Fresh FIction Box Not To Miss

Jenn Burke | Title Challenge: ALL FIRED UP

May 20, 2021

ALL FIRED UP is the first book in my new Ashes & Dust series, which is a spin-off set in my Not Dead Yet universe. It follows Evan Fournier, a.k.a. Vamp Junior from Not Dead Yet, as he settles into his own as a private investigator and a vampire in paranormal Toronto. When his partner PIs, Wes and Hudson, are called away to handle a family emergency, Evan is left in charge of the agency with the firm instruction that he is not to take on any paranormal cases. But when a longtime friend comes to him for help, how can he say no? Suddenly he finds himself undercover at a spa retreat that looks like a perfect getaway for stressed-out paranormals—except people are returning home without their magic. Why? And what does the mysterious (and kind of sexy) Red have to do with it?

Join Evan as he works to determine who’s behind the latest upheaval in Toronto’s paranormal community. The story continues in House on Fire (out November 2021) and Out of the Ashes (out 2022).


A is for Anika, Evan’s doctor and friend, who comes to him for help.

L is for London, where Wes and Hudson have gone to deal with a family emergency.

L is for lying, which Evan has to do when he goes undercover.


F is for firefighter…sexy, sexy firefighter.

I is for the investigation Evan isn’t supposed to be doing, but he can’t say no when paranormals turn up missing their magic.

R is for Red. He’s more than he seems.

E is for Evan, who’s done a lot of growing as a person.

D is for dead, which is what is happening to some paranormals who attend this retreat. But what’s causing it?


U is for the unexpected connection Evan finds with someone at the retreat.

P is for the paranormal community Evan is determined to protect, even if it costs him everything.

Ashes and Dust Book 1

All Fired Up

Once bitten. Twice burned. Forever bonded.

Don’t miss this riveting and romantic spin-off series from Jenn Burke, author of Not Dead Yet.

Paranormals are dying. All over the city, with no explanation and only one thing in common: their magic is missing.

Vampire and private investigator Evan Fournier isn’t supposed to be taking on paranormal cases, but when the murderer hits close to home, he agrees to look into it. The last thing he expects is to become a target himself–and then to become irrevocably bonded to the man who just tried to kill him.

With his memory gone and his soul bonded to a stranger, former firefighter Colin Zhang wants to be anywhere else. He doesn’t have a damn clue why he just tried to kill Evan, and he didn’t even know about magic until just now. The sooner he can get back to his real life, the better.

But every time either of them tries to leave, pure agony stops them short. Forced to work with Evan or suffer the consequences, Colin must excavate the secrets buried in his missing memories while battling two rising threats: the conspiracy behind the murder, and his mutual attraction to the bond mate he never wanted.
