Can their love give her the strength to overcome the tragedy in her past?

Colters' Legacy, Book 2

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.

Not as bad as I'd feared. You have to be able to put aside a lot of questions, not think "Well why didn't they do that?" and "How come they..." and "What do they see in..." and "How could she..." and just let yourself be entertained by a story where women (or should I say the woman) is placed on a pedestal and worshipped, doesn't have to lift a finger (unless she wants to) and her every whim (including sexual whims) is met by three hunky brothers whose only goal in life seems to be to please the ...more
This story is about the second generation of the Colters, after Colters' Woman, Colters' Wife, and Callie's Meadow. The heroes are the Colters' three sons. The oldest son sees our heroine, Lily, in a soup kitchen and take her home since she is homeless. Unfortunately, his two younger brother see Lily too and want her also. They soon realize that they might have to follow the family tradition (practiced by their parents and grandparents) of sharing one woman.

Bottom line, this was just okay. The p
I enjoyed this book. I know it's not perfect by any means, but it just worked for me. Sometimes that happens.

Series Note:
This book is a sequel to "Colters Woman"...I wouldn't say its necessary to read that one first, but I think it'd be helpful.

Some thirty years after there parents set on a path of an unconventional relationship (one woman, three brothers), their three sons are making their way in the world, never planning to follow in their parents' footsteps. But then Seth, a Denver co
Rated 4.5
I couldn't have been more excited when i was offered the chance to read Colters' Lady by Maya Banks. I'm very much on Team Colter

Yes this book is has the same premise as CW did, three Colter men and one woman. But that is where the similarites end. The one thing i thought was lacking in CW was how the men decided to share a woman in the first place we never saw that, and in Colter's Lady i got it. None of the brothers had prepared for falling for the same woman despite having three fat
Ugh I don't know why I tried the sequel. This series is not for me.

Not as bad as i thought it would be. I'm actually happy with this book. Neglecting by beliefs and how wrong I thought of what the hell they did, the writing and the story this time captivated me, and I could connect to them more. I'll just state some faults with the book and leave the good parts for you.
Apparently three grown men in a relationship with one women is perfectly normal. I mean like they don't even act like it isn't. Everyone in the book is perfectly okay with it! Like seriously at

With the first book, Colters’ Woman, it felt as if the sex scenes took over and left the remaining plot threads unwoven. I wanted to feel like the plot and the resulting sex actually went together, instead of the book relying on the foursome. The promise was there for the first book, and I wanted to hold onto that promise.

Lily has been living on the streets in Denver for three years. She's just trying to survive and forget the sins of her past. That’s when Officer Seth steps in to save Lily. Imm

Read the first one but just couldn't buy it this time around. Gotta give me some reason 3 brothers would not each want their own woman other than "just because."

I am not a fan of menage. But Mayas books are written so well and I am loving them. The stories are sweet and poignant and loving. Thank you Maya!!!

While Seth is serving he see’s Lily and he’s horrified 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.

Maya Bank’s ‘Colter’s Woman’ was the first erotica story I ever read, so I have a bit of a soft spot for it.
In that first book Maya Banks introduced three very unusual brothers. Adam, Ethan and Ryan Colter were three men who grew up in a family with three dads and one mother – and that family dynamic stayed with them into adulthood and became their ideal family unit. Then Holly stepped into their lives to fill the role of wife for the three Colter’s.

This sequel, ‘Colter’s Lady’ is set a few year

2.5 stars. I'm almost wondering if I shouldn't go back and give the first book 2 stars, so I can keep this one at a 3.

In a way, I liked this book less than the original because there was nothing new. In a way, I liked this book better than the original because the story was less annoying than the first one. Holly from book 1 was extremely grating. Lily wasn't much better but at least she had a little bit of a spine.

I expected more of the Colter Brothers and Holly, but I got Colter Brothers 2.0 as their kids are all grown up and in the world on their own. This easy to get into read flowed just as effortlessly as the previous installments. While mom and the dads beam at their offspring following in their footsteps they also provide a very strong bridge from the earlier books with their unusual family structure.

3 Stars - Erotic Romance - I've enjoyed this series but I have issues with the narrator. His female voices are too soft and sugary sweet for me, which grates on my nerves a little.
♥ Miss Dominus ♥
Obviously, it grew better. The Colters' series I mean. Doesn't mean this is my fave you don't need to read the first one and go straight here. I still think you have to read the first one because well... it's a freaking series and you start from the first. Plus it's really good. But this one is better.
The problem with people is, when a story has been tagged as about sex or eroticism they all have their judgments already. Some just looked and looked for the sex and some doesn't even give it a cha

Maya Banks writes menage stories very well. Three brothers and one homeless lady, none of them expected to be in a multi-partner relationship. Seth, Michael and Dillon each fall in love with Lily when they meet her, and she returns their feelings. I liked the characters and enjoyed their journey to happines
Seth is on leave from his job as a Denver policeman. He was shot a few weeks ago on the job and is healing. He helps out at a food kitchen. One day he sees this woman there. She is so beautiful. He wants her. He follows her to where she lives - two cardboard boxes. What happened to this woman that she has to live on the street? He convinces Lily to come home with him.
He cannot believe that he has these immediate feelings for her. He kisses her and it's electric.

So this book was different than the first. Mainly the three brothers (sons of holly) didn't see themselves following in their fathers footsteps. I'm not really sure how they decided "hey I'm okay with my brothers being naked and screwing the same woman" but they figured it out and all became hopelessly in love with lily. There was no suspense action like in the first. This was more drama than anything. Lily had a past and it was more an event that broke her heart and reason for living and caring ...more
While volunteering at a soup kitchen, Seth Colter experienced a magnetic pull so intense he invited homeless, exhausted Lily Weston to his home for the night hoping she would get the sleep she desperately needed. Her sadness shocked him to a degree he knew he must do everything within his power to ease her burden. Feeling tentative, Seth introduced Lily to his brothers fully aware they may fall under the same gravitation pull. Confused and feeling unworthy Lily was hesitant at first to accept th ...more
I like the sons, but not as much as I liked the dads.

I wasn't expecting them to be hesitant about falling for the same woman. But all three of them balked. Thank goodness Lily was willing open to all three. She was the glue between the three brothers from the very beginning.

She brought Seth home, to his family. She forced the brothers to coexist together. They wanted her, she wanted they made the necessary decisions (despite sacrifices) to make it all work. Proved how much they loved
Homeless Lily gets taken in by Sexy-Seth and then meets his brother, Sexy-Michael....and other brother, Sexy-Dillon. 3 hot guys all want her, and she wants them....what's a gal to do?? Luckily, these hotties are no stranger to the idea of 3 guys sharing 1 lady---their dads and grandfathers all did it too. Sure, they never expected to follow in their footsteps, but sharing seems better than the alternative: losing Lily.

One thing I liked about this book was its (relative) realism regarding the men

(June) 3.5* Not quite as good as the original - nice to catch up w/Holly and her men, but their sons are just not quite as intense. Of course, these books are so over-the-top-never-gonna-happen (but if they did seems to me they can only happen in a small town in the middle of nowhere!) - but they are fun - and hot!

Colters' Lady

"Once is enough, twice is too much."

The story is basically exactly like the first book which was Colters' Woman.

So, all the stupidity, craziness, weirdness and unrealistic parts of the first book is also present here though I guess it was toned down a little bit.

The difference is Lily, the leading lady in this book was a homeless person. Aside from that, it was exactly like the first book.

Though compared to the first one, this book is a bit better.

So if you hated the first book,
Why only 3 stars?

Well,there was just to many similarities with the first story. You could basically change the names and a few circumstances and viola! same story.

Besides that it ended up being okay. I had a hard time getting into at first, but once it got going...

I have to say I love the way the men in this family take care of their women. MEN ~ read and take notes. Lol.

I am now looking forward to the next, and am hoping it's about Callie. That girl is definitely hiding something and I am eage
4.5 stars

I like this book more than the first one. It seems more realistic that the brothers are not sure what to do and whether it would work. I also like that there is no life-threatening incidents or injuries to prove their love.

It would be more appreciated if the writer gave more info about the heroine background. It seems strange that she really have no one, neither friends nor relatives.

The book plays out the love and emotion very well. I like that they all love and understand each other
Sherry Haynes
This is another amazing book by an amazing author. She has managed to touch on subject matter that no one else has the courage to speak about or even add to a story line. It is important to read the first book in the series to understand the relationships and the bond that the family members have with each other. Plus if you can't handle multiple partners in a relationship then this series isn't something you want to attempt to read. Definitely a page turner for me and one I will recommend to ma ...more
This is just too odd for me. A cop meets a cute homeless lady and is instantly so smitten he takes her home. The cute homeless lady never seems to worry that he has nefarious designs. Then the cop's brother, a veterinarian, sees her and is also instantly smitten. Then the cute homeless lady flees, only to get minorly injured in a "turf war between drug dealers". In downtown Denver, Colorado. I am not saying that absolutely could not happen, but it's not like Denver is going to show up on a remak ...more

So far I have a lot of fun reading Colter's Legacy series.
This book was not different at that. I enjoy it and was very much interested on what happen with Holy's children and how things develop. They were not expecting to follow their parents way of living and havind just one woman but it happen to them and it tourns out to be good.
What I didn't like was the endind. I was expecting something a little bit different, but that's for me and not for everyone :)
As soon as I can I will start with Colte
This was good but I think too short you didn't really fall in love with all the characters and I think it's just cause there wasn't enough interaction of togetherness it felt more like they had separate relationships but not I gave it four stars because it was sad and touching what Lilly had endured and that got to me and if I'm feeling emotional during a book then you've don'e something right so I upped my rating because I am loyal to Maya banks I just wish she would need write less than four h ...more
After living on the streets for 3 years, suffering from the most WORST possible thing a woman should ever have to go through, you would understand why a woman would accept the invitation from a complete stranger to stay with him... though it did help that the stranger was a cop, and a devastating handsome one at that.

This book was a little better then the original... in the original one the three men have known their whole life that they'd share a woman, so they were not surprised when it happen
