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 by Susan Stoker.  This tale tells the story of Hope, Calder and Billy.  Hope and Billy, mother and son, haven't had an easy go of it as of late and Calder, being the alpha male he is, does all he can to swoop in and save the day.  Yet, Hope is independent and strong willed.  It was enjoyable to see these two navigate their relationship and to watch Hope give in to her feelings, despite her fear.  And to watch Calder recognize that he has met the One!  The first half of the book moves along at a leisurely pace and we get to know each character and where their heart and mind is at.  There isn't much happening except for the journey of the love story and then BAM!  Ms. Stoker certainly knows how to throw a curveball to any relationship.  This story has a little bit of everything - a touch of humor, sweet love, the beauty of youth and even a surprise or two along the way.  Oh, and did I mention a little bit of suspense and mystery too.  As seems par for the course, Ms. Stoker even made me tear up - her ability to put down in words the heartfelt emotions her characters feel simply touches my heart.  I highly recommend reading JUSTICE FOR HOPE.  Yes, this is book 12 of the series, but can easily be read as a standalone, although many characters from the previous books make appearances.  On that note, I also encourage you to read the other stories in this series as well.


New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal Bestselling Author, Susan Stoker has a heart as big as the state of Texas where she lives, but this all American girl has also spent the last fourteen years living in Missouri, California, Colorado, and Indiana. She's married to a retired Army man who now gets to follow her around the country.

She debuted her first series in 2014 and quickly followed that up with the SEAL of Protection Series, which solidified her love of writing and creating stories readers can get lost in.
