Truce, By R.L. Mathewson

Truce: The Historical Neighbor from Hell
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 though 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.
 R.L. Mathewson has been one of my favorite authors since I first found her books over a year ago.  Unlike with some authors, her books just seem to get better and better with each new release.  This book is no exception to that!

I enjoyed how she was able to take a modern day series and give it a historical twist.  And the best part about that?  She did it in such a way that even if you don’t like historical (Like myself) you can still enjoy this great story.
We get to meet Elizabeth and Robert who are the start of the Bradford line, and find out that the current day Bradford’s haven’t strayed that far from their heritage.  The relationship between Elizabeth and Robert was one that will bring a smile to your face as they bicker back and forth.  And being able to watch as they both start too slowly, and I do mean slowly, realize that they don’t actually hate each other.  Seeing them open up for more was also great
to read about.
There is plenty of drama, suspense, humor and of course the never ending food supply in this book that keeps you turning the pages and wanting to read more and more.
Overall I think that this is my new favorite book from R.L. and I can’t wait to read more from her in the future.
