Cover Shoot, Anyone?

I totally forgot about watching Harlequin on The Bachelor last night, but luckily author Nancy Naigle was there to pick up the slack for me.  Here’s her take on last night’s episode.

Who else tuned in for a couple hours of flirty fun with the hunky BACHELOR last night? There was no way this Writer Girl was going to miss an episode complete with a Harlequin photo shoot, and for me, that was the best part of the show.

 

Sean proved to be a pretty hot cover model, and those girls were ready to be the apple of his eye. The whole thing was set up so that one girl would get a three-book cover deal with Harlequin, but it was pretty clear that snuggling up to Sean was the win-win for the girls—win or lose. Well, for everyone except Ford model Kristy who, of course, ended up snagging that prize.

 

In Sean’s words, “We’re going to be Harlequin models, the most trusted name in romance.”

Yay! We love romance, and it wasn’t only me saying that. The girls were really excited and who could blame them? Daniella said that Harlequin books are some of the most romantic books ever and she took it as her personal mission to capture that level of romance. The girls were funny as they picked up copies of Harlequin’s amazing book covers and tried to decide which they wanted to be.

 

The show did it right, full makeup and wardrobe for the Harlequin shoot which was just for the show. The winner will do real cover shoots for the three books at a later date. There was plenty of smack-talking going on between the girls but they landed on those cover images looking sweet and sultry.

 

In this Writer Girl’s opinion, the cutest cover couple was Sean and Lesley with their western themed cover. It was so cute and I swear I might just have to write a blond cowboy story so I can use that image as inspiration. Okay, so I’m a sucker for cowboys.

 

The historical covers were elegant, the southern belles as sweet as my tea, and the vixen glam appropriately sexy. Taryn made a pretty terrific vampire, but she wasn’t the only one with her fangs out. Those girls are ready to take a bite out of the handsome Sean.

If you saw the episode, what was your favorite cover? Or better yet, what would have liked to see?

Bottom Line:  I’m off to see if there’s anything on YouTube about this yet.

Harlequin on The Bachelor

Barbara Vey -- January 11th, 2013

Shelf Awareness just sent me this and I love it.  Even though I don’t watch The Bachelor (I mean, really, just how many of these people stay together and how much crying can you take in an hour?), I love that Harlequin is involved.  To me, The Bachelor is a fantasy happily ever after as romance novels are.  The two are a match made in heaven.

Here’s the article from Shelf Awareness (thanks for sending it to me!).


Monday night’s episode of the ABC reality show The Bachelor will feature a special “group date” where the 13 competing women will pose for the cover of a Harlequin novel with Bachelor Sean Lowe. Harlequin creative director Margie Miller (left) will shepherd the group through hair, makeup and wardrobe, and then have them pose for several cover scenarios. Miller and Harlequin brand representative Michelle Renaud (center) will select the winner, for her “ability to pose in a polished and unaffected manner and convey a genuine connection with Sean.” She’ll receive a three-book cover-model deal with Harlequin.

Bottom Line:  I may just have to watch this episode.
