Publisher's Summary

The third novel in the beloved Regency-set world of Julia Quinn's charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shonda Rhimes for Netflix. Welcome to Benedict's story....

Sophie Beckett never dreamt she would 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 had been relegated to the role of servant by her disdainful stepmother. But that night, spinning in the strong arms of the debonair and devastatingly handsome Benedict Bridgerton, she felt like royalty. Yet she knows all enchantments must end.

But Sophie has reckoned without Benedict's determined heart: he has sworn to find and wed his mystery miss, for he knows this is his only chance for a fairy tale love....

Critic Reviews

"Light, pacy and full of feisty heroines." (Guardian on the Bridgerton series)

"Julia Quinn's Bridgerton books take all of the classic tropes we know and love...and gives them a thoroughly modern twist. I can't focus on anything else." (Stylist)

"Quinn is a master of historical romance." (Entertainment Weekly)

Badly written but good story

These books are so badly written, you can tell from the first chapter that the author is writing about a period that she knows little about. The text is littered with 'Americanisms' and inaccuracies so if you are seriously into your period novels then this will wear thin. All of the lead female characters are bimbo's and airheads despite the author continually telling us they are intelligent, which is incredibly disappointing from a female author. If you are any kind of feminist then these books are not for you. HOWEVER I'm a sucker for romance and I just can't stop buying them. That probably says more about me than about the books.

Great Author and Superb Narration

I simply love this series and this narrator is my favourite on audible. If you haven't listened to the others in the Bridgerton books it's best to start at the beginning but I recommend them all!

Felt a bit like a Cinderella story at first

Up to chapter 3/4 seemed to be a Cinderella storey then developed into one of my favourite books

Loved it.

This is Benedict Bridgerton's story and what a wonderful story it is. It is very much like Cinderella, he falls for a masked woman who attends his family's masquerade ball. She attends against her stepmother's wishes and needs to be on her way home by midnight if she is to remain undiscovered, but rather than leave a glass slipper behind, Benedict is left with one of her gloves.
I love the likeness to Cinderella but it is so much more than that. This book, as with the others in the series had the perfect mix of light and dark moments and I loved that it could make me laugh out loud in places.
The narration by Rosalyn Landor as always is perfect. She not only makes the lead characters come to life, but her voices of even the smallest parts are delightful. I am very much looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Disappointed

I listened to the first 2 books a few times. I really like them. This one was just... insipid to give it a word, specially in the beginning. I even tried to listen again to see if I like it but I just can't. It was hard the first time. I'm returning it.

Not my favourite Bridgerton tale

Didn't enjoy it quite as much as the second in the series but still a good story.

A Cinderella story

My favourite of the 3 I’ve read so far. I thought the Duke & I was a great romantic love match story but as I read on I find each next book tell a better story than the one before with the theme of an ‘imperfect pairing’ becoming perfect matches.
