The Sum of All Kisses

Smythe-Smith Quartet Book 3Sum of All Kisses

by Julia Quinn

10 . 29 . 2013


From Amazon:

From Julia Quinn, the New York Times bestselling author of steamy historical romances, comes the third seductive installment of the Smythe-Smith Quartet, The Sum of All Kisses.

Sarah Pleinsworth can’t forgive Hugh Prentice for the duel he fought three years ago that nearly destroyed her family, sent her cousin fleeing, and left Hugh himself with a badly injured leg. That’s fine with Hugh, who can’t tolerate Sarah’s dramatic ways. But when the two are forced to spend a week together, they find that unexpected kisses, and mutual passion, may have the power to change both of their minds.

Written with Julia Quinn’s trademark style, The Sum of All Kisses is a witty and lighthearted Regency romance.


One of the first series of books I read in the romance genre was Julia Quinn’s series about the Bridgerton family.  I fell in love with her writing.  Her stories are completely character driven.  Even the supporting characters jump off the page.  I was very excited when Quinn came out with this sister series to the Bridgerton books about the Smythe-Smith family.  Some of the events in this new series occur at the same time and in the same setting as event s from the Bridgerton series.  I feel like you get more insight into all her novels with these new additions.  And as always, her writing makes me laugh out loud, sometimes in public.  Quinn writes fantastic dialogue.  If you enjoy light and fun romance reads, you will adore these two series.
