The first book in this new series follows Briley Anderson, a young CPA who works for one client, a law firm, in beautiful San Francisco. Her life is full, her hopes for a future with her fiancé, Jason, seems within reach. However, Briley struggles daily with her mother's advancing Alzheimer's Disease, and the declining income from the family Christmas tree farm in Lurry, Oregon. When Ryker Davis makes overtures to buy her family legacy, Briley informs the rancher she has no intentions of selling to him or anyone else.

Time for No One is a romance fiction that is complicated. Author Lynne Anders sets her story worlds apart: a condo on Nob Hill in San Francisco and a Christmas tree farm in rural Oregon, where she develops her characters as imperfect, but relatable, heroes and heroines. An outrageous proposition by a mysterious suitor and a fiancé with equally mysterious motives, with secrets of his own, plague and seduce Anders' main character in a mesmerizing tale. These intriguing characters need another book.
Briley and Ryker have fallen in love. Ryker no longer wishes to completely destroy her tree farm, and has devised an alternative plan to pay off her father's Promissory Note to the Davis family.
Briley suffers a traumatic attack, and seeks counsel to quell her anxiety and fear. Ryker, constantly by her side, offers comfort and love. Although if appears helpful, he suffers himself and takes the blame for not getting to her in time.
Then, there's Jason. Still disturbed Briley has broken off their engagement, he attempts to wheedle his way back into her life, one way or the other.
Ryker follows Briley to San Francisco, where she's working again, in an effort to thwart Jason and his repeated advances, and attempts to win back the woman he's loved for years.
Find out who wins the heart of Briley Anderson and discover the ultimate plan Ryker presents to save, not only his dude ranch, but Briley's family Christmas tree farm as well.
Finished my first round edits, and have returned the MS to my editor for the second. Oh boy! Had lots to cover. Hopefully, my responses were up to par. Book 2 is still scheduled to be released in August. Fingers crossed!!
The third book opens a few months after the end of the second with Briley in Portland working for a CPA firm. She and Ryker are still engaged, but have no current plans for a wedding. With her attacker behind bars, the possibility of a trial has vanished... for now.
Follow along as Briley and Ryker, once again, deal with unimaginable issues and forge their way toward their happily ever after.
I wrote throughout November and have about half of this book completed. I did have to toss it to the side for a month or so because I did receive my first edit back on Time for No One. I'm finally back at it, but it will be a slow go. The second books, I'm afraid, will require my time soon.
This story has reinvented itself. And, I love the turn its taken. I hope you do as well.
