have the soul and powers of an ancient warrior, but he puts on his tight, sexy jeans one leg at a time and succumbs to Addie's allure and vulnerability just like the next dumb guy in love. Addie, for all her strength and determination, tiptoes into her new powerful role while trying not to fall for the seemingly mercurial Cael.

"Discrimination is a horrible reality. People are afraid of what they don't understand."

This was a really fun read. Out of everything, including the plot, characters, and romantic development between Addie and Cael, my favorite thing about this story was the setting. From the first chapter, everything felt so vivid. The town and the surroundings were very eerie, very atmospheric. The author did a great job at creating an unsettling mood throughout. I always felt what Addie was feeling--uncertainty and the general sense that something was just off. It's hard to leave a review about this book without sharing any spoilers, so I'll just say that the concept was interesting and was a nice change from a lot of paranormal romance stories out there right now. If you enjoy paranormal romance but would like a break from vamps and werewolves, Whisper Cape is a mysterious, engaging, romantic read.

Lee Anne's Review

Whisper Cape is a good beginning to a new series.

The story started a little slow as the characters and plot were developed. This often happens in stories that are the first of a series and I'm hoping the following books just jump right into the story.

I enjoyed Addie and Cael and enjoyed watching their relationship grow. I did feel Addie accepted things a little too readily. She just seemed to take everything in stride and there didn't really seem to be any disbelief or struggle to accept her new reality. This struck me a little odd as she was not raised in that world and knew nothing until Cael showed up in her small town.

The final battle was a nice culmination to the story, however I would have liked for it to be a little more intense. It just seemed a little too easy for Cael and Addie. But then, I like final battles to be gut wrenching and intense.

I liked the way Regan kept the reader guessing on the identity of the real villain. It made things more interesting not knowing and trying to figure it out. She did a nice job of spreading around the suspicion without laying it on too thick or making it too obvious.

The story ended in a tidy little package and the story can stand on it's own. I would have liked to see a cliffhanger at the end of the story to guide me into not being able to wait for the next book. I will definitely read the next book in the series, but a cliffhanger would have enticed me to run out and buy the next one right away.

I look forward to reading more from Regan and Whisper Cape.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION'S Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

I was contacted by a troupe that I work with to do a promotional Event for Regan Walsh in July. I had never heard of her before, nor had I heard about Whisper Cape. Trying to be the good book website admin and book promoter, I went out and bought the book on Amazon and when a gap opened in my schedule, decided to sit down and read it. I COULDN'T PUT IT DOWN!

In my honest opinion, this was one of the best new Urban Fantasy books I have read in the last year or so, and I've been doing A LOT of reading for review. I don't know if it just caught me in the right mood for this type of read or what (since I'm seeing a bit of mixed feelings from reviewers), but I personally thought it was fantastic and immediately recommended it to all 1,700+ of my Literal Addicts. :)

The premise is fresh, the characters relatable, the plot intense, the romance steamy... what more could you want?

Cael, the hunky hero of our story (and yes, I'm not afraid to admit I have a serious reader crush on Cael!), returns to Whisper Cape on a job for the secret society he's employed to. Upon his arrival, he runs into our fiesty heroine Addie and nothing is ever the same.

Addie has just returned to Whisper Cape after losing her father, and is living out a comfortable yet slightly boring life with her aunt and pseudo-uncle (her aunt's live-in boyfriend).

The dynamics between Cael and Addie throughout the story will have you laughing, on the verge of tears, frustrated, elated, and a plethora of other emotions in-between.

The plot is intense, mysterious, dark where it needs to be, light in others and thoroughly engrossing.
