Book Description

David Drake knows what he wants, in the boardroom and the bedroom, and he'll fight the devil himself to get it. But there are powerful, vindictive, ruthless men who want what he must have, and they, too, will stop at nothing to get it. Revenge is a powerful motivation, and winning is the sweetest. From California to the Caribbean, from back alley's to the most swank boardrooms in the land, David scraps with the toughest and most powerful to win what, and who, he loves.

From the boardroom to the bedroom David Drake intends to get what he wants, but some of the country's most powerful and vindictive men stand in his way...and they must have what David wants, no matter the cost. Revenge is a powerful motive, and sometimes winning is the sweetest....

Editorial Reviews

From the Author

L. J. Martin is the author of over 30 book length works from Bantam, Avon, and Pinnacle.  He lives in Montana with his wife, NYT bestselling romantic suspense author Kat Martin.  The Martins travel extensively for their books.  They winter in California, where both were raised.  
L. J. is particularly suited to write a business thriller as he was in the real estate and finance business for the first half of his life, including the brokerage of many premium wine and table grape vineyards, and the development of homes and commercial properties.

From the Inside Flap

L. J. Martin spent the early part of his life in the real estate and finance business in California, working primarily on large agricultural and land development projects.  His knowledge of the industry permeates his classic business thriller...and poignant love story.  WINDFALL is the story of head-to-head gut-wrenching business conflict, and heart-to-heart pulse-pounding, sometimes frustrating, love affair.
But the machinations of the boardroom pale in the heat of the bedrooms, and sometimes rotten underbellies of the backrooms, as powerful men meet their match with equally powerful, and beautiful, women.
Let WINDFALL take you on a wild, raucous, ride that will leave you gasping for breath, yet hoping it never ends.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner by L.J. Martin February 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've read several of Larry's western novels, so was anxious to read one that takes place in a modern-day "bedroom and boardroom" setting. I wasn't disappointed.

The characters are well-developed and the plot intriguing. I liked moving back and forth between locales, including the ultra-urban San Francisco and the rural ranch. I could easily picture both - and seeing the hero in both helped define his character in interesting ways. Without giving anything away, I have to say that I alternated between loving and hating David - which shows you how well the main character was developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another I couldn't put down. February 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was first introduced to this author with the book Tin AngelI was a virgin to the western read, in Angel and I couldn't but it down. While the style is enough to know it is the same author, I didn't find myself in a repeated or cliche story. I was again a virgin to this genre. I'm actually a little bit annoyed because I don't usually read more than one nonfiction book (exclusive of children's books) but this author is very multiple settings.

3.0 out of 5 stars Kind of good July 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not much more than a constant romp in the hay as they say. A little less of that kind of filler of falling in and out of bed would be a good start on a better book. Story not too bad when you get through the boring fluff of he did she did stuff.

3.0 out of 5 stars Annoying April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First Kindle book I was actually skipping ahead to get it over with. My review would have ended with that one comment but evidently Amazon requires verbosity!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of L.J. Martin's best April 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book has everything from aerial combat to romance to financial intrigue. The characters are well developed and the reader either loves or hates them as designed. The ending is satisfying. A great read overall.

A very outdated book, but not a bad story line. If I had checked to see when the book was written I might not have ordered it.
