Sophie Beckett never dreamed she'd be able to sneak into Lady Bridgerton's famed masquerade ball -- or that "Prince Charming" would be waiting there for her! Though the daughter of an earl, Sophie has been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But now, spinning in the strong arms of the debonair and devastatingly handsome Benedict Bridgerton, she feels like royalty. Alas, she knows all enchantments must end when the clock strikes midnight. Ever since that magical night, a radiant vision in silver has blinded Benedict to the attractions of any other - except, perhaps, this alluring and oddly familiar beauty dressed in housemaid's garb whom he feels compelled to rescue from a most disagreeable situation. He has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, but this breathtaking maid makes him weak with wanting her. Yet, if he offers her his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?

Quinn brings a fresh approach to this charming retelling of the Cinderella story enhancing the tale with a strong Regency setting and the warm trappings of Benedict Bridgerton's large family.

I am a fan of Ms. Julia Quinn. Reading her books was like flying backwards to the forgotten eras and living the old life of those people again. Once you start reading her book, you'll definitely buy another new book of hers, more and more. This is another book with another happy ending for the Bridgertons siblings. The only different that this novel made, was the true love between a mere Mister of Benedict Bridgertons and the illegitimate daughter of the not-so-famous-Earl of Penwood. Despite of all obstacles and hurdles from their society rank and dictions, their love more

I have read a few of Julia Quinns books and enjoyed them all, they are truly romantic fiction and pure escapism. However this book " Offer From a Gentleman" is by far the best! Having read the blurb I thought "aha! a Cinderella story" and it is, wicked step mother, servitude, ugly sisters etc but it's for grown ups. It has so many twists and turns and unexpected events. A rip roaring read for the summer when you need to escape to another time when there was honour and good more
