Girl Crush Mondays: Beth and Bella Black Dagger Brotherhood

Elizabeth Anne Randall

Queen B is a worthy consort to our Warrior King Wrath. Not only is she beautiful but her compassionate heart earned her Wrath's love and the Brotherhood's loyalty.

I must admit, I was envious of Beth in Dark Lover.
She's beyond wealthy, smart & beautiful, snagged a King for a husband, and she gets to share her big mansion with the rest of the Brothers! And note that most of them were single at this time.

These are just some of the many reasons why we love her.

I'll just let Wrath tell you the rest
I can smell the sex coming off you right now. I could take you down on this sidewalk and be up that skirt of yours in a heartbeat. And you wouldn't fight me, would you?
Now, we can be civilized and wait until we get home. Or we can get down to it right here. Either way, I'm dying to come inside of you again, and you're not going to say no. 
Wrath dragged Beth into his arms and hugged her hard, talking in that other language again. When he pulled back, he ended the monologue with something like leelanBeth: "Is that vampire talk for bitch?”

As a member of the glymera with all their rules of etiquette and behavior, her infatuation with Zsadist felt misplaced at first. I'm sure we all had a What is she thinking?, moment when she was pining for the scarred Brother. We couldn't understand why she would pick Zsadist, the warrior most everyone avoids.

Then Ward wove this fantastic back story for Zsadist that made us see the beautiful soul behind the scars and slave tattoos. We then started rooting for these two lovebirds and I'm sure a couple of you wanted to pound Zsadist's head for even trying to resist Bella's advances.

One can't help but admire this chick's tenacity and perseverance in courting Zsadist. She saw the beauty behind the menacing demeanor and just kept on pounding until she tore the walls surrounding Z's heart.


My favorite part in Lover Awakened was during Bella's needing phase. She drove everyone in the mansion crazy at that time that V and Phury were taking turns hooking up with Palmela.

But aside from the steamy sex, that intimacy between them forced Zsadist to open up and let Bella in. And I'm sure we were all thrilled when they both had Nalla.

I was dead until you found me, though I breathed. I was sightless, though I could see. And then you came...and I was awakened.

I thought maybe I could go to Charleston and show up at your front door to give this back and maybe… you might let me in. Or something. I was worried that another male would court you, so I've been trying to go as fast as I could. I mean, I figured maybe if I could read, and if I took a little better care of myself, and if I tried to stop being such a mean-ass motherfucker…" He shook his head. "But don't misunderstand. It's not like I expected you to be happy to see me. I was just… you know, hoping… coffee. Tea. Chance to talk. Or some shit. Friends, maybe. Except if you had a male, he wouldn't allow that. So, yeah, that's why I've been hurrying.
Bella took the paper. In a child's uneven block letters there were three words: I LOVE YOU
So who's your favorite shellan?

  1. I have to admit that Beth is my favourite too. In fact Beth and Wrath are my fav couple.
    Just just has an added "coolness" about her. I just admire the character a lot. Great post!

    Cheers, Michelle Kelly

  2. Oooooh Braine,

    I love Beth and Bella!!Gosh it's been so long since I read Dark Lover, I almost *not really* but almost forgot how incredibly sexy Wrath was with Beth in his book. LOL I laughed so hard when I read the part about her asking if "leelan" was Vampire slang for "bitch" haha!!

    Also Zsadist is my lover and when he showed up to visit her Finally!!! And gave her that note saying "I love you" I just died...I cried so hard during that book but that part made me dry such triumphant tears!! I <3 him!!

    Great job, but to answer your question, I love all the Shellans!! My favorites would probably be Bella, Beth, Mary, Xhex, Jane and I think they're all great though, but those stand out to me!!

  3. WOnderful posting!! I love Bella as it took a whole lot of woman to be there for Zsadist, plus I love Z. Oh seeing your quote makes me want to reread his book. Just so raw, and ...and...and.... that quote was. Z did make me blubber like a baby..poor lovey....

    I think Jane is so suited to V.


  4. Vain - yes they're all kick ass women!

    Michelle - I think Z left all of us stuttering with melted hearts. Ward's couples are something else, I just think she hit a wall with Jane. She's a ghost of some sort, I mean it works but maybe she could've made it better? More flair? Well that's just my humble opinion so NO OFFENSE meant for all the Jane fans out there. I love her and my heart broke when she died but after seeing the SV's miracles, I was hoping she could've done more for her son's wife.

  5. If I ever had the pleasure of becoming a shellan for one of the warriors in the Brotherhood I would so be BFF's with Beth and Bella. I would prefer to be married to one or both of their hellrans but I still like these women. I want to be them when I grow up. LOL.
