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.… (mer)

4.5 stars
As with every K.J. Charles book I've read so far - once I started it, I couldn't stop until I was done.
I love how every character in her books is unique to any other she's written. Both Alec and Jerry are in no way typical and managed to surprise me - Alec turned out unexpectedly sly and Jerry unexpectedly sweet. I loved them both.
The setting seemed a touch over the top - I was a bit incredulous when it came to Alec's parents, but turns out they were based on a real couple. ( )

Audio Reread: 7/11/21 I'd give it 4.5 now without a doubt. I round up for Susan.
Instead of offering a coherent review of any kind, QUOTES. None should be spoilers.
Alec took a seat opposite Susan with his back to the door, and helped himself to a boiled egg, but couldn't stomach the wobbling whiteness, the too-vivid viscous yolk.
---
"Right." Lane was going a little red. "Right. One more question: do I look like your fucking lackey?"
--
Jerry looked at that picture for what seemed hours, face unreadable. He didn't speak, he didn't move, and Alec watched him, throat as constricted as though Jerry's hand was gripping it tight.
---
"If you could work out a way to remove half your heart and soul and lend them to me, we might both be normal people."

I'm very relieved I decided to reread this, it's been 1.5 years, and I didn't realize just how much set up there is for Susan's book here.

Original Review
Well that was quick.

Lovely. Sorry to say my reviews are suffering a bit, but I might have to come back to fill in some here. Might not. ( )

I loved it so much! Every time I think I’ve read the best of KJ Charles she comes out with a new title to blow me away.

This book delivers an extremely good romance with a twisty plot in the style of a Victorian sensation novel. It also offers: lady detectives, SECRETS, horrible rich people getting their comeuppance and exciting easter eggs for those, who’ve read Sins of the Cities series. Plus, you know, it’s just as deliciously filthy as that gorgeous cover promises.

Another immensely enjoyable one from KJ Charles, straight to the favorites shelf. ( )

Alec is eking out a living as an illustrator, because his terrible duke of a father exiled him and his brother and sister for not showing enough deference to their stepmother. A scheme to steal his stepmother’s jewels brings him into contact with the Lilywhite Boys, expert jewel thieves. Sex and intrigue ensue. I like the fantasy Charles better, but this was pleasant enough. ( )
