Publisher's Summary

Unwrap a steamy British gift this year....

I had a brilliant life, living in England where everyone knew me as just Ben, the massage therapist. Then my mother summoned me home, determined to marry me off. You see, I'm not just Ben. I'm Bennett Worthington Montague, crown prince of Mithoria, and my mother has arranged for every eligible aristocratic girl to compete to become my princess.

Does anyone care what I want? 

But I'm planning my escape. When a mate offers to let me stay at his house in New Hampshire for Christmas while he's on holiday in Switzerland, I jump at the chance. But on my way there, I get lost. During a blizzard. Then a sexy girl rescues me. 

A snowstorm, a hot tub, and a beautiful woman. Need I say more? We've only just met, but we can't keep our hands off each other. This might just be the best Christmas ever. 

Unless someone tells my mother where I've gone. 

One Hot Christmas is the sixth book in the best-selling Hot Brits series of romantic comedies.

This forced proximity, instant attraction, holiday royal romance will make you swoon, laugh and feel warm inside. Narrated by Shane East and Vanessa Edwin, this wonderful Hot Brits story comes to life. They were the perfect cast for the swoony crown prince, Ben and fun, lively ,Sam. Shane and Vanessa so talented and a joy to listen to. They are two of my favorite narrator duos. I loved Vanessa’s British male voice, so swoon worthy. Shane’s voice is just delicious all around.

Fabulous, flirty instalove romcom

What a delightful Christmas gift from Anna Durand! One Hot Christmas is not only passionate, witty, fun, endearing and adorable, but it also has so much depth and heart that it's the perfect romcom for the holiday season.

Ben is trying to escape the royal family obligations that just don't appeal to his heart and soul. But when a road trip on the run goes awry, he gets rescued by Sam. Little does he know that she didn't just rescue him from a snow storm. Oh, no, she's going to rescue him from the life that he doesn't want to lead.

I love Sam and Ben's instant spark, their palpable connection, with chemistry that just leaped off the page. But there is so much more than the physical between the two of them. Their souls really seem to speak to each other, to search each other out. That recognition and connection makes them so close so quickly. I also loved how Sam's family provided such a strong counterpoint to Ben's family. Where Ben's family was about obligations and appearances, Sam's is about joy, fun and love.

The narration by Shane East and Vanessa Edwin is fantastic. They are both brilliantly cast. I'm a fan of both of them and have listened to many of their works. I think funny pondering Shane East just may be my favorite. Strong, supportive, determined Vanessa is definitely at the top of my list, too.

Sam+Ben - Royal/Close Proximity Romance

One of the things that I love about Anna Durand is that she isn't afraid to white about things that seem out there, yet with characters who are still so endearing. Another thing I love is that she very rarely messes with slow burns. One Hot Christmas was HOT from the very beginning. Ben and Sam just have instant chemistry and they really are quite into each other. Love the addition of Sam's family in this story too and the little check-ins from blast-from-the-past characters.

The audiobook was narrated by Vanessa Edwin and Shane East. #Shanessa4Life! I love this duo. They narrated the other Hot Brits books and my admiration for these two just grow each time I listen to one of their books.

Fun and steamy Christmas story!

Another amazing installment in the “Hot Brits” series and a fun and sizzling Christmas book.

Ben is on the way to a friend’s house for vacation when a snowstorm and a dead cell phone have other ideas. Lucky for Ben, he meets Sam, a fun and vibrant woman with a snowmobile. The two have a connection that is electric. Christmas magic is definitely in the air even when both families and a secret show up to their party of 2.

The chemistry between Ben and Sam is so hot, it could melt the snow in New Hampshire. I loved their instant connection. Ben is a British dream who has a bit of a family secret, nothing that’s too scandalous but a great plot twist. I loved how fun and sweet Sam was. She was an instant like for me. When both families showed up in their Christmas bubble, it made things even funnier and so relatable. The setup for the next book is great and I can’t wait to read that next.

I love when Shane East and Vanessa Edwin narrate together. They are two of my favorites and never disappoint bringing the written word to life.

Funny & Sweet Holiday Romance!

ALC Review*

One Hot Christmas is a charming & hysterical One Hot Christmas is a fun, hysterical fairytale romance. A holiday romance worthy of an annual re-read (or listen).

One Hot Christmas is the 6th book in Anna Durand's Hot Brits series, and it is without a doubt my new favorite! With a hilarious beginning in which the heroine rescues the dude in distress, I was hooked in the first few minutes!

Anna Durand's style, lovable characters, and steamy storytelling make One Hot Christmas a holiday must-read! I love Anna's writing and this lighthearted, low-angst, high-steam Christmas romance is absolutely delightful.

Ben is in need of a respite from family drama, so he escapes to New Hampshire for the holidays. But after a road map mix-up, our hero finds himself stranded and in need of rescuing. Sam is tired of the dating game and living a somewhat isolated life making a sweet inherited cabin her own and working remotely. Out for a ride on her trusty steed(er, snowmobile), she encounters a stranded stranger. Sam is the quirky, adorable, funny, gorgeous badass heroine Ben never knew he's always needed. Ben and Sam soon realize that a chance encounter could change everything. The chemistry sizzles in your ears between the intrepid MCs in this whirlwind escapade.

Chock-full of holiday fun, goofball relatives, witty banter, signature steam, and a whole lotta cheer, this audiobook should be at the top of everyone's Christmas list! A steamy twist on a chance encounter, forced proximity, love at first fireside glance romance. IYKYK. This is the heartwarming, adventurous holiday romp we all need. I was snort-laughing from the very start.

Shane East and Vanessa Edwin are perfect in this audiobook. They bring One Hot Christmas to life with their marvelous performances. Shane is hilariously charming in his narration of Ben. Romcom Shane embodies the stranded, mysterious, deliciously endearing stranger perfectly. Vanessa Edwin is witty, alluring, and utterly beguiling as Sam. Shane East and Vanessa Edwin are always a one-click narrator pair for me. They bring Anna Durand's words to life with lovely charm & smokin' hot style.

Well done all around and worth treating yourself to this darling holiday romance.

This book was the perfect romance to keep you warm during this holiday season. It is very sweet while being very steamy at the same time.

This one has become my favorite in the series and I highly recommend this one!

Fun-Sweet-Seggsy Christmas Story!

One Hot Christmas is sweet, fun, endearing, adorable, and deliciously naughty! Ben is an excellent book boyfriend, so it was truly a pleasure to listen to the love unfurl. He remains grounded, sweet, and irresistibly sexy even though he is under a tremendous amount of pressure and can see the life he wants slipping away. I really enjoyed the way they met, with Sam coming to the rescue. The forced proximity around the holidays with all of the uninvited guests makes for a great story that delivers all of the warm fuzzy feelings along with plenty of steamy moments to keep you on your toes.

Shanessa strikes again! Shane East & Vanessa Edwin deliver beautiful performances in this holiday romance you shouldn't pass up!
