There are many authors that feature Edward not as a teenager vampire, but as a more mature man, very rich (usually CEO or CFO) and -- as the original character -- with a dark past and a complex and troubled personality.

The location usually changes and instead of the provincial town of Forks, the story takes place in Seattle

The first of this fic does not need any review, because it's probably the most reviewed fic not only of the Twilight fandom, but of the whole fanfiction world. The others instead are more recent and completely different.

Summary: "Bella Swan is drafted in to interview the reclusive enigmatic Edward Cullen, multi-millionaire CEO of his company. It's an encounter that will change her life irrevocably. M AH"

Don't miss it because...
Bella and Edward, with all their issues, are very deep and with a rich psychological insight. 
This is not just a dominant/ submissive story, but it's a love story (and a very good one, indeed), with a dom/sub part.
Don't stop to the first impression: I read the first chapters of MoTU last summer, but I was shocked by them (and, sorry to say this, not in a pleasant way...). I could not understand why so many readers were fond of this story.
Then last november I decided to give it a second chance (err...jumping the dominant/ submissive scenes in some chapters) and I really liked it, it's been really moving!

Summary: "A determined curator vies with a private collector when rumors of a rare book surface in central Europe. All human, canon couples...eventually".

Don't miss it because...
the author shows a deep sensitivity, for many reasons: she describes Edward's story in a very delicate way, step by step; she shows, with the changes of her characters, that true love make them better persons; she described with great accuracy Prague and Dresden, recalling also tragic events of the II World War. I spent a month in Dresden in 1998 and this story made me remind the story of that beautiful city.
The author usually sends a teaser of the following chapter to every reviewer; some weeks ago she was not able to update during the weekend and so she gave to us all two chapters instead of one! What more can you ask for?

Summary: "Edward Masen's life intersects with Bella's at the restaurant he dines at for lunch every Friday. He's handsome, arrogant, and is used to avoiding love. She isn't impressed by the things that usually have women falling at his feet. AH/AU".

Don't miss it because...
many things happen in each chapter: every update can be at the same time so funny and so meaningful (for example, I was impressed by the discussion about the nature of love -- you'll find it in one of the first chapters). Bella and Edward come from very different worlds and try to introduce each other to their way of life.
It's also fast paced, the author updates every Friday (at least!).

If you read any of these fanfics, please don't forget to tell that "Raum sent you" and say "Ciao!" to the authors from me! Thanks ;-)
