Synopsis

READER ALERT: The expanded version of SHADES OF GRAY is here! If you're a fan of GONE WITH THE WIND, fall in love again with this epic Civil War Serial Trilogy: SHADES OF GRAY (Duty Bound, Honor Bound, Glory Bound)

Called the “greatest love story ever told” when it was first released in 2008, Shades of Gray has been expanded at the request of readers to include dozens of new chapters in this complete trilogy set.

The original title has more than 1,000 5-STAR REVIEWS like this:

“Rivals Gone With the Wind as my favorite novel of all time. I can think of no better way to describe it.” – Amazon reviewer

“Five stars does not do this book justice as it is well beyond that rating for me. It is so well written and the characters have such depth that it brought me to tears many times.” – Terri D

“It is a book that I think could have the impact of a Gone With the Wind.” –   Jonathan A. Noyalas, Former Assistant Professor of History and Director for Civil War Studies, Lord Fairfax Community College

Honor and conviction clash with loyalty and love in this poignant Civil War tale that pits brother against brother. Readers will discover the fine line between friends and enemies when the lives of two tenacious foes cross by the fates of war and their destinies become entwined forever. 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.” Winner of numerous national awards, James has received critical acclaim for this page-turning story of courage, honor, and enduring love.

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.
