Publisher's Summary

He thinks she's an annoying know-it-all...
Hugh Prentice has never had patience for dramatic females, and if Lady Sarah Pleinsworth has ever been acquainted with the words shy or retiring, she's long since tossed them out the window. Besides, even if Hugh did grow to enjoy her company, it wouldn't matter. A reckless duel has left this brilliant mathematician with a ruined leg, and now, unable to run, ride, or even waltz, he could never court a woman like Sarah, much less dream of marrying her.
She thinks he's just plain mad.
Sarah has never forgiven Hugh for the duel he fought three years earlier, the one that forced her cousin into exile, nearly destroying her family. But even if she could find a way to forgive him, it wouldn't matter. She doesn't care that his leg is less than perfect, it's his personality she can't abide. But when the pair is forced to spend a week in close company, they discover that first impressions are not always reliable. And when one kiss leads to two, three, and four, the mathematician may lose count, and the lady may, for the first time, find herself speechless.

Not as great as her others

Any additional comments?

This series lacks the fun quippy humor that the authors other books have had. It's pretty standard romantic historical fiction. I had a hard time staying interested long enough to finish the series

Smythe-Smiths Continued

What made the experience of listening to The Sum of All Kisses the most enjoyable?

Rosalyn Landor provides a fabulous narration. Her interpretations of dialogue and character inflection are spot-on. She captures the nuances of every line.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hugh and Sarah are equally engaging.

What does Rosalyn Landor bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Having actually read the book prior to the audio version's being available, I truly appreciate the depth that well done narration can bring to all aspects of a work.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Julia Quinn's books are not deep, metaphysical works; however, the dialogue, plot twists, and inter-connectedness make reading each book in the series like a visit with a well-loved friend.

Any additional comments?

This work is best enjoyed as part of the Smythe-Smith series since each book shares characters.

I love the Quartet

What did you like most about The Sum of All Kisses?

To finally getting a story of Hugh of course! And Sarah. Quartet is even better than Bridgertons, at least I like them better

What did you like best about this story?

ehrm, everything

Which scene did you most enjoy?

As always anything where lady D. is.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes and I did!

Any additional comments?

I can not believe there is only one left to come, I hope JQ will reconsider and write more on this family. Love Penelope's sisters, I am sure they could have some fun stories in them

Good listen

Like this narrators voice and style.

A sweet and just outlandish enough tale to entertain with miss Quinn signature humour ( have read funnier tales in the series but funny non the less).
