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.

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.

About jlmerrow

JL Merrow is that rare beast, an English person who refuses to drink tea. She read Natural Sciences at Cambridge, where she learned many things, chief amongst which was that she never wanted to see the inside of a lab ever again. Her one regret is that she never mastered the ability of punting one-handed whilst holding a glass of champagne. She writes across genres, with a preference for contemporary gay romance and the paranormal, and is frequently accused of humour. Find JL Merrow online at:

    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.

    A fan,
