Publisher's Summary

Hiding from her ex is exhausting enough, but for Hope Drayden, putting her seven-year-old son through a life on the run and living on the streets has been mentally torturous. When a kind diner owner offers her a job, Hope begins to claw her way toward a new beginning for herself and Billy, one tip at a time. But since her son’s recent abduction, and with threats from her ex still fresh in her mind, she’s constantly looking over her shoulder. Then a surprising, and lucky, tip from a diner regular puts yet another target on their backs. 

At the request of a friend, medical examiner Calder Stonewall has been looking for Hope and Billy for weeks. When they unexpectedly show up at the scene of a crime, his interest soon becomes personal. He’s amazed by the beautiful, brave woman and her resilient son. He’s also surprised by his growing need to take care of them both, although winning Hope’s trust won’t be easy. But when a tragedy thrusts the couple together, Calder quickly proves he’s a man Hope can rely on. 

Which is a good thing…because she’ll need all his support, and love, to get through a threat they never saw coming. 

*Justice for Hope is the 12th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

Stoker Does It Again

I have read or listened to all of Stoker's books. This is a different bend for Stoker and it is wonderful. Hope is brave and a strong independent woman, Calder allows Hope her time to truly trust him with her and her son. Romance, action and believable dialogue with real full fledged characters. Also you get to hear about your old favorites. You can not go wrong with this author.

another great romantic suspense in the series!

I am yet to read a book in this series that does not grab and hold my attention! This is Hope and Calder's story...whom we caught a glimpse of at the end of Blythe and Sawyer's story. Calder has spent months searching for Hope and her 7yo son, Billy, ever since Blythe shared that they were homeless, but without success. Imagine his surprise when he arrives at a crime scene and the witnesses are non other than Hope and Billy. It was cute and hilarious to see how the 40 yo ME became a blithering idiot around the beautiful single mom. Calder learns that Hope is a waitress at a diner and has been living in a seedy motel. Calder also becomes a regular at the diner and soon wins over Billy, who has been mute since he had been kidnapped (in another story). Over time, Hope becomes comfortable with Calder and lets him into her life. We know that Hope is on the run from an abusive ex, who happens to be a cop, so that took some doing. She and Billy have found an ally in the elderly, widowed owner of the diner, Joe. Her coworkers though...not so much. There is so much going on in this book but I don't want to give spoilers so I will just say that we have a patient, sexy dude, his awesome supportive friends, bad guys and a good balance of sweet romance and suspense. Another great HEA to wrap up the story. Now I need Quinn and Driftwood's story...*tapping foot impatiently*

Excellent audiobook!

I really enjoyed this story about a woman who fled from her abusive police officer husband with her young son. The hero is a medical examiner who meets her at a crime scene where another homeless person was murdered. He instantly interested in her, but she’s very cautious about getting close to anyone. He persists by slowly getting to know her and her son, who is unable to talk since a trauma earlier. Both of them start to fall for each other, but Hope is afraid to commit when bad things begin to happen. I don’t want to give too many spoilers, but this is a very good story and narration was excellent.

Trust in Love

I loved that Hope and Calder took their time getting to know and understand each other. Their patience and control were certainly tested but their bond was so strong and Hope quickly learned she could trust him with her heart and her son’s heart as well. Great story.

A wonderful feel good story

First let me say that Erin Mallon is an awesome narrator. Once again she brings all of these characters to life and absolutely kills it every time!! This is such an awesome series! I love how we always get so much of the other men and their women in each book because they are such a close knit group who are always there for each other. I love Hope!! She is such a strong female lead and an awesome mother to her young son Billy. They have been through so much from her abusive ex to being homeless to Billy being taken, and thanks to Calder and Blythe their lives are taking a turn for the better. Calder is amazing. He is ready to settle down and he has had his eyes set on Hope for some time. He was thrilled to finally find her and does not plan on letting her go. Things will not be smooth sailing and they will still have some challenges and some heart stopping moments but hopefully it will all lead to their HEA.

What a great read!!!!

Eeeeeep!!!

I’ve been waiting to get down my list to this one! I’ve loved Calder and I’m so dang happy he finally got his girl!

This story as with the others was full of craziness and of course drama. The drama wasn’t as intense or as bad as some of the other books. However, the intensity of the events that unfold had me on the edge of my seat. I laughed, I cried (ugh, yes, the woman made me cry) and enjoyed this story immensely!

Hope and her son went from living on the streets to a motel, then Calder found her. Their lives started to move in the right direction. As usual though, when things go bad, they really go bad. Thankfully it works out, but not without a lot of heart wrenching antics.

Great story, great narrator, awesome all the way around Susan Stoker knows how to keep her characters real and keep you involved and turning pages or if your listening Erin Mallon will keep your attention and almost act out the story and bring it to life
