  1. I love Masen Manor so much! It is one of the best stories I've read. It just pulls you in. I also love Volunteer #13! This Bella is so damn funny, and the Edward is beyond sexy. With only three chapters in, it already has one of the best damn kisses ever! There is so much talent in our fandom. Aren't we lucky?!
