For the rest of us who didn't final: the Mills and Boon editors selected 20 random first chapters and wrote up very short and helpful critiques on each. They are posted in four batches of five here (On the website romanceisnotdead.com, select the dropdown "News.")
This is a wonderful opportunity to read some interesting entries and understand what these editors are looking for.
Nothing like learning by example! Check it out!
