Holly Bardwell is running from her past mistakes. Straight into the arms of the Colter Brothers. 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 don’t want a casual romp in the hay. They want the woman who will complete them. And they’re losing hope they’ll find her. That is until Adam finds Holly lying in the snow just yards from their cabin.

Adam knows she’s different the minute he folds her in his arms. But before he gets his hopes up, he knows he has to gauge his brothers’ reactions. Soon it’s evident, they all know the same thing. She’s the one. The problem? Convincing her of that fact.

Read an excerpt for Colters' Woman, in addition Maya Banks offers Colters' Wife as a free read on her website.

Colters' Woman grips the reader from the very first page. Holly is a runaway bride seeking refuge from her murderous husband, when she is found unconscious in a ditch by Adam. Adam, Ethan, and Ryan feel an instant connection to Holly and vow to protect her with their lives.
At first I was unbelieving of the situation (three brothers sharing one wife, and love at first unconscious site), but the further you read into the story the more you accept their lifestyle, through the brief but clever glimpse into their past.

The relationship between Holly, Adam, Ryan, and Ethan develops rapidly, but the author does a good job in relating their emotions and makes you believe that they are falling in love, and have been fated to be together. While all three men are to be her husband, the connection between Holly and Ryan seems to be the strongest, so I was surprised when Adam announces towards the end of the book that he will officially be her husband. This is one of the only things that I questioned about the author's choices. The only thought that I had was maybe she wanted to downplay the attachment between Ryan and Holly, or maybe it was as simple as Adam is the oldest. I don't really know, and no explanation is given as to this choice, but it bothered me. Then again if Ryan were to have been her legal husband, it may have made the premise of Holly married to all three less believable. I'm torn.

Nevertheless, Colters' Woman & Colters' Wife are a scintillating read! It has all the right elements: Adam the Alpha dominant, Ethan the sensitive and emotional lover, Ryan the identifiable wounded soul, sizzling hot love scenes, tender moments, meaningful relationships, suspenceful danger, and a HEA ending. My only complaint was that Colters' Woman felt unfinished, maybe this is why there is a short sequel "Colters' Wife". If you read Colters' Woman, please make sure you also read Colters' Wife (please see above for link). The free short novella brings a satisfying end to this story. You won't be disappointed!

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
