‘Tempted by Danger’ is a romantic thriller that follows two sisters Angela and Nicole, who find themselves in a strange situation that endangers their lives. Angela Brooks is a married woman with a highly successful career. She is expecting a baby and wants the same balance in the personal life of her ambitious sister Nicole Brooks, who is doing great in her career as an attorney but has a non-existent love life. One day at work, Angela meets Michael, a charismatic and intellectual executive, and hires him for a job at her company.
Out of concern for her sister, Angela sets her up with Michael, and after initial reluctance, Nicole agrees to go on a date with him, without realizing the danger she is getting herself into. Everything goes fine until Nicole begins to realize that Michael is not as sweet as he portrays himself to be. She realizes Michael has a dark side, which is quite controlling and borderline obsessive. Things escalate quickly, and Nicole gets stuck in a life-threatening situation. Will Angela come to her sister’s rescue?
