'Bachelor' Harlequin Covers: Contestants Pose For Book Covers (PHOTOS)

Last night's Bachelor episode went semi-bookish. Bachelor Sean Lowe posed for Harlequin romance novel book covers with some of the contestants.

Though the winner'sKristy's, book cover with Sean won't be published, she will receive a three-book cover model opportunity with Harlequin for upcoming titles.

In regards to this opportunity, Harlequin Brand Representative Michelle Renaud noted, "What makes The Bachelor so compelling—searching for true love and ending up with your soul mate—is what our novels are all about. This is a real Harlequin story come to life. And The Bachelor and Harlequin are a great fit, because people know both always have a happy ending."

Of the winner, Renaud told USA Today, "The camera doesn't lie, and for the winning shot Harlequin was looking for a photograph that conveyed a genuine connection with Sean. I think we found our winner and a perfect Harlequin cover model — and with any luck she just might be the one to steal his heart!"

Will Kristy end up with Sean? Watch Season 17 of The Bachelor on Monday nights at 8:00pm/7:00pm central to find out!
