Description

The third novel in the beloved Regency-set world of Julia Quinn's charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix. Welcome to Benedict's story . . .
________________________________________

Will she accept his offer before the clock strikes midnight?

One magical night, at Lady Bridgeton's famed masquerade ball, a radiant vision in silver blinded Benedict to the attractions of any other woman . . .

Sophie Beckett never dreamt she would 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 had been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But that night, spinning in the strong arms of the debonair and devastatingly handsome Benedict Bridgerton, she felt like royalty. Yet she knows all enchantments must end.

But Sophie has reckoned without Benedict's determined heart: he has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, for he knows this is his only chance for a fairy tale love . . .

Review quote

Miss Sophie Beckett is the illegitimate daughter of the Earl of Penwood in Julia Quinn's An Offer from a Gentleman. Raised in his home, Sophie has a tolerable existence until the Earl marries and her life takes a distinct turn for the worse. Sophie's new stepmother hates her, and when the Earl passes away, she relegates Sophie to the role of servant. Sophie's days are pure drudgery until one night when her fellow servants conspire to help her attend a masquerade ball. * Her life changes irrevocably when she meets handsome Benedict Bridgerton and falls head-over-heels in love. Benedict is equally smitten but when the clock strikes 12, his beautiful mystery lady runs from him leaving only her glove in his hand. He searches * 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. Quinn has a reputation for witty dialogue and endearing charact * Faye Dyer, Amazon.com *

Our customer reviews

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 survived.show 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 manners.show more
