Touched by an Alien: Alien Novels, Book One

"...I was hooked from the first page, and felt downright resentful of dinner for making me put the book down." —Tempting Persephone

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.

Touched by an Alien, eh? What was I thinking?

I mean yeah, the cover artist – I’m talking about the whole series of books- is great, and call me a douche, but that’s the main reason I wanted to get my hands on this book so much. But Touched by an Alien??



And then the summary, which states a bunch... ...more

With a name like "Touched by an alien", it's no doubt that this book would be hilarious and unconventional, not taking itself seriously. Even the blurb was funny, I mean handsome aliens dressed in Armani suits? The book delivered lots of laughs, action, romance, and more.

Nothing could prepare me... ...more

This is a public service announcement for the skeptics:

I picked up this book from the library because the author is coming to Tucson Festival of Books in a few weeks and the reviews were overall good. I thought it might be just silly enough to be awesome. My bad.

Everything people loved about this... ...more

Ok, so first off based on the cover and the back description I wasn't expecting much.

I was wrong.

This book was not only surprisingly funny and fast-paced, it was semi-plausible and steamy.

I thought Kitty was going to be TSTL and that the romance was going to be by-the-numbers and blah blah blah b... ...more

Touched by an Alien by Gini Koch gets off to a running start when the protagonist, armed only with an expensive pen, attacks--and kills--a monster. Then it slows down to a walk for the next 150 pages while we learn about who the aliens are, why they're here, how they travel and where they live, b... ...more

I LOVE this cover! I a huge Daniel dos Santos fan after he did all the Mercy Thompson series covers and this is an awesome one. I’m glad to say that the content is just as good as the cover.

It’s just another ordinary day in Kitty’s life when out of nowhere a man comes out of his car in the middle... ...more
