A romantic adventure from the days of wooden ships and iron men, Captain Blackwell's Prize is a story of honor, duty, social class, and the bond of sexual love. A small audacious British frigate does battle against a large but ungainly Spanish ship.
British Captain Blackwell intercepts the Spanish La Trinidad and outmaneuvers and outguns the treasure ship, then 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 Blackwell's Prize features sword fights and sea battles alongside the manners, ideas, and prejudices of men and women from the time of Nelson and Napoleon.
