You could use the "Limiter" effect (with the "soft limit" option) to bring the peaks down to -3 dB.

I'm an Audiobook narrator. I use Audacity version 2.2.2 with
The audio I record must measure between -23DB and -18DB RMS, and have
-3DB peak values.
The problem I'm having with a few of my audio files is that they
-3DB peak values, but the RMS is around -26DB. I found a
plug-in. If I change the RMS value to -23, the peak DB value is
0, which is too high. How can I adjust the RMS value to make the
louder without affecting peak DB values?
