Truce: The Historic Neighbor From Hell (Neighbor From Hell #4) by R.L. Mathewson

This book is definitely a must read. I love all the Neighbor From Hell Series but I think this one is my favorite. The character are still funny like all the other books in the series. This book took place way back in the day in the 1800s. It's about how the Bradfords become the Bradfords. I loved this book.

It starts out with Jason making his wife a gift for their 5th wedding anniversary and Jason's dad deciding to tell the story of how they became who they are today. He tells the story of how their great great great great, etc. grandfather Robert met his wife Elizabeth and married her after a couple of weeks and moved to America.

Robert and Elizabeth were neighbors and enemies growing up. Robert hated her and Elizabeth couldn't stand him. They always were playing pranks on each other and driving each other insane. Elizabeth's parents drag her to a ball  one night so she can find her a husband. Elizabeth has no use for a husband. She want to stay single and have control over her own life. To escape the ball, Elizabeth goes to the orangery. While there, she meets a guy. They talk and hang out but don't know who the other person is. The end up having sex and going back to the ball that where they are introduced to each other and the Bradford possessiveness that I loved comes out to play.

Robert is the guy from the orangery. Their banter and playfulness starts right back up where it had left off. Elizabeth's parents want her to marry Robert's brother James but Robert isn't allowing that. Robert is crazy about Elizabeth and accidentally gets pregnant. Robert marries her against her will. After the wedding, they think she miscarriages and their families try to make them get an annulment. 

Robert and Elizabeth decide to stay together and move to America. They realize they both love each other in their own way.

They're isn't that many sex moments but it still has the funny parts. I love this series. I never laughed so hard or swoon so much in one book before. I love the Bradford's craziness with the food and women.
