My Love Lies Bleeding/Hearts At Stake Edit
At the start of the book, Lucy is at a field party with Solange, who will become a vampire on her sixteenth birthday. Nicholas and Logan Drake (two of Solange's seven older brothers) pull up and tell them both of the girls to get in after vampires surround the field party, after Solange. Nicholas drives away before Lucy can get in. This is where you first see Lucy and Nicholas's strained relationship.
When Lucy goes to the Drake compound where Nicholas tells her to leave. She is about to get into her car, when Nicholas suddenly grabs and kisses her before telling her that there are people on the compound and pushing her into the farm house and then most of the Drakes emerge to start fighting the intruders, who are soon revealed as Helios Ra (vampire hunters) They keep one alive for questioning on the wishes of Liam Drake. His name is Kieran Black; the next morning when Lucy goes into the living area with her breakfast, Kieran is still tied up and convices her to give him a sip of her tea. He then uses a powder called 'Hypnos' and makes her untie him.
When the Drakes wake up, Nicholas is mad and Liam and Conner are gathering the remaning Hypnos's while the Drakes go back to bed. Nicholas stays behind and tries to use his "vamp mojo" (as Lucy puts it) and then kisses her. Their eyes remain open before they flutter closed and then he goes to bed. When all the Drakes were in bed and it was about lunch Lucy goes into town to buy supplies for 'if she ever saw Kirean again'. After she got her supplies (including a bowie knife and nose plugs) she was getting into her car when Lucy saw Kirean. The two argued and she punched him in the nose, taking his book.
Once she returned to the Drake compound where Solange and Nicholas are awake and worried. Lucy asks Nicholas why he is awake and he simply says "because the house smelled wrong" before going back up to bed. Lucy and Solange then arrange a meeting with Kieran to give him his book back. Unfortunately, Nicholas finds out and grabs them, taking them back to the farm ignoring their protests.
London Drake then arrives and tells her cousin Solange that she has been summoned by Madame Veronique. Madam Veroniqe is the oldest Drake and matriarch of the Drake clan. London hates Lucy and says "that has to stay here". Lucy puts on a bravardo but really she is disappointed. London then tells them that lady Natasha has also summoned Solange.

I didn't know what to do with this Nicholas. It felt like we were about to have a moment. We'd never really had a moment. Okay, we'd had that kiss - make that two kisses. But they weren't real, were they? (Pg. 103, My Love Lies Bleeding)
