His revenge will change her life forever...
Cuban-American TV reporter Rebecca Menendez's success comes from playing by the rules. When she's kidnapped by a fierce and intensely handsome man who needs her help, however, all of those rules seem pointless. Nothing could have prepared her for being taken hostage...or the irresistible reward if she complies: information about her long-thought dead father.
Antonio Vega has spent almost every day of his adult life dreaming of revenging his father's death. With his sister's life and freedom in jeopardy, Antonio isn't taking any chances. But once Rebecca and Antonio are in Cuba, they're immersed in a world of corruption, deceit, and betrayal. It's a deadly game...and there are no rules.

Uniquely crafted with unexpected twists and turns, Cuba Undercover is Rebecca Menendez’s story, whose Cuban heritage and media clout place her in prime position to throw light on the plight of Cuban citizens desperately seeking asylum in the States. But the man who kidnaps her for that reason has other shady reasons for doing so and Rebecca soon finds out this is more personal than she originally thought it had been.

‘Cuba Undercover’ is an easy, absorbing read with rather likeable characters, shedding some light on Cuban-American politics that kept me interested to the last page because of the unusual cultural context.

TV news reporter Samantha Steele is one panic attack away from losing her job. Future on the line and cameraman in tow, she follows her mentor on an exhilarating adventure vacation. When he dies while skydiving, her investigative instincts scream “murdered”, and lead her to gorgeous thrill-seeker Zack Hunter.
Zack is an undercover police officer investigating his uncle’s death through the same adventure vacation company. Samantha is a thorn in his side the moment they meet. Not only is she investigating the same case, but the emotionally wounded loner doesn’t want another partner, especially one whose goal is to splash evidence all over the evening news. But Samantha’s persistence is quite a turn-on, and Zack’s overpowering desire makes it harder for him to push her away.
When the killer turns his attention to Zack, Samantha might be the only one who can save him, forcing the anxiety-riddled correspondent to finally face her greatest fear.


A fun, fun, fun read or a murder mystery involving an unlikely trio of an undercover cop, a reporter and her cameraman, set against a breathlessly exciting backdrop of (extreme) sports. Throw in a parachute failure, sabotage of scuba equipment, tiger sharks and sultry sexual tension and voila…an explosive mix of action, plot twists and romance that really surprised me in a good way.
