E.L. James, whose Fifty Shades of Grey series has broken sales records for contemporary adult publishing (150 million copies sold worldwide), has written a new novel, THE MISTER, published on April 16, 2019.
THE MISTER is a contemporary romance set in London, Cornwall, and Eastern Europe that introduces readers to the privileged and aristocratic young Englishman Maxim Trevelyan and the mysterious, talented, and beautiful Alessia Demachi, who’s recently arrived in London owning little more than a dangerous and troublesome past.
“I’m so excited to finally get this passionate new romance out into the world,” said E L James. “It’s a Cinderella story for the twenty-first century. Maxim and Alessia have led me on a fascinating journey and I hope that my readers will be swept away by their thrilling and sensual tale, just as I was while writing, and that, like me, they fall in love with them.”
“E L James is an extraordinary storyteller who invites readers to escape into the intimate world of her characters,” said Messitte. “Readers are going to be surprised and delighted with the romance that James has in store for them. She has hit her stride again, with an erotic love story that’s full of suspense, adventure, and menace – a story that gives us a peek behind the curtain into worlds most of us can only imagine.”
Fifty Shades Freed won the Goodreads Choice Award (2012), and Fifty Shades of Grey was selected as one of the 100 Great Reads, as voted by readers, in PBS’s The Great American Read (2018).
