Waiting on Wednesday (20)

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that was created by Breaking the Spine to spotlight a blogger's eagerly anticipated new books.

For this Waiting on Wednesday, I picked The Sum of All Kisses by Julia Quinn.

Release Date: October 29, 2013

Book Summary: (From Goodreads) "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 ...

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."

My Thoughts: Previously in the Smythe-Smith series, Hugh was shot and injured in a duel with Daniel Smythe-Smith from "A Night Like This." I'm thinking having an injury is going to make Hugh a serious and brooding character. For some biased reason I'm imagining Colonel Brandon from Sense & Sensibility. As much as I'm looking forward to reading the book, I am a little disappointed in the American cover. While it's not a bad cover, I was hoping that all the Smythe-Smith books would have a "shoe" on them. Both "Just Like Heaven" and "A Night Like This" have shoes on the cover. Why the sudden change?
