One night was all it took...
One night to ruin everything I thought I knew.

From the outside, I had the perfect lifestyle.
Wealthy fiancé, blossoming career, amazing friends.

I wasn’t looking to get married yet, but when William—“Manhattan’s royalty”—charmed his way into my life, I couldn’t deny the security and comfort that overcame me.

To society, I was the girl only after his money. I was the party-goer who managed to seduce a man twice my age to have the lifestyle some could only dream of. I was every magazine’s cliché of what a gold-digging whore was.

I wanted to prove them wrong—that our love was real and that I wasn’t that girl.

But then everything changed.
One wrong decision. One unfaithful night. One haunting reality.
Perhaps they were right.

The media didn’t see it coming... and neither did I. 

This is a stand alone romance suspense novel with no cliffhanger. HEA depends on who you ask. Recommended for readers 18 and up due to strong language and explicit sexual content.


A totally enjoyable, intoxicating read! Dangerous Temptations delves into a world of forbidden seduction, where you are left to wonder how something so wrong, can feel so right. This scandalous and scorching hot romance left me enamored and overheated. The blurb will reel you in, but you have no idea what wicked delights Ms. Cumberland has in store for you. Some of you avid romance readers might shy away from this book, and have some apprehension about the ‘one unfaithful night’ part in the synopsis. I for one, am not a big fan of cheating in romance novels, but surprisingly, I wasn’t turned off by it in this story. Yes, there was cheating, and yes there was remorse and regret and sometimes I wanted to lash out and sucker punch a character or two, but I was still captivated by their story, and totally engrossed in how and when the happily ever after would click into place. It became less about my anger because of the blatant unfaithfulness, and more about the beautiful love story that followed that one mistake.

Dangerous Temptations is about a woman who grew up with nothing, and is finally free to live comfortably with a man who takes care of her needs. It’s about what happens when temptations rise, and you can’t help but to discover what you are really missing in life: spontaneity, fireworks, and indescribable lust. You can fight, scrape, and claw all you want, denying a dangerous attraction that makes you feel alive, makes you feel on fire. When it comes down to it, do you follow your head or your heart?

Be prepared for this to take you by surprise! A bombshell had me questioning everything! The emotional pull was intense, and the love scenes were on fire! Dangerous Temptations was an all around delicious and sexy read! Brooke Cumberland does a nice job of giving us a dash of suspense with our romance.
