Advent Calendar Day 13: Addicted To You by Bethany Kane + Giveaway

Filed in Advent Calendar , Bethany Kane , featured , Giveaways , The Danger Lover Posted on December 13, 2011 @ 6:00 am 41 comments

Welcome to the 13th day of Book Lovers Inc Advent Calendar. Each day we will offer you one great read in a giveaway on all 24 days till Christmas.

Today you will have the chance to win one of my absolute favorite books of the year, the hot erotic romance about the handsome “addictive” Irish screenplay writer and director, Rill Pierce and the feisty Katie Hughes, Addicted To You by Bethany Kane (Beth Kery). I’ve long been a devout fan of Beth’s work and Addicted To You offers everything I’ve come to love about her stories. Complex characters, a riveting storyline, emotion, and PASSION. Katie, formerly a Beverly Hills tax attorney, quits her job, packs up her Maserati and heads to Vultures Canyon a very small Illinois town where Rill, wallowing in a well of self loathing has shunned his former illustrious career and is drinking himself to death. Katie is a weapon. Rill has been a friend for years (although she has secretly loved him) and Katie is determined to pull the brilliant playwright out of the gutter. Theirs is an emotional, fiery romance that kept me turning the pages from start to finish.

Purchasing Info: Author’s Website,, Barnes & Noble, Powell’s, Books-A-Million, Borders, Chapters, Goodreads, Kindle, Nook

Book Blurb:

Irish film director Rill Pierce fled to the tiny, backwoods town of Vulture ‘s Canyon, seeking sanctuary and solitude after a devastating tragedy. Once, his raw sex appeal and sultry Irish accent made women across the globe swoon. Now, he’s barely recognizable…

But Katie Hughes, his best friend’s sister, is not the type of woman to give up on a man like Rill. She blazes into Vulture’s Canyon determined to save him from himself. Instead, she finds herself unleashing years of pent-up passion. In a storm of hunger and need, Katie and Rill forget themselves and the world. But will Rill’s insatiable attraction to Katie heal his pain—or will it just feed the darkness within him?



The Review:
Addicted To You is a story I thoroughly enjoyed, it provided laugh out loud moments along with scenes that provoked significant emotion. Read the rest of the review.

    Yes, I did ask Santa for books. Will get a gift coupon for the audio book version of the new Stephen King book (waiting for the german version coming out end of january) & apart from that getting Jennifer Donnelly’s ‘The Wild Rose’ & Ransom Rigg’s “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children”.

    Actually I’m keeping a low profile with Santa this year as I haven’t been that good a girl 😉 so instead of presenting him a mile-long list I just bought books from my wishlist myself ;-D !

  • miki December 13, 2011 at 6:20 am

    i’ve asked for the bite before christmas and le voile noir but for the first one it will difficult for santa

    thanks you for this giveaway

  • Kaetrin December 13, 2011 at 6:25 am

    O this one sounsd like a good one! I never ask books from others, I always buy them myself. Books I do get offered (by collegues or family) are never to my tastes. And what I see, what I want, is what I buy immediately 😉 no waiting for Christmas or other festivities.

  • eli yanti December 13, 2011 at 6:44 am

    wow.. i have so many book to ask to santa, since i loved HR genre, i hope santa will send a lot of book from HR’s author 😉

  • Melanie S. December 13, 2011 at 7:46 am

    Yes, I’ve asked Santa for books, but I do already know that my Santa won’t bring me any books, because Santa says I already have enough books *sigh*

  • Mary Kirkland December 13, 2011 at 8:37 am

    Of course I asked Santa for books or for gift cards so I could buy books. My sister in law asked me which books I wanted so I sent her my Amazon wish list…which is 4 pages I told her if she wanted to she could pick form that list because I want them all. I am really loving the paranormal romance books right now, so most of the books I want are in that genre.

  • JenM December 13, 2011 at 9:34 am

    I’ve never asked for specific books for Christmas because if I want a book, I just buy it any time of the year. However, all of my friends know that Amazon GCs make me very happy.

  • ClaudiaGC December 13, 2011 at 10:58 am

    I didn’t wish for books in particular but for giftcards. That way I really get the books I want.
    Thank you for the giveaway! Would love to read that book.

  • Shay Lich December 13, 2011 at 11:15 am

    I have a few lora leigh books i need to get in her breed series, i have all but the last two. Make my series complete for now since she is still doing the breeds!!!! YAY

  • Gena Robertson December 13, 2011 at 11:40 am

    I asked Santa for one of two series of books: either the Black Dagger Brotherhood series by JR Ward or the Immortals After Dark series by Kressley Cole. Santa doesn’t like the books I read, so it’s a pretty long shot that I’ll get either one, but it was worth a shot, lol.
    Thank you so much for this giveaway op! Your book sounds wonderful! I love the best friends sister theme – that happened to me growing up 😉

  • Jan December 13, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    I tend not to get books as Santa’s afraid of doubling up. I do get book vouchers though, which are great. My mum is getting me Diana Gabaldon’s latest – as I sent her the press release and said ‘I want this’!

  • Marika Weber December 13, 2011 at 1:23 pm

    I have soooo wanted to read this for awhile now. Actually I want this one. I’m so dense. It didn’t realize that Beth and Bethany are the same person. Yes, I can be that dense.


  • Na December 13, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    I always ask Santa for books. It’s one of those gifts that keeps on giving. I asked for The Next Always by Nora Roberts, Rainshadow Road (not yet released) and The Fever series, which I read but want my own copy of 🙂

  • Estella December 13, 2011 at 3:04 pm

    Our family doesn’t give or receive gifts for Christmas.

  • erinf1 December 13, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    Thanks for a great giveaway! I don’t usually ask for books for Christmas as most everyone who knows me just gets me Amazon or B&N giftcards 😉 However when I was like 12, I asked for the Chronicles of Narnia box set. I got it and wish I still had them now!

    Happy Holidays!

  • Arianne December 13, 2011 at 3:36 pm

    I actually have not asked for books.. I’ve asked for various gift cards though! I don’t mind makeup either! 😀

    I’ve learned it’s easier for Santa if I ask for gift cards, so I have an Amazon gc on my list this year.

  • Diane December 13, 2011 at 6:23 pm

    I didn’t ask for books but for Gift cards to bookstores; it’s so hard for Santa to find a book for me so I thought I would make it easier.

  • Cecile December 13, 2011 at 8:33 pm

    Ohhh gosh, I suck at telling Santa what I want for Christmas. I am the one that gives… I never think of what to say when it comes to me. So I suck…. I really do. I wish I was like a child who holds no reservations about telling others what I want, lol.
    Thank you for the great giveaway!!!! alliwantandmorebooks

  • Karen C December 13, 2011 at 9:48 pm

    No, I haven’t asked for specific books – I’ve asked for gift certificates so I can buy my own! Addicted to You sounds like a good gift … Thanks for giveaway.


  • Mary G December 13, 2011 at 11:58 pm

    Hi Lea
    I have this book & loved it so don’t enter me. I have lots of books – I asked Santa for a Kindle to read them on although my iPhone does a great job.

  • Amel Armeliana December 14, 2011 at 6:25 am

    Since I don’t celebrate christmas then I don’t ask anything to Santa. But if I were celebrate it, no doubt…I’ll asking this book to him 🙂

    Thank u for this awesome giveaway

  • Tamsyn December 14, 2011 at 7:57 am

    I would ask for GCs! Gives me leeway to buy other things! :o) Thanks for the giveaway!


  • Dee F. December 14, 2011 at 9:53 am

    I’m afraid Santa is already aware of my addiction, but I’m hoping for a gc to my favorite bookseller anyway. I am looking forward to Zoe Archer’s The Devil’s Kiss.

  • Victoria Zumbrum December 14, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    Yes more books, gift cards, starbucks cards, and twilight stuff. Please enter me in contest.

  • Diane Sallans December 14, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    I don’t ask Santa for books, smart as he is he too often bought books I already had. GC’s for bookstores are always good, or a nice throw to cuddle under while I’m reading.

  • Barbara December 14, 2011 at 1:57 pm

    Not this year…but I wouldn’t say no to a GC! Happy Holidays!

  • Lea December 14, 2011 at 7:53 pm

    Hi everyone! Thanks for commenting and entering Beth’s Giveaway! Happy Holidays and I hope all those Gift Cards are waiting under the tree!

    Good luck in the giveaway!

  • Chelsea B. December 14, 2011 at 9:55 pm

    I did ask Santa for books this year, actually! I asked for Good Girls Don’t, Behind Closed Doors and The Sweetest Thing 🙂

  • Filia Oktarina December 15, 2011 at 6:03 am

    I would ask for many book, since i love Historical Romance and Paranormal Romance genre, i hope santa will send a lot of book!!
    Thanks for Giveaway.

  • enodia December 15, 2011 at 8:31 am

    of course i asked Santa, but I didn’t tell the title, cause I want Santa give me some surprise ^^

  • SarahM December 15, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    I asked for a GC to my fave online bookstore so I can buy what I want in e-books 🙂

  • Eva S December 15, 2011 at 6:15 pm

    Like so many else I haven’t asked for books, he wouldn’t know what to give me but a GC would be great.

  • Jessica C. December 16, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    I like to “window shop” on amazon. So I asked Santa for a Gift card this year.

  • Maureen December 17, 2011 at 5:43 pm

    I asked for gift cards so I can buy some books.

  • June M. December 17, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    I would much rather get gift cards so that I can buy whatever books catch my eye.

    • June M. December 17, 2011 at 5:51 pm

  • Jen B. December 20, 2011 at 8:22 pm

    This year I did not ask for specific books. Instead, I want GC to Amazon.

  • JessS December 26, 2011 at 1:30 am

    Yes! Including, Catching Fire and Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins, and Touch of Power by Maria V Snyder.
