Summary

Lord Alexander Pyne-ffoulkes, the younger son of the Duke of Ilvar, holds a bitter grudge against his wealthy father. The Duke intends to give his Duchess a priceless diamond parure on their wedding anniversary - so Alec hires a pair of jewel thieves to steal it.

The Duke's remote castle is a difficult target, and Alec needs a way to get the thieves in. Soldier-turned-criminal Jerry Crozier has the answer: He'll pose as a Society gentleman and become Alec's new best friend.

But Jerry is a dangerous man: controlling, remote, and devastating. He effortlessly teases out the lonely young nobleman's most secret desires, and soon he's got Alec in his bed - and the palm of his hand.

Or maybe not. Because as the plot thickens, betrayals, secrets, new loves, and old evils come to light. Now the jewel thief and the aristocrat must keep up the pretence, find their way through a maze of privilege and deceit, and confront the truth of what's between them...all without getting caught.

Enjoyable plots and twists

Story progresses at a believable pace with subplots and twists. Pleasantly surprised as first time for author and listerned to it in one sitting. Narrator read well and creates individual people which is essential in audio books. Will look at author's other books

Upstairs, undercover

I enjoyed the Charm of Magpies series by KJ Charles, and I can now say that Any Old Diamonds, is my new favourite. Cornell Collins performers an entire cast of well-rounded characters and a well-planned plot. Well recomended.

Was not expecting that 😳

Downloaded this to have on the headphones while I did some gardening. Was not expecting such an enjoyable and well considered stroy line. I dont want to give anything away but the many twists really keep you wanting more.

love the characters and the dialect and the progression of character depth as the story unfolds .

gets better in the second half

For me the first half is a bit tedious plus I wasn't a great fan of the dynamic and the sense of whether Alec could trust Jerry. But the second half picked up.
The narrator was great and made the explicit parts sound not-awkward which is always difficult in audiobooks.

Entertaining

I didn’t read the blurb fully before purchase so was initially surprised by all the sex scenes! Be warned if you are prudish. Very entertaining, the story developed well. Generally well read by narrator.

Best narrator for KJ ever!

A wonderful story as ever (I have read/listened to all her books to date). Please continue to use Cornell/Matthew forever more, he's just brilliant at the voices. I have listened to other stories by her with different narrators and no one compares to Mr CC.
