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…..
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.

He noticed the dance card on her wrist. It was full, which didn't surprise him. "And the book?" She held it up and shrugged. "It's one of my favorite plays. It helps me relax. I had a feeling that I would need it tonight by the way that my mother and sister were behaving." He couldn't quite make ou...
Another excellent addition to the Neighbor From Hell series. I enjoy historical romances so this book was a fun twist on a contemporary series.
I love R. L. Mathewson’s books especially her Neighbor from Hell series and I love that she stepped outside of her comfort zone for this book. I thought it was a cool way to put a fun twist on a series to keep it fresh by going historical to see where her Bradford men got their unique traits. I love...
