Outback Hearts (Beyond Reality Series)by Susan Stoker

Outback Hearts (Beyond Reality Series)
Susan Stoker


Sam travels to Australia to take part in a reality show to find her true love. 

She doesn’t expect to find that the other contestants are all model-

beautiful and ready to lie their way into the bachelor’s heart. Sam 

desperately wants to be loved for who she is, plain and simple.

Alex never expects to find his one true match on a reality show, but 

figures he’s got nothing to lose. Spending a few weeks with beautiful 

women won’t be a hardship. At least, until he meets the contestants and 

realizes things will be harder than he thought.

Sam struggles through the Australian wildlife and crazy competitions while 

Alex struggles to figure out what is real and what isn’t when dealing with 

the contestants. Sam and Alex struggle to find true love while beating 

back the odds, producers, contestants, and deadly animals to find each 

other and their destinies.


“And what is it you really want?” Sam asked, turning her head around to 

look at him.
“I want someone I can laugh with. I want a woman who I can sit on a park 

bench and not speak, but still be comfortable with. I want a woman who 

wants me for who I am, not for what I can give her. I want a woman who 

can be my friend as well as my lover. I want a woman who will stand in 

the rain with me just because it’s there and not worry about her makeup 

or her hair. I want a woman who’s strong, but who can still lean on me. I 

want to look forward to going home because I know that she’s there. I 

want a woman I can take care of. Who will let me pamper her just 

because I want to.”Alex took a deep breath and looked down at Sammi. 

“I want a companion. I want someone to call my own and a woman who 

can call me hers.”

Alex saw a tear fall from Sammi’s eye. He reached up with his finger to 

brush it away. “I want this,” he said softly and dipped his head to her lips. 

Alex’s hand went to the back of Sam’s neck and tightened, drawing her to 

him. His lips moved on hers. Sam let out a short moan.


Susan Stoker currently lives in Texas, but over the last fourteen years has 

also lived in Missouri, California, Colorado, and Indiana. She met the love 

of her life on “Hotmail classified” before such a thing as online dating and 

sites like match.com even existed!
Being the spouse of an Enlisted Army man was an experience, and 

spending four years apart while he was stationed in Korea and then sent 

to a different State then she was living was not fun. But now that he’s 

retired HE gets to follow HER around the country!

Susan and her husband are passionate about adopting dogs from rescue 

groups and shelters. They’ve had a total of nine “rescued” dogs in their 

brief 14 year marriage. Mainly basset hounds and bloodhounds, but 

they’ve recently branched out and adopted a basset/terrier mix.
As a type A person, Susan has two master’s degrees and her PhD, but 

tells people that all having a PhD means is that she can write really long 

papers. She’s been reading romances since middle school, even once 

crossing out all the names in a book and changing them to her own and to 

the name of her crush. She’s been writing scenes for years, thinking 

about what she likes, and recently tried stringing the scenes into a book. 

Her first series, Beyond Reality, will be a trilogy, with all three books in 

the series having HEAs. Happy Reading!
