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. All three books in the series quickly climbed the lists on Amazon, and in January 2014, 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.

There is a brief history of the Brethren, as well as a list of associated research and relevant links. 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.

Happy Reading!
