New York Times Bestselling Author EL James Present...

Presented by Anderson's Bookshops at Anderson's Bookshop Naperville

Author E.L. James took the world by storm in 2015 when her provocative contemporary romance, Fifty Shades of Grey, hit the bestseller lists. Since then, James has moved on to incredible success with the subsequent titles in the Shades of Grey trilogy and three blockbuster films of the books.

Remaining on the New York Times bestseller list for 133 consecutive weeks, Fifty Shades of Grey became a true cultural phenomenon. And this spring, James visits from her London area home to share her latest book, The Mister. It’s the story of an incredibly wealthy aristocrat and a young woman with secrets of her own. The combustible passion between them and the mystery and danger that builds carries the reader across Great Britain.

To celebrate her new book, James will meet the public at a signing line only event at Anderson’s Bookshop, 123 W. Jefferson Ave. in the heart of Naperville.

About the Book: Fans will clamor for the passionate new romance from E.L. James, author of the phenomenal #1 bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogy.

London, 2019. Life has been easy for Maxim Trevelyan. With his good looks, aristocratic connections, and money, he’s never had to work and he’s rarely slept alone. But all that changes when tragedy strikes and Maxim inherits his family’s noble title, wealth, and estates, and all the responsibility that entails. It’s a role he’s not prepared for and one that he struggles to face.

But 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 Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page. (Age range: Adult)

About the Author: After 25 years working in TV, E.L. James decided to pursue her childhood dream, and set out to write stories that readers would fall in love with. The result was the sensuous romance Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, a trilogy that went on to sell more than 150 million copies worldwide in 52 languages. In 2015 she published the best seller Grey, the story of Fifty Shades of Grey from the perspective of Christian Grey.

In 2012, James was named one of Time magazine’s “Most Influential People in the World,” one of Barbara Walters’s “Ten Most Fascinating People of the Year,” and Publishers Weekly’s “Person of the Year.” She went on to work as a producer on the film adaptations of her trilogy for Universal Pictures; Fifty Shades of Grey, the film, broke box-office records all over the world in 2015. Its 2017 sequel, Fifty Shades Darker, proved equally popular with fans of Ana and Christian’s story, and the concluding film, Fifty Shades Freed, will be released in 2018.

James lives with her husband, the novelist and screenwriter Niall Leonard, their two sons, and their two dogs in West London, where she is working on new novels and movie projects.
