Cuba Undercover
by Linda Bond
Genre: Romantic Suspense

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.

     “You sound like a man in love.”
     “I am in love with Havana, with the city, the people, and our culture.”
     Our  culture. She didn’t feel the same connection. Never had. One thing had always been standing in the way. “But you hate the government.”
     His body tensed, and he took a step to the side, putting distance between them. “Yes, Rebecca.” That condescending tone had returned. “You know how I feel about the government.”
     For so many of their people, the problem came down to one man and his family, the hate so strong Cuban Americans could see nothing else. Her own mother had forbidden her to even say his name in the house. “Is this a Castro thing?” As if she had to ask. Antonio had the hate, and he had it bad. It had been tattooed all over his face from the moment she’d met him.
     He stomped away, putting even more distance between them. “It’s a Communist thing.” He gestured toward the city. “First the government takes away religion.” Turning back to face her, a fire ignited in his dark eyes. “When you do that, you strip people of hope and separate them from their morals and values.” Crossing his arms, he stared across the bay. “Then you shred every iota of what makes a person unique, under the pretense of making everyone equal, but when you do that you take away drive and desire. You create a complacent society, weak from dependence, unable to dream and unwilling to raise a hand toward change.”
     Jesus, he spoke like a politician, if a notably scruffy one with his goatee and strands of his crazy rock-and-roll-style hair blowing in the hot Havana breeze. Despite the fact that his words were resonating deep within her, the reporter in her automatically played the devil’s advocate. “Do you think you speak for everyone here in Cuba, or are you just speaking on behalf of the angry Cuban Americans back in Florida?”
     He twisted toward her, nailing her to the space where she stood with a stare as hot as glue from a gun. She knew she’d touched a nerve, and she didn’t know why she felt the urge to push him like this. Honestly, this was not a man she wanted to piss off. Like it or not, Antonio was her life raft back to America. And after witnessing him with his family, she was actually starting to like him. At the very least, she admired him. Not every man would be so steadfast in his devotion to his family, risking life and limb to care for and liberate them.
     Then there was the way he looked at her at times, with a heated gaze that made her insides quiver. And whenever they touched…
