An Offer From a Gentleman (Bridgertons #3), Julia Quinn

1 star2 star3 star4 star
When Bridgerton 'Number 2', Benedict, meets the girl of his dreams at his mother's masquerade ball, he knows he must marry her. But when the clock strikes midnight, she dissapears, leaving nothing--not even a name--but a monogramed glove as a clue to her identity.

Two years later, he still dreams of the woman in silver he met and fell in love with in an instant that night. But when he resuces maid, Sophie Beckett, from a terrible fate at her employer's hands, he starts to feel something stir inside him he was sure he'd never feel for anyone but
her.

A clear adaptation of Cindarella, An Offer From a Gentleman is the third installment in Julia Quinn's fabulous Bridgerton Series.

I'm a sucker for these books. The wit and charm, and the delightful Bridgerton family make the books irresistable, and they're light and fun to read, but in Quinn's hands, somehow manage to be a lot more than total fluff. The more of these books I read, the more completely immersed I become in Quinn's early 1800's London, the more in love I fall with the Bridgertons, and the more I have to read.

Sophie and Benedict are, as are all Quinn's characters, a delight to read. Sophie, on the surface meek and servile, is a strong girl with a real sense of self; in contrast, Benedict, the picture of confidence and charisma, really suffers with his identity as Benedict, as opposed to 'Brigerton Number 2'. I love the teasing between Quinn's romantic leads. The humour and light hearted, friendly needling is what makes these books so much fun to read.

As all books in this series, the book works as a standalone, but it's very enjoyable reading in order, and revisiting much loved characters from previous books.
