Wow, Bella is ready to give up her life to this killer to save her loved ones... It makes me wonder why this killer is after her and why she is giving in to him. Reading on!



Author's Response:

I'm glad you liked it.  All will be revealed in due time ;)  Thanks so much for reading and reviewing.

Well Bella has Edward on her mind! I wonder who called Bella 'Sugar'?



Author's Response:

LOL, can you blame her?!  Thanks so much for reading and reviewing.

Well I hope that was Jasper calling Bella sugar and not the bad guy.  I live in Oregon and my daughter lives in Portland. I've been to the downtown Saks. I don't think I could survive an Alice shopping trip! LOL! Love how caring Tommy is, calling Bella every morning to check on her dreams. Edward was pretty sweet to rescue Bella. Enjoying! 



Author's Response:

I've never been to Oregon.  I did all my research online.  I would be tired with very sore feet, but I would love a shopping trip with Alice :)  Tommy is such a sweetheart.  I based him off a dear friend who is for all intents and purposes my little brother.  I loved writing this Edward.  It was so easy to write Sweetward as so many people have called him.

Thanks so much for reading and reviewing.

I forgot that Mike had a Southern accent.... So who is the stalker? Mmmm.  Soccer playing Edward is pretty hot! I laughed when Bella teased Edward with Em. Like your sweet Edward. Enjoying.



Author's Response:

I couldn't resist soccer playing Edward.  LOL, of course I wrote that chapter during soccer practice for my son and thought, "Hmm, Edward needs to play soccer :)"  I almost left out Bella and Em teasing Edward.  It seemed very forward of Bella, but decided it showed how comfortable she was with all of the Cullens.  *sigh* Sweetward.

Thanks so much for reviewing.

Well at least Bella had a nice birthday. It was good to meet Tommy, it must be hard for him with his mother dead and the stalker James. Why hasn't she gone to the authorities?? Does she have a restraining order against him? I guess there's still a lot of blanks to be filled.  I am glad that Edward and Bella talked. So Edward feels the same as Bella and he feels the sparks and the pull. Taking it slow is good. I loved it when Bella talked to Rose and Alice about how safe and protected she felt with Edward. Safer than with anyone else. So I wonder what Rose is going to tell Tanya? She sounds like trouble. (claws...)   Enjoying.



Author's Response:

It's hard for Tommy losing his mom, but he wasn't as tormented as Bella by James.  He is more bothered that Bella's life was so disrupted by James and still is.  Bella has been through all of this with the authorities concerning James and feels it won't help.  Plus, she doesn't want to draw any attention to herself.

How can you not love Edward and feel safe with him?  You know Rose has Bella's back ;)

I'm glad you are liking the story.  Thanks so much for your reviews.

Oh! Now I feel bad thinking that Tanya would be trouble. Good twist, I never thought she would be killed...by James, I bet. Like seeing Bella and Edward getting closer. First kiss for them....really first kiss for Bella. I worry about the gang...I am sure they are all in danger. I keep thinking about the prologue.... Love all the TW references. Renee's death really sucked. So they do have a restraining order, but James is too elusive. I'm surprised Charlie didn't have Bella disapear for awhile.   Enjoying!



Author's Response:

I didn't want huge drama with Tanya.  I needed someone to be killed and it just fit that it would be her.  James is a sneaky little bastard so restraining orders really don't mean anything to him.  Even if Charlie wanted Bella to disappear he felt she would be safer with him and he couldn't just up and leave his job as Chief of police.

You are completely awesome for reviewing :)

Oh I think Edward feels the same way as Bella. She picked up on him saying 'Love' to her...he loves her! Well Edward won over Charlie, Tommy's friends and stuck up for Bella against Amy. Looks like the Swan kids are falling in love!



Author's Response:

This was such a fun chapter to write.  Eddie is one smooth operator.  He knows the way to a woman's heart is through the ones she loves.

Thanks for reviewing!

Sweet look at Charlie and his love for his daughter.



Author's Response:

This was my first venture into writing Charlie and I loved it.  He is such an interesting character.  There's nothing better than an overprotective daddy who is truly a teddy bear deep down.  I know you're probably tired of hearing it, but your reviews are greatly appreciated.

Edward was so romantic and so sweet when he told Bella he loved her. I love that Bella asked Esme to be her 'mother' so she could confide in her. I can see the wheels turning in Bella's head...she's worried about the safety of her loved ones and she fears she will never be happy....sigh.



Author's Response:

I'm such a sap.  I love all things romantic.  Sweetward just wouldn't be the same if he wasn't romantic.  Poor Bella needs that role of mother in her life desperately.  Isn't it just typical Bella to be worried about everyone else's safety and well-being above her own?  Thanks again for the great review.

How is James watching them? Why haven't they closed the school down? So Bella is preparing for her escape so that James will go after her.



Author's Response:

All will be revealed about James in due time.  Now wouldn't it make too much sense to close the school down?  Of course this is fiction and that doesn't work with my plot ;)  LOL.  Thanks for reviewing!

Reviewer: marijee Signed

Loved the costumes.  How is James always there and watching? James is way too creepy.  I can feel the tension building.



Author's Response:

Thanks!  The costumes were so much fun to fine.  James is a sneaky, slimy snake, and yes, he is extremely creepy.  Thanks so much for your reviews!

Reviewer: marijee Signed

Love how Bella is standing up for herself...but she's playing with fire. I bet Edward is going crazy.  James kind of gave some personal information to Bella.  He is totally losing it.



Author's Response:

Bella just wouldn't be Bella if she didn't play with fire.  Yes, poor Eddie is going crazy.  LOL, I don't think James ever had it to lose.

Reviewer: marijee Signed
Date: 28 Jan 2010 Title: Chapter 15: Chapter 13

Yay! Edward to the rescue. Silly Bella thinking she could pull this off and forgetting her phone. Thank goodness James is dead...will they find Victoria?



Author's Response:

Nothing better than Edward riding in on his white horse to save the day :)  Obviously Bella wasn't thinking too clearly, and thank goodness for that.  Yes, James is dead.  He will not rise from the grave.  Now, Victoria...you'll just have to wait and see.  Thanks so much for reviewing!

Oh Damn!! Edward has it all wrong...he saw Carlisle's care for Bella as love...we know it as his need to possess her for his own. Sigh. I'm afraid that Edward and Bella are going to have a rude awakening from this sweet bubble they are in right now. I wonder if Bella remembers that birthday? The boy Edward was like 'my' Edward. I hope he stays strong, and believes whatever Bella says to him.  They both need to remember their love for each other and how special it is.  Thank you for writing.

Date: 07 Feb 2010 Title: Chapter 47: Chapter 46

Bella missed an opportunity to tell Edward about her fears regarding Carlisle.  I am glad though that Bella did tell Edward she didn't like being held down. They do need to keep talking. Edward needs to remember to discuss all aspects of their life with Bella. I am sure Edward was just wanting to get married as soon as the house was completed, but he needs to discuss these things with Bella first. The making love without protection...Edward's a doctor and he knows about these things, and he should know if Bella is taking any birth control. I know Edward is trying...but I think he still has some control issues going on. Oh gods...here comes Carlisle and his plan to take Bella away from Edward. I wonder how he will react when he sees the engagement ring and knows Bella is no longer a virgin? Will it ruin his plans and he will give up or will it just make it easier for him to do what he wants. There is the matter of Bella's age and Carlisle's guardianship. Sigh! Thank you for writing.

I am glad that Bella feels she doesn't want to give up. I am hoping that Edward will return again to Bella's 'my Edward' after the guests are gone. I am hoping that Edward has just been putting up a front and he really isn't reverting to 'old Edward'. No one should ever have to go throught what Esme did. Her story is so sad. She is such a strong woman.

Reviewer: marijee Signed

Oh I am so happy that Carlisle is dead. I would love to know where Esme planted his ashes. Now there is nothing holding Bella there. I hope she goes away to college and has a life...and then if she wants she can come back to Edward. I know that she loves Edward, just as he loves her, but things have been so twisted for her. She's been like A POW.  She needs time. Let's hope Edward loves her enough to let her go.

Reviewer: marijee Signed

I am so happy for Bella. Edward had the courage and love to let Bella go. She left with her Aunt and Uncle and now she's in college. This is the life that Bella dreamed of. It may not be the perfect life...she still has so much past to deal with...but she is working on finding herself.

Edward has been waiting so patiently for this date. (after canceled date) Bella and Edward are having a first date...that is so good!

I like how Bella used the money for the shelter and Esme and Alice are a big part of it. I am glad they are moving on in a Carlisless world.

Thank you for writing.

Ah poor Bella! Edward didn't take it very well did he? Perhaps they should have had this talk sooner, but like Bella said they haven't known each other very long...when do you bring things up like that in a relationship? I am hoping Edward was just surprised and will get over it. I am sure Bella is really hurt by this, but knowing her she'll just figure it's her lot in life to be alone....sigh!

Sounds like a bad time for Edward to not answer his calls. So everyone gave Edward some tough love. I liked Leah. She's direct and a good friend to Bella. Edward needs to figure things out. It is a decision...I mean Bella could still get cancer. Can he deal with that? Enjoying.

So limbo it is.  I think Edward is back for Bella, it's just too difficult with Esme being hurt so bad. I think this does take precedent...at least for now.

Edward's family takes her in and she does need it.  The pictures are something I found while writing on the other site and I had to create an album, but now I get to put them at the bottom so more people see them.  I'm a really visual person, so it helps to show you guys what I was thinking about.

I loved watching Bella show her intelligence. She kept it from her father, but she couldn't keep it from her Tony...and he is pleased.

Gossip is an ugly thing that sometimes grows a life of it's own. I hope Bella can stay immune to their words. It's wonderful that Carlisle confided in Bella letting her know his plans for abdication and her insertion into the strategy meetings. Very progressive of King Carlisle. I can understand Edward's frustration. His family and country seem to be so much more enlightened that that of France. Enjoying.

Yeah, I would think that Bella would like to have Edward back in more ways than one. She misses him so and this whole situation with Lady Tanya sucks.

I wonder who the snake in their midst is? I have a feeling that the royal women will find out! I am sure their men would be freaking out if they knew though! LOL! Enjoying.

I was hoping that Jacob would be able to visit soon! Not only Jacob, but Renee too! This will be  happy Christmas for Bella. I am glad the war seems to be over before it started. There will always be people wanting to stir up trouble for power and money. Bella and Edward saw that clearly in the faces of the advisors of the court. Enjoying.

So I wonder who Tanya will name that will end up being the person who killed Newton? Will it be someone that will totally surprise them? One of the counselors? Some of those men did not seem happy at Bella and Edward's news of an heir, or that she will be prominent in the political talks. I wonder what Tanya's fate will be? I thought it good and clever of Bella to send for Edward to hear the ladies talk with Tanya. It shows trust. Enjoying.

So James...eh! I loved Bella setting him in his place and telling him he would soon be 'worm food'. All of Tanya's family were in on it or coerced. I think it the judgement was just. King Calisle could have killed them all to make an example of them. Hopefully they will be broken enough to not try any retribution. So it looks like Edward and Bella will be taking over England soon. That's good and bad. They will be able to reign as they want, but it will also be a heavy burden. Enjoying.

I had wondered when Renee thought Bella was showing a lot more than she did at the same time in her pregnancies. So twins. I am going for a boy and a girl. The best of both worlds! You've already picked names...so I won't go there! Bella are now King and Queen. Alice is having her baby! Enjoying.

Poor Bella having to go through Alice's difficult birthing as she waited for her own children to be born. But Yay! Alice came through ok and has a lovely little girl. I liked the name too! Yes, it's all about finding balance. I am sure Bella and Edward's love will keep them on the right path.

Yay! No one was seriously hurt. However...I think the trauma is going to stay for awhile. I was so proud of Bella...she was so calm and collected after her early stuttering. She was amazing. I am glad you wrote a strong Bella! I also enjoyed all the drama and suspense of these last two chapters.

Where Bella is staying sounds lovely...the town and the Villa. I am enjoying reading Bella's thoughts and how she feels about Edward...just Edward...not the famous man.

Bella sounds as though she had an unhappy life...her father and alcoholic and it sounds as if Jacob was about the same. Oh and he hurt Bella. That makes me angry! I hope Jacob got his, and didn't get away with it. Or did Bella just leave? Enjoying.

The body shot scene was so hot! The Ust just boiling off both of them!

It was interesting to hear how Edward came into the BDSM scene and that Jazz was part of it too. I laughed when Edward found out about Alice being a sub and punching Jazz in the face! LOL! No more scenes together! It is good that they can talk about their lifestyle together.

So when are Bella and Edward going to give into this lust? Enjoying.

The morning after the tequila body shots was a bit awkward for Bella, though she did enjoy it. Jealousward shows up at the market. The meadow sounded lovely with the stream running through it. Thoughts of Jacob...he was terrible and cruel. Bella really freaked out when Edward called her his Pet. I am guessing Jacob called her that. I feel bad for Bella thinking  how she was interested in BDSM caused her problems with Jake and she was a freak. I am glad that Edward told her she wasn't.

So Bella found out who Esme was. LOL! I liked that as Edward explained his life style to Bella he also was angry at Jacob. Yeah...what Jacob did was abuse and was not done with care for the other person. Bella is interested, but she's afraid too. Enjoying.

I think Bella's feelings about whether what they were doing made them unnatural. I think that Edward gave her a good answer, but I think it's something Bella is also going to have to come to grips with herself. She has some baggage and I think that Edward is going to have to be careful. Their last session did go wonderfully!

I love that Bella has a fan crush on Jasper Whitlock. I loved her blush when she met him. Alice is really a force isn't she? I was happy that Bella stood up for herself...well as much as you can with Alice. They are all getting to know one another.

It seems to me that Edward is being a Dom all the time. He is jealous and possessive. I do think they need to talk. Are they doing D/s 24/7? He should have informed Bella that she was his sub before they went out. I think Edward has some adjusting to do too.

Poor Bella has one disapointment after another. Her parents are non-existant, her ex boyfriend abused her and now her friend has moved in with her enemy and didn't bother to tell her. Just left her high and dry. Bella has a lot of abandonment issues and Edward needs to keep telling her he is there for her. So I wonder when we will get to meet Angela and Lauren...and Jacob.

No wonder Bella left. Edward left her and he was out of control before. Bella was frightened of Edward. She wasn't wearing his collar and yet he treated her like she was wearing it. He said he didn't want to be 24/7 yet he seems to be that way. They need to talk....if he can find Bella.

I am glad that they talked. Both had concerns about the whole 'Jim' thing and how Bella feels unworthy of Edward. I think the talk went well. This is so overwhelming for Bella. I think some for Edward too. This love they have and then the D/s complicates it all. Bella is afraid of losing herself and she's used to being independent.

I liked this chapter. It really showed the depth of Bella's pain. Her loss of both parents when Renee left  and what that did to her. Carlisle is right about the addictive cycle. Bella has to conquer that. Every time she's upset she throws up...or doesn't eat. 

I chuckled about the fact that Esme knows too about their lifestyle...but then since Carlisle knows...so would Esme, they share everything. Now Charlie knows! He was pretty accepting of it too.

These two can't get a break can they. They keep trying to get it right...both going to therapy, trying to work out their fears and this happens. It seems to me that Billy shouldn't have a leg to stand on. Jacob did break in and did hit Bella. I was glad that Edward went and talked to Jasper and Alice. Poor Alice. Edward did abandon her. I hope that Alice and Jasper work things out.

Yay for Bella! She finally told Renee off. I hope that Renee stays out of their lives. I think therapy with Paul is going well. Bella and Edward do have a challange...with their issues and relationship. Sometimes I think Edward is too dominent, even when Bella isn't collared. What they did today with Bella getting to pick was a good thing for both of them...a stretch.

There was an awful lot going on in this chapter. Engagement, missing Edward, art show... No wonder Bella kind of hit a wall. I can't imagine what it would be like to sell part of yourself. I think for Bella that's what selling her paintings were like. She put a lot of herself into them and now they are gone. At least she knew she had to go to Paul and then he sent for Edward. Edward and Bella were just out of tune there for a bit. This time alone will help them reconnect.

Oh and Bella and her parents...sigh. Hopefully she can work through that. But yeah...they really did a number on her.
