Women empowerment, overcoming adversity, social change, and hope were the cornerstones upon which Victoria Woodhull (1838–1927) and her younger sister Tennessee Celeste Claflin built their incredible lives in Victorian America.
OUTRAGEOUS, Rise to Riches sets the psychological verity and traces Victoria from childhood poverty and horrific abuse to becoming one of the wealthiest women in America, founding the first women-owned brokerage firm on Wall Street, and the first women-owned newspaper. Victoria will stop at nothing to achieve her destiny.
Neal Katz' debut novel, winner of 12 literary awards, is a historical fictionalized account of Victoria Woodhull's rise to presidential candidate and wealth, coming from poverty and abuse.
Volume One of The Victoria Woodhull Saga tells the poignant, lascivious, and compelling inside story of how the sisters worked closely with Cornelius Vanderbilt, who at age 74 fell in love with the beguiling 24-year old Tennessee. Victoria provided the titan of industry "Inside Her Information" gathered through the soiled sisterhood, the ladies of the evening working at the top seven brothels servicing the rich and famous of New York City.
This relationship resulted in the great lion of industry having his last public roar as together they manipulated the financial markets and created the impending collapse of the U.S. economy in the gold scandal of 1869. To avert the crash, President Ulysses S. Grant provides the richest man in America insider information on the gold market and telegrams Vanderbilt that his railroad company is "Too Big To Fail!" Vanderbilt was proclaimed "The Savior of the American Economy" for intervening in a crisis he helped create.

He was a notorious womanizer, often bedding, and sometimes impregnating the wives, sisters, and daughters of his most ardent trackers and deacons of the church.

Mary E. Thompson grew up loving to read, like a good little girl. Many nights she would fall asleep with the flashlight still turned on as she hid under the covers trying to finish the last few pages of a book. As an adult, the light from her ereader means she doesn't need a flashlight, but she still stays up way too late to finish a book.
When Mary's not reading she's playing with her two kids or living out her own romance novel with her hubby. She has a weakness for chocolate, especially when it's paired with peanut butter, and has been known to have a bad day just because there's no chocolate in the house.
Mary grew up in Buffalo, New York and swears she's the only local to never ski or snowboard. Soccer was always her sport, with a couple adventures white water rafting and skydiving to keep things interesting. Mary moved to South Carolina for college but missed Buffalo every day. Yeah she thinks she's crazy, too. She somehow convinced her South Carolina born and bred hubby to return to Buffalo to raise the kids and live out their lives. He’s still not sure what he was thinking.
Alyssa Wright has one goal before she leaves for college. She refuses to go carrying her v-card. She just has to find someone to give it to in the next six weeks.
When she runs into Jake Monroe, almost literally, she knows he's different. She thinks about him constantly, and not in the way she's thought about any other guy.
Between his new job and helping his best friend's widow, Jake doesn't have time for romance. But there's something about Alyssa he can't resist. He's torn between the light Alyssa brings to his world and the promise he made to his best friend.
What they want doesn't matter. There's a ticking clock, counting down the days until Alyssa leaves. Maybe for good.
She never thought she'd go back...
Fifteen years was a long time to be away, but not nearly long enough when Alyssa Morgan had nothing to show for her time. Unless you'd count three failed marriages, two parents she barely spoke to, one disastrous attempt at a college degree, and zero friends to count on.
He found himself at Amavita...
Jake Monroe thought about leaving Amavita Estates many times after Alyssa left him. Over the years, her family became his family. They accepted him. Loved him. Healed him. Her family was the family he never had, and without her around to remind him otherwise, he could pretend he was one of them.
Until she walked back into his world looking nothing like the girl he used to know.
Can their differences bring them together again?
Alyssa knows she needs to stay away from Jake. Jake wants nothing to do with her. But the chemistry that drew them together fifteen years ago is stronger than they are.
She has a secret...
Andie Young has always been good at hiding who she really is. Her emotions and truths have stayed buried beneath the sexy clothes, makeup, and endless amber waves that are her signature look. She had to do something to get attention. Between her three brothers and five cousins, she grew up feeling like the invisible one. So she changed that.
He's loved her forever...
Cody Powell has been attracted to Andie since the summer she turned seventeen. Off limits back then, and involved with one guy or another since, Cody has kept his adoration secret from her. He spent fifteen years avoiding Andie, and stammering like a fool when he was face to face with her.
Cody spends weeks fixing up her house and falling harder for her with each passing day. He knows she'd never be interested in a country boy like him, but seeing her dating other guys has finally taken its toll. Cody doesn't think he can handle it any longer.
They both want someone to share their lives with...
Is she strong enough to take a chance with Cody? Or will he finish her house and leave before she gets the chance to tell him how she feels?
When tragedy strikes...
Henry Wilson has been a strong and steady force for his family for years. When death steals one of them, Henry's ability to keep himself together is tested. Even surrounded by people, he's never had anyone to lean on. Not since he made the biggest mistake of his life and told his best friend he was in love with her.
Right before she disappeared from his life for good.
And the chips are down...
Cynthia Hill is inching closer and closer to the life she always feared. Still single, and now jobless, she's living back at home with her mom. It isn't as bad as she thought it would be, which scares her more than the way she thinks about her former best friend.
All they have is each other...
Henry knows getting involved with Cynthia won't lead to anything but pain. She'll go back to her life, and he'll be left to deal with one more heartbreak. One he isn't sure he'll survive.
His life was good...
Zach Bennett was content to go to work, hang out with his family and friends, and entertain a woman once in a while. As his family found love all around him, he was content to stay single. Unattached. Happy.
Besides, he had enough to worry about with a new chef breathing down his neck for his job.
She faced the truth every day...
Gianna Brooks always wanted to work with people. She saw enough growing up to know kids need all the help they can get. They deserved to be safe. Loved. Happy.
Which is why she's determined to get her new client into a forever home.
But the truth isn't always good...
The last thing Zach needs is a little girl showing up on his doorstep claiming she's his. Her social worker hot on her heels, and demanding a place to stay, definitely doesn't make it any better. Especially with Gianna's curvy body and bedroom eyes, and his daughter's sad sweetness, making him consider keeping both of them.
Gianna knows she should run. Zach knows he should send them away. But neither of them can resist the pull toward the other.
One night with a stranger...
Kicking herself for letting her guard down and actually connecting with the sexy man whose name she doesn't even know, Katherine misses the news that her toxic ex is back, and looking for her. She can't let him find her, so she doesn't think, she just runs.
He never thought he'd see her again...
Dillon doesn't know what to think when his one night stand shows up on his doorstep. He starts to turn her away, but the terrified look in her eyes triggers all his protective instincts, and he knows he can't let her leave.
Time is against them...
Dillon and Katherine grow closer every day. As her real life calls, they both know what's happening won't last, but that doesn't stop them from wanting it to.
