Taiga is finally back in her beloved Bayou Oaks Mansion in Crooked Bayou (Fairview Heights, Twin Towns), after spending 6 months at APYR in Appaloosa Plains, having been unfairly charged with vandalism. But the joy of coming home is spoilt by Derek’s disappearance… She refuses to admit he’s probably dead, but after a terrible vision of his bloody inert body, her whole world falls apart.
What will happen between her and Loki? Will she finally agree to marry the stranger who she’s promised to? Will she and Rowan find their mother? And what about Derek? Is he really gone forever?
