Cover of Any Old Diamonds


Lord Alexander Pyne-ffoulkes is the younger son of the Duke of Ilvar, with 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.


Alec Pyne is the cast-off son of a duke, who hires a pair of jewel thieves to rob his father in revenge. Cue constant threats of betrayal, unexpected feelings, and HEISTS. Oh, and as you may have noticed when I squeaked about this before, I really liked it. It has possibly knocked Spectred Isle off its spot as my favourite KJ Charles book, which em>seriously takes some doing.

Automated DW dev instances

[personal profile] roadrunnertwice posting in [site community profile] dw_dev

I had some fixes I wanted to attempt and it looked like the Dreamhack service might be sleeping or something, so I put together an automated way to bring up a Dreamwidth dev server.

It seems to be in decent working order now, so I'd love it if some other people could give it a try and suggest improvements!

One caveat: checkconfig.pl is broken when the stars are right one or more Perl dependencies has a current version number that ends in 0, so until that PR gets merged you'll need to set the dw_dev::dw_free_commit setting to a branch on your fork that includes the fix.
