Adam, Ethan, and Ryan aren't looking for women. They're looking for a woman. One woman they know will share their lives and their beds. They're losing hope they'll find her, that is until Adam discovers Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin. Adam knows she's the one the minute he holds her in his arms, and as soon as his brothers see her, they know it too. The only problem is convincing Holly of that fact - and protecting her from the danger of her past.

I would recommend this to someone who is looking for some, but not a lot of hot threesome action in a book. As long as they don't mind those scenes interspersed with woefully basic plot twists and flat, under-developed characters. I read this purely because I wanted something hot and steamy, and 1 chick + 3 dudes sounded like a good way to go. This book satisfied the same way popcorn does. In the moment it's filling, but ultimately you walk away still hungry. This book had some hot scenes, but I must be a big perv, because they 1) weren't as frequent as I would have liked and 2) they weren't as hot as other, standard sex scenes I've read in other books. And the narrator was crap, so that didn't help. I was hoping that, all things considered, I was going to feel like smoking a cigarette in bed after I finished listening. Not so much. I think I had to go back to another audiobook to get the bad taste out of my mouth.
Eh. If I recommend, it comes with a big Surgeon General Warning Label: This book will satisfy a craving, but will not satisfy an appetite.
I didn't find a lot of variety in his characters or in his narrator voice. But I guess not everyone can be Robert Petkoff.
Do not spend a credit on this book. Please only buy if you get a member discount.
Ardent reader of history, non-fiction, fiction, fantasy, sci-fi. Have a lot of audiobooks, but in all honesty, I prefer to read rather than listen. However, my daily hourly walk has become a pleasure with a good audiobook to listen to.
Its not my thing, and I dont think my friends would enjoy this stuff either, so I dont think Id recommend it, other than to bring the title up if we were broadly discussing the subject or the various writings of porn thats out there. I like to listen to or read books that teach me something or make me wonder or think about life in general. Ive read a few good romance with novels that do just that, and was curious enough to dive into this one. This book .... well. All I learnt was that an unconscious woman, a young virgin at that, all of a sudden can become hot property desired by 3 brothers (and in my innate curiosity about humans and things in general, I cant help but wonder ... does/could this really happen!? Can you imagine!? Heck, I cant. How could this possibly work out?!) without her even knowing about it at the time. This to me seems like a confabulated pornographic tale of Snow White with Prince Charming, only here she has THREE of the Charming Princes! All brothers. The whole premise made me feel a little uncomfortable, I must say. Apparently the story goes on in a further book in a storyline which makes me feel even more uncomfortable - she has their kids and they all live happily ever after. Really, what twaddle. For me personally, I just dont gel with this kind of writing. Im not anti-erotica or against stories with a sexual theme, but this book is just plain ridiculous. (IMHO). This is not romance, its porn, plain and simple, and I feel this *entire* series should be listed under the erotica section, not romance.
Its a dumb story. Just plain weird setup all round.
If that one guy said 'Im/we're not going to hurt you' one more time, I swear I was going to spit a spider. Aside from the boring repetition, I mean, its hardly a healthy situation that he wants this woman to be in, and I would say okay, so its not physical hurt, but what about emotional etc? And one very positive thing .. I found the narrator did a sterling job reading this. He handled everything and the entire subject matter with great aplomb. Well done!
I read Maya Banks' Colters' series some time ago and greatly enjoyed it. If you read many 'poly' stories, you will note that the majority fall into either the full on erotica (smut) category or erotica with a plot. I would categorize the Colters' stories as falling into the latter category-for the most part and would fully admit to having enjoyed the series.
If your feminist side absolutely cringes at the damsel in distress being saved by the alpha male(s) in a story, don't bother reading this title or any others in the series. I believe that whatever a person's views are on the matter are their own, and shouldn't be inflicted upon those that feel differently. I simply point it out so that there is no confusion before purchasing and/or reason for complaint thereafter.
The Colter brothers, like their fathers before them, believe that there is one woman out there who is meant to be theirs and that they will know it when they find her. They find her, half frozen, outside of their home, during a snow storm.
The plot is predictable but enjoyable. The narration greatly detracts from the story and makes it somehow 'less' than the experience of reading the title. If you read any of my other reviews, you will see that I have a real issue with poor narration and the lack of proper editing or production guidance. As an example, Holly is from the west coast, yet because the lead males in the story live on a ranch and ride horses, the narrator gave her a cheesy, country accent. The accent he landed on the guys wasn't much better. I wasn't aware that Colorado cowboys automatically gained a bad west Texas accent just because they landed their butts in a saddle but at least that inflection made sense. His narration actually does make Holly irritating and pathetic, which is a feeling I did not get when I read the story beforehand. It's actually such a detractor in this case that I would almost recommend reading this title instead of listening.
An extended epilogue is available for download (free I believe on Amazon) as an e-book. The title is 'Colters' Wife' and it picks up a few months after the end of 'Colters' Woman.' The next title in the series is 'Colters' Lady' and I believe that it is now or soon will be available on Audible. It involves, you guessed it, the three sons of Holly, Adam, Ethan and Ryan. I have not checked to see if it is the same narrator on the next book but, if it is, hopefully someone has provided some direction this time.
Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.
well this is a first for me. if you like a book with lots of really hot sex in it then this book will do it for you, just understand that the sex is with 3 partners at once! i was a bit shocked and mildly uncomfortable with it through out the entire book but the story that went along with it was good so i finished it. It's the first book in "Colter's Legacy so admittedly i'm now curious as to what is next?
The narration was fine.
This is the spiciest book I have ever listened to....I agree with everyone else that the story is not realistic however it is very good. There is suspense and fun. It is also very very naughty! If thought of multiple partners bothers you skip this book.
Read at least two books a week... like Faulkner and Hemmingway and books that have spiritual outreach like Eat, Pray and Love. I have read most of James Lee Burk's books. My favorite narrator is Will Patton. He did an incredable job with Charles Fraziers Cold Mountain and 13 Moons and James Dickey's "Deliverance"
Colter's woman is the most erotic book I have ever read!!!!
How one woman can care and love equally each of the brothers and form an intimate family
The ultimate fantasy
Could not put it down
I'm a fantasy book hoarder!! :-) I am a mother of two small beautful childeren and my books are my way of getting away for a little break!!!
Very good and steamy! The brothers sound hot but the whole idea of three men want to be with the same women not very realistic and the fact that they are brothers it just doesn't happen! It was well written and oh so good sex and the narrator was good too! I don't know I am VERY open minded about a lot of thing but this one was a little out there for me I don't know I think it was b/c they where brothers or what.
Leave off 2 men and write more story. I like this author usually and bought this book because of the description and author. Since it was Book 1, I thought nothing of 3 brothers. Thought the next books would be the 2nd brother's story. WRONG! Wonder what book 2 will be. Will not buy. Not into alternative life styles.
Like Elizabeth Lowell's next book. Dangerous Refuge
Found no problem.
2 of 3 men
Site needs to show "type" of book. I would never have bought this book if I had known the content.
Say something about yourself!
I love Maya Banks but this book was way too much smut for me. I guess I'm a one gal and one woman kind of reader. I had to fast forward through most of it. But I do like Maya just not this type of books.
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
It was hot I could give it that much. There were so many sex scenes, if not the deed itself than thoughts of it. It should be under erotica and not romance.
Characters were unrealistic. Heroine had the weak doormat kind off characteristic but wasn't strong enough to build a personality that I could relate to. Didn't a trait or something that could dignify her as the heroine. The hero(s) were better explained and a bit more distinct to relate to. But still weren't strong enough to stand out.
There were no plausible plots from the second they met down to the end.
Not a total disappointment though, I gave this 3 stars because I liked the writing, and the hot encounters. They were rather creative and imaginative (ahem ahem)
GET IT if your into hot group sex!
