(Newser) – For those of you insufficiently horrified by the soulless shark-eyed exercise in unscintillating existential pain that was Fifty Shades Freed, EL James is back for any remnants of your soul. This time, the woman who turned Twilight fan-fiction into a bazillion-dollar trilogy is putting out an "erotic love story" called The Mister. You guessed it: A rich guy who "has rarely slept alone." This about that, courtesy of the AP:

  • Per the publisher: "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 owns) little more than a dangerous and troublesome past."
  • Per James herself: "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."
The book is due out in April 16. (Read more EL James stories.)
