It’s off to the roses!

Emily Maynard‘s official portrait for her upcoming season of The Bachelorette has been revealed exclusively to PEOPLE.

Maynard, 26, whom Brad Womack chose as the winner on his season of The Bachelor, has said she’s “scared to death” about looking for love on television again.

Last June, she and Womack announced they had called off their engagement.

This season of The Bachelorette will be filmed in North Carolina, with single mom Maynard shooting scenes at her home in Charlotte and her suitors living in a six-bedroom house nearby.

The Bachelorette premieres May 14 at 9:30 ET on ABC.
