Mike’s life is carefully compartmentalized. He’s deep in the closet to his family in Kansas, but lives life honestly and openly in Austin. He’s unnerved when Wes, his old university crush, turns up at his door in answer to a roommate advertisement, but quickly sees the potential…benefits of the arrangement. Wes has never doubted nor denied his sexuality. With the support of his family he’s an out and proud LGBT activist.
On the scale balancing his self-esteem on one side, and the love of his family on the other, Mike has to decide which weighs more. Is Mike being fair to his parents by not giving them the chance to know his real self? When the delicate balance of his life is disrupted, he decides he’s tired of living a lie. Will Wes understand his concerns, or will their fledgling relationship crumble under the strain of Mike’s uncertainty?
“This is a sweet and tender love story that’s a bit new adult and a lot coming out. It had a good emotional punch, despite the stakes being seemingly low.” ~ “In all, this is an enjoyable read with solid characters and a story arc that had feel-good written all over it.”
—Veronica, Joyfully Jay
“If I’m ever asked to recommend a book for a straight person’s first time reading MM, this would be a great intro.” ~ “If you want a low-key, sweet and simple romance, this could be just the ticket.”
—Natalie, Hearts on Fire Reviews
“This was a quick read, with good bones and enjoyable characters. It has an epilogue that gives you a look at Mike and Wes a few months later so you can get an idea of their HEA. It looks like there’s going to be another book to come that will tie into this one and I’m interested in reading it!”

The Contingency Plan
Plans Series: Book 1
Novelette / 8,040 Words / MM Light Fantasy Romance
Amazon Universal Link: myBook.to/ContingencyPlan_AA
A sheltered prince. A sudden death. An unexpected choice. How will Prince Marcelo react to discovering he’s The Contingency Plan?
For eighteen years, there has been peace between Sheburat and the kingdom of Zioneven. The untimely death of a princess throws the marriage arrangement—the final phase to complete the terms of the treaty—into disarray, and the contingency plan is put into motion. Now the Crown Prince of Zioneven gets to make his own choice from among the princess’s younger siblings.
As a rare royal son in the matriarchal sovereignty of Sheburat, Prince Marcelo grew up knowing he would never marry. Never. Royal sons did not marry. Period. Except, Prince Efren isn’t from Sheburat, and he has other plans.
“What I liked about this story is that it didn’t try to fit a lifetime into a few words. The author picked one event and ran with it. The way Prince Marcelo is enlightened and finds awe in new knowledge gave him a delightful innocence. The story itself gave me a period of lovely escapism.”
—Freya, Sinfully MM Book Reviews
“This story is just a little gem! I loved Marcelo and Zefren and the way they regarded each other and came together with mutual respect.”
—Sadonna, The Novel Approach
“Short and sweet this was a nice read to take a break to and while it will always be nice to see what happens next, I’m quite happy with how the story left off. If you’re looking for a quick read without any angst, I’d recommend giving this one a look.”
—Sarina, Love Bytes Reviews
“I really, really enjoyed this short story. Marcelo was specially endearing, and I loved his kindness and empathy, combined with an open thirst for knowledge.”
—Min, Min and Her Books
“I found The Contingency Plan to be a very sweet story. I think part of the reason it works is that rather than trying to shove too much into it, the author focuses on two pivotal days in Marcelo’s life.”
—Angela, Wicked Reads
“I’m rather impressed that the world this story is set in has come to life for me, despite the fact that the short story format didn’t allow for extensive descriptions and explanations. With just a few words the author managed to explain both Marcelo’s matriarchal society and Efren’s more traditional (by our standards) country.”
—Helena, The Way She Reads
“The Contingency Plan may be short in pages but it’s words are full of heart. I fell in love with Prince Marcelo and his sheltered life immediately and wanted him to find his HEA.”
—Heather, Padme’s Library
The Faction Series: Book 1
Novella / 22,181 Words / MM Paranormal Romance
Amazon Universal Link: mybook.to/Recruit_AA
Albert Manlii has walked this earth for more than two thousand years, but survival on his own was never easy. Now he leads a faction of highly organized vampires who carefully guard the secret of their existence. Unlike the old days, potential recruits are carefully selected and presented with an offer.
Phillip Brewer has weeks to live—if he lets his disease run its course. He doesn’t want to die, but given a choice, will his desire to live outweigh his concerns about the vampires’ ethics?
When the new recruit’s missteps are cause for concern, can Albert control the fallout, or will Phillip’s life once again be torn apart?
“I found The Recruit to be different and interesting and I thoroughly enjoyed it.”
—ButtonsMom2003, Xtreme Delusions
“The world building in this story is very detailed and well thought out.” ~ “The Recruit is an enjoyable story, and I hope we haven’t seen the last of this world as I’d love to read more about it.”
—Anne Barwell, Drops of Ink
“Albright does not allow her imagination to be confined by tropes in The Recruit and it is a enjoyable story that I would recommend.”
—Kirsty, Joyfully Jay
“The author has taken the same old staid vampire mythos/legend/trope/whatever and turned it inside out, upside down, put it through a complete overhaul, and then wove it back together into a fresh, new, original, fantastic, fascinating and definitely different tale. I was completely hooked from cover to cover.”
