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?
Cover: There's something about this cover that I really like.  Maybe it's the Cinderella-esqu image, but I just like it.

I recently reading The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn, and I fell in love with it.  So much so that after I finished reading it I immediately had to pick up An Offer From a Gentleman.  And I'm so glad I did.
I've discovered a new to me Regency author where I can just binge read book after book.
I enjoyed An Offer From a Gentleman just as much as The Viscount Who Loved Me, although with this one, I felt it was bit of a Cinderella retelling...and I FREAKING love them.  I read The Prince Who Loved Me by Karen Hawkins earlier this year, and this reminded me of that book as well.  Regency fairytale retellings are a favourite of mine.
An Offer From a Gentleman really reminded me of my favourite movie as well, Ever After: A Cinderella Story- a Cinderella story that maybe can't be described a wholly believable but a tad more realistic- no fairy godmothers or magic.
A fabulous Regency romance, and I can't wait to delve into more of these books.
5/5 stars.
