Hey, guys, I've got a new book out! Huzzah! CAPTIVE OF SIN has been released which is a bit of an oxymoron, I admit! But what's an oxymoron between friends?
I'm really thrilled about this book which is a passionate, dramatic tale involving a runaway heiress, a national hero with PTSD, an elopement, a marriage of convenience, a gorgeous house on the Cornish cliffs, dastardly relatives, and lots of derring do.
Not to mention one of my favorite heroes ever in Sir Gideon Trevithick.
Publishers Weekly must have liked my lovely Gideon too. They just chose CAPTIVE OF SIN as one of their top 100 books of 2009, one of only five mass market paperbacks to make the list. How cool is that? You can find the list here: http://www.publishersweekly.com/article/CA6704595.html
Here's the blurb:
He pledged his honor to keep her safe . . .
Returning home to Cornwall after unspeakable tragedy, Sir Gideon Trevithick comes upon a defiant beauty in danger, and vows to protect her whatever the cost. He’s dismayed to discover that she’s none other than Lady Charis Weston, England’s wealthiest heiress—and that the only way to save her from the violent stepbrothers determined to steal her fortune is to wed her himself! Now Gideon must hide the dark secrets of his life from the bride he desires more with every heartbeat.
She promised to show him how to love—and desire--again . . .
Charis has heard all about Gideon, the dangerously handsome hero with the mysterious past. She’s grateful for his help, but utterly unwilling to endure a marriage of convenience—especially to a man whose touch leaves her breathless. Desperate to drive him mad with passion, she would do anything to make Gideon lose control—and fall captive to irresistible, undeniable sin.

And for the very first time, I have a book trailer. A lovely friend of mine Vanessa Barneveld made me a promo video as a surprise present. Sure beats new socks in the present department! Check it out:
Isn't that gorgeous? And SOOOO romantic!
The reviews have been great so far, including a Top Pick from Romantic Times who said, "Campbell holds readers captive with her highly intense, emotional, sizzling and dark romances. She instinctually knows how to play on her readers' fantasies to create a romantic, deep-sigh tale." You can read more reviews on my Latest News page on my website.
