My Heroes of Alaska


This month I ask all of you to read my blog and sign up for my newsletter.  I’ll be giving away two autographed books to the two best replies.   Please look for the  S.A.S.E  section, so you can receive a free book plate signed by me.  Keep checking back for more surprises throughout the month.


         In a mere couple of days my second book THE FIREFIGHTER’S CINDERELLA comes out as an October pick.  It’s the sequel to my first book, A DAUGHTER’S DISCOVERY, found in the novella entitled A MOTHER’S WEDDING DAY. 

I personally like to call these books my HEROES OF ALASKA SERIES.  Another book in the series is due out next year. 

         THE FIREFIGHTER’S CINDERELLA features C.J. Powell, the twin brother of Ranger Jake Powell from A DAUGHTER’S DISCOVERY. 

          Captain C.J. Powell of the San Francisco Fire Department, the ruggedly handsome man who has broken many women’s hearts, is trying to escape the past he left in Alaska years earlier.   

          It’s been a year since his best friend and fellow firefighter Tim McGuiness died from cancer.  During a marathon set up to honor Tim’s memory, C.J. helps the other firefighters cut off racing tags from the runners crossing the finish line.    

          One runner crosses the finish line who looks vaguely familiar and collapses in his arms.  He rushes her to triage where he learns that the beautiful woman he’s caring for is none other than the one girl he could never have, Natasha Bennington.  She loved his deceased best friend Tim without ever expecting love from him in return.  Instead of being the heavier set woman C.J. remembers, she’s turned into a slim swan.    

          The sparks fly between these two friends who were friends of Tim’s. Now they unite and find out they really were meant for each other. Only Natasha’s work as a Pro-bono attorney has become dangerous.  The people she’s trying to protect are working for a dangerous drug cartel ring leader named Mendez who’s  making threats against her life. 

          Now C.J. must take Natasha and their new found love up into the wilds of Alaska until Mendez can be caught.   Can their love survive ?  Or will they fall prey to the dangers lurking in Alaska?  Find out in this exciting read. 

I’ve loved writing this book.  The elements of the Cinderella story are all here as Natasha becomes the beauty that she always was on the inside, making this such an exciting part of the novel.  I hope you fall in love with C.J. and Natasha’s story just like I have.

    I loved Firefighter’s Cinderella! My wife is the person in our house that reads romances and comments on them, on a whim I decided to pick this one up to read it. I was surprised at how enjoyable it was to read. The book is full of excitement, suspense, romance and characters that you really like. If your husband doesn’t read romance novels, you should share this one with him. My wife loved it as well. Can’t wait until her next book comes out.

    I’ve read it and loved it. What I really liked was it wasn’t all mushy and gushy. It had a great storyline with plenty of suspense. This is a book that I couldn’t put down because I had to find out how it would end, and it didn’t let me down. I would definitely recommend this book to all my friends. I’m looking forward to your next book Dom.

    Dear Dene:

    I can’t tell you how much it means to a writer to have someone love your book. I had so much fun writing the suspense into the story line, and I’m thrilled that you found it fascinating.

    It is a privilege and honor to have you for a fan.


  6. Dominique, I love a Cinderella/makeover stories and it sounds like FIREFIGHTER’S CINDERELLA has lots of conflict and romance. I’m looking forward to reading it!

    Ms. Burton
    I just want to say “thank you” again for autograph copy of your 2nd book. You have shown the same brilliance as your mother. Looking forward to your next book (Cole’s story). I have always loved all your mother’s books and with a lot of luck obtained them all. With your two added to my book shelf, I can now say both you and your mother have become one of my favorite authoresses. I would appreciate it if you could pass on my “thanks” to your mother Rebecca Burton/Winters).
    Thank you both once again. One of your many readers,
    Bina Ballard

    Frank / You’ve got a budding leaywr on your hands. I’d recommend NOT outlining. KISS Keep it simple. If you let the kids get you started having to *detail* every caveat, you’ll never get any novell writing done; you’ll be spending the rest of your life drafting legal documents At least your kids didn’t ask for seconds! My oldest boy, when he was two found that if he asked for seconds, he’d get it. So, at *every* house, he’d ask for seconds. 99% of the time, he got it. When he was in about 5th grade, and he got a lot taller and looked less *cute*, he started getting turned down. Life is cruel.And you ask, what does this have to do with your point? not much.

  10. Good to see a talent at work. I can’t match that.

  11. Hmmm, lekkere wentelteefjes, ik maakte er ook toen de kinderen klein waren… Hier spreekt men van "pain perdu" (de Franse grens is dichtbij)= verloren brood, omdat er resten van oud brood gebruikt kunnen worden. In de Vlaamse kookboeken noemt men het 'gewonnen brood'.Leuk, dat lapje met het sentiment van thuis.Fijne paasdagen.

  12. Querida NinaSou uma pessoa bem diversifica, penso que não incorporo como único o papel de terapeuta, Assim sendo, como no blog, na minha vida pessoal interesso-me por vários assuntos e troco sobre vários temas. Daí minha curiosidade de saber como no virtual as pessoas me percebem.bjs
