Welcome to the World of the Brethren


Welcome to the official site of Barbara Devlin, bestselling author of The Brethren of the Coast novels—richly composed tales of rakehell Nautionnier Knights and the spirited women who claim their hearts.

Things are changing fast in the world of the Brethren. The series in its entirety quickly climbed the lists on Amazon, and My Lady, The Spy occupied the #1 spot in Historical Fiction, Historical Romance, and Hot New Releases. While my current stories are Peninsular War-era historical works, given reader interest, I have decided to write the adventures of the five original Templar Knights: Arucard, Demetrius, Morgan, Aristide, and Geoffrey.  A lot has happened in 2015. First The Lucky One, which is Dalton and Daphne’s story, debuted at #1 in Hot New Releases on Amazon, and then this summer, Arucard: Brethren Origins Book 1, the first Medieval romance of the spinoff series, also debuted at #1 in Hot New Releases.  On October 29, I helped launch Kathryn Le Veque’s Kindle World of De Wolfe Pack, with so many fabulous authors.  To my surprise and gratitude, Lone Wolfe debuted at #1 in Historical Kindle Worlds.  And Love with an Improper Stranger is here!  Book 7 in the Brethren of the Coast series debuted at #1 in Historical Fiction and Hot New Releases, and I can’t thank my Nautionniers enough.  So feel free to peruse the pages and learn a little bit more of the world I’ve created just for you.

There is a brief history of the Brethren, as well as a list of associated research and relevant links, along with the signup for my monthly newsletter, The Knightly News. If you’d like to email me, just fill out the form on the contact page. I love to hear from my readers.

Up-to-date details of all published novels can be found on this site, as well as news items and my commentary to readers. If you want to know more about my work, or me, this is the place. Thank you for visiting my world.

Let the Brethren rock your boat!
