Meryl Sawyer is the New York Times bestselling author of twenty-five romantic suspense novels. Meryl has won the ROMANTIC TIMES Career Achievement Award for Contemporary Romantic Suspense. She was twice a finalist in the Romance Writers of America’s national contest with LAST NIGHT and A KISS IN THE DARK. But the award that makes her the proudest is the national READER’S CHOICE AWARD because readers themselves vote on this and selected THE HIDEAWAY for this honor. Meryl lives in Newport Beach, CA and is currently working on her next novel.
