A phenomenon - a romance set at sea in the age of fighting sail by an author who knows her background intimately. - Joan Druett, award-winning maritime historian and author of the bestseller Island of the Lost: Shipwrecked at the Edge of the World A romantic adventure from the days of wooden ships and iron men, Captain Blackwells Prize is a story of honor, duty, social class and the bond of sensual love. A small, audacious British frigate does battle against a large but ungainly Spanish ship. British Captain James Blackwell intercepts the Spanish La Trinidad, outmaneuvers and outguns the treasure ship and boards her. Fighting alongside the Spanish captain, sword in hand, is a beautiful woman. The battle is quickly over. The Spanish captain is killed in the fray and his ship damaged beyond repair. Its survivors and treasure are taken aboard the British ship, Inconstant. Captain Blackwells Prize features sword fights and sea battles alongside the manners, ideas, and prejudices of men and women from the time of Nelson and Napoleon.
