The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn

The Sum of All Kisses (Smythe-Smith Quartet, #3)Historical Romance
Here is what Goodreads says:
"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.
I love the Smythe-Smith series and The Sum of All Kisses is the best so far.  We met Sarah in one of  the first books when she refused to  show up for the annual Smythe-Smith musical and Hugh there was talk about the duel between he and Daniel.  Now they have their own story.
Both are really great characters and they are very well developed.  Sarah is very vocal and Hugh is very withdrawn but when they get together sparks fly.  Both think that the other is a terrible person but once they are forced together the type of sparks change.  Theirs is a great journey to a HEA.
Pick this one up for a great afternoon of reading.
Avon published The Sum of all Kisses by Julia Quinn in 2013.
