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

Blurb:

She lost her music.

Then she lost everything else. Without her band and her best friend, Annaleigh Mackey decides it’s time to focus on her career.

Then her surly new boss crashes into her life, and she finds herself distracted in ways she can’t resist. Maxwell Jackson is a commanding presence in the boardroom, but that’s nothing compared to the way he’s dominating her thoughts.

He’s starting over. New city, new job, and no distractions.

Then his new assistant walks through the door, a beautiful diversion from his plans. Maxwell Jackson doesn’t want to spend his time unraveling Annaleigh’s secrets, and he certainly shouldn’t want her. Not in the boardroom, on his desk, or against his office door. But he can’t stay away, and she’s fast becoming his obsession.

As their passion consumes them, old secrets surface that could ruin everything. Will Annaleigh and Maxwell be strong enough to make it through? Or is this just another office fling, destined to fail?

ARIA

I’m obsessed with love stories and yeah I know they aren’t always real and life isn’t a fairy tale. That doesn’t stop me from wishing and hoping that Mr. Perfect will come along and rescue me from my normal, boring life.
Then I met him… Gorgeous, young, sex in a suit, every woman’s wet dream. For one night, he’s mine. Toe curling orgasms a plenty and he knows how to deliver. There’s just one problem. A big one. He’s my boss. You’d think I hit the jackpot. Over the desk spankings, maybe a little rendezvous in the file room, kinky office sex. Wrong!

He’s arrogant, cocky and demanding. He’s also the biggest playboy and most eligible bachelor around town. I make a plan to avoid him unless it is work related. I try. One hot, forbidden kiss changes our relationship.

My brothers don’t want me with him. His mother is obsessed with him staying single.

All I know is that I want to be with him no matter what. Does happily ever after really exist? Or am I dreaming?

Maybe I should’ve stuck to my books.

SIMON

Left to raise my daughter alone when my wife was killed, I vowed never again to let a woman into my heart. Women, yeah I love women. Especially when they’re eager to fall into my bed. They only ever get one night.

Until her…the hot librarian in the lift. The one whose lips left me begging for more. One night, our passion exploded. One night she drove me crazy. She was gone before I woke.

Too bad she’s my Personal Assistant. I don’t screw the crew. Ever. No matter how hard I try to steer clear. Her eyes are seductive, her lips so kissable I need to taste every inch of her…again. Forbidden kisses, flirtatious words, sexy touching. One problem. My Mum. She doesn’t want me moving on from my deceased wife, doesn’t believe in me choosing another to love and will do anything it takes to break us apart.

I’ll be with her no matter what anyone says. I run my happily ever after.

I found my princess and refuse to let her go.

Single.
People make it sound like it’s a bad thing. When you’ve been in a relationship that almost destroyed you, being single is a gift. You’ve been given your freedom back. You learn to love yourself again.
The moment that happens, when you finally allow yourself to feel worth of love, someone amazing walks in your life and makes you want to throw caution to the wind. And for this man… that’s exactly what I would do.
Of course, it couldn’t be easy. My past has to walk back into my life, my job, and make me question everything, especially my worth.
Rumors begin to fly around the office causing tension in my new relationship. The people who really know me know the truth, but the gossip is more interesting.

Delicate Rumors – A Dixon Family Novel (May 11, 2020)

It was supposed to be one night.
After watching Ryder fawn all over his new skank, I needed more than booze to help me forget what I’d lost. What I’d thrown away.

So when one night turned into a week spent rolling around in the sheets, I knew I was in trouble.
Everyone would find out what I’d done. They’d be able to see through my thick facade.
Rumors will fly. Unless… maybe I can spin the truth.

We were happy once and we can be happy again.

So that’s what we’re going to do. Get remarried. Get back to the people we once were.
Easy, right?

Defensive Rumors – A Dixon Family Novel (June 22, 2020)
I’m a horrible person.
Who goes to a wedding with one date and leaves with another?
Me, that’s who. Hence why I’m a horrible person.
I wasn’t the only one leaving my date behind that night, though.
Maybe that’s why I’m attracted to Zane. He’s irritating to the point I want to strangle him. He refuses to apologize for being himself. He’s rude and brash and so damn sexy.
The moment I saw him I knew he was trouble. When he laid the challenge on the table, I should have run.
In a way I did. I ran straight into his arms and latched on to his lips.
It was a moment of weakness. Of lust. Of pure passion.
A moment I’m sure the rumor mill would have a field day with. The problem is, no one’s saying anything.

Ryder and I sit on the floor in his office eating Thai food and sorting through each stack of papers piece by piece. Once we’ve created two new stacks that he seems happier with, I relax back on my elbows and stare up at his clock. It’s after nine o’clock. It took us three hours for him to decide what he wanted to hold onto and what he could live without.
It would have taken a lot less time if he wasn’t so damn sexy as he ate. More than once he caught me staring at him, at his lips, as he pulled the fork from his mouth. My cheeks would heat, I’d go back to eating myself or sorting through papers. He never called me out, but he didn’t need to. I knew I was caught. The smirk on his face was proof.
When he reached over me suddenly, my body went on high alert. He was stretch across my lap, his chest brushing against my knees. I wonder if he felt me shudder or heard me inhale deeply, holding my breath until he was sitting next to me again.
Doing the best I could to focus on our task, I took a huge bite of noodles, pulling them into my mouth slowly. Ryder made a noise, and as I looked over at him, I found him staring at me. At the noodle hanging from between my lips. I sucked it in and stared at him, unable to look away from his heated stare.
Visions of him taking me right there, on top of the papers we’ve been working to sort. Passionate but rushed. Needy hands everywhere.
Closing my eyes and shaking my head to clear away my dirty thoughts, I’m surprised to find Ryder only inches from me when I open them. Frozen in place, unable to move or speak, I watch as he raises his hand, taking my chin in his palm as he runs the pad of his thumb over the corner of my mouth.
“There was sauce,” he explains breathlessly.
What do I say to that? Thank you? Okay? Nope. I say nothing. I relish the feel of his hand against my face, resisting the urge to suck his thumb in my mouth. I want to, my body wants me to, and my thoughts run wild with possible outcomes.
