Release Date: September 25, 2011Life hasn't been exactly kind to San Francisco saloon owner Cera Cassidy, but she has built a successful business and a family of friends. She carries the reputation of a tough woman with a big heart, along with the derringer in her skirt pocket. One summer night, she discovers that the neighborhood thug is kidnapping Chinese girls to sell to the local brothels. Outraged, Cera vows to bring him to justice, but he's not going to let anyone interfere with his livelihood.
Jake Tanner, a scarred ex-soldier haunted by his Civil War experiences, is on a mission to fulfill a friend's dying wish. The trail has brought him to Cera's door. Captivated by her Irish beauty, he is more than willing to join in her fight - if only she would let him.
