The author of the blockbuster "Fifty Shades of

Grey" novels is returning with a new, erotic book that she calls a

"Cinderella romance for the 21st century."

Called "The Mister," the novel by British author

E.L. James will be published in Britain and North America on April 16,

publishers Vintage Books said on Thursday.

The story, set in London and Eastern Europe, centers on an

aristocratic Englishman who falls for a mysterious, musically gifted young

woman who has recently arrived in England, the publishers said.

"I’m so excited to finally get this passionate new

romance out into the world," James said in a statement. "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."

James's "Fifty Shades" trilogy, featuring bondage,

discipline, dominance, submission and sadomasochism (BDSM), was first published

in 2012 and shot to the top of best-seller lists around the world with 150

million copies sold.

The novels were made into three movies for Universal

Pictures that took more than $1 billion at the global box office but the

so-called "mommy porn" that drew a mainstream female audience also

provoked a debate about the lines between erotica and emotional or sexual


There was no word on Thursday on whether "The

Mister" would be adapted for a movie, with neither Universal nor Vintage,

a unit of Penguin Random House, responding to queries on whether the screen

rights had been sold.
