Blackwell's Adventures Book 2

The repercussions of a court martial and the ill-will of powerful men at the Admiralty pursue Royal Navy captain James Blackwell into the Pacific, where danger lurks around every coral reef. Even if Captain Blackwell and Mercedes survive the venture into the world of early nineteenth century exploration, can they emerge unchanged with their love intact? The mission to the Great South Sea will test their loyalties and strength, and define the characters of Captain Blackwell and his lady in Blackwell’s Paradise.


Praise for Blackwell's Paradise

“Blackwell and Mercedes, individually and together, are well drawn and fascinating characters on both the familiar surroundings of a Royal Navy ship and the more exotic environs of the Sandwich Islands. Great fun.”

Rick Spilman, author of The Shantyman, Hell Around the Horn, and Bloody Rain

“…it is hard for authors to come up with something new and unique that grabs the readers attention. V. E. Ulett achieves that in Blackwell’s Paradise.”  David Hayes, Historic Naval Fiction

“…likable characters that make you want to read on and quickly turn the pages. The steady unraveling of the plot…is genuinely exciting. This second book in her series also works as a standalone. It’s a real pleasure to read.” 

Jeff Westerhoff, Historical Novels Review
