Blythe Coopman never imagined she’d be homeless, but a series of events has landed her on San Antonio’s streets…hungry, tired, and scared. She clings to her most precious possession, a phone accidentally swiped from a local firefighter, who, instead of canceling the number, starts texting her. Soon, the man’s calls and texts are the highlight of her days, but she declines his frequent offers of help. Blythe refuses to be his burden—until a vicious attack takes the decision out of her hands.
When the woman he’s already begun to care for ends up in the ER, Sawyer “Squirrel” McClay is livid—and ashamed. He should have insisted she accept his help long ago. Now, he’s not taking no for an answer. While his friends rally round Blythe, Squirrel’s bond with her grows stronger by the day, until he realizes he’ll do anything to keep her safe, healthy, and happy…even as his own lifelong insecurities work against him.
But despite leaving the streets behind, Blythe and Sawyer discover old dangers still linger, threatening to end the couple’s new bliss before it’s barely begun.
** Shelter for Blythe is the 11th book in the Badge of Honor: Texas Heroes Series. Each book is a stand-alone, with no cliffhanger endings.

It’s Squirrel’s Turn
Blythe Coopman has been homeless town, she gets in serious trouble.
Sawyer “Squirrel” McClay can’t get the homeless woman he inadvertently gave his phone to out of his mind. Something about Blythe brings out all of his protective instincts and admiration.
I really enjoyed this book in the series. Squirrel and Blythe are two really decent people who don’t have a ton of self-appreciation for themselves but have a definite appreciation of each other, as well as a wild attraction.
Sweet story of Blythe and Squirrel. I think he had more “hang ups “ than she did. But a HEA was awesome to see.
Another Beat Seller!
Susan Stoker wrote this amazing story of Blythe Coopman and Sawyer “Squirrel” McClay. This story has all of the elements that we love in Susan Stoker stories. this story also has a few twists, as well as updates on other couples in the badge of honor series. the drama part of the story is so awesomely done! I never saw the ending to the drama coming...at all! Erin Mallon, the narrator, did such an amazing job at narrating the story. she acts out the story so well. I love her as a narrator! you so need to read/listen to the story. we haven’t heard too much about squirrel before the story, but his story is so well done. Susan did such a great job writing about homelessness and and all that it encompasses. Susan Stoker did a wonderful job making you feel throughout this book. also wait until you find out how he got the nickname squirrel... it is so worth it and so original of a reason!
