5 kisses from Gabbi at Top2Bottom Reviews:
To Love a Traitor is a unique and truly lovely romance that will live in your heart long after you’ve finished the book. I loved every minute I spent reading it and look forward to reading more historical romances by JL Merrow in the future – Highly Recommended
Wounds of the heart take the longest to heal.
When solicitor’s clerk George Johnson moves into a rented London room in the winter of 1920, it’s with a secret goal: to find out if his fellow lodger, Matthew Connaught, is the wartime traitor who cost George’s adored older brother his life.
Yet as he gets to know Matthew—an irrepressibly cheerful ad man whose missing arm hasn’t dimmed his smile—George begins to lose sight of his mission.
As Matthew’s advances become ever harder to resist, George tries to convince himself his brother’s death was just the luck of the draw, and to forget he’s hiding a secret of his own. His true identity—and an act of conscience that shamed his family.
But as their mutual attraction grows, so does George’s desperation to know the truth about what happened that day in Ypres. If only to prove Matthew innocent—even if it means losing the man he’s come to love.
Contains larks in the snow, stiff upper lips, shadows of the Great War, and one man working undercover while another tries to lure him under the covers.

Note: To Love a Traitor is a novel-length expansion of my previously published novella, Dulce et Decorum Est, with a substantial reworking of the storyline. I’m really excited about this new edition: it’s got added spies & traitors, a cast of secondary characters I love even if nobody else will, and I got to read all kinds of fascinating stuff while researching the expansion.
I am looking forward to this in September, and am meanwhile rereading the Plumbers Mate series, and Caught! Men with bow ties are very interesting!
I enjoy my time spent reading your tales in general, thanks for putting your talents to good work.
Thank you! I’m currently writing Plumbers Mate #4, so it’s great to hear some encouragement! 😀
