Vow Of Obedience by Brianna Hale is book #2 in the new interconnected standalone series Cavalieri Della Morte. Each book features one of the twelve assassins of the Tabella Della Morte.
This is Daddy Geraint’s story.
Geraint Reese, a ruthless assassin for the Tabella Della Morte. After just finding out of his brother Trefor’s death he’s determined to get revenge on the man who killed him, Adelmo Lange, and he’s willing to do whatever it takes to make him pay.
Imagine Geraint’s surprise when he finds out that the scared young girl that he found running in the rain 5 months ago and dumped in a convent in San Antonio- right after he finished murdering a man in the graveyard, is Adelmo’s daughter. Geraint knows just how to exact his revenge.
“I’m coming for you Branwen Lange, and I’m going to get what I need from you. Even if I have to give you to your father piece by fucking piece.”
Something happened all those months ago and ever since Branwen Lange has been begging and praying to her God to be forgiven. She never thought she’d see her savior from all those months ago, and she most certainly didn’t think he would come back and take her with him.
I remember the feel of his arms around me that rainy night, when a terror so great filled me that I couldn’t stop running. He gathered up all that fear and took it into himself , and the release was so great I couldn’t stay on my feet a moment longer. Surely a demon wouldn’t do that. Only an angel can swallow darkness.
Branwen has taken a vow of silence, so when Geraint shows up and starts dragging her out of the church she doesn’t scream, she doesn’t try and fight him, she just goes along with him. Even though Geriant plans on taking her to the same place that she was running from…
“His scent is enfolding me again, even though the heavy incense of the church. He smells like gunpowder, dark chocolate, and treachery. Sweetness and illicitness, entwined together. My Savior. Except he’s not. I’ve learned a lot about saviors since coming to Our Lady of Sorrows, and they don’t come with bloodstains and hard muscle.”
After taking her from the church, Geraint and Branwen head out on a cross country road trip. Destination, Avallonis. Branwen’s home and where her father, Adelmo Lange is.
During their trip, it doesn’t take long for Geraint to change his mind about hurting the innocent little Branwen. Instead, he finds himself getting extremely protective of her. Especially after a short phone call with Branwen’s father shows him just how little the man cares about the wellbeing of his own daughter.
All throughout Branwen keeps up with her vow, not uttering one single word… even at times when she really should.
Without even thinking about it, I pull her into my arms and grip her so tightly, it’s like I’m trying to meld her body with mine. “There are bad fucking people out there , baby. You gotta speak up when you’re in trouble.” She shakes her head. Fuck. She won’t even speak to save her life . What’s she so afraid of at Avallonis, and what’s she running from? I need to know more than I need that fucking map. As she sobs in my arms, I want to drown the world in blood for her. Who do I need to kill to release her from this terror?
Branwen is determined to atone for her “sins” and she thinks her vow is the way to do it. But Daddy Geraint has other plans for his baby girl.
“You’re going to swear a new vow, baby. A vow of obedience, to me. I will be your God. I will bestow love. Forgiveness. Punishment. I will be your everything and you’ll answer to no one but me.”
Before long they reach their final destination and not only does Geraint have decisions to make… so does Branwen.
Will Brenwen choose the man and father she’s always known? Or will she choose her NEW Daddy who’s shown her what love and forgiveness really is?

HOLY HOTNESS! This one was smoking hot! I’m not even into the whole Daddy kink thing but damnnn, Geraint can put me over his lap ANY DAY!
Vow of Obedience is a fast-paced, smoking hot read! The development of the relationship between Geraint and Branwen moved pretty quick but it was a short read so it worked out. Even though it’s told from dual POV, right up until the end of the book Branwen doesn’t speak so when it’s her POV it’s really just her thoughts on everything. I’ve got to say I thought she would break her silence wayyy early on, I give props to the author for holding it strong and making it actually work since I wasn’t sure I was going to like that.
For a stone-cold assassin, Geriant is hilarious! He has the best little one-liners, “You’ll get used to it in a bit, baby. I know it’s new and all, getting kidnapped, but you’re doing great. Five out of five.” Haha, or another one, “Good little Catholic girls are probably told they’ll burn if they ring the devil’s doorbell. It’s all right, baby. I’ll ring it for you.’ I laughed my ass off, pretty sure Geriant will wind up my favorite out of these guys.
This is my first read from Brianna Hale, I thought she was a new author until I checked her out on Goodreads and saw that she has quite a few releases, I’ve added quite a few of them to my TBR and I can’t wait to check out more from her!
As always, I just wish it had been a little longer.
Vow of Obedience is a story of love, acceptance, and forgiveness. If you enjoy a bit of dark with your romance and a whole lot of daddy kink then this one is for you!
I can’t wait to see what else these authors have in store for the rest of the men of Tabella Della Morte.
“I’m no saint, Branwen. I’m not even a believer. I’ve done things that your God will send me to hell for. I won’t be joining you in your pretty heaven.”“Yes, you will. Because if you get sent to hell, I’ll come down and get you.” He grins at me. “You’re my light in the darkness, babygirl. Keep burning bright for me?”“Always.
