Book Feature: Duty Bound by Jessica James (99c until June 10)

When I first heard of Jessica James's new book, Duty Bound, it got me curious. And how could it not, with a review like this:
“It is a book that I think could have the impact of a ‘Gone With the Wind.” – J. Noyalas, Assistant Professor of History about Shades of Gray
Anyway, without further ado, here's the lowdown on this decorated romance author's latest release...



Duty Bound (Shades of Grey Serial Trilogy Vol. 1)


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.

When Andrea falls into Hunter’s hands in enemy territory, he must make the difficult choice to honor the vow to his brother—or continue to stand for the convictions he holds dear.

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.”

The Shades of Gray Civil War Serial Trilogy is made up of three Volumes: Duty Bound, Honor Bound and Glory Bound.

What they said about Shades of Gray:


“The best Civil War fiction book since Cold Mountain.” – J. Bibb, SCV, Trimble Camp 1836

“Andrea and Alex will surely take the place in my heart of Rhett and Scarlett as the perfect Civil War fictional love story!” – A. Deyarmin, Reviewer

Get this book for 99c until June 10

A sweet romance with a touch of family drama.
