At first glance, Angela and Nick don’t seem to have much in common: she’s a young widow trying to make ends meet, and he’s a self-made billionaire in his mid-thirties. He’s confident, well-educated and eloquent; she’s shy, has struggled through school and communicates more easily with horses than with people.
But they share a deep, aching loneliness and the need for a brief escape – Angela from the ghosts of her past, and Nick from his uncertain future.
When the clock strikes midnight, will it bring the end or a new beginning?
Two years after her divorce, Hannah is ready to move on. But when her friend pushes her to go on a blind date with a gallery owner, Hannah is hesitant. She’s attracted to Edward, an architect who works in the same building, even though they’ve barely exchanged two words.
Edward also has a blind date. The woman he’s about to meet, according to his friend, is “brilliant and gorgeous”. Edward would be intrigued, if only he could stop thinking of the quiet, shy and sexy-as-hell Hannah, the book editor from the top floor.
“This novella in two parts had a fascinating premise. The stories were quick paced and interesting. While I’m not a fan of first person stories, I quiet enjoyed this duo. My only complaint…the heat levels of the two stories seemed unbalanced with the second story much hotter and the first much more romantic. Overall…a fast trip to sensual romance well worth taking. Kaufman weaves a fabulous story of chance romance.”
Once Upon a Night is a novella in two stories. Kaufmann writes about love gone wrong, love done right, and the barriers people put up between. Each story is short, spicy and romantic. The characters are sympathetic; the stories believable. Kaufmann’s Blind Date is a hot interlude for a cold night!”

“I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleased with what I read… Everything flowed beautifully and with enough tension to keep me reading. I loved each of these stories…” (Kara)
“…Couldn’t put it down until I finished both… Well worth reading!”
“WOW! Once you start the book, it’s hard to put it down. Loved Nick and Angela’s story. Wish the second story was longer!”
