Bad Timing by LyricalKris
Successful and smart, Bella had always made the right decision. Until that one day that one time. But once is all it takes. Murphy's Law strikes again. Rated M

Ballad of the Spinster and the Outlaw by Alby Mangroves
"Sometimes, at night, he'd walk in his meadow and look to the sky, hoping she was seeing the same full moon, the same brilliant stars." This is a story of second chances and intrepid hearts. Rated M

Barefoot in Texas by Planetblue
I watch her jumping, prancing, her hands empty but taking pictures. Her feet bare on the hot Texas earth. Everything in my life that was planned to a T just whirled away in a ruffled skirt. Rated M

Belward by Footprints358
Access Hollywood thinks he's gay. Extra thinks he's secretly married. In reality, Hollywood Hot Shot Edward Cullen is just busy. The literary world recognizes M. Dwyer as one of the most prolific writers of this generation. The business world knows Isabella Swan as a philanthropic real estate mogul. What happens when all of this comes crashing together? Rated M

Catch My Breath by tanglingshadows
Once upon a time, a quirky woman barreled into a soft-spoken man's life and turned it upside down. Not that he complained about it. Rated M

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

Once Again by Marvar
When Bella goes to see the final movie in the Dusk Saga, she runs into someone from her past who just might be able to give her a happy ending - in more ways than one. My birthday present for Cosmogirl7481. Rated M

Star in Your Sky by Wonwordful
It wasn't every day that Bella volunteered to be vampire gourmet. The last thing she expected was for him to kidnap her and take her on an adventure instead. Who was he and how were they connected? It was hard to have fun while tangled up in a web of secrets, schemes and some very dangerous ancients. Rated M

The Good Luck Club by Lolo84
Perpetually down on her luck, things start to turn around for Bella in the strangest of places. Her new job. At a strip club. When a certain … 'Client' takes an interest in her. But how long will that luck last? Rated M

With Teeth by TalulaBlue
Edward is a 27-year old alcoholic/addict struggling with his recovery. Bella is a 23-year-old who's moved back home after college. This fic chronicles how they meet, fall in love, and struggle with the complexities of their relationship.Rated M
