Called the “greatest love story ever told” when it was first released in 2008, Shades of Gray has been expanded and improved in this new three-book series that has dozens of new chapters and introduces new characters. Fall in love again and discover the fine line between friends and enemies in this emotional Civil War love story.
Shades of Gray Civil War Serial Trilogy consists of three books: Duty Bound, Honor Bound, and Glory Bound, as well as an Epilogue that you can request from the author.
Honor and conviction clash with loyalty and love in this epic Civil War novel that pits brother against brother. This is a classic tale of courage, honor, and enduring love that has been praised by both men and women—from professors of history to avid romance readers.
Author Jessica James uniquely blends elements of romantic and historical fiction in this deeply personal and poignant tale that, according to one reviewer, “transcends the pages to settle in the very marrow of the reader's bones.”
Duty Bound: Takes readers across the rolling hills of Virginia in a page-turning tale of action and adventure as a Union spy spars with a renowned Confederate cavalry commander. Gallantry and chivalry are put to the test when Colonel Alexander Hunter discovers that Andrea Evans is not only the woman he promised his dying brother he would protect, but is the Union spy he has vowed to his men he would destroy.
Honor Bound: This volume follows Union Spy Andrea Evans as she finds herself recuperating from an injury in the home of her enemy, Colonel Alexander Hunter. Readers will discover the fine line between friends and enemies when the lives of these two tenacious foes cross by the fates of war and their destinies become entwined forever.
Glory Bound: The series culminates in this emotional final volume that reflects the sacrifices of both sides and proves there can be no bond stronger than that which unites enemies. Immortal love, whence it flows, can never die.
