    I have to be honest, I haven't read a fiction book in a long time. The reason I was interested to read this book was because I myself wanted to venture into fiction writing. Having authored two business books, I feel fiction writing is much harder as it requires a great deal of imagination. Elizabeth has done a wonderful job writing this book. This book was very easy to read, I finished it pretty quickly and was keen on knowing what happens next in the story. The characters were well chosen and so was the setting. This is not just a simple love story, it has a soul. The only suggestion I have for Elizabeth is to have names for the chapters but it didn't take anything away from the story, which was pretty solid.

    A little frustrated with the hero's actions about 3/4 in, and was a little sad to see that neither Cera's nor Jake's pasts played as big of a part as I'd anticipated, but overall, a solid 4/5 Stars. Full review to (maybe) follow.

    Cera’s Place is up and running from the getgo and right away it was obvious that this was not the typical historical romance with a knight in shiny armor and a damsel in distress in need of rescue. For a historical romance it has unusual strong female characters and a dominant suspense part. I was eager to discover where this story would lead me, instantly I liked Cera and I never was good at resisting scarred, handsome characters like Jake, yet because of the leading suspense part I wondered how much space was left for the development of the romance between Cera and Jake as the story is only 186 pages long. As a successful saloon owner Cera stands her ground in a world dominated by men, she is fierce, bold, caring, loyal to her friends and has a strong sense of justice. She lives her life on her own terms, when she finds out that the town’s villain is kidnapping Chinese girls to sell to local brothels she vows to bring him to justice, but her sense of justice puts her and her friends in serious danger. In the midst of all these troubles Jake Tanner walks into her saloon and immediately she is drawn to him like a moth to a flame.Jake stole my heart the moment I met him. Though the war is over Jake is still a soldier through and through and he is on a mission to fulfill a promise he made to a friend and fellow soldier who died on the battlefield. His mission brings him to Cera’s Place and she stirs up feelings he thought were long dead. He is compassionate, loyal, protective and persistent in everything he does. I loved the combination of skills, persistence, vulnerability and emotions in Jake. He is very much the tormented hero, still dealing with the pain of his past, trying to pick up his life again. It is hard not to like him!Both Cera and Jake are strong-willed, fiercely independent, and no strangers to loss and grief. Hurt by the man she once loved Cera guards her heart and keeps all men at bay. She tries to do the same with Jake but he is too persistent and isn’t going anywhere. He slowly gains her trust and bit by bit she falls in love with him but she is scared to give her heart to another man. Jake has lost his wife and child, he is scarred by the war physically and mentally and that frightens him but Cera captivates him, he wants her but is afraid he is not good enough for her. Jake and Cera are appealing characters you can easily relate to and their romantic struggle and scalding attraction tugged at my heartstrings, I so wanted to see them both happy. Elizabeth McKenna’s writing immersed me deeper and deeper into the story and she delivers a beautiful, intriguing tale. Cera’s employees are all strong women, all very different but scarred by their pasts yet they are all determined to create a better life for themselves. As secondary characters they entertain, add humor and give this story more layers and a certain depth without stealing the spotlight from Jake and Cera. Still Jake stands his ground between all these women as a true hero! The only problem I have with Cera’s Place is that the suspense part dominated the story and although it is well developed and has a good pace I felt the romance part was snowed under. For me the romance moved too fast at times, I felt that I missed certain scenes/parts of Jake and Cera’s romance. As a romance reader I would have loved to see that part more deepened and more equal to the suspense plotline. But I loved Jake and Cera’s emotional journey for justice and love, they touched my heart and I was rooting for them. Elizabeth McKenna delivered a powerful and captivating read with Cera’s Place. Supported by a striking and witty cast of characters Cera’s Place is entertaining, it is a thrilling read that kept me riveted to my chair from start till finish!

    One word: CharmingI peeked at this book before I actually read it, and I read the first several pages. I really wanted to drop the book I was reading at the time (Deadlocked) and get into this book. The beginning grabbed me right up in it's arms and didn't want to put me down. Of course I have a reading order list and I had to wait but the opening left me breathless and really wanting to get back to it soon.Once I actually got to start it I couldn't put it down. I got emotionally involved with all of the characters in the book from the moment each hit the scene. The way that Elizabeth describes her characters makes you either love them or hate them right away.The book starts with a jarring scene involving Jake a former Civil War Captain who's features have been hardened by the toubles of war, but have still left him with kind eyes and a sexy as hell cowboy persona. Then leads the reader from there into a very charming and sometimes downright seizing mixture of a Historical Love Story/ Western.Cera is a saloon owner and she is a proud and sturdy woman with a softness inside for the weak and helpless. You can't help but love her and all of the workers in her saloon that she brings in to get them away from the hard life of the streets. She runs the saloon with a smile on her face and a Derringer in her pocket.The love story between Jake and Cera is gradual leading up to some pretty awesome love scenes that left me tingling and wanting more. The action in the book revolves around the extremely detestable Biggs, a man with no morals that is selling Chinese women into prostitution. Cera decides she has to put an end to this mans reign of terror over the city. You soon find out in the book what Cera wants she damn well gets and by her owns means and determination not by passing the job of to any man. She has the help of her loyal team and family behind her and of course the sexy Jake. All in all this book was well worth the read. I will recomend this one to many people for a quick and great read. I have one complaint about this one...it was too short! Elizabeth McKenna is a new author that really does deserve some more attention.

    Set in San Francisco in 1849 Cera's Place is where men go for a hot meal, whiskey and a game of cards. You want anything more you can take your business somewhere else. Prostitution is not allowed. Cera offers women honest work and a chance to redeem themselves.The employees at Cera's place are her family and she will go to great lengths to protect them. Even places women at not allowed. So when a young Chinese woman bursts threw the door telling of murder, kidnapping and the selling of young girls, Cera vows to save every girl she can and put those responsible for this outrage behind bars or worse.Jake Tanner, a soldier from the Civil War, enters Cera's Place as a man on a mission. He comes with many scars inside and out but thinks things will be better if he can just fulfill a promise he made to his dying friend. Meeting Cera he is immediately taken by her strength and beauty. He wants to stay on and help her in her fight but she has been burned by a man before and is wary of Jake's intentions. She may need to swallow her pride and admit she needs him in more ways than one.Dollycas's ThoughtsAn awesome debut! A love story that will carry you back to a very exciting time. It turned out to be really different from what I was expecting.Cera is strong, outspoken, opinionated, all very uncommon for woman of this era. She only has her saloon because she has a male partner. She is a lady all about justice repeatedly putting herself and others in danger.Jake comes to town just in time to save Cera and himself. They both need each other. First they need to right the wrongs of others and then they can concentrate on healing each other.All the characters were very well developed and believable. The story was paced well and descriptions sent vivid pictures to my mind.This story is a romance but it is wrapped in a very suspenseful mystery. There are a few steamy moments too. A perfect story for me. I was unable to put it down. For a debut novel it is definitely worth 5 stars! I am looking to reading more by this author.

    The book is set in the American Frontier, a time period that I find myself reading a lot more lately. Didn't realize how interesting it is and how much stuff really went on around that. Then again that's what happens when you stick around in British time periods but I'm getting away from the story. The story is about Cera Cassidy, who runs the only respectable saloon in the area. Cera is a very strong woman and won't let anyone into her life besides her girls and the two men in her life whom she has known for many years. That is until Jake Tanner saunters into her saloon and she can't help but be lured to this mysterious Captain from the Civil War. The plot is a simple one with a lot of twists and turns though they are not hard to keep up with. The one thing that you have to remember is that this book pretty much takes place in a matter of, I'd say about a week maybe even up to two. Because of that it doesn't make the story all the believable. Especially since it takes so long for mail to travel and they reach places really quickly. It is solid though, Cassidy is a hard nosed Irish Woman, who has been scorned and wants to help people. This time instead of helping out another saloon girl, she wants to try to figure out why Chinese girls are disappearing and how crimes against Chinese are being covered up.Not a small task, but with her new love Jake helping her it makes it easier. Jake's tormented by his Civil War past and just like Cera's scorned past stops them from time to time to get to what they both want. Jake and Cera have nice chemistry and play well off of each other leading to some nice love scenes between the two after their walls are finally broken down.The history in the novel is pretty generic. American West, Saloon life and the such. The biggest part though is the plight of Chinese slavery of girls in California. At the end of the novel there is a nice prologue which includes the law prohibiting slavery of the Chinese.

    I chose to read this book as I enjoy historical romances and so when the author contacted me I graciously accepted. This book takes place just after the Civil War in the 1800s in America. I immediately was hooked into the time and place. Cera and her crew were a very diverse group and were all working together to make their lives positive. Jake happens upon Cera’s Place while looking for a friend’s daughter. He is mesmerized by Cera and what she has going on at her place.I did like Cera’s character. She was tough and independent during a time when most women had men to take care of them. She provides a place for other women to gain their strength to move on. When Jake arrives at the saloon, she notices him but is skeptical. Jake is immediately taken by her beauty, and begins to stick around. He finds himself in the right place at the wrong time and tries to convince Cera that he can help. I liked Jake’s character. He was strong, but cautious when it came to dealing with Cera.The romance and trials that happened at Cera’s Place and in the town were my favorite. The pages turned quickly. Once the crew ended up fleeing town to protect themselves, I thought the story lost a little bit of its umph, but overall it was a good story.If you like historical romances, this is a great story in a newer time. The author does not over do the story with too many historical time references. There are the horses and wagons, guns, soldiers, and a good old romance.

    My Review: Here we go, this book had me in the beginning with it's characters and storyline, until some of the scenes went just a little to far in the sexual content. At the very beginning it was not that bad and it actually grabbed my attention due to the finish content of it. The character Jake Tanner has a harsh scared demeanor about him. The main character, Cera is one lady that I wouldn't want to mess with. But given the time, place and situations within the book you get to know why she is the way she is. The many other characters within these pages are some that you want to hug and some slap.There is heart ache, mystery, love, anger, battles that you will have to turn the page to understand them all. Author Elizabeth McKenna's writing has you all tangled up with in her fictional but so life like situations that you will have a hard time putting down. I am not going any further as to the book, do not want to give it away. As I said above the sexual content of the book is one thing that I could have done with out. Some of the parts were way to over done for me as to the story. So I will leave it up to you to read for yourself and make your own decision. But for my review, I am giving this book a Breath of Life rating of:Four Clock Rating!!!Disclosure: I received this book in exchange for my review. The opinions are mine. And your opinion may differ.

    Review on Cera’s PlaceI give Cera’s Place 5 stars*****!Set in the 1800’s during the gold rush in California where women were whores or ladies, Cera Cassidy set high standards for herself and any women who needs help by giving them honest work in her saloon. Not a man’s Saloon, but her saloon, Cera’s Place. Where men come to play cards get a decent hot meal with whiskey. If they wanted something else, they had to go elsewhere.Enter the wondering ex soldier Jake Tanner from the civil war, who is in search of a long lost daughter of another soldier who saved his life during the war, to give her the locket that was once her father’s. He could have just kept drifting, but an honorable gentleman that he is seeks out the girl. And finds the beautiful owner of Cera’s Place, in a bit of trouble to add to his honorableness, he cannot leave any women in trouble. Even though she can handle her own with a shotgun and wayward men, she cannot handle a big shot who can bribe the local cops who turn the other way when they steal oriental girls and sell them off to local brothels and kill people who stand in the way. Cera is hell bent on finding a way to stop Mr. Biggs. Along the way, she finds she is attracted to the drifter who insist on helping her and the saloon family. I highly enjoyed reading the adventure of Jake and Cera.

    This isn't the typical historical romance I read, but it was definitely just as enjoyable! The reason this one was so different was because Cera, the main character, was the owner of a saloon and she was a hard-headed female instead of the normal damsel in distress girls that are normally in historical romances. It was also cool how this story took on a crime/mystery genre when Care was trying to catch the bad guys in town who were selling Chinese girls. But enough about that-- let's get on to the romance! Jake and Cera both loved and lost in the past, so when they first confronted their feelings for each other, they couldn't be more scared. Watching them open up to each other was cute, but sometimes things moved a little too fast. Whether it was a moment that appeared out of no where or someone randomly showing up to cause trouble, the story had it's moments where things went a little too fast. Since this book was so short (185 pages), the author could have developed and extended the story a little more, but it was still a sweet read. It was quick, but Cera's Place still leaves you with a nice, romantic story you can't help but get lost in.

    Elizabeth McKenna’s CERA’S PLACE is a heartfelt story of a strong woman and a man damaged by the Civil War who work together to defeat a villain preying on defenseless immigrants.This was an historical novel full of the suspense that is usually in a modern thriller/crime drama. I was a bit confused at the beginning of the book when Ms McKenna tried to give everyone’s backstory rather quickly so we could get on with the tale of the sex slave traders. However, once we got into the meat of the book I realized that despite the intermingling of the narrative, Jake and Cera did not know each other before their histories collided in Cera’s San Francisco saloon. From that point on I thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to more stories from the talented Ms McKenna.Please see my complete review at http://mrsconditreadsbooks.com/index.... (March 23, 2012)

    Elizabeth McKennaA sexy war hero meets a gorgeous Irish saloon owner with a shotgun in his face! Now that a great beginning to a romance story!Cera Cassidy was raised in a mining with her Irish folks. Her mom died, she stepped in to help her dad, her dad was shot in front of her, Cera shot back & killed the killer and raised herself after that. Cera is one tough woman with a gooey heart for all hard luck folks, but mostly women. She opened Cera's Place with her partner/piano player Isaac. She has a Wall of Dreams in her saloon, but of other folk's dreams. She has surrounded herself with a new & chosen family, with sassy Ginger, Gypsy Sonya, Quiet Mary Beth, Trusty Li, Energetic Sadie, Trickster Johnny & Dependable Isaac. Cera's Place has great food with beer or whiskey, honest games & absolutely no prostitution for her girls! The sign hanging over her door says it all, " Mind Your Manners Or Leave! Thank You!"Jake Turner is a man who has been living 4 years tormented with nightmares of his dead wife, child & friend Daniel. Since the end of the Civil War, he has been traveling the US to find Daniel's daughter, Sadie Freedom, to give her a locket because it was a dying wish of brave Daniel. Jake may have a scar across half his face, but to say he has a heart of gold, is an under statement! Jake finds himself outside Cera's Place to hopefully find Sadie!San Francisco is a town with corruptions as it's unseen middle name with all it's prostitution, dirty cops, gangs, slavery & Gold Rush fever. Cera's Place is a haven, so when Sadie rushes in with a hurt & scared Chinese girl, Hu, Cera is angered & shocked, but not surprised, at the story of murder, kidnapping & Chinese girls sold into brothels & Samuel Biggs is at the center of it all. She hides Sadie & Hu, so when Jake comes in looking for Sadie, he meets her shotgun in his face! Not a great begin, but all misunderstands are pushed aside when he pulls out the locket & tells his story. Everyone is shocked & touched with his 4 year journey to find Sadie & she remembers her mom's locket, so Jake becomes welcome & all guns stored.With Biggs making trouble & searching for Sadie & Hu, Jake becomes involved, after saving Sadie from harm & then beat to a pulp himself. Cera has always felt that undeniable sexual pull between them, but she has been burned by a man in her past & not ready to do it again. Jake feels the first touch of desire since his wife, when he looks at Cera, but she is a hard nut to crack. Biggs & his goons cause up a dust of trouble and soon Sadie, Hu, Cera & Jake are in Biggs' crosshairs. With all these problem amuck, Jake & Cera have some amazing & super hot passionate kisses, caresses and have some down & dirty moves. As Sassy Ginger meddles, Cera's Irish temper getting her into trouble, much needed kisses, posses out in force, a corrupt cop, steamy desires unleashed, the dangerous Chinese Tong afoot, girls awaiting rescue & a honest police chief help & hurt, Jake & Cera feverish pursuit of justice & hopefully a love affair that turns to happily ever after! Will Cera embrace her own dreams? Can Jake put his many demons to rest? Will Cera's Place survive this nasty battle with Biggs? When will these 2 realize they are stronger together, than apart? Does Boggs get is just dessert?This is the 2nd Elizabeth McKenna book and it was better than the first! I have read & not enjoyed a few Western historical romance, but this one I loved, with the kooky & outcast members of Cera's Place family. Cera drew all the women in crisis to her, embraces them all with her opened heart & helped them make their dreams come true because it was easier than getting her dreams stomped on & crushed. Jake is one of my favorite kind of heros, wounded inside & out. The Civil War devastated his life and left him as a shell & if he hadn't promise Daniel Freedom (I love this black man's name) to find Sadie, he would of gotten himself killed. Ms. McKenna surrounded her hero & heroine with a bickering, nosey, loving cast of unique & original characters to help & sometimes shoved her hero & heroine. She wrote each characters their own hidden story & I hope to read a story for each one of them. Ms. McKenna gifted me with a welcoming Saloon, with great tasty food, flowing drink, sassy & witty girls, fair gambling, amazing piano playing & I will kick back my boots & join in with the Cera gang again! This unusual romance with a western flair get my score of 4 fingers up & 10 toes & Ms. McKenna I a awaiting for another installment!

    GENRE: Historical, Western, Romance fictionSETTING: 19th century post Civil War San FranciscoCENTRAL FEMALE CHARACTER: She runs a clean and successful, no whores, no nonsense saloon in one of the worse parts of town imaginable. The food is good. The gambling tables are full. The whiskey soothes the palate. Always providing an opportunity to give any woman a life with dignity, she is not afraid to stand up to anyone. Even the most dangerous and notorious citizen of them all.CENTRAL MALE CHARACTER: Haunted by the past, he comes into town wearing the jacket of a Union Army captain. He has searched the past (4) years for the object of a promise made to one of his fellow soldiers. Though his reception is cold, he proceeds “uninvited” into the world of a beautiful woman with kissable lips and a derringer on her hips. WHAT I LIKED: Cela’s Place has a nice balance of character dialogue and descriptive language. L’amour is expressive (ahhh sigh). Like with most romance books, the author starts slow but once the action picks up, you can hardly put the book down. Relationships that did not exist in the beginning are well established by the end.WHAT I DID NOT LIKE: The brief mentioning of a man reaching into his pants as pleasure filled his hands did not really add anything to the book. Accents were inconsistent. One minute you thought the person spoke with an everyday common folk accent and the next minute that same person talked like Festus’ western drawl. TYPICAL ROMANCE STUFF:Love’s misunderstandings and resistance;Villain aka the trouble-maker aka the bad guy;Small amount of colorful language;Moderate sexual content to include (10) breasts, (6) nipple, (6) tongue, (2) flick’n (3) hardness, (1) cupping, (3) caressing and over (10) kiss’n. Penetration yes (2). Well, you get the picture. This book gets (4) vrooms out of (5) Jeep Diva blog vroomshttp://www.thejeepdiva.com/NOTE:Slavery still exists today through HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

    2.5 StarsThe Civil War took a lot out of Union soldier Jake Tanner. He lost a dear friend on the battlefield. And his wife and child succumbed to illness while he was gone. The only reason he hasn't given up on life is to keep a promise to find his friend's daughter. But when he finally does locate the girl, he is set on a path to truly living again for the first time in years.The girl in question works in a San Francisco saloon, run by the fiery Cera. Jake is smitten with the tough and savvy businesswoman right away. But she is gun shy, after her last failed relationship. She also has her hands full with a handful of dastardly men in the city who are kidnapping Chinese girls and forcing them into slavery. She takes the cause onto herself, which quickly puts her in danger. Cera and Jake must work together to bring down the slavers before the slavers can get to them.Cera is a tough and capable woman with a difficult past, but she wards off Jake's advances almost a little too adamantly. Meanwhile, Jake is smitten with her at the speed of light. And they are in Love in just days. (You know this is a personal peeve of mine.) Jake had the potential to be a tortured hero, but he didn't entirely pull it off. Instead, when he makes his big sacrifice for "Cera's own good," it feels abrupt and unnatural. In fact, a lot of their relationship felt abrupt... and its progression felt a little stilted. It went from "I don't like you," to "My body may want you, but I don't," to "I really enjoy sleeping with you," to "I love you" and so on, in blocky increments. It's not a bad story, but I guess I just didn't feel very invested in the characters and I didn't really connect with the romance. Not the best fit for me. 2 1/2 stars.*ARC provided by author for review

    I was really looking forward to this book, but felt let down. I would give it a 2 1/2 because I like strong, independent women characters (but can't).... it wasn't worth the full 3 stars though.I am not one for romance books and felt it was cheesy and the other characters were very stereotypical and nonsensical.Could have had a lot more substance and strength in story, was a good idea.Disappointed!

    I enjoyed this book. The characters were very believable and the story moved along at a nice pace. The only thing I didn't like was I felt Jake told Cera he loved her way too soon. She kept calling him a stranger and he was in love with her already. It just didn't gel very well. Other than that I enjoyed the story very much and I look forward to Ms. McKenna's next story.

    This is what I get for choosing a book for its cover.Plot - interesting and reasonably enjoyable.Writing - immature.Characters - static.Sex scenes - unnecessary.Bad guy - not scary despite attempts to draw him as gritty.

    San Francisco was still part f the Wild West in the 1870's Cera a saloon owner saw the injustice of the prostitution of young Chinese girls. Along with a former civil war hero she fought to change the prostitution, making it happen.

    This was a good read but a bit unrealistic. Even if the scenario Cera finds herself in were to be believable there would have had to be more depth to the story. The main male character was not developed very much and so seemed likeable but shallow.
