NEW YORK (AP) — Another self-published erotic hit has found a major publisher.

St. Martin's Press announced Tuesday that it had acquired Sara Fawkes' "Anything He Wants (Dominated by the Billionaire)," which has appeared on the best-seller lists of Amazon.com and USA Today since the first of five planned e-installments came out in May. St. Martin's will release the fifth volume in September, then issue all five books in print and electronically in November.

The plot might ring a bell for "50 Shades of Grey" fans: The sexed up adventures of a billionaire CEO and an office temp. "50 Shades" was originally self-published by E.L. James and has sold millions of copies since being acquired by Vintage Books in the spring.
