Truce by RL Mathewson

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…..

A Bradford.

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.

This is the story before everything…

Everything you love about this series, has its origin in this book. Truce tells the story on how everything started with Elizabeth and Robert Bradford in the 1800s.

I did not think I could ever love more a book on regency since this series has on of my favorite tropes at heart: neighbors from hell. If you love Pride and Prejudice, you will imagine Elizabeth and Robert hitting close to home.

“Once upon a time…”
“Are you fucking kidding me?” Jason asked, shaking his head in disgust.
“What?” Jarred demanded, taking a bite from his sandwich roll.
“You’re really going to start it like that?” Jason demanded, sharing a look of disgust with Trevor, who was inching his hand toward the platter of sandwich rolls.
“Those are my sandwich rolls!”
“Dad,” Jason said, not bothering to look up as he prompted his father to get on with it.
“Oh, right,” his father said, pointedly clearing his throat. “Once upon a time…….”

Truce starts with Jason doing a necklace for Haley, and his father telling him to story behind the tradition. Every Bradford has heard the story of their great-great-too many great-grandfather who fell in love with his nemesis and left behind their world as English socialites to sail to America.

I have read my fair share of historical romance novels, but this one was a bit slightly revealing on the lovemaking part, which I absolutely adored.

Without any spoilers, I totally recommend you to read the entire series, since it’s everything you want and RL Mathewson does a damn fine job with it.
