About Brill Harper
Brill Harper is a pseudonym. Like...a secret identity. By day she's Clark Kent, writing romance books for young adults and grownups. By night, she's Brill Harper writing unfailingly filthy, yet super sweet books, that would make her alter ego blush.
She especially likes to writes book about quirky, awkward heroines and alpha bad boys. Well, except that they are really alphamallows once they fall in love. Seriously--these heroes only have one weakness, and it's sticky, sweet love. They don't let anything stand in the way of taking what belongs to them. Ooey-gooey marshmallow hearts in big, burly dominating dudes. What's not to love about that?
Brill's books are filthy/sweet for when you're in the mood for something a little over the top. Okay, a lot over the top. Sorry, not sorry.

Nerdy Penelope has never even been kissed. But that was before her hot college roommates offer to be her study buddies...in the bedroom.
It’s basically chiseled bodies, piercing eyes, strong hands, and testosterone twenty-four-seven at her house. Now she’s got two virile men giving her a very adult education, and the one thing she’s always been good at is being a star pupil. The best part is she doesn’t have to choose—she gets them both and can literally do anything she wants to them.
Except keep them.
Author Confession: You know and I know that I will only ever deliver you an HEA, so sit back and enjoy the sweet, filthy love story of a nerdy heroine and two hunky alphamallows. Let me know which one steals your heart more. I bet you can’t choose either.
Her summer of raw emotion and unbridled passion...
Bliss Camden didn’t know what she was signing up for when the employment agency sent her to the Wylder Colt Ranch as a live-in housekeeper for best friends and ranch owners, Levi Colt and Wylder Madison. The two rough, ready, and wild cowboys make her feel things she’s never felt before...things she shouldn’t feel about her employers. Wicked things.
Things they want to teach her all about.
It’s wrong. It’s primal. It’s delicious.
She’s not experienced enough to deal with one dominating cowboy, much less two. Besides, they’d never look twice at a frumpy wallflower like her...would they?
Author Confession: I see you, reader. I know what you want. Alphamallow heroes and awkward, nerdy heroines. It’s a ranch, so there might be roping, riding, and wrangling. Ahem. And the swords. They touch.
That’s when she starts coming in. Mousy, plump Annabelle Rogers, roommate of his co-worker. She brings her books to the pub and seems to do everything she can to stay invisible. So why does he keep noticing her?
One night, when a female patron is getting particularly handsy with him, he tells everyone that Annabelle is his girlfriend and kisses her in front of the whole bar. She has every right to be mad, but the mousy girl surprises him with a challenge: She’ll pretend to be his girlfriend to keep the women away if he agrees to help her with one little thing: losing her virginity.
With a catch.
He absolutely isn’t allowed to fall in love with her.
Author Confession: It’s a role reversal for the bartender to give the customer the tip, isn’t it? There’s also tapping, dry hopping, and some thick foamy head—it is a bar after all. But do you really think I could write an alphamallow who doesn’t fall head over heels for the mousy, plump girl? I think you all know me better than that by now. Let’s hear it for BBW love and blue collar heroes!

Wrong Number Text
The Right Stuff
So Wrong It's Right
Don't Get Me Wrong
So wrong it's right…
When grumpy firefighter Leo finally answers the wrong number text he's been getting for several days, he has no idea pixels on a screen could be so hot—or make him want things he's never wanted before.
Dixie has always been quiet, shy, and reserved. Until she "meets" Leo. He's got the once shy librarian shedding her inhibitions and growing her confidence in their texts and calls—and it even starts spilling out into her everyday life. Part of her revels in her secret life—but part of her secretly wishes for more.
They never share more than first names, but each texting encounter gets hotter and hotter—and more intimate than either of them ever imagined. But you can't trust a stranger on the phone. Not really. You can't ache for something you've never had. And you certainly can't fall in love with someone you've never even met, can you?
Author Confession: Welcome to Brazen Bay, a small town I crafted just to explore that feeling of so wrong it's right. Just because something is forbidden or taboo doesn't make it wrong, does it? (You'd have to see the pictures on their phones to answer that.) Gruff Leo and sweet Dixie are perfect strangers and perfectly naughty when they let their guards down with someone for the first time. What starts as an innocent wrong number turns into something much more daring. Bonus points if you read this wrong number romance on your phone.
He can’t deny his need to claim her as his…
After ten long months away on a dig, archaeology professor Dr. Nick Sanders comes home to Brazen Bay surprised his house is still standing since he left his irresponsible younger brother in charge. Tired, dirty, and hungry, he collapses into bed sans pajamas only to wake up wrapped around a luscious, fuming woman. She says she’s just the house-sitter and he pulled her into bed when she was trying to wake him up. He says he’s just found his future wife.
She’s off-limits—too young, too sweet, too innocent and a student at his university. But he’s one naughty professor who doesn’t care what the world says. She belongs with him.
Author Confession: This story goes back to my filthy, sweet roots readers have been asking for. Insta-love, a heaping dose of immediate OTT attraction, a wildly implausible (yet completely romantic) scenario, and enough alphamallow goodness to singe your eReader. Pick up this guilty indulgence about love so wrong it’s right. You know it’s got the tropes you love—older man/younger woman, bad professor, possessive hero, nerdy heroine, small-town romance, and what’s a Brazen Bay book without a cameo from Stella?
You won't miss billionaire heroes once you spend some time with these real men. Your book boyfriend is in here. Go get him.
Included in this Alphamallow Boxset are:
What the heck is an alphamallow?
That's the word Brill and her fans came up with to describe the heroes in her books. These guys are alpha to the core: virile, a little primal, and good with their hands. But when these hunky, strapping men fall for the loves of their lives, we discover they have ooey gooey marshmallow hearts. It's the best combination, right?
For readers who love cowboys, opposites attract, friends to lovers, instalove, and over the top steamy romance
What would you do if the boyfriend you totally made up to get your sister off your back showed up at your place of employment?
Free-spirited Stella Stone has always been the wild child in her family, but even she is surprised at the amount of trouble she's found herself in this time.
Christopher Lockwood was a random name she chose from the internet. How was she supposed to know he would end taking a temporary position in the veterinary office she manages? Now she somehow has to keep the uptight, tie-wearing, self-contained Christopher from figuring out that the whole town thinks they are dating, and somehow also keep the whole town from figuring out she's a pathetic liar with a fake boyfriend.
Oh, and it doesn't help that he's a major hottie under those Clark Kent glasses and stern demeanor. In fact, something about his need for control brings out Stella's inner brat, especially when he decides she needs a little discipline.
Too bad there's no such thing as a secret in Brazen Bay. Not for very long.
Author's Confession: This is the most opposite-y opposites attract book ever with added fake relationship crack. Stella is a fan favorite and Christopher is the Alpha Nerd Hero you didn't know you needed in your life. You are going to love the surprisingly dirty dude under the restrained and inhibited mask he shows the world. I mean unf, am I right? He's the only one who could keep up with our deliciously nutty Stella and give her a worthy HEA.

What kind of job are you prepared for with a degree in poetry?
None. That’s what socially awkward Tru Stanhope learns when she loses her fortune. Now she just needs to turn her one remaining asset profitable so she can afford business school--but the infuriatingly hot Nate McKendrick refuses to sell his half. And he thinks he can use all that alpha, growly hotness and the way he fills out his jeans to sway her opinion by taking her to bed. The joke’s on him--she’s glacier frigid. Just ask her ex...the bigamist who embezzled her inheritance.
She might highbrow and pretentious--but she is not frigid. And he can prove it.
Nate McKendrick liked his solitary life just fine before Tru brought trouble and her little yappy dog to darken his door. But he’s not a man to back down from a challenge, and his mousy little scholar needs a tutor in the worst...and best...way. He’ll show her how to find her confidence in bed, and then he’ll show her the door.
Author Confession: Opposites attract, and no one is more opposite than this grumpy blue collar hero and the snooty intellectual he can’t get rid of. His plan to scare her off with multiple...um...arrivals (if you know what I mean) doesn’t work quite the way he intends it to. Because once she figures out she’s not frigid after all? It’s game on.
I'm not the kind of guy you leave alone in your house. I'm especially not the kind you leave alone with your innocent daughter.
My newest client doesn't seem to care. He just wants his office remodeled.
His college-aged daughter isn't my usual type, but under those prim clothes and too big glasses, the sweet little bookworm hides a tight little body that's tempting AF.
I make her nervous. I should. I'm going to make her mine.
She doesn't know about men yet...
She's about to learn.
Dad's carpenter makes me feel things I don't understand.
I don't have any experience with older guys like him, or any guys really. They look at me and see a quiet nerd. But this bad boy—I feel like he sees right through me.
Like he knows the dirty fantasies that haunt my dreams. The things I do under the covers. He makes me needy and breathless.
But I'm shy and awkward—what do I have to offer a man like him?
Author's Confession: This book is super sweet, unfailingly filthy, and the heroine is nerdilicious. And who doesn't love a bad boy who's good with his hands? Very good with his hands. Very, very good. Brody is the Alphamallow you’ve been waiting for. If you like opposites attract, other side of the track, bad boy/good girl romances with instalove and over the top feelz, you’re in the right place.
Or it was.
I’m a retiring soldier, just got out, with no family of my own, and I reluctantly agreed to spend the holidays in picturesque Maple Grove to transition to life after the Army. I’m a drifter now and have no business getting involved with my buddy’s family—especially with his sweet little sister who pretends she’s frumpy and boring to ward off attention from men.
Men like me.
I have no plans for Emily other than being an extra brother for a week. That’s what I tell myself. I really should let her be, but the harder she tries to hide, the more determined I am to seek. Under those baggy clothes and plain, simple looks is a woman who deserves to know how desirable she is. She thinks I can have any woman I want.
And I want her.
Author's Confession: You must know by now that I love my tropes, right? Military romance, older man/younger woman, opposites attracting like whoa, small town, older brother's best friend, ugly duckling who's really a swan (though an introverted swan), holiday romance complete with snow, Santa suits, and caroling during a fight scene. Oh, and pudding. Let's get figgy with it.
I'm in over my head with these kids, but I'm all the family they have left after my sister and her husband were killed. I'm a bricklayer, what do I know about twin baby girls? Nothing. Thank God for the sweet girl-next-door.
But she's a blessing and a curse.
I've practically moved the poor girl in to help me care for these babies, but playing house is stirring up all kinds of feelings that should never see the light of day. I know she's got a crush on me, but what I want to do to her body would crush her innocence forever.
She's too sweet, too innocent, and way too young for a perv like me.
Mr. Webster is trying so hard to do the right thing and take care of everyone. But who takes care of him? I know under normal circumstances I would hardly even register on his radar, but lately, when he looks at me, I feel like there's more between us than there should be. Maybe more than he wants.
He works so hard. Provides for his nieces. Makes sure I'm a happy babysitter. But he's so tense. So unhappy.
I want to give him something.
Something he wants. Something he needs. Something no man has ever had before.
Author's Confession: Writing this series is like eating candy for dinner. I'm like...sorry, not sorry. Conner is the book boyfriend you want in your life. I promise. And if you ever had a crush on the DILF while babysitting, this book is for you.
