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 loved this book, the bits that got me where when hollie hides behind ethan indirectly trusting him. i loved all the tendernesses of the guys. this book is odd at first but so cute. id have the 3 brothers anyday. wow! I really did love the way all the boys were shown, well thought characters. I have read reviws that say this story is unbelievable, I disagree. I really felt like I could relate and connect with the charectors.
"A MENAGE FOR 4 - BUT BE WARNED"
If you're looking for a realistic plot - forget it (unless I'm seriously missing something) - 3 sexy hunky handsome brothers in a remote cabin in the wilderness stumble across an unconscious woman who turns out to be their soul mate.
However, if your looking for a HOT HOT HOT emotional listen that also has suspense thrown in then look no further. As their forefathers before them have done the three brothers all live in 1 cabin and share everything - including their woman. Its full of M/M/M/F action as well as M/F or M/M/F action too (something for everyone) and right from chapter 1 there was "a tightening and a swelling" going on - so be warned. This should go under eRotica but it was romantic and emotionally touching at times too.
Worth a credit? You know what I'm going to say.... blah blah blah I buy books under $10 and save my credits - but if it was a more expensive listen then I would have happily spent my credit as I love her books.
"OMG! OMG! This is a naughty one!"
OMG! This story was a naughty one! Three sexy brothers all willing to share one woman. Let’s just say they weren’t playing bingo together in this remote wilderness cabin. Whoa… steam is still coming off my earphones.
First I have to say you must check reality at the door with this book. If I were in this situation I would have been running far away from these crazy cowboys…but thankfully this is fiction (not reality). They are a little overbearing and at times I found the premise of 3 brothers involved in a ménage a little creepy. I kept thinking the story would have been a little more “believable” if all the brothers were shifters. (sigh) All that aside, I still enjoyed the story.
If you’re looking for a Super-HOT erotic book then look no further. If you need a little more romance before the hot and heavy sex scenes begin then this might not be for you.
"Finally on Audiobook!"
I was SO excited to see this story has finally made it into audiobook format! This is classic Maya Banks and in my opinion this series is her best work!! Holly is nervous to accept the love and sexual affection of three men (and lets face it, who wouldn't) but she quickly learns that each of them are willing to do anything to make her happy. Very sexy series with lots of hot love scenes. Don't listen if anal play or multiple partners upsets you. All others enjoy!!
When I read or listen to a book it's not to listen to a life like my own - but to be taken to another place far different from what I am used to. Colters' Woman was as far from my life as I could get but it was a hot fun fantasy. Though realistically I don't think I would have the time to be able to keep three men as happy as Holly did!
Colters' Woman isn't the greatest book I have listened to but it did put a smile on my face and a flush in my cheeks.
The wedding of course.
Ryan was my favourite character. He was sad and damaged but very gentle and caring.
No I don't think I could listen to eight hours of sex in one sitting .But yes of course there was more to this book - it did have a plot and a happy ever after.
As it has been said in other reviews - if you're not M/M/M/F or M/M/F/M or M/F/M/M or any other combination that three men and one woman can come up with then you might like to give this book a miss. But if you enjoy Maya Banks and need a little zing in your life then this book is a worth a listen.
"3 hot dudes what is there not to like :)"
this was actually the very first e-book i ever read, I was happy to see it in audio. I enjoyed reading it more than listening to it.
adam, he's the alpha dog and totally hot.
I didn't have a favorite, he did fine but i already had a preconceived notion of the characters, the voices in my head didn't match his :)
when Ryan and Holly got attacked. moved me but not in a sad way :)
I can't stand bad reviews on a book based on genre. Read the blurb before buying and get your vanilla behind out of erotica lol just saying
"Really? (enter eye rolling here)"
I'm usually a big fan of Maya Banks, this is my least favorite book of hers. I know she sometimes write about extreme sexual circumstances in some of hers book like "Exiled" but this was just ridiculous. I couldn't keep track of how many times I rolled my eyes.
So a rich unconscience virgin literally lands in the hands of 3 brothers that have all agreed to pretty much be in a polygamist relationship. The brothers all agree on site that Holly will be their wife/mate....while she is still unconscience ( lucky girl huh?) So within 30 minutes of Holly waking up she goes from innocent virgin to porn star being triple teammed by 3 brothers. (Eye roll) Then Holly has encounters with the brothers separately and they tell her they love her all like in the same day (eye roll) magically the brothers never get jealous of each other either. I only found the last 2 hours of the book entertaining when action events came into play. I would have given this book a higher rating if only the events were more believable and not just completely out of left field.
I would say pass on using a credit on this one, Maya Banks has better books then this one.
No one writes a romance novel like Maya Banks...just the right amount of romance, love, tense moments and steam. Love the characters she creates. LOVE THE FACT THAT A MAN DOES THE NARRATION. A woman just cannot do a man's voice...a man who is supposed to be masculine and passionate. When a woman does the voices...they sound like something from the Wizard of Oz. Thank you Maya...and please we need more of your books in audio....FAST!!!!!
"Polygomy in Reverse"
Absolutely. The entire series is well written, entertaining, and the premise is a new twist (for me) - a reversal of the usualy polygomy; instead of multiple wives, one wife has multiple husbands.
"LEFT ME BLUSHING...BUT ALSO WANTING!!"
Colters' Woman is probably my least favorite audiobook so far. I did not like the male narrator and the story while outlandish to begin with was even a little unrealistic in itself. The innocent virgin is not going to simply take on three men her first time and then wake up thinking this is a perfectly normal day with her husbands. I didn't mind the storyline but the characters could have been a little more realistic.
Probably not. I found that I definitely prefer female narrators for romance novels and his female voices were very coy and unrealistic. I also found that he had trouble keeping his character voices straight too. That did get better as the book went on.
Colters' Woman is about three brothers who have decided that they will commit themselves to a single woman. Holly the damsel in the story just happens to find herself unconscious outside their front door and when confronted with that prospect she seems to find it perfectly natural and is completely accepting. Yes the story is this outrageous. While I did enjoy the more suspenseful parts I really thought the story was lacking. The sex scenes were definitely HOT but I wouldn't recommend this book to anyone new to the romance genre. I prefer Maya Banks other books but I do think I will continue to read (listen) the series. The storyline in the books to follow seem a little more on pace with more traditional romance.
"Real Talk: I read this for the threesome"
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.
