For the first time in his life, Roque Blackstone heard the music of love when he caught Ritz Keller trespassing on his father's land—spying on him as he swam naked in a sheltered pool underneath the live oaks. Despite their families' long-standing and bitter feud, Ritz captured his heart. But although they shared one night of passion, their love could have no future.

Ritz paid an incredible price for loving Roque—with the loss of her family's respect, the life of her unborn child and a loveless marriage to another man. Now, more than ten years later, Ritz is forced to admit that she still loves Roque. But will the tragedies of their past deny them the future they were destined to share?

This is one of those books that you can't put down, but yet don't want to get to the end. A fairy tale romance that makes you feel like crying in one chapter and celebrating in the next. Never really knowing if the two characters would ever get to be together or not. Wonderful detail! I LOVED IT!

With the stark reality of life on the Texas-Mexico border as background, touching on the story of impoverished Mexicans who cross illegally into the United States, and the slum-like colonias, Ann Major paints a tale of feuding families, enduring love, and the struggle to live according to one's convictions. Ann Major captures the reader from the first page and doesn't let go. Everything separates her heroes, Ritz Keller and Roque Blackstone. Rumors and accusations pit them against each other, make them mistrust their own feelings. Promises and misunderstandings separate them, push them into loveless marriages. Mistakes and obstinacy alienate them from each other. This novel, however, is not just about the trials and tribulations of an appealing heroine and a compelling hero, or the feud between two ranching families. It is the story of South Texas as well, and events that could only happen there are intertwined with the fates of Ritz and Roque. The fast-paced narrative and sensual prose will enthrall the reader. The characters, however minor, stand out and make the world of Marry a Man Who Will Dance unforgettable.

When they first met, Roque Moya Blackstone teased fourteen year old Ritz Keller Evans calling her princess, telling her that her friend was prettier, and taking her horse from her. The encounter ends in an incident with his father hurting him and her father warning her to stop acting the whore and stay away from that evil family.

Rogue¿s half brother Caleb and Ritz become friends and dance together in public. Her drunken brother Steve and her boyfriend, both filled with liquor, go crazy and chase after their enemy. In an ensuing car crash, Caleb dies. Separately Steve also crashes and is left a paraplegic. Not long afterward Ritz saves Roque from a beating and takes him to Mexico. They make love, but he is married. Her father rejects a pregnant Ritz as a whore and eventually she loses their baby from working too hard to support herself. Ten years later, a bitter Roque still blames Ritz for the baby¿s death.

MARRY A MAN WHO WILL DANCE is a modern day southwest West Side Story starring a half-Mexican-half American and an American whose fathers hate each other. Ritz is an intrepid individual whose morality shines through the novel in spite of overwhelming pressure by her parents, the townsfolk, and her beloved to break. Her only oases as the eye of the storm over the years are a kind grandmother and Caleb. The deep character study requires the audience to accept some improbable pivotal points that ring untrue for the characters hurting an insightful story line.
