Dangerous Temptation (Dark Dream Book 1)

She’s the pawn in his dangerous game of revenge.
He arrives all dressed in black. Diamond cufflinks. A watch on his tanned wrist that cost more than we would ever see in a lifetime of work. He carries a single red rose…
It turns out he is my new guardian.

I should have known from the very start that he had more in common with the thorns than red roses. Now I know the truth: I’m a pawn in his dangerous game of revenge. I was too young and naive. Now it’s too late to save myself from his clutches.
Now I belong to him.

“Dark, decadent and provocative, Dangerous Temptation is one of my absolute favorite reads in 2021. Tiernan and Bianca set my Kindle on fire! Giana has weaved an exquisite story, I can’t wait for the next. READ THIS!!!” – RuNyx, bestselling author of Gothikana

The death of her mom leaves Bianca Belcante alone with just her younger brother to care for. At 17, she fears that child protective services will split them up via the foster care system. Reaching out to Tiernan was the only thing, the only person she felt she could contact, after all, he had been dating her mom and promised them a move to New York. Throughout the police, CPS and subsequent funeral she never lays eyes on him, yet grateful that for whatever reason he has decided to be a new guardian to two wards.

Dating Aida Belcante was a means to an end for Tiernan Morelli after discovering that she had been Lane Constantine’s mistress and had two children with him. Looking to get one over Caroline Constantine he hoped to find out who Lane had left an energy company to in his will. Aida’s death puts a spanner in the works but when Bianca told him that she needed him, it was both an invitation to change the plan slightly and also a pull towards her that was unexpected.

Navigating their new life in Bishops Landing is an adjustment, Tiernan showing Brando much love along with The Gentleman who are Tiernan’s friends and colleagues. Bianca is tormented by Tiernan’s monstrous rules, behaviour and actions, yet finds herself craving him. As Bryant Morelli pushes for the conclusion to the plan Tiernan begins to second-guess his actions. But when secrets are revealed is there a way that hurts can ever be forgiven?

Bianca has finally found her rightful place amid the powerful Constantines. But all is not what it seems in this glittering new world. And Tiernan Morelli refuses to give her up…

For his entire life, Tiernan Morelli has been seeking approval from his family, especially his father. His plan to utilise Bianca Belcante to get one up on the powerful Constantines and gain independence from Bryant has backfired when he realises that Bianca is the best mistake he has ever made.

But is shocked to discover that Bianca is staying at the Constantine compound.

Unsure how to feel about the revelations Tiernan’s family has just imparted to her, Bianca needs to leave but is found by Caroline Constantine who offers her a safe haven. Part of her always wanting to know what it would be like to be on the other side of the Constantine family she agrees. Soon they realise that there are secrets to be unearthed at the compound.
