Where do those covers come from?

When I'm planning a book, I usually have some idea of what the hero and heroine look like, but the artist who creates the cover doesn't know what I'm thinking, so I (and probably most authors) send images to aid in the process of completing a cover.

So, here are some of the images I sent when I mailed in THE HEIR'S CONVENIENT WIFE:
Here are my original versions of Regina and Dell:

And here's a scene I included (just in case):
And some scenery:

And, of course, one of the dogs that appears in the book...just because he's cute:

Of course, these were just suggestions, a way to aid the artist, but I have to say that I love the actual cover!

It's a beautiful cover but how much of it is actually your choice?
