“Waiting On” Wednesday: The Sum of All Kisses

New WoW

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated upcoming releases.


The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn

Release date: October 29, 2013


Blurb from her website:


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.

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…


Julia Quinn’s next installment to her Smythe-Smiths quartet of novels focuses on Sarah and Hugh, two characters that were already introduced in the previous two novels in the series and who seemed like very interesting characters.


Julia Quinn’s new series is far from being Bridgerton series material but I really enjoyed the first book, Just Like Heaven. However, nothing special happened in the second one, A Night Like This. So I’m crossing my fingers with this third book especially because the back story of these two is ripe with plot points and conflict so I’m looking forward to where Julia Quinn takes their story.


Julia Quinn offers an excerpt of her soon-to-be-released book in her website. As a side note, how pretty is the cover of this book? I particularly love the color of the dress.


How about you? What are you waiting on this Wednesday?

  1. i don’t really pick up many of julia quinn’s books becuase i prefer my historical romances steamier/darker (in the vein of jennifer ashley or elizabeth hoyt) and she writes more lighthearted, sweet romances. but really like the cover of sum of all kisses. love the colors they used.

    hope you can stop by my WoW.
