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.
A LITTLE ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Photos by Nino Muñoz
I’m a former TV executive, wife and mother-of-two based in the leafy suburbs of West London. I have been writing romantic fiction since 2009 and in 2012 my career took an extraordinary turn when my Fifty Shades Trilogy became a worldwide bestseller and subsequently a series of blockbuster movies.
From an early age, I had dreamed of writing stories that readers would fall in love with—and now those dreams have come true, thanks to you guys. I hope that you take my new story The Mister to your heart just as you did Fifty Shades.
Thanks to all of you for your support—it has meant the world to me. If anyone were to ask me what lessons I’ve learned from my crazy adventures, I would say this: Life is not a dress rehearsal—seize the day and follow your dreams.
I wish you the best of luck.
