When Sir Gideon Trevithick returns to Cornwall after a horrific imprisonment in India he stumbles upon a beaten and frightened girl. Gideon feels an affinity for the waif's suffering and offers help.

Little does he realise the girl is Lady Charis Weston, England's greatest heiress. Charis has managed to escape her brutal stepbrothers, who tried to force her to marry a wastrel, but the only way she can remain safe is with Gideon's protection.

They elope to Jersey, where Charis begins to fall in love with the handsome hero who rescued her, unaware of his dark secrets. And for Gideon, overwhelming passion defeats his demons as he finds rapture in Charis's arms.

          Comments about Captive of Sin:

          Anna Campbell's done it again! As always her novels are steamy and passionate; what I love about Captive of Sin (like most of her novels) is that I can escape to a different place and time - where an attraction is coaxed and courted rather than obvious and instant. On occasion the plot becomes a litle predictable however perhaps that i because one can so easily identify with her characters? In any case, another brilliant read for lonely housewives and romantics.

          For all the romantics you imagine being swept off their feet by someone tall dark and handsome! Very predictable, but enjoyable romance. For those who like books such as Mills and Boon

                Characters had more depth than I anticipated, more emotionally charged and a really great read. Some of the plot was typical (rich heiress running away from horrible step brothers), but other parts were unexpected.
                There was nothing that I didnt like about this novel. Was a great cheap buy.

                I was born in Brisbane, Australia, and grew up on an avocado farm with views of Moreton Bay and Stradbroke Island. As a result, my ideal setting ever since has involved lots of water—even if it’s just a large bathtub with me lolling around in it.

                The other element in my ideal setting is lots and lots of books. I was a kid who spent her childhood with her nose buried between the pages of a book. To me, the worlds I read about were at least as real and ten times as exciting as anything that happened to me in Redland Bay. I still think one of life’s finest pleasures is picking up a great book and just losing myself in it for however long I take to finish it.

                Being such an avid reader naturally morphed into wanting to do what these wonderful writers did. My mother very proudly kept my grade two composition book, in which I penned a heartfelt wish to become the new Enid Blyton. At least you can say I had an early sense of vocation.

                When I was 8, my mother was so desperate to shut me up—in between reading, I used to talk a lot—that she gave me a Mills & Boon romance. That was back in the days when you were lucky to get a kiss at the end, rather tame by today’s standards. But I was immediately hooked. The vivid emotion and the fact that a woman is so central to the story made these books precious to me. I still feel that way about a good romance.
