About the Author

Sheri Humphreys used to be an Emergency Room nurse, but today applies bandages, splints, and slings to the characters of her Victorian romance novels. She loves to ignore yardwork and housework and read—usually a book every one to three days. Having conjured stories in her mind her entire life, she wondered if she were normal. Then she began putting stories to paper and became a two-time Golden Heart® finalist. She lives with a Jack Russell mix rescue, Lucy, in a small town on the central California coast.

A Hero to Hold received a prized Kirkus Star and was named to Kirkus Reviews' Best Books of 2016.

"I don't need to walk. Why walk when I can soar?" David said. The emotions that literally gripped my heart would not let go until the end. This is one of the best books I have read this year. Every story by Sheri Humphreys has been phenomenal and I just cannot say enough about them, especially this one. Her writing makes you truly feel the emotions of the characters and literally hold your breath waiting to see how everything turns out. The title is so appropriate and as you get to know David Scott, there is no doubt he is a literally a hero but one on the inside as well, although he feels broken on the outside. Charlotte is also broken but the other way around. Beautiful but so disillusioned and devoid of trust. But as fate brings them together and their attraction ignites, there is a force trying to bring harm to Charlotte that may win in the end. I know, as in all of her books, I will be thinking about this story for awhile. So emotional and thought provoking I would give this a 10*** if I could.. Definitely a keeper!!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Charlotte Haliday is a woman wounded by scandal and left emotionally crippled by her husband’s betrayal. David Scott is a wounded warrior confined to a wheelchair. Rejected by his last love because of his disability, he builds walls around his heart. A Hero to Hold is a complicated love affair revealing raw emotion and heart aching romance. The characters are wonderfully complex and real. Very steamy romance. Couldn’t put it down.

Sheri Humphrey is a new author to me so I wasn't quite sure what to expect when I purchased A Hero to Hold. What I got was a phenomenal read that put me right smack in the middle of London during the 1857 Victorian era. The story reads from beginning to end like a great movie. Charlotte Haliday thought she knew love until a series of events in her life uncovered the truth. With a wounded heart, she is unsure if she could love again. In A Hero to Hold, there is no ‘Knight and Shining Armor’ that comes in and sweeps her off her feet, but there is David Scott, a wounded solider confined to a wheelchair. A Hero to Hold touch’s on some of the most raw emotions that one feels when hurt, as well as the struggle just to feel normal again. There were several times in this book, that I had to stop and give pause to my vulnerabilities and the way I love. When an author make you pause and think, you know it’s good writing. Bravo to this very talented author for taking my heart on a well needed journey. A Hero to Hold will surely make my top ten favorite books for 2016.
