ALWAYS LEARNING

PEARSON

For all the readers who have loved and supported
the Colter series from the start.
This is for everyone who wanted “more”
and wanted to see Lily further into
the happy relationship she deserves.

ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

I can honestly say that I never intended to make
Colters’ Woman
into a series. Colters’ Legacy happened because readers asked for more. And they kept asking. They persevered, and so I decided to write
Colters’ Lady
and
Colters’ Daughter
. But even then, readers wanted just a little more. They wanted to see Lily with her three husbands who adored her and they wanted to see her happy and safe. They wanted to see Max and Callie a little further down the road and not so raw from their volatile relationship. But most of all, they wanted to see the original Colters, Holly, Adam, Ethan, and Ryan, and see once more the foundation of the entire Colter family. And that even after so many years, the love that was forged between Holly and her three very special men endures. In so many ways,
Colters’ Woman
had a huge impact on my career as a writer, and I can
only credit my wonderful readers with that. You guys have made so much possible for me. Every story that’s come after. Every opportunity I’ve had to continue providing you with stories that I hope give you a few hours of enjoyment. I owe all of that to you.
