About the Author
Andrew grew up in western Michigan with a father who loved to tell stories and a mother who loved to read them. Since then he has lived throughout the country and traveled throughout the world, visiting every continent except Africa and Antarctica. Andrew adores meeting people from cowboys, to executives, artists, police officers and everyone in between.  He has a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and works in information systems for a large corporation.
Andrew’s hobbies include collecting antiques, gardening, and leaving his dirty dishes anywhere but in the sink (particularly when writing).  He also hates laundry, cooking, and cleaning. Luckily he has a husband who does that for him so he can keep writing.   He considers himself blessed with an accepting family, fantastic friends, and the world’s most supportive and loving partner. Andrew currently lives in beautiful, historic Carlisle, Pennsylvania.

Jordan Erichsohn suspects something is rotten about his boss, Judge Crawford. Unfortunately he has nowhere to turn and doubts anyone will believe his claims—least of all the handsome deputy, Pierre Ravelle, who has been assigned to protect the judge, as he's been receiving the threatening letters. The judge has a long reach, and if he finds out Jordan’s turned on him, he might impede Jordan adopting his son, Jeremiah.
 When Jordan can no longer stay silent, he gathers his courage and tells Pierre what he knows. To his surprise and relief, Pierre believes him, and Jordan finds an ally… and maybe more. Pierre vows to do what it takes to protect Jordan and Jeremiah and see justice done. He’s willing to fight for the man he’s growing to love and the family he’s starting to think of as his own. But Crawford is a powerful and dangerous enemy, and he’s not above ripping apart everything Jordan and Pierre are trying to build in order to save himself….

Wonderful Start to a Spinoff Series!
While I enjoyed the last Carlisle Cop book, the series as a whole was beginning to stagnate for me, so I hoped that Fire and Flint would revitalize it, not realizing that this title is actually the first in a spinoff series.  However, the “vitalize” part is accurate – this was a great read, full of new scenarios and perspectives!  
Also, please note that this is absolutely a standalone novel – while there are mentions of characters from the other series, they are few and explained well so that you don’t feel like you missed something.
Jordan is working his tail off, keeping his nose down, and doing what he needs to in order to finalize the adoption of the little boy he fell in love with at their first meeting with no complications.  Unfortunately, the judge he is working for is the largest complication available, and Jordan is stuck between a rock and a hard place.
Pierre is a cop who loves his job, and he’s less than pleased to be assigned to babysit a judge during work hours.  However, he finds Jordan captivating, and it doesn’t take long for him to decide that this assignment definitely has its perks.
The plot on this story is quite unique, and is all the more alluring for that wonderful freshness!  There is a love story, a mystery aspect, and plenty of twists and turns to keep your attention focused.  I admit I read the entire thing in just a couple of hours (yes, I read ridiculously fast) and then immediately started it over.  It was that good!
The main characters’ interactions and relationship building developed more organically than the standard formulaic connect the dots, which I always appreciate in a book.  The character growth is strong on both sides, and the attraction between the men is hot.  Sexy times are sweet, and seemed to be more ‘meant to be’ than ‘must have him right this second,’ even with the urgency of the first time together.  The romantic in me really enjoyed that aspect.
I am rating this at 4.5 stars which, as you may know if you’re familiar with my rating system, is a rarity for me to grant.  However, this book has definitely earned it as well as my sincere recommendation to anyone looking for a completely fresh story.  You’ll not regret picking this one up!
