Charity's Circulating Library
An Unwanted Touch
Innocent Hazel Camden joins society on her first season with four of her best friends. For the past two years, the group has been going to the local Circulating Library where they are in a book club with the librarian. The gowns, dancing, and extravagance of her first season take her off her guard, and Hazel dreams of finding a love like the kind she enjoys reading about.
Charles Evans, a rake with a reputation, sees Hazel, and he finds himself lusting after her beauty. For half his life, Charles has been trying to prove himself to be the kind of man his father expects. He is taken off guard by Hazel's faith, gentleness, and passion.
As Hazel and Charles grow close, their lives are forever changed.
