    Historical Romance

    The Duke I Tempted by Scarlet Peckham Secrets of Charlotte Street #1 London Mid 1700’s Private BDSM club Keys More Different but well done, this romance tells of loss, pain, duty, dreams and desire. Poppy’s desire for freedom from the power men have over women. Archer’s desire and need for a type of release most do not understand. Loss of family that both have experienced. Poppy’s dream of financial independence and a successful business as a botanist. Archer’s duty to provide an heir is the catalyst that sets this story in motion. A marriage of convenience…yes…but with embers that can blow into a conflagration if honest communication is not present. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found both Archer and Poppy to be well crafted strong individuals that had personalities, goals and feelings that were amenable to one. The dialogue and behavior of both characters was believable. And, I found I could understand and relate to both Poppy and Archer – I cared for them and wanted them to succeed in their desires and endeavors AND find a way to a HEA. The writing was superb. The club on Charlotte Street as a basis for a series gives leave for much to happen in an interesting historical time period. I look forward to reading the next book in this series to see where this debut author will take us next. Thank you to NetGalley and NYLA for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Great Debut

    This was an unexpected story with a topic I have not read. But with this being the first book by this author I thought I would go ahead and finish once I started. Archer, the Duke of Westmead has overcome a lot and become a wealthy investor in London. Needing to marry and have a heir, he really wants to keep his secrets and deep scarred heart well hidden. Poppy Cavendish is a botanist who is know for garden designs but needs funds to expand her nursery business. When Poppy takes a commission to decorate a lavish garden setting for the ball of Archer's sister, she ends up staying with them until she can get the project finished. As she and Archer interact, there is a great attraction but Archer is has such low self esteem, he is convinced Poppy would not care for him and his secrets. But you can never overestimate the power of love and these two have an interesting journey getting there.

    Fabulous debut!

    Fabulous debut by Scarlett Peckham! It's a BDSM themed romance, with Archer feeling he needs to atone for a loss in his life by experiencing pain. No one knows of his secret, and when he's faced with having to marry and produce an heir, he ends up with a most unlikely woman - the female botanist Poppy whom his sister hires to make a lavish forested setting for her ball. Poppy discovers Archer's secret desires and finds that rather than repel her, they fascinate her. This historical details are well written and engaging, drawing the reader into the world with ease. The sex is steamy, and the emotional connection between Archer and Poppy grows as they share details of their lives with each other. But revealing that they are falling in love with each other is a step that requires trust and there are some ups and downs for them as they strive to understand and be the person the other one needs. The happy ending is worth the wait and the story kept me enthralled all the way through. Archer and Poppy turn out to be a perfect match. I can't wait to read the next in the series!

    Absolutely delightful

    I loved this book, and was so glad I read it! Poppy is a strong and self-sufficient horticulturalist dealing with a crisis for her business when she's interrupted by the Duke of Westmead and his sister planning for a ball — there's drama and secrets and intensity and Poppy and Westmead both grow in their relationship while keeping true to themselves. I immediately pre-ordered the next in the series!
