A refreshing and entertaining romance that bravely stretches the genre's boundaries. -- Stephanie Laurens, #1 <em>New York Times</em>Best Selling Author on <em>The Rakess</em> An astonishingly good debut...The whole book is a breath of fresh air, both a complex, layered story and a soaring romance with two very real people at its heart. -- New York Times Book Review on <em>The Duke I Tempted</em> irresistible, wildly sex-positive... an assured, talented writer, who somehow manages to write with a style that feels both plucked from the periodicals of the 18th century and hilariously, outrageously modern... With her ability to tread the line between the most diverting of historical circumstances and a progressive level of sex positivity that makes me want to sing her praises from the rooftops, Peckham proves herself one of the most exciting romance authors on the rise. -- Entertainment Weekly (A grade) on <em>The Earl I Ruined</em> Combining the rich emotion of a traditional gothic romance with complex, modern characters... A novel about the lies people tell, the barriers we build to protect ourselves and the fears we must overcome to let ourselves be loved. -- Washington Post (5 Best Romances Novels of 2018) on <em>The Duke I Tempted</em> A beautifully written, character-driven story that expertly unravels a big misunderstanding, and surprises with its twists and turns and wicked secrets right up until the end. -- NPR, on <em>The Earl I Ruined</em>
