I am a FREAKING ADDICT when it comes to the Black Dagger Brotherhood. I have read every book. I’ve just discovered the shorter Novellas, like this one, FATHER MINE, that were probably portions of bigger books that were cut to make the actual novels not-quite-so-long.
Got to tell you: Not usually a fan of novellas. BUT, Ms. Ward’s novellas are perfectly wrapped up little gifts with bows. Beginnings, ends…perfect.
This one, Father Mine, is about the Black Dagger Brother Zsadist or “Z” and his Shellan (mate), Bella. It centers around the birth of their daughter, Nalla, and the emotional upheaval her birth creates is Z’s mind. Basically, Z experiences the post-partum depression that mothers usually do. He worries. Is he a good enough man to be a father? Will he hurt his daughter? Will she be ashamed of who he is? Typical worries but not a typical guy. Z is macho personified with a teddy bear heart.
It’s actually a very good short story. I loved it. PREFER the bigger better real novels. But, for a quickie this was kind of satisfying.
This is a good read, even if it is a novella.
Nalla's birth wasn't easy for him and I can so totally see how tortured he must have felt after seeing this beautiful, pure, innocent child and knowing that having him as a father with his past and hang ups wasn't something he wanted for her. The fact that she knew him and wanted him, but he didn't feel clean enough for her hurt. I also wanted to smack him for not sharing with Bella exactly how he felt, but got over that quickly. Sigh, I just can't stay mad at Z because I have always seen his potential.
Very short story that I basically couldn't stop reading until the end. Definitely reinforced my enthusiasm for the BDB.
I liked it. It had my interest well but it was out of order with the rest of the books.
