From the Author
The Brethren of the Coast and Brethren Origins Series is a connected collection of books that are written to stand alone. They can be read in any order. Each work contains a full story, with NO cliffhangers. And a word of warning, I write about love and sex, so if you're looking for a clean text, my work isn't for you.
***NOTE*** Arucard,Demetrius, and Aristide are written in a hybrid Old English to immerse the reader in the Medieval period and provide the most authentic experience possible. Please read the samples to determine whether or not these books are for you.
Again, Barbara Devlin didn’t disappoint me. Her 4th story One-Knight Stand, is well written with a lot of suspense to keep my interest till the end! Perfect Summer read! She nicely blended her charming characters Lance and Cara into a captivating love story filled with twists and turns! The plot was well developed, lots of passion with a dash of humour. The chemistry between them is so beautiful. Everything to please her readers. Wonderful read!
Another great story of the Brethren of the Coast Series! I really loved to read Captain Of Her Heart, liked the story these two strongminded characters Lady Alexandra “Alex” Seymour and Captain Jason Collingwood. It was filled with twists and turns and of course romance!
The Lucky One is such a beautiful story! I really enjoyed it! Barbara Devlin has done it again! It tells the story of Dalton, a devilish sea captain and Daphne, the governor's daughter. A family heirloom has vanished from Dalton's ship, when he discovers that it is missing, he goes after the criminals who stole it. He needs the help of Daphne, who is replacing, her missing father. But Daphne is hiding a secret and she needs to keep her brothers safe. Will he discover what is is hiding? Is there romance in the air between Dalton and Daphne? Some scenes are so funny, like when the knights and their wives will give advice to the future bride and groom! Beautiful chemistry between the two.
I'm not exactly sure how many times or ways I can say that I love Barbara Devlin and her Brethren of the Coast. I credit this series for my renewed love of reading historical romance.
Devlin's heroes are everything your inner romantic dreams are made of. They are young, intelligent, cocky, humorous and caring. The ladies are beautiful, independent, intelligent and brazen in a very humorous sort of way. Most of all, all of them have a deep sense responsibility and of family. This family includes their friends and loved ones. There is nothing they wouldn't do for each other, even intervene, obviously in a caring way, if they felt it was for the best. With characters such as these you are guaranteed a fantastic read every time.
With such heartwarming and funny characters, Devlin has come to sit at the very top of my auto-buy list.
I believe Captain of my Heart is my favorite one as I got a few good laughs out of it and really enjoyed reading that one, but they're all good. I do have to wonder about one thing. Towards the end of the last one, Dalton tells her she's about to take a ride on the wild side. Did they say things like that 200 years ago? I also read on where someone kept saying "Damm straight." I have no idea when those phrases were first said and I'll admit to reading some things in a few Shakespeare plays that I'd have never though we're said hundreds of years ago, so I could be totally wrong, but to me the language just didn't feel right for the time period of the story. It didn't detract from my enjoyment at all, so I'm still giving 5 stars, but I just wondered about that as it seemed odd to me when I read it. But anyway, I enjoyed these and will now move on to the next one in the series! :-)
After reading the Brethren of the coast I purchased volume one and two and I was not disappointed. Each book was better than the last an d I loved how each couple is mentioned in each story. And the Admiral and his wife .....TERRIFIC and their news can't wait for next book. Keep Writing Ms Devlin.
I've read a lot of romantic novels, but Barbara' s books are some of the best. There's no loose ends, digression in the story line, or mad dash to a hurried, but incomplete and unsatisfying culmination. Her books are well thought out and addictive. Kudos to you Barbara...and please don't you dare stop writing!!
I can't wait for volume three. Suspense and drama abound but romance is the big highlight. Barbara is totally creative with the story and the characters. The only issue is that "taking the bottom" isn't the way it is described without lubricant. But totally great stories and characters.
The brethren are a group of friends that show exactly what loyalty, friendship, and honesty can be between men of different backgrounds. Very talented writing, good job. This set of books will keep you on the edge of your seats.
