Meet N. Jade Gray

Cavalry scout Judson Stone needs to warn Lawrence, Kansas, of the impending threat of Quantrill and his raiders. Shot and left for dead, he awakes in a strange new time and place. Guilt riddles him over his failed mission as the days pass and he struggles to find a way back to his own time –and overcome growing feelings for a woman who doesn't trust him. 

Sadie Winters has her hands full juggling a full-time job, a start-up business, and the chore of keeping tabs on her mischievous grandfather. She doesn't need the further complication of caring for the stranger Gramps brought home. Little by little, the mystery surrounding Judson is revealed, and she throws herself into helping him find his way back to his own time. But how can she send him back, knowing she's fallen in love? 


N. Jade Gray grew up on a farm in Oklahoma with one sister and three brothers. She began reading romance novels in high school and was hooked. In an attempt to entertain her friends she began writing stories. The biggest hurdle she had to overcome with her writing was sharing her stories. Her former writing groups, the Wichita and Regional Authors and Low Country Romance Writer’s, helped with her confidence and shook the needed pom pom’s to get her motivated for publication. She is also a former member of the Romance Writers of America.

She met her husband, Nathan, while attending college and has two grown sons, Blake and Mason. Not really knowing what she wanted to do when she grew up, she’s held various jobs in the accounting and legal fields. She lives in Kansas with her husband, rescue cats Meera and Mango, and one spoiled dog-named Fabio. Yes, she helped named the dog. She loves to hear her husband calling for his four-legged companion.

ANGI: What’s your favorite cartoon character?

JADE: My animation buddy would be Winnie-the-Pooh. No trip to Walt Disney World would be complete without a hug from Pooh.

ANGI: Daffy Duck or Donald Duck?
JADE: Rabbit season, Duck season. Going to go with the slobbering Daffy.

ANGI: What’s your favorite thing about your book’s hero?
JADE: Only one thing? 😊  His name. I woke up with his name in my head several years ago and he didn’t let me rest until his story was told. Judson Levi Stone.

ANGI: High Heels or Hiking Boots?
JADE: Hiking Boots! But, truthfully, can make a fool of myself in either tripping over my own feet.

ANGI: Got a favorite song? What makes it special?
JADE: I have many, but In the Air by Phil Collins ranks pretty high. Great memories of my younger days with friends when we “nailed” the drum solo!

ANGI: What’s your perfect day?
JADE: Can I answer April 25th like the movie Miss Congeniality? Ha
A cool spring or fall day where mosquitos and bugs don’t exist. I would take a hike and sit by a waterfall or brook and listen to the soothing water.

ANGI: Wild Flower or Roses?
JADE: I love orange or peachy colored Roses.

ANGI: Favorite inspiration or Quote?
JADE: I like this Quote from John Muir: “Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you…while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”

JADE: Loving my Fringe boots!

I love reading and watching Christmas stories. Yes, I’m kind of addicted to Hallmark channel. No judging.  😊

My Work in Progress is a Christmas story about my heroine going home to help a family member and finding herself connecting with her secret high school crush. It is still in the works and the draft Title is Tangled in Tinsel. 

Mitchell Reeves is in trouble. Someone is sabotaging his ranch, cattle are missing, his sister is testing her wings, and his quarrel with a neighboring rancher has heated to boiling. Adding a beautiful woman who claims to be from the future couldn't come at a worse time.

Computer programmer Rachel Morgan understands machines, but fails with the opposite sex. When a dog plays chicken with her car, her bad week becomes worse when she wakes to find herself in the past—in a very hunky, very delusional cowboy’s bed. 

Time spent in Mitchell’s company causes an unexpected glitch in Rachel’s determination to get home. Love. Found in the most startling place and time. Could she go home, if she had the chance, without knowing his true feelings?

When unwanted attention from another man turns to kidnapping, Rachel is torn between wishing she were home… and risking it all for the love of a cowboy.


JADE is giving away a signed copy of her recently released book Raider of Her Heart.

JADE WANTS TO KNOW:    You just won the Lotto. What country or vacation plans would you make? 


  1. beach
    bn100candg at hotmail dot com

    1. Any specific beach or any ol' one would do? :)

  2. I would go to St. Croix, Finland, France and England.


  3. I can see you've put some thought into this. ha
    All sound like great places to visit? Or you've won the Lotto, you aren't coming back? ha

  4. I would move back to the bay area as we now live in Iowa as that is where my husband lived when we got married and I had to leave my adult kids as they didn't want to come with me. My husband still works as a underground pipeliner and out here there are many farmers who want it installed or are building other barns and need propane piped there or new neighborhoods going up so my husband runs a crew and he would have to find that type of work out in Ca so now that I won the lottery he won't have to work anymore and he can help me now instead of having someone from the outside come in the house part time and do it as I am disabled. Wow that would be nice to win huh! Peggy Clayton ptclayton2@aol.com

  5. Peggy, that would be awesome for you and your husband. This is why my husband and I play the lotto every once in awhile - retirement from the day job.
