A New York Times Bestseller

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn comes the story of Benedict Bridgerton, in the third of her beloved Regency-set novels featuring the charming, powerful Bridgerton family, now a series created by Shondaland for Netflix.

BENEDICT'S STORY

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.

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… (mais)

Julia Quinn’s Cinderella. Unoriginal, predictable, occasionally cringey. But gosh darn-it it’s my favorite Bridgerton novel so far. ( )
  ilkjen | May 8, 2024 |
I read and loved the first two books in this series a couple of years ago. Then the TV adaptation threw me with its not-the-way-I-read-it interpretations and promotion of inconsequential characters to central roles. But I digress.

As its cover declares, this is Benedict Bridgerton's tale, and its narrative delves into the life of the second-oldest Bridgerton and the woman who captivates his heart. It's a modern-day Cinderella story, with a first act that mirrors the classic fairy tale, and experiencing Julia Quinn's ingenious adaptation of this familiar story to her world was an absolute delight.

As always, the dialogue is vibrant, but the most poignant moments are found in Sophie and Benedict's innermost thoughts, a treasure that can't be fully captured in a screen adaptation. And there is a sizzling, kindle-melting, intimate scene between the couple, an element I always enjoy more in writing.

If you've read and liked the first two books, you'll know what you're in for, and you're sure to enjoy this instalment. If you know the series from the TV adaptation, it's highly recommended to go back and read the books from the beginning, as the differences are substantial. In this reader's opinion, the written originals are the definitive version of these stories. ( )

A classic Cinderella story, complete with absent father, wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and handsome not-quite-prince, but a Bridgerton is close enough. Sophie was, officially, an earl's ward, but everyone in their house knew she was his daughter - including awful Araminta, her beautiful and cruel elder daughter Rosamund, and her kind but weak younger daughter Posy. Sophie toils for Araminta, but spends one magical night at a Bridgerton ball, and falls in love with Benedict, who is also entranced by her. She flees at midnight, leaving behind an embroidered glove; cut to a few years later, and Sophie has left Araminta's house and is working as a maid at a house where Benedict attends a party and rescues her from certain harm.

He doesn't recognize her from the ball, but of course she knows him - and knows they cannot marry, and she refuses to be his mistress, due to the pain being a bastard caused in her own life. Benedict's family is unusually supportive, especially his mother Violet and brother Colin, and after a suspenseful scene in which Araminta has Sophie thrown in jail for theft, and Benedict (and Posy, and Violet) play a role in freeing her and setting her life back on course.

Quotes

She'd fallen in love with the wrong man. She could never have him on her terms, and she refused to go to him on his.
It was hopeless. (ch. 14)

Now she was forever stuck between two worlds, with no clear place in either. (ch. 15)

But if she was so certain that she'd done the right thing, why did it hurt so much? It was as if her heart were perpetually breaking. Every day, it tore some more, and every day, Sophie told herself that it could not get worse, that surely her heart was finished breaking... (ch. 18)

Love could not conquer all. At least not for her. (ch. 18)

"Nothing is ever as complicated as it is in one's mind." (Colin to Benedict, ch. 21) ( )

Almost bought a copy, and then remembered that library digital collections exist! Julia Quinn does Cinderella, except Bridgerton. Sophie's a great character but big oofs on how Benedict gets her to come to London. ( )
  Daumari | Dec 28, 2023 |
Como en el cuento de Cenicienta, Sophie ve una noche cumplirse su sueño. A espaldas de su madrastra, se viste como una reina y acude al baile de disfraces más importante de Londres. Lo que es más, consigue captar la atención de Benedict Bridgerton, el soltero más atractivo y encantador de la reunión. Sin embargo, pronto vuelve a enfrentarse a su cruda realidad, la de una hija ilegítima, pobre y sin recursos.
El destino quiere darle una segunda oportunidad cuando entra a servir en casa de Benedict, aunque él no reconoce en ella a la hermosa joven a la que lleva años buscando. Ella es ahora una simple criada, incapaz de revelarle la verdad. La magia de aquella noche parece perdida para siempre ¿o quizas no?
