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.
Who was that extraordinary woman? 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?
Absolutely flawless! It is one of my favorites of the series, and also got a place of my all-time favorites shelf!
An Offer From a Gentleman is a Cinderella story with charming characters, perfect plot and character delineation, twists and turns, adorable and moving romantic scenes, sweet and funny moments.
Although it is based on a fairy tale, the emotions and relationships are presented in a realistic way.
I love Benedict, he is my favorite Bridgerton! He is persevering, sincere, and very romantic. I love his humor, his struggling between two women who actually are the same.
I also sympathize with Sophie, her hard life and situation. She is strong and sweet, and true to her principles. I didn’t agree with her last decision, when she left the Bridgerton house, but the final scene makes up for it – it is amazing beyond expectations. Araminta’s evil character is well-done. I admire Lady Bridgerton, and hope to see Posy again. Brilliant ending!
An Offer From a Gentleman is a perfect romance!
