Try on a backup first.

You could do a s&r regex, minimal match - in code view
(As long as the new paragraphs haven't got a class - if they have becomes more complicated)
search '([a-z]) </p>## <p>' replace with '\1 ' (without quotes)

notice the search has three spaces, and the replace has 1 space
also the two # should both be replaced with a copied carriage-return / linefeed characters (select and copy a blank line in codeview, appears like a highlighted space)

If the lines don't end in spaces you can remove the space before the '</p>' in the search term.
I also do a similar one, which does lines that end in a comma.

Hope this is understandable.
