Quinn, Julia. An Offer From A Gentleman (Bridgertons #3). Avon, ISBN 978-0063138643 480 pp. $16.99
An Offer From A Gentleman begins as a Cinderella story, with a earl’s bastard child treated as a ward by her father, then even less when he remarries, and a slave when he dies. When Sophie Beckett sneaks into a ball, dressed to the nines, she captivates one Benedict Bridgerton, who sets out on a mission to find the mystery belle, but is distracted by an equally alluring housemaid…
This third volume in the popular regency series has all the elements fans will swoon over: courtly manners, comedy of errors, period details and true love. Characterizations of the large Bridgeton clan remain consistent from book to book.
