Alien in the Family by Gini Koch

Super-Being Exterminator Kitty Katt and the Alpha Centaurian she loves, Jeff Martini, should be finalizing their wedding plans. But that was before she discovers Jeff is in line to become Emperor back on his home world. Kitty knows she is everything a royal family wouldn't approve of, and is bracing herself for the worst. As it turns out, the royal family is just the beginning. Especially when extraterrestrial Amazonian terrorists are determined to start and end Kitty and Jeff's nuptial festivities with a bang.

 Unsurprisingly at this point really, I loved this book. Readers are treated to more of the smart mouth dialogue and action that made the first two such fun to read. I've got to hand it to Gini Koch though for creating a character in Kitty that is fun and lovable, even as she rides that line as the all-knowing yet somehow oblivious to her own charms, heroine. 

I've read many a series where a heroine can be fun and funny a couple books in but when later there's a complete lack of growth they get stale. Here we have a great cast of supporting characters that are growing as people right along with Kitty, the type of hilariously convoluted story line that Koch somehow always manages to make seem normal, and hot sex with romance.

What are you waiting for? Science fiction or not, don't miss out on this great book!
