With record temperatures rendering our Aussie fic-h00r sisters (and brothers) senseless, those of us living in more boring countries can’t be too envious of the chance they have of spotting our Rob working hard on filming the Rover right there, right now.
In solidarity with them and him, we have decided to dedicate this week to Hotward. We have fics so incredibly sexy they had us sizzling.

Ride ~ Bella wanted to fulfill a fantasy – to be groped inside a crowded train. She gets her wish and more, when a sex-starved ex-convict decides she’s fair game. ALLHUMAN. Mature but with plot.
One of the things I love the most about Ride is how different this Edward and Bella are to each other – Edward is a convicted criminal just out of jail, Bella is a college student studying so that she can work in law enforcement. Oh, the irony. But when these two meet, they are like hydrogen and oxygen coming together to make water – an essential element.

A certain dr offers his services.She has 7 days to learn. They engage in a world of sexual experimentation. ExB,some Darkward. Smut.
Rated: Fiction M – English – Romance/Humor – Bella & Edward – Chapters: 6 – Words: 23,708 – Reviews: 483 – Favs: 518 – Follows: 212 – Updated: 06-10-11 – Published: 12-10-09 – Status: Complete – id: 5570410
The title tells you a lot about this story, and yes, even though Bella is a doctor in this story, she is a bit of an idiot when it comes to relationships. She swoons daily over her colleague, Dr “McDreamy” Black and lo and behold, he asks her out. Scared of being out-of-practice for her date she accepts her other colleague (and thorn in her side) Dr Edward Cullen’s proposal to “train” her for her date.
Over the nights leading up to her date with Dr Black we are treated to Edward’s swoon-worthy, and hotter than hell training. All I can say is, my Human Resources Department doesn’t offer training like this! *mutter* *grumble*
As the reader, you quickly pick up that Edward is not just doing Bella a favour; apparently Bella is the only blind one in this scenario – and boy is it fun watching B open her eyes and her heart to this incredibly HOT and sweet Edward.

Driving Miss Swan ~ Bella suffers from an intense driving phobia but wants to get her licence. Can her driving instructor teach her to overcome her fears behind the wheel? AH ExB OOC Fluffy fun One Shot.
Rated: Fiction M – English – Humor/Romance – Edward & Bella – Words: 6,598
Put all thoughts of a gentleman driving an elderly lady in a vintage car right out of your mind. This hilarious hot one shot would give poor Miss Daisy palpitations.
Bella Swan has a driving phobia and the unsuspecting Edward Cullen is the latest in a long line of unfortunate driving instructors. Not one to be beaten, and feeling quite guilty, Edward devises a way to… mmmh, how do I put this without sharing Edward’s unique instruction method? Let me just say, it definitely would not be approved by any reputable driving instruction association. I don’t suppose that matters though, as I doubt Edward has plans to patent his most unusual way of putting this particular learner at ease.
I can tell you, however, his unique take on overcoming this roadblock is certainly approved of by the suddenly quick learning and keen Miss Swan. She soon gets to grips with the stick as she learns how to shift into the ideal position under Mr. Cullen’s expert tutelage, humming nicely into top gear. Hot Mr. Cullen knows exactly which pedals to push to have her accelerating, IYKWIM?
Do not stop – give this red-hot fic the green light and read it now.

Hot Landing Zone ~Edward Cullen blames scientist Isabella Swan for getting them stranded on a remote island. But hell, Edward can improvise, adapt, and overcome…as long as Bella stops driving him wild…
When we decided to make this edition of FanFiction Friday HOT HOT HOT, I immediately knew which Twific I wanted to review. It was one of the first stories I read when I was introduced to the world of fan fiction back in 2009 and it is one of my “go to” fics when I want something familiar to read. (We all have those fics in our lists, don’t we?)
Hot Landing Zone by hjb2006 is a complete E&B fic that has a little bit of everything, from explosions to condom-covered machine guns to skinny-dipping. At only eight chapters, it is a relatively short story, but it packs a powerful punch. One of the things that surprised and impressed me about this fic was the level of character development hjb2006 was able to attain in such a short tale. It didn’t feel forced or scripted. It’s well written with only a few typos here and there and the plot is phenomenal. To me, it’s kind of like a cross between the movies Castaway and Heartbreak Ridge. Yes, that’s an odd combination, but I think you’ll agree with my assessment once you read it.
I’ve selected a few excerpts to give you a little taste of Hot Landing Zone. I hope you enjoy…
The first excerpt is from Chapter 2 when Bella finds herself in a precarious situation.
Bella climbed to her feet, too aware of her inabilities right now. She didn’t particularly care all that much for the beach in the first place, preferring the creature comforts of her house, her lab. Moisturizer.
“Well, you wanted to lose a few pounds,” she muttered. “Now’s your chance.”
Good God. She was talking to herself-out loud.
A rustling noise startled her and she whipped around towards the woods, moving left, then right, unsure what to do and praying it wasn’t a wild boar, then wondering if they could swim.
Then he stepped out of the dark forest.
Tarzan in a tight black tee shirt and pants.
And combat boots. A Marine.
Bella was so thrilled to see him she ran and threw herself into his arms. “Oh, thank heavens. I thought I was alone.”
Edward stood still, unmoved by the soft, shapely woman pressed up against him. When she looked up, he arched a brow. “Alone? How’d you think you got from the water to the shore? Didn’t the gear beside you give you a clue?”
She stepped back. “What gear?”
He inclined his head.
She looked. “Oh.” Her face flushed.
“Yeah, oh. Some rocket scientist,” he said bitterly.
“Whatever.” He started walking.
“You don’t have to be rude.”
He stopped, and Bella nearly plowed into his back. He glared down at her like she was some bug, clearly more than a little annoyed at their situation.
“Lady, we are stuck here because you didn’t obey my orders. Because you had to have your notes and that bag!”
The scenario that leads to Scientist Bella and Marine Edward being stranded on a beach reads like a well-crafted spy novel. You are going to love it. You will also love the UST that quickly develops as they are stuck together for days on end. Here’s a little taste from Chapter 3.
“I’m coming with you.”
“Don’t order me around like a Marine. I am not one.” His look said she wasn’t even close. “And I will not just sit here like an obedient child.” She picked up her shoes and was about to put them on when he took them, sapping off the heels without so much as a strain.
She gasped at them for a moment, shrugged and slipped them on, then grunted. “Lead the way.”
Edward stared at her for a second as she secured strands of her hair in the bun, then gave in. It was probably best to keep her close. “Stay in step, and do as I say this time.”
“Follow orders, I know. God forbid I disobey you again. We might find ourselves captured by cannibals.”
“That’s not too far off. Southeast Indonesia still has cannibalistic tribes.”
Her eyes flew wide and Edward thought, she couldn’t lie her way out of a damn thing- her expressions gave her away too much. He faced forward, hiding his amusement as they trekked through the jungle.
He really shouldn’t tease her, but it was just too damn tempting. Like the woman herself. It was just his luck to get stuck on a deserted island with Playmate of the Year.
Only she didn’t know it.
Edward glanced back. She froze, a strained “I didn’t do anything wrong, did I?” look on her amazing face. Nope, she had no idea how tantalizing she was. If she knew, he’d be toast.
You soon find out that Edward is not the only one on that island with naughty thoughts. However, just as passion sparks, talk of their pasts and divergent backgrounds damper their desires.
Her lips curved, her gaze searching his for the truth. “Don’t tease me, Edward.”
“I’m not.” Unable to resist it, he plowed his fingers into her hair. “It’s like a fire trapped in there. I had no idea it was that long.”
He had never touched her like this and her breasts suddenly felt too big for her bra, and everything below her waist went warm and liquid soft. “It’s just hair.”
“But it’s part of who you really are.”
Bella was so deeply touched, her throat tightened; slowly, she shifted her gaze to his. His every nuance battered her with a sudden heat and awareness, his sent, the carved muscles of his chest, her need to touch him. She tipped her face up a little more, and he gravitated toward her. For a blessed moment she thought he’d kiss her, and she realized how badly she wanted him.
Then his knuckles slipped from her hair, the backs of his knuckles grazing her breast. One finger slid lazily down over the swell at the edge of her bra, and Bella swore her bones melted. “The dancing was…interesting.”
“You betcha.” He lowered his hand, but didn’t step back, his dark gaze scorching over her face. “Now that I know what’s beneath that plain- Jane scientist, it’s going to be hell keeping my hand off you.”
“Why would it?”
He groaned, moving back and scraping his hand over his head. “Because no matter what I want, this isn’t the real world, Doc.”
Doc. Bella’s heart sank so hard her throat ached. “I see. Because in the real world, you wouldn’t come near me, right?”
“No, you wouldn’t come near me.”
Her eyes narrowed dangerously, anger piercing her tone. “You’re assuming a lot about me, Edward.” She leaned in to add, “Don’t.”
I think you’ll see that Hot Landing Zone is the perfect fic to get you HOT HOT HOT, so I hope you’ll give it a try.
Many thanks to the wonderful ladies from the Mine To Mark Contest for bringing us Possessiveward. They said “Give us Darkward, Jerkward, Domward, Vampward or even Sweetward… as long as he’s Possessive…”
To us, those words spell HOT!
We have chosen our three favourite one-shots to give you a tantalizing taste of Possessiveward.
The Auction House ~ Natural born non-human females are extinct. Humans know of the supernatural world and protect their females, just not well enough. Welcome to the Auction House.
Words: 5,880 Genre(s): Drama/General Rated: M
This striking fic won 3rd Place in the Public Vote and Honorable Mention in the Judges Vote. It also won both Catastrophia’s and Rose Arcadia’s Judge Picks; these are their reasons why in their own words.
Catastrophia’s Pick – ”The Auction House was my favorite. It was the little nuances on Bella’s part that really made it for me. She was as drawn to him as he was to her. You could feel the need for each other coming off the page. And damn, claiming her in front of everyone? Hot! *fans self*”
RoseArcadia’s Pick – “I found The Auction House to be very erotic and enjoyable. I’m usually an All Human girl, but every now and then I like a vamp fic that contains a good mating plot mixed with a dash of animalistic passion and lust. And the nature of the claiming, well, I liked the kink of it…what can I say?!”
Edward’s deep desire, his sense of urgency, his connection to his woman, his basic instinct that could not be denied, all combined to make this hot fic bang our gavel! Just between us, we liked the kink too!
Thank You For Waiting ~ When a mysterious stranger moves in next door to Bella in the middle of the night, he awakens something inside her that she didn’t even realize she yearned for.

They may have been waiting for each other, but what are you waiting for? Go read Thank You For Waiting – NOW.
We are squeeing in excitement and very proud to announce that the winner of an Honorable Mention in the Public Vote, 3rd Place Judges Vote, Most Original Judges Vote, and SoapyMahem’s Judges Pick, is our very own Gingerandgreen with Kimberly Diamond.
Kimberley Diamond – In Kimberley, a diamond mining town in the Northern Cape, South Africa, 1872: a frontier bride meets her very certain destiny.
Genre: Romance Word Count: 7127 Pairing: Edward and Bella
SoapyMayhem’s Pick – “So it was really hard to decide which of these wonderful entries I love most, but when it came right down to it, I had to choose Kimberly Diamond. There was a lightness and playfullness to it that I loved, even though some of the themes were particularly tragic. Poor Bella was thrust into such an awful situation, but she didn’t let it get her down. Edward was sexy and confident, fighting for the one he wanted even though he already knew she belonged to him. This one was intriguing and unlike anything I’ve read before. Kudos!”
*AllyVera’s take on Kimberley Diamond*
I love historical fics. I love possessive Edwards and I LOVE an instant connection between Edward and Bella. I am also always in awe when an author can make a mere one chapter a fulfilling and rewarding read. So naturally Kimberley Diamond was a winner all round for me!
The story is set in South Africa in the late 1800’s and English Bella has just arrived to be a new Bride. The catch? There are five men vying for her hand… one of them is a very hot and sweet Edward. Those other four men don’t stand a chance!
