"...great fun, with lots of quirky characters, witty dialogue, a bit of romance, some hot sex, and oodles of action." —Locus

Planning any wedding is hard enough, but Katherine "Kitty" Katt and Jeff Martini have a lot more to worry about than seating arrangements, because multiple inter-stellar invasions, Alpha Team in mortal peril, and inter-alien conspiracies are all on the guest list—and the gifts they've brought contain some explosive surprises.

The discovery that Martini is actually a member of the Alpha Centaurion Royal Family brings additional bad news—emissaries are on their way to see if Kitty's royal bride material. And they're not the only things coming from the Alpha Centauri system. Amazonian assassins, spies, alien beasties, shape-shifters, and representatives from the Planetary Council, combined with a tabloid reporter who's a little too on the mark, create a deadly situation for Kitty and the rest of Alpha Team. When the assassins strike far too close to home for anyone's comfort, Kitty realizes it's going to come down to more than throwing a bouquet—she's going to have to face an entire planetary consciousness and dethrone a monarch in order to make it to the church on time...

Alien in the Family is the thrilling third installment of the Alien novels.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Aliens, danger, and romance make this a fast-paced, wittily written sf romantic comedy." —Library Journal

"As charming and quirky as ever.... Equal parts tongue-in-cheek humor, romance, sci-fi and action adventure, this rare treat is filled with quick wit, although make no mistake, it is the wedding with all the trimmings that takes center stage in this wild ride." —Monsters and Critics

"Even though Alien in the Family may seem like a straight up comedy, there’s more here than meets the eye. Gini Koch makes sure to get a message across about acceptance in all forms, whether it’s someone religion, gender or sexual preference." —Book Fetish
"It's one hot, fast-paced, crazy romp, with plenty of humorous banter to go with the blood spatter and discussions of wedding dresses." —Locus

Library Journal
Marketing manager Kitty Katt (Touched by an Alien; Alien Tango) is set to marry the alien of her dreams, Alpha Centaurian Jeff Martini, until she discovers he is about to become Emperor of his home planet—and she is not precisely the girl his parents want as empress-to-be. The intrusion of Amazonian terrorists from outer space adds more trouble to an already tense family situation. VERDICT Aliens, danger, and romance make this a fast-paced, wittily written sf romantic comedy.
