Honor and conviction clash with loyalty and love in this sweeping Civil War tale that pits brother against brother. The Shades of Gray Civil War Serial Trilogy consists of three books: Duty Bound, Honor Bound, and Glory Bound.
Colonel Alexander Hunter would rather die than see the Union set foot on his beloved Virginia soil. And while he holds the line against Northern aggression with legendary skill, a treacherous boy on horseback always thwarts his offensives. His allegiance is tested when the traitor he unmasks is the woman he once swore to his brother he would protect.
Andrea Monroe would do anything to make her country whole again. A Southern-born Union spy, she's dedicated to undermining the arrogant Confederate officer. When she's taken captive and badly injured, Andrea is shocked to wake up in the legendary home of her nemesis, rather than prison.
As prisoner and captor spend time together, their mutual loyalty grows into unexpected devotion. But as fresh conflicts arise, they again, cross swords.
Can two adversaries reach beyond the battle lines to unite in the midst war?
The Shades of Gray Civil War Serial Trilogy is a powerful exploration into a defining era of American history. If you like emotional journeys, rich Southern backdrops, and epic stories of devotion, then you'll adore Jessica James's captivating Civil War adventure.
Shades of Gray, first published in 2008, was later published as Noble Cause, with a new happily-ever-after ending.
