Genre: Contemporary Romance
Type: Book 1 of 4 from Court of Paravel series.
POV: First Person - Dual

Archduke Devrim Levanter tasted freedom after 27 years of incarceration. With a reclaimed position as the Captain of the King’s Guard, he prided himself on his discipline and self-control. That was until the young Lady Wraye Rugova came into his life and tested both of their boundaries.

I loved Devrim and his traditions. He tried to do what he thought was the right thing. However, there was
Wow! This was especially delicious in a way I never expected!

I was amazed at how much I really loved both Devrim and Wraye. I enjoy a bit of an age gap but usually nothing as much as thirty-two years so I was a little worried. However, the age actually never became a huge issue, especially between these characters and I found it didn’t bother me either.

My question is the softest whisper as I gaze at his mouth. "How many times?"

His thick silver hair gleams in the dim light and his strong arms tighten around me. "How many times what?"

"How many times do you…want to spank me?"

"Until I feel that you’re sorry for all the trouble you’ve caused me. My Court. My rules."

very interesting story! there's this historical feel because of words like Court, Lord, King which only makes it more refreshing. we are introduced to Devrim, 53 and his daughter's friend Wraye, 21.

this thirty two year age-gap between Devrim & Wraye honestly caught my attention (and some of you guys as well 😉) so i'm very curious to see how Brianna Hale will handle this topic.

Devrim's Discipline was a very interesting story. I thought it was well written and the characters, especially Devrim were lovable and relatable.
The story has an almost historical feel because of the King, and Courts, but it is written in today's time, which was a very good twist.

'Devrim's Discipline' is an age gap Standalone Romance written by the author Brianna Hale. This book is the first part of the 'Court Of Paravel' series and is told in dual perspectives.

I am not one who is a huge fan of the Daddy link , so I was a bit cringy in the starting of this book , but it picked off really good. I found myself enjoying the storyline and found a particular liking to all the characters.

I am a huge fan of age gape and royal romance and this one really was no different, but I had a hard time enjoying Devrim at the beginning of this story. He had been in prison for a very long time so he has a hard texture and doesn't trust anyone including his daughter - to a point. So when his daughter becomes friends with Wraye he finds he must protect her rather she wants it or not.

But poor Wraye isn't after anything that Devrim has other than his daughter's friendship. But when he starts to

Another great age-gap romance by Brianna Hale! I was hooked on this book from the start. Devrim Levanter is the Archduke and part of the King's Court. He protects the King and Queen of Paravel. But when they die and an uprising occurs, he's locked away in jail for 27 years. Finally free, and with the downfall of the rebels who first overtook the throne, he is now thrust back into his old job with the new King. He can finally be with his daughter Aubrey, who has grown up without him. Wra

"Pretty Lady Wraye up against a window and panting for Daddy." I sink my teeth into her earlobe. "I can feel you getting tighter, sweet girl. Are you going to come for me?"

Devrim's Discipline by the one and only Brianna Hale is another super hot Daddy, age gap romance. No one can write a Daddy romance quite like Brianna Hale. Her writing is direct and to the point with a little flair every now and then for dramatic effect. I always fly through her books and Devrim's Discipline was no exception.

This was a good quick age gap/ forbidden romance read. The story was written very well and flowed easily. The daddy kink is light and sexy and worked for this. I really enjoyed it over all.

Brianna Hale is quickly becoming a favorite and a one click author for me. Her age gap, Daddy stories just hit all the right notes for me. If you don't like those things then just pass on this book. The whole story just sort of blew me away. I loved how strict and stern Devrim is and even though she's a bit scared, Wraye is intrigued by him. She becomes friends with his daughter and is caught trying her clothes on. They both know their attraction is taboo but they can't resist each other. But Wr ...more

Love this creative story!

The world building in this series opener is fantastic. Though it begins a bit slowly, that reduced speed is necessary in order to create a foundation for the plot. Once the pair meet, things begin to move at just the right speed. Devrim and Wraye have an instant chemistry that must be wrangled on each end based on what they each internally believe is possible. Wraye’s inner core of strength, which never sinks to being foolishly obstinate really shines throughout this bo

Just when I thought Brianna couldn't outdo herself... she goes and proves me wrong. This book was impossible to put down and when I had to be dragged away, all I could think about was coming back to it. This is an incredible start to a delicious royalty series and I am so very excited to see where the rest of the characters go from here. I adore all of them, especially our silver fox 😍 I was so emerged in atmosphere. I felt like i was in the court.

New to me author. Why am I just now discovering Brianna Hale?
Wow I loved Devrim and Wraye.
I also enjoyed the aspect of how the story was written, modern yet still old world. Enjoyed it very much.
I can not wait for Aubrey's story.

This is the first book I read from Brianna Hale and it was just amazing.

Earlier this year I read a Hale book and was captivated by the story and the style of writing. Hale wrote a beautiful story that happened to have a DD/LG relationship in it. It was an important part of the story but it wasn’t the only defining aspect of the story.

To stay the least I was excited she was back doing royal inspired series which involves some pent up frustrated heroes who have been caught up in a royal coup. I was captivated by the cover. It’s been a while where I read a story of a o

Before I'll even start with my review I would like to tell you that I love Daddy romance, I LOVE Brianna Hale, love her world building, plots and twist but!!! This is a different review of what I usually write about Brianna's books.

I started this book but, quitted it at 25% but for my reasons only!
Brianna's world building is one of my favorite but this one didn't do it for me. Not my cup of tea, or coffee in my case.

I am quickly becoming a BIG Brianna Gale fan. This new series about the Court of Paravel is going to be my favorite yet, I think.

I won an early copy of this book from a giveaway, and I devoured it in about 2 hours!!! I will admit to being a little confused by the set up of the world/the court itself, but I feel like that will fill in as I read more of the series.

We start with Devrim, who has been in prison for 27 years as a traitor. But when the new King take back control, Devrim is released and
What a beautiful royal romance. It's full of passion, yearning emotions, and a good old epic plot.

I enjoyed it with a little girl's glee, and I fell in love with Paravel, its tumultuous history and inhabitants, and all the potential love stories it may spawn. Can I live there for a while? 😄

Even if age-gap relationships or spankings are not your favourite cup of tea, the sheer ellicit quality of the romance and the supressed emotions due to secrets will make your heart soar.

Wow. I absolutely loved this story. This story is in a royal modern world. Archduke Devrim has been in prison for twenty seven years. He’s back in his old job and trying to build a relationship with his daughter. He wants to protect her, even from her friend Wraye.

If you like age gap stories then I definitely recommend this story.

Although there is a historical feel to this story (I’m not keen on this genre) I thought this was a great read.

There's nothing Brianna Hale likes more than a large, stern alpha male with a super-protective and caring streak, and when she's not writing about them she can usually be found with a book, a cocktail, planning her next trip to a beautiful location or attending the theatre.
