Marissa Harrington is about to get married to Matthew Marconi. There's only one problem: she doesn't love him. In a fateful moment, she decides to give up everything and heads down to the Caribbean. But Marissa is about to get more than she ever bargained for as she enters a world filled with conspiracies, triple crosses and possible murder. As Marissa makes her way through the mysteries of this island paradise, danger seems to be lurking around every corner. And to top it all off, she just may have found her Mr. Right, except there's a hitch: she may not live long enough to find out.  

"I'm no art critic,but where did you find this horrible and disgusting picture?The man doesn't look human, and he has red eyes. And why are all these people dancing around him?"
"Ah, I see. I found the painting quite some time ago.You are correct in your thinking;although I did not hear you say it.It is the devil.He walked over to Marissa,placing an arm around her shoulder, and pointing with his glass to the painting. "The people portrayed here are doing 'The Devil's Dance.'"
"Well, it certainly sends chills up and down my spine. Do we have to keep it in the house?It seems evil."
"Ah, it only looks evil from where you stand.Sooner or later we all dance for the devil."

Reader Reviews for "The Devil's Dance"

Reviewed by Patti Bengen 11/13/2007
"A riveting romantic thriller, "The Devil's Dance," by novelist Patti Ann Bengen, is the story of Marissa Harrington, whose decision not to marry her deceitful fiancee and subsequent trip down to the Caribbean for a little R&R, finds herself abruptly plunged into a world of drug deals, conspiracies, triple crosses, and even murder. It seems a little unfair that she just may have finally discovered 'Mr. Right,' but not live long enough to know for certain. A superbly crafted suspense novel of almost unrelenting action, "The Devil's Dance" is exceptionally well written from beginning to end. Very highly recomended reading. Attention Hollywood -- "The Devil's Dance" is the stuff from which blockbuster movies are made!"
By Midwest Book Review (Oregon, WI USA)

Two Handsome men, a tropical island, and death . . .
"Marissa Harrington is attracted to Matthew Marconi, he is handsome, obviously wealthy and in love with her. He wants to make her his wife; however, things have become mundane.They eat at the same restaurant, at the same table on each date. He takes long business trips and never tells her where he is going. He gave her a phone number to call if she needs him, she was to leave a message, and he will call her back. During one such trip, she decided she needs a vacation, a chance to have some fun, sun, excitement and the opportunity to think through their relationship. From the moment she arrived in the tropical paradise her life is in danger. She meets Andre and he swept her off her feet. She knew she was more than a little in love with him. Nevertheless, life is never that simple.
"The Devil's Dance" by Patti Ann Bengen is a spectacular, suspense-filled romance. I could not put this book down. I stayed up all night reading. The plot is breathtaking, moving swiftly from one riveting scene to another. The characters are extremely well developed. Marissa is almost naive, trusting those she should not. She is a damsel in distress, and yet a courageous heroine. Matthew gives the appearance of being perfect husband material on the surface, but if you look close enough, you can see the evil lurking beneath the surace. Andre is a hunk! All of the characters are mutlifaceted, there is more to them than meets the eye. The supporting characters add a versatile element to this book. I found myself suspicious of Lorelei and Pedro, suspecting they were more than they appeared. They add that important element of keeping the reader guessing. I think Warren would make a wonderful main character in a sequel. I highly recommend "The Devil's Dance," to fans of romance and mystery. You will not be disappointed."
Stephanie Rollins, ""

"A blisteringly hot romantic thriller, "The Devil's Dance" is dark, mysterious and sexy. The characters are fascinating, the scenes are exquisitely shaped and the writing is top-notch."
-Wanda Campbell, author of "First Sunday in October"

"Exhilarating from start to finish, Patti Ann Bengen's new novel is a great romantic thriller with all the trimmings: characters you want to have affairs with, boiling-hot lust, lots of intrigue and just a hint of murder all wrapped up in a sexy setting.!"
-J. Rye Erixon, "The Strip Mall" and "Angel's Milk"

"The Devil's Dance" is a cleverly-crafted romantic suspense thriller that reminds you of the best of those great Hitchcock films - in fact it reads like a Hollywood movie. A brilliant, fast-paced, stylish read." -Janette Oners, author of "Man With a Vengeance"
