Waiting on Wednesday (17): TRUCE

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I love R.L. Mathewson's writing. Her 'A Neighbor From Hell' series is particularly funny and endearing with those crazy Bradfords, combining humor and sexiness. She has a new HFH novel coming out, but this time it will also be a historical novel, introducing the early Bradfords. I'm excited to see the twist this will bring!

TRUCE by R.L. Mathewson
(The Historical Neighbor From Hell)
Expected publication date: November 1, 2013

Truce (Historical Neighbor From Hell, #1)
Book Blurb:
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.

Author’s Note:

This is first and foremost a historical novel. If you don’t enjoy historical novels, you may not enjoy this 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.

The Neighbor from Hell novels that follow will be written in the same style as the originals.
The Original 'A Neighbor From Hell' Series:
(the first two are only 99 cents)
Playing for Keeps (A Neighbor from Hell, #1)  Perfection (A Neighbor from Hell, #2)  Checkmate (A Neighbor from Hell, #3)
