After so many years of keeping her past a secret, she inadvertently spills it all, landing her estranged mother on her doorstep. To top it off she breaks her own rules and agrees to go on a date with a client, after he refuses to take NO for an answer.

When Aquarian is critically injured by a drunk driver, everything in Tierra's world is turned upside down, leaving her out of control for the first time since she was ten years old.
