Our favourite mums from Mills & Boon

Mothers come in all forms. Biological mums, foster mums, unexpected mums, temporary mums, and even dog mums. Despite their differences, they all share one thing: a deep and fierce love for their children. Their lives are not their own – they belong to their children, and for this, we celebrate them. To celebrate Mother’s Day this year we’ve picked the Mills & Boon books with our favourite mothers!
