Fifty Shades of Grey took the world by storm when it was first released in 2012. What began life as Twilight fan-fiction morphed into phenomenally successful book and film trilogy, as beloved for its silliness and steaminess, as it was reviled for what many deemed its sub-par prose. However, no matter what side you are on, the fact remains that author E.L. James is at it again.
James has confirmed that her new novel The Mister is on the way this spring. It tells the story of Maxim, a privileged British man who inherits a large fortune and falls in love with a mysterious woman named Alessia.
The title was revealed in an exclusive interview with Today, which included a steamy excerpt from the novel. James described the story as “a Cinderella story for the 21st 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.”
The book is scheduled to be released on April 16th. It is available for pre-order on Amazon now.
