Publisher's Summary

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?

Excellent, Touching!

If you could sum up An Offer from a Gentleman in three words, what would they be?

Finding true love

What was one of the most memorable moments of An Offer from a Gentleman?

There were so many memorable moments. When Benedict rescues Sophie from the son of the household she was working at, and from the son's drunken friends, was one.

Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

She always gives a great performance.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, and did. I started listening to it in the afternoon and did not finish until the wee hours of the next day.

Any additional comments?

The book was wonderfully written and the performance perfection.

Much better after "Cinderella" goes away.

Would you listen to An Offer from a Gentleman again? Why?

Maybe. The recreation of the Cinderella story may not be as disconcerting as it was the first time around.After the too obvious, the story was much better.

Would you recommend An Offer from a Gentleman to your friends? Why or why not?

Maybe. It is fun. It is fluff and it was so much better after the author got away from the exact Cinderella story.

Which scene was your favorite?

The scenes in the jail and then in front of the magistrate.The truth comes out!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No.

Any additional comments?

The first part of the story so paralleled the Cinderella story that I could not lose myself in the tale. After it changed, I enjoyed a typical romantic story.

Great performance but uncomfortable story

Would you try another book written by Julia Quinn or narrated by Rosalyn Landor?

Perhaps another book by Julia Quinn. Definitely another book narrated by Rosalyn Landor. I thought her performance was excellent.

What could Julia Quinn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

The main problem I had with this book is that the so called hero behaves in an extremely ugly fashion on many occasions. For a supposed romance, it's not very romantic. The hero is quite abusive and manipulative at times. He's genuinely not that admirable throughout the book and behaves in some pretty disgusting and self centred ways much of the time, taking advantage of the heroine in a number of ways. I didn't really enjoy listening to him and sometimes found the book a grind to continue on with.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

I enjoyed the description of the masquerade ball.

Was An Offer from a Gentleman worth the listening time?

Not 100% convinced.

Any additional comments?

This book gives a pretty ugly picture of the way the lower classes, such as servants, were treated during the Regency period as well as how dependent women were on others. I understand that these are the historical facts of this period but I wouldn't have chosen it as light, romantic listening.
