He wants out of the friend zone…she doesn’t believe in happily ever after.


Relationships are not in Lauren Gentry’s playbook. The only kind she’s willing to consider are friends-with-benefits and even a red-hot and sexy hockey player like Dave Martin isn’t going to change that. Right?


When those chocolate brown eyes threaten to melt her defenses she has to remind herself that her demons from her past could rise up at any moment. Which is going to be pretty hard to do, since she loses herself every time they touch.


Dave used to love the benefits that came easily to professional athletes; especially when they were in the form of puck bunnies who only wanted one night. But when he meets the pint-sized girl with bewitching green eyes and sun-streaked auburn hair his outlook suddenly changes. 


He wants forever with Lauren. Now he just has to convince her.


Can Lauren risk everything for the man she’s secretly been falling for? Or will her past stop her from taking a chance on love?

From the author of This Piece of My Heart and This Piece of My Soul,
the conclusion to Andrew and Caryn’s journey, and to the Clearing the Ice trilogy

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.
