Teresa LaBella has been fascinated with fiction since she learned to read. Writing in other genres developed past the stage of idea to 'I did' in the contemporary romance novel "Reservations" and 'I did it - again!' in "Heartland," the second novel in the romance trilogy.

In the final novel of the trilogy, the story moves from the Midwest to Scotland where a young woman's personal quest to find herself blazes a trail through uncertainty to a place of "Belonging."

Comments from readers led to a series spin-off novella, "Love Unlikely" and short stories on the lives of Harmony neighbors in "Tales from Heartland."

In the works: "The UnMatchables," an international thriller with a hint of romantic suspense.

The first book in the series "Reservations" really is the light read, happily-ever-after romance. The second novel "Heartland" veered away from that story line and "Belonging" bent the rules even further. One of my editors and an author friend who writes erotica described the series as a family saga much more rooted in reality than the typical romance trilogy. So your choice of which book you would like to read and review and how you would like to receive it. E-mail?
Kindle? Hard copy by mail? Thanks!(less)

I loved this book.
Pass it by if slice of life stories aren't your cup of tea. There are no thrills or who-done-it mysteries to solve in these pages. No sex beyond a hint of romantic love rekindled. Just a sweet read about everyday people coping with what life dishes out.

So my reliable source was informed. I think she's read everything J.D. Robb and Nora Roberts. I'll start at the beginning. Thanks!
