Being the wife of the Vice President isn’t easy. Especially when your talents lie in kicking butt and rocking out…

Jeff and Kitty Katt-Martini find out just how easy it is for the wife of the Vice President of the United States to unintentionally insult an ally. Now they have to smooth things over with the Australian Prime Minister, pronto, or risk creating an international incident the worldwide anti-alien coalitions will be able to use to force Jeff to resign and the A-Cs to leave the planet.

But before Kitty can make things worse, a cosmic congruence and a little help from some powerful beings shoves her into another world -- one where she’s been married to Charles Reynolds for years and aliens don’t exist. She’s also landed in the middle of a huge conspiracy and is marked for death…but at least that’s business as usual.

Kitty’s not the only one confused, because the Kitty from that world has taken her place in this one. Now Alpha Team and the Diplomatic Corps have to make sure that no one spots that there’s been a switch, while keeping World War III from happening. And they have to do so while keeping this new Kitty in line, because she has views about what to do and how to it, and time is running out.

Can both Kittys save their respective days before it’s too late to go home to the universes they belong to? Or will one Kitty decide to keep the other’s life…forever?

  1. ^^ Aliens would be the monster most terrifying on my list ( and tchullu if it appear in a film which i absolutely don't know^^)
    thank you a lot for the giveaway

  2. Dracula ♡well most vampires (twilight is the exception vampires don't sparkle)

  3. Humans. Storybook monsters are so easy to spot! (And never have to be quite as creative to get the audience to scream.) bookwormpov (at) gmail (dot) com

  4. This has to be my all time favorite "The Monster from 20000 Fathoms. My grandmother took me to see it on a Saturday night when I was 5 or 6 years old.

  5. Definitely the Mummy! I watch that movie all the time, lol!

  6. I actually find humans more scary than most monsters, I can't watch films where there is a human psycho on the loose or it freaks me out. Give me aliens, vampires or movies like the mummy & I'm in though LOL

  7. I'm rather fond of Ginger from Ginger Snaps.

  8. I honestly can't choose between the Thing and Aliens! I remember watching those gleefully as a kid b/c I thought they were so "scary" :) Love Gini's books! Thanks for sharing!

  9. Dracula is my favorite movie monster. Thanks for the great giveaway!

  10. I am not that big of a fan of scary monster movies. So I am going to go with one that I liked from one of my favorite cartoons - Fern Gully: The Last Rainforest. Hexxus is the ancient spirit of destruction, voiced by the incomparable Tim Curry. Between him and Robin Williams along with the distinctive voice of Christian Slater, it is a great movie with a sappy but fun message.

  11. A great list, my top two would have to be Godzilla and Alien. Love both the series.

  12. I would have to say the Mummy. Loved those movies.

  13. I´m a softy so I go with the monsters in Jurassic Park =)
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Wednesday!

  14. I'm not certain...I love vampires - the horrible, scary kind, if I'm watching a scary movie. But I suppose my favorite monster would be those demonic entities that must be conquered. They truly terrify me.

  15. James and I both agree, that is a hell of a monster list. I would add just about any John Carpenter monster for mine (Big Trouble is a particular favorite of us both and James has an autographed photo of James Hong).


  16. I am truly torn between Godzilla and Dracula. It totally depends on my mood. And dragons - LOVE dragons

  17. Not my favorite but the creepiest. "It" , I hate the freaking clown!
