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 her his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?… (mais)

Benedict and Sophie's story is a Cinderella retelling. The two meet at a masquerade ball from which Sophie escapes without Benedict learning her identity. He looks for her for quite some time and both long for each other. Two years later they meet again by chance and the chemistry is still there even though he doesn't know Sophie is more than just a servant but is his lady in silver. I liked this one. It read easily and I love learning more about the Bridgerton family. I was annoyed at times by Benedict's attitude, but was happy he finally saw how wrong he was and that he understood Sophie's motivations in the end. I will continue with the series. ( )

This is quite a good Cinderella retelling. Starring Benedict Bridgerton and Sophie Beckett. She is the illegitimate daughter who is mistreated by the woman her father marries who gets an opportunity to attend a masquerade ball with the help of the other servants in the house. There she meets Benedict and the attraction is immediate but she has a timetable to leave. Her stepmother's reaction leads to her leaving and discovering that her life will be constrained by he illegitimacy and the fact that she has no background to speak of.
Benedict is at a party he isn't enjoying, he decides to leave and on his way out he discovers Sophie being attacked by the son of the house. Sophie finds herself being rescued by Benedict and they retreat to his country house. They get caught in a storm and he becomes ill. The relationship develops but all he's initially offering is that she would become his mistress but she doesn't want that.

There are some moments of dubious consent but overall it's a powerful retelling of Cinderella. ( )

This Cinderella story stars Benedict Bridgerton and Sophie Beckett. Sophie is the illegitimate daughter of the Earl of Penwood who took her in as an infant, called her his ward, and treated her with benign neglect. When he marries a widow with two daughters, Sophie hopes they will be sisters to her. But the new Lady Penwood hates her on sight and the daughters treat her badly. When the Earl dies, she's left in Lady Penwood's care and treated as an unpaid servant.

The servants conspire to send her to a Masquerade Ball hosted by Violet, Lady Bridgerton, where she meets and falls in love with Benedict. But she flees at midnight leaving him to search for her. But the evil stepmother throws her out of the house when she learns that Sophie went to the Ball.

Two years elapse with Sophie working as a housemaid for a family in the country and Benedict trying to move on but still having dreams about the mysterious woman in the silver gown and still looking for her. They meet again when he rescues her from the lecherous son of the house.

They spend some time together and he proposes that she become his mistress. She declines. He brings her home to his mother where she works as a Lady's Maid to his sisters. Lady Bridgerton suspects that Sophie has a hidden past and knows that her son loves her.

Great romance. Great characters. Both humor and heart and the realistic problem of social class differences and their effect on one's range of life choices. ( )

An Offer From a Gentleman is the third book in the Bridgerton series, telling the story of Benedict and his path to true love. It’s very different to the preceding two books, but that doesn’t mean that it isn’t any less fun. In the first series of Bridgerton, we didn’t learn too much about Benedict other than he enjoyed art and wasn’t quite as worldly as he thought. So I went into this not really knowing what to expect of Benedict.

The story of Sophie Beckett is somewhat of a Cinderella tale. The illegitimate daughter of an earl, she lives with him as his ward and is schooled alongside her stepsisters, much to her stepmother’s dismay. When the earl dies, Sophie is relegated to their maid and is treated very cruelly. But one night, the servants conspire to send Sophie to the Bridgerton’s masquerade ball where she meets Benedict. It’s love at first sight, but Sophie has to be home before the rest of her family. She leaves Benedict with a glove, which doesn’t really give him any further cues to her identity. Unfortunately Sophie’s stepmother finds out and kicks her out. Fast forward a few years and Sophie is now a maid, who Benedict rescues from being attacked by several drunken men. Benedict, who has been nursing a candle for his mysterious woman in silver from the ball, likes Sophie and they even share a few kisses at his country home. But then it gets messy as he asks her to be his mistress, not seeing any kind of permanent future with a maid. This is where is gets messy through a modern lens (especially in relation to the recent March 4 Women protests in Australia). Benedict doesn’t see Sophie as an equal due to her work and she refuses to reveal her true identity which might have helped a bit. He’s adamant that he can’t marry her because of his love for his mystery woman/her social status. But it’s quite OK to use her for sex. These scenes show Sophie for the strong woman she is, not wanting to have children that end up ostracised like her and choosing relative poverty over comfort.

In fact, it’s the women who shine in this book. Violet Bridgerton, mother of the Bridgertons, is portrayed as a caring employer and woman who is not afraid to speak her mind. She also gets involved in a little blackmail in the showdown scene between Sophie and her family which happens to take place in gaol. This Mrs Bridgerton is closer to the wise woman that’s portrayed in the TV series and even manages to bring Benedict down a peg or two when he decides he wants to marry Sophie, servant or otherwise. Sophie is a champion, who trudges on with living her best life but being realistic in that she often wishes things could be different. She’s not afraid to stand up for her beliefs, and she won’t be swayed by anyone. She’s strong, independent and not swayed by those who hold more power. Is she too good for Benedict? The answer is possibly, but she helps redeem him somewhat (as an Australian, being transported there isn’t such a bad thing y’know…). I loved the Cinderella aspect, and Sophie’s character. Benedict was an idiot at times, but it’s nice to know that the Bridgertons aren’t perfect. And of course, Lady Whistledown is always catty fun!

Third book in the Bridgertons series!
This time, the love life of the second oldest Bridgerton, Benedict, is the focus.
This one is pretty cute, based on Cinderella in parts.
I enjoyed being immersed in the Bridgerton stories again, but gave it only 3 stars because of some of the character flaws/actions/class conflicts of Benedict which had me irritated:-) ( )
