Alyxandra Harvey writes another great Drake Brother romance with Bleeding Hearts. This romance gives the reader more insight into Conner Drake and my Favorite, Lucy. Cristabel is also introduced as a love match for Connor. Cristabel is Lucy's cousin whose Dad died and her Mom's coping mechanism is alcohol. Lucy's Parents therfore, have Christabel move in with them. However, no one wants to tell her about the Vampires, Hel-Blar, or Helios-ra. Although Christa thinks Lucy's parents are way overprotective about curfew and other rules, she follows them. The story centers around the coming Blood Moon festival that vampires are gathering for and the fact that the Hel-Blar's leader Saga emerges and wants a seat on the council. Saga decides she needs some leverage for her agenda and decides to kidnap Lucy but gets Christabel instead. Connor being the hot Drake brother that he is decides to rescue her. It is during this captivity that she discovers the secrets.
Lucy and Nicholas are also central to the story which brings us many hilarious chapters from Lucy's point of view. I just love Lucy as she is sassy, fearless, and self-confident. Nicholas and Lucy are one of my favorite couple so it is a delight to see them as a part of this story. Solange is also in this story but is definitely acting weird and I can't believe the cliffhanger of this book. It will leave you going---What? No Way!!! I hate waiting for the next book in a favorite series. But with the Drake chronicles it is always worth the wait.
