I am loving this series and this is my favourite so far! Sophie and Benedict are such charming characters and I loved the banter between the two of them.
The story is a retelling of Cinderella, right down to the wicked step mother, the sisters (not ugly although one has an ugly nature!) and having to leave the ball on the stroke of midnight. I enjoyed every minute of it especially when Araminta gets her just desserts.
The Bridgertons are such a wonderful family it is fun whenever they appear. I am

Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! This is a fantastic read! Quinn’s best so far for me. She has an amazing way to draw you into the story from the first few pages and you’re smiling from the get-go right up to the end :) She even manages to take you on a sudden heart-breaking emotional roller coaster ride that really gives you the chills and makes you want to cry for the h/h as a couple. This contrasts so well with the rest of the light-hearted story making the situation all the more poignant.

5+ stars – Historical/Regency Romance

An Offer From a Gentleman might be a Cinderella-like story, but it’s much more than just a fairytale remake. For me, this is the epitome of everything I love about romance and happily ever after.

There’s a charming, yet flawed hero, a sweet heroine with profound inner strength and resolve who overcomes all odds, powerful emotional conflict, realistic drama, lush sensuality, intense passion, and witty humor. Benedict and Sophie and the supporting cast are all

Solid 4 stars. My favorite of the series (from what I've read).

Again, I listened to the excellent narration by Rosalyn Landor. No complaints there.

**** SPOILERS ****

This was definitely a Cinderella story. A nod is even given to the slippers Sophie wore to the ball, but with a twist. There was enough angst here to take the story out of Disney territory and into the realm of an adult fairy tale.

Sophie was the unacknowledged daughter of an Earl. The product of his dalliance with a house maid who di

Još jedna prelepa priča inspirisana bajkom o Pepeljugi. Da, neke situacije u knjizi su blesave i nerealne, ali snaga priče, likovi i emotivna povezanost zasenjuje primedbe koje imam u vezi realnosti. Bila sam jako srećna dok sam bila izgubljena u romansi između Benedicta Bridgertona i Sophie Beckett.

Whenever reading a Julia Quinn novel, it's always an all nighter for me! Forget the family, forget dinner? The only thing that would get my eyes unglued from the pages, would be a life and death emergency.

An Offer from a Gentleman has characters that are full of spunk and fire. This was the perfect Cinderella story that is tried and true. Except in this Cinderella story she is able to keep her wits about herself and remain practical except when both our hero and Cinderella come in contact with

The Duke and I gave us a sweet romance, The Viscount Who Loved Me gave us a hilarious one, and An Offer From a Gentleman gave us a magical one.

This is magic in it's true form, and it's the main reason why people read.

I know that many of my friends here on Goodreads don't like stories where the hero and heroine fall in love at first sight, but when I read a story like this one, I can say exactly why I love this theme.

It just has to be done in the most realistic way, and only very few authors capture a realistic angle. But Julia Quinn? Wow.

Quem me conhece sabe que odeio a história da Cinderela. A menina pobre que vai ao baile, conhece o príncipe, apaixonam-se à primeira vista e ficam juntos por causa de um sapato [um mísero sapato!] não me convence minimamente!

Mas o que é que a Cinderela tem a ver com este livro? Tudo! Amor e Enganos é muito semelhante à história da Cinderela... só que infinitamente melhor! Só Julia Quinn teve a capacidade de pegar em algo que odeio com cada fibra do meu ser e transformá-la em algo que eu amo.

Benedict (yes, the second brother.) meets a mysterious girl at a masquerade party. They fell in love in one night. Only for her to disappear at midnight to never be heard again.
He looks for her, but he doesn’t find her again and somehow she took his heart with her.


Two years later a sassy maid make Benedict heart beat again. Along with an unusual friendship they also fall in love. But not only they are from different social circles (and that was apparently a huge thing in the r

I like Julia Quinn, I really do, but this was not her finest moment. Looking back on "Bridgertons" #1 & #2, maybe this just is not her finest series. This book was so ... blah. And the hero was such an ASS. On the plus side, it was nice that the heroine was not from conventional society, she is the bastard daughter of an earl, raised as his ward until his death, at which point she is Cinderella to the evil stepmother and two step-sisters. (She even secretly goes to a ball, meets the hero, an ...more

An Offer From a Gentleman definitely takes its inspiration from Cinderella, but it is still a sweet story with lovable characters written in JQ's own witty style.

Sophie is sweet and spunky. Benedict is a hopeless romantic. Together they make a very charming couple. I loved that Benedict spent three years searching for Sophie after their initial meeting at the masquerade ball.

The confrontation between Benedict's mother, Violet Bridgerton, and Araminta (Sophie's wicked step-mother) when Violet c

UTTERLY ROMANTIC. An Offer from a Gentleman is a fairy tale retelling, but what makes it better than a fairy tale is that this fairy tale may have or can come true.

Once upon a time, there lived a girl named Sophie Becket, who is our Cinderella. She’s a bastard child by the earl of Penwood. She is neither recognized nor thrown out, but is known as the earl’s ward. But everyone can see that she’s a bastard, her eyes, hair and everything about her tells it out aloud, but nobody points that fact out

Este libro me encantó. aaay la verdad lo amé. ❤💙❤💙

No es tan divertido como los otros anteriores, sino es más conmovedor, tierno y romántico aquí suspiré de amor. La historia es un cuento de Hadas clásico de la cenicienta, tenía todos los elementos y fueron muy bien llevados y adaptados al romance histórico.

It's becoming quite the habit that I start one of these books before bed and then stay up to ungodly hours finishing it, because I have no self control. But I just wasn't tired! And I wanted to see what happened! (Okay, so I knew what was going to happen, that's the whole point of reading romance novels, but you know what I mean.)

An Offer From a Gentleman is the third of Julia Quinn's Bridgerton books, and it's basically a re-telling of Cinderella* (with some variations, of course). Sophie Becke

I simply adored this Cinderella-inspired historical filled with sexy, sweet moments!
It was also quite touching. The heroine Sophie Beckett was such a treat, and her personality and insecurities shined bright in a most endearing way!

At 20-years old…Sophie gave into a dream. One night she stole away to a masquerade ball and met her soul mate, Benedict Bridgerton, London’s most eligible bachelor. But he never knew her identity. As much as the debonair Benedict looke

Well I have noticed that every time I don’t feel very well the idea of reading an historical romance books serves like the best medicine and which better medicine than a Julia quinn’s book? An offer from a gentleman was a quite entertaining read. Definitely not Julia’s best book ever but the book that all the girls with a big romantic heart who believe in fairytales will love it. Based on the classical Cinderella story hopes to touch every romantic girl’s heart. I totally understand that not eve

I’ll be quite honest... I didn’t think much of Benedict before this book. Like many of the ton, I saw him as Number Two of the Bridgertons and now, I love him. He wasn’t mentioned often in the previous books, so I was looking forward to Colin’s book much more than Benedict’s.

Going into this book, I already knew that this book followed the Cinderella theme. A poor, young woman is fated with an evil stepmother and two equally annoying step-sisters. She gets one chance to live out her dreams and go

My Review – Short and Sweet

Starting out with the delightful feel of the fairytales Ever After and Cinderella, Julia Quinn’s An Offer From A Gentleman quickly takes on a magical life of its own and becomes another ‘feel good’ installment of the Bridgerton series! The charm of Benedict and Sophie along with the chance to revisit the other Bridgertons has made this one my favorite of the series so far.

As far as fluffy reads go, they don't get fluffier than An Offer from a Gentleman.

I thought the story really sweet. It definitely has a strong Cinderella feel to it, but very nicely done. I went through the book very quickly because it seems to me that there isn't much depth in the story. Nonetheless, a very sweet tale.

Surprisingly, the most moving part for me was when Benedict's mother, Violet, told Benedict that she wished his father were there, when Benedict told her of his troubles. Benedi

Me encantan las series adonde cada integrante de una familia tiene su propia historia y adonde ademas el resto interactua de manera indirecta en cada entrega.
Dicho esto, y con respecto puntualmente a la serie Bridgertons, cada libro creo que me gusta un poco más que el anterior, el relato de Julia Quinn es precioso y las historias son originales, divertidas y emotivas al mismo tiempo.
Me encanta creer que algunos miembros de la sociedad inglesa hayan podido ser como esta familia tan peculiar, ado
