Adam, Ethan and Ryan Colter are three brothers who are on a search for the perfect woman. One woman to share all their lives. They just never expected to find her lying in the snow outside their lodge, nearly frozen to death.

Her name is Holly and sheís on the run from her husband. She witnessed him murder a man on their wedding night and knew the only choice was to run, and run far. Fortunately, she came upon the Colters, a group of men who want to make Holly safe, secure, and one hundred percent theirs.

Will Holly find the love she has been searching for with the three Colter men? Can she accept that their union will defy convention, but will be just as loving and affectionate as the relationship sheís always dreamed of?

Coltersí Woman is a great example of sexy romantica. Itís a bit over the top, after all, it has three seductive leading men, but it doesnít become over the top ridiculous. Rather, Ms. Banks grounds the plot in a realistic, if overtly arousing, love story. Holly doesnít trust these men right away. That trust comes slowly throughout the book. Yes, she experiences some powerful intimate encounters with them, but she doesnít say those magical three little words too quickly. She takes her time to get to know them and understand what they want from her, and what she can contribute to their union.

An additional bonus is that each man is a fully fleshed out character of his own. They donít blend into each other; rather, Ms. Banks develops unique personalities, quirks and annoyances that characterize each man as an individual. Holly must learn to adjust to each personality on an individual basis.

Hollyís dire situation tends to fade into the background when these three characters are together. Itís the catalyst for what brought them together and while itís certainly a necessary part of the story, the true heart of Coltersí Woman is the growing love and emotion between the four characters.

Coltersí Woman is seriously sexy stuff. Seduction, sensuality and passion fairly pulse off the pages of the story. You can get your laughs and lust, plus your emotional connection in this searing love story.
