“A very satisfying conclusion to the Blackwell’s Adventures series, with lusty escapades tempered with amusing side passages, lively characters and a lovely ending.” – Broos Campbell, author of the Matty Graves series

In a multigenerational saga of love, war and betrayal, Captain Blackwell and Mercedes continue their voyage in Volume III of Blackwell’s Adventures. The Blackwell family’s eventful journey from England to Hawaii, by way of the new and tempestuous nations of Brazil and Chile, provides an intimate portrait of family conflicts and loyalties in the late Georgian Age. Blackwell’s Homecoming is an evocation of the dangers and rewards of desire.

  2. This sound like it be a great book to read

  3. Sounds like a great read.

  4. I really like the book cover, the illustration, by doing so I was immediately attracted to it. I guess I knew why, when Hawaii was mentioned I was sold. Taking written journals and creating a story simply creative.

  5. Thanks all for your nice comments, and good luck in the giveaway!
