An Undefined Affair by jayhawkbb
Bella, recovering from a broken heart, meets Edward, who isolates  himself emotionally. Their attraction is immediate, but can they be  friends and lovers - without the love? Rated M

Back to Life by alliz
After a broken engagement, Bella finds herself back in her hometown  working for her sister and brother-in-law. Her past and present come  full circle when she realizes her high school boyfriend, Edward, will be  working with her. Their ending was explosive, causing Bella to keep a  secret from him all these years. Is it better to know you're alive by  living, or to keep yourself closed. Rated M

Begin Again by pattyrose
You can't always start over. Life gets real, and memories of first love,  no matter how passionate it may have been, get relegated to weekly,  monthly, yearly, and then…occasionally. Until it's time to begin again. Rated M

Designated Hitter by esmegrace
Orthopedic surgeon Bella Swan encounters the last person she ever  expected to see again on Valentine's Day no less. Can she remain  professional with Major League pitcher Edward Masen given their pasts? Rated M

Devotion by counselor
Edward moves into a multi-family flat. He sees Bella the first day. Rated M

Do The Right Thing by LyricalKris
When a bust goes wrong, FBI Agent Edward Cullen is faced with a terrible  choice. No one knows of his secret affair with comatose victim Bella  Swan, nor that the child she carries is his. How can he do the right  thing when he doesn't know what that is? Rated M

Down Home by MrsSpaceCowboy
Sometimes, everything you're looking for ends up being right where you  left it. *Entry for The Heart of Country Contest. 1st Place Silver Spur  Award Public Vote, 2nd Place Silver Spur Award Judges Choice, 1st Place  Gentlemen Wear White Award (Swooniest Fella) Public Vote and Judges  Choice, 2nd Place Hay Ride Award Judges Choice.* Now expanded and  complete! Rated M

Even In Death by Drotuno
A month after losing his wife, Edward Masen was taking it one day at a time, trying to simply survive the torrent of grief. Surrounded by memories of their life together and messages she left, he was already questioning his sanity when his phone lit up in the middle of the night... with her picture and number. Rated M

Fill Me With Your Poison by Nolebucgrl
Bella Swan's intrigued by vampires. Edward Cullen's bored and alone. What happens when they meet?  Rated M

Honest Liar by aWhiteBlankPage
Bella once told me that there was nothing braver than a flower growing  through a crack in the sidewalk. I laughed because she was always giving  feelings to things that don't feel. If she was standing next to me, I'd  tuck the dandelion behind her ear. Or she'd blow on it and make a wish.  A hundred wishes. Or maybe just one. Rated M

If This, Then by Bled Dry
If you have chemistry, you only need one other thing: timing. But timing is a bitch. Rated M

Island Nights by compass54
I would always remember him as a dangerously beautiful  twenty-two-year-old, a sensual and affectionate lover who could put a  gun to a man's head and pull the trigger. Why I couldn't forget him was  no mystery. I was still in love with him. Rated M

Milk Teeth by Sparrownotes24
England 1991. Indie rock and bombs, fire and riots. We partied and ran wild, trying to find ourselves amongst the ashes. I found a lot more than that. Rated M

More Than Skin Deep by purpleC305
A simple experiment turns into a passion-filled night for both, nerdy Bella and motocross racer, Edward. It's a night that neither forgets. Burdened with darkness of their own, can they be more than only half truths? Forgetting it as a lustful desire or fighting for what really matters - what will win at the end? **Award winning Control. Possess. Seduce. Contest entry.**Rated M

Skin Deep by Shadow Masen
Some secrets will damage your reputation. Others will ruin your social life. But then there are secrets that will change the way the world looks at you, now and forever. What would Edward be willing to do to keep such a secret? And who will pay the price? Rated M
