When police officer Seth Colter sees the delicate, shabbily dressed beauty in line at the soup kitchen where he's serving, he's gut shot over the idea of her being on the streets cold and alone. More baffling is the dark, possessive instinct that tells him she belongs to him. For Lily Weston, home is a secluded nook in a back alley - until Seth offers her a place to stay. She's wary of his offer, but even one night out of the cold is too much temptation to resist. Seth is convinced Lily is his. The problem is, when his brothers lay eyes on her, the same primitive instinct comes roaring to the surface. The Colters never imagined they'd follow the unconventional path of their fathers, but they can't ignore their mutual need to offer Lily their protection - and their love. But before Lily and the brothers can forge a future together, they must heal the deep wounds of her past.

Devotee of multi-tasking, keen gardener and cross-stitcher. Now able to do both AND listen to stories at the same time. Bliss.
Colters' Lady follows the children of the characters in the first book of this series, 'Colters' Woman'. Seth encounters a homeless woman and is instantly smitten, as are his brothers when they meet her. Lily is living rough trying to forget a traumatic past, but also feels the instant connection.
This is another of Maya Banks more unrealistic romance novels where the men instantly know that they want to spend the rest of their lives with just one woman without knowing anything about her. Having said that, this story is pure enjoyable romance but it also tackles a very sad event that had me at times tearing up in both sympathy and empathy.
It isn't necessary to read Colter's Lady to know what is going on in this story; all characters are introduced and explained (although, that is a great book too and recommended). Worth a credit? Yes, but it is pretty cheap, so I'd say save your credit for more expensive offerings.
I'm a lover of books, both read and audible.
When I read the first book of this series, I was thinking to myself that this story is quite unbelievable. I am a huge fan of Maya Banks Highlanders’ series. Which is why I read book one and book two of the Colter Legacy. I still can’t grasp the idea of three men sharing the same woman, without jealousy or bickering and everything just comes together as normal. But then again, we read books (or listen to them) to get lost within a world not of our own. So keeping that in mind, I enjoyed listening to this book. I can do believe that the sex scenes in this book were a lot tender and emotional than the first book. The Colter men in book struggled with their emotions for Lilly more than the men in the first book. I was content with the ending of the book and the personal growth of Lilly by the end. I think she is a much stronger person at the end of the book.
Jeffery does a great job with the voices during this book. He knows when to add the right amount of emotion during the scene to pull you further into the book. I will be reading the next book, Colter’s Daughter.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
I did not like the weak lead lady. The reader is very good.
not her best, just oK. Started with good promise, then just faded.
good descriptions of the men.
No this was not worth my time or money. will not get the last story of callie.
Maya banks really has a knack for writing "homeless rags to romance" lit (e.g. MB's 'Fever'), and I am not complaining because this one was hot, and I enjoyed every humor- filled, semi-unbelievable but touching moment. The plot is a bit far fetched but you gotta love the idea of three super hotties cherishing the woman they love. I enjoyed the first Colters installment and although the premise of this one in the same as the first, there are differences that made this second story better in my opinion. It's also a quick listen so it gets to the heart of the matter immediately. I had this in my library for awhile, so I was pleasantly surprised once I finally listened. Definitely a recommended series!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
If you liked book 1 then this is a must - as the next generation of Colters manage to find that one woman they're all prepared to share - a homeless mentally and emotionally scarred woman
As usual with MB's books it's a very very hot listen with characters from the previous story getting very much involved in the love lives of their sons and the woman they brought home. Then passions ignite as they each have to come to terms with their emotions at having to share one woman together with finding out her heartbreaking history as it is slowly revealed.
Worth a credit? Yes, if you're in the mood for a hot listen that's pure escapism, then you can't go wrong with MB books but if you're looking for a more realistic traditional romance listen perhaps you should look elsewhere.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Like the first book in the series i found this a fasted paced and sexy read. A believable story? Yes - one must remember this is fiction and i just love fantasy land. I've already got Colters' Daughter (3rd book) downloaded and looking forward to listening to the continued story. If you ever fantasised about having 3 men at once well this hot series is for you. :)
I have very much enjoyed this series. It isn't perfect. The premise is pretty out there, even for poly-amoric relationships. But I love the steam and the characters. One of my favorite things about this series is Freddie Bates' narration. He's a master at providing female characters that ring as true as the male ones. I want more from him.
The book was ok. The female lead is a whimp and inconsistent. All in all its a passable way to spend time. Not as well developed as the first book
Say something about yourself!
Yes, I find the characters more developed in this story than the first story
I find the narrator is better in this book than the first one although I still don't really like his female voices but he's the only male narrator i've listened to so far, for all I know all male narrators are like that but I do find it's easier for women to portray male voices than men portraying female voices.
Good Books Don't Promote Violence
The second in a series where women have multiple husbands who love and adore them. The part about the woman being homeless for 3 years before finding her "men" was a real stretch but overall the story was a interesting fantasy for women.
"sweet story of unconditional love"
yes it was a cute story it had me yelling at the book in points, obsorbed in the story. although it was a sweet add on I liked book 1 best. these characters where not as well developed, there werent so many tender moments although a few, it was more about the wider range of family. I did like it though and yes I did cry near rhe end. grate story and performance mostly.
