We all know the reformed Rake trope. He’s out doing his thing with the ladies but suddenly he meets THE ONE and he opens his heart to love and marriage. It’s a classic and a favorite of many a romance reader. The Rakess is not that book. Our rake is our Heroine and while she meets a man who makes her rethink her party-hardy lifestyle, she is not about to turn away from her core values. Also, our hero is not a virgin and he likes it spicy in the bedroom. For your hosts, this book was akin to a revelation so we had to talk to the author herself and get the inside scoop! We had a fantastic afternoon chat with Scarlett Peckham and we deep-dived into her world of the Society of Sirens. We spoke all about her new book and what makes it the game changer we are embracing with arms open wide. **if you don’t like SPOILERS, you may need to do some homework**
