E L James, whose Fifty Shades of Grey series has broken sales records for adult publishing (150 million copies sold worldwide), is back with The Mister, a contemporary romance set in London, Cornwall, and Eastern Europe. The Misterintroduces readers to the privileged and aristocratic young Englishman Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. His biggest challenge is fighting his desire for an unexpected, enigmatic young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Can Maxim protect her from the malevolence that threatens her? And what will she do when she learns that he’s been hiding secrets of his own? From the heart of London through wild, rural Cornwall to the bleak, forbidding beauty of the Balkans, The Misteris a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page.
About E L James
E L James is an incurable romantic and a self-confessed fangirl. After 25 years of working in television, she decided to pursue a childhood dream and write stories that readers could take to their hearts. The result was the controversial and sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed. In 2015, she published the #1 bestseller Grey, the story of Fifty Shades of Grey from the perspective of Christian Grey, and in 2017, the chart-topping Darker, the second part of the Fifty Shades story from Christian’s point of view. Her books have been published in fifty languages and have sold more than 150 million copies worldwide. With one of the largest fan followings in all of publishing, James has been recognized as one of Time magazine’s “Most Influential People in the World” and Publishers Weekly’s “Person of the Year.” 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). The Fifty Shades of Grey films, which James co-produced for Universal Studios, realized more than $1 billion in global box office, with the latest movie, Fifty Shades Freed, winning the People’s Choice Award for Drama in 2018.
