Me (Alicia Dean). Author of DEATH NOTICE (Northland Crime Chronicles, Book 1)  – A killer has something to say, and he’s using her obituary column to get his point across…

(I don’t know these actors, so I’m going by what little I do know, and the superficial ‘looks’ thing. :))

Want: Benjamin Millepied – He’s gorgeous, and although he’s a ballet dancer, he’s very masculine. He’s confident and sexy, he has some kind of charisma about him that’s irresistible. And, how cool would it be to have a fling with Natalie Portman’s husband?

Wed: Gilles Marini – I’m not sure what kind of husband material he’d be, but who cares? Have you SEEN this guy? YUMMMM 

Waste: Olivier Martinez –  He just doesn’t do it for me, although I haven’t seen him in anything other than photos. (That I recall). I don’t like those squinty eyes. (Let’s face it, he doesn’t have that sexy, badA$$ Clint Eastwood squint. He just has really tiny eyes)


SILVER JAMES, author of THAT OL’ BLACK MAGIC  Werewolves, Fae, and Dragons, oh my! What’s Sade Marquis, a human FBI agent, to do? Solve the crime, of course. Website: http:/www.silverjames.com 

Want: Benjamin Millepied. He’s a dancer. And choreographer. That means he has moves. And stamina. 😉 Oh, and he’s pretty darn easy on the eyes, too! And did I mention that he’s limber? Just sayin’… 😀

Wed: Gilles Marini. He’s a dancer, too, but not professionally. When he took his shirt off for the tango during Dancing With the Stars, I was a goner. I swooned. No, really. Swooned, I tell you! He’s sooo darn sexy that he could be a lover and a husband. But…I wouldn’t want to wear him out so Benjamin can come visit.

Waste: Olivier Martinez. Sorry, dude. You just don’t do it for me. You might be all about the “Revenge” but I’m a lover, not a fighter. Most of the time. 😉


Layla Chase, author of Up And Coming, an erotic romance that features a Latin hero who seduces with his dancing ability.  Website:  www.laylachase.com

Want—Olivier Martinez—those intense looks he gave Diane Lane in the movie Unfaithful were scorching and the love scenes were combustible.

Wed—Gilles Marini—I have a secret fantasy over guys who are accomplished dancers and often include a sexy dance scene in my erotic titles.

Waste—Benjamin Millepied—can’t deny that I think there’s something a wee bit creepy about romances that occur while a movie (Black Swan) is in production.


Linda McLaughlin, author of ROGUE’S HOSTAGE — His hostage… Her destiny…

Linda is offering a FREE ebook copy of Rogues’ Hostage to one lucky commenter!!!

Want: Olivier Martinez. Not only is he gorgeous, he’s charming and has a cute sense of humor. I watched some interviews at YouTube, and he said that, as an actor, he’s the “shame” of his family of boxers and mechanics. LOL. This Sunday Olivier is starting a multi-episode arc on REVENGE, and I’m looking forward to watching.

Wed: Gilles Marini. Another handsome, charming Frenchman. Gilles isn’t just a good actor, he can dance and cook, too. Perfect marriage material, methinks. I enjoyed his stint on Brothers and Sisters as Rachel Griffiths French lover.

Waste: Benjamin Millepied. I hate to have to do this. Benjamin is an incredible ballet dancer, and I do love the ballet. But I could only find one movie he was in, BLACK SWAN, and he had such a small role, I didn’t even realize who he played until I got to the credits. Apparently his main job was choreographer and he did a fabulous job. But I fell in love with the film, not the actor. If you haven’t seen it, the movie is terrific, suspenseful and visually beautiful. Natalie Portman deserved her best actress Oscar.


Now we’d like to hear from you….which of these sizzling Frenchmen would you Want, Wed, and Waste?

Thanks for playing!
