Book description: Elizabeth knows what’s expected of her, perfection. She’s the daughter of an Earl and expected to marry well, say and do the right things with a smile on her face when inside she’s dying for a chance to escape. Thanks to an inheritance her godmother left her years ago, her chance will come with her next birthday. Her hopes of escape abruptly end when Robert, her childhood nemesis that she hasn’t seen in over fourteen years, comes back into her life and does everything he can to drive her out of her mind even as he steals her heart.
He hated her.
At least, he tried to hate her, but it was so damn difficult to hate someone that he couldn’t live without. He tried to ignore her, tried to focus on anything but her, but nothing worked. Somehow she made her way into his heart and started to make him want things that he never thought possible, made him smile and laugh even while she drove him out of his mind and started a legacy by turning him into…..
Author's Note: This is first and foremost a historical novel. This novel is written differently than the other Neighbor from Hell books. Truce is about a man who takes everything too damn seriously and can’t let go of the past until the woman that he would love to hate comes back into his life and brings out the Bradford within.
My Thoughts: I absolutely love R.L. Mathewson’s Neighbor from Hell series. The Bradford men are flawed but real and most importantly loyal and loveable. So when I had the chance to read Truce, the beginning of the Bradford’s I jumped at the chance to read how it all began. Even though this is a historical novel R. L. still manages to draw her loyal readers of the series in to the story and makes you laugh right along with the characters and most importantly fall in love with another Bradford man. If you take anything away from my fan girl ramblings is stop what you are doing right now and buy this series. Go now. I will wait. Trust me you wont regret it!
