Presets turning photos dark and orange?

I've been an avid photoshop user for many, many years but have decided to give Lightroom a shot. First go has not been great. 

I've downloaded maybe 15 different presets with a range of color and light options, from bright teal pop to basic portrait edits. No matter which ones I've tried, they're always causing my photos to turn shades of orange with lowered exposure and added contrast. Thinking it was just the computer, I brought them over to my iPad and I get the same results.


These are raw files that came from my D800 with basic adjustments. I've attached 4 photos showing an example of before and after plus what the action looks like before and after. This is happening to every photo with every preset to slightly different extents between both my iPad and iMac.
