About the author

 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 wrote throughout elementary and high school, first composing novels featuring favorite TV and music personalities, and then venturing into sports writing.

Attending UGA’s journalism school launched her career in public relations, which included an internship with the Atlanta Flames NHL hockey team. With the encouragement of a writers group on twitter—WritersThatChat—This Piece of My Heart, a hockey romance, and the first book in Robyn’s series Clearing the Ice was published May 2016. The second book in the series, This Piece of My Soul, published January 2017 introduces the Tampa Suns professional hockey team. This Piece of Our Being (December 2017) concludes the trilogy.

Besides writing, Robyn’s passions include following the New York Rangers, NASCAR, and the Atlanta Braves; splitting time between homes in Atlanta and Palm Coast, and visiting Paris as often as possible. Two brilliant Westies rule both homes.


As do many writers, Robyn chooses to write using a pseudonym—hers is a combination of her sons’ names, a contribution from her youngest nephew.

What readers say:


"I loved this trilogy. Being a sports fan made me love it more. I love the characters as they develop during the books and all the obstacles that they had to overcome. Robyn M. Ryan NAILED IT with this book as well as the other two books. Can't wait for her next trilogy. DEFINITE READ!!"....

"This has been one of my favorite hockey romance series I have read. This whole series has been a wonderful read and the conclusion was the perfect ending. This book brings back all the love from the first book and adds a new layer to a wonderful hockey couple. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of hockey romance or is just wants to try it out. I stayed up late to finish the book because I had to know how it ended!"...

"Robyn does such a fantastic job of bringing the characters to life and making them relatable. After three books, these characters seem like family and I was thoroughly invested in them—even the secondary characters. (Would love follow-up stories about Lauren and/or Tom!) This was just the perfect way to wrap up Caryn and Andrew's story! Loved, loved, loved it!"...

"Sorry to see this series end, I have enjoyed Caryn and Andrew's love story and their journey. All three books have been well written and I fell in love with the characters; I feel like they are family. This book has lots of feelings and emotions as well as joy. I love hockey player romance stories, and this one had all the great elements including the actual hockey piece. Easy to recommend this great series it has it all."



This Piece of My Heart


She wasn’t looking for love.


Struggling to live up to the high expectations of overprotective parents and a hefty family name, Caryn Stevens only wants one Summer of Fun before focusing on finishing her college degree. She knows her destiny: to follow her dad as CEO of his multi-billion dollar business. But that plan changes forever one day when she runs into sexy and single professional hockey player, Andrew Chadwick


But love came looking for her.


Sparks instantly fly between the two, and Caryn can’t resist his charms as she discovers that Andrew has a reputation of winning – both on and off the ice. One of the most eligible singles in Toronto  Andrew could have any woman he wants, and he’s got Caryn in sights. But, when Caryn’s parents disapprove of the match and threaten to disinherit her and his hockey team trades him to a new city, it may take more than love for the couple to survive this penalty play.



This Piece of My Soul


They believe love conquers all…


Pro hockey’s golden couple, Andrew and Caryn Chadwick bask in their love, and the limelight reserved for elite professional athletes. An opportunity leads them to a new team in a new city. Neither foresees an event that challenges their love, threatens their marriage


Until it doesn’t.

A life-threatening accident rocks their very core. Shattered by the incident, paralyzed with fear,  Caryn can’t provide the support Andrew needs. Distrust, fears, and secrets construct walls. Each makes choices that take them further apart.


This Piece of My Soul follows the joint and separate paths the couple navigate as each hopes to rediscover the love that can conquer all.
