Love the creative story and suspense.

I really enjoyed this book. It has a very good story and the first sex scene is particularly atmospheric and hot. The rest is a bit vanilla for my taste but still entertaining and a worthwhile read

GOLDEN BLUSH RECOMMENDED READ: "The Triaxen is a wonderful suspense story that will definitely keep you on your toes. The twists and turns the author has, both within the story and the relationship between Krevan and Ancelin, kept me up most of the night, once I started reading, to the point my husband finally told me to get to bed. I fell in love with Krevan as I was reading and loved the world Ms. Lake created. The story is a combination of the old-style lawless western we read about within a sci-fi world. Krevan reminded me of an old-style cowboy/lawman who wants to be left alone, certainly not wanting to be around people, much less looking for a mate. Circumstances throw Krevan and Ancelin together in close quarters and Krevan realizes she is his bond mate. Most women that come to Verrian are there as mail-order brides, though Ancelin had not done her research to realize she should have had a protector with her. So much of this story could take place in today’s society and, in some instances, be torn from the news. The Triaxen is Ms. Lake’s debut novel and I hope that this story is not the last one about the Triaxen people. I am looking forward to reading more from this author." -- Amazon Nymph, Literary Nymphs Reviews

"Ciara Lake gives us a new world and a new outlook on human and humanoid relationships. You meet a new species, one that is every bit as predatory as some of the most wild werewolves, yet the Trianens have managed to civilize themselves into a fairly normal and for the most part benign race. They are faster, stronger, and have some very acute senses, but that is all a part of their background. The mate and bond with a true mate, and only in this does nature hold sway. But Krevan is different. He has been incarcerated on the Hellgate Prison Planet where no one but the strongest survives. It has changes him in fundamental ways, causing him to revert back to a more primitive behavior. Intelligent not withstanding, he is more dangerous than anyone on Verrian, and most people know it and give him a wide berth. He suspects something is up when he finds himself desiring to protect the fragile young woman who has dropped into his lap, and soon, there is not turning back. The Triaxen is a story of greed, murder, and flight, but it also brings two people who have suffered greatly for someone else's gain together where they can find love. When all gets going and the action heats up, the tale spins faster and absorbs the reader in the lives of this pair and those they come in contact with on and off Verrian. Ciara Lake's The Triaxen is a gem of a book, for those who love a well told story and want a world of imagination to go along. It will definitely remain on my "Keeper Shelf" and be read many more times. I suggest if you like the futuristic style of romance, you purchase a copy today, and if you haven't tried this genre yet, this is an excellent introduction to the futuristic genre of romance." -- Rose, Romance at Heart

"Ancelin is starting over on the remote new colony of Verrian. But in her haste to escape Earth and the tragedy that befell her there she doesn’t do enough homework about this new lawless land she is heading to. But, when she contracted to live in Krevan’s old house it might have just been the first break she has gotten. When Krevan takes one look at her he is intrigued and drawn to her Anvelin can’t believe the changes in the weather or the harshness of the Verrian landscape, or the men. When she sees Krevan she is immediately drawn to him, though he doesn’t even know all there is to know about his race or his past. But, will she find her future in Krevan’s arms? The Triaxen is a unique look into another world and this challenges that will bring to people. It also mixes in a potentially deadly race and intrigue in the fact that those who were after Ancelin’s family have followed her to Verrian. I love how both Ancelin and Krevan grow and adapt to each other and their love as time goes by. I was intrigued by not only the premise of the story but the story itself. If you love a good sci-fi read than you will want to add The Triaxen to your bookshelf (or reader)." -- Tanya, Joyfully Reviewed

Excerpt

STORY EXCERPT

 

“Mr. Vallex, how much farther is the property?”            

“We have about three more hours of driving left. Silos is about four hours from my property. The information I provided indicated the property is remote and rural. The property is out in the middle of nowhere. There’s the town of Coti. It’s a smaller settlement closer to the property. There isn’t much in that town. Let me know when you want to go back to Earth.” Krevan glanced over at Ancelin as if to gauge her reaction. They resumed their semi-tolerable silence to ride for another hour until the darkening sky lit up with an outstanding lightning demonstration. Booms of thunder shook the vehicle as it sped across the gravel and dirt road.

“Oh, wow, was that thunder?” Ancelin’s voice sounded strained. She gazed up and out the front window.

“Yes, it’s only getting started. The storm has arrived a lot sooner than it was expected. Welcome to the storms on Verrian. They’re powerful and not for the faint of heart. The weather here is an authentic Verrian experience. Hopefully, we’ll get home before the roads and fields get too muddy and slick.” Krevan looked over at Ancelin, his eyes mirrored back at her, reflecting in the low light oddly.

Ancelin gasped. “You’re not an Earth human or any humanoid I’m familiar with. What are you? Your eyes reflect like…like some of the carnivorous predators on Earth. What humanoid species are you?” Ancelin tried to steady her trembling hands.

Krevan smiled, and the lightning flashed, illuminating his striking face. “I’m a Triaxen humanoid. I’m sorry my eyes alarm you. I promise not to bite.” Krevan watched her with his eerie, inhuman eyes. His full smile framed his beautiful white teeth. They looked surprisingly sharp, especially his canines. His smile wasn’t sincere.

“A Triaxen, which would explain your height and size. I’m sorry for reacting so rudely. I’ve never met a Triaxen humanoid before. I’ve never seen a humanoid’s eyes reflect like yours. It surprised me.” Ancelin attempted to apologize for her overreaction, clasping her hands together to continue to try to keep them from shaking.

“You mean like an animal, a carnivorous predator? Isn’t that what you compared me to, Ms. Trever?” Glaring at her, his annoyance was obvious. “My ancestors were deadly predators. I inherited many useful and lethal abilities. However, I won’t harm you unless you harm me. I can be civilized even though I lived five years of my life on the uncivilized Hellgate Prison Planet. I thought you should know that before you hear it from someone else. Most people on Verrian are wary of me. Not many people survive Hellgate Prison. My being a venomous male Triaxen also makes people uneasy.” They resumed their uncomfortable silence as the thunder boomed, and then the rain cut loose from the sky and poured down in torrents.

“Can you see where you’re going?”

Krevan didn’t respond to her question. Ancelin hugged the side of her door. Any closer to the door or farther from him and she would be sitting outside on the vehicle’s running board.

With a sudden jolt, their vehicle left the dirt road as Krevan cut off across the pasture. The jolt bumped Ancelin away from the door and closer to Krevan. Their legs touched. Ancelin anxiously yanked her leg back. “Is this the way to the house?” Her question broke their heavy silence.

“Yes, both of the houses are in this direction. There’s no road to the property. We’re almost there. Your house is within sight of mine. Since it’s raining so hard, I’m taking us into my garage. We can go inside and wait the rain out before I take you to your house. I have no desire to get drenched tonight. Your house doesn’t have a garage or port. I hope waiting at my house is all right with you. The rain could last awhile.”

Krevan looked over at her quiet, stiff form as he explained his plan. Ancelin made no reply. The rain came down so hard it was difficult to see out the windows.

Krevan drove the vehicle confidently, as if he could see through the onslaught of rain and darkness. “You scared of me, little girl? Krevan’s voice was hushed. “I told you to go back to Earth. You’re on this untamed world with a Hellgate ex-con as your only neighbor. Alone, with a stranger, a Triaxen male nearly three times your size. That’s gotta suck for you.” Redirecting his attention out the front window, he seemed not to expect any response.

“Mr. Vallex, I appreciate my precarious situation. I’m grateful for your considerate warnings.” Ancelin had her own degree of sarcasm. “I’m here now. I would be grateful if you would…I don’t know…not be so negative and give up trying to scare me back to Earth. If you’re going to be big and bad, let me know now and get the good stuff out of the way.” Despite her bold speech, Ancelin continued to hug the side of the door.

“All right, Ms. Trever. I’m not sure what your definition of ‘the good stuff’ is,” Krevan responded as their vehicle approached a large, modern structure. It was a remarkable house built out in the middle of an isolated landscape. It was reminiscent of the luxurious homes that lined the streets of many of Earth’s affluent neighborhoods.

“Remember, Ancelin.” Krevan stressed her first name. He seemed to want to make sure her attention focused on him as he stopped the vehicle in front of four garage doorways. “I didn’t knowingly sign up for a female neighbor. Your arrival has caught me off guard. In the past, my being caught off guard has proven to be fatal to others. I’m willing to make the best of this uncomfortable situation.

 

ADULT EXCERPT

 

“I could make love to you for hours. Don’t you feel it?” Krevan gently tugged on her hair, pulling her head back, so he could look into her eyes. “I don’t feel the need to be rough with you while having sex. My instincts tell me you’re mine, and that lessens those urges. I’ve been waiting a long time to feel this.” Tenderly, he kissed her forehead and cheeks. “Ancelin, I don’t want to scare you. Don’t fight me, okay, and everything will be all right. You don’t have to be afraid of my teeth if I develop fangs. Soon they won’t hurt you. You’re mine. As soon as I release in you, I won’t be venomous to you ever again. I promise. I know I’m going to release with you. I can feel the need riding me.” Carefully taking one of her breasts into his mouth, he sucked and kissed it.

Ancelin pressed herself closer to him. She had heard what he said, but none of it made sense or mattered. Too immersed in the erotic sensations, she didn’t care what he was telling her.

“Tell me you want me.” Krevan ran his hands over her body, pausing to caress the mound of her damp pussy. His finger ran inside of her tightness. She was wet, warm, tight, and she shuddered in reaction.

“I want you,” Ancelin replied with a shaky voice.

Lightly, he pushed her shoulders back onto the bed and rose up over her. “Spread your legs wider so I can put most of my weight onto the bed.” Krevan coached.

Ancelin complied, wrapping herself around him, kissing his neck and chest. She purred with anticipation. “Ancelin, you make me feel so good, and you’re so welcoming. I’ve never experienced such welcome,” he whispered in her ear. “I’m going to mate and bond you to me.”

Ancelin was too out of her mind to care what he was saying. She stroked his back in response to his seductive whispers. “I’m sorry.” Krevan pushed inside her tight channel. Ancelin whimpered as he shoved his way in. Yet she continued to hug him, kiss him as he pushed in past her barrier. Raising her hips, she met his. Her virginal canal widened at his massive intrusion. Ancelin moaned.

“You’re so sweet and innocent. I’m sorry it’s uncomfortable at first.” Krevan’s voice was harsh. His embedded cock seemed to grow even more. “You’re my mate.” Krevan kissed her more deeply with even less restraint. Gasping as he fully seated himself inside of her, she hugged him tighter. For several seconds, Krevan did not move. He looked down into her eyes. “I’ve hurt you?” Krevan’s voice was rough and apologetic. “I don’t like hurting you.”

 “No, I’m fine. It feels amazing. Don’t stop. I like what we’re doing.” Tenderly, Ancelin pushed the hair out of his eyes and moved against him. Her vaginal muscles squeezed him.

Her tender moves triggered a loss in his tightly leashed control. Immediately he reacted to her naive actions. He pulled out of her, and slammed back in.

Ancelin moaned, encouraging him with her touches and sounds. The plumbed filos ridges on his cock stimulated her clit. Nearly fainting with the unbearable pleasure, she clung to him. A wave of pleasure washed over her body, vibrating all of her muscles simultaneously. This could not be a mere orgasm. Ancelin screamed in response, and his body answered hers. She shuddered all over. Every muscle in her body trembled and her pussy quaked. So high from what had transpired, she barely noticed that Krevan continued to pound into her. Her whole body relaxed to receive him. When she fully relaxed, the remarkable sensations became more manageable. The way she felt, he could do anything to her and she wouldn’t care. All she wanted was to feel him. Everything he did gave her glorious satisfaction. It was evident that he was frantic with need, too.

His hands roamed all over her. He squeezed her breasts and touched her everywhere. Wrapping his arms around her, he held her closer, slightly lifting her back off the bed. Pulling her into his arms, he rammed his incredible-sized cock inside of her.

Again, she could feel the ridges of his cock caress her sensitive spot. Ancelin nearly passed out with the bliss of it. Releasing her, he pushed himself up and held himself over her as he continued to pound into her pussy.
