Jenna is a soldier. From an early age, she's been told to try harder, work longer, and be stronger, so she can't explain the emotion that draws her to the operating theater where her twin girls died during an emergency Caesarean. But an overheard conversation leads her to believe that her girls are actually alive. She knows she has to find them.

Zane and Rick are special agents for the government. They've been assigned to watch Jason's old apartment just in case Jenna returns. When Jenna actually turns up, she's suffering several bullet wounds. Desperately, they work to save her, unable to explain the instant emotional connection.
When she finally recovers and Zane and Rick are tasked to protect her and her girls, can they convince a woman who has never known love that they want more than just a little fun?

SOLDIER is an awesome new book in the Altered Destinies Series. The great chemistry between the characters, amazing plot, and sizzling sex scenes made it another hit for me!

Jenna is one sibling of the "lost children"--those siblings with extrasensory powers that we've gotten to know over the course of the Altered Destinies series--who actually is the on the side of the evil professor guy. She's never questioned him, until the day she found out that he stole her twin girls from her seven years ago.

Rick and Zane have been waiting to catch Jenna for months. They think that the chances of finding her in front of her brother Jason's old house is a long shot. So, imagine their surprise when she not only shows up there, but she's so badly injured she's going to die. The two men quickly save her life and don't know why she immediately means so much to them.

Just as the three of them are ready to make their relationship permanent, the unthinkable happens, and Rick and Zane have to fight to get the love of their life back.

I was waiting for this book because Jenna was so darn dastardly when she made her last appearance. I really wanted to get more of her story. She really had no clue what the world was like. She only knew what the evil professor guy told her, and she was at such a disadvantage. It made me like her a lot more knowing a bit of what she had been through and what she had missed being under the professor's control.

Zane and Rick were just yummy. They didn't understand the attraction to Jenna much more than she did, but they knew they wanted their girl and went for it. The intimacy and extreme sensuality between the three of them was off the charts, but the best part was that Jenna never lost that snark!

The plot didn't move along as much as it has in the previous books, but mainly focused on Jenna, Rick and Zane, which was a nice treat. I really felt that they got a chance to develop their relationship nicely. We also got a look at Jenna's daughters who seem to have powers just like the rest of the family.

SOLDIER is the fifth book in the Altered Destinies and continues the amazing plot lines, immense sensuality and great characters. I am really hoping that this isn't the end of the series. The story line was left open, but more than anything, I've had such a blast reading this series that I don't want it to end.
