Okay...I know I'm succumbing to the casting thing, but here goes:

For Ana, I'd suggest Willa Holland:


I'm less sure of a Christian, but this picture of Drew Fuller makes me go, "Hmmmmmmm":

Great choices Nifty. I had to look up Drew Fuller, hadn't heard of him. He is more of the correct age for Christian, and he's got the look. In spades.

http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2719825/ Oliver Jackson-Cohen. British, 26, fairly unknown. Sorry, I'm terrible at posting pix but take a look--I think he has the right stuff ...

Also, Alex Pettyfer (from Magic Mike) ... another "right" face.

Got a Harlequin Reader Survey that was about 50 Shades of Grey today!

Hopefully Harlequin will be influenced. I'm on the verge on cancelling my Presents subscription because they aren't compelling as they once were and the modern heroines are more annoying than likable.

I am wondering too since it's stuck in my mind that an editor at Harlequin stated that all their books have to pass this test that the characters make choices and decisions their readers would agree with. Shocked Imagine the questions that could be asked! Laughing

ETA: Could it have to do with the new trilogy mentioned here?

http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/06/06/how-fifty-shades-of-grey-is-shaking-up-the-business-of-the-romance-genre.html

Harlequin’s official position on self-publishing is that anything bringing more attention to romance fiction in general is in their best interests. In fact, it’s quick to capitalize on the success of the Grey books. In July, Harlequin will release The Siren, the first book in Tiffany Reisz’s trilogy of BDSM novels. It’s about a kinky writer and her sub-dom relationship with her English editor.

I've read that the Siren isn't a FS type romance but more erotica/chick litish.

They asked if i read FS, how would I rate it, why I liked it, what line do I read, which line resembles FS and why.

The survey was here: https://www.tellharlequin.com/Portal/default.aspx

Me too. Even more erotica than chick lit. Not FS.. all about the romance and the relationship. Haven't read Siren, just going by reviews.
