A glitch is intermitently preventing TwiliteAddict and I from responding to reviews for our co-authored stories.  Please know we value and appreciate each and every one and will be replying just as soon as we can!!  Thanks for your patience and reviews!   :D

About Me:

I'm a wife, mother of two who used to be a prospective whale biologist in Washington (not too far from the Olympic Peninsula--I can see Port Angeles from here on a clear day!).

Despite having played a Vampire in a local production of "Dracula" I had not heard of "Twilight" until the movie came out.  Go figure.  My typical cuppa is Sci-Fi/Fantasy, not Romance and never before vamp fiction, so my RL friends and family find it histerical that this genre has sucked me in so deeply!  :D  I have a google search for "Best Twilight Fan Fiction" to thank for finding the fandom in the first place.


I came for the lemons, but have stayed for the creativity.  And boy, am I glad I did!!!


I chose RosaBella as my penname over on ff dot net,  because I have a classic look that strongly resembles Rosalie, I love working on my Mustang with my father (having rebuilt it with him awile back- and didn't mind smelling to high heaven of gasoline and gear oil for 6 straight weeks to do it), but am Bella to my core.

Oooh, so gripping!!  I just adore this story and am so delighted to be getting to see where you take us with it!  Very saturday night television series worthy!!

Thanks for writing and sharing!!!

With Jasper's roommate out of town, Bella has his nice big bed all to herself. Until Edward comes home in the middle of the night...

AAAAaarrrrrrggggg!!!  I lost track of the VERY maddening fact that I have caught up to the latest update and so now have to wait!  I think I'm gonna cry!  I'm still staring at the spot where that lovely "next" link usually sits feeling like somebody shot my puppy!  lol  (alright, maybe not that, but I'm really, really bummed!)

If you can't tell, I've been really enjoying your take on our favorite couple.  I have to say you are the queen of the wicked cliffie!  :)  Keeps us coming back for more, no doubt, but it's just about evil!  :D

Nice end with Eddie going all caveman on dumnass Sam!

I keep picturing Ratauille when Bella's in the Kitchen!

Does James get to be really wicked later?  Does Edward get to be the knight in shining armor?

What ever you decide to do with this story, I'm thoroughly sucked in and panting for more!  (I feel for you having to move--I loath moving!  Must be how often I've had to do it.  Best wishes on satisfying the writing bug (and our addiction to your story) and keeping up with your RL demands!

Thanks for writing.

That teaser in the CEN's has me REALLY drooling for more!

Good luck with the move! You have my sympathy (it's pretty much one of my least favorte things to do), and I hope it goes well--not too much lost, damaged or frustratingly difficult to place in the new house!  :)

Lovely chapter as always.  Really feel like they're finally getting to know eachother.  Very satisfying!  :D

Beautiful well rounded chapter.  I'll forgive you for the cockblocking since, as you point out, it suits the long distance relationship.  :)    I had actually been expecting them to skype sex.  lol

I'm sensing some forshadowing with the James hug.  Is he really evil in this story or a moderate obstacle for Bella to overcome?

Loved the converation with Em, her epiphany, and her change in behaviour resulting from it.  (totally hot dream,  by the way!)  You made my day with this update!

Date: July 29, 2009 Title: Chapter 18: Chapter 18 So Far Away From Me (V)

I WAS very impressed that you let us off the hook that easy!  I was only gonna call you 1/4 evil. ;D

Still waiting for James to do something really wicked and most likely back stabbing.  He's been on such "good" behavior it makes me leary.  Very sweet tableau at the end.

Highly satisfying chapter!  So good it IS extremely hard to be patient for more!  At least I rest assured that the next installment will be worth the wait!

Now that I'm writing my own fic I have definitely gotten a greater appreciation for the delightful power of the cliffie (and it really IS genereally that the natural break occurs there!).  I'm trying to prepare myself for the the karmic backlash once I post and start hearing about how much I suck!  lol  :D

Thanks for writing!

I agree.  I have no idea where this is going, and I'm loving it!!!  Was waiting for James to reveal how wicked he is!

LOL The CEN was as entertaining as the chapter!  (And it was another FABS chap.)  And yes, DAMN HIM!  lol

Excellent fight, btw.  They didn't get into name calling too much, shared their hurt feelings and rising tempers, but she actually seemed to hear him in a way that made her show her underbelly rather than lash out.  Nice adult argument rather than 'fight'.

Love your writing, as always eager for more.

Thanks for writing!!!

Gah, I loved this chapter!!!  Your end notes pretty well summed up the highlights I've been thinking about (as I fan myself with printer paper)!

Nice twists this chapter!  And here I had entertained the notion that this might be a fairly superficial fic...silly me!!!  Love it!

Thanks for writing!!!

Date: September 18, 2009 Title: Chapter 22: Chapter 22 Demon Scotch and Brotherhood

I'm sensing that the fact that Bella keeps turning her back on James is going to be a huge personal mistake. Guessing he's deluded enough to think if he removes her physically then Bruce will see how stellar he really is (typical control guy move, eh?).  What ever you do, I know from what you've done so far, that I'll love it!

Nice, wakey, wakey scene!!!  ;D  I'll definitly keep my eyes peeled for the outtake!  Sounds like a hoot and a half in the making!

Thanks for writing!

Thanks for the great fic!

Date: November 11, 2009 Title: Chapter 24: Chapter 24 Spoiling for a Fight

I think James is going to start by hurting her car, since it means so much to her, maybe mess up the paint.  The other thought I had was that he'd go on a subtle campaign to mess up little stuff that she knows is him, but can't reallly pin on him, but escalates into something bigger.  That or he kidnaps her, or better yet, kidnaps Edward.  That'd mess with her, esp after her realizations of this chapter.

Adore the line about magic house fairies!!!  Sooo true!

What was it about last month?!  A bunch of us (I include myself) had a hell of a time getting updates out.  Totally undersstand.  Thanks for getting it out as soon as you did! :D

At lest it was so satisfying of a chapter that it was definitely worth the wait.  The wicked cliffie has me praying you already have the next chapter at least started!!  lol

ADORED the Smut Mondays out-take!!!!  Thanks for that!!!

So glad you too have offered your services in support of the very worthy FGB!  I'm gonna have trouble deciding who to bid on, but you certainly make the short list!  I'm just praying I get bid on at all for my donation!! lol

Thanks for writing and sharing!  It never fails to make my day!

*delighted laughter*  Fabs proposal and even better PSA and reveal of James' particular brand of creepy for this tale.  You really did a great job with her emotional and psychological state when talking to the police officer.

Glad to have you back.  Understand about how things go.  No worries.

Hope you have a fabs night tonight!  Thanks for the entertainment this evening!!  :D

Thanks for writing!!

Excellent chap!  So right that just because they caught him red handed doesn't mean James is no longer a concern.

Love the cliffie Alice situation as well as B's concerns about E's lack of a proposal because of how  he's feeling all caveman.

Eager for more, but respect your need for time.

Thanks for writing!!!

Yeah, I'm guessing she's going to open a restaurant in Hilton-Head and E's going to move back as well.  Just can't decide if James will become a huge problem before or after.   Also wondering if James ends up dead or if he does something to get life in prisson.  Love how you handled their figtht.  I swear you clones the part about it not being an ultimatum from several fights with my husband - especially back when I first started reading Twi (the second time) and he was feeling threatened by fictional stone-like vampires.  Bravo!!!  (and he sounded just like my hubs too)  :D

Thanks for writing!!!  (Bouncy from finding out there will be a few more chaps than expected!)

Oi on the moving!  My least favorite activity ever!  You have my utmost sympathy.

Once again, I think you've cloned my arguments with the men in my life! lol   guess certain elements are just terribly universal.   :D  Love it.  Still really looking forward to their conversation.  Her inner rationalization on things was spot on.  I have a feeling E will be much more eager to leave Seattle now! lol

Adore that Bella found the inner strength to protect herself and her loved one!  She was a great blend of damsel and heroine.  Pure damsel would have driven me nuts!

You truely wrote a terrifying James.  Obsession without rational thought is far more scary than suprernatural forces, and we're even more powerless against it.

Each update truely reminds me why you're on the short list of my fav authors in the fandom!  Thanks for writing and sharing!!!

Gorgeous wedding!!  One of the best I've seen in ff ever!  Delicious tingles, giggles and tender tearful moments.  I love the solution for everyone to move and can envision it actually going well despite the economy.

Good Golly!  I can't blame Rose for watching that hotness! Gah, I just love what you do!!

I'm really going to miss this fic!  So many of my favs are winding up, and I adore knowing what happens but miss the journey!

Glad you're settled in again!  I'd refuse too!! :S

That was one of the most original Twi weddings I have read (and one I wish I'd known about when it was my turn 10 years ago, since I would have mimicked it!! lol)!  Loved it and agree whole heartedly with Alice.

Loved Alice here, btw. lol Methinks personal experience added flavor to that scene?  ;D

REALLY loved E's line about loving his scary, scary woman!!! *mwhahahaha* 

I'm so sad to see this officially end as well, and appreciate why you are doing it. Am glad I get to look forward to some little dribbles in the future to salve my yearning for more! :D    Have adored taking this journey with you!  Thanks for writing and sharing!!!


From the beginning, to the most atrocious acts ever committed by vampires, Bella is about to learn she had a bigger role in history than she ever knew.  And it all starts with hazy memories of a past that is hauntingly unfamiliar but very real.  Then, strong and confident, a mysterious stranger happens into her life, turning eveything upside down. 

Her past is coming back and will haunt everyone she knows.

Nothing she thought she should fear is true.

Everyone she loves will suffer.

Everyone she cares for will fight.

But, Bella's world will never survive unless she breaks the ties to her past...
