He's my older sister's good friend. He is rugged, warm, and cool in his tweed pea coat. His sneakers worn like he'd walked through a lifetime and just got back. All he did was walk through the door every morning. He knows things but not about me. I am shredded with love. Rated M

Oblivious by LyricalKris
Juggling two jobs and a full-time schedule of classes, college student Bella didn't have time to figure out just how sexy she could be. Her boss, Edward knew. She was going to figure it out sometime-why not with him? A woman in full possession of her wiles is a force to be reckoned with. Rated M

After witnessing the brutal murder of her parents, sharpshooter & former Olympian Bella Swan is forced to live under a new identity as a high school student in tiny Forks, WA. Will unexpected feelings for the wrong man be her undoing or her salvation? AH Rated M

Begin Again Again by pattyrose
Bella's life philosophy has shifted in the past few years since she reconnected with Edward: Life gets real, and no, you can't start the same batch over...but you can ALWAYS begin again. She likes this one. She's pretty sure this one will stick. But in the face of yet another life-altering event, can she and Edward follow this philosophy, and readjust their lives all over again? Rated M

Bridges by Savory
This is an Edward/Bella love story told from Edward's point of view. It is also a love story of the passions in life that bring two people together and the love of a city. Takes place in Charleston, SC. Rated M

Comfortably Numb by matthison
Bella Swan enjoys helping people. It doesn't matter if it's the customers she pours a cup of coffee for, or the man who just drop money on a New York sidewalk. But when the kindness she shows is turned against her, how far will she continue to go to protect her family? Will she sacrifice her happiness? Or let her only relative lose everything? Angst! CC rated M for adult content. Rated M

Constable Masen of the RCMP by Shouldbecleaning
There, standing at attention in the middle of the platform, was an absolutely perfect representation of a Royal Canadian Mounted Police officer in full red dress uniform. A man dedicated to upholding the law, selfless and humble can be quite attractive. However, this man was sheer beauty before he donned the official mantle. Rated M

Crossroads Continued by dustybritches01
She was good, honest, sweet ... alone. He wanted her happy, whole, safe ... his. Two strangers, one road trip at Christmas. A continuation of the one-shot for the Mistletoe.

Man Behind the Mask by drotuno
What you see isn't always what you get. By all appearances, Masen lives the life of sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll. He's living the dream that has turned into a nightmare because his life - and his reputation - is not his own. There must be more to life than tour buses, groupies, paparazzi, and slimy record producers. Rated M

Ride by Kris Salvador
Bella wanted to fulfill a fantasy - to be groped inside a crowded train. She gets her wish and more, when a sex-starved ex-convict decides she's fair game. Rated M

She tames the beast within by DeJean Smith
She only knows of a day-to-day existence. He only knows of life on a silver platter. She only knows contentment with what she has. He only knows the lust for more, and he has her in his sights. An expansion of my Twilight 25, round 9, exploration of the prompt, 'innocence.' Rated M

The Whisky Distiller’s Wife by 2carm2carm2
