Fans can go to Lifetimetv.com to watch an extended video clip featuring Roberts' cameo appearances. If they successfully click on Roberts in the video, an entry form for the contest will be accessible and the contestant's information can be submitted instantly.

In addition, Lifetime viewers who visit the special Nora Roberts section at Lifetimetv.com will also have the opportunity to read exclusive excerpts from Roberts' next two books, Innocent in Death (due out February 20) and High Noon (due out July 10). The previews will be available only using a keyword to be revealed during movie telecasts.

Other features on the site include a Q&A with Roberts, video interviews with the author and executive producer Peter Guber, cast blogs and interviews, photos, video excerpts, a trivia game, a complete broadcast schedule and a Nora Roberts bookstore.

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. When her car breaks down in Wyoming, Reece (Locklear) lands a job in a local diner. Almost as soon as she begins to think of this new town as home, menacing things start happening that cause Reece to question her own sanity.

-- 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. But when it turns out their father may have left some enemies behind determined to sabotage them, the women must learn to work together or lose the money. John Corbett, Charlotte Ross, Ashley Williams and Diane Ladd star.

-- Nora Roberts' Blue Smoke - Premiering February 12 Alicia Witt stars as Reena, an arson investigator being stalked by a pyromaniac. 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. Tory discovers that the murder was just the first in a series. If she doesn't figure out who the killer is, she'll be the next victim. Also starring Oliver Hudson and Jacqueline Bisset.
