Random Rita ~ Friday Feature Fics!


Evenin’, ladies!

Two quickies for you today! Both perfect for breakin’ the Mobward streak I’ve been on for what seems like ages LOL!

First up is a brand new story by Windchymes, author of one of my favorite fics ever…The Keepsake



A lot can happen in eight days…

While helpin’ a friend who owns a motocycle dealership in Sydney, Australia with a computer problem, Bella notices the name Edward Masen in his client database. Of course, she was unable to resist snoopin’!

According to the Thunder Road database, Mr Masen had bought a silver Kawasaki Ninja H2R eight months ago. It was a special order and my jaw dropped at the price he’d paid. My jaw dropped further when I saw the top speed listed in the specifications. Apparently the Ninja H2R was capable of doing 340 kilometres an hour. So Mr Masen was wealthy, and he liked some serious speed. I swallowed hard as my hand tightened around the mouse.

His personal information listed an address an hour away at Palm Beach. His sales consultant had been someone called George. Not Marc, then. He’d paid upfront, the full amount, without a payment plan. And he’d used a premium platinum credit card to do it.

Edward Cullen had had a premium platinum credit card. He’d always paid upfront, the full amount, for everything he bought.

He’d liked to drive fast.

But he would never live in the sun. He would never live in a house at Palm Beach. I was being stupid. And I didn’t know what bothered me more; seeing his name again, or my reaction to it…

Did I want it to be him?

“No.” Not now. Not anymore.

Oh, boy! I can hardly wait ’cause you know it’s him…it’s gotta be!


Next up, a brand new author with her first fic set in the 1800’s! Woo hoo…I love me a good Cowboyward!

Edward Cullen never expected to fall in love the way he did until he found the perfect girl for him. He knew where he was going in life with his loving family by his side. She, on the other hand, not so much.

Edward and Emmett are herdin’ cattle when a riderless horse storms past! Edward backtracks hopin’ to find whoever was ridin’ it!

The girl looked up at me with red cheeks and glassy brown eyes. Long brown hair stuck to her sweaty face and forehead. I chastised myself for noticing just how beautiful she was in a situation like this. Her blue dress brought out her pale skin, which was flushed red from the brutal sun and the obvious pain. Her whimper and groan brought me back from my thoughts and to the leg she was clutching even tighter. More tears spilled down her face.

I could easily see that the leg was broken, the right side was caved in slightly and bending left. I could feel the break just by brushing my hand over it, but I stopped as soon as she hissed and jerked the leg away, just making the pain worse.

She cried out and went to grip it again, but I grabbed her hands and shook my head.

“Touching will just make it worse. I’m going to pick you up and take you to my Pa, okay? He’s a doctor and will get your leg all fixed up.” I noticed her scraped palms, but I’m sure she cared about her leg much more than some missing skin and blood. I needed to get her up on my horse and then head back to Emmett.

So, what’s a young girl like that doin’ out in the middle of nowhere all by herself?  She had to have been desperate to get away from something or someone, right?

Well, if you’re curious, you know what to do LOL!


Am I completely cured of Mobwarditis, now? Noooo! I’ve been persuaded to start SexyLexiCullen’s Storm series…finally *facepalm!*



“Two weeks. Two years. Who cares?” A lesson in love, crime, and passion. When two young lovers find themselves in the middle of the storm, can love conquer all? AH. OOC. Rated M Mafia fic. Humor/Romance/Violence/Drama…you name it, QS has it, or will. Canon couples. Not canon characters. (Mafia fic) MobWard

Chapters: 49 Completed: Yes Published: 01 Apr 2011 Updated: 03 Jan 2013


Haven’t gotten but a few chapters in but OMFG! People ain’t lyin’ when they claim this is one of the best Mobwards “evah!”

Well, I showed you mine…you show me yours!

Happy Friday, y’all!

    I did the sneak read at work of Eight Days, and am following. Windchymes is an excellent writer! So excited for this one!

    I keep seeing pretty banners for The Gentleman’s Mare – but I haven’t started it yet. Maybe because she’s a new writer, and I wanted to make sure she’d finish it? Not sure why I’ve held off starting it.

    Congrats for shaving out a big chunk of time to read the Quiet Storm series. The first story mesmerized me for sure!

    What I just started based on one of the stories in the compilation for Meli https://www.fanfiction.net/u/7714837/Words-of-Love-for-Meli dedication is a new story to me:

    Heaven Sent
    By: Bubbleybear
    Edward is doing his job, teaching high school, but he isn’t happy. He’s the only single in a coven of happily mated vampires. Edward is lonely until a new student teacher steps into his class room. She’s his mate, but is she even human? AU, OCC


    And our girl Alicia added another chapter to That Night. It’s over 7000 words, so I’m going to read it after my nap.

    • rita01tx

      I saw that…right while I was tryin’ to put my post together LOL! I’ll get on it when I wake up ’cause I’m goin’ to bed now!
      Laters BB! MWAH!!!

    • An update for That Night?! Be right back…

    • rita01tx

      I’ve only read a couple stories for Meli…bless her heart, I hope she comes out of this fight on top! And Heven Sent is naggin’ me to pick it up ’cause I really really really FLUV Vampward! Hell’n it’s a toss up between Vampward and Mobward *poutyface!*

  2. Another great post. Windychimes is back!

    • rita01tx

      Thanks for your kind words…I try! And Havin’ a new story from Windchymes is a definite reason to celebrate *high five!*

  3. I’m lovin the recs this week. The Keepsake is a fave of mine, so I’m definitely going to have to add Eight Days to my must-read list. And I am a huge sucker for westernWards, so I’m am very excited. Now, as for you starting The Quiet Storm, I’m stamping my feet. I would’ve enjoyed reading with you. We were of like minds though because after last week’s extended Mobfic discussion, where I proclaimed I was taking a break, I caved and decided to jump into CaraNo’s This Life. Every time I try to get out, something keeps pulling me back in. (Mob humour, yes? No?) Anywho I wavered between the two series we talked about and This Life. I opted for the latter as it was a single read.

    • rita01tx

      Well, I can’t blame you for startin’ with This Life, Kay darlin’! However, it wouldn’t surprise me if you finish This Life and start Quiet Storm before I get much further ’cause…distractions, distractions, distractions! Just sayin’ LMAO!

      • This Life is good, but I too know all too well about distractions. My young’uns are on spring break from school this week. I have a feeling I may be doing some late night reading this week, when those distractions are all tucked in for the night.

        • rita01tx

          Late night readin’ has become a way of life in my house, too LOL! Hell’n I’ve been so busy with updates and workin’ on my TBR today {and pervin’ on Rob on tumblr} I haven’t read more than ten words of Quiet Storm, nor could I even tell you which ten words they were LMAO!

  4. Windchymes write the best NM stories and Keepsake is also one of my favorite,… all of her stories are in my favorite list 🙂 and I can’t wait to read more about this new story of hers.
    I put The-Gentleman-s-Mare on alert, I try to catch up with all my wip… so this one will wait for the moment.
    and GAH Rita you make me grab Storm series… grrr (I know it that I will not resist now I need to find time to read it )

    I read Dirt Road thanks for rec’d … I was happy because I read it at home… priceless!
    I read also this one …. very funny
    Carlisle has had it with the children’s constant bickering so he sends the Cullen’s to family therapy. Suicidal Edward,Bella’s fear of committment, Alice addicted to shopping, Rosalie’s hostility, Emmett and Japer’s gambling..who will survive? FUNNY

    • I have Family Therapy-Cullen Style on my TBR already, and the description sounds hilarious. Your second rec seems to be the perfect little six-chapter distraction between mobfics! And I’m with Rita, I’ve certainly been given an education via fic too. I had to Google running while reading a particular story. There have been other Google adventures too, lol.

  5. rita01tx

    Family Therapy Cullen Style was hilarious, Zveka darlin’! And I remember Liv’s entry for the Let’s Do Anal Anon Contest well LMAO! It was the first entry and was supposed to encourage others to enter! Of course, it also set the bar quite high *gigglesnort!* OH! And I learned a thing or two I’d never heard of by readin’ her story and other entries! Peggin’? Figgin’? I tell ya, this fandom is a real education ROTFLMAO!

  6. I absolutely love Love LOVE The Storm Series. It is the best Mobward out there in my opinion. I’m wondering if you’re just now reading tQS, what mob fics were you reading in your mobward streak? I would love mobward recs. I feel like I’ve read all the mobward fics out there and I’m always looking for more.
    Great post as always. Enjoy Be-bella and Jun-yah. Sigh. I might have to reread AGAIN.

    • rita01tx

      Welcome, Christy darlin’! The Storm Series has quite a large fan base from all the comments I’ve seen both here and in a few Facebook groups and, so far, I have to agree LOL!
      Like so many, Emancipation Proclamation was my first Mobward and Mobwards have popped up quite often ever since! I’m sure I haven’t read the majority of them but the ones I have read have been wonderful reads, such as:
      Grand Trilogy by CaraNo
      This Life by CaraNo
      Bound to the Family + Bound and Dangerous {with Bound and United startin’ soon} by Heartfortwilight
      I rec’d two TWIN Mobwards last week but they’re still WIPs:
      Rose Colored Glass by FallingInLoveInDecember
      Danger in New York by CristinaN
      Now, CristinaN has a Mobward or two on her profile but my absolute favorite {currently} is Dark Velvet, which is a pulled fic. Strange that the sequel, Dark Lies, IS on her profile…haven’t gotten to it yet *poutyface!*
      And these are just off the top of my head LMAO!
