I’m so excited to announce that the new Shades of Gray Civil War Serial Trilogy will be released this June!
First released in 2008, Shades of Gray was so popular that I decided to use the “year that was Covid” to re-write and expand the book into three volumes. There are lots of new chapters and even some new characters!
The Release schedule is:
- Duty Bound (Vol 1): June 1
- Honor Bound (Vol 2): June 8
- Glory Bound (Vol 3): June 15
- Complete Civil War Trilogy: June 29
The 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 for free.
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.
Honor and conviction clash with loyalty and love in this epic Civil War novel that pits brother against brother. 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.
Some review quotes from the original Shades of Gray:
“My house is a mess, my sink is piled high with dishes and my husband ate watermelon for dinner because I could not put down Shades of Gray. Could. Not. Put. Down. Honestly, this book completely captivated me and left me emotionally drained. I loved it!!!”
“Wonderful, fabulous book! I seldom reflect back on a book, but this one has haunted me since I finished it at 2 a.m.”
“Lost a lot of sleeping reading this one. Too good to put down! Made me laugh. Made me cry. Awesome book!”
“I loved this novel. Still crying, but I laughed just as much as I cried.”
“If someone said I could only ever have one book for the rest of my life either of these [Shades of Gray or Noble Cause] would be my pick. Thank you.”
“I can’t remember having such a heavy heart and crying so much since reading Gone with the Wind. Thank you!”
“Loved. Loved. Needs to be made into a movie.”
“I’m not usually one for Civil War era books, but I’ve got to say you really got me on this one. I LOVE it!”
“I was completely lost and spellbound by the realistic story. Without hesitation I must say it now ranks equally with Gone With The Wind.”
