Description

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.

A WELL MATCHED PAIR

I enjoyed this book very much. Was it the most compelling? No! But, the characters were very matched and I like them both equally. He was a gallant genius and she was a protective sister and friend.

Not my favorite

I didn't care for this at all. The leading male was whiny and emasculated... I kept hoping for a worthwhile solution to his situation, but it never really came. I also didn't feel the relationship was very convincing.

Great 3rd book in series.

Slow to get going, but then I started to get into the story. Loved when Sarah confronts Hughes' father. I really enjoy listening to Rosalind Landor, her different voices are excellent. I always know who is speaking.

I've been waiting!

I've been waiting for Hugh's story since I met him in the first of the first of the Smyth-Smith Quartet. I fell in love with his stoicism and genius, his darkness that calls for the light that will reveal to him his own worth. Lady Sarah is plain-spoken and forward. Her main goal is to marry in order to avoid yet another horrendous performance in the annual Smyth-Smith musicale. These two should not be attracted, yet... Oh, this was definitely worth the wait and goes on my re listen list.

annoying female

The main female character is really annoying... just kind if useless, clueless, self absorbed... maybe a stronger character would have made this better.

Unglaubwürdig und entäuschend

Schrecklich unsinnig!!! Langatmig!!! Unglaubwürdig!!! Das einzige Gute war die Sprecherin. Rosalyn Landor wie immer brilliant, allerdings konnte auch sie nichts retten bei dieser Geschichte.
