She no longer believes that love conquers all.  He questions his convictions.  Alone, each faces an uncertain future.

However, Fate has other ideas.

Just as Fate placed their lives on a collision course five years ago, Andrew and Caryn Chadwick’s paths cross once again in Toronto after a four-month separation. Despite Andrew’s assurances that he wants to repair their marriage, Caryn is wary, not certain she can trust him, and struggles with doubts and questions about his relationship with a member of his Rehab Team. Wracked with guilt, Andrew questions his determination to return to the Tampa Suns hockey team, and he seeks to convince Caryn their marriage will survive.

Fate intervenes with a gift at the worst possible moment.

Caryn can hide this secret for only a short time, but is Andrew capable of pushing his needs aside when he discovers the truth? Can she risk her heart and soul once again? This Piece of Our Being follows Andrew’s and Caryn’s journeys through a fragile reconciliation. Both vow to place honesty at the center of their future. But, will the secrets revealed heal their marriage or drive them further apart?

The conclusion to the Clearing the Ice trilogy, This Piece of Our Being delivers Andrew and Caryn’s Happily Ever After, but the path to reconciliation is rocky and missteps prove costly.

We’ve got it! Available US/CA/UK



This Piece of My Soul

They believe love conquers all.

One of pro-hockey’s golden couples, Andrew and Caryn Chadwick live in the limelight reserved for elite professional athletes. On their second anniversary, Andrew receives an unexpected contract offer to join the Tampa Suns. As they look forward to a new adventure, neither foresees an event that challenges their love and threatens their marriage.

Until the day it doesn’t. 

**Although This Piece of My Soul is the second book in the Clearing the Ice Series, it can be read as a standalone novel.**




By the time she was an eight-year-old tomboy growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Robyn M Ryan definitely knew what she wanted to do when she grew up—play major league baseball or write. She toyed with playing hockey, but a move to Atlanta a couple years later dashed that hope. Back then, baseball and softball leagues did not exist for girls; she still loved baseball and hockey, but those career dreams crumpled. Her love of writing grew throughout grade school and high school, first composing novels based on favorite television shows and favorite musicians. Fan fiction didn’t exist, so these stories passed among friends and then landed in a trunk.

Attending the University of Georgia’s journalism school launched a career in public relations. An internship with Atlanta’s first-ever professional hockey team, the Flames, reignited the love of hockey. At the same time, a successful recovery from the life-long addiction to the Chicago Cubs fans’ belief that the team would win another World Series, led to a decades-long love affair with the Braves.


This Piece of My Heart delivers a sweet love story that still sizzles — a must-read for anyone looking for the perfect happily-ever-after.

A nice, sweet romance!

I never felt that the sports aspect took over the whole book as some sports romances do. Cary and Drew have such good chemistry going for them. Plenty of feel-good vibes with this one!

No spoilers from me! Just a great read a real page turner. Just sit and read it! It was a non stop read for me. I enjoyed it and would recommend it as a gift for Mum on mothers day or as a great beach read. Going to keep in my library to re-read over and over.


Truly Loved This Book!

Caryn and Andrew met when Caryn literally ran into Andrew. Caryn, a college student, and no idea that Andrew was a professional hockey player. I loved watching them fall in love. They sure didn’t have it easy, with Caryn’s very controlling father, Andrew going to a different hockey team in a different country, and Caryn being dedicated to graduating college. I can not wait for the next book to find out if Caryn and Andrew will get their HEA. Thank you so much, Robyn Ryan, for such a wonderful book!

OMG LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH! I couldn’t put this book down. I loved Caryn and Andrew so much and from the start. I can feel all the emotion that they go through. I can’t wait for book two.


Robyn is a new writer and I was asked to review the book for her. I enjoyed it. First, she has done an excellent editing job and the reading was smooth and easy. Then the book itself is a fun read. I enjoyed the side story line of hockey, I knew very little about it and found it interesting. The romance is sweet and has a good build and a good pop. The background of Canada was enjoyable and the complications of both of the character’s background was well written. I will go ahead and pay full price for the book when it comes out and I will put up a flag to notify me of her next work.
I suggest the book and think you will enjoy it for a nice relaxing weekend read.


You can tell the author really did her homework and did a great job incorporating sports facts into the romance. If you are looking for a fun read during your summer vacation, this is a definite must read!


I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. Incredible story, it’s well written and engrossing with complex characters and an interesting storyline. I was left disappointed at the end though. The story doesn’t wrap up at the end, it leaves you hanging. It’s a great story worth reading.

This book is a sweet love story about a hot hockey player and an innocent college student. There is insta-love, but there were will struggles. I liked this book a lot and look forward to the next book in this series.


Great writing, I loved it! Melissa
