Mills & Boon teamed up with Woman's Weekly in July last year to launch a short story competition. They had some fantastic submissions and the winning story was Letting Go by Karen Martyn who receives a laptop worth £800, a consultation with a Mills & Boon editor and a year's subscription to the Mills & Boon "Romance" series.
"I am still reeling from the news of my win and did not truly believe it until the letter arrived! Thank you so much, Woman's Weekly, for giving me this opportunity to pursue my writing career. I fully intend to make the most of it."
Congratulations also go to three runners-up who all won a year's subscription to the Mills & Boon "Romance" series.
'Change of Plan', by Mrs C Jacobsen from Macclesfield
'Back For Good', by Mrs R Harris from Barnstaple, Devon
'The Love of Her Life', by Miss E Kerr from East Keswick, West Yorkshire
