Maybe he wasn't an effective father to them, as "protecting" them excessively isn't what a good father would do, and it sounds as though he never helped them to learn such important things as discipline. And by giving a child an artificial view of the world, as a plac where she can expect to get everything she wants, can indeed lead to bitterness later, when she discovers the lie, and has trouble adjusting to the real world in which she is hugely less important than he pretended she was. it may not be his fault, but it sounds as though he may well have contributed towards the growth of the problem.
it's hardly fair, though, to expect you to solve the problem they created, with a kid who dislikes you. They should arrange for her to see a counsellor, who is expert at dealing with such problems.
