Synopsis (Goodreads):
Will she accept his offer before the clock strikes midnight?

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 that extraordinary woman? 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 his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?
Thoughts on An Offer From a Gentleman: I'm back in with the BRIDGERTONS! *cheers silently* This family, man. THIS FAMILY. They make me laugh. Sometimes I even get a little teary. Not because of the Bridgertons or anything. Not this time, at least. No, this time it was for Sophie. Poor girl.

So. Benedict. Brother #2. I kinda liked the guy. He was bit by the love bug out of the blue and had his mystery woman disappear on him without warning. When he comes across Sophie again and doesn't recognize her, it kinda killed me. Little bit. BUT... watching him fall for her despite his lingering feelings for his mystery woman was fun.

Then there's Sophie. I felt for her. She's straddling two worlds and she doesn't really fit into either. She tries. She really does. Benedict simply refuses to let her fall into the role of servant and that throws her for a loop.


(Also, Mama Bridgerton has my undying support for HER support of Benedict's choices. GO, VIOLET!)

I have the rest of the series lined up and plenty of time on my hands. Let's do this!
