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
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
Rosalyn Landor provides a fabulous narration. Her interpretations of dialogue and character inflection are spot-on. She captures the nuances of every line.
Hugh and Sarah are equally engaging.
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.
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.
This work is best enjoyed as part of the Smythe-Smith series since each book shares characters.
