An Offer from a Gentlemen by Julia Quinn

From Goodreads:
Will she accept his offer before the clock strikes midnight?

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 his heart, will Benedict sacrifice his only chance for a fairy tale love?

From Me:
What can I say?  I love the Bridgerton series.  Every time I read one I think "this is my favorite so far!" 
There are eight in the series, and this is only my 3rd, so I have a bunch more favorites ahead of me.
If you are interested in historical romance at all, but don't know where to begin-- Julia Quinn's Bridgertons are the perfect place to start.

I've read a couple of her books, but not the Bridgerton series yet.

This is my favorite Bridgerton book so far. I've read the first three twice to refresh my memory as I had bought the fourth earlier in the summer. An Offer from a Gentleman was a wonderful, fractured fairy tale version of Cinderella.

This does sound good! Historical romance is hit and miss with me. I will have to give this author a try.
