The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn (Audio Edition)

Narrated by Rosalyn Landor
(Smythe-Smith Quartet #3)
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ This was a good story and as always with Julia Quinn I found myself chuckling out loud every so often. This is the tortured/wounded hero plot (not a total favourite of mine) but Quinn writes it well. Hugh was a good guy and even though the two leads start off disliking one another (which is a favourite plot point for me) they find commonalities and start to enjoy one another's company.   

Sarah is a stubborn, woman who is trying to be less selfish. I enjoy their banter, wit and of course a few of my favourite characters make an appearances - Francis and Lady Danbury.  I wasn't keen on “the contract” and thought it kinda put a damper on the story.. which, I know was the point in the first place.. but still..

The narrator did a wonderfuĺ job. She did a Fantastic Lady Danbury!  I would gladly listen to her again.

The Blurb:

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, a reckless duel has left this brilliant mathematician with a ruined leg, and now 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 that nearly destroyed 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 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 ...

New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn's enchanting third novel in the Smythe-Smith quartet is guaranteed to make you laugh out loud and tug at your heartstrings in equal measures.
