In The Commodore's Hands by Mary Nichols
Commodore John Drymore's mission is clear: sail to France, rescue Comte Giradet from prison and bring him and his daughter back to England safely. But Lisette Giradet defies the Commodore at every turn and soon gets under his skin more deeply than the bullet in his arm.
Desperate to rescue her brother from the guillotine, Lisette smuggles herself back on board the ship. With her life in jeopardy, she's given no choice – she must assume the role of the Commodore's wife!
