Meet the SOCIETY OF SIRENS-three radical, libertine ladies determined to weaponize their scandalous reputations to fight for justice and the love they deserve...

She's a Rakess on a quest for women's rights...

Seraphina Arden's passions include equality, amorous affairs, and wild, wine-soaked nights. To raise funds for her cause, she's set to publish explosive memoirs exposing the powerful man who ruined her. Her ideals are her purpose, her friends are her family, and her paramours are forbidden to linger in the morning.

He's not looking for a summer lover...

Adam Anderson is a wholesome, handsome, widowed Scottish architect, with two young children, a business to protect, and an aversion to scandal. He could never, ever afford to fall for Seraphina. But her indecent proposal-one month, no strings, no future-proves too tempting for a man who strains to keep his passions buried with the losses of his past.

But one night changes everything...

What began as a fling soon forces them to confront painful secrets-and yearnings they thought they'd never have again. But when Seraphina discovers Adam's future depends on the man she's about to destroy, she must decide what to protect... her desire for justice, or her heart.

Reviews for The Rakess (#1 Society of Sirens)

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>
