Love and Loyalty (and other tales), is Maria Savva's second collection of short stories. This is a diverse collection of stories, written over a period of ten years.

These are thought-provoking, memorable tales of life and love, luck and loss, deceit and lies, the unexpected and the true to life.

What they're saying about it:

"A fabulous collection of stories that unearth the many facets of the human condition. They made me laugh, cry and certainly surprised me. Each story has a great hook and pulls you in until the end and have an easy to read style. The characters are believable and some are extremely 'funny to watch', not least due to the clever 'one-liners'. All of us can relate in one way or another." --Review by Julie Elizabeth Powell, author of 'Gone'

Set in London, in the noughties, sometime after the smoking ban, and before the great 21st century recession... James has always believed in happy ever after, and he plans to get there one day. He is doing okay. At the age of thirty-three, he has a top job, dream house, two healthy children, and a wife who always stands by him. These things, James can rely on, until one day, when everything changes, and he realises that he has spent so long looking towards the future, that he has neglected the present. Feeling unloved, his wife, Pamela, has left him, leaving nothing but a brief note. She has taken their two children. How far will James go to save his marriage? What can Pamela do to stop the past haunting her life? Will it be enough?

What they're saying about it:

"Had your fill of romantic fiction/chocolate shop stories and city life for country life stories?Then 'Second Chances' by Maria Savva could be just the ticket!

Dealing with modern relationships, so real (spooky at times). No doubt it will strike a cord with quite a few readers. At times I wanted to cry... At others so so funny... Maria has written in a way that you feel as though you know the characters, not just as characters in a book, but as friends, as Maria portrays her characters with such emotion and feelings...everyone deserves a read of 'Second Chances'.Review by Top 100 reviewer Alessi Lover C.A.D.--
