A Change of Heart by GemmaH/Chocaholic123-rec'd by Midnight Cougar
Christmas in Chicago is little more than a duty visit for Edward Cullen, but that's before he gets the call that will change his life together. A birthday fic collaboration for Sparrownotes24. Rated M

A Horse of a Different Color by Winterhorses-rec'd by Evilnat
Bella is the new arrival in town, and having an infamously lewd mare isn't helping her gain any friends. Maybe a puzzling young horse whisperer can tame the beast and teach the girl how to love herself, even when she doesn't fit in with the herd. Rated M

Adore, Adore by Ooza-rec'd by Sixdlb5
Bella is in a financial pinch and facing eviction. When propositioned by her landlord, she is faced with a difficult decision: give up her apartment or give up her body. Rated M

Awkwardly Yours by Vancouver-Canuck-Girl-rec'd by Cappricorn75
High school Edward likes a girl named Bella, But he's not a smooth-talking kind of fella. He has his fair share of inserting foot into mouth, And inappropriate risings down south. But he's really kind of sweet, Even if he's sort of a geek. Rated M

Balancoire by Gemini13me-rec'd by Nic
"Perfect balance is like a razor's edge; it can be found only in the Self." - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. Rated M

Bronze by Mothlights-rec'd by Edmazing
Edward is a rebellious newborn lashing out at those who try to help him. At his wit's end, Carlisle asks Isabella, the woman who was once his mentor, to take Edward in until his bloodlust cools. Rated M

Dark Paradise by Allihavetodoisdream-rec'd by Nic/VampsHaveLaws
She lives in a make-believe world of open roads and endless freedom to escape an addiction-riddled mother and a grabby older man with sick intentions. Adrift in a place of uncaring hearts, she makes her getaway. She finds a ratty old motel, late night smokes, a new life, and a boy with a past as clouded as her own. A boy with a dark gentleness too beautiful to ignore. Rated M

Dissonance by Mortissues-rec'd by Everyfreakingbody!
I haven't so much made a success of myself as simply fallen through the cracks in my life and somehow landed buttered side up. I am toast. The fifty percent lucky slice that you rescue from your kitchen counter and shove in your mouth as you run out the door, breathless and late, to start your new day. Rated M

Fridays With You by TheQueenWriter-rec'd by Evilnat
Can two people fall in love in the laundromat? Rated M

Going Down by Redtini-rec'd by Nic
Bella Swan was recruited to The Cullen Firm as the new Managing Director of Global Relations. Unbeknownst to her, she never remembered applying for the position. Yet, luck was on her side, and the offer was too great to pass up. Through one strange encounter and a series of events, Bella realizes that luck had nothing to do with it. Rated M

Indelible by Bannerday-rec'd by Nic
Some experiences, some people, stick with you forever, leaving their mark on your memories. You can't escape what they meant to you and you can't re-write the past. It's indelible. But the future isn't set in stone…it's yours to write. A story about forks in the road of life and a past with a future. Rated M

Lacunar by Perpetually-rec'd by Cappricorn75
He can't remember what she's done. She can't forgive herself for what's happened. When a slate has been erased, some chalk will always remain. Rated M

Please Come Home for Christmas by Kr2009-rec'd by Nic
What should be the most wonderful time of the year is now a nightmare. Reminders of her are everywhere, breaking his heart as his hope vanishes. The one thing Edward wants for Christmas seems impossible, but maybe a miracle can happen just in time. Rated M

Protector by Kitty T's Keyboard-rec'd by Nic
After a vicious attack when she was thirteen, Bella Swan writes a story about what happened to her to try to find and bring her attacker to justice. She had no idea what the ramifications of signing over the rights to have it made into a film, or what choosing Edward Cullen to play her brother Emmett would be. BPOV A/H A/U Canon pairings. Rated M

Smoke on the Water by FyreMasen-rec'd by Nic
Smoke on the Water is an annual barbeque and music festival held in a small Georgia town. It draws crowds from far and wide. Only this year, country star Bella Swan is gonna be the main act. What happens when a couple of good ole country boys win passes to meet her? Rated M

Stolen Dreams by Shasta53-rec'd by Maplestyle
Bella and Edward were ready to become parents as seniors in high school, but tragedy ended their dreams and pulled them apart. Ten years later, they reunite, but all is not what it seems. Rated M

Sway by Love notes from morgan o'mally-rec'd by Dolly Reader
A story of two people. Paths cross, lives blend and they discover they like each other more everyday. A simple, possible love story where the palms line the shore. EPOV. Rated M

The Other One by JiffyKate-rec'd by Nic
Two strangers struggling from day to day. One trying to overcome the past while the other hides behind it. Will they be able to trust one another enough to share their secrets and accept the truth despite what they've been through? Rated M

The 12 Dates of Christmas by CherrybombLuv-rec'd by Evilnat
Tired of being alone, Bella decides to put herself out there and, for the first time in a year, goes on a string of dates in the hopes of finding the one-hopefully in time for Christmas. She soon finds out that it's harder than it looks. Or is it?  Rated M

To Her Door by Thimbles-rec'd by Maplestyle
She said, "I'm not standing by, to watch you slowly die / So watch me walking, out the door." A story told in three parts. For the lovely MagTwi 78. Rated M
