OS: Welcome to Amy Lane who’s here to talk about her latest book …. Erm and Andrew Grey!
The Inimitable Mr. Grey
By Amy Lane
Okay folks—so, I’m here today to promote Red Fish, Dead Fish, my latest story in the Fish Out of Water series. Now, usually in a blog tour, we talk about ourselves and our newest book until we can’t hardly stand it—but this time out I decided to do something different. I’m going to talk about other people’s books—because I know some amazing romantic suspense authors, and I wanted to celebrate them instead.
So Red Fish, Dead Fish is out on Amazon, it’s the second in the series, and I think you’ll like it very much a lot! That being said, let’s talk about Andrew Grey!
Andrew Grey is one of my oldest and best friends in M/M Romancelandia, and if you ever get a chance to meet him, one of the first things that will strike you is his enthusiasm and genuine excitement to be where he is, meeting people in his life. Any of our mutual friends can recall with perfect clarity the moment they met Andrew—and how wonderful he made them feel.
Now Andrew is promoting a story from his famous Carlisle Cops series, but I happened to be there when he was exploring story arcs from his Day and Knight romantic suspense series written as Dirk Greyson, and I can tell you, he’s got a flair and a feel for the drama and noir mystery that comes with writing romantic suspense. Of course, as Andrew Grey he’s known for his sweetness and definitely for pulling on the heart strings—but in the gentlest of ways.
When I gave Andrew my little interview, he chose to answer “What Romance Suspense writer would you recommend and why?”
“I just read All In by Ava Drake and it kept me on the edge of my seat… Okay, I was laying down when I read it, but Dominic went to bed and I told him I’d be in soon and I ended up staying up until midnight just because I wasn;t going to put the dang book down. Now for me, that’s a really good book. What I liked was the way the romance and the suspence were integrated. It didn;t feel as though you were alternating between the two. The care and concern was evidenced during the suspence and that kept both parts of the story moving forward.”

Carlisle police officer Dwayne knows what Robin is doing the moment he lays eyes on the young man at Bronco’s club. But he doesn’t know that, like him, Robin also comes from a family who cast him out for being gay, or that he’s still lugging around the pain of that rejection. Robin leaves the club, and soon after Dwayne decides to as well—and is close by when things between Robin and his client turn violent.
When Dwayne finds out Robin is the victim of a scam that lost him his apartment, he can’t leave Robin to fend for himself on the streets. Despite Dwayne’s offer of help and even opening up his home, it’s hard for Robin to trust anything good. The friendship between them grows, and just as the two men start warming up to each other, Robin’s sister passes away, naming Robin to care for her son. Worse yet, their pasts creep back in to tear down the family and sense of belonging both of them long for.
Will their fledgling romance dissipate like fog in the sun before it has a chance to burn bright?

Fish Out of Water: Book Two
They must work together to stop a psychopath—and save each other.
Two months ago Jackson Rivers got shot while trying to save Ellery Cramer’s life. Not only is Jackson still suffering from his wounds, the triggerman remains at large—and the body count is mounting.
Jackson and Ellery have been trying to track down Tim Owens since Jackson got out of the hospital, but Owens’s time as a member of the department makes the DA reluctant to turn over any stones. When Owens starts going after people Jackson knows, Ellery’s instincts hit red alert. Hurt in a scuffle with drug-dealing squatters and trying damned hard not to grieve for a childhood spent in hell, Jackson is weak and vulnerable when Owens strikes.
Jackson gets away, but the fallout from the encounter might kill him. It’s not doing Ellery any favors either. When a police detective is abducted—and Jackson and Ellery hold the key to finding her—Ellery finds out exactly what he’s made of. He’s not the corporate shark who believes in winning at all costs; he’s the frightened lover trying to keep the man he cares for from self-destructing in his own valor.

Previous book in the series:
Fish Out of Water: Book One
PI Jackson Rivers grew up on the mean streets of Del Paso Heights—and he doesn’t trust cops, even though he was one. When the man he thinks of as his brother is accused of killing a police officer in an obviously doctored crime, Jackson will move heaven and earth to keep Kaden and his family safe.
Defense attorney Ellery Cramer grew up with the proverbial silver spoon in his mouth, but that hasn’t stopped him from crushing on street-smart, swaggering Jackson Rivers for the past six years. But when Jackson asks for his help defending Kaden Cameron, Ellery is out of his depth—and not just with guarded, prickly Jackson. Kaden wasn’t just framed, he was framed by crooked cops, and the conspiracy goes higher than Ellery dares reach—and deep into Jackson’s troubled past.
Both men are soon enmeshed in the mystery of who killed the cop in the minimart, and engaged in a race against time to clear Kaden’s name. But when the mystery is solved and the bullets stop flying, they’ll have to deal with their personal complications… and an attraction that’s spiraled out of control.
