I think we’ve established Bella’s very responsible. The thing is, stuff like this happens. To responsible people. To smart people. And it happens all the time. Show me a person who’s never made a heat-of-the-moment mistake, and I’ll show you someone who’s either lying or hasn’t really lived. Having problems believing Bella could get caught […]





“It was bad enough coming back from dinner to find my birth control pill and a glass of water laid out for me on a silver tray.” I turn away from him and put my head down on the pillow. “I have to draw the line somewhere.” His body goes tense and, though he relaxes […]





I sit on my legs and try to remember when I last had my period. I know I was crazy PMSed that morning I flipped off the paps—I wouldn’t have done it otherwise. As obnoxious as they can be, I generally operate with a tad more class. I spent that night in Edward’s guest room, […]





un-beta’d, subject to change, etc. “Then you’re ready.” He takes one of my hands in his and lays the other on his shoulder. “Step back with your right foot and follow my lead… And right-left-together. Right-left-together…” The pressure he puts on my hand is just enough for me to know where to move and when […]





“Don’t be nervous. We don’t have to do anything more than you usually do.” “This is already more than I usually do,” I admit. “Would it make you feel better to know this is more than I’ve ever done? At least, it is without having—” “An NDA.” I roll my eyes. “I know.” “That, too, […]





Unbeta’d, subject to change, different from the one I sent with review replies, and all my usual disclaimers. Meanwhile, anyone up for some strip billiards? When a prince gets naked, everyone wins! “You have to understand, the monarchy is its own entity. I may be part of it, but it doesn’t belong to me. Hell, […]





“Esme didn’t start to feel at home here until she redecorated her living space. I don’t know. Maybe you’d feel better if you made your apartment more a reflection of who you are.” “Possibly. Then again, I don’t anticipate being here that long. It’s fine for me, but there’s not enough space for a family.” […]





Unbeta’d and different from the one I sent in review replies. I take a deep breath. “Let me get this straight. I’m a hypocritical bitch for being angry you threw up on me?” “No. You’re a bitch for refusing to accept my apology for throwing up on you, you’re a bitch for reminding me I […]





Un’beta’d, subject to change, and different from the one I’m sending in review replies. I know I’m behind in updating the story on my website. I’m hoping to get to it tonight.   As angry as I am with him, I don’t fight when he pulls me into his arms. For a while, he rocks me […]





Before I can protest, I’m alone with Prince Edward. He’s back to glaring at me, his face every bit as hard to read as it was before. I square my shoulders and meet his gaze. It’s our usual game, but this time—for me, anyway—it’s not about winning. I might have gone to business school instead […]
