Jason has been working undercover to try and rescue two of his sisters. He's never met them, but he knows that they were bred in an attempt to create superior humans. When he learns a young child was stolen from her mother, Dana—another of Jason's sisters—he finds a way to return the baby to her family but blows his cover in the process.
Cody and Bec have spent the past year trying to recover from bullet wounds sustained in the line of duty. Happy to be called back onto active duty, they manage to extricate Jason from his self-appointed undercover mission.
But when they find Jason injured, without a place to stay or a way to support himself, they invite him into their lives and discover there is more to the man than even he knows. Can love and respect grow amid tragedy, fear, and unusual behavior?

The Altered Destinies series has me hooked! STOLEN, the latest book in the series, is a continuation of the suspense, steamy eroticism, and fantastic plot that keeps me coming back for more.
STOLEN is the story of Jason--the brother of Theresa, Dana, Alana (and others we haven't really met yet)--who has been working uncover to get his siblings out of the labs at which they have been held captive. Jason's cover is blown when the man behind the experimentation steals Dana's newborn daughter and he has to get the infant out of the lab. He is now without a purpose, a job, and a family as he feels like an outsider with his sisters. He has no idea how his life is about to change.
Cody and Bec have been partners in the agency, and they are both on leave while they are recovering from injuries sustained on the job. They are also just discovering their feelings for one another but don't know how to go about dealing with them. After rescuing Jason and Dana's daughter, they invite the man into their home. Bec soon realizes that she has feelings for both men, and they have feelings for her. And Jason sees the possibility of the family he's always dreamed of having.
Ok, let me just say that this whole series is just fantastic. STOLEN is the fourth book in the series, and while it can easily be read as a standalone, I have loved how each book has progressed in sequence. The plot is so fantastic. With tons of suspense and lots of action, I read from beginning to end because I wanted to know what happens next.
Steamy sex was definitely present in this book as with all of the books in the Altered Destinies series. I liked the relationship development because although Bec and Cody had been partners, they weren't in a relationship prior to having Jason join them. Actually Jason's presence moved their relationship along.
Besides our main trio, we also get a glimpse at the old trios as well as a glimpse of who we will be meeting in the future. I love that we get to see life after the HEA for the previous trios in the later books, it's like getting a bit of an epilogue for them.
I have no idea when and how this series is going to end, but I really hope it's no time soon. With the great plot, intense action, steamy eroticism all with a paranormal twist, STOLEN, just like the other three books in the series, is a definite hit!
