Masen had it all. Money... Good looks... until he pulls a prank on the wrong person and is turned ugly on the outside just as he is on the in. He has a year to find someone to love him for what's on the inside or he will stay that way forever. He begins to loose hope until he meets one girl... Bella Swan. But, can she learn to love him? For who could ever learn to love a beast?




“Looks are so important to you,” she murmured as she walked over to me. “Imagine life without them.”


“What?” I asked, confused.


“You’ve spent your life worrying about how you look and treating all of the ‘beastly’ people out there like garbage.”


“It was a joke!” I cried out in panic.


Victoria tilted her head to the side and said, “I didn’t get it. But you will.”


Black spots had started to cloud my eyes. “Get what?”


Victoria put her hand on my shoulder. “You have a year from today to find someone to love you.”

When Bella found Edward in the arms of another woman four years ago, she felt confused, betrayed, but most of all, she was heartbroken. She couldn't believe he would do such a thing, but the proof was right there, she saw it with her own eyes, heard it with her own ears, and she refused to listen to reason, so she ran. But what happens when Bella runs into Edward at a club nearly four years later? Will she finally give him the chance to explain what she saw all those years ago, but most importantly, will she believe him? How will Edward react to the secret Bella's been hiding all these years? And what about the secrets lurking in his closet? Will these two be able to overcome all that's happened and move forward together? Or is history going to repeat itself? Lemons. HEA.

Bella Swan has had a tough life so far. Her mother Renée is abusive and negligent, and her father Charlie is barely present in her life. She has no friends either. Worse of all, no one had ever treated her with sincerity. No one except for a vampire named Carlisle Cullen. It was because of him. . .and his children. . .that Bella had experienced kindness. . .and found out how it truly felt to be loved.

Lunar Eclipse by Ren68 Rated: G starstarstarstar [Reviews - 40]


Existence was hard, harder than I would have believed even a few years earlier. Being involved with Bella opened my world to things I wouldn’t have thought about before. Being human was far more difficult than I’d given them credit for, knowing now how wrong I truly was. And even after all of this… I wouldn’t change one thing.

Having her was the most important thing, and anything that came with that I would deal with. As long as she was with me, we’d be all right. Together we could conquer all. She was my existence now, and I couldn’t wait to exist.

 -Edward Cullen.

A Stolen Life by jlove34 Rated: PG-13 starstarstarstarhalf-star [Reviews - 35]

 photo AStolenLife_zps2e8a77dc.jpg

"Destiny is a name often given in retrospect to choices that had dramatic consequences."

— J.K. Rowling


In the process of returning to Forks, Washington, Edward came across a car whose passenger held a familiar, silent mind. Curious by the phenomenon, he followed them and inadvertently witnessed a horrific accident. Compelled by curiosity, Edward found himself immersed in the blood that he'd so desperately tried to shield himself from four years earlier. Overwhelmed by his vampire nature, he allowed the beast within free rein and savored the alluring liquid.

Consumed by the shame of drinking her blood, Edward brought the girl home to his father and hoped Carlisle would save her life, knowing deep in his heart that she was beyond modern medicine. After much deliberation, Edward accepted the inevitable and changed her himself, nearly killing her in the process. With the treaty in shambles and forgiveness hanging in the balance, could Edward forgive himself for imposing such a fate upon a dying girl? Could Bella ever love a vampire who stole everything from her?

Edward Cullen is a medical student who is assigned to help Bella and her son find affordable medical care as an ethics project.

Will they be able to get along so Edward can get his project done and Bella's son the medical attention he needs, or will they end up hating each other on the way?

Life isn't easy, but it shouldn't have to be this hard either. I shouldn't have to pretend to be happy and in love.
