An Offer From A Gentleman

An Offer From A Gentleman
( 3rd in series)
by Julia Quinn

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 the extraordinary woman? Ever since that magical night, a radiant vision in silver has blinder 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, nut this breathtaking maid makes him weak with wanting her. Yet, if he offers her his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only change for a fairy take love?

First Line: Everyone knew that Sophie Beckett was a bastard.

Favorite Line(s): " You are the reason I exist," she said softly, " the very reason I was born."

My Review: Oh man I am going to be paying for this come morning, or wait it is morning. I just spent the whole evening and well into the morning reading this book. Do you really need to know what I thought of this book... ha ha ha! Julia Quinn is a mastermind! Cindrella meets the cold hard reality of life... perfection! This is not your Disney Cindrella story at all, this one is the Cindrella story for the older crowd. I am torn between wanting a Highlander for a fictional boyfriend or one of the steamy, hunky Bridgerton boys. Grr baby grr!
