Mills & Boon True Love stories are all about real, relatable women and strong, deeply desirable men experiencing the intensity, anticipation and sheer rush of falling in love.  Get swept away by these emotional, glamorous and uplifting romances!

Key elements 

• A Mills & Boon True Love novel is all about the heroine, she is key in this series. Our heroines need to be real and relatable, and her story should make the reader wish they were in the heroine’s shoes!
• We need a hero we can immediately trust, who is worthy of the heroine. Not all our heroes are super rich international tycoons (although some might be!) but they’re successful in their own right and should be a strong man our heroine would aspire to be with.
• Glamorous, international settings are encouraged and work well to add the aspirational element to our romances.
• We welcome heroes and heroines from all backgrounds and nationalities.
• Low sensuality: these stories are high on emotional and sensual tension but have no explicit sexual detail.
• Captivating internal emotional conflicts that will sustain the story over 50,000 words.
• Couple-focussed with minimal secondary characters to generate emotional depth and intensity.
• Delivers contemporary, fresh takes on classic romance themes.
• This is the home of feel-good, entertaining and fresh paced romance.
• Just because these romances are sweet, it doesn’t mean they can’t be edge-of-the-seat exciting! Throw your reader straight into the story!
