The Pear Tree
The Twelve Days of Christmas #1
by Lark Westerly
Genre: Fantasy Menage Romance
Print Length: 92 pages
Publisher: eXtasy Books
Publication Date: December 6, 2019
A partridge, a pear tree…and a fairy in the bed.
Nelis Winter and Xavier Partridge knew one another years ago. Now Frances le Fay has invited them both to a dinner party on Christmas Eve. Stopping at The Pear Tree pub on the way seems a good idea…until Nelis walks in on an orgy of naked elves.
Lark Westerly lives in the island state of Tasmania, a place of wind and rivers, wild places and hidden delights. She enjoys walking over the hills, gardening, collecting china dogs, listening to music and wallowing decadently in a hot bath. Lark has been married for some years, and has two grown children. She writes under a variety of names, and lives in many worlds- most of which don’t bear much resemblance to the 21st Century.

Nelis Winter’s Leavers’ Party had been held on a Friday night in December. The night was stuck in Nelis’ mind forever, like a nail in the coffin of her school years. Daisy Comice, trying to make up for years of frugal indignity heaped on Nelis during their life with Snowland Winter, booked her daughter into Affinity to have her hair and makeup done, and took her to Beautiful Signets to buy a dress and shoes among the Christmas shoppers.

The party should have been in November, but the venue, Theme of Your Dreams, had had a conflict with bookings. The earliest block available was in December, and it had offered a big incentive to Diversity High to shift its dates. Since the school’s motto was something along the lines of We Welcome Alternatives, it couldn’t refuse.

“What, no home-sewn mu-mu made of home-dyed homespun?” the imp in Nelis’ brain demanded as Daisy took down racks of shimmering dresses. “No lecture on the ills of mineral makeup and the beauty of natural skin? No implication that Leavers’ Parties for seventeen-year-olds are inappropriately sexualising occasions?”

Nelis said none of this aloud. She hadn’t been glad when her dad took off to the Arctic Circle to commune with polar bears and hunt the yeti, but she hadn’t been too sorry, either. She’d half-hoped Daisy might go, too, and so leave Nelis to board with a friend for her last year at Diversity, but Daisy, most unexpectedly, had rebelled against the idea of living in an igloo, as she’d put it.

“Come home when you’ve got it out of your system,” she’d told Snow.

 By the day of the Leavers’ Party, Snow had been gone for a year.

Daisy and Nelis had settled into a comfortable rut with a whole lot less tofu and vegan clothing than during Snow’s tenure. They watched cooking shows on their new TV, and Daisy got rather too well acquainted with the shopping channel.

“You look gorgeous, Nel.” Daisy lined her up between the long green recycled tie-dyed curtain and their first-ever microwave oven and photographed her from every angle.

They had a flat now. The eco-cabin had been let to two starry-eyed newlyweds who wanted to spend a year trialling self-sufficiency before they made the lifestyle irrevocable.

Nelis wondered how long they’d last, but she didn’t say so.

She eyed her reflection. A stranger looked back. Her dress was floor-length and pink, with a sequined bodice. Her dark hair was piled with a few loose curls, and her face was made up with soft pink lipstick and faintly pink shadow.

She looked feminine. She looked grown-up.

A flutter of excitement began in her chest.

Some of the parents had clubbed together to hire a minibus to carry a dozen or so leavers to the dinner and to return them afterwards. Daisy accepted an invitation for Nelis to travel in that. “Be nice for you to go with your friends.”

Nelis gave her mother a quick smile. She didn’t tell Daisy the people in question weren’t her friends. Neither were they her enemies. They were simply the dateless, the unpopular and the odd ones out.

Nelis figured she’d fit right in.

So would Xavier Partridge.

The flutter intensified.

Xavier Partridge, whom no one but teachers ever called anything but Bird Boy, was an exchange student who’d arrived at the beginning of year eleven. In his two years at Diversity High, Xavier had remained an outsider even in that eclectic company. He was geeky, gawky, cheerful and odd. He didn’t fit in any category. He wasn’t a member of any clique, team or group. He talked to anyone, anywhere, about anything. He was heart-stoppingly handsome and treated everyone with the same alert, friendly courtesy.

Nelis wished she had half his disregard for peer opinion.

After Snow defected to the Arctic Circle and her life became more mainstream, she wondered if she might invite Xavier out for pizza or to play chess. She wanted to sate her curiosity. She wanted to see what he’d do.

She never had. Now it was probably too late. School was all over but for the final barbecue, which would be held in the school grounds on New Year’s Eve. After that, she presumed Xavier would return to his place of origin, wherever that was, and she’d never see him again.

The minibus was going to leave from the end of Glebe Point Road. Daisy drove Nelis there and decanted her daughter from her eco-warrior car. “Got your phone?”

“Yes, Mum.” It was brand new. She was still learning how to use it. She was half-ashamed of having one because she’d pretended indifference during the Snow years.

“Okay. Give me a call if you need picking up.”

“I’ll be right.”

“If you decide to make a night of it at a café or a girlfriend’s place, just give me a call.”

“Yes, Mum.”

Not a chance, unless…

Daisy took a deep breath. “Okay. Have fun.”

“I will.”

Nelis watched her mother drive away. Then she walked over to the minibus, which was decorated with tinsel and fake holly.

She’d been right. The odd, the undatable and unpopular were all present. So were Alyssa Curry and Ryan Besnik, who were none of these things.

Ryan had his driver’s licence and a car, so what was he doing on the Misfits’ Bus?

The question went out of her mind, for Xavier Partridge was perched in a rear seat and looking about with pleased expectation.

He’s like a bloody tourist watching animals in their natural habitat.

She wanted to sit with him. Instead, she sat down three seats in front of him, next to Alyssa Curry. That was foolish, but the bus was almost full.

“Piss off, Pear Tree, Ryan’s sitting here.”

What happened to the plan for him to drive you?

Nelis got up. Miffy’s cousin Melanie Smith settled behind Alyssa. The only other spare seat was next to Xavier Partridge.

She was beautiful.

He was my best friend.

I loved her, but he took her away from me, so I left and never looked back.

I thought I understood brotherhood, but then I joined the Black Sentinels and they showed me what real loyalty was. Not like Dean, my childhood best friend. He and I made a pact about Malia, the beautiful girl who moved in next door, but they betrayed me and cut out my heart, and I vowed I would never forgive either of them.

Now she’s here, the girl I loved—the one whose call to my heart was stronger than the call of the ocean, and she needs me and my club to help keep her safe from him.

The thing is, betrayal cuts deep and I’m not sure I can be there for her when I fear falling in love with her all over again. 

But that’s a lie. I never stopped loving her. She ruined all other women for me.

Malia Kyler took my heart over a decade ago and never gave it back.

Can I let her in for a second time? Or do I risk it all, and take what should’ve been mine all those years ago?

Hey Neighbor ;)

Title: Hey Neighbour
Author: Hailey Queen
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Romantic Comedy
Release Date: November 22, 2019


Jessica Goodwin. My next-door neighbour. The woman who unearthed the pleasant memories of my first and only crush.
She is single. Seductive. Occasionally sassy.
And my sworn enemy.
Although things could have been different between us if …
… I hadn’t killed her cat on the very first day, she moved next door.
It was an accident.
Definitely an accident.
But due to my lack of emotions, it appeared otherwise.
Still, bad blood could have been averted. The unfortunate situation could be handled as adults.
But she made the ultimate mistake of calling me an animal and struck a nerve.
Now, I’m in a war against her. Which, according to my niece, Frankie, is a petty rivalry from my side only, and I should stop making a fool of myself.
If only I would be able to do just that.
I’m a typical sociopath who just has to put people down for his own fulfillment.
A ruthless, vengeful, most anti-social, outlaw, son of a bitch who has nothing but time on his hand and skills to make her life a living hell.
But to my surprise, there were some feelings left, or it’s she who has awoken them along with my cock.
Why else would I steal glances of her?
True, she is sexy as hell. Crafted by God himself on a Sunday with a mold that has since been broken.
But that can’t be the reason enough for me to pull down my sunglasses down the bridge of my nose, stare at her un-blinked, and while enjoying the view, whisper to myself ‘Hey Neighbour.’
Or could it?

‘Hey Neighbour’ is an enemies-to-friends-to-lovers romantic comedy featuring a quirky alpha living a recluse life and the girl next door who would make him want to live differently. It’s a full-length standalone romance with no cheating or cliffhanger and ends with a guaranteed HEA.

“Nobody has come this close to beat me, Jessica. You should be proud of yourself.”
Sitting in my bra and panties across Odin, it doesn’t make me feel this way. I was proud at the start, though, when after binge-watching poker videos for five hours, I learned enough to win four hands straight, leaving him down to his underwear.
I was surprised at myself, thought of it as a beginner’s luck, but the tide changed, and begun Odin’s streak of wins, which led me to believe that it was all a ruse.
A con I was roped in.
A bait I took.
“Full house.” I put my cards down at the table—my best hand for the evening—sure that despite playing against an experienced player, I’ll win and save myself from the humiliation.
Odin glance at his cards and crinkles form on his forehead.
A smile floats on my face; he doesn’t have the cards to beat me. At last, the mighty has fallen.
He sighs. “Well played, Jessica.”
“Yes!” I shout, raising my hands in victory as if the Cubs have won the Super Bowl.
“Straight flush!” he says, spreading his cards on the table.
My hands fall down like a lifeless bird from the sky, and my mouth opens wide with shock.
I lost. No matter which article of clothing I lose, I’ll still be leaving my dignity behind even if I win the next hand.
“Oh, Jessica. You are so gullible. It’s only you and me here. No matter if I get naked or you, it would still be my win.”
“So, would you consider accepting the defeat and strip naked?”
“Yeah, sure.” He scoffs. “Does a hunter let go of his prey if it says pretty please?”—He rubs his hand together—“Go on, then.”
I will have to remove one article of clothing, and I choose my panties.
My thinking is straight. I’ll quickly slide down my panties and close my legs, shutting the view, thereby giving myself a fighting chance to keep my bra on.
As I put my hand on the string of my panties, Odin waves his finger in a no. “Nuh-uh! Bra.”
“What? Why?!”
“Winner’s choice. We agreed on it before we began playing.”
“But you haven’t exercised this right the whole night. Why suddenly now?”
He rubs his palm across his chest like a sleazeball. “Because I desperately want to see your boobs bare. I am fascinated by them—especially the mole on your heart.”
“Was ogling them under the constellations not enough for you?”
“Aha! So, you did see me glaring at them that night?”
“It was hard not to when you were acting like a pervert.”
“Now, I don’t have to.” He takes his face in his hands and props his elbows on the table as if he is waiting for the trailer launch of the next Avenger movie.
“Is this really what you want?” Crossing my fingers, I try my luck one more time.
A perverted smile forms on his face. “Oh, absolutely. I may keep your leopard bra as a souvenir too. You look good in leopard, by the way…” He roars like a tiger. “…very fierce. But I am sure you’ll look much better without it.”
“Pervert!” I mumble, reaching my hand behind my back, and close my eyes. I can’t look at him, seeing me like a piece of meat. Uncomfortably, I unhook my bra, remove my arms through the straps, and drop it down to my lap. “Are you happy now? Take a good look at them.” Because you are never going to see them again. “You tricked me into doing this. I’ll never forget this, Odin.”
No lewd remarks. Not a word in admiration. Has his heart stopped? They are a set of boobs—not a Pandora box.
I open my eyes, hoping, he must be in a heavenly state, drooling all over the table, but I find him missing. The chair across me is empty.
He has expressly stated his infatuation with my boobs by his stares, and today, by his words. Must be plotting for long to see them bare. And now, that his desire has come true, he is nowhere to be found.
A white towel descends from above, against the front of my body. I turn my head slightly and see Odin standing behind me, wrapping me up.
But why?
I don’t understand this person.
He gently grazes my face with his fingers as if he is appreciative of me being here. Then, he leans down and kisses me on the top of my head. “Not like this.”

Author Bio

Unlike what the name suggests, Hailey Queen is not a Royalty, although it would be fun if she were one. She is just a headstrong girl from Minneapolis, Minnesota, now residing in North Carolina.
A die-hard romantic at heart, she writes what she likes to read—laugh out loud, tears running down your face, swoon-worthy, slow-burn sexual tension romance. She loves to write and binge watch on Netflix while having dark chocolate.
When she is not doing these things, she packs her camping bag and off she goes for hiking, or when feeling a little cocky, to Louis Vuitton to set herself straight.
I think I have said enough. To know more about her, you have to follow her.

“You had a plan when you walked into my office five minutes ago. What was it?” He gripped the edge of the armrest with both hands, crossing his legs at his ankles. The tiny flame in my chest grew bigger and spread down to my core.
“I had no plan.” I admitted because the extent of my thoughts when he texted was to come in here and have sex. All I could think of was touching him and feeling his weight on me again. But now I was a little pissed. He could’ve been more explicit. Like, hey, I’m just here to work, bring me the report. No sex. Get your mind out of the gutter. He could also wipe that knowing smile off his face. “What makes you think I had a plan?” I crossed my arms over my chest to cover my hardened nipples.
He rubbed the side of his face. “The thigh-high stockings. You know how they drive me wild. Even if I can’t see them, I know that’s the only kind you own.”
If that was true, why was he still five feet away from me? Why had he not ripped my clothes off already and had his way with me on the couch?
“I have a meeting to go to.” I bolted to the door. Before I could open it, his large hand pressed against it, effectively blocking me from leaving.
“I don’t think so.” His voice was deep and so full of meaning. He walked me back to the living area until my butt hit the back of the sofa. “You had a plan. Show me.” He gripped my waist and shifted so he was the one caged in.
I could go, or I could stay and get what I came here for. I slipped my hands inside his suit jacket and pushed it off his shoulders. His dark gaze stayed on me as I removed his dress shirt. A low moan like a hiss escaped his lips when I ran my hands down his muscled chest. His pecs were harder than I remembered. It seemed Derek’s hard body was directly proportional to the amount of stress he had at work. The more they pinned on him, the more time he spent in his boxing ring. These past three weeks must have been hell for him.
 “Now you.” His voice sounded strained.
Self-control was Derek’s superpower. I gave up all pretenses and removed my blazer and silky top quickly. My skin felt hot from needing him so much. His lips parted when I finally let my skirt pool at my feet.
He cradled my face and kissed me hard. “Fuck. Valentina. You came to work wearing that underneath?” His mouth was warm, and he tasted of cinnamon gum. I melted into him, fumbling with his belt.
“The door.” I panted in between kisses.
“I locked it.” He gripped my ass and wrapped my legs around his waist as he strode around the sofa and sat with me straddling him. “Valentina. How do you do it? How do you make me forget about everything?” He freed me from my bra and sucked on my aching nipples, switching back and forth until I couldn’t wait anymore.
“I need you now,” I whispered in his ear.
I didn’t care that my voice was laced with desperate desire. He cupped my butt cheeks and lifted me enough to give him room to lie flat on the cushions with his head on the decorative pillow. My thighs rubbed his sides as I rested on top of him, topless and without a clue what to do next.
My confusion must have registered on my face because he placed both hands behind his head and grinned at me. His biceps bulged on either side of him.
“Your show.”
He bucked under me to get comfortable, as if he were getting ready to watch a movie or something. The grin that twitched his lip was both infuriating and such a turn-on.
“You want me inside you. Do it.”
