Sci-fi action meets steamy paranormal romance in Gini Koch’s Alien novels, as Katherine “Kitty” Katt faces off against aliens, conspiracies, and deadly secrets. · “Futuristic high-jinks and gripping adventure.” —RT Reviews 

Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt had just finished a day on jury duty. When she stepped out of the Pueblo Caliente courthouse, all she was thinking about was the work she had to get caught up on. Then her attention was caught by a fight between a couple that looked like it was about to turn ugly.

But ugly didn't even begin to cover it when the "man" suddenly transformed into a huge, winged monster right out of a grade Z science fiction movie and went on a deadly killing spree. In hindsight, Kitty realized she probably should have panicked and run screaming the way everyone around her was doing. Instead she sprinted into action to take down the alien.

In the middle of all the screeching and the ensuing chaos, a hunk in an Armani suit suddenly appeared beside her, introduced himself as Jeff Martini with "the agency," and then insisted on leading her to a nearby limo to talk to his "boss." And that was how Kitty's new life among the aliens began...

Touched by an Alien is the thrilling first installment of the Alien novels.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* When Katherine “Kitty” Katt instinctively uses her Montblanc pen to slay an alien parasite after leaving the courthouse following some jury duty, she’s swept into a secret community of Armani-clad, superfast Alpha-Centaurians and gorgeous humans that is fighting a parasitic alien menace. The parasites turn emotional humans into a variety of horrifying, supervillainous monsters. Kitty is taken to a secret installation deep below New Mexico, where she discovers that her parents lead far more exciting lives than she had ever imagined. Traveling with empath and love-interest Jeff and crew to a remote location to battle a crowd of supervillains bearing hilariously unoriginal supernames, Kitty uses her iPod, an armored vehicle, hot water, and hairspray as weapons. This delightful romp has many interesting twists and turns as it glances at racism, politics, and religion en route. It will have fanciers of cinematic sf parodies referencing Men in Black, Ghost Busters, and X-Men. Meanwhile, readers who like the smart sf silliness of Douglas Adams’ Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy novels, Lois McMaster Bujold’s Vorkosigan Saga, Pat Murphy’s There and Back Again (2000), and A. Lee Martinez’s The Automatic Detective (2008) will find it distinctively different, for Koch’s humor is more in the vein of MaryJanice Davidson in her Undead series, but darned amusing, all the same. --Diana Tixier Herald
