The four Lifetime Original Movies based on Roberts' books, which will premiere on four consecutive Monday nights beginning January 29, are:

-- Nora Roberts' Angels Fall - Premiering January 29 Heather Locklear and Johnathon Schaech star in the story of a Boston chef looking to make a fresh start.

-- Nora Roberts' Montana Sky - Premiering February 5 When a multimillionaire cattleman dies, he leaves a will requiring his three daughters -- half sisters and strangers to one another -- to spend 12 months together on his ranch in order to claim their inheritance.

John Corbett, Charlotte Ross, Ashley Williams and Diane Ladd star.

When she falls for a carpenter named Bo (Matthew Settle), Reena must turn the tables on her pursuer before her life goes up in flames. Also starring Scott Bakula and Talia Shire.

-- Nora Roberts' Carolina Moon - Premiering February 19 When Tory (Claire Forlani) returns to her hometown to rebuild her life, she begins to have strange visions of the death of a childhood friend.
