Présentation de l'éditeur

Will she accept the offer before the clock strikes midnight?

Sophie Beckett never dreamed she'd be able to sneak into Lady Bridgerton's famed masquerade ball. Though the daughter of an earl, Sophie has been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But now, waltzing 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. He has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, but this breathtaking maid makes him weak with wanting her. If he offers her his heart, will he sacrifice his only chance for a fairy-tale love?

Julia Quinn revisite le conte de Cendrillon... L'intérêt, outre le style Quinn, c'est bien sur les bifurcations....Evidemment, je NE déflore PAS la fin (Cendrillon ne traine pas sa marâtre au tribunal, désolé). Mais attendez vous à quelques surprises....

It's an all nighter!!! 18 juillet 2001
Par Janice L. Watson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Whenever reading a Julia Quinn novel, it's always an all nighter for me! Forget the family, chores? What the heck is that? You want dinner? Here's the take out menu - call for delivery! The only thing that would get my eyes unglued from the pages, would be an emergency, and then the book would come along with me.
An Offer From A Gentleman has characters that are witty and humble with just the right amount of spunk and fire to their personalities. Having a Cinderella in the context of being able to keep her wits about herself and remain mostly practical except when they both come into contact with each other.
Benedict and Sophia both seeking the loves they felt was intangible was a clencher yet their souls told them otherwise. Thank Goodness for that! This novel was fun, adventurous and absolutely heart-rendering,
I was cheering when her step-mother got her just rewards! I guess my family is used to my laughter, tears and cheers when reading a Julia Quinn novel, and dare the person that tries to interrupt when I'm engrossed.
Julia, I look forward to your next novel with abated breath as always! You warm the hearts of many of your fans!

Laugh and Sigh...Unforgetable! 10 juillet 2001
Par Abbys - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
FINALLY!  ...Like many of you, I too have been anxiously waiting for this book.  I have loved both THE DUKE AND I (1st book of the series) & THE VISCOUNT WHO LOVE ME (2nd book). The Bridgerton's are all adorable LOT.  I enjoyed each and every one of them... So naturally, I expected to love this book just as much.  However, I am surprise that it has exceeded my own expectation.  I read it late last night after I got home from work, 11:30pm and finished it just an hour ago, 7:30am.  Try as I might, I just couldn't put it down.  Embarrassingly, I still have that Tingle-Goosebumps feeling, not to mention a silly smile is still imprinted on my face!  To think I haven't even slept yet...and I have duty at 3pm again today.  HA! I will be daydreaming of Benedict and Sophie then.  I will definitely read this book again tonight!   I tell you this book is dreamy!  Romance story telling at its best!  It's been a long time since a book thoroughly affected me this way. Truly a heart quenching, heart warming read. 
The Editorial Reviews pretty much sums up the book synopsis so I'll just throw in my opinion of the book without summarizing it:
At first, I thought this book is going to be another RETELLING of a CINDERELLA story, which I don't mind at all.  I thought I'd pretty much know what will happened next and how this book will end but I was wrong.  Ms. Quinn is truly such a gifted writer.  She knows how to use the fairy tale Cinderella story we all know and love.... then she molded it with her own ideas, filling it with humor and hearty twists for a spunk of uniqueness.  There is no "Dark-Past", "Bad-Boy", "Rakish-Rogue" image here for Benedict Bridgerton, which was a refreshing change of character from the books I've been reading lately.  He is actually normal and very Gentlemanly-Decent and Proper.  Sophia is no over-uppity, spunky-witty noblewoman.  She struggled all her life. Struggled to find happiness. She does have principles and values yet she is also human, weak to a fault esp. when her heart is concern.  She wanted to be loved and to be accepted all her life... She longed to BELONG... That was her weakness, of which she felt when she's with Benedict and his family. Oh, how she makes me teary. The confrontation, confession, revelations were all heart quenching. The ending was a great relief! 
I normally would prefer lots of updates and apprearances of the heros/heroines of the previous books in the series. In this book however, there is very few appearances of Anthony and Dafne... and even none of Simon and Kate yet I still give this book a 5 stars rating. You see, despite that small niggle, I still felt satisfied and complete with this book. There was updates of their children and that seems to be enough. Probably because Benedict and Sophie's love story caught me deeply, overwhelmed me that it made me forget about the others. Or probably it's just Ms. Quinn's style of writing that just leave her readers fully content in the end.
The Lady Whistledown Gossip Column is as always the added intrigue not only in this book but all throughout the entire series.  I tell you, the more I read, the more I know for sure who this person is.  I can't wait to read the next book on this Bridgerton series. I am assuming it's Colin's and Penelope? Hmmm.... I honestly don't want this series to end! I fear it is close to its end.  Ugh~ Well, I suggest you all start ordering Julia Quinn's BRIDGERTON SERIES. It is definitely a PLEASURE and a DREAMY read.

Book three was definitely a "3" for me. 5 juillet 2006
Par J. Lesley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I began reading the Bridgerton series before I knew that it was a series. After beginning with book four I decided to go in order and thereafter have been reading in sequence. Books one, two, and four are fabulous. Three, not so. In all the other books Benedict is a non-character. I agree with another reviewer, all we know about him is that he is the tallest. This is a character that Ms. Quinn definitely short changed on her way to giving him his own story. Poor guy, all he ever seems to do is just hang around his brothers while they (Anthony and Colin, Gregory is still too young) are Bridgertons with a capital "B". Benedict has no substance. What does he do all day or even all night? If you are looking for clues in the other books, you will be sorely disappointed.

I almost gave up on this book. I would read a chapter and then go fold the clothes from the dryer. Read a chapter and walk to the mailbox. Read a chapter and (horror of horrors!) go watch mindless drivel on television. It did not capture me. I had to read over 250 pages !!! before I actually cared about EITHER character. Sophie was cinderella. Even so, I didn't particularly care. I forced myself to finish it because I have an unwritten rule with myself that I cannot begin a new book until I've given the current one a fair chance. It was a duty, and not one I relished until I finally became engaged in the lives of these two people. All the other members of the family were still as interesting as in previous novels. I got a sneaking suspicion that Ms. Quinn thought of Benedict as "number two" also. Her writing is wonderful. She tells her stories with wit and a charm which make me want to keep reading. But, for me, Benedict and Sophie never became my friends. He treated her, even before he began to care for her, in a manner which would never have happened in that time period. They were both incredibly familiar with one another, even in the presence of others (beginning with Mr and Mrs Crabtree) and not just while they were alone. A servant would NEVER have been so forward as to throw a candle stump at someone so high above her in rank. Yes, Ms. Quinn wanted us to see her as a spirited heroine but many, many of Sophies actions were ridiculous for a servant.

It finished well, not great, just well. Frankly, I was glad to get it over with because I have a mountain of books left to read. I'm thinking seriously about changing that unwritten rule. I've run across some real clinkers from some Regency romance authors lately but not, I'm glad to say, Julia Quinn. I think this was just a hiccup.

Best Second Epilogue...Simply Enchanting 1 février 2011
Par Allison Paton - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
Oh Ms. Julia Quinn has out done herself again wit this Epilogue in my opinion. I found that this was almost or maybe more enjoyable that the original book. She was still able to write with her noted whit and humor and I thoroughly enjoyed every second that I was reading this story.
I thought that Hugh was just the perfect guy for Posy; he is someone to treat her with the love and adoration that she deserves. And I thought that reading the section where it was told from his perspective was charming and endearing.
I especially loved the line when Sophie is thinking about how Hugh doesn't remember how he takes his tea. Simply delightful.
This one was my favorite out of the lot and I firmly believe that anyone who loved the Bridgerton series definatley need this in their collection.
5 starts again for our wonderful author. =)

Best of the Bridgertons! 6 août 2008
Par Magnolia88 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This book is OUTSTANDING. I couldn't put it down. A truly romantic and moving story.

I've read all eight of the Bridgerton series (the first four are all fantastic -- the last two are by far the weakest), and while I know most people prefer Anthony or Colin, give me Benedict! I think what I liked most about this story is that the hero was actively pursuing the heroine through the entire book and didn't have any "issues" or "hangups" like the heroes of the first two books ("The Duke and I" and "The Viscount Who Loved Me," both great).

I also really loved Sophie and understood her plight. I've read a lot of comments about how other readers couldn't understand her decision not to reveal herself to Benedict immediately, but it made sense to me because of her fear of getting caught (she was facing jail time, and possibly hanging!) and her fear of him in general, getting too close, etc. After awhile, I guess she should have come clean, but I can understand how it became harder and harder for her to admit that she hadn't been entirely truthful. Plus, she still thought it wouldn't make any difference - it's not like she believed they would have a fairy-tale ending once he discovered who she was.

As far as Benedict goes, he came across as much kinder and sweeter than Anthony and more mature and level-headed than Colin (not that I don't love them both also, great heroes all). From his point of view, he was making her a good "offer" and we can't really judge his actions in terms of what someone would do today. He wanted to be with her the only way he knew how, and was willing to do whatever he could to make that happen.

Highly recommended for any fan of Julia Quinn and historical romances in general.
