Alien in the Houseby Gini Koch
Synopses & Reviews
How can a sexy marketing manager join forces with an Alpha Centauri male in Armani to save the planet-using hairspray, a Mont Blanc pen, and rock n' roll?
She's Touched by an Alien
Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt steps into the middle of what appears to be a domestic dispute turned ugly. And it only gets uglier when the man turns into a winged monster, straight out of a grade-Z horror movie, and goes on a killing spree. Though Kitty should probably run away, she springs into action to take the monster down.
In the middle of the chaos a handsome hunk named Jeff Martini appears, sent by the "agency" to perform crowd control. He's Kitty's kind of guy, no matter what planet he's from. And from now on, for Kitty, things are going to be sexy, dangerous, wild, and out of this world.
"The variously dark and cheerful seventh installment of Koch's Alien series (after Alien vs. Alien) is a crowd-pleaser. Kitty Katt-Martini (a human) and her husband, Jeff Martini (a stunningly handsome Alpha Centaurian), are now Alpha Centauri's ambassadors to the U.S., as well as the parents of one-year-old Jamie, whose accelerated development is outstripping the norms for both races. Following the catastrophic attacks that Kitty called Operation Destruction, Kitty and Jeff are hoping to settle down to a less dangerous if still hectic life. But a tragic assassination attempt and the discovery that every attack and conspiracy may have a single mastermind set in motion a chain of events that will reveal a 'dead' enemy is still living and risk the A.C.s being forced into exile or war with Earth. The best hallmarks of the series — frequent banter, head-first dives into action, tangled webs, and Kitty's snark — are in full force again. Agent: Cherry Weiner, Cherry Weiner Literary Agency.

Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini have learned the ins and outs of Washington politics, not to mention how to prevail in intergalactic war and foil dangerous plots. So when the newly elected Representative from New Mexicos 2nd Congressional District dies under mysterious circumstances while at the Centaurion Embassy, its up to Kitty and the rest of the Diplomatic Corps to fstop the killer, before the rest of the U.S. House of Representatives become casualties, particularly the replacement Representative for New Mexicos 2nd District—Jeff Martini.
Alien in the House is the thrilling seventh installment of the Alien series.
Being newlyweds and new parents is challenging enough. But Jeff and Kitty Martini are also giving up their roles as super-being exterminators and Commanders in Centaurion Division while mastering the political landscape as the new heads of Centaurion's Diplomatic Corps. Enter a shadowy assassination plot and a new set of anti-alien conspirators, and nothing will ever be the same...
About the Author
Gini Koch lives in the American Southwest, works her butt off (sadly, not literally) by day, and writes by night with the rest of the beautiful people. Touched by an Alien, the first in her Alien/Katherine "Kitty" Katt Series, received a starred review from Booklist and was named one of Booklist's Top Ten adult science fiction and fantasy novels of 2010. Alien Tango released December 7, 2010, with Alien in the Family releasing April 5, 2011, and Alien Proliferation in Winter 2011. Gini started writing as an excuse to stay up late playing on the computer while listening to rock music and mooning over pictures of hunky men. She's thrilled all that drooling has finally paid off.
