In this third book in the sexy, suspenseful The Secret Life of Amy Bensen series from New York Times bestselling author Lisa Renee Jones, we meet Amy's brother Chad — and the woman who either loves him or wants him dead.

Six years ago, Chad's hunt for a dangerous treasure turned deadly when his family home was set on fire, his parents killed. Faking his and his sister Amy's death to protect her from further retaliation, he set her up in a new life with a friend’s help, letting her believe he'd died.

But now the men who hired Chad to find the treasure have found him, imprisoning and torturing him to learn where it's hidden. A dark-haired beauty named Gia helps him escape, promising him access to his worst enemy. And as he tries to unravel the deep secrets of the past, he starts falling for her... only to discover she's not what she seems.

Unable to trust anyone, Chad focuses on only two things: protecting his sister Amy and getting revenge. Is love even possible in the midst of heartache?

✿ Excerpt ✿

I cross the room to enter the master bedroom and Gia greets me at the door, her pale skin like ivory, her dark brown hair draping her shoulders, and worry etched in the furrow of her brow. She is beautiful. She is here. She is mine, if only for now, and I have every intention of keeping her.

I kick the door shut and she takes a step backwards, giving me space I do not want. "You have to know that party is a setup. You can't show up there."

"I take it you listened in on our conversation."

"Yes. I did. Chad—"

She yelps as I grab her, rotating her to press her against the door, trapping her legs with mine. "He hacked your personnel file."

"Of course he did. I don't trust him."

I tangle rough fingers into her hair, tugging just enough to force her blue eyes to mine. "He doesn't trust you."

"Like you?"

My answer is a deep, hungry kiss. The taste of her, addictively sweet, fills my senses, stirs a craving for more. She makes me crave more. Escape. Passion. That indefinable sense of needing what only she can give me. She moans, a soft, sexy sound I feel in the tightening of my body, the burn in my limbs. My free hand caresses her hip, her waist, the curve of her breast, and I want nothing more than to be lost at sea with this woman, floating on an ocean of waves, so far away from the rest of the world we can't be found. But I have to settle for here. Now. Lost in her. With her.

Only, she's not with me. I feel it in the tentative caress of her tongue, the uncertainty and reserve of her fingers barely flexing against my chest, and I tear my mouth from hers. "I fucked up in the lobby. But Gia, in a very short time, you've gotten inside my head and under my skin in a way no one else has. You know the real me, and that's dangerous for both of us."

"I'm a part of this world now, too, and I need to understand to survive."

"You aren't. You can't be. I won't allow it."

"You can't change what already is. You think that if I'm out of your sight, I'm safe? That's a fantasy, Chad, and I'm not willing to live in a fantasy that could kill me." She balls her fingers around my shirt.

We stare at each other, the sound of our breaths mingling together, the sun starting to dim beyond the windows, like the resistance I once had to this woman. "I want your help. I even need it, but I won't lie to you anymore. You need to know that the first chance I have to make it happen, I will get you out of this."

"If I don't want to go?"

"You'll go."

She inhales and lets it out. "And never see you again."

"It has to be that way."

"If I resist?"

"Then we'll go to war," I assure her, "and I'll win."

"If you send me away, I'll go after him on my own."

I lean back, pressing my hands on the wall beside her. "That would be foolish, and you're not foolish."

"So is your thinking that you can take on something this big on your own. And don't say you have Jared. You didn't even tell him what you were hiding for six years."

"What he doesn't know can't get him killed."

"That's bullshit, Chad. They'll kill him to get to you, just like they'll kill me, or your sister. You do have to destroy them, and I don't even know how you do that."

"I'll figure it out."

"Damn you and your stubbornness," she hisses. "You're going to end up dead."

I slide my hands to her hair. "You need to stop talking. Right here, this moment, is about just that: the moment."

"This moment won't erase the facts. This is bigger than you and me. I have to be a weapon if I can be."

"But not another loss," I declare. "You give me the information. I risk myself. End of story." She opens her mouth to argue and I silence her with a kiss, and I swear I can almost taste the blood I won't let be hers, almost hear the piercing scream of my mother's agony in my head. I cup Gia's head, deepening the connection between us. Needing again. Demanding. Taking. Relieved when she goes from stiff and unyielding to wildly responsive, her tongue stroking mine, her hands sliding under my shirt, her palms soft and warm. Her touch is somehow like a calm summer breeze on a hot Texas night and at the same time it's the fire that makes it hotter.

But Gia isn't calm. She's all over me — kissing me, touching me, possessive in her own right, as if she is trying to hold onto me beyond the moment.

✿ Excerpt ✿

But tonight, my God, it felt like anything could happen, and everything should happen. Maybe that's what years of longing could do to a woman. She tried to concentrate on her mission — turning the tables on him, putting one over on the guys and their bet. But that motivation was growing muted and fuzzy as their bodies collided and he dropped his forehead against hers.

"I've been thinking about you all night," he whispered hotly.

"What have you been thinking?" she asked, the breathiness in her voice betraying how damn much she wanted him.

He didn't answer right away. In the span of his silence, she imagined he'd give her a sweet line, because even when they were younger, he was a talker in moments like this, always telling her she was hot, he loved touching her, that sort of thing. But it was no rote compliment that fell from his lips.

His answer was simple.


"Red what?"

"I've been wondering if red was a theme for you tonight. If it extended across your entire wardrobe."

She trembled, turning into putty in his hands at the implication. Damn, a few enticing words, and she was ready to launch herself at him. "You have some very interesting thoughts, Travis."

"Oh, you don't even know the half of it," he said in a husky voice, low in her ear, the words sending a burst of tingles down her spine, settling between her legs in a sweet ache.

"Well, you were standing there drinking beer and thinking about my clothes. That's a little odd," she said, teasing him.

He yanked her body harder against him. "Did I say I was thinking about your clothes?" He wrenched back to look her in the eyes. His were full of dark intent, as if his filthy thoughts were written on them for her to read. He dipped his head to her neck, his warm breath on her bare skin. She shivered from the closeness, from the connection.

"Then tell me what you were thinking about," she said.

"All I could do was imagine what you had on underneath this dress," he said, fingering the slim strap on her shoulder. "And if that was red, too. If you were going to let me find out."

Unexpected Forfeit
A Ground and Pound Novel
Sapphire Knight

Release Date: December 1, 2015

Genre: MMA, Sports Romance, Contemporary, Fighter, Erotica novel


Every chance I get, I go to watch the local fights.
I crave the excitement and the rush as it courses through
my body, with the sounds of fists meeting flesh.

It's not just the blood or the hard bodies that keeps me coming back each time, wanting more.
It's Jace 'King' Kash and his artic blue eyes. He has fists made of steel with a body honed for speed. He's breathtaking to watch in the cage. The King easily brings men to their knees, and then graciously helps them up when he's finished.

Getting introduced to him was thrilling, falling in love with him, unexpected.
Jace comes pounding through, waking my mind and body up; showing me what I was missing out on in my life. He makes me realize what I could have and that what doesn't destroy me, will eventually make me stronger.


Illusions, life is full of them. My life wasn't always like it is now, how it appears from the outside. I was drowning in drugs, gangs and in my brother's bad decisions.
So, I did what I do best, I fought my way out. I keep fighting, using every asset I have and attempting to get as far away from my past as possible.

Chyna enters into my life right as I'm prepping for the biggest fight of my existence. I wasn't looking for any new distractions, but she becomes my personal drug of choice, begging me to use her. Unfortunately, Chyna's not the only person that show's up out of the blue.
When my past decides to go after my girl, it's my turn to make it rain, to make it hurt. I refuse to let it destroy me this time, dragging her down in the process. I just hope she can make it through the last round beside me and not forfeit.

Once that bell rings, watch out, because I will come for you, I will hunt you down and fight to the death. I'm the King, I won't be defeated.

"Oh Chyna, Kiki, you are going to get us in trouble! I like how you think though!" He chuckles.

"Why did you call me Kiki?" I like it, no one has ever called me kiki before.

"You know like 'Ho-tto-ki-ki' No one's ever said that? Do you actually know Chinese?" He just blew me away. He's speaking Chinese to me?

"No, I don't and no, nobody has called me that. What does it mean? And you know I'm not Chinese or anything, my names even spelled C-H-Y-N-A. See there's no I in it, so no real country of China here."

"It means pancake. That's why I just called you Kiki, like sweet, delicious cake."

I think I just swooned. Like literally swooned right there. He's so adorable, trying to speak Chinese to me because my name is Chyna.

"Wow, why cake though?"

"Because, cake is my favorite thing." He shrugs like it's no big deal and I just smile sweetly at him. Turning, I peer back out my window, I have nothing to say to ruin this absolute perfect moment.

We turn to watch the fight and I'm in heaven to see Jace in his element. He's even more gorgeous then his poster picture when he's fighting. You can see it's his passion and he trains so hard for it. It's inspiring just to think of the amount of dedication and discipline it must take to do what he does and actually win fights. Not to mention all those muscles are on display and flexed like a snake ready to strike. Every time he gets a good hit in, I stand up to scream like a mad woman and cheer for him.

The fight is crazy; the guys go blow for blow, trading punches. Jace goes to town throwing hits left and right until finally, he clips Ford in the side of the jaw. Ford falls to the floor in a heap and Jace wins by knock out. He's kind of known for his KO's so you'd think his opponents would guard their face and not trade punches with the guy.

"Well by all means, I can't let it be unfair. Take the wheel for a second." He lets go of the steering wheel and I lean over quickly to straighten us out again. He reaches back with one hand behind his neck and easily peels off his tank. I mean JESUS CHRIST the tank alone wasn't enough torture for me to stare at?

He grabs the wheel quickly as we start to swerve, "Woah! You're supposed to be watching right now!"

Shit. I wasn't paying attention to the road; I was staring at his chest full of sculpted pecs and abs. I blink quickly. Shit this is what Vivid was talking about with me zoning out. I bet that bitch jinxed me! I look down his body a little more. Oh Wow! Yep he has the "V" going on. I've never really got what the big deal is before but sitting here staring at it , I can't help but just want to lean down and lick each hard ridge.

"Oops sorry about that! You had me curious to what exactly you were doing and I got distracted."

"I told you I was making it fair. I mean if you're going to not have to wear a shirt, then I don't want to either. We're headed to the beach anyhow."

Dear sweet little six pound baby Jesus. I wonder if this trick would work with his pants also.

"It's cool, I understand completely, fair is fair after all. So tell me, if I take off my pants?"
