When FBI Agent Higgins accepts the assignment to escort a dying young woman to her high school prom, he fully intends to be home by midnight. Tate is no Romeo. Neither is he tall, dark, or debonair. He’s the workhorse on the psychic Deuces Wild Team, not a mind reader, and this is nothing but a one-night job for the USMC scout sniper. Until he sees the young woman dancing up high on a water tower. What a sight…
The prom is a fake and the water tower is the only refuge where her mother can’t reach Winslow. Stricken with a rare cancer, her life is nearly over. There will be no handsome lover in her future. No wedding. No babies. Her world has been reduced to the countdown of days that she accepted years ago. Until an unexpected stranger appears out of nowhere and asks her to—dance.
