“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.”

I LOVE this cover! I am 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 of the street and transforms into a Fugly creature and starts attacking people.
Without no thought or reason Kitty just springs into action and kills the monster with nothing less than a Mont Blanc pen. From that moment on our heroine’s life is changed forever.
A group of extremely good looking men show up and introduce her to a world that she never knew existed. They are from the “Agency”, a group of Humans and Alpha Centauri Aliens that work together to protect our planet.
Touched by an Alien is none stop action and some awesome funny moments that got me laughing out loud like crazy. Some very funny and silly moments, I might add =)
"Relax, we're not taking you out here to kill you and bury your body off the beaten track."
"It's just stop two on the UFO tour," Martini added. Most women want to marry the first alien they've met after seeing the crash site."
"I killed the first alien I met," I reminded him.
"Nope, that was a superbeing," Martini corrected cheerfully. |None of us A-C are superbeings, other than in the sack."
I also loved the romance in this book. Right from the second Jeff Martini meets our heroine, Kitty, he decided she is the woman for him. That might sound weird but he is an alien and they do tend to be a bit different hehe. Their interactions are some of the best in the book and I can’t wait for more Martini and Kitty.
"As an example, I can make love fore twelve hours straight," Martini offered. "However, I've never tried to make it go faster, so maybe that's not a good example."
"But, so far, your most winning argument."
The secondary characters are just as amusing as well, all the “Agency” members and Kitty’s family both, just got me cracking up.
He Grinned. "I'd like lots of kids," he said to Mom. "But we're still discussing it."
She sighed. "Ask her how often she has to get new fish before you make a final decision."
Touched by an Alien is fun from start to finish and definitely my list of the Top Reads of 2010. The first person narration is very well written and the action is gripping and the most fun I’ve had with a book in a while!
If you’ve got a funny bone and likes a great Sci-Fi / Fantasy read with a lot of action and a great romance, you need to check out Touched by an Alien!
