3 Paranormal Romances Featuring Aliens: Guest Post and Give@way by Milda Harris


Paranormal Romances Featuring Aliens 

Paranormal romances usually make you think of vampires, werewolves, and ghosts, but aliens don't usually come to mind. Still, there are some pretty great paranormal romances involving aliens from YA books to more adult fiction.

The Host by Stephanie Meyer - This one is probably one of the most popular alien paranormal romances right now, coming right after Meyer's super successful Twilight series and it's meant for adults.  I've only just started reading it and it's really fascinating since the main character is basically two characters in one body. I can't wait to check out the movie and see how they do it! In the meantime, here's the premise: The earth has been taken over by aliens who use humans as hosts. In the case of The Wanderer, though, her host's mind, Melanie, refuses to let The Wanderer completely take over. Instead, Melanie fills The Wanderer's mind with memories of her love, Jared...

Roswell High Series by Melinda Metz starting with The Outsider (#1) - I was a super fan of the TV series of the same name, but the books started it all! Set in Roswell, New Mexico (of course), one day high schooler Liz is shot in the stomach and a classmate of hers named Max, heals her. Aliens, romance, and suspense ensue. It's great!

I Am Number Four by Pittacus Lore - John Smith is a teenage alien hiding from a group of terrifying aliens bent on destroying him and others like him.  There's action, there's romance, and there's aliens! Okay, maybe there's more action, but there is romance! Oh, and if you watch the movie, it stars the very good looking Alex Pettyfer.

Your Planet or Mine? by Susan Grant - This one just sounds like a fun romantic adventure read.  A nine year old named Jana rescues a space alien stuck in the tree outside her bedroom window and gets her first kiss. Twenty-three years later the alien returns to warn the girl he could never forget... Cute! Fun!

Red Handed (Teen Alien Huntress) by Gena Showalter - The premise: Phoenix Germaine is sent to reform school except it turns out that she's actually been recruited to the elite Alien Investigation and Removal agency and her new instructor is drop dead gorgeous guy who was there the night she got into the trouble that put her into the situation. Romance, thrills, and action make it a fun ride! Gena Showalter also has an adult alien huntress series starting with Awaken Me Darkly (Alien Huntress #1).

Obsidian (A Lux Novel) by Jennifer L. Armentrout - Katy Swartz moves to a new school her senior year, but things look up when she meets her neighbor, Daemon, at least until he starts talking. He's infuriating.  That, and it turns out he's an alien with a galaxy of enemies! I always love it when the romantic lead is infuriating - it makes the romance so much more fun!

And, of course, my book!

Doppelganger by Milda Harris  - Citrus Leahy is having a really bad day. First she's late to school. Then she runs into the girl who drives her nuts because she always calls her Orange instead of her name. To cap it all off, when Citrus finally makes it to class, she sees herself already inside. Wait. What? Citrus Leahy has a doppelganger! It's probably aliens taking over the world and her life has just turned totally upside down. Goodbye, normal. Hello, paranormal. Luckily, her crush Aedan has the exact same problem!

MILDA HARRIS has a dog named after a piece of candy (Licorice), was once hit by a tree (seriously), and wears hot pink sunglasses (why not?).
