Does a maidservant have the right to refuse marriage to her master or his son when the time for it comes?

We learn from Mishpatim that a father can sell his daughter into the service of a master. This master then designates her as a future bride for himself or his son.

At what age is the maidservant married to the master or his son and is she allowed to refuse the marriage?

I assume she has the right to divorce once she is married (correct me if I'm wrong) so I'm wondering if she could refuse the marriage rather than wasting everyone's time if she thinks it's not a good match.
