As we all know, one of the key qualities men look for when searching for a mate is her ability to pose as a vampire, Southern belle, cowgirl, or glamor vixen on the cover of a mass-market romance novel. Which must be why Sean staged his first group date of the season at a photo shoot for Harlequin on last night’s episode of The Bachelor. The woman who showed the most chemistry with Sean in her photos was granted a three-book cover deal with the romance novel giant, and — spoiler alert — Kristy the professional model took the crown. Click through to see Kristy’s winning photo, as well as runner-up “covers” featuring the Bachelor with Selma, Taryn, and cowgirl Lesley.
Aww, don’t they look cute? Unfortunately, you won’t find Seduced at your local supermarket anytime soon — this and the other Bachelor-themed covers are for your amusement only. Kristy, as winner, will get to shoot three additional covers for real Harlequin romance novels.

I’m not 100 percent thrilled with the framing of this image. More dress, less balcony please!

Sure, Taryn looks lovely — for a vampire, that is — but I’m shocked that Robyn’s vampire-themed shoot didn’t win out. She licked the man’s chin, for God’s sake!

The best part of this picture? The horse working his “I’d really prefer to be somewhere else” face in the top left-hand corner. Testify, you magnificent beast!
