An Offer From a Gentleman by Julia Quinn Book Summary

A New York Times Bestseller

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Benedict Bridgerton, in the third of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix.


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.

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?

I’m not a big reader. My mind wonders too much to ever get through a book....HOWEVER, once I started reading this... I couldn’t put it down. Amazing! I will start the next one now :)

I really enjoyed this book

I love the Bridgerton books, but this one is the best! No one who reads these kind of books, should miss the climax between Violet and Sophie’s evil stepmother! I hope they include this scene in the Netflix series, when they do Benedict’s story!

I loved it

I lived this book, its best for new Bridgerton fans who have finished the new season of Bridgerton on Netflix (the viscount who loved me). And i will be reading the next book!

It’s a very good and enjoyable read but man is the beginning almost identical to Cinderella and that to me seems a little easy of a direction to go.

UGH!!!!!! I paid $7.99 for this book and only got 323 pages of it! The pages I did get to read were very good, too bad I won’t get to finish the story.

Benedict is my favorite Bridgerton and this book did him justice

I loved Benedict’s story. I read it after I finished Eloise’s story. When I initially read the reviews, I lost interest in reading it and based on how Benedict’s character was portrayed in the Netflix series - I just wasn’t interested in his character. He is so much more developed than in the tv series and way less promiscuous and not as into art. Thank Goodness!!! One of my favorites in the series.

At first, I thought it was a Cinderella story, but it was definitely more than that! It’s a great read!

I found this book to be very entertaining from beginning to end. I really like the Cinderella plot points of the story and I enjoyed Benedict and Sophie’s characters tremendously. This was great fun to read!

Out of all the books, I think it's my least favorite. The Cinderella story has been done.

Loved that this book included more of the characters

I love this book. It’s so sweet and I love that it has elements from Cinderella!

As far as romance novels go, this was pretty entertaining. It seemed more like Sophie’s story rather than Benedict’s.

This book was wonderful! A page turner and a good story to add to the Bridgerton collection

Love the continued saga of the Bridgertons. Can’t wait to read the next book.

So well written!!!

My favorite so far. I love the dynamic between them. Can’t wait to read the other stories.

You can not go wrong with this one. So romantic and realistic. I have to say in the beginning I had doubts because I thought it was going to be a boring Cinderella story but it is so much more. Worth the money and time. I could almost feel Benedict’s pain. My favorite of book of the series.

By FAR my favorite of the series and I didn’t know if Anthony and Kate’s story could be topped. I PRAY shonda recreates this book true to the writing because I simply love Sophie.

Couldn’t put down this classic Cinderella story. Read in under 24 hours...and I work full time!

Great read, my favorite of the series.

I could not put it down & ended up finishing the entire thing in less than a day! I love this series, the Bridgerton family is so entertaining!!!

I just loved the story and the characters. The author really brings everything together so well.

My favorite book of the series so far.

My favorite book of the series followed by Francesca and Hyacinth story. Yes, Daphne’s story started my curiosity with the series which was my first love but I ended loving the others more. It’s all good books, witty and well worth reading.

I think so far this is my favorite of the series. I could not put this book down. I think I cried more than I laughed, but I was so invested! I read this book in one day, straight through the night into the wee hours of the morning. I just had to know!! This book pulled at my heart strings and spoke to me on a very intimate level. Having suffered childhood/teenage trauma I felt this book in my soul. I really don’t know how the author will top this one in my eyes. But I will soon find out! On to the next!

It’s a Cinderella story at its best! So far this has been my favorite book in the series.

Lovely story. The characters are so well developed and each book keeps you wanting more!

This is my favorite book from this serie!

Quick and easy read. Enjoyed it.

A nice, easy read that brought a smile to my face several times. I’m looking forward to #4.

I read the second novel and this one, both really good. I could’t put the book down. I had to know what would happen next. It made me laugh and it made me cry. I recommend it!

Cinderella retold. Instant attention grabber. Page after page, you’d want it never ended.

If you love any Bridgerton’s books then this one will be no different, I enjoyed reading it very much.

Cinderella but add alittle spice

Read it all in one sitting.

Not as enjoyable as the first two stories.

Fantastic read

I loved this cindarellaesque addition to the series. Sophie is a beautiful character and I have to say I loved the mother in this one. She’s a lady ahead of her time. The second epilogue left me with a huge smile

I wanted to enjoy this story yet found my eyes rolling in disappointment at the similarity between this and Cinderella. Deceased father, evil stepmother, slaving away for ugly stepsisters... even the fairy godmother getting the lead off to the ball until the stroke of midnight... it’s all there. Wish there been new characters, unsure how this isn’t plagiarism?? Disappointing as the author can turn a lovely phrase.

I smiled the whole way through. Great book I’m already on the next can’t wait to read more and love the second prologue. Was great reading about posy

Very well written and interesting read. Very much enjoyed and finished within 3 days !!

A different twist on Cinderella. Nice drama as you’d expect, and a happy ending. Love the characters and seeing a bit more of the female sibling was nice and especially seeing Lady Bridgerton with a snarky role was lovely

Started reading and realised hours later that I was still reading!

I liked this story the most so far. It was very different from the first two books.

Another wonderful love story, with all the elements of the previous books in this series…..drama, lots of love and a good dose of humour. Here’s to the next….

Interesting characters, romance, twists, bodice ripping moments...what more could you possibly ask for?!

It was a good read, like Cinderella, but overall not the best. Also quite a bit of money.

I loved Benedict and Sophie’s story! It was heartbreaking reading about them meeting then not seeing each other then meeting again but it not being the best circumstances. I also loved the twist with one of her step-sisters near the end as it was so nice and was a lovely example of how kind the Bridgerton family are. This book was quite dramatic but also written incredibly well.

addictive. a must read

Can’t wait to read the next book! Wonderfully written that makes you not want to put it down.. not even for a moment!

Fabulous book, love this series.
