Lady Angeline Delgado is caught in a
nightmare that she can’t seem to wake up from. First her

Having to rest, their party has traveled to Shroudskull, a

is going to have to seduce her captor – but can a summoner
even experience pleasure?
Summoner is a story of a
young woman who is thrust into the darker part of life and
exposed to rough BDSM just because she is a woman. Lady
Angeline learns some of the nastier facts of sex after being
kidnapped while traveling to the lord she has been promised
