Edward Cullen was just the competition—the only other neurosurgeon possibly as good as she was in three states—until the day Bella's husband landed on his table.

A boy with a dark gentleness too beautiful to ignore. Rated M

Evergreen Loop by Vican
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/11815724/1/

Indelible by bannerday
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10334017/1/Indelible

Six by Sarge's Girls
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/12042869/1/Six
