e-copy of Love in the Time of Wormholes by Jess K. Hardy.
On this deep space pleasure cruise, love is in the recycled air.
Sunastara Jeka is passionate about two things: (1) meeting the needs of the varied species who holiday aboard her interstellar pleasure cruise during the day, and (2) avoiding attachments when the occasional guest meets her needs at night.
Sunny’s life is simple, straightforward, and safe until a former one-night stand becomes her newest crew member.
Freddie has never forgotten that night with Sunny. He’s ecstatic to see her again, until she tells him she never dates her coworkers. Determined not to lose this confident, sexy, hysterical woman again, Freddie bides his time, pursuing a purely professional relationship with Sunny when they’re on the clock, while he slowly charms her senseless after hours.
As Sunny breaks her own rules about workplace romance, her tragic past and a heartbreaking betrayal thrust her orderly life into chaos.
When a hostile species holidays aboard the ship, endangering VIP guests and even the known universe, Sunny and Freddie must decide. Will they let the gravity of their pasts keep them apart, or risk it all for love and fight for their future together?
Content Warning: Prior to the events of this book, the main character lost a child. She continues to process this loss throughout this story.
“Is it always this hard?” asked Freddie as they watched Garran’s shuttle pull away from the ship through the flexglass. “Saying goodbye to the guests?”
“No. Garran was special, one in a million, like a single piece of hay in a haystack.”
Freddie’s head swiveled toward her. He frowned. “Where did you hear that expression?”
She shrugged. “Some New Earth American guest, I think. Why?”
“If I may, I’m not sure you’re using it correctly. That particular saying is actually ‘like a needle in a haystack.’”
Her brow furrowed. “Well, that doesn’t make one lick of sense. Why would there be a needle in a stack of hay?”
“Hmm,” he considered. “I’ve never thought about it that way. Why would there be a needle in a haystack?”
“Don’t look at me.” She slid her arm around his waist.
“Baffling nature of the expression aside, it’s typically employed to point out how difficult it would be to find a certain thing or person. As hard as finding a single needle hidden in a haystack. For your purpose, to borrow another New Earth colloquialism, you could say something along the lines of ‘they broke the mold when they made him.’”
Sunny looked up at him, a smile breaking across her face. She didn’t often get to see him playing his role of L&C, let alone benefit from it. His kind, patient competence was, unsurprisingly, a major turn-on.
“Yes, that’s exactly what I meant,” she replied, then she grabbed his tie and pulled his lips to hers

Praise for Jess K. Hardy's Love in The Time of Wormholes:
“LOVE IN THE TIME OF WORMHOLES is the perfect blend of clever humor, hotter-than-hot romance, and alien antics! Hardy has delivered a phenomenal read that is quite literally out of this world. Find yourself laughing, crying, and honestly kinda horny through this sci-fi romcom." - Cate Pearce, author of Traitors of the Black Crown
“Love in the Time of Wormholes is a delightful, fast-paced, and warm-hearted rom-com set on an interstellar pleasure craft. Hardy weaves a dramatic socio-political backstory as we cheer for Sunny’s happy ending with Freddie, a spunky one-night stand that returns as a crew member… A great sci-fi rom-com with funny and unique characters and an engaging story.” - Readers’ Favorite.
