You will enjoy this beautiful story, rich in history and appreciation of the past, while living and falling in love in the present. I highly recommend “Christmas in Bayeaux.”

BLURB: Aiden seeks out his childhood friend, Noel, in Bayeux, France. Can she help heal his lonely heart and convince him Christmas wishes do come true?
Her cheeks reddened, but she only gestured toward the hall. “It’s this way.”
They entered the main room and he saw that the tapestry hung on the wall opposite of them. It filled the space entirely. Aiden stood stock-still, admiring its craftsmanship.
“We believe it commemorates the Norman conquest of England in 1066. We all call it a tapestry, but it’s really an embroidery.” She paused, then pointed. “Of course, the hero is William the Conqueror. His forces defeated those led by the English king, Harold Godwinson.”
Aiden walked the length to the tapestry, marveling at the story and how the work had been well preserved for close to 1,000 years.
“Edward the Confessor had no heir so he sent Harold to tell William he would rule England once Edward died. Harold, however, usurped the throne.”
Aiden pointed to a star with a tail. “Is that a star?”
She grinned. “Modern interpretation believes it to be Haley’s comet. It was a bad omen for Harold.”
“What happened next?”
Noel giggled. “William conquered him.”
“Silly me. I should have known that.” He grabbed her waist and pulled her against him. Their eyes locked, hers smoldering with desire. Damn. He wanted to kiss her. Right now. Screw his willpower. Aiden grabbed her hand and led her to the nearest hallway. Empty, thank God.
