When your back is against the wall, can you change the person life’s experiences have molded you to be?
Fiona Pierce is many things to many people. Dutiful daughter to her loving parents, fiercely loyal friend to her very tolerant bestie, half-assed employee to her laundry list of bosses, and dedicated fashion goddess and spreader of good cheer to the world at large. But Fiona is hiding something behind her irresistible smile – something she’s determined to keep to herself.
Mark Beckett doesn’t do complicated. Saddled with lingering baggage from his childhood, Mark sails through life one girl at a time – with frequent gym breaks in between. He likes his life just how it is and doesn’t see any need to change his work-hard/play-hard attitude.
When an unexpected blast from the past threatens to turn his family's life upside down, Mark finds help in the unlikeliest of places – specifically the pint-sized princess who has a knack for pushing his buttons.
Can you overcome your fears and embrace the happiness you might just deserve? And, perhaps more importantly, can you really fall in love with someone who is so damn insufferable?

THE REVIEWS ARE IN:
"Fun, fulfilling and fast-paced, Sylvie Stewart's latest book, The Spark, is also a masterclass in how to write a strong, sexy heroine with a hint of vulnerability that a reformed playboy hero simply can't resist." - After the Rain Comes Sunshine Blog
"I'm not sure where to start! This was such a fun read, I giggled almost all the way through this book with a few aww moments thrown in with some tears. This is a must read then reread and then maybe just one more time type of story. The characters are so adorable you can't help but smile at their craziness. I wish they were real so we could hang out all the time, I'm sure my face would hurt from all the laughing but it would so totally be worth it. Grab yourself a copy and enjoy the ride, you won't be disappointed!" - Loves Great Reads Blog
"The Spark is a fun-filled and entertaining novel that left me feeling satisfied! [Sylvie Stewart] clearly has a knack for bringing her characters to life and making us want to get to know them on a deeper and personal level." - Pretty Little Book Reviews
"...interesting and realistic romance story which was well written and had great dialogues between the fun characters. Once I started reading, I didn't want to stop." - Chantal Bellehumeur, Author of Past Lives
"It's romantic comedy at its best. The pacing makes this a lightning fast read, yet it did not feel rushed at all. The dialogue zings and the characters have a good amount of depth to them." - Vikki Vaught, Author of The Montgomery Family Trilogy

Award-winning author Sylvie Stewart is addicted to Romantic Comedy and Contemporary Romance, and she’s not looking for a cure. She hails from the great state of North Carolina, so it’s no surprise that her books are all set in the Tar Heel state. She’s a wife to a hilarious dude, and mommy to nine-year-old twin boys who tend to take after their father in every way. Sylvie often wonders if they’re actually hers, but then she remembers being a human incubator for a gazillion months. Ah, good times.
Sylvie began publishing when her kids started elementary school, and she loves sharing her stories with readers and hopefully making them laugh and swoon a bit along the way. If she’s not in her comfy green writing chair, she’s probably camping or kayaking with her family or having a glass of wine while binge-watching Hulu. Or she’s been kidnapped—so what are you doing just sitting there?!!
