An Offer From a Gentleman
An Offer From a Gentleman | Julia Quinn
22 posts | 70 read | 12 to read
Sophie Beckett never dreamed she'd be able to sneak into Lady Bridgerton's famed masquerade ballor 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 otherexcept, 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?

I have a cold and a cough, so I'm already in bed at 10 pm and indulging in some Bridgerton romance.

Another book done for #24b4 Monday! This is not my favorite of the Bridgerton series, and definitely has a few questionable moments by our male protagonist. However I still love this family saga so I still give it a pick.

Andrew65 Fantastic time, doing brilliantly. 👏👏👏 6mo
ShyBookOwl What is #24b4? I see it floating around but I have no idea what it's about 6mo

TheReadingMermaid @ShyBookOwl hey there sweetie 👋😊 #24B4Monday is a read-a-thon that I started that takes place every last weekend of the month. It starts on Thursday at midnight and goes on until Sunday at midnight. The overall goal is to hit 24 hours within that time frame but the main goal is just to read and have fun with your fellow littens ❤️ it's a great way to clear off your TBR stack for the month. 😃 6mo
ShyBookOwl @TheReadingMermaid Oh how cool! Thanks for clarifying. Maybe I'll take part next month 😊 6mo
TheReadingMermaid @ShyBookOwl that would be wonderful sweetheart. We would be glad to have you join us 🤗 6mo

In the middle of my next Bridgerton , this one is a fun take on Cinderella, complete with wicked step mother and meanish stepsisters and of course a very handsome “Prince “ Charming. #dinnerandabook

Sophie is hoping for a wonderful night to pretend she is not a slave to her stepmother. Benedict meets the woman of his dreams only to lose her. When they meet again, Benedict is drawn to Sophie but cannot give up his mystery woman. They both have a lot to get over to make this HEA happen. Will meddling family help or hinder things?

This book is a bit of a Cinderella story, and a lovely, sweet, tender one at that. Not quite as funny as the first two Bridgerton books, it nevertheless has it's amazing moments (like the showdown near the end of the book).

Just what I needed to get me through a work trip last week!

robinb Is this your first read-through of the Bridgertons? I envy you...such a wonderful series! 2y
Heretherebedragons This one was one of my favorites from the Bridgerton series. 2y

ElenaBaer If you haven‘t read the Bridgertons read the second one, The Viscount Who Loved Me (Anthony‘s story) and Hyacinths story, It‘s in His Kiss. Both are my favs from the series. 2y
Mc_cart_ny Love those Bridgerton's! 2y
ScientistSam @robinb yes, I'm going through them in order and enjoying myself very much! I can't believe I hadn't read them before now... 2y
ScientistSam @Heretherebedragons it was so sweet! 2y
ScientistSam @Zelma I agree completely! 2y
ScientistSam @ElenaBaer thanks for the recommendation! I'm reading them in chronological order and loved Anthony's. Now I'll look forward to Hyacinth's all the more! 2y
ScientistSam @Mc_cart_ny 👍👍👍 2y
robinb @ScientistSam It‘s the kind of well-written, fun series that you‘ll want to return to over and over again. My favorite part of the books are actually the sibling relationships...then the romantic ones. 😆🤷🏻‍♀️ 2y

4 🌟I feel I enjoyed this book just as much this time, as I did the first time I read it. Loved the second Epilogue - and that Posie gets her story. As always Rosalyn Landor did a fantastic job narrating.

My Pilates class cancelled after I trekked out in the cold to get there--Score! I get to sit in a French cafe, eat a croissant (my intentions were virtuous, but the spirit is weak), and reread my fav Bridgerton, @JuliaQuinn 's Cinderella! #romantsy #bridgertons #juliaquinn

Christy2318 Colin & Hyacinth are my favorite Bridgertons. 3y

frankincense_and_sensibility An Offer from a Gentleman is the next Bridgerton book I have to read and now that my semester's done I can finally dive in! 3y
aizekj That's my favorite Bridgerton book. I'm a suckered for a great Cinderella story! 3y
EloisaJames @frankincense_and_sensibility have fun!! (There is nothing happier than a professor on sabbatical and not facing 100s if papers to grade!) 3y
raelaschoenherr Now that's a great workout :) 3y
Tmsorenson My first foray into romance was your Fairy Tales series. When I finished I was desperate for more, and my local B&N had a yellowed copy of An Offer from a Gentleman. I adored it and quickly followed with the entire Bridgeton series. Needless to say, I quickly fell in love with the genre and two years later am still devouring books 😍 3y
EloisaJames @Tmsorenson I love the fact that I was your gateway drug!! Blowing you a kiss ~ E 3y

This book is a loose Cinderella-retelling, where an aristocrat's bastard has been forced to live as her stepmother's maid. She falls for Benedict when she meets him at a masquerade, and he for her. First half was a little slow, ending was entertaining and sweet without being saccharine. Love JQ!
