Absolutely not. There has never been any romantic relationship between Edward and either sister. Unlike the rest of the Cullens, Carlisle did not turn Alice or Jasper. When they joined the family, they had already been turned. In fact, no one really knows how Alice came to be a vampire. We know that she has always had the gift of premonition, which is why she was in an asylum in her human life. Initially, Carlisle had hoped that Rosalie would be a partner for Edward. But, there was no romantic chemistry between the two. The relationship became more like that of siblings than lovers. Until Bella, Edward had no interest whatsoever in love or a relationship. He had accepted that he would live out eternity never knowing what it was to love someone.
