The Spark by Sylvie Stewart

Sylvie Stewart is an author of Romance and Romantic Comedy. Like the characters in her books, North Carolina is where Sylvie calls home these days, and she can’t get over how awesome NC is! She and her husband love arguing over which of them is the funniest. It’s usually a tie (or so she lets him think). When she’s not writing, she can be found hanging out with her husband and kids or reading, Romance being her favorite genre, of course. And she knows that life wouldn’t be worth living without a lot of laughter, friends, and wine!

Sylvie is currently releasing The Spark, which is the second book in her Carolina Connections Series which follows couples as they meet and fall in love. Each book in the series is a standalone with a HEA.

The first book in the series is The Fix and was released in June of 2016.

Sylvie's writing touches on relatable topics and her characters are down-to-earth and believable. With a bunch of humor and some steam added in, her books make for easy and fun reads. One of her favorite reviews sums her style up perfectly. The reader commented, “I was alternately laughing and ‘awww-ing’ the whole time!”

About the Book

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?

Find out in The Spark by Sylvie Stewart.

The Spark is the second book in the Carolina Connections Series from Sylvie Stewart. Each book can be read as a standalone with a HEA.

This book contains adult language and sexual content inappropriate for readers under 18.

Keep reading for an excerpt from the author:


“Shortcake, I can actually hear you thinking, you’re doing it so hard,” I said as I pulled into a parking spot a block away from her building.

She scoffed and released her seatbelt. “For your information, I was thinking about my mother,” she lied – poorly.


“Yes, as a matter of fact.”

I let that sit for a minute while I went around and helped her out of the truck. Her hand wasn’t shaking as it had been when we’d gotten to the restaurant, but she was definitely flustered.

“So, were you thinking about how to tell your mother about the guy you’re about to invite up to your bed?”

That earned me an indignant gasp and an arm punch. Totally worth it.

While she was busy assaulting me, I cut in with, “Because if that’s the case, you won’t have much to say. You can, however, tell her about the guy who took you to dinner because he likes you and enjoys your company. The same guy who is going to walk you to your door and kiss you goodnight – and then, tomorrow, he’ll call and ask for another date. That guy, you can tell her about.”

I don’t know that I’ve ever actually seen a person sputter, but that is the best way to describe the sounds that came out of Fiona’s mouth at that moment. I may have done the impossible and rendered her speechless. I pulled her along the sidewalk while she tried to recover. This time she didn’t even attempt pulling away.
