According to the acquisition statement: 'Under Contract follows hotshot lawyer Becca who is dreading the annual family Thanksgiving break where the question on everyone’s lips will be "why are you still single?". So when she has a one night stand with a gorgeous stranger she meets in a bar, Becca decides to do what she does best: make a deal with Mr One Night to be her Mr Right…just for the holidays!
'With an iron-clad contract setting out the terms for their fake relationship, Becca has one important point. Clause 1.a. No kissing, no sex (as mind-blowing as it was), and absolutely no emotional attachment! But five thousand miles from home and spending every waking moment in the company of a man who makes her feel things she’s never felt before, just how easy will it be for Becca to stick to her own rules…
'Cassie Connor loves capsule wardrobes, packs light, enjoys weekending in Nice and takes her own champagne flute wherever she goes. She’s also got a history degree and has never finished War and Peace. When it comes to dating, her motto is CBA – Can’t Be Arsed – and has resorted to writing and inventing her own men because fictional heroes are always so much better. Hudson in her debut novel, Under Contract, proves the point perfectly.'
Connor said: "I’m absolute thrilled that my novel Under Contract has found a home at One More Chapter. I’ve always loved reading American romance and I despaired that a UK publisher would be willing to take on a British version but Charlotte Ledger has understood the vision for the book from the very first day it was pitched to her."
Ledger said: "This book is SPICY and the whole team love it! As more and more of us in the industry proudly embrace romance thanks to the amazing appetite of our readers for stories with happy ever afters, not to mention the huge light Tiktok has shone on the genre, publishing a book this funny, this sexy and this romantic is a sheer delight. I know readers around the world will love it as much as I do."
