I have just recently started reading mills and boon. I had seen my gran read them years ago but i didn't think they were my kind of read. Anyway a few weeks ago my gran gave me a black bin bag full of mills and boon books to hand in to a local jumble sale. i was bored and decided to have a read at one of the books. Needless to say i ended up keeping them all and gave a donation to the jumble sale instead.

The core product in the Mills and Boon brand are the five series which are published every month

MODERN ROMANCE-Which is described as" One romance you'll never want to end 'Sophisticated, passionate romance.
TENDER ROMANCE- Sparkling, tender love stories.
SENSUAL-Bad men, strong women, hot, sizzling romance.
MEDICAL-Romance set against the background of the medical profession.
HISTORICAL-From medieval to the roaring twenties, vivid and rich.

SILHOUETTE In 1999 the silhouette brand was modernised to capture younger and more affluent readers.
DESIRE- sensual love stories. SPECIAL EDITION-romances packed with emotion.
Desire: Daring and provocative, sensual love stories.

Special Edition: Compelling romances packed with emotion. These books tackle sensitive issues while embracing the romantic ideal that love can conquer all.

Sensation: A thrilling mix of passion, adventure and drama

Intrigue: Romance suspense at its best.

The different authors each bring there own unique fantasies to life through there stories which helps to distinguish them from the other authors. I find it really easy to picture the scene and imagine how it would be because there description is usually really good the author gives you plenty of information regarding atmosphere, decoration of the surroundings, etc.

200 million of these books are sold per annum world-wide which = 6.6 books per second. There are 1500 authors world-wide; 200 of the authors live in the UK. There is 600 new titles per year. The books range in price from 2.80-5.99. If you go to the mills and boon website www.millsandboon.co.uk and join up you will receive 2 books free and a mystery gift if after you receive your books you don't want to receive anymore you can simply unsubscribe from the club and you pay nothing and you get to keep the 2 books and the gift.

My favourite books so far have been from the modern romance section. The author i have read most and enjoyed is Penny Jordan. If you want to read some of her books i suggest Expecting the playboys heir, Blackmailing the society bride and Bedding his virgin mistress.

I'm afraid I don't like Mills & Boon - woman meets man, woman hates man, woman eventually falls in love with man - happy ending! They are really popular light reads though - just that I'm more of a thriller reader myself. Good review. :)
