Piper McCracken needs a fresh start. Her father’s death, a failed engagement, and her ex-fiancé-turned-stalker prompt her to make a bold leap . . . from the Windy City to Fortuna, Texas. Piper feels ready to take on small town life—that is, until she’s erroneously proclaimed a shy cowboy’s mail-order bride.

Hired as a personal assistant to Jessie Barnes, Piper becomes much

I'm living Fortuna and the cast of characters who live here! This story has you laughing, giggling, and rooting on our couple. It has everything a romance should have including men reading romance stories and a lot of blushing. A definite must read!!

Overview: All hell breaks loose when Piper McCraken arrives in Fortuna, looking for a fresh start after her life takes a turn for the worse. Piper is still reeling from the effects of a broken engagement, but Big Deal ranch-hand, Cole Dart, just can’t seem to get the diminutive firecracker off his mind, especially since Fate keeps pushing the pair together.

Author Rochelle Bradley pens a rollicking romantic comedy in “Plumb Twisted”, her second chapter in the Fortuna, Texas Novel series with high
What a fun and awesome book!! I loved every bit of it!! Piper and Cole (two of my favorite names) are two just-wild-enough characters in a plot filled with ups and downs. They are perfect for one another though far be it from them to admit the truth about how they feel! It was a perfect romance, filled with all kinds of feels, humor and just the right amount of embarrassment. Their backgrounds were so realistic that I just loved what a great couple they became over the course of the storyline. T ...more

Wow! This book might even be better than the first one in the series! MIGHT!! Icouldn’t get enough of Pipers story and how Cole and her blossomed into such a beautiful couple. Both Piper and Coles back stories made for a very interesting and realistic romance novel. I can’t wait for the next book I’ve been hooked since Jessie and Josiah. If you love romance novels that are realistic where people don’t just fall over each other in love right away these books are for you.

Plumb Twisted

Plumb Twisted is the second book in the Fortuna, Texas series and you will laugh, sigh, and believe in love again. The men in this town believe in romance and spend their spate time reading romance novels so they can please their women. These are godfearing, hard working men and women who you would love to know. Character development and story line are spot on and you will not be able to put this book down. Cole and Piper are evenly matched and they will soon become your favorite bo

I can definitely hear Rochelle's voice in this second book, though it is not as funny as the first. I quickly came to care for Piper, and relate to her, in her strength and no-nonsense attitude, even when it caused her to do dumb things. At first I thought she was going to hook up with Dakota, but then came Cole. Just my type of hero-a little Mr. Darcy-ish in his desire (Ha!) to stay out of a relationship. Luckily, Cole's vulnerabilities come out better than Darcy's and he is really personable. ...more

More fun in Fortuna!

If you liked Rochelle Bradley's debut novel, "The Double D Ranch", you are going to love "Plumb Twisted!" Bradley has taken her recipe for humor and romance and kicked it up a notch by adding another layer of depth and emotion to her already engaging style. Don't worry, though. "Plumb Twisted" offers up plenty of Bradley's trademark puns and double entendres. However, this installment to the Fortuna, Texas Novel series balances the laugh out loud humor with touching interacti

Another great book it's funny with a twist of romance. Just like the first one the Double D Ranch it was a great read and nearly impossible to put down I literally fell asleep reading it. Finished each book in a day they're that good. A must read very well written and the humor is an added plus to these books. ...more

While very suspenseful, Cole and Piper's story is hilarious. I love the pun intended names of the town folk. Fortuna holds lots of great stories to come, and I'm looking forward to them. ...more

I loved Cole and Piper. Cole is so protective of Piper from the very first time he meets her even though he doesn't know how much danger she is about to be in. They both feel the electricity between them but try to deny it. Piper is a very strong woman except when it comes to her ex who is stalking her. How will she deal with Justin this time with the help from Cole and everyone in this small town that love her already?

Rochelle wrote it perfectly how it feels to be stalked by someone. The fear t

I loved it !!!!!!!!!! Piper and Cole are perfect for each other even thought they won't admite their attraction for the other. I enjoyed the first book in this series so much but I really belive that this one is the best so far, but I'll be waiting for the next book to reserve my judgement on them all. But Rochelle Bradley's stories are sweet, steamy, shows the ups and downs of loving someone and even have a villian we all love to hate. ...more

A great follow up story with the characters from the Double D Ranch.
I enjoyed the story and the characters, the author’s wonderful play on words for the character’s names is fantastic.
The troubles Piper and Cole go through to be together is fun but frustrating when all sorts of things are put in their way to finding true love.

Rochelle puts an artistic spin on everything she does but there are two things she fails at miserably:
1. Cooking (seriously, she can burn water)
2. Sewing (buttons immediately fall back off)

She loves baking and makes a mean BTS (Better than Sex) cake. When in observation mode she is quiet, however, her mouth is usually open with an encouraging glass-is-half-full pun or, quite possibly, her foot.
