Cover Judging - The CEO's Christmas Proposition

I've made a discovery this festive season: Silhouette Special Editions. From their website:
"These contemporary romances from the Silhouette Special Edition line will strike a chord with you as heroines find the balance between their work lives and personal lives on the way to true love!"
Doesn't that sound like a thrilling story? Furthermore, most of these tales of balancing work life and personal life occur during the holiday season. So, without further adieu, here is the first of a few Christmas titles I have for you:

First Glance: This one is all about the styling: I am 100% in favor of her shiny gold pumps. Especially because they match the gold lamé top she's sporting. Also: her hair. And his hair, now I look at it - gotta love a side-part. I'm also loving the weirdly shaped fairy-light sculptures behind our happy couple. And, as the wreath at the bottom left informs me, this appears to take place somewhere with photo-worthy architecture. Score: 4 out of 5

Out of Context: Dispatches from the Internet

There are so many things that I don't understand about this ad. Mainly, is Beardo supposed to be representative of the moms returning to school or is he supposed to entice moms to return to school?

Because I think it might fail either way.
