ABOUT THE BOOK:

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.

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

She’s a convicted felon.

★.•°`☆ Synopsis ☆`°•.★

Montana Moonshine is a second-chance, forbidden, cowboy romance.

Brandon

Six convicted felons have been through my ranch rehabilitation program—all of them men.

Until now.

The seventh obliterated every damn rule I had.

Blonde hair and an attitude to boot, Louisiana Carlyle was like no other, and totally off-limits.

Ironically, while doing time for grand larceny, she unlawfully stole my heart.

Louisiana

Eight months behind bars. Eight months separated from the one I’d give my life for.

Riding out the remaining three months of my sentence on a cattle ranch should be easy, right?

Turns out, it wasn’t for this city gal. Not with a cowboy like Brandon Nash in charge.

He made me trust again. He made me whole again.

And damn him, he made me fall in love again.

Tim Shepherd came into my life, the only person to see beyond my title as the crime boss’s daughter.

 

A sucker for his pale green eyes, muscular tattooed body, and skills in the boxing ring, I fell hard and fast.

 

As he worked his way up the ranks, he also found a spot in my heart and my bed.

We were headed for marriage when an entitled prick who didn’t understand the word no assaulted me and nearly lost his life at Tim’s hands.

 

He went to prison, and I was shipped off to recover out of town.

 

Now I’m back for my father’s funeral and looking at the only man who’s ever held my heart.

 

I’m ready to take back everything that was stolen from me.

 

I’ll prove to him and his family, who blame me for running his life we were always meant to be together.

Blurb:
From USA Today bestselling author Sedona Venez comes a new, intense stand-alone firefighter romance about overcoming breathtaking losses at a young age, first love and second chances.

 

 

A friendship torn apart by fire…

 

Lukas was my best friend, the first kid to greet me when I moved from NYC to Vermont.

 

We never got past friendship, but when he disappeared shortly after his mother’s tragic death in a fire, I always wondered if we could have been more.

 

Back in New York City, working the beat, I got the wind knocked out of my sails—and found out what happened to the boy I’d known.

 

 

Even when we tell ourselves it’s just catching up between friends, I can’t deny that Lukas feels like home, even more than the place I grew up.

 

But I can’t be the carefree girl I once was.

 

 

I can’t trust myself to know what I want, or how to get it anymore.

 

I can’t trust anyone, even my grandmother, to understand my scars.

 

 

What happened to me as a cop haunts me, makes me question whether I chose the right career—but when a crime spree starts in my hometown, I can’t help but jump in.

 

And when Lukas shows me his scars, I know he can handle mine.

 

With a career with the NYPD beckoning me back to the city, and obligations pulling me back home, how can I know whether things with Lukas can even work, no matter how much we care about each other?

Heart of Fire is a stand-alone, Second Chance, Firefighter Romance.

USA TODAY Bestselling Author Sedona Venez lives in New York City with her hot ex-military hubby–hooah–and their fur babies. She loves writing sizzling, sexy intricate stories about strong but broken characters who push limits, overcome their fears, and risk it all for love.

Jacob Thorton was forced to return home and take care of his family’s ranch after his parents’ death. He left everything behind, including the one woman he made promises to. Ryland O’Hare.

When the farm goes under, he runs away from his failures, with a duffle bag, and a one way ticket to anywhere. Who would have thought Jacob would bump into Ryland in Switzerland?

He never stopped loving her and hated himself for leaving Ryland in the first place. Then he received shocking news that changed the course of his life. And once again, he left Ryland with more broken promises.

After years of no contact, Ryland runs into Jacob. Her first instinct is to punch him in the throat. She loves him and hates him just as much. But one look at Jacob’s six year old daughter, Ryland does the math, and assumes this is why he vanished.

What he did was unforgivable.

What she did was even worse.

And nothing could have prepared them for what came next.

Blurb:

The minute he laid eyes on Deandra at his brother’s engagement party, Diego Garcia was smitten. The older woman with voluptuous curves, and an enchanting laugh, drew him in like bees to honey. The week-long destination wedding in Spain was his chance to win her over and show her that age truly is nothing more than a number. The Garcia family was known for their curse. Once they meet the one, no other woman exists. Now, he has to prove to Deandra what he feels is more than lust. 

History professor Deandra Little found the young lawyer’s interest flattering, but she didn’t see how their life would meld. That didn’t mean she saw anything wrong with a little bump and grind in paradise, so she let the charmer take her to bed. More than passion was made on their trip, and now a baby will make three in eight months. Torn between wanting to believe the fantasy Diego is selling and her need to build a firm foundation for their child, Deandra has plenty to consider. 

Will they be co-parents or more by the time their bouncing bundle arrives?

The past refused to let their love die.

The last thing Loretta “Lo” Inam expected to find on her new dating service was the one man who shattered her heart. Dating without seeing each other or knowing the other’s name seemed perfect. She spent seven months falling for the charming man with a deep voice and a strong personality. Connecting over their love of 80’s movies, the outdoors, and more, she’s ready to call him the one. Imagine her shock when she sees her lost love, Tomas Garcia. 

Attorney to a prestigious family law firm, Tomas Garcia is tired of hooking up with women who only want him for what he can give them. The new dating site was perfect for his needs. Meeting his mystery woman and falling in love over late-night conversations, online dates with the camera turned off, and secret sharing, he was ready to commit. A first meeting at the bar reveals her to be the one woman he always regretted letting go of. 

Did fate bring them back together, or was it an unfortunate case of coincidence?

Tomas

O’Malley’s is bustling as I step inside. People are packed into the tables, booths against the wall, and the bar. My eyes scan the room eagerly. I feel like I’ve been waiting my entire life for this one moment. Chest tightening, I step further inside, clutching the single rose between my fingers. A red bloom rests on the counter at the end of the bar furthest for me. I take in the off-the-shoulder mustard yellow dress that contrasts with smooth brown skin. A hint of cleavage teases me with the merest glimpse of plump breasts in the v cut of the dress. I follow the slender neck up and meet the stunned, wide-eyed gaze of the one woman in my past who held a candle to L.

“Loretta?” I whisper

She rises abruptly. The legs of the stool scrap the floor. “You.” Her shoulder-length curls bounce around her face as she shakes her head. “You’re, T?”

“You. You’re, L?” It makes an insane kind of sense. I didn’t mistake her as being the one. It’s been here all along. The odds of things lining up to put us both here in front of each other is mind-blowing. The one-woman etched into my very soul is in front of me a vision in yellow and indignation. Her eyes flash with anger. The familiar spunk makes me smile.

“I’m gone.” She sidesteps me, and my chest clenches. Everything in me screams no.

I grab her arm. “Don’t leave Lo. I’ve been praying for this moment for years.”

She peers at me over her shoulder. The pain in her gaze guts me. “You expect me to believe that.”

“Yes, because it’s the truth. I’ve always regretted the way I handled things—.”

Turning to face me, she shakes her head. “We’ve already tried this once, Tomas.”

“And yet here we are, against all odds.  It’s a sign.”

She exhales. “Give us a chance. Let me prove I’m not that self-centered prick with a chip on his shoulder. I can’t go back to days without hearing from my L.”

“Tomas. Sorry is nothing more than a five-letter word—.”

“That’s why I asked for the chance to prove it.”

“Dulzura.”

Her lids lower, and I know I’ve won. “How would we even do this?”

I stand up straighter. “Hello Lo, it’s nice to finally put a face with the name.”

“Just like that?”

“No.” I shake my head. “I know it’s going to be a rocky road, but you are worth it. You have to know you’ve become my everything, Dulzura.”

“Don’t say words you don’t mean.”

“I’m the same man you’ve spoken to nearly every day for the past six months. We have an unpleasant event in our past. But that’s not all we have.” I step closer. “I’m so sorry I hurt you, Lo.
