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.

She shuddered in his arms, her heart pounding. She wasn’t sure she’d be able to stop if this kept up any longer. But then, mercifully, like the sky right after the sun finally sank below the mountains, the fiery red surge of the kiss cooled to soft streams of violet, blue, pink. His hand rose to cradle her head, his fingers firmly supporting its weight, and everything slowed as he deepened the kiss, pulling her down with him, setting her feet back onto the ground.

Sunny had thought by now she’d experienced every known variety of kiss. Not so. This kiss was a novel species, an unidentified element, an uncharted star she would place her finger over in the night sky and proclaim, This, this one is mine.

When they finally parted, breaths coming heavy, foreheads touching, he said, “Sorry about that. I couldn’t help myself.”
