The Samoa Seduction is a story of lovers trapped by a conspiracy to gain millions through the black market sale of an untested but apparently successful stem-cell cure for diabetes.
Federal employee Michael Bloom travels to American Samoa to fight for higher minimum wages, unaware that his efforts could scuttle the conspiracy. Facing opposition at every turn, he becomes the object of romantic advances of Stephanie Palaie Moelai, beautiful Director of the Visitor's Information Bureau. When Michael becomes a threat to the conspiracy, Stephanie sells out, trading her love of Michael for her family's security. Michael is suddenly beset by a mysterious illness that almost costs him his life, leaving him disabled and unemployed.
Three years later, Michael is a fugitive from the law, fleeing to the South Pacific to find the men who wrecked his family and left him for dead. Stephanie, tortured by her feelings for the love of her life, and fearing an investigation into fraud, abuse, and murder associated with the Samoan minimum wage process, returns to the assumed safety of her family in American Samoa.
With untold riches at stake, the conspirators will stop at nothing to finally put Michael away.
A vicious, female CEO assumes leadership of the conspiracy. With the presidential candidate under her thumb in the lead, she will stop at nothing to see that he becomes the next U.S. President. Rob and his allies work to alter the course of the election while the CEO's paramour resists her dominance and threatens exposure.

According to Diane Dixon of Midwest Book Review, "The story moves with the precision of a game of chess. Nothing is guaranteed -- not even the survival of favorite characters. Even the most seasoned thriller reader will find Surviving The Endgame filled with delightfully unexpected moments."
