You Sexy Thing
Burt Saunders and Lillian Love: Talk about power couples: Saunders is a bigwig in the state Senate, and Love is a prominent oncologist. But it's romance, not gravitas, that's in the air when this handsome couple is around.
Simone and Scott Lutgert: Once Naples' most eligible bachelor, Scott Lutgert became the town's most smitten husband after he married the elegant Simone in a spectacular ceremony a couple of years ago. And the honeymoon's not over: When she's around, the multitasking developer still puts down his cell phone and pays attention.
Jessica Stilwell and Samir Cabrera: What a gene pool: TV's cutest anchorwoman has an equally hot honey, Colombian-born real estate maven Cabrera. The two may look like carefree young lovers, but they are actually the doting parents of twins.
Jorge and Darlene Perez: Muy caliente: Buddies with Donald Trump and George Clooney, Miami's Jorge Perez has revved up the Fort Myers' real estate scene with his Oasis high-rise. He and his striking wife, Darlene, excel at throwing star-studded arts benefits and are already adding Miami spice to our cultural milieu.
Thomas and Mina Edison: He put Fort Myers on the map, but she gave it heart and soul. Eighteen years younger than her husband, the vibrant Mina brought life to the lonely genius' last years, and the two left the legacy of their gracious estate and beautiful gardens for all of us to love.
Art and Carole Allen: Ooh-la-la: Frenchwoman Carole is an ace partner for the tennis-crazy, high-tech head of Naples' software superpower Allen Systems Group. In October, the two married on a Learjet at the Naples airport before whisking surprised friends and family to a reception at the Orlando Ritz.
Rickey Medlocke and Lily Darby: Lynyrd Skynard guitarist Medlocke and his doe-eyed fiancée, Darby, don't party like rock stars when they're at home in Fort Myers, but all eyes are on the couple when they step out.
Jim Saindon and Carol Ann May: A major social force who manages to remain the epitome of graciousness, May glows at charitable galas or just hanging at home with her debonair partner. In last April's Town & Country, the happy couple was the image of Naples glamour.
