Through all the years that passed,
the memory of their love never faded.
Motivational speaker and drug rehab counselor Ward Gemmell can hold an audience in the palm of his hand—because he knows what it’s like to have everything he loved slip through his fingers. When a particularly heartfelt speech reunites him with the daughter he never knew he had, suddenly the love of his life is back within his grasp. What could a guy like him do to earn a second chance?
Good girl Ansley Marlow was heartbroken the day Ward revealed his hidden life—the kind of secret that would tear anyone apart. But so many years have passed and so much has changed that it isn’t as hard now for her to believe in fate and redemption, even when those around her are unforgiving. All she needs is the strength to reach out and reclaim the beautiful life she should have had so long ago.

Live, Read & Breathe Reviews
"I liked Ward, I also felt a little sorry for him. He is like a handsome guy that you really could relate to, but he is also a jerk and hurts people without even realizing it. He is... so enticing."
Mom's Reading Corner
"...beautiful and hauntingly emotional. Kage captured the rollercoaster of emotions that would accompany such tragic circumstances. I loved that Ansley, Ward and Brooklyn were flawed, damaged by their collective past.
The love that blossoms between the family is authentic and as we uncover more secrets from the past, the audience more easily believes the undeniable love growing between Ansley and Ward. Kage captures the spirit of puppy love in a very grown up seeing. It grows and blossoms in a way that feels organic. It feels like Kage captured a real-life love story, with all its bumps and bruises."
Paws & Print Reviews
"I literally just finished ADDICTED TO ANSLEY and I think one of my new favorite authors is Linda Kage. She's going right up there with all my greats! ... All in all, what this story boils down to is love, redemption and family. Like I said, there's not one love scene but the tenderness, honesty and love between all the main characters will tug at your heart strings and you'll be praying for a HEA (which the author delivers in spades). I adore ADDICTED TO ANSLEY!"
